Question about Yamaha RX-V1400 Receiver
I have had this reciever for about a year and I came home today and turned it on and it turned on for about 10 seconds and then turned off. the clicking noise that I normally hear when I turn it off or on sounds a little different.Does anyone know whats going on?
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...

Odd, what model Comcast do you have. Yamaha remote codes have been pretty much the same for 20 years. Even the oldest receiver remote will still work the vol on a newer unit. Get back to me with the model of the remote and I will see what I can work out for you.

I suggest you run self diag. press [FM/AM] key + [Input mode] key and press the [power/standby] switch.
ps prt = power supply problem
dc prt = shorted output or leakly cap in channel
tmp prt means to hot on heatsink
you'll likely have to measure the resistances of the output FETs to find a short,

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.

The volume keys should be working by default, but you may have volume punch through turned on (meaning the remote is sending signals for TV or CABLE volume function no matter what mode you are actually on). To unlock volume control for AUX mode, do the following:
1. Press and release AUX
2. Press and hold SETUP until the remote blinks twice
3. Type 993
4. Press and release VOL-
The remote should blink four times to confirm unlock.

It will need to go to service. It's usually 5 caps and a couple transistors that go bad.
Usually from a power surge or brown out. depending on where you are located will
determine where to send it. http://usa.yamaha.com/dealers/service_locator/index.html
enter your zip code and you will be directed to the nearest Authorized Yamaha Service Center. The average cost for this repair is between $200-250. Sorry for the bad news!
