RCA 3870 Receiver problem..RE/RE

Ok, I think I did what you said...but what I did do is plug it in and checked to see if I had 120v at the primary terminals on the Power Transformer Pioneer # ATS7263, and there is 120. However, on the DC side, I get nothing. I set my voltmeter to 50v DC to check, and even when crossing the terminals in all directions, not even a bump. Those 3 "little" fuses on the AC side that are underneath the little board soldered, I set my meter to ohm, and they all 3 have resistance while unplugged.

Am I correct to assume the power transformer is dead?

On the secondary of the transformer you would still have an ac voltage. The dc voltage will be after the bridge rectifier.

Rca receiver overload message

Power the unit off , Disconnect all the speakers ,power the unit back on and check to see if you get the same message, if so one or all of your speakers could be bad. This message appears when there is too much load on the output IC's,generally causes shutdown. Also try blowing the system out with canned air, And removing anything that prevents the unit from getting enough ventilation.

Stand by /on led lights up but that is it. Click sound when ON is pushed. It is like it won't power up. Took off cover two fuses inside appear fine.

Check the main power transformer.

ohm out the primary side should be about 2 ohms. and check for 120v ac when you power it on.

If 120v is present on the primary side check for ac on the secondary. if none you need to replace the tranformer.

If it doesn't have 120v ac on the primary there is an open fuse or bad solder connection.

If you find an open fuse check for a shorted output transistor pair.

good luck

Need a hookup diagram for yamaha rx-v461 plus yamaha yst-sw216 please

Here you can find the manual for your subwoofer. Looking at its back side, it has 2 RCA plug input for stereo. Receiver has just mono sub output, but as low frequencies are not easily locatable, mono is perfectly OK.
Just connect receiver SUB-OUTPUT with RCA cable to your subwoofer's RCA LEFT input. Then adjust volume to match rest of your speakers.

My sx-315 pioneer receiver overheated and shut down.

Probably the thermal fuse in the main power transformer. Check for ac on both the primary and secondary of the transformer. If you have 120v ac on the primary when the standby light is off and nothing on the secondary you need a new transformer.

If you look at the manual, there are steps detailed to reset the receiver. This usually happens if the receiver becomes very hot. Try resetting and you should be okay.
The other problem is short circuit on the speaker wires. Check the speaker wires again.

My OSD does not come on

Try plugging a video rca cable into the "monitor" on the back of the mixer (second down or something like that) and then to your tv. This pumps the osd signal to the tv where you can manipulate the menu options.

Think this analogy:
remote = keyboard
receiver = computer
tv = monitor

You need a connection ultimately to the tv for the osd to work.

Plugging in with multiple voltage requirements.

no... it will put out 220volts, same as the wll socket voltage. you will need a 220v to 110v stepdown transformer to run the sub.
