Generally, an indication of "speaker error" means that something hashappened to an internal circuit of the unit. This can be caused byover-heat or over-current conditions which sometimes are due to runningthe volume high. If your problem occurred during a very loud passage ofaudio on the TV, this may be the cause of the problem. If so, it willnot matter which input you feed the TV sound into. In fact, the sameproblem might occur running the DVD player. The shut down condition inthe Yamaha is a protective circuit that keeps the unit from beingdamaged.
Now--it may well be that you were not running high volume at all andthe same problem could occur due to heat build up in the amplifier orto a circuit problem. If the system is in a warm area of your home,this may raise the internal temperature of the sub high enough totrigger the shut down. I do notthink that an external source is the reason for the problem--unless, ofcourse, the input signal level is too high and causes the volume to gohigh.
If you have the unit closed up in a shelf whith limited ventilation orthe sub is located where it has no cooling air, that could also be acause for the problem. You may want to try changing locations of theunit and see what happens. If you still have the problem, I recommendthat you go up on the Yamaha web site (www.yamaha.com) and click ontheir customer service area. Then ask about the problem and see whatthey recommend.

Pretty common with that model. All you can do is try unplugging it for 10 minutes or so and try it again. If still bad, disconnect everything hooked to it and see if it stays on. If it does, hook up one item at a time to see if a speaker or something is causing the shutdown. If it doesn't stay on with nothing hooked to it, it has internal (possibly capacitors) that are bad.
Look for a button on the unit or remote for turning speakers on end off, Or when you go into the unit menu, Watch with the functions if it stays something about the speakers, Turnig them on or off, If you don,t come across any of this stuff, Get a manual for it, End see if you can find any thing about it in the manual, In the trouble shooting (Section) If you don,t have a manual for it, Try manuals online.com
You can get your unit repaired. (cheapest option) You can hook up the speakers to another unit as long as it will work with the same impedance speakers. Don't hook them up to a receiver that is rated for 8 ohms. Your speakers are 3 ohm. The sub is a passive one, so the replacement receiver will have to work with a passive woofer.
This error means that the unit is in "protect" mode. An error condition was detected in the final stage of the amp and the unit has shutdown to prevent further damage. This is usually the output amp pac that needs to be replaced. Expect a parts replacement cost in the $75-$90 range.
I fixed the main problem. It has inputs, not labeled as such. one set right next to all the outputs labeled only aux.after plugging in to the TV outputs, and putting the unit on AUX, this was fixed. The surround speakers were harder to work out, After downloading the manual, I was able to get sound out of them, however at a lower level than all the others. Even following the speaker level adjustments in the manual, cant get more volume out of them...I'll keep trying.
I was moving around my large woofer speaker last night and then all of a sudden the unit went into protection mode. I tried all the various solutions posted on here and nothing worked. Then I went back to my speaker connections on the woofer and unplugged them and plugged them in again and it seems to be ok now. Very annoying problem. Can I suggest unplugging all the speaker cables and replugging them back in. Also another solution may have been holding down the power button when powering up the unit. Give all the above a try.
try hooking up other speakers to receiver, and other receiver to speakers, in order to determine which is the problem causer.
open up receiver and check the contacts of the speaker swiches. also check the speaker relays, many times problem lyes there.
