RX-V995 Won't Start - Found Possible Fix But Need Parts

I have the same problem as others - a 9 year old RX-V995 receiver that would not stay on, and now will not turn on at all. The problem started about a year ago, and my fix then was to leave the unit powered up all the time. If I turned the unit on and off, there were times where it would not turn on. Over the weekend the unit shut off and I could not power it back on. I could hear the main relay drop out in a second. I found that if I pushed on the relay a certain way the unit would power up. That suggested a bad solder joint on the relay. I re-worked the 4 solder joints, but no fix - the unit would not start unless I pressed on the relay again. I now suspect a bad relay (DEC DG1U-12V) - do you agree? If not what else could it be? Where can I get a new relay - and where can I get the Yamaha part number? I have the same problem. How do I know where the relay is and what it looks like?

Many different Yamaha amplifiers have a faulty capacitor on the Standby power PCB. I would replace the capacitor on that board first. My RX-V2500 had the same symptoms and I changed the 22nF 630V (orange) capacitor and now it's fixed.

Start by checking the fuse, take the cover off the reciever and look for a small glass fuse attached to the board. If it's blown replace it.

    If this doesn't help then you will have to replace it with a new realay.

  • Priya darshan Sep 06, 2008

    Please click on the below link.Just contact them and tell them that you need a replacement relay for your model and they will ship it to you.

  • Priya darshan Sep 06, 2008

    If they ask you for the part no. you can tell them:

    RELAY DC DG12D1-0/M11 RXV2095 (V6881300).

    But it is better to just give them the model no. of your reciever and tell them you need a replacement relay for your model.

  • Priya darshan Sep 06, 2008

    The part no. which i gave you is actually for RXV2095.But your mode no. is RXV995

    So please just tell them to give a replacement relay for your model no.

if you havent already, get in contact with service centre -- see if they have a recall for this product .. it should have come with 2 year parts/labour warranty

Yamaha RX-V995: Is there anyway to only listen to

Assuming you have the same Model Variant ( I'm not sure if Yamaha varies model from Country to Country) I just switch mine to effect off ( 2 Channel) to remove the surround component so that only A or B speaker pairs work.That should fix it unless I am mistaken.

Yamaha RX-V995 receiver turns on & then powers off 2 seconds late

I suggest you run self diag.  press [FM/AM] key + [Input mode] key and press the [power/standby] switch.

ps prt = power supply problem
dc prt = shorted output or leakly cap in channel
tmp prt means to hot on heatsink

you'll likely have to measure the resistances of the output FETs to find a short,

Yamaha RX-V995: Remove On Screen Text

Here is a dumb try :). Connect your video source directly to the TV/projector, bypassing the receiver from inserting any messages.

If you are probably going to HD sometime, you would need to do that eventually as 995 doesn't have HDMI/Digital Video switching.

Sorry no - I think you might have to buy a copy somewhere like Vance Baldwin or the other authorized Yamaha replacement part vendor.
