Speaker protection fault on rx-v557

When the unit is switched on the display comes up as normal, after speaker connection delay the unit switches off.Sometimes you can hear the speaker relay click, other times there is no click, the unit just turns off. Have disconnected all cablesw from rear of unit and result is the same. The fault has progressed from just occurring a couple of times then unit would work, but now the fault is continuous. When the unit did connect to the speakers it worked fine. Only once did it turn off after during use after an hour or so. The unit first started to play up within warranty, but was intermitent, the fault only became permanent after warranty expiered. hope someone may have a solution to this problem

Hello, you must first tested with a voltmeter in DC entrance if you have a DC voltage on all the terminal outlet speaker, normally you must obtain 0Vdc+/-50mV on each out speaker with control volume to minimum, you can stay or remove the speakers during this test.

I have a Yamaha rx-v367. The HDMI plays video from my blue Ray but no sound. Tuner, no sound. IPod, no sound. Phone was hooked up in multiple inputs. No sound. I'm stuck here. Please help.


It sounds like the Yam can switch video sources but the audio amplifier section is dead. Although I'm not familiar with this unit, simple logic tells me that unless it's a mulit-channel and/or surround sound" setting, the audio section of your Yamaha has failed. If the Yam has speaker protection mode (5-10 sec. delay when 1st turned on) it's possible that a defective speaker (or speaker wire) could be causing the protection circuit to NOT connect amp-to-speakers. Disconnect one speaker at a time (at rear connection on Yamaha) to see if audio returns.

How do I fix my audio/video receiver that has no sound coming out of it?


If your unit has a speaker protection mode (5-8 second delay when 1st turned on) defective speakers and/or speaker wiring may be causing the protection circuit to do its job...protect the speakers. Disconnect all speakers and test HK in all modes (tuner, CD, DVD, etc.) using headphones. If you still cannot hear audio then it's time for a shop repair. Although I recommend factory authorized service whenever possible, a "local" shop that is certified by other well-known brands may be an option. If Yamaha, Onkyo or Luxman certified your local repair shop then it's a sure bet that they can properly repair HK's no longer under warranty.

Comes up when switched on protection


Protect occurs when 1 or more of your speaker wires is touching somewhere. Power off the receiver, connect speaker wires to receiver and speakers again, power back on, should fix the issue.


Protet mode is a special diagnostic mode that starts when a fault is detected.

When in protection mode the unit is prevented from starting by protection circuit, so to prevent further damage.

Check the speakers and speakers wiring, a contact in speaker wires, or faulty speakers can send the unit in protection.

Try unplugging power cable for one hour or so. then connect cable back and see if you get rid of protect state. Sometimes accumulation of electrostatic charges inside circuit capacitors can kick in protect mode. In that case unplugging the unit from main for some times can get rid of electrostatic charges, and reset circuits by draining power completely.
If that was the problem, you will not get Protect when plugging back power cable.

If you do all the above and still get Protect, then there is a real fault.

In that case the unit may be disassembled and tested to find the fault.

If that is the case I suggest contacting the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual, or asking a quote on repair to a local technician.

When i put on my 3600 protect come on right away


Hi there,

I'd suggest switching the power off then disconnecting all of your speakers, then switch the power on again. If the PROTECT warning still comes on, you have a fault within the amp. If not, re-connect your speakers one at a time and power down between connecting each one. If you get the PROTECT message after connecting a particular speaker, you have found the cause of the fault and you should inspect the speaker cable and connections for that speaker and replace if damaged.

If you reconnnect all of the speakers and the message does not appear, one of your speakers probably wasn't connected correctly.

Hope this helps. Please try this and post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

The unit keeps turning off with error code fp coming up then turning off again. the unit is a yamaha av reciever rx-v540


Let's just treat this as self-protection:

Make sure all speaker connections are tight.

Make sure the Impedance Selector switch it set fully in one of its two positions.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

After turning ON the power/standby switch, the unit(receiver) display comes ON (green light) then after approx.4-5 seconds the display goes OFF and the unit defaults back to the standby mode (red light). I...


Is the red light flashing at first?
The unit may be going into protect mode. Lets hope it has done the job and the receiver has protected itself from failure.
Protect mode can result from speaker wires touching each other or the Amps2_bing.gif metal case. Check that first.
It can also be caused by unstable ohm loads if too many speakers2_bing.gif are connected to any of the outputs especially zone 2.
If you can remove all speaker wires and turn the unit back on. If it stays on, turn the volume down on the main zone and zone 2 if connected. Then reconnect speaker wires.

No sound coming out of speakers something is wrong with the receiver


check if it goes to protection mode on power on. see to it that speaker selector switch is set.

Is your speakers connected properly?

Is your music source ok?

Do you hear a click after you switch on the power? the click indicates that the time-on delay transfers the amps output to the speakers which prevents thumps going out to the speakers.

Once it goes to protection mode you need to have it serviced. This is due to a fault in one of the amps and that it protect the speakers from further damage.

Possible burnt out power supply on Yamaha RX-V557


Can you check the power transformer, voltage & resistance.
You may have to unsolder some components to test them...such as the rectifying diodes and the transformer.  I believe that the outputs from the power supply board are all DC voltages.  Is there all so a IC chip on the power supply board?  Does your insurance cover lightening damage?
