Yamaha RX-V470 LEDs/Lights all out

All of the lights, indicators, etc. have gone out on our receiver. It is now impossible to know which settings or programs I am on (borrowed the description from an identical problem on another forum). Otherwise, the receiver operates fine. Is there a common item that would cause all of the lights to stop working at the same time?

    Thank you for your reply solutiondoct.  I checked the receiver and manual for the dimmer, but no luck.

    Do you have an idea what part the A/V guy would order to fix this?

Sometimes,you might press a "film mode" or "Dim"or "dimmer which will turn OFF the front panel display.Check that first from your manual.
It happened a lot!
If that is not the case,then you need A/V repair guy to order the part to fix it for you.

Remote control not working right out of box. Lights on remote work so I know it is putting out a signal. Is there some sort of initial set up or should this be working right out of the box?

If it is brand new look at the owners manual and if that doesn't help call Yamaha for help with repairing and /or replacing your remote or receiver.

Display panel does not light; sound is ok

It may not need repair. if you have it hooked up to a TV, by video, s-video, or component. Press the menu button on the remote and you can see the main menu of the unit on the TV. Navigate the menu up/down/left/right/enter until you get to "display". You should be able to turn the display of the receiver on/off. If you don't have the manual. That's the PDF from Yamaha. I haven't used this particular unit, but that's the way it's done on all the other series. ie. RX-V or RX-Z. Hope this helps

The display light doesn't come on to indicate what the unit is doing (frequency, mode, etc.)

I assume that it plays, you just can't see the display. It may just need a new display bulb, that back lights the display.
