It seems that the main sound processor comes into an error and so seems a fault on the board. Since checking for a component level solution is very tricky as the access is not friendly, what could be done initially is to remove and reset the boards, check for faulty connectors that seems to vibrate and bring in these faults. Check the solde joints of the connector pins on the board. Check and solder the processor IC and the allied circuits. If the fault seems to disappear when the set heats up then you must check using a magnifier.Check the solder on the audio driver outputs of the center, main , front and rear are clean.
If not refer and proceed with consensus as a false move can cripple the set.

Yamaha rx-v461 turns on then off


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 ntermittent shutdown.

Add things one at a time until you identify the one component (probably a speaker) that is causing the problem.

In your case it is obviously not heat, speaker load or excessive volume at the moment.

You could unplug it then turn it upside down and shake it to see if something metallic is rattling around inside it. Maybe open it up and sniff for burnt components, but even if you see something obvious and replace it you migh not know what the original cause for failure was, so you may just be wasting time and sacrificing new parts.

I JUST REPLACED MY OLD RECEIVER WITH A YAMAHA AND DON'T SEE WHERE TO CONNECT THE POWER FOR THE CD AND TAPE PLAYER. DO I PLUG THEM INTO A POWER STRIP?


Yes, that will be fine just make sure its the same AC power as the new Yamaha is using.

Before connecting any AC mains always turn off your Amp, and don't turn back on again until all the signal cables for the new equipment are connected.

When checking if it all works, always start with low volume to check everything is correct.

Hope this helps
Thanks for using FixYa

Buzzing on certain speakers (but not all)


do you have the problem in stereo mode (no suround) Try to disconnect rear speakers and see if you still have the buzzing if you do then disconnect center and check,using only the mains,process of elimination, check your polarity + - on speakers and check the wire.I would double check ALL connections even RCAs

My Yamaha HTR-6050 shuts off at random times and says "Check SP Cable"


That is a check the speaker wire error, caused by a short or perceived short. If you look at the back of the receiver you may see 1 strand of the wire loose, they are very hard to see sometimes. You may use banana plugs as it is painful to get everything hooked up without a few loose strands.

If there is still the issue check your speaker connections for the same issue. If they are in ceiling/wall speakers disconnect them all then plug them in one at a time to narrow it down.

If the issue persists perhaps one of your speaker wires has a short somewhere, could be a misplaced drywall screw from hanging a picture, or a carpet tack strip, or a pet deciding it was a nice chew toy.

If you are completely sure it is none of those then I would say it is a bad speaker or receiver. Try changing in and out known good speakers/receivers if you have access to them to see which one it is.

Good luck
