Hi, I'm Benjamin. Welcome to our site. I'm reviewing your question now and I'll reply with more details ASAP.

So I understand you have the Yamaha receiver and your LG TV and you need to hook up the speakers you just got back from repair, right?

Do you have the center channel (speaker in the front) hooked up, but not the surround speakers?

This should be what the back of your device looks like, is that what you are seeing?
