No sound out of speakers -- receiver or speaker wire?

No stereo sound from home theatre system. I am using wharfdale surround sound 5 speaker set with TV/CD/Receiver system.  I had one speaker working.  I used that working speaker wire to test all the other speakers and the produced sound -- so, the speakers themselves are ok.   The wires are coming from a Panasonic SA-XR50 AV control reciever which is 2 years old. The outputs for the speaker wire are the 'clamp down' type.  with two that are 'screw cap'.  Now, none of the speakers are working.  I am back to using the sound from the TV. 

Can anyone help me with this problem? any suggestions?

If you tested all of the

If you tested all of the speakers, you basicly answered your question my freind.  Your reciver/amp has a problem in it.  Sorry to say bud, but in these cases it is nor worth having these types of recivers repaired.  it would cost about the same if not more to repair it as it would to replace it now a days.  It is just a shame, We the greatest nation around, have become a throw a way society!Cool

Ya, totall agree.  I might

Ya, totall agree.  I might just check the speaker wires one more time but think you are right and the reciever is shot.  2 years is too short to throw out technology.  or is there a way to recycle equipment? maybe if we looked at the total cost of the repairing vs throwing out the item, I should get it repaired.  eg. what is the cost of technology in land fill and pollution? 

thanks for your prompt response!
