    I have been having a similar issue recently. My RX-V1 occasional would drop out a channel. At first it was the center channel, then it worked for a few months and the left channel dropped for a while. More recently the left stopped working almost 100% of the time and sometimes the right channel stops.

    Very rarely these channels would start working again on their own the next time I turned on the receiver. Sometimes I could get them to work again by unplugging and reconnecting my subwoofer to the receiver. It seems to make no sense that this would work, but I read this tip a couple of years ago when the problem first appeared. It doesn't seem to work anymore though.

Yes, there are relay type switches associated with those outputs. Your RX-V1 is not dying.
Just plug a pin plug in and out of the dead channel to bump the switch. You will hear the speaker
come on. If it doesn't come on,do the plug jack in an out of the pre out again. It will come on.
You can use the test tone to check all channels and rebalance volume levels. You are making the
pre out connect to its power amp. It seems the problem got better when activating those switches. Most likely a cleaning issue. You can also jump the mains and center, and there is also
a modification to jump all channels. I bought my RX-V1 very cheap because of this and love it.
Of course outboard power amp would solve all, but getting this reciever to connect to it's own
power amp has been thrilling as far as bang for the buck. I do use the front effects also, and like
them. It may seem like a pain, but it is worth it to get those channels going.

You can try all these temporary solutions but it is a real pain to lose you audio in the middle of a great movie.
I just fixed by RXV1 which was losing Center, Left and Right Surrounds. Mains never had a problem and Sub never had a problem.
Go to yamaha24x7(dot)com and buy 2 pcs of V806700 (black RCA connectors in PreAmp connctor bank); 4 pcs of V454850 (red/white RCA connectors in PreAmp connector bank).
Move the RXV1 to a sturdy work table (very very heavy!!). -Remove 4 screws from left chassis panel. Lift panel up and pull away from chassis to remove. -Remove right chassis panel the same way. -Remove top cover by unscrewing two top screws and two screws in top-rear corners. -Lift cover off and set aside. -Remove bottom panel by resting the RXV1 on right side and unscrew 12 screws holding in bottom plate. -While the chassis is tipped up, remove the black screw in near the middle support bar. This screw is found on the green circuit board near the support bar and is securing the audio board which you need to remove from the chassis. - Set the RXV1 back down such that all cards are up and visible. - There a a long string of black philip head screws between the PreAmp output connectors in the back (between the red and while RCAs). Remove all of them to be able to take out the audio card. - At this point, you will need to attach a ground strap from your wrist to the chassis to control static discharge and ruining your electronics. - The audio card is made up of two cards connected together. At the junction between the larger card connected to the main board, and the small card with all the connectors, gently separate the two cards by pulling the large card away from the small card. - remove the small wire connector at the top of the small card with all the connectors. -remove the large card from the main board by gently lifting from back to front (two inserting connectors in main board holding card). -I DID NOT remove the ribbon connector from the short connector card. I just place a board across the RXV1 chassis and did my unsoldering and soldering on this board. -I used a solder wick to remove the solder from lowest two (red/white) connectors, the next two black/black connectors, skip the connect with Black body (only one in this line), remove last two red/white connectors. - each connector is held in by 6 metal solder points plus 2 plastic holding tabs through the audio board. - Wick out all the solder from the 6 solder holes, and use a small flush cutting diagonal wire cutter and razor blade to cut off the plastic holders flush with the circuit board holes. - once loose, pull firmly to remove completely. Set this component aside and do not mix in with new components. - remove all of the lower RCA connectors except the 5th from the bottom. The solder pins on this is also different. - when reinserting the new RCAs, work from the one left up and down toward the outsides. This will make insertion easier. - Use a PC grade solder with resin and solder all the pins to the audio card. If pin is not visible, remove connector and straighten the pin to feed through the hole. - reinstall and reconnect the boards, - screw in card holding screw. -reassemble chassis.
Done.
Good luck.

    This is the method Yamaha service does or tells you to do. The problem comes from the vendor Yamaha used for these RCA connectors. The internal spring pressure is too low and cleaning them wont be a permenant fix.

  • Dan B Jan 09, 2013

    The problem was with the original vendor of the parts. The problem was solved in Yamaha with new parts. My system is still working great and problem has been permanently solved.

  • Dan B Jan 09, 2013

    My solution post is very difficult to read. This is from the format FixYa uses in paragraphs. My advice would be to buy the parts then read my post and everything will make sense.

My unit does the same thing, I read online to install a RCA Patch cord from Main-In to Main Out and it worked.
I contacted Yamaha and they wanted to charge me to fix the issue and they will not fix it under warranty because I did not buy the unit from a authorized Yamaha dealer. Obviously a design flaw.

Yamaha rx-v2500 receiver how to hook up speakers


HI,

Follow these steps to connect a powered sub woofer to your receiver: You typically have two options when connecting a powered sub woofer. Input (1) on the rear of the sub woofer would be used when connecting the sub woofer to the receiver using speaker wires. You would then connect the main speakers to the opposite end, or output or the sub woofer to the main speakers. Option (2) would be using RCA line level output jacks, input (2) on the rear panel of the sub woofer directly to the single sub woofer output on the back of an AV receiver. blank.gif

How to set up a seven-speaker home theater system


Set up a home theater

How to connect your speakers

In order to deliver surround sound, home theater systems require 5, 6, or even 7 speakers--and that's not even counting the subwoofer. Connecting all those speakers together can be quite a challenge, so here's a quick overview of the basics.

If you don't have an all-in-one, home-theater-in-a-box system, you'll probably need to supply your own speaker cables. There are several different types available--they vary in terms of wire size (or gauges) and termination types. Make sure you pick cable that's a good match for your speakers and receiver. And make sure they're long enough; the rear-channel cables in particular will be stretching all the way around the room.

Once you've selected your system and have all your speakers ready to set up, begin by placing each speaker at or near its intended location. Then, attach the cables to them one by one. After securely fastening one end of the cable to the speaker, connect the other end to the appropriate speaker output on the back of the A/V receiver. Be sure to connect the cable to the correctly labeled output.

For instance, the front-right speaker wire needs to go to the terminal labeled front-right. Also, make sure that each speaker connection is in phase, meaning negative to negative and positive to positive. Otherwise, your system's sound will sound out of whack. Repeat the process for every speaker in your system. Note that the subwoofer uses a coaxial-style RCA cable instead of standard speaker wire.

Once all the wires are connected, you should test the system with several DVDs and CDs, to ensure that everything is in working order.

For our first example, we used an elaborate 7.1-channel system, so it may have 1, 2, or several more speakers than your system. Some systems even employ wireless rear speakers, or virtual surround-surround modes that simulate multichannel experience from 3, 2, or even 1 speaker. And some listeners still prefer good old stereo sound from 2 speakers. No matter what type of speaker setup you prefer, however, the wiring basics remain the same.

How to position surround-sound speakers and a subwoofer
To get the best performance from a surround-sound speaker system, you must install each speaker in the correct location. There are three basic types of surround-sound speaker systems.

  • The 5.1-channel system has five satellite speakers and a subwoofer.

  • 6.1-channel systems have six satellites and a subwoofer.

  • And 7.1-channel systems have seven satellites and a subwoofer.

Start by placing the center speaker either directly above or directly below your TV. The center speaker can be perched atop a direct-view TV or mounted on the wall. Aim the center speaker at ear level.

In most cases, the front-left and front-right speakers can be wall mounted or placed on stands. However, if your speakers have rear-panel bass ports, they should not be wall mounted. Space your front-left and front-right speakers the same distance apart as the distance between your center speaker and your listening position. Position the front-left and front-right speakers no more than two feet above or below the front-center speaker. The tweeters in the front-left and front-right speakers should be roughly at ear level relative to your seating position.

Ideally, the surround-left and surround-right speakers should be mounted on the side walls of your room, slightly behind or parallel to your listening position. If your speakers have rear-panel bass ports, place them on stands instead. If installing the speakers on the side walls isn't practical, you can mount them on the room's rear wall or place them on stands behind your listening position. The surround speakers can be installed up to two feet above the front speakers.

Also, 6.1 surround systems have a back-center speaker. You'll typically mount this on the rear wall of your room, centered behind your seating position. Position the back-center speaker no more than six feet behind the surround-left and surround-right speakers. If your speaker has a rear-panel bass port or if the rear wall is too far behind your seating position, place the back center speaker on a stand instead. The back-center speaker should be installed at the same height as the surround-left and surround-right speakers.

Instead of a single back speaker, 7.1 surround systems use a back-left and a back-right speaker. These, too, are typically mounted on the rear wall of your room. Position the back-left and back-right speakers so that each is approximately aligned with the left and right edges of your listening position. Place the back-left and back-right speakers no more than six feet behind the surround-left and surround-right speakers. If your speakers have rear-panel bass ports,or if the rear wall is too far behind your seating position, place the speakers on stands instead. Install the back-left and back-right speakers at the same height as the surround-left and surround-right speakers.

A subwoofer is the last component of a 5, 6, or 7.1 system. Because bass frequencies are nondirectional, you can place the subwoofer in various locations. You may get the best performance by installing the subwoofer in the front of the room, approximately six inches from the wall. If you want more bass, try placing the sub near a corner in the front of the room.

Connect your DVD player to your A/V receiver--digitally
To hear a movie's soundtrack in surround sound, you must first connect your DVD player to an A/V surround-sound receiver. You'll need to make what is called a multi-channel-compatible connection.

The easiest way to do this is to use a cable that carries a digital signal. There are two digital options: optical and coaxial.

An optical digital connection, also called TosLink, uses pulses of light to deliver a digital signal. According to some experts, one advantage of optical digital connections is that optical cables don't pick up noise, while lower-quality coaxial cables can. Many, but not all, DVD players have an optical output. Most A/V receivers have at least one and usually multiple optical inputs. Plug one end of the optical cable into the DVDs player's optical-out jack. Plug the other end into the receiver's optical input.

Finally, you need to tell your receiver to use the optical connection whenever you switch to the DVD input. This is called assigning the input. Information about this simple process can be found in your A/V receiver's manual.

A second option is a coaxial digital connection. This type of connection is also used for cable TV, but the connectors are different. This type of coaxial cable has an RCA connector. Coaxial cables are less expensive than optical ones. In fact, you can use any old RCA cable to make a coaxial digital connection, and you won't lose any audio quality.

Most, but not all, DVD players, have a coaxial output. Some have coaxial and optical outputs, so you get a choice. Audiophiles argue over which connection is better, but it's very hard to hear the difference. Most A/V receivers have at least one and usually multiple coaxial inputs. Plug one end of the coaxial cable into the DVD player's coaxial-out jack. Plug the other end into the receiver's coaxial input.

Finally, tell your receiver to use the coaxial connection whenever you switch to the DVD input. Again, your A/V receiver's manual will have instructions for assigning an input.

yes, there is an amp turn-on wire from the head unit (black with a red stripe). You will need to add a power wire and fuse from the fuse box to run the amp. You can use the speaker outputs as inputs to the amp, depending on what you are trying to do. Please let me know if you need more help, and identify the amp model as well as the speakers you will connect.

When I hook up the rear speakers to my in-wall speakers, I can't get any sound. I have speaker button 1 and 2 selected.


Hi:
you need to clear that you connect wall speakers for font,center or rear (surround) speakers?
Seem you connect for Front speaker.
Rear (surround) speaker will have "rear" mark on the back of your reveiver.
In general you need to select both buttons 1 & 2 then check your speaker wires connect into "output1" or "output 2" hint: each output will have 1 for left and 1 for right speaker. Each Left or right speaker will have 2 connection 1 red color (+) and 1 white color (-). Try to match these colors code for your speakers connection.

Yamaha RX-V365 Receiver when I hook up my center channel it is not audible at all. The R and L speakers work fine when they were located in the FRONT A and FRONT B terminals, but when I moved everything to...


With what signal did you try? Maybe your signal source (DVD/TV or radio) didn't contain any sounds for the center channel.
Go to the Setup menu, Speaker setup / Manual setup and find there item called "Test tone". It will output a test tone to each speaker individually (you will see on LCD which speaker is being tested at each moment). If you will hear a sound from the center now, there is no issue and center is working fine, just your source didn't contain any sound for the center.

If it doesn't work, then either you have faulty cable, faulty speaker or faulty center output of the receiver.
- Try connecting the center speaker to different output of receiver (this will test if speaker is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker to left output with CENTER cable (this will test if cable is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker with working cable to the CENTER output (this will test the output of receiver if OK - but use the Test Tone from Setup).
