Volume Control Failure on Yamaha RX-V690 receiver.

I have lost the volume control on my receiver. It shows the text on the screen when I press the volume up and volume down buttons on the remote but the knob doesn't move. I can manually lower the volume by turning the knob. My guess, after removing the knob, is that there is a motor that turns the knob and hopefully a repairable peice. This is an excellent receiver that I'd rather not part with. Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

    that is the exact same problem I have on my RX-V995. Have been resorting to manually turning the knob by hand. But would really like to fix the issue. My guess is the same as yours, volume knob motor is failing. Anyone has a service manual?

Hi...
All the speakers are connected at both ends?
If so, you have a power amp electrical break.
Not an easy fix.

On the bottom of the remote on right side, right next to the master volume - key . it is actually called muting instead of just mute. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Yamaha RX V690 keeps shutting

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect 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.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Hi.

The volume knob issue alone sounds like it's hardware-related and therefore not easily fixed. Also, since the remote appears to be working (the LED's are lighting up), but the unit is not controlled anymore, the IR sensor is probably faulty as well. I would seriously consider sending this AV receiver in for repair. If it's still within warranty, you shouldn't need to pay anything for the repair.

Manual for your receiver: http://www2.yamaha.co.jp/manual/pdf/av/english/re/RX-V1000.pdf

It's not much but I hope this helps.

Yamaha rxv 870 - volume does not work from remote(s)


hi i have the same problem. yamaha rx-v870 with a remote control that works perfectly except for the volume up/down. i pressed the buttons for a minute and applied some lemon gunk remover liquid and this helped for a very short period. i am wondering if the problem is with the little motor inside the receiver that rotates the volume knob itself, as opposed to an infrared problem on the transmitter/receiver.

I have a Yamaha AX-V690 receiver but I do not have a remote control. Can I buy remote for this unit oris there a universal remote I can use? Thank you. Plz reply to: molly@prtc.net. Thks.


You can purchase a remote for it if you would like. The part number for that remote is: VS713700 You could also use a universal remote if you would like. But keep in mind that most of the inexpensive universal remotes only support the major functions such as Volume, Tune Channel, etc.

This is a replacement, but this particular remote is pretty expensive, and you could probably get a nice universal for that price (the lowest I found it was $69.95). Good luck, hope I have helped!

Volume control


This is an option that is generally available from your TV set. Sony, Sanyo and others have it. It may be called differently by its owner, but it's most likey available from your TV's menu settings.
One probable name could be AVC (Auto Volume Control). Good luck!

The volume knob is flashing red on my AX-SD1 amp..no sound.


Unplug the receiver, let it sit for a minute or two then plug it back in. It's either in "mute" or in Protection. Generally, Yamaha's will say "Ck. Spkrs" If it still has a problem, post a comment and I will look up some sources and help some more.

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.

Yamaha rx-v1200 volume control


if you are not really that technical type that can make repairs then it will be very hard for you to replace it yourself. not hard to find the volume control, it is mounted on a board. you dismantle the board first then remove desolder the volume control. it think you can onyl get the parts from yamaha service.

It has lost partially the mechanical connection between the volume control knob and the volume control pot.


The knob could be "stripped". A drop of a slightly resilient glue should do the trick. Do not use rigid adhesives, as this will prevent future service to this area of your receiver....accordianman
