Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi , I`m Jack Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first a few questions ;
How do you mean " powering up in stereo " ?
Do you mean setting the sound mode to stereo or disconnecting all other speakers ?
You mean "right front" speaker when you say "right main" i take it ?
O.k and while going through the test mode it indicates a shorted speaker ?
Can you still hear the test tone on that speaker ?
It also shuts down while trying to play it in surround mode ?
In any case here is something for you to try ;
First simply disconnect the wire at the back of the receiver for that speaker and try the test tone again .
If that works (no shutdown) then try to swap the left and right speaker wires and try it again
I would take it that " correct" is the answer to my second to last reply , can you see what I asked after that ?
O.k then here it is again ;
Let me know how that goes
Still with me ?
No problem ,
That test will also allow you to check the wiring at the back and the speakers themselves when swapped .
