Sounds like a capacitor fail. Take it apart and look for bad capacitors. They look like little soda cans. With silver tops. These should be flat . If they are bulging and leaking something or just budging replace them . Remember these have a + and a - side replace them in the same order.

It's tryingto tell you it sees Surround Back speakers connected but NO Surround Speakers. That is not a logical configuration. See Page 112 of the manual for the error and Page 13 for the solution.

Does your reciever use a remote control?

If so, you should be aware that on many recievers and surround amplifiers some of the functions may only be accessible via the remote control (the best way to learn about it is to consult the user manual).

I have a Pioneer VSA-730 surround amplifier and the only way i can change the mix levels for surround/sub/center speakers is by a remote control. My friend had the same problem and, after reading the manual, he discovered that he actually needs to use the remote control to access all functions of the amplifier.

Good luck and best regards

PCM mode will not output dobly digital, use the digital cable connection, not RCA cables, set DVD audio output menu to Dolby digital or DTS. On DVD software menu setup select audio then Dolby Digital 5.1 or Dolby Surround.

Hello Sandy, for what you say, it is very likely that the system that raises and lowers the arm is hardened or locked
It would have to disarm and clean the mechanism
I do not suggest you do so, contact a specialized technical service
I hope I can solve the problem

Hola Sandy, por lo que cuentas, es muy probable que se encuentre endurecido o trabado el sistema que sube y baja el brazo
Habria desarmar y hacer una limpieza al mecanismo
No le sugiero que lo haga, pongase en contacto con un servicio tecnico especializado
Espero pueda resolver el problema

Hello Azhar, for what you comment, your Yamaha is protecting itself, that's why it stops emitting sound and listens that the relay is working, it's not a problem of relay
I recommend that you check the cables and speaker connections, that there is no short circuit, also check that all the speakers are heard, in each speaker
Try disconnecting the baffle from the left channel and check if the sound of the right baffle is cut, then disconnect the right one and reconnect the left one, also check if it cuts
If in some cases it is cut, that is the channel that is wrong or with problems
If you have technical knowledge, disarm the amplifier and do a cleaning and check possible false contacts, which could cause the failure, Just do this, If you have technical knowledge, but approach a specialized technical service
I hope you can solve the problem

Hola Azhar, por lo que comentas, tu Yamaha se esta protegiendo, por eso deja de emitir sonido y escuchas que el rele esta funcionando, no es un problema de rele
te recomiendo que revises los cables y conexiones de parlantes, que no haya ning?n corto circuito, tambi?n revisa que se escuchen todos los parlantes, en cada bafle
Prueba desconectar el bafle del canal izquierdo y f?jate si se corta el sonido del bafle del derecho, luego desconecta el derecho y reconectas el izquierdo, tambi?n comprueba si se corta
Si en alguno de los casos se corto, ese es el canal que esta mal o con problemas
Si tienes conocimientos t?cnicos, desarma el amplificador y hazle una limpieza y revisa posibles falsos contactos, que pudieran producir la falla, Solo haz esto, Si tienes conocimientos t?cnicos, sino ac?rcate e un servicio t?cnico especializado
Espero puedas resolver el problema

5 seconds shut down: dc protection triggered. (DC outputted from speaker terminals.)Make sure +B and -B are equal first . The problem also comes from voltage amp circuit board including differential amp and constant current source but power transistors mounted are ok. Remember to download HTR 6130 service manual .

Hello Claude, try replacing the cable of your laptop, if it still fails, change input on the Yamaha or try another notebook, this way you are discarding fault elements
It would be good if you commented that the brand and model is your portable
I hope you can hear your laptop on your Yamaha
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Claude, prueba reemplazar el cable de tu portatil, si aun falla, cambia de entrada en el Yamaha o prueba con otro portatil, de esta manera vas descartando elementos de falla
Seria bueno que comentes que marca y modelo es tu portatil
Espero que logres escuchar tu portatil en tu Yamaha

Hello Dianna, check that the cable that goes from the decoder is well connected, if so, change it for another of the same characteristics, if this continues the problem, connect the decoder to another input of the TV, if it still does not work, connect the decoder on another TV and check that you see it, if this is so, you would have to have the TV checked at a specialized technical service
You have not specified which TV model you have
I hope you have served my suggestions
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Dianna, controla que el cable que va desde el decodificador se encuentre bien conectado, si es as?, c?mbialo por otro de iguales caracter?sticas, si as? continua el problema, conecta el decodificador en otra entrada del televisor, si aun as? no funciona, conecta el decodificador en otro televisor y comprueba que lo vea, si esto es as?, tendr?as que hacer revisar el televisor en un servicio t?cnico especializado
No has especificado que modelo de televisor tienes
Espero te haya servido mis sugerencias
