I am having a new problem with my Yamaha Rx-V657 Receiver. It was working well until recently, when the surround sound speakers stopped working in Dolby Digital.
I did lots of problem solving to see what was wrong...I switched out wires, swapped left and right, etc.
I have figured that the problem lies in the receiver itself, as it actually works correctly with 7 channel Stereo .... I get all the speakers working with it.
When I try auto setup, I get error E-6 -- Surround Error.
I tried a factory reset...didn't help.
I should mention that although this is a 7.1 receiver, I am not using the middle speakers...only the back speakers.
So, is my receiver toast? Am I out the several hundred dollars I paid for it? Would it even pay to repair this even if I could? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
