    I've had the Yammy 595 for about a year or so now, and the centre channel doesn't work. It did work when I first got the amp, but stopped at some point. I didn't have the time to do anything about it, so just used the ghost centre mode.

    Now I want to do something about it though.

    Basically the centre speaker out doesn't do anything; the actual speaker works as I can plug it into one of the other speaker outs and get sound, and plug another speaker into the centre channel and get nothing.

    Is it sfae to poke about inside, and see if there's a dry-joint or anything, or would it be better to send it off to get fixed?

    If the worst comes to the worst, are there any powered centre speakers with built-in amps, so I could feed the centre phono out into it?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Check the settings first, perhaps you have accidently set it to "NONE"!?
    Though I guess that's what you mean with "ghost"-mode.
    Else check the cable, the tiny wires might short the output somewhere so doublecheck.
    As well check the impedance switch on the back (if any), flip only when the unit is in standby / powered off.

    After that I would conclude a faulty amp, if it's out of warranty open it (unplug power first!) and check for any fuse or dry joints.

    If I can't eat it, drink it or fudge it, I ain't interested.

    You get a 2 year warranty with Yamaha anyway, so you can't lose.

    I've checked the menus, the cabling and the impedance switch in both positions, and nothing. I do think that the actual amp bit is just dead, bit it may be something really simple.

    Also-

    I didn't know Yammy had a 2 year warranty... I will look at my paperwork and see what I can get done/what it covers...

    Thanks,

    Steve

    It covers it all except abuse and the like.
