Question about Yamaha HTR-5560 Receiver

Open Question

Receiver makes clicking sound when I push power, but does not turn on.

My receiver has been having problems for the last few days. I first noticed when I was listening to the radio and out of the blue, the receiver shut itself off. Then, a few days later when I tried to turn it on it turned itself immediately off. Over and over I pressed the button until finally it received power and came on. Last night when I tried to turn it on it made a clicking sound but their is nothing on the screen that comes up and it does not have any sound. The warranty is expired and I took it apart, but I can't tell what is wrong with it.

The relay contacts are most likely bad in the relay and will most likely happen again. If you know how to solder, take out the relay and look up the numbers on the internet and see what you can find. If not, try to find where the manufactuer is located and call them to see where you can get a new relay. Good Luck

This maybe an easy one. Have you unhooked all the wires going in to the stereo. "SP wires" means you have wires to the speakers are touching and the stereo is shutting down to avoid overloading. Hope this helps...

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

Since this is only happening when running DVD I would troubleshout surround sound speakers/ subwoofer or whatever speaker you are using when watching DVD and is not in use when watching TV:

1.) Make sure the speaker wire is not shorted at speakers as well as at receiver. Depending on method used to connect the receiver and speakers you may have short circuit even when you think you connected receiver and speakers properly.

2.) Make sure the polarity of the speaker wire matches the receiver.

Hello: I would like to know if you could tell me if there is a way to get this receiver to work again. As it does not turn on when powering it up.

It sounds like the power supply has gone out on it, I am having no luck in finding a replacement part for you though, sorry.

How to I tell if my receiver is dead?

It sounds like it is dead, check the manual.

Be sure you have mains power to the receiver, it sounds like that failed. A loose plug or blown fuse could cause that type of problem as well. Here are a few links that may help.

I just picked up a used Onkyo TX-SR502 receiver that has no audio output on any of the channels. I obtained a service manual for it and have tried a few things, but dont know the source of the problem...

I have the same problem, how did you initiate debug mode ?
The receiver worked perfectly until a few days ago, then one day it didn't work when I turned it on but started working after a few minutes. The next day it did the same thing and the folowing day it didn't work at all. Have tried the power reset and also had the top off to see if there's anything really visibly burnt - nothing.
This receiver never got bad treatment, left on overnight a few times but not with sound running out, just powered up. It's a bit enclosed I guess so maybe overheated but I find it hard to believe.
Anyway, can someone advise how to initiate debug mode and also what to do with it.

When i push power button clicks on immediately

I had this problem also and discovered an easy way to trick it into powering on: Click the power button, then within 1 second of the receiver powering off, click the power button again. The receiver should stay on this time. This works with both the button on the receiver and the remote control.
I would like to know what causes this problem and whether or not I should be concerned about damage being done. I assume this is a power protection. I haven't tried plugging this receiver into a different power socket to test, but I don't think the power plug is the problem. Note: I have the subwoofer plugged into the power plug on the back of the receiver.

The receiver turns on riefly and then makes a

The clicking noise is the protection circuit., sounds like you have a grounded speaker wire, but you say the speakers are not connected so the amp may be toast. Is there any smell of burnt wires? This is ussuallt noticable near the circuit board if something failed!

Will not start up, no response after three attempts.

HI, theses popping sounds were capacitors exploding among other components as well. this is usually caused by a malfunctioning power board that has allowing way to much current in. the main has been fried in this case.

remove the cover and look for a fuse by the power cord solder(connection) point. if there is no fuse in the section, this will confirm major burn out.

Replace the entire main and power Assembly in this case.

Sudden failure to power up

I've had this happen a number of times with my receiver. This trick from the Troubleshooting guide in the owner's manual usually does the trick: To reset If an unusual condition in the display window or malfunction occurs, reset the unit as follows. 1 Press the POWER button to turn off the power. 2 Press the POWER button while pressing the ENTER button. Everything stored in memory after purchase is canceled. If the power cannot be turned off in step 1 because of a malfunction, reset by disconnecting the AC cord and carry out step 2.
