Question about Yamaha RX-V496 Receiver

1 Answer

Distorted sound on all right channel inputs

I just hooked everything up after having it disconnected before moving. I thought the problem was initially the rca cables or the speaker wire. Tested that option with hooking my dvd player directly to my tv and it was not. Hooked my computer using rca inputs to the receiver, still same problem. I even went so far as to make sure it wasn't the cables and the speaker wire by hooking all up to another receiver. Everything was fine on it. The left channel is fine for all audio inputs but the right channel is distorted...kinda with a crackling sound. Sound is coming out but it is extremely annoying. Any suggestions? Thanks, Phillip

    Are either one of those fixes costly?

    Thanks,

Yep but if your not a tech you should take this easy repair to a pro. Your problem is an open emitter resitor and happens when the units over driven or a speaker is bad for a while while it was working. if your a tech then check all of the emmitter resistors. also it could be a bad output device. Good Luck

    depending on the cost of the output device or the resistor i would say the average cost i remeber to repair a channel in a stereo was about 80 to 125 bucks

Yamaha AX700 amp distorts R channel - sound suddenly louder from R LS and distorted or metallic. Swapped LS L to R to eliminate


1) Check speaker polarity carefully
2) Ensure that speakers are securely connected.
3) Check your Balance control
4) Check your inputs (change inputs L/R)
If that does not alter or fix the problem your right channel may have developed an internal fault. Repair or have it repaired.

There is a constant high pitch noise on the left input channel.


Sounds like you may have a defective unit. I would return it for exchange.

Trying to get my ps3, Emerson hd tv and coby DVD938 home theater all to work together


The DVD938 only has analog audio input (2.1 channel), thats why you have only a white (left channel) and red (right channel) audio connection from your ps3 to the home theatre. There is an option called PROLOGIC in the setup menu that will simulate 5.1 with the 2.1, it basically takes the 2.1 channels and splits it into all the speakers.

Akai am-u01 righthand channel sounds distorted/blown please can you tell me what components on the board to check/replace the left channels fine i have allready re-wited most of the board but cant single...


You can try swapping the speakers over to see if the fault goes to the other channel. Remove the speaker leads from the input on the right channel and put them into the left channel input after removing the leads from those terminals, and if the fault goes there as well, then the problem is in your right channel speaker

Sound from left channel is small and distorted.


The distortion might be caused by a resistor. The loss of volume could be the capacitors, but you could try injecting signals into the transistors to see if any has gone. They can cause the distortion and loss of signal. If you apply a soldering iron to any part it will heat up quicker, or you could also use a hairdryer for the whole thing. You can also get a freeze spray that cools things that have heat sensitive faults (available from electronic parts shops).

How to connect mixer an amp to laptop?


How is everything hooked up?

Mic to Mixer, and Mixer to Laptop? Or is your mic connected directly to your laptop?

To do this properly, you will need a secondary audio input device of some kind that accepts line level input. Microphone inputs are intended for low level signals, and are not going to accept the input form a mixer properly. (you can get it to work, but it will generally be distorted)

There are various USB or PCMCIA audio input card options that aren't too expensive. Once you have that, you would need to route your music and microphone through your mixer, and the output of the mixer to your audio input device.

Sound very distorted


This turntable has a preamp switch on it, which is probably on and what is causing the distortion. Take off the metal record platter by lifting up on the two holes gently. Turn the pre-amp switch to 'off' and then try it again. This is probably it...

Or you can plug it into an input that doesn't have a preamp and that should work.
