Question about Yamaha RX-V1400 Receiver

Yamaha RX-V1400 receiver powers off, in case it becomes louder

I have a Yamaha RX-V1400 receiver. I run the Genesis 300 Watt speakers as front speakers with it. When I crank up the volume to about +2db, the receiver powers off.
Any ideas of what might cause this?
Don´t come with ideas like check the wires because I checked them 1000 times

Hey, yeah that can be frustrating.

When you turn it up do you hear the relay or a clicking sound, then you turn it on and it comes back below the +2db?

Try unplugging All the speaker wires from the unit. Turn on the unit and listen for the click.
after the click, turn it up past the 2+ db mark and see if you hear it click or shut down. If it did not click off, then suspect a shorted crossover on one of your speakers.
2nd test is to plug in One speaker, and test it at high volume, it will not harm it. If it shuts off disconnect that speaker and try another. Only one at a time.
If it works at high volume, you need to isolate one of your speakers and i bet it has a shorted crossover that has been cooked. P.S. If one is bad, suspect they will fail at a later date.
If they all fail, use a friends speaker and try it before sending it to a repair shop.

P.S. i found one on ebay i think you can get for under $100 bucks in the box.

Why is the rx v475 sending more power to one speaker than the other? It is about half power.


Is the channel distorted, or just plain low? If you require more assistance, or would like to inquire about repairing your Yamaha, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.

I want to hook two speakers on each terminal (L/R).


The correct way would be to hook only one speaker to the powered outputs and use PRE-OUT outputs to connect separate amplifier (or active speakers).

For 2 speakers to work connected to the same powered output of receiver, their impedance would need to be high enough. Yamaha receivers officially support impedance >= 4 ohm for front speakers. If you would connect 2 different 8 ohm speakers, the combined impedance could be theoreticcaly 4 ohm, but that depends on many parameters. On low volumes it should work, but could overload the receiver if used for louder volumes.

Also note that the impedance is a function of frequency (specific to every speaker), so for different frequencies the power from receiver would be devided differently between the speakers and the sound would not be good.

Yamaha rx-v1400 internal issue. what do we do next?


It will need to go to service. It's usually 5 caps and a couple transistors that go bad.
Usually from a power surge or brown out. depending on where you are located will
determine where to send it. http://usa.yamaha.com/dealers/service_locator/index.html
enter your zip code and you will be directed to the nearest Authorized Yamaha Service Center. The average cost for this repair is between $200-250. Sorry for the bad news!
Excellent receiver!

First things first... Disconnect all speakers from the receiver and then turn it on. If it still shuts off, there is an internal issue, if it stays on, its an external issue. Post a reply with your results and I can help you with great detail if needed. Hope this helps.

Yamaha rx-365 reciever not showing all speakers


I,m not familiar with the Yamaha but most receivers are set up the same way. In your setup menu are the speakers marked on in the display?. Your DVR needs to be transmitting in 5.1 to start with. If this is the case then make sure you select the correct audio function on the receiver.

With my RX-V663 can I use presence speakers less than 8 ohms?


Basically you can use any speaker as long as you use the volume button wisely. Damage will only occur if you raise the volume level to the extremes. Bigger speakers should be no problem, if you want bi-amping, your speakers should support that as well.

Comcast remote


The volume keys should be working by default, but you may have volume punch through turned on (meaning the remote is sending signals for TV or CABLE volume function no matter what mode you are actually on). To unlock volume control for AUX mode, do the following:
1. Press and release AUX
2. Press and hold SETUP until the remote blinks twice
3. Type 993
4. Press and release VOL-
The remote should blink four times to confirm unlock.
