I was harmlessly watching my Fight Club DVD last night, and then my front left main just stopped playing without warning!! I checked the wires to the speaker and the receiver, and they both looked fine. I disconnected both, and reconnected them; still no sound?? My DVD player sends audio to the DVD plugs in the back of my receiver (Onkyo TX-DS696). I checked them and still no luck.
My cable comes through my VCR which goes into plug video 1. It too does not receive any audio through it when I turn up the volume. I checked the wires for the vcr and the receiver and they are also fine. I used the calibration test on the receiver and the test signal comes though the speaker just fine. What gives!?!?!?!?!? So I try the vcr again, still nothing.
Ok, so now I give the ol tape deck a try. Eureka, we have beautiful sounds coming from the speaker. Next the ol CD changer, it too works!!! The tape deck and the CD changer both hook up to their respectively labeled plugs in the back of the receiver. I try the DVD player and vcr again.......still no luck.
I am out of ideas, can somebody please give me another idea to try??? PLEASE
