Question about Yamaha RX-V995 Receiver
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.
