I'm sure this is a common problem, but I am getting a "speaker Detection error" whenever I run Audyssey. Here are the details:
First time setup audyssey ran flawlessly. Then I break the setup down yesterday in order to install my flat panel on the wall.

When I moved the speakers I didn't drop them.

Ran audyssey and get the aforementioned error on the first (front left) speaker it tests. I have tested the left and right speakers in the left position (ie swapped). So I don't think it's a hardware problem with the speakers.

The speaker returns the test tones. All the speakers appear to work as they did before when watching tv etc.

I tried switching posts on the amp (emotiva ips-1) Checked the manual to make sure I had the cables in the correct pre outs for the 886.

I also checked the mic cord and there are no cuts in the jacket. Mic is at the center cushion of the couch on a camera tripod. Anything else I'm missing? Any help is appreciated.

Check polarity of left speaker. If everything is correct, try reset processor to factory defaults.

I haven't tried re setting the processor, but I'm running out of options. It's either that or order a new mic at this point. All of the speakers are the correct polarity. Who knows how much that little mic will cost, I'm sure onkyo or audyssey will gouge me for a new one.

Try this:

Go to the Onkyo PR-SC 886P Pre/Pro Official Thread. Search for post #2784 and follow the instructions.

Or -

E-mail Onkyo customer support. They will respond with the instructions in a prompt manner.

Cheers,
SB

Well I just took the pro and audyssey mic up to a dealer and we tested the mike on a high end Denon and got the same result. So, it looks like I have a bad mic. I'll order a new one and if that doesn't work then I'll revive this thread from the crypt.

If the unit is still under warranty contact Onkyo support and they will send you a mic free.

I blew out a couple of mic's unknowingly with static electricity. Now, I always ground myself before plugging it in/out and haven't had any problems since.
