HTR-5790 shut off problem

After working trouble free for two years, it now shuts itself off after about 10 seconds. I've unplugged it as suggested by the manual, but no change. I've not changed any connections and have had no power surges or lightning that I know of.

WOW this worked.. Hold down the ABCDE and the preset tuning right arrow and then hit power.. It puts it into a diagnostic mode, but it stays on.. I just rerouted my video to not use the receiver  and the audio works perfectly now.

Re: HTR-5790 shut off problem

This problem appears to be remote related. When I removed all the batteries out of the remote control, I powered my 5790 back on. The unit stayed on for the rest of the night. My guess is, the remote is somehow emitting the signal to to go back to stand-by. This could possibly be due to the batteries getting weak. Or the remote could have some other problems.

My yamaha HTR 5240 comes on for like 2 seconds and then turns off

That proves the audio output stage is shorted on or two channels. It will need to be checked out to assess the situation.

Thye amp has been idle and unplugged for over a year. Main power is switched on, when hitting power on the remote the amp starts for about 2 seconds then shuts off

These have two issues that I always check. Check and see if your regulated voltages are all coming up . With thecover off go to the right side ,the side away from the power in cord, and check the coonector where you will see several different voltages listed. Make sure you are getting strong readings for the 12volt and 5 volt lines. Don't worry about the 3.3 volt line. I don't see that fail much. Other issue are capacitors in output circuit starting to fail. Vallues like 47uf are common. Larry's Electronics.

I turn it on and within seconds it shuts itself off. what is up with this? model number htr 5790. it has been working flawlessless until today. nothing touched or changed.

Shutting off before the safety relay clicks means there is a problem with one or more audio output channels. Time to see a service center. There is little that can be done without a tech...

Our HTR-5660 is about 5 years old. Recently it

I solved the problem by ensuring the Impedence selector was either all the way to the left or all the way to the right, as instructed in the manual.

Yamaha htr-5790 no sound

Was there any source playing through the amp when your kid turned on the system?mabye the cd or dvd.If so the speakers may be blowen,to find out put a finger each side of the dome on the bass driver and press gentley,if you hear a rough sound a little like sandpaper or if the cone is stuck you have blowen sprakers,if not let the amp stay off for a couple of hours it should reset.Ps system lock is in your amp menu at the end of the setup list,but this is to lock your settings.
A good habit to get into is to turn system to mimamum when not in use.
hope this helps.

Yes, you would need an iPod to RCA Cable that will connect to your iPod and to the RCA Auxilliary input of the Yamaha HTR-5790 7.1 Channels Receiver. Similar to a Cygnett Groove Transit - MP3 Phone to RCA Stereo Cable or an iPod to RCA Retractable Cable.

Good luck and kind regards.

Powers on for just 5 seconds then off

Took my Yamaha HTR 5790 to a repair shop for an estimate to repair. Cost me $50 for estimate to be applied to repair. It needed two circuit boards replaced at a cost of $390.00.


SOLUTION... they kept my $50 and I bought a new AV Receiver that WAS NOT a Yamaha.
