After boot up, My receiver defaults to "Decoder"

When I boot up my receiver it defaults to "Decoder" and when I change it to any other input, the receiver changes back to "Decoder" After a while, and this time is getting longer, it allows the input to change. I took it to the store where I purchased it and they told me it was to expensive to fix. I'm still not convinced that they even know what the problem was. Does anyone know what the problem is? The other question is, can it be fixed for a resonable price?

Re: After boot up, My receiver defaults to "Decoder"

Maybe the input select IC is going, but I'd put my money on a bet that it is the main microprocessor going crazy. Get a real repair guy to look at it. It sounds like an expensive repair is in your future. If luck is in your stars then you may just have a power supply voltage that is taking a long time to get up to proper value for what ever reason and fixing that might fix your problem. Either way a trip to the shop is in order. Good luck.

I cannot figure out how to get sound through my Yamaha RX-V361 from my LG 37CS56 hdtv

Are you using any kind of Decoder or Set Top box to receive your TV signal?
If so you can connect the RCA OUTPUT from your cable or satellite decoder, to the Yamaha inputs. See the picture I have attached for you.
Then when you want to hear the sound from there, select DTV /CBL input on your remote control of the Yamaha receiver.

Or you can locate the SOUND or AV OUTPUT (Red and white RCA connection) at the back of you TV, and connect the cables from there to your Yamaha receiver.9_9_2012_6_50_32_pm.jpg

Receiver has an Ext. Decoder message on the face and is stuck on aux, won't respond to manual knob or remote control.

With no model number to go by I'll guess.

DE-select the External Decoder that you probably don't have attached to the 5.1 or 6.1 analog inputs. Crack the manual and find the control for it.

In the display it shows(decoder off) and not able to play music ,how to turn on the decoder?

I sense two different problems or one not completely described.

The followinbg would address the decoder issue.

It partially depends on what it is you're trying to play or how you like to hear it.

Check the Direct Mode Button and make sure it's not activated. (M on page 4).

Straight Mode (L on page 4) is a desirable starting point for multichannel material.

See page 24 of the manual to see all the things this beastie can do with all of the audio inputs.

Be advised that most commercial multichannel sound sources have been pre-mixed by the originators to provide an intended 'feel' and 'space', so modifying it might not be an improvement although it can provide a novel change. Like any spice, a little is best.

I find that processing 2-channel audio through the various DSP modes can make for some interesting and arguably pleasing effects.

If you 'search' the document for the word "decoder" it may lead you to a setting that's out of place.

"Not able to play music" should only happen if you have a source incorrectly chosen or the source is DTS and the decoder is off. Undecoded DTS will sound like high-level digital 'hash' noise because you're hearing the raw 'data' so it must be decoded to turn it into audio.

See the note on Page 2 regarding DTS-CD's then look at Page 33

I hope this was helpful.

1) Check to see if the screen says "EXT DECODER". If it does, press the EXT DECODER button again and this should fix the problem
2) Press input mode button until the display reads auto or digital. It may be set to analog.

How to play dts/dolby digital on HK AVR5

I believe he avr-5 has 6 channel inputs, what you will need is a dolby digital 5.1 and DTS outboard surround sound processor, say an item as the Technics SH-AC500 decoder, a Harman Kardon Signature 2.1 DTS version outboard processor/preamp, and many others on the market by different manufactors, Run the discrete audio outputs from the Processor into the AVR 5`s 6 channel inputs, select 6 channel input or DVD inputs on the receivers selector and your good to go. Be sure you are playing Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS encoded material.

Input selector on my Yamaha RX-V596 stuck

Hi Dush

Sounds like the processor has locked up in the unit. Try powering it right down from the wall socket for a day to reset, and then retry operation. If that does not work, leave it disconnected for about 10 days to erase backup memory completely and then try again. Good luck. Don't forget to give me a "FixYa" rating if this works. If it doesn't, get back to me in here and we can talk more about it.
