No sound from front speakers - TEAC AG-D8900 receiver

by rustbowl / June 23, 2007 12:24 PM PDT


This is a follow up to an earlier post. I have a TEAC AG-D8900 5.1 receiver and I'm having trouble with the front speaker sound. I thought the sound from the front speakers was dead altogether, but I was able to get sound from them for about 5 seconds by ejecting and re-inserting the speaker wire. I've since not been able to repeat this effect. I've tried different speakers, speaker wire and different surround sound settings to not effect. I've also tried shortening the length of the speaker wire. I've contacted the manufacturer and there are no fuses that effect the speaker sound.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be? Or any suggestion on how to 'reboot' or refresh the logic board. I'm all out of ideas and it would cost as much to service the unit as to buy newer one. I appreciate any assistance anyone can offer. Thanks.

Other than looking for possible fuses, I'm afraid you have

to face the possibility of replacement. The Teac wasn't very expensive. Sorry you didn't get more years out of it. Todays electronics repair costs are very high for a diagnostic look.

The c/net reviews of entry level receivers indicates better thought of ones at pretty reasonable cost.

YES, I GUESS THEY DO; but they shouldn't. Consider it a goner, just write it off. Give us a budget and info on how many channels you intend to drive; C-net members will be happy to help you make an informed decision.

Don't worry, we're not going to push a $1,000.00 A/V/Receiver on you.

Best shopping,
