Question about Yamaha HTR-6140 Receiver

The HDMI "input" ports damage output ports of connecting devices

I've connected a cable box HDMI output and a Blu Ray DVD HDMI output to the HTR HDMI input. The connection worked at first however after a few days, both device's HDMI output ports no longer output video. I've tested them by connecting them directly to the TV. The component video of both devices still work.

I believe the HTR HDMI "input" port is blowing up the HDMI output ports of devices that I connect to it.

I have replaced the cable box and am thinking about testing my theory by connecting it to the HTR again.

Has anyone heard of this problem? Is there a non-destructive way to test my theory?

Thank you,
Norm

    I've tried different cables, and re-connecting multiple times and the HDMI ports appear to have failed after time connected to the HDMI input ports of the HTR.

    When my replacement cable box came, I used the same cable to connect directly to the TV and it works. Thanks anyway.

    I have exactly the same problem . My reciever is new but if I only slightly touch the HDMI cable the picture on tne t.v. is lost. However, if I wiggle the other end of the cable that connects to my Hd box or T.V. the picture is not affected. It seems to be a problem with the reciever 's HDMI inputs as opposed to the cable? In addition I had to return the first reciever I bought (same Yamaha) because the DVD input was not working on it. Any solutions? I probably will end up returning this reciever. i don't want something new that already has issues that may turn into bigger problems. I'm assuming this is not a widespread problem with recievers?

I know this sounds stupid, but have you "toggled" or "played" with the HDMI cables? are they the same manufacturer? HDMI channel connections are very fickle. If just one connection is not exactly correct, they go to a limp, no go status. Since they run at such a minimal voltage, i can't see them "blowing" the outputs on the devices.however....if your cable has a serial type output for video only, I would connect the hdmi convertor to it and see if it works.

Marantz how to connect 6005 amplifier to ipod


There are many solutions, I show two. The tip photo, shows a more expansive one. the lower photo the cheaper one. But both have two tulip plugs on the side for the amplifier and one 3,5 mm stereo telephone plug to the other side.
I tried both on a good stereo set, and could not hear different quality in sound. My guess, the quality comping from my iPods, iPhone and iPad is not the same as from my CD player. On the CD player, a better cable proved to give a better sound.

Unless your PC is Bluetooth capable, you'll need to get a Bluetooth device to make it so. This is just one of many such devices to select from. Amazon com Roker Ultra Mini CSR Bluetooth 4 0 Usb Adator for PC and... They vary in size and price. Shop around to find one that best suits your budget. But you want an adaptor/receiver specifically for Bluetooth. (you will need an empty USB port for the adaptor)

Hope this information helps, best of luck!

My right ear bud cuts out every time I move my head. I've only had this pair about six months.


It shows that there is a loose connection.

Take the item back to place of purchase and get a replacement. It should be under warranty.

My ipod is just playing without the sound carrying through to the speakers. I dont know how to make it work?


Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters.
Original iPhone only: While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port:



To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times.
If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth).
If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.
If restarting the iPhone doesn't resolve the issue, try restoring the device.
