Re: Yahama RX-V590

Sorry to have to tell you but that means there is a short in the output circuit or the power supply. I would bet that one or more of the output componets are bad. If you know solid state circuit troubleshooting, It still may be worth repairing. if you do not then most likly it is time to get a new unit.

Can I hook up an ipod to a Yahama RX-V590 receeiver?


Yes you can. You need to buy an auxillary cable for your iPod that converts the 3.5mm jack to regular RCA audio jacks. Then connect the RCA audio jacks to the jack of your RXV590.

I hope this helps. Thanks and have a nice day.

When my volume is set above a certain level it shorts and it isn't set high at all.  It is a yamaha rx-v590 receiver, any idea of the issue?

A speaker wire or a speaker may be shorted.

If the positive wire is touching the ground wire anywhere in your system, this will occur.

Run the speaker "test" to hear all speakers. If one does not sound off, that is probably your shorted wire our bad speaker. Check for a bad splice, back of receiver speaker output, speaker input, or wire shorted on tack strip under carpet,etc.

If this does not help, you may have a shorted speaker channel in the receiver itself.

This goes for most all receivers that are not vintage in age.

Enters standby after being on for only a few seconds.

Sounds like either the volume is turned up too loud, or you have a short. Have you tried disconnecting all the speaker leads from the rear, and then powering it on? Usually if it turns on for a short time and then shuts off, it is throwing itself into protection mode.

My yahama rx-463 does not reconize the sub-woofer. any help?

Typically a/v recievers have on/off settings for each sound mode. This is likely the cause.

Yamaha rx-v461 not working

you have a faulty circuit somewhere, whether its in speaker wiring, or power source, i dont know, but your reciever has an automatic circuit breaker in it for protection, and a faulty circuit will trip it, i would assume it is a power source problem since it wont turn back on, check wiring, plugs and look around, and smell for burnt, or hot components.

I just purchased a yahama rx- v850 av reciever

if you dont mind a lettle customization, just go to radioshack and set your favorite color l.e.d. and wire it in, if you can find a specs diagram for your reciever, you might look up voltage and wattage of the bulb so you can get appropriate resistors for the led, and install that. itll last forever, cost virtually nothing, and its easy to do.
