Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Have seen a lot of similar issues here at the site and on the field.

I have posted in your original problem, excerpt below:
Initially, a workaround:

  • as you posted, audio out of the DVD goes to the receiver;
  • HDMI out of the DVD goes to the Schaub Lorenz LCD.
Even if it were a compatibility issue or HDMI processor issue on the receiver, the above should get you going.

Then the non functional HDMI could be attended to at your convenience. Technically, it would appear to the the HDMI signal processor of the receiver.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

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.

Greetings, my rx v663 will not power up no lights not anything.What could be my problem?


These amplifiers have a fuse link inside of the main transformer. If you want to, you can open the unit up and see if you have the main power into the transformer. Then see if you have any voltage on the secondary of the transformer, if not then the internal fuse has opened (usually due to heat). The tranformer will need to be replaced. Yamaha will not sell parts to consumers, so you may need to take it to a local repair shop for repairs.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

Yamaha rx-v995


I'm in the same boat w/ my v995 - it has a bad volume motor and its $150 for the part. You want to sell your v995? Adam

Yamaha rx v663 receiver, turntable input


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.

Audio but no video from Sony Blu-Ray w/ HDMI hookup to RX-V663


Okay...my first contribution to any forum but I have the same problem (Yamaha RX-V663 and Samsung Blu Ray) and found the solution. The problem is you probably have your HDMI cables from your DVD player and reciever connected to a DVI input on your TV. The DVI may have problems communicating--not HDCP compliant. My system was working great then I hit a button on my remote...just playing around. I think it was the pure audio and I turned off the receiver. After that, the audio worked but there was no video. After many frustrating hours, the fix was to unplug the HDMI and DVI cable then turn the power off, cycle the power again, and plug the HDMI and DVI cables back in (the DVI was the last cable plugged in, not sure if that matters). By unplugging everthing you've reset the communication between the HDMI components and the DVI TV.

See page 18 of the yamaha owners manual, second to last note on bottom right of the page. It says there may be a problem...

I also noticed that the yamaha reciever was sending 1080p (my older tv is 1080I) and that is why the video wouldn't display on the TV. You can see this in the video signal info screen, unfortunately there is no setting to switch it back, just recycle the cables and power and it should reset.

Uncredibly frustrating but I got my picture back!
