If a fuse was blown, it likely would have no power. However if the power board has overheated, the capacitors may have swelled up and burnt out and will only allow it to power on for a few seconds, then shut down. The capacitors can look swelled up or burnt or have burn marks on the power circuit board. You can test them with a continuity meter. Each component has a printed number of it's voltage and ohm resistance so you can test them.

I have a Samsung smart tv and a yamaha RX-V592 there is no optical or hdmi on the reviever. I really would like to listen to my tv in surround sound. What can I do?


You need a new receiver, that unit will only do Dolby Pro Logic and all 5 speakers will play but you have to use the composite audio cables(The red and white cables for audio) to get the audio into your receiver and the yellow is video which you can run thru the Yamaha as well if you want any on screen adjustments that unit may have and refer to your owners manual http://download.yamaha.com/api/asset/file/?language=en&site=usa.yamaha.com&asset_id=35288
Net unit make sure it as least 5.1 and you can get Dolby Atmos on a few select models but whatever you get make sure you can pass you video signal thru with HDMI cables or component at the least, a couple of years ago I went from the Yamaha R-V1300 to their RX-A3020 and couldn't be happier, the new one which is the Yamaha RX-A3040 has Dolby Atmos but whatever you get and you are only running it at Dolby 5.1 at least each speaker will be discreet unlike in the Dolby Pro Logic mode you will be running, and 5.1 means 3 speakers in the front and 2 in the back or on the rear sides, so that is your 5 the .1 refers to the subwoofer because it get a one tenth of the signal the rest of the speakers can do so 6.1 means 3 in the front and 3 in the bab plus the .1 subwoofer. My system will do 11.2 but I will be just happy with 7.2 but until I move into a house I run it at 5.1. godd luck and feel free to hit me up with any questions...

How to troubleshoot remote controll


Most Yamaha receivers have a remote ID so if you have more than one Yamaha you can control one without bothering the other, do you still have your owners manual? If not have you tried the people at Yamaha they are very helpful with a problem like this but for an example I have my Remote ID set at ID1 because I do have 2 Yamaha receivers the RX-V1300 and the RX-A3020, see if you can find the section in your manual that talks about remote IDs and let me know if that fixes the problem and you can always goto http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio-visual/ but that is the site for the United States they do have sites for many countries at http://www.yamaha.com/

The sound level drops


Try turning off Dynamic range controls and any other setting that manages volume levels. My Yamaha RX-A3020 had a similar issue.

Fuse rx 570 pioneer stereo


Sounds like you have a much bigger problem than just a fuse. Popping sound and burning smell means something much more serious.

Just stopped working.Doesn't power up you can smell that burned smell.When you push the power button you can hear a little fizzle noise.


This isn't something we can help you with. Keep a fire extinguisher handy if you want to keep messing around with it. It needs hands- and eyes-on by a pro.
