Question about Yamaha YHT-440 System

1 Answer

No sound from the reciever

When my receiver(YHT 440) was ON last month there was a heavy thunderstorm/lightning which caused my receiver not to produce sound, But I see the display (the menu in the front panel) and everything works fine except there is no sound from the receiver (Tried playing DVD,CD,FM and all the stuff but no response). Please let me know if anyone had the same issue and how to fix this?.

Re: No sound from the reciever

Plug in your headphone, if you hear music then it could be the speaker's fuse blown up, or the speaker's circuit breaker shut down. If nothing sound then possibly the strong static has burned down the audio/receiver's circuitry section.

sounds like your speakers might not match your receiver. check the back of your speakers for the ohms eg 4 , 6 ,8 impedance.
you have to match the specs of the receiver otherwise it cuts out.

Sounds like it is going into protect. This is usually caused by a problem in the amplifier section. I would start by making sure none of the output transistors are shorted.

Hi I have a Yamaha yht 292 surround sound system with a model htr 6230 reciever. I have a panasonic (42'') plasma HDTV (model TC P42X1) attached to the receiver by a HDMI cable. I also have a Samsung Blue...

As per HTR-6230 specifications ( the HDMI function is only "audio-passthru", which means your receiver is not able to get the audio from HDMI cable, it can only pass it forward to TV. You would need a receiver with "HDMI switch" to be able to listen to audio via HDMI cable. You can find such receiver by looking if it supports TrueHD audio (which can be transferred ONLY via HDMI cable).

With your current receiver, you can connect it to the Blue-ray player via Optical SPDIF cable. I have checked the specs and both receiver and BD player supports optical connection.

Phillips hts3410d no sound VERY dim led

Have you had any thunderstorms recently in your area? if so, this could be a pulse sent threw your system form an electrical storm. this happens often during dangerous thunderstorm activity. Also, your electrical wiring in your home can produce this as well due to a faulty circuit breaker box or lose ceiling fan hook ups. the best scenario could be a defective product. this way, you can get a full refund or a replacement set up.

Speakers popping

Call LG if they are in warranty, should be after 4 months. Try reseating all connections including power, or changing cables. If it shows on all of your speakers, If it doesn't move with one or more speakers, you probably have a leaky capacitor in your reciever and will need to return it for repair or replacement. Hopefully its not just the receiver choosing to spike an amp channel at will. Could possibly be an electrical appliance in your home causing the noise by switching on and/or off. Have somebody walk around your home turning things on and off to see if your receiver is affected. If nothing pops, it very well could be your receiver. An experiment to try is using a different power outlet. Use a long heavy duty extension cord if needed. You want to get power from a different circuit. If that doesn't fix it, try a UPS device (like those used on computers). This will isolate you from the power line, and hopefully from the pops.
