    my yamaha receiver (htr-5840) does not stay on after i power it on,
    the receiver kept telling me to check the speaker wires which i did and all was fine.
    there was a slight burnt smell after 3 attempts powering it on. can someone tell me if it might be a fuse or maybe a curcuit board that i might be able to change myself. thanks

Sounds like the power board has burnt out That would have to be replaced. If your mechanically inclined you would be able to do yourself otherwise should be able to get it serviced at a local shop

John,
Yamaha receiver got problem in amplifier output section and needs few transistor and resistors replacement.
I would suggest to take it to local repair shop and ask an estimate.

You need to have basic electronics knowledge, experience of receiver repair, tools to repair this kind of units, related service manual and good soldering skills if you want to fix it by yourself.

Do you have pets?
I suggest unplugging it and if it is out of warrantee, open the case and using air, like from Radio Shack, blow it out, get all dust from it and just maybe, it will work fine. Its not likely but always possible.

Burning smell is indicative of a shorted wire and melted wire casing.
Probably due to a faulty relay in the turn-on circuit.
You will not be able to "see" this damage.
Test of the relay and replacement if necessary is your fix.

Otherwise look for ruptured capacitors or singed spots on the circuit board itself, or power supply board.

Please note - repair of solid state electronics can be lethal if capacitors are not discharged properly before repairs are attempted. If you are not competent in electronic repair - take it to your local repairman with the experience to not be injured.

The troubleshooting and repair should be less than $60 USD.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Hi!
A component inside has burnt inside, if you have expertise to repair electronic devices then check for the components on the circuit board, if you find any component burnt or desoldered then replace it.
Also, check that no wires inside the reciver are short.
Please ask for further clarifications.
Thanks Rylee

    The smoke/burning smell can be due to reasons like burning of components like capacitors or due to a bad transformer.
    If you have opened the receiver, you will be able to figure out the faulty component. Please be very careful while examining the receiver internally. 


    Please ask for further clarification.


    Thanks

Its the circuit board for sure having this problem.just take a multimeter and locate the faulty part/component on the board.but as you said its due to you get burning smell as you will open the unit the faulty will be seen on the board as it will be burned or slightlt bulged from its top the faulty component.
just get that faulty capacitor from local electronics storte and replace it with new.
if you r non technical in this jobs do not try a repair person is advisable.and do not on the unit till it gets repaired to avoid further damage.

The burn smell is not a good thing. the capacitors on the power board have malfunctioned, causing this burn out. replacing the power board will fix this issue.

Location of fuse in yamaha htr 5840 receiver


This is old, but unplug the unit, remove the cover and check the vertical power board where the plug wire enters. There are two fuses on this board, both are 8A125V. These are the only fuses in the unit.

Fuse has not blown but unit will not turn on? yamaha htr-5840


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 'nekkid'. 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.

No power - possible cause was the shorting of one of the speaker leads


In which case the fuses in the power supply will have blown! You may have to replace the output devices for the channel(s) you shorted out, which will be found on the heatsink.

Yamaha receiver model HTR-5840 will not switch on.Fuse is o.k.


By fuse OK you do mean the one inside it? If so check the power switch, then check the power transformer.

Yamaha HTR_5990


unplug everything that is pluged into the reciever. plug the power cord into an outlet with nothing else pluged into it and try it again. if your electronically experienced you could try to ground it and carefully try it again. give the unit a smell, does it smell a little burnt? if you have a screw driver and a little trust in yourself tale the cover off and look at the board for visual burn marks there should be fuses inside the unit, you could check those out. If you dont see anything visually wrong and it is still not powering it would be a good idea to bring it in to an electronics repair shop and they could diagnose the problem. With the use of a volt ohm meter it would not take long.
