SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V1500 Shuts down after 2 seconds

Asouth, I'm curious if you have solved the problem with your receivers? It sounds like the same problem that I am having with my RX-V1500. I would appreciate any response that you would have to this inquiry.

SOURCE: No sound coming out of back speakers when watching DVDs

Make sure you have set blu ray player out put to bitstream,if you have set to pcm for hd master audio and dolby true you need to have a amp to decode this and hook up with a hdmi cable.If your amp has hdmi in and out but no high def audio you may still get multi channel audio.

Hope this helps.
CABLE GUY.

SOURCE: Yamaha RX V2400 keeps shutting off

When it shuts off, does it display anything on the front like "ck speakers" you could have a shorted wire or bad speaker. Sounds more likely than a bad receiver. Yamaha is pretty bulletproof in "self preservation" circuitry! about the only thing that takes them out is lightning and major power surges. I have been selling and installing Yamaha receivers since 1995 and have only ever seen one with a problem that was unrelated to power. and I've done hundreds. If your not using HDMI, and the Video portion of the receiver, I would definately keep the unit $ 1500.00 is no cheap receiver. Try disconnecting the speakers, then turn on the unit with a source connected like cable/sat/fios on then crank the vol and let it set, if it cuts out, yes you've got a problem internally, however, I would stronly suggest metering all of the speakers and wires for shorts. There is an internal fuse as well right near the power cord, you have to pop the top to get to it, If you have a multimeter check the fuse with resistance tone. If you get tone, you have a good fuse if not If you need to replace it. They can be found at Radio Shack etc. If the fuse is OK, chances are you've got bad transistor(s) and needs to go to service. Repair should be under 200, well worth it. If you have further questions, post a comment and I will get back to you ASAP. Hope this helps

chances are youve got a short at the rear of the receiver. look for frayed speaker wires touching the chassis of the stereo. use a flashlight. it only takes one tiny hair of a wire to short it out

Receiver turns off after DVD is turned on. Clicking noise. Check speaker wires


It's a issue with alot of these Receivers I personally had this issue on my Receiver. the issue is a ground Fault the protection mode for over current in some of Yamaha's and HK receivers are the Two main Relay's if the Ground inside the amp is lose or is causing a Ground Loop this will happen. as you turn on the DVD there is a slight leak of Positive current tru a bad Capacitor and Resistor on the DVD player causing the Ground to send a instant burst of -Vcc to the Amp's ground setting the Protection mode on. but because it's not caused by the Receiver it self sometimes it looks like the Amp just shut it self down. In better words Try to Ground the DVD before you hook up again. use the Outlet Ground also if you use a 1K resistor on the ground wire it will help to keep any noise from coming in. Let me know. Marcelo Good Luck.

When watching a movie on DVD player the Yamaha shuts down and when you power it back up and tell you to check audio cable


Do as it asks.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

My Sony Vaio VGN-CR320E turns itself off all the time. I have already formatted it, but the problem continues... What can I do?


IS it getting hot. Check the fans. It'll shut down if the fans aren't running and everything gets to hot. You might be able to use compressed air and blow out your vents and fan blades. Dust builds up and limits air flow causing extra heat, and then shut down. IF your running your laptop on your lap, make sure your not covering any vents or air flow. Its easy to do and not realize it.

The amp/receiver JVC RX DV31 is displaying Overheat


Turn off all power, really should wait several hours for the capacitors in side to discharge. Remove the four screws from the sides and three screws from the top cover. Lift from the back pivoting towards the front to remove the cover. Inside you will find three small fuses. One fuse by itself and two close together. The fuse you need to replace is the fuse closest to the rear of the set of two. It is located next to the power clip for the fan. I believe the fuse is a 120v 2 amp fuse but check the board to be sure. if the fan is not working (you should be able to hear it) it will need to be replaced or if the power is not getting to it, a new power source added. I used a 12v 50ma adapter from the junk box.

Auto shut down of unit


the audio amps may be overheating and shutting down. a lot of electronic devices don't receive heat sink compound when being assembled and the heat doesn't transfer as it should. Try cooling the unit either in a plastic bag in the refrigerator or placing it in a cool airstream directed at the rear of the unit. If it's in a stack of other electronic devices, place something between the units to allow air to circulate. I hot-melt glue tinkertoy wheels to the bottom of the units myself to separate them.
