Question about Yamaha Audio Players & Recorders
If it's new, I would take it in to have it serviced. Sounds like something is wrong on the front panel.

Sounds like the processor has locked up in the unit. Try powering it right down from the wall socket for a day to reset, and then retry operation. If that does not work, leave it disconnected for about 10 days to erase backup memory completely and then try again. Good luck. Don't forget to give me a "FixYa" rating if this works. If it doesn't, get back to me in here and we can talk more about it.

Try resetting the amp by leaving it unplugged from the wall overnight, and then fire it up in the morning.

SOURCE: Speaker output
Yes, there are relay type switches associated with those outputs. Your RX-V1 is not dying.
Just plug a pin plug in and out of the dead channel to bump the switch. You will hear the speaker
come on. If it doesn't come on,do the plug jack in an out of the pre out again. It will come on.
You can use the test tone to check all channels and rebalance volume levels. You are making the
pre out connect to its power amp. It seems the problem got better when activating those switches. Most likely a cleaning issue. You can also jump the mains and center, and there is also
a modification to jump all channels. I bought my RX-V1 very cheap because of this and love it.
Of course outboard power amp would solve all, but getting this reciever to connect to it's own
power amp has been thrilling as far as bang for the buck. I do use the front effects also, and like
them. It may seem like a pain, but it is worth it to get those channels going.

I have the same issue. I took the speaker apart and tested with a meter and both the mid and tweater were wide open, in short blow out. Not sure what caused this but the speaker needs to be replaced.
