Yamaha HTR-5990 Receiver

While adjusting the speaker levels using the onscreen menu, My receiver quit recognizing the surround speakers. Troubleshooting steps taken: Checked connections at unit. disconnected power for a few minutes and re-energized. Attempted to activate the surround speakers from the on screen menu. Switched surround wires to front terminals to confirm connections at speakers are tight. Unit is 1 year old and haven't experienced any problems.

    Have had this unit for a couple of years. In the last couple of weeks it has developed a problem where when the system is turned on - receiver normally in standby- there is an area of video in the same location as the setup menu that is gray with a smaller portion in the lower right corner in a different color. Selecting setup will bring up the menu and return clears the screen. If I adjust the volume the colored area reappears and I cannot see the volume level being selected.

I JUST EXPERIENCED THE SAME SITUATION HERE IS THE SOULTION YAMAHA SENT ME TO RESET THE SYSTEM HTR-5990 YAMAHA HTR-5990 FACTORY PRESET PROCEDURES All models require the STANDBY/ON button to be turned OFF to start the reset process. NOTE: The remote control cannot be used during the reset procedure. All necessary buttons to complete the reset process are located on the front panel of the receiver. This procedure is not intended to correct intermittent shut-off symptoms or problems MODEL: HTR-5990 (U.S.A. model/s) (BEFORE YOU CONTINUE, PLEASE READ THE ABOVE NOTES!) 1. Before you start this procedure, locate the MASTER ON/OFF button and the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button on the Front Panel of the unit. 2. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR RECEIVER’S MASTER ON/OFF HAS BEEN TURNED OFF. 3. With the Right Hand, press and hold the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button. With the Left Hand, press the MASTER ON/OFF button and HOLD both buttons for no more than “3” SECONDS, AT THE SAME TIME. SP IMP. * 8 MIN. will appear on the display, which indicates you are in the Diagnostics Mode. 4. Rotate the PROGRAM KNOB to the right (ONCE) until the display reads PRESET *CANCEL. 5. Press the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button (ONCE) and the display will change to PRESET RESET. 6. Turn the unit off by pressing the MASTER ON/OFF button. 7. Wait 5 seconds, then turn the unit on by pressing the MASTER ON/OFF button. You have now reset your component to the factory settings. NOTE: Yamaha receivers don’t have to be reset during normal operation. It is not recommended that you reset the receiver unless a setting has been changed that you are not aware of, or the receiver is not operating properly. The reset procedure will clear an incorrect setting that might be causing abnormal operation. GOOD LUCK

Can I connect two 4 ohm speakers to make it play on single 8 ohm speaker channel on a receiver


Yes, two 4 ohm speakers wired in series will present an 8 ohm load, though even with matched speakers they are likely to produce different volume levels.

It is probable the receiver will be quite happy using a single 4 ohm speaker if only modest volume levels are used. Many popular hi-fi amps quote power outputs for both 4 and 8 ohm indicating either could be used.

The signal that comes from most tv's via the optical output is a stereo signal only. That is what your receiver is reading. You would have to manually set your receiver to decode the signal into surround,.

4 ohm speakers with 8 ohm receivers


Please check with the manual of your receiver whether it is capable of running 4 ohm speakers.

if yes, then please go ahead, you will not loose any Sound quality. Sound quality will depend a lot on the performace of the speaker as well as the frequency range it can deliver.

If no, please do not connect. Though, you might be able to play and listen to the music, but it will overload your receiver!!

If you are not sure, please let me know the brand and model of your receiver and I can check for you.

Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!

No sound from Yamaha HTR-5990


You must be sure that you also have "audio" cables connected to the receiver to make this all work. As far as the TV is concerned, the same applies....accordianman
