Picked up a SWA-8500S rear speaker kit to go with my S60T soundbar. I cannot for the life of me get my left rear speaker to work.  My right speaker works fine. The speaker wire is making proper contact. I've tried two separate speakers and they don't work in the left port but work in the other.  Is my receiver busted? Any other ideas for me to try before I give up? Thanks.

Make sure the wire's bare metal is touching the contact at the front. If it is on the outer insulation it might not close and contact all the way.

You've tried different speakers but have you tried different wire? It's rare but the wire can go bad. It's happened to me and took forever to resolve because I never thought to check that.
