I have no output from the right surround speaker on my sadx950. Yes it is an older receiver but I'd hate to part with it. I recently purchased a Panasonic DMP-BD80 Blu-Ray player because it has analog audio outputs which sound great with this receiver.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Perhaps a bad capacitor or other DIY fix? I have not had a look inside yet.
Thanks

Before replacing electronics, have you tried:

- connecting the left surround speaker to that right output?
- swapping the multichannel cables to ensure a good connection
- make sure that you've set up the speaker user settings for the appropriate number/type of speakers in both the AVR and the BD player?
- unplug/replug the AVR and BD player to "reboot" them.

Thank you for your reply 57.
The cable and the speaker both work fine on a different channel so I believe it's a receiver issue. I will check one more time to be absolutely certain.

I understand that Hamilton is a long-long way away from Markham, but push come to shove and you need me to check your receiver (both from connection standpoint and internal integrity of it), if you can bring it to me I'll be more than glad to check it out for you free of charge.

Sorry to hear about your receiver. I know how you feel, I have the same receiver.
If I remember right there is a help feature the should say something if your rear channel gets disconnected so if it says nothing its likely not working.

Just found this on fixya, the poster said his back channel started working when he turned the volume up fairly high and then it continued to work at lower volumes after that:

The most likely culprit here is the output protection relay. The contacts are a little corroded and the higher volume "jumps the gap" temporarily "cleaning" the contacts. The relay should be changed. I don't have the manual with me, but the following relays are in the unit. One of them is the speaker relay:

Part # Cost
RSY0054-C $12.63
RSY0040M-0 $ 5.89
K6B2AHA00014 $ 8.14

Thanks to all for the replies. I actually decided to upgrade to an HK AVR2600 for my HT receiver and use the Technics for music only which means 2 channels will do just fine.
Thanks again!
