Question about Yamaha RX-V2200 Receiver

Yamaha rx-v2200 sound problem

I bought this av receiver in 2001. It is hooked up to a Yamaha NS-P420 speaker system, and also has a center channel speaker. Since day 1, I have only run this system in the 6 channel surround sound mode. I've only run the subwoofer on various occasions over the last 7 years. Maybe 10 times at the most. Over the past few weeks the receiver was making crackling and popping sounds and losing sound. My husband took the cover off and blew out the dirt with a compressor. That worked for like a day. Now, I will be watching tv and all of a sudden the sound will go out. I have figured out that if I change the presets on the amp to say Rock concert, or church, or any of the other 8 or so presets, the sound will work only on the left and right front channels. When I put the preset to either entertainment game or entertainment 6 channel, there is no sound, but there is sound on entertainment disco in the front right and left speakers like all the other presets. If I leave the receiver in the 6 channel surround while the sound is out, I will get an extremely loud swooshing sound (which will probably at some point fry my right and left front speakers and give me a heart attack) and then the sound will come back on all 6 channels. This happens no matter which piece of equipment i'm using. The receiver is hooked up to the tv, a dvr, dvd player, and 2 vcr's. Always has been. If you have any thoughts, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

    Hi Jason,

    The problem has not been taken care of. I went out and purchased an RX-V2400 and put the 2200 away in its original box. Will you be sending it back to the repair shop? I would think that they should warranty their repair that didn't work. Do you know what they repaired the first time? If you do resolve the issue, I would be interested in finding out what they did to finally fix the problem. I'm sorry I couldn't be of help to you. Thanks, Zanthena

    Hey Jason, Did they fix the 2200 again? Did you find out what they actually fixed? My 2400 started acting up this summer. We had a week long heat wave and for a few days during the hottest part, every time I turned the 2400 on it would instantly click off or it would go click click click until I pulled the plug. I know it is a protection fault. But after the sun went down and the house cooled a little bit, I would plug it back in and it seemed to run fine. So this happened for like 4 days. Now it is not as hot as it was, it's been about a month, and it has not done it since. WEIRD. So, I don't check this forum often, but if you write back I'd would definitely appreciate it. Hope you're having a great summer. Take care. Thanks, Zanthena

    Wow that was a quick response. I hope the repair shop refunded your money since they never really fixed it. I saw the 2065. To new for me. Everything I own is analog. I've got 10 Verizon Fios digital converters. I use them with 2 vcr's and 4 dvr's and 5 tv's. One tv alone has 6 converters. That is the tv that the receiver is hooked up to. It works for what I need. Maybe someday I'll move up to HDMI, but I'm not there yet.
    So, my husband saw a 2400 listed on eBay as a returned unit, not working, for repair or parts. He is a mister fix it and he really wanted to open one up to take a look inside. So we won the auction. It cost $41.50 including shipping. We get the receiver, I get a pair of headphones, and he plugs it in. I don't hear anything. So I find some paperwork on how to reset the receiver. I do the reset procedure and put the headphones back in and now I hear static because the radio isn't picking up a signal. I get an antenna, hook it up, and now I'm listening to FM radio. We clean the unit up, pull out our other 2400 and hook the new one up and it is working perfectly. But, while we were waiting for the "broken receiver", we won a working 2200 on eBay for $150 shipped. So we pulled out the 2400 that was running fine for a week, and now we hooked up the 2200. So far, so good. Now all we have to do is make up our minds on which one were going to settle on. My husband thinks we should put back our original 2400 that was doing the click click click thing last month and see if it returns. Don't know how long that will be, but it will be interesting finding out. As long as we have the backups I think were set for awhile. Maybe someday my husband will open up our original 2200 that had the same problem as yours. That may be a long time away. Thanks for getting back to me. I hope your new 2065 works well and gives you many years of enjoyment. Take care. Zanthena

Hi Zanthena - my Yamaha rx v 2200 is doing exactly the same thing - did you manage to track the problem down? I have had my unit in for repair and the fault occurred again 6 hours after I re-installed it.

Any help would really be appreciated!

Jason.

    Hi Zanthena - thanks for the reply - it is back in the shop for repair!!! I will probably end up doing the same as you did and go out and purchase a new one!



    I will let you know what happens with it.



    Thanks



    Jason.

    Hi Zanthena - the repair shop couldn't find the problem and I ended up telling them to throw it out and I went and bought a new one - I got the 2065. I figured that it wasn't worth the effort to try and fix it! The first time the repair shop told me that the fault was due to a faulty ribbon cable which I was dubious about as the problem was intermittent and seemed to change in accordance with temperature increases. Then I was advised that the control circuitry needed to be replaced in full and it was likely to cost around half of what I originally paid for the receiver!!! Hope you can sort your latest problem out! Thanks Jason.

You should have preamp output jacks on the back of the receiver. Hook that up to your external amp input.

Check the settings on receiver in the SETUP menu / HDMI / Audio. Here you can choose Amp (sound goes from the speakers connected to receiver), TV (receiver is muted and sound is routed via HDMI to TV) and Amp+TV (sound goes from speakers and also to TV).
Also check in OPTION menu / Signal Info that receiver is receiving sound in recognized format.

With what signal did you try? Maybe your signal source (DVD/TV or radio) didn't contain any sounds for the center channel.
Go to the Setup menu, Speaker setup / Manual setup and find there item called "Test tone". It will output a test tone to each speaker individually (you will see on LCD which speaker is being tested at each moment). If you will hear a sound from the center now, there is no issue and center is working fine, just your source didn't contain any sound for the center.

If it doesn't work, then either you have faulty cable, faulty speaker or faulty center output of the receiver.
- Try connecting the center speaker to different output of receiver (this will test if speaker is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker to left output with CENTER cable (this will test if cable is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker with working cable to the CENTER output (this will test the output of receiver if OK - but use the Test Tone from Setup).

RX-V596 center and rear channels do not have any sound


Nevermind... My center channel output was set to "NONE" I've had this receiver for a few years now, probably set it that way back when I got it. Oh well, Helps to re-read the user manual...

The info is in the "SET MENU" section of the manual, Pages 35-38. Should solve the issue for "almccrum" above as well.
