Question about Yamaha RX-V361 Home Theater Receiver
Today, my one year old Yamaha rx-v361 decided to stop outputting sound through the left and right side speaker. I didn't change any of the settings and none of the wires are loose. I've troubleshooted every possible way. I've even done a factory reset, but to no avail! The only way I can get them to work is to select "Speaker A/B/Off" on the front panel and click on B speaker set. The sound does then come out of the left and right speaker on this setting, but it's not in Stereo. Anyone else had this problem or know of a soloution?

Modern home-theater components monitor themselves electronically for potentially dangerous malfunctions such as damaged internal parts. When a unit's microprocessor senses a problem, it will typically shut down so that no further damage -- or potentially dangerous disasters like fire! -- occurs. Your receiver is identifying something upon turn-on and shutting down as a result. My guess is that you're going to need service for your Yamaha. There's likely no fix that you're going to find. You need a professional service technician.

Make sure that you have the correct input signal selected.
Also, check if the sound is not muted.
If you have a multi-room speaker switch, make sure it is set correctly to main speakers.

Yes, there are relay type switches associated with those outputs. Your RX-V1 is not dying.
Just plug a pin plug in and out of the dead channel to bump the switch. You will hear the speaker
come on. If it doesn't come on,do the plug jack in an out of the pre out again. It will come on.
You can use the test tone to check all channels and rebalance volume levels. You are making the
pre out connect to its power amp. It seems the problem got better when activating those switches. Most likely a cleaning issue. You can also jump the mains and center, and there is also
a modification to jump all channels. I bought my RX-V1 very cheap because of this and love it.
Of course outboard power amp would solve all, but getting this reciever to connect to it's own
power amp has been thrilling as far as bang for the buck. I do use the front effects also, and like
them. It may seem like a pain, but it is worth it to get those channels going.

Disconnect the speakers and turn on. If your receiver is ok, it will not go into protection "check spkrs" Then connect speakers, one by one, each time make sure the receiver is off, then turn it on. When you find the speaker that's causing the problem it will go into protection. At this time, disconnect the speaker at the speaker, then turn on again, if it still goes into protection, you have a speaker wire problem. If it stays on, you have a problem with the speaker. If you have a multimeter and know how to read it, check the impedance and the resistance. Check the internal workings of the speaker, bad surround from dryrot or smoked crossovers, etc. look for the obvious first. Hope this helps
