It sounds like the volume control pod has gone bad and needs replaced (The knob shaft connects to the pod main body and the inside of the volume pod is what controls the rate of volume,If the inside becomes worn ,broken or dirty the volume will become erratic) Replace volume pod ! ..You may try cleaning by taking off the volume knob and getting a can of pressure air and blowing the dust out!
Please rate response!!

If it uses a shaft-encoder type control, it's usually an easy fix. I've uploaded a video that explains how to repair this easily and with nothing more than about an hour of time and some cleaning products :-)

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V800 volume control

i would say that the component that controls the sound level (called a potentionmeter) or (varible resistor) is either broken or faulty....you will need to remove the cover and inspect the area around the volume control just to make sure it is not broken or that any wiring has just become dry jointed....if all is good then what i would suggest to do is to find out the value of the pot...normally there around 10-50K then youll need to get a replacement...if this still dosen't fix it or your confident enough to look or fix it yourself i would take it to a local electronics repair shop....remeber to disconnect unit from power before removing cover hope this helps,ben

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V800 shuts down when any control button is pressed

What if you DON'T use the remote? Does it shut down when just using it?

If SO, you have a bigger problem.

If NOT, it sounds like the remote is hosed - sending a code to shut off.

Do you have another remote of any brand that you could set to do something simple, like change volume? Don't train it from the original, though, or it would do the same thing.

Remote does not move volume knob


Unplug the receiver for a minute then plug it back in. This resets the controls. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I will help you troubleshoot further. Hope this helps

No picture from wii


The RX-V800 switches the various video signal types separately.
Since you are feeding S-Video to the TV the composite (yellow) input from your Wii is not going anywhere.
If you cant get S-Video output from the Wii then I'd suggest a simple Composite to S-video adaptor plug ($5 say). It worked for me with a Game Cube.
Cheers

Yamaha RX-V800 Composite Video Signal Problem


Hey there fontdude, I will begin assuming you are running your a/v cable into your receiver and then out to the TV or Monitor. If this is the case, I suggest you run the video cable direct from DVD or VCR device to Tv/monitor. You can still run the audio through your receiver. The nature of your problem was probably related to video signal strength being weakened as it ran through your receiver. Good Luck! Let me know how it works for you.

It has lost partially the mechanical connection between the volume control knob and the volume control pot.


The knob could be "stripped". A drop of a slightly resilient glue should do the trick. Do not use rigid adhesives, as this will prevent future service to this area of your receiver....accordianman

Rx-v800 shuts off after few seconds


Hi, You should try to see, on main board, the ground G2(TP00385), just to make sure if the screw is too tight. Its location on Schematic Diagram (Main) is E8. All the best, Rasgador
