Question about Yamaha RX-V1500 Receiver

Yamaha Receiver shutting itself down

I'm new here and hoping that someone may have some thoughts on how to fix my problem. I have a Yamaha RX-V1500 Receiver that is powering down almost immediately after it is turned on (approx. 1 second max after turning on). I have read through some of the other posts and while this sounds similar, my display does not look unusual and does not have any "protection" type messages on the display in the brief time that it is on. We have checked all the speaker connections to make sure that everything is connected properly. We have disconnected all other components (i.e. satellite, tv, etc.) and it still is shutting itself down right away. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what the problem might be? I would appreciate any thoughts that anyone might have to solve this problem. Thanks in advance for your response!

    I have the same problem with a RX-V1500 Yamaha 7.1 channel reciever. When it first happened, I sent it into a certified Yamaha repair shop - they replaced the power supply. It worked for about 4 months with no problem - then it did it again - shuts down after a couple of seconds of turning it on. I unpluged all the cables and the power cable for a couple of weeks - then tried it again and it worked fine for about 2 months. Now it is doing the same thing - with all cables unpluged it will shut down after after a few seconds of turning it on - And yes, I have double checked polarity, cables, ohms --- everything. I work with professional audio systems - so I do know what i am doing - In my opion, this Yamaha is a lemon!

First of all, make yourself sure about the issue that the impedance between your amp and the speakers is fine. If it is so, the problem must be caused by some blown capacitors. The main reason could be surge or something. You had better call Yamaha service, and get your amp serviced.

I have a rx-v1500 hooked to my Hd tv and cable and dvd player.The remote does not emit any signal.It is daed. Replaced the batteries. Same thing. Ordered a new remote from Yamaha. Still no signal. Yamaha...


Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Display&contents=help_deadremote&uuid=A12963989782821
They also sell replacement remotes.
Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

My RX-V1500 Yamaha receiver shuts-off after 3 seconds .


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Yamaha RX-V1600 shuts down in seconds


Your Yamaha RX-V1600 has an audio output transistors are mounted to a large heat sink which keeps them cool during operation. They are electrically isolated from touching the heat sink 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).

You need to check or replace the transistor that's on the heat sink. Or you may contact a pro to replace it for you.

Good luck!

No subwofer operation 2year old system


Some systems don't send signal to subwoofer if speakers in SPEAKERS SETUP are set to LARGE, they redirect signal to center and front speakers. Maybe that's problem.

Yamaha Receiver RX-V630 not working (resets itself immediately)


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...

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.
