Have it on surround the other 4 speakers work fine. It's a 6.1 receiver and the hookups are plugged in correctly. It was working the day before.


Anyone know of common problems why it would just stop working and how I can fix it?

Time to do some troubleshooting. Switch the connections on the AVR to the L/R speakers. If the R speaker starts playing, the problem is in the AVR. If the R speaker remains silent and the L speaker still plays, the problem is in the R speaker its connections.

What brand and model are these speakers?

Do you own an ohm meter?

OK, so since both front speakers shut off, the problerm is with the receiver. You probably have a loose solder joint that opens when the receiver warms up. You may be able to isolate the problem and fix it, but it's only a matter of time before you have several more similar problems.


I learned my lesson a long time ago not to buy used receivers. I was burned a couple of times buying refurbished receivers that only lasted a couple of years. The only things I'll buy used are passive speakers that don't have a woofer. Woofers tend to dry out and crack over time.

Woofers don't dry out and crack if they're indoors and not roasting in the sun all the time. Surrounds will rot but they are easily replaceable. I've also had quite a few refurbished products and more often than not they've worked great for me. Although I agree that it's pretty much a crapshoot with refurbished stuff.

I guess I wasn't detailed enough. The surrounds of the woofers dry out and crack.
