Question about Yamaha RX-V496 Receiver

2 Answers

My Yamaha rxv496 switches off after about 20 mins then switches on after about 10 mins.

My Yamaha rxv496 switches off after about 20 mins even without any speakers connected. It then switches on after about 10 mins. This goes on....I have used this for about 10 years now.

    Did that. Opened and checked for any visual problems with the power supply - none visible. However, it appears as though the power off & on may be caused by an overheat trip. It remains on longer when opened..... Used the service manual to check for any problem shown by selftest - none! When tripped, the temp of the insides seem okay - nothing looks what could be causing this auto trip and untrip?

Please check if the power supply board before the transformer with large capacitor, there is a transistor Q 808 check for gradual heating, once optimum heat obtained system shuts down!
Check all soldered contact from and out of this component on the circuit board

Sounds Like a power supply issue and u should always have speakers connected before u turn on maybe power supply is about done open case an check for any leakage on power supply unit or small cracks on it ...if so its pretty well done
Never good to power up without speakers connected can blow power outputs

    Mine had this issue and I have found that all four of the voltage regulators had bad solder joints. This is the small board that is mounted upside down on the large heat sink. There are 4 regulators mounted on this board, 2 x 12 volt 7812s , 1 x 5 volt 7805 and one -12 volt 7912.

Security light will not stop flashing even after 20 mins of run time, car will not start will not attempt to turn over

Since the parts are no longer avail for this car to fix this issue more than likely why not just bypass the security system altogether. Here is how you do that. Click HERE

Yamaha model HTR 6130 Hardly used , professionally installed , well ventilated has been working well . In the last couple times used after 10 / 20 mins. audio drops out both on T V and D V D mode...

Do you have the users manual? If not, google your model number and select I am not seeing error codes to help diagnose, do you see any error indication? Your users manual says to check speaker impedance for a mismatch to your amp and speakers. There may be a problem causing the unit to go into protect mode. Check all speakers and speaker wiring. Try removing all speakers and see if problem duplicates. Has a timer function been accidentally programmed? If you have a mute indication display, see if that is activating. Are you using HDMI functions, HDMI intermittencies can be prevalent on different makes and models. Try different inputs, does failure remain? If this doesn't help, more than likely you need professional repair. Is overheat protection showing? Does check spkr wires show on display? As a last resort, before service, do a system reset to factory values, pg 59 or 63 in manual.

I have a DC04 and when i switch it on it works for 10-15 mins thens stops working for about 20 mins then starts working again.

Your vacuum is overheating - that's why it cuts out. You need to check everywhere possible for blockages and also make sure the washable filter is clean and dry. If the machine has been run without the washable filter in place, then the exhaust filter will be clogged and will have to be changed too.
