Default Weird problem, need help!!

So, i have had a Yamaha dvx-c310 surround sound system w/ a 5 changer dvd player. I have had it for about 3 months, no problems at all. I go to turn it on today and i get a static coming from my center speaker. All 4 of the other speakers are all crystal clear tho. I have tried unplugging everything and reattaching. I have tried new speaker wire. I have even tried an old center speaker i had and hooked that up and still it is all static.

Would anyone know what is going on and how this could be fixed? Thanks in advance!

Need a little more info. What sound source are you using (CD player, DVD player, etc.). How is it connected to the receiver (optical cable, coaxial, analog)? Have you checked the connections between your device and the receiver?

The reciever is a dvd player all in 1. I am connected from a coaxial cable from my DVR to the reciever. I have tested all the connections, unplugged everything and plugged it back in. All the speakers connectors are on the back of the subwoofer which connects to the reciever. It is just the middle speaker that is giving me static. All the other speakers are fine. I have tried different speakers on that middle one as well and still static. I really dont know what the problem could be except faulty wiring inside the reciever itself to just the middle speaker.

If it happens when you play a DVD (internal) and cable (external) it is not a connection issue like your Fear IMO. Since you switched speakers and speaker wires around, that rules that out as well. I also assume you tried all the different settings (PCM/Bitstream) and modes....
If so, it sounds like your center channel may be toast. If it is only 3 months old I would just get Yamaha on the like for suggestions and or replacment..

All the speaker wires are connected to the back of the sub, and there is a power plug from the sub to the reciever. I just don't understand why it would only be the center speaker tho.

And its not just for dvd or cable, as the previous poster asked. It is any time i turn on the reciever. Weather it be, dvd, xbox, cable or radio. This is just really frustrating!

Like was stated before it is only 3 months old and you have checked all the obvious things so I would just return it and get a replacement.

they'll probably charge you to ship it to a fix-it shop and fix it under warranty. I just did this for my Outlaw receiver. It kinda stinks to pay for the shipping but hey, that's the cost of ownership I guess.
