I just got my Yamaha RX-V800 receiver back from a repair for a standby power off problem. Now I cannot get the Center, Rear and Subwoofer speakers to work as well as many of the effect settings. Could the repair center have changed all these parameters or do I have a whole new set of problems to get fixed?
I am a novice at audio equipment and hooked it up 6 years ago right out of the box and everything worked great. Now I am going through the Yamaha manual trying to check and configure according to the troubleshooting guide and having a miserable time. Is the some type of "Yamaha RX-V800 for Dummies" guide book that does a better explanation of how to set up the receiver?
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."

Test an audio source like "DVD" connected to the "Direct" input with left,center,right,rear,andsub input. put the receiver in "Direct mode" if you get audio, the main DSP chip is bad, get an estimate first since it can only be verified by bench testing the unit. It's not a cheap repair 400-500 range. Most new Yamaha receiver's in the modest range run 500-800- new. Hope this helps
The RX-V800 switches the various video signal types separately. Since you are feeding S-Video to the TV the composite (yellow) input from your Wii is not going anywhere. If you cant get S-Video output from the Wii then I'd suggest a simple Composite to S-video adaptor plug ($5 say). It worked for me with a Game Cube. Cheers BJ
(I have the RX-V659). Because the Yamaha remote has TWO SEPARATE buttons - power ON and power OFF (standby). This problem can't be fixed. There's a code to choose power ON and another code for power OFF. But one button can't be two buttons. Bad engineering\ design by Yamaha in my opinion
