Question about Yamaha Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Yamaha RX 596 receiver and the Yamaha RAX7 VZ45350 remote controller that came with it. I can turn the receiver on using the remote, but not off. To turn it on I use the "standby/on" button. There is a "sleep" button, but no "off" button. What do I press to shut off the reviver using the remote?
Press the Standby/On button on the remote or on the receiver (right below the Yamaha logo) to stop the audio output and display. The RX-596 goes into a low power standby mode when not in use; this allows it to respond to the remote when you press the buttons. If you want the receiver's power use to go to zero, you need to unplug it from the outlet. (You could also use a switched surge protector and push the switch to off.)
See page 9 (page 11 in the PDF) in the manual for the details on the On/Standby switch. The manual is available here: http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000057561.pdf . The page is also available here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/197512/Yamaha-Rx-596.html?page=11#manual .
I hope this helps.

I suggest you run self diag. press [FM/AM] key + [Input mode] key and press the [power/standby] switch.
ps prt = power supply problem
dc prt = shorted output or leakly cap in channel
tmp prt means to hot on heatsink
you'll likely have to measure the resistances of the output FETs to find a short,

What if you DON'T use the remote? Does it shut down when just using it?
If SO, you have a bigger problem.
If NOT, it sounds like the remote is hosed - sending a code to shut off.
Do you have another remote of any brand that you could set to do something simple, like change volume? Don't train it from the original, though, or it would do the same thing.
