Question about Audio & Video Receivers
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?
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
tmp prt means to hot on heatsink
you'll likely have to measure the resistances of the output FETs to find a short,

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.

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.

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.
