Question about Yamaha RX-V800 Receiver

4 Answers

Will only power-on after multiple atempts.

I have a Yamaha RX-V800 receiver now for a couple of years. Very good. It started with a problem of not powering itself on. Sometimes it will power-on but if you try to press any other button (s) it will shut itself down again and you have to try many times untill it powers-on again. Once succesfull, you have to let it work for quite some time to be able to start selecting the various functions on it. It has been to the shop many times but it always returns with the same problem. The nearest big town that might have a Yamaha authorized repair shop is at least 3000 miles away. What is the problem??? Thank you John Jezierski

    Have had this receiver for 5 yrs or so and now will not power on.

    In the past 6-8 hours it will power on and work for 10-30 minutes and then shut off.

    I checked the impedance switch and for loose speaker wires.

    I did add 2 new exterior speakers to the "B" speaker connection.

    Would not power up after many attempts did one time and performed ok then later blinks one time and overloads drops out completely dead like there is a shorted semiconductor possible in the protection circuit.

That problem is well known problem with a memory capacitor on the stand up board that is the control board. It is .47F 5.5 volt capacitor that resembles a button battery. The cap leaks all over this board the fluid is conductive and corrosive. So the cap must be removed and the board scrubed clean with contact cleaned and dried before replacing with new cap. the unit can run without this cap but if the power should be removed all customer settings will revert to the default. also check the copper ground screws for tieghtness.

John, i was with yamaha before and i experienced this kind of problem in some of their models including rxv800. this is grounding problem and modification has to be made. if Yamaha authorized center will not modify the grounding and just follow how it is then it will keep on coming back. i can not be specific though which boards needs grounding. it has to be well inspected and do the modifications. thourough check and observation needed.

Hello, I also had this problem with my RX-V800 and I sent it out to Tweeter and they found a memory cap that went bad. They replaced it for $14.00 along with a labor/service charge of $110.

Could be a broken or cold solder joint on the main board. I assume you have checked all speakers and wiring to look for shorts. Second it could possible be the protection circuit in the amplifier itself is malfunctioning. finally it could be a component on the circuit board that fails under load any of these conditions can cause an amplifier to go into protect mode. A good shop tech should be able to find the problem with the schematics. If you have had it in several times for the same problem you may want to try a different tech.

Yamaha RX-V800 shuts down when any control button is pressed


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.

Config Problems After Repair


Sounds like they centre has configured your speakers to "none". You need to hook it up to a tV or monitor and go through the menu to "speaker settings" and make sure you select either "sml" or "lrg" for the speaker type. Also ensure on the LFE settings that you select either "swoofr" or "both."

Yamaha RX-V800 Composite Video Signal Problem


Hey there fontdude, I will begin assuming you are running your a/v cable into your receiver and then out to the TV or Monitor. If this is the case, I suggest you run the video cable direct from DVD or VCR device to Tv/monitor. You can still run the audio through your receiver. The nature of your problem was probably related to video signal strength being weakened as it ran through your receiver. Good Luck! Let me know how it works for you.
