Redbird,

What do you have in the "multi channel input" jacks on the rear of the receiver? Those inputs Right, Left, Center, Surround R+L, and Sub are used when selecting 6 channel mode. They bypass the receivers surround processor board.

I was told i might have a fuse blown on my htr-5940,cause the 3 left speakers work for the test but not for actual playing.is that the problem?and where can i find the fuse?


There's no separate fuse for test versus operational speaker function.

Evaluate the source for why the "3 left" speakers (whatever that means) don't work for program material.

What could be causing the power to cut out on our HTR 5940 receiver


somewhere along the way something is shorting out.

First I would check the impedance of your speakers most common are 8ohm speakers and these can be driven by most amplifiers.

Some brands of speakers are 4 ohm and even less are 2 ohm. These lower resistance speakers put a great deal of strain on most amplifiers and may cause them to go into "protect" mode and temporarily shut down.(less resistance requires more ampsrage to drive them)

Next thing to check is to make sure that none of your speaker wires have any loose strands that may be shorting out either at the speaker terminals on the amplifier itself but also behind each speaker.

Another test would be to connect 1 speaker at a time and turn the volume up to see if perhaps the short is being caused by 1 particular speaker or 1 particular channel for example it may be your front left amplifier that is failing causing the entire system to shut down.

If you can't diagnose the problem on your own you may have to have a service tech look at it. I always caution people to first establish a "value" on any item that may need repair and then decide the maximum amount of money you would invest in repairing the unit Taking into consideration that 1 hour of labor and a relatively inexpensive part can easily add up to $100 to $150.

In the past when I have had similar issues it usually came back to being something basic that we overlooked in the installation, Ie: a bad cable loose connection etc.

Yamaha HTR-6130 Front right and left speakers with no sound


As simple as this sounds, try hitting the speaker a/b button on the front of the unit, next to the headphone jack. I had the same problem, and was about to package the whole thing back up and go back to Best Buy when I hit this button and then the audio test worked.

Turns on then off.


It probably needs a set of output transistors, 2 pre-amp transistors and a 5.6v zener diode. Possibly a resistor or two. I've fixed many of these. Definitely a job for a pro.
