Yamaha RX-730 Receiver inputs not working

I have a Yamaha RX-730 Receiver. The power is working, but all but the ''Main In'' inputs are not working. I'm only using this receiver to play my turntable. If I plug it into the Main In input, I can hear the record, but I can't control the volume on it. If I plug the turntable into the Phono input, nothing comes out of it, even when it's grounded.

My turntable and speakers are in perfect working condition, so it has to be the inputs. Does anyone know if I have to replace them?

Thanks,
Allan

    I have the same problem. The main amplifier is working but the
    preamp section seems to be dead. Is there a fuse or something?
    Any suggestions?

I suggest you run self diag.  press [FM/AM] key + [Input mode] key and press the [power/standby] switch.

ps prt = power supply problem
dc prt = shorted output or leakly cap in channel

What you will need is a phono pre-amp, then you can run into the receiver with a line level input to an empty audio input on the receiver, you can try Radio Shack to obtain one.

SOURCE: zune and yamaha RX-V663 Receiver

Buy the Zune A/V kit and hook it up to a non used rca port on the back. Look for the older ones for the 30 gb units, they are much cheaper than the new ones and it takes 10 seconds to modify them to use on the newer units. The A/V kit has 3 rca plugs, one for sound and 2 for video. If you pick a source that can play video and sound on your receiver, then the screen on the zune will display on your television. The A/V kit has a remote with it also so you can control the zune from the room. I have not tried it, but since the Zune remote is IR then if you have a good all in one remote, such as a harmony, you may be able to program the codes from the Zune remote into it and even be able to control your stereo and Zune from one remote. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: technics turntable plays but no sound with Sherwood receiver

The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.

SOURCE: i want to connect a phono turntable to my RX V550.

No can do without an intervening phono preamp.

Check out eBay for one or, if you still have an older stereo receiver with a Phono input hanging around, use it to preamplify the TT and run an RCA pair from the Tape Out to any available stereo input on your Yamaha.

Yamaha rx-v663 how to set and lock sound program


once you set the audio program for an input, it should stay set even if you power the unit down. As far as locking that program so that it cannot be changed - no there isn't a way to do that.

Rx-v800, have a problem when i swtich the input mode, it will turn off. after leave it for few months, now no problem but not sound.


Test an audio source like "DVD" connected to the "Direct" input with left,center,right,rear,andsub input. put the receiver in "Direct mode" if you get audio, the main DSP chip is bad, get an estimate first since it can only be verified by bench testing the unit. It's not a cheap repair 400-500 range. Most new Yamaha receiver's in the modest range run 500-800- new. Hope this helps

Yamaha RX V 657 - No Sound Output, and No input detection


Bad DSP chip. The only other possibility is if you have the "Direct" on. On the front of the receiver it's a small button. Also make sure your "Speaker Select" A/B is "on" You will see it on the display, it's also a small button on the front of the receiver. If all this is correct and you still have no audio, it's a bad DSP chip. Not worth repair, it's 400-500 repair. Not very common in a Yamaha RX-V series, but I have seen it. I'm a Yamaha Dealer. If you need further help, post a comment and I will be glad to help you further.

Display panel does not light; sound is ok


It may not need repair. if you have it hooked up to a TV, by video, s-video, or component. Press the menu button on the remote and you can see the main menu of the unit on the TV. Navigate the menu up/down/left/right/enter until you get to "display". You should be able to turn the display of the receiver on/off. If you don't have the manual. http://www.yamaha.com/yamahavgn/Documents/YEC/Stereo_Receivers/Manual/RX-797_e_U_p.pdf That's the PDF from Yamaha. I haven't used this particular unit, but that's the way it's done on all the other series. ie. RX-V or RX-Z. Hope this helps

Yamaha RX-V2700 no sound from any speaker outputs


Make sure that you have the correct input signal selected.
Also, check if the sound is not muted.
If you have a multi-room speaker switch, make sure it is set correctly to main speakers.
