    Hi, Thanks for the reply. I have an fm antenna which has a F coaxial end on it. I need to attach this coaxial end to my reciever. I need an adapter. Owners manual doe snot say which kind. Originally one came with receiver but I just bought this used and there is no adapter with it. I am not sure what kind of plug is on the back of this feciever. Tried a F female to RCA male and that does nto work. Not very well versed in this. But need a F female to ????? male. Hope this is plain enough. have checked every site i can find on yamaha receivers and can't find it. thanks

    Hi, I have an indoor fm antenna that has coax attached to it. The plug on back of my receiver is not for F connector, Have to have adapter. The coaxial end does not fit on it. has to have an adapter. I thought maybe it was a rca plug, so bought a F female to RCA male, nope it is not an RCA plug. I have ther manual. it does not say what the adapter is. i DO NOT NEED 75/300 OHM ADAPTER, MY END IS ALREADY 300 OHM BUT WON'T FIT RECEIVER PLUG. THANKS Sorry not yelling, caps stuck sorry

    it is an F connector same as your tv's coax. Now just srew on a cable and splice out the other end or if you are good just slpice it up and expose the center conductor or a better way is that you can get the soler type F connectors at radioshack and just solder a 22 gauge speaker wire (10 - 15 feet long) to the connectors center and ground connections. Now just tear apart the other end for about 3 feet and spread them apart and tear off the jacket for about 1 inch now you have your Y antennae

This is your manual

this is the 300 ohm adapter you need from radio shack and just install some small gauge speaker wire to it. or just splice the one that came with your receiver.

Something is triping internaly and shutting of the reciever

The protection circuitry is tripping, either because it is faulty, or because it is sensing a problem (overheating, excessive DC at the output, loss of a regulated voltage supply, etc...) Sounds like it needs surgery.
