This is most likely a problem with the receiver. When this type of thing starts to happen it is most often a problem on the DSP board of a receiver. Sometimes it can be fixed by reflowing the solder on the right IC's of that board, but sometimes it requires the replacement of one or more IC's. Many service centers will just try to replace the entire DSP board because troubleshooting the DSP board is a very difficult task and can take many hours of testing and checking parts resulting in a huge labor cost. Unless you are very good with soldering and electronic troubleshooting you should really just take it to a authorized service center near your home. I am sorry there is no quick fix for this. If there was, I would have surely told you. I have been repairing home theater receivers since they started making them and have never seen an easy fix for this type of problem.


Let me know if I can be of any further help to you. Just so you know, finding out what the problem is with your equipment is worthy of a FixYa! rating. The FixYa! rating is not just for getting your equipment fixed, if it were, not many experts here would ever receive a FixYa! because electronics can rarely be fixed by just pressing a button or something simple like that. And it would also require that the people asking these questions had all the right tools and equipment as well as the knowledge to identify parts and problems to help in the repair since we can not be in your home to see it for our self.

SOURCE: Bi-Amping my speakers with HTR-5850

You can at a minimum, bi-wire your speakers by wiring the speakers with the A and B speaker outputs. The A speaker outputs end up running the tweeters and the B will end up powering the woofers.

SOURCE: How do I connect pc to htr-5850

You will need an adapter cable available on ebay or at radio shack.

Should have a 1/8" mini male stereo plug on one side and a set (left and right) male RCA plugs on the other end.

Simply plug into the output of your sound card or motherboard (usually blue or green) into any available input (EXCEPT PHONO) on your receiver.

select that input and it should work

hope that helps

How is TV sound coming into your Yamaha? If it's from the TV analog audio then maybe the TV's audio output is muted.

If it's from the Cable Box maybe ITs audio is muted. I'd refer to the guide for the Cable Box.

MUTE on the receiver is not source-specific.

SOURCE: how do I hook my ipod to this yamaha device

Get a 1/8" miniplug-to-RCA-cable adapter and plug the headphone output directly into any compatible input on the receiver. Press PLAY.

Read the article (it's short). Don't buy into the hype about better cables. IPOD's don't stack up as hi-fi to begin with and cables are cables are cables....

Does the speaker setup fail the same way?

TV/DVD surround sound through receiver


Try running digital audio from the source - cable/sat - to the receiver. The fewer intervening connections and entities, the better. TV's are NOT considered sound sources for high end purposes or we wouldn't have Yamaha HTR-5860's and better speakers, would we?

Is it possible to play my ipod nano through my Receiver?


If it doesn't have a jack made for plugging Mp3 players into it like the new car stereo's do than you just have to go buy an FM transmitter that is made for Mp3 players. It will play through one of your low FM frequency's on your receiver. You can generally pick one up for around $20

Yamaha HTR-5990 Audio no longer works

Did you ever get this resolved?  I have a similar problem, my video feed seems to work but I have never been able to get any sound from my speakers using this component.  I'm not sure what YPAO setup is but I just read a suggestion to reset the receiver to factory settings in the event something is programmed that causes the problem.
