Question about Yamaha RX-Z1 Receiver

Open Question

RX Z1 lose sound, turn off/on, 2nd click not happening, no sound

I had the other problem hear and it went away. AFter 4 years of heavy use, about 8 mo ago, sound went off, turned unit off, back on and walla 'I got sound'. I didn't use it for months and swapped optical cable with cable box optical and got sound. Now, 3 months later, when the sound goes off, and I turn unit off and then on, I get the first click in the circuitry, but the second and the speaker indicators do not turn back on. I am ging to disconnect all speakers and see if the unit cycles with speaker indicators coming back on. If so then I may have a speaker drain issue. So, I will add pairs of speakers and see if the units cycles. If at some point it does not, then I may have a short on that channel or a speaker problem. To rule out the speaker I can put them on a working channel and see if they fire up. It will be time consuming. bjmallard_at_aol_dot_com for any similar issues and comments.

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V1500 Shuts down after 2 seconds

This set is getting old and is in the Archives section of the Yamaha consumer guide area. But, you can still download the owners manual if you need one. If it is going into protection mode even when there are no speakers connected OR when the sound level is very, very low or zero it is not good news. Yes, unplugging the line cord will cause the protection system to reset itself. But, if it shuts itself off again soon after rebooting it is a sign of bad grease in the output stages -- in all probability. Let me explain: The audio output transistors are mounted to a large heatsink which keeps them cool during operation. They are electrically isolated from touching the heatsink by an electrical insulating washer. But, in order to keep them cool and allow for good thermal conductivity of the heat generated by the output transistors the washers are treated with a heat conducting grease. Over time this grease will dry out and lose its heat conductivity ability allowing the temperature of the transistors to rise; as the heat goes up they conduct more current and cause the protection system to activate and shut the set down (in order to avoid damage to the set). That is the most common cause of your symptoms. However, there are several other possibilities, but I give this explanation a 90% probability based on my experience.

SOURCE: Yamaha Receiver (rxv3000) has intermitent power problem

Most, but not all of the voltage regulators are cooled by the same heat sink
that the output transistors are attached to and get overheated when you crank up the volume. Although this unit has a cooling fan, after some time the heat sink gets HOT and will age these parts. There are also a group of three current limit/ voltage drop resistors supplying one regulator that will give up too. This is not for most DIY folks. Repairs are available in certain parts of the country. I know of one you can ship the unit to and get it fixed like I did.

I have the same problem as you but no thunderstorm. Mine happened after I connected speakers with the unit operating and had a speaker wire short at the back of the unit. Got a whiff of smoke and now I have that DSL1U unit clicking same as you. Did anyone suggest a fix?

I have this exact same problems. It depends on the signal format somehow I've noticed. It's extremely frustrating. I'm wondering if we just got a bad 5.1 processor?

My RX-z1 yamaha receiver shuts off right when I turn it on, what do I do?


Hello,
Check and make sure that you dont have any wires shorted out. Also make sure that its not in a tight enclosed space because it can overheat quickly. It also wouldnt hurt to hard-reboot the unit. Simply turn it on, then unplug power from it for about 15 seconds. If non of these options shed some light, than you might need to get it serviced.
Good Luck

Yamaha RX-V1400 receiver powers off, in case it becomes louder


Hey, yeah that can be frustrating.

When you turn it up do you hear the relay or a clicking sound, then you turn it on and it comes back below the +2db?

Try unplugging All the speaker wires from the unit. Turn on the unit and listen for the click.
after the click, turn it up past the 2+ db mark and see if you hear it click or shut down. If it did not click off, then suspect a shorted crossover on one of your speakers.
2nd test is to plug in One speaker, and test it at high volume, it will not harm it. If it shuts off disconnect that speaker and try another. Only one at a time.
If it works at high volume, you need to isolate one of your speakers and i bet it has a shorted crossover that has been cooked. P.S. If one is bad, suspect they will fail at a later date.
If they all fail, use a friends speaker and try it before sending it to a repair shop.

P.S. i found one on ebay i think you can get for under $100 bucks in the box.

Rx v2095 receiver - No sound from either front main speaker


I have had similar problems on a Denon. I suspect your DSP needs repaired and/or replaced. Need to contact authorized Yamaha repair shop or a competent local repair facility. I have a Yamaha RX-V2092 which is similarly designed. I have had it for 10 years. Hope this helps.

Display is permanently "off" on the Yamaha RX-V620


Sounds like the LED that lights up the display has burnt out. An easy fix, if you're not afraid to take the front panel apart and resolder a new one.

Yamaha RX-V793 flashing light on volume control and no volume


Per Yamaha support page: The volume light on my Yamaha AV receiver is flashing, what does this mean ? The "MUTE" function on your remote control has been activated. The reason that you can still hear a very low sound is that the muting circuit within your stereo is not a full mute, but rather a -20dB mute. To deactivate the "MUTE" function, simply press the "MUTE" button on your remote control. (Make sure the volume control is turned down to avoid damage to your system.) If you misplace or lose your remote control, you will have to purchase a new remote control unit, as there is no duplicate function on the front panel of your stereo. Unplugging the stereo will not deactivate the muting circuit, as the microprocessor "remembers" if the muting circuit was active prior to being turned off or unplugged. If you need to purchase a remote control, you may order one directly from our parts office. You may reach them by dialing (714) 522-9888 from 8 am to 3 p.m. Pacific Time, Monday through Friday. If you have any other questions, please contact our customer service department by dialing (800) 292-2982 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
