Question about Yamaha HTR-5440 Receiver

1 Answer

Audio won't play on DVD - but it will play for CDs

We have the Yamaha HTR-5440 attached to a 6 disc Sony CD/DVD player (DVP-NC600). All of a sudden, the audio stopped playing on DVDs - but CDs still work (so we assume it's not the CD/DVD player).

We're assuming the settings for the receiver somehow got changed - but we don't know how to fix it.

Please help!! Thanks!

    We ended up taking the DVD/CD player and the receiver back to Best Buy, where we bought them. The tech in Home Theater duplicated the problem, but couldn't figure it out. He went to get a Geek Squad member. As soon as the Home Theater tech tried it again in the Geek Squad member's presence, everything worked! The geeks shall inherit the earth, I guess!

    We took eveything home and hooked it up. We watched the first DVD in weeks - 'Cloverfield,' very entertaining, by the way - and everything worked like brand-new!

    Electronics surely can be weird sometimes!

    Thanks for your help, barneyluc!

Hello, you can verify that your receiver is working or not. When you are playing a dvd unplug the audio RCA plugs (red and white) from the back of the Sony dvd player. Touch the tips of each of the RCA plugs with your fingertip. You will hear a buzz sound coming from the speaker associated with the plug if the receiver is working\ i.e. touch the red RCA plug tip and the right speaker will hum...touch the white tip and the left speaker will hum or buzz. This will not hurt your system or speaker. If you do not hear the hum turn the volume to 3 or so and wet your fingertip and tap the tip of the RCA connectors. You will hear "pops" coming from the respected channel. I believe your cd\dvd is at fault. Good Luck!

Remember to test any/all new hookups or connections using minimum settings (volume, etc.), and bring up levels slowly for the initial testing.

You said "...on reciever cd out in the audio box..." but it should the reciever IN that you connect to. Also is the BlueRay player capable of playing CD's ? When you press play on the sony remote, do the seconds start counting on the screen ? (ie: is it playing, but no sound is coming out?)

Try any older Sony DVD player code like the DVP-CX995. Sony has had the same basic codes for years. You will be missing blue, green, yellow, and red buttons since they are not available on the remote.
For a true one button solution check out the MX-900.

Microphone for my YAMAHA HTR-5440


Let me make this clear to you that your Yamaha does not support Microphone but the trick is you can still do it. All you need is a stereo jack to a RCA connector cable.Check this out http://www.mediacollege.com/audio/connection/jack-stereo-rca-2.html It is easily available in the market. The stereo jack will fit into your microphone and the RCA to your Amplifier/Reciever. Plug the RCA into CD/Tape input but not in the Phono n do your thing. Let me know if this works,coz I'm really curious.
