Okay thank you. It is a confusing issue. All sound on all devices except center speaker and subwoofer not working. Even when in test mode no noice from the 2 front or the 2 rear speakers.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No thank you about the phone call, Not now. I. The middle of something else. It may be the way though.
Yeah, I did not offer the phone call service yet. But I'm more then happy to talk to you as well. Just let me know if the reset worked out.

Okay. We did think of that. But wanted to see if there was some simpler bottom we may have pushed. Thanks. I’ll get back to you.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I guess we will try the reset. But probably not for some time maybe even tomorrow.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Okay. Which one first?
Try to do the reset first, then the firmware update.

we tried the reset it didn’t work. Because the amp is not WiFi and we don’t have a cable long enough to reach router we have not tried update. But we think it most likely will no be that. One day it was working the next ..... so we think hardware and will take it to a shop. Thanks for your help it was a good try.
The unit has a Net board which has the Audio chip on it. The board cost less then a $100 and Labor is around $50-60. It is worth giving it a try. Good luck sir. If you could rate my service, I would greatly appreciate it, since that is the only way I would be compensated for my assistance.

Thought you might want to know the outcome. When we checked wires they looked ok because they were all connected. However, we had had a rat running free for a bit and it lived chewing wires I guess, Further up the line then right at the receiver. The Center speaker and sub woofer were connected with much thicker cable like wires thus they worked. We discovered this when getting the receiver ready to take to the shop. Receiver is okay. Rats love to chew slightly electric wires I guess.

Bet that’s a new one huh!
Wow, I'm glad you find that out and it does not need a repair. Thanks for the info. Happy Holidays
