Question about Yamaha RX-V800 Receiver

Open Question

I have an old but "pretty" Yamaha CR-620 receiver that died abruptly 10 years ago. I dug it out the other day and have removed the outer shell. I've got power light, signal strength on meter but no sound. Others with similar symptoms have been steered to examine protection circuit and saying that speaker relay not closing? Should I be checking power output transistors as the next step? I'm pretty much a rookie though I used to built heathkits so I do have some equipment. Thanks Bob in Golden Valley

    You would hear the relay click after a short delay once power was applied. No click, no speakers. Protection means heat, shorts or opens.



    I'd recommend getting a better high level feel for what is and isn't working before doing surgery. I have fixed things til they were broke in my time.



    Try using the FM tuner as a signal source. Make sure it has something to send to the speakers. If you have an external device that takes Line Level like a tape deck you can trace the presence of a program within the receiver by using its record meters.



    Don't let the old Tape Monitor fool you, either.

The relay contacts are most likely bad in the relay and will most likely happen again. If you know how to solder, take out the relay and look up the numbers on the internet and see what you can find. If not, try to find where the manufactuer is located and call them to see where you can get a new relay. Good Luck

I JUST EXPERIENCED THE SAME SITUATION HERE IS THE SOULTION YAMAHA SENT ME TO RESET THE SYSTEM HTR-5990 YAMAHA HTR-5990 FACTORY PRESET PROCEDURES All models require the STANDBY/ON button to be turned OFF to start the reset process. NOTE: The remote control cannot be used during the reset procedure. All necessary buttons to complete the reset process are located on the front panel of the receiver. This procedure is not intended to correct intermittent shut-off symptoms or problems MODEL: HTR-5990 (U.S.A. model/s) (BEFORE YOU CONTINUE, PLEASE READ THE ABOVE NOTES!) 1. Before you start this procedure, locate the MASTER ON/OFF button and the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button on the Front Panel of the unit. 2. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR RECEIVER’S MASTER ON/OFF HAS BEEN TURNED OFF. 3. With the Right Hand, press and hold the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button. With the Left Hand, press the MASTER ON/OFF button and HOLD both buttons for no more than “3” SECONDS, AT THE SAME TIME. SP IMP. * 8 MIN. will appear on the display, which indicates you are in the Diagnostics Mode. 4. Rotate the PROGRAM KNOB to the right (ONCE) until the display reads PRESET *CANCEL. 5. Press the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button (ONCE) and the display will change to PRESET RESET. 6. Turn the unit off by pressing the MASTER ON/OFF button. 7. Wait 5 seconds, then turn the unit on by pressing the MASTER ON/OFF button. You have now reset your component to the factory settings. NOTE: Yamaha receivers don’t have to be reset during normal operation. It is not recommended that you reset the receiver unless a setting has been changed that you are not aware of, or the receiver is not operating properly. The reset procedure will clear an incorrect setting that might be causing abnormal operation. GOOD LUCK

If the standby voltage exists, the next step is to see whether or not the clock is working. Find the main micro chip. There should be a 3 legged crystal close by. You should see this oscillate (use a scope). No oscillation = no micro control = no turn on. It is possible that the micro is bad or the crysal is bad. Also, check to be sure that the output transistors are not shorted. It is also possible that these are preventing the system from turning on.

Make sure your audio output on your PS3 is configured properly. You have the ability to chose which port the audio is coming out of.
The 6050 does NOT process audio signals coming in on the HDMI port. The amp is weak, I had one. With the 6050 you will have to use the AV multi coming out of the PS3 and use the special cable that came with the PS3 to convert that signal to the RCA and connect that to the 6050.

Bad DSP chip. The only other possibility is if you have the "Direct" on. On the front of the receiver it's a small button. Also make sure your "Speaker Select" A/B is "on" You will see it on the display, it's also a small button on the front of the receiver. If all this is correct and you still have no audio, it's a bad DSP chip. Not worth repair, it's 400-500 repair. Not very common in a Yamaha RX-V series, but I have seen it. I'm a Yamaha Dealer. If you need further help, post a comment and I will be glad to help you further.

Hello, W/D here.
Check the pinhole vent in the fuel filler cap. As fuel is removed when the engine is running, air is pulled into the tank. If the vent is blocked, a vacuum is formed, and fuel cannot flow. After a period of down time, air infiltrates back into the tank, and the engine can be re-started. You can test this out just by cracking the cap open after starting the engine, just enough to allow air to get into the tank.
Best regards, --W/D--

I have a 70's era Yamaha Natural Sound Stereo Receiver CR-620. It just recently stopped working. It turns on, but doesn't transit sound. Can it be fixed or is it terminal?


If there is no audible physical click from the speaker output relay, after about 10 to 20 seconds, there is an electronic fault in one or both amplifier circuits, which will require repair. If you like the sound of this unit enough to pay maybe $50 give or take, get it repaired. Otherwise, you can pick a similar unit up at a thrift shop for a few dollars.

Microwave suddenly died in the middle of cooking


The only 2 user replacable parts in a microwave are the lightbulb,
and the 20 amp ceramic fuse. if you have checked the power cord outlet it's pluged into and both are fine. It's possabbe the fuse behind the controls is bad. Theese fuses look the old car fuses only
not made of glass they use white ceramic. A philips screwdriver will normally remove the outer shell of the microwave make shure it's not plugged in! After removing the outer shell look behind the controls on one of the power lines there will be a snap in fuse the above mentioned removal is easy it will pop right out replacment is oppsite of removal. If the fuse is bad replacing it cost about $3
warning don't mess with any thing else if you do this!!! microwaves contain radioactive meteral If you don't think you can do it safely take it to a pro or buy a new one
Hope This Helps gota lot of good years out of microwaves by changing those fuses. Most people just throw them away microwaves that is
If this helps ya
please leave feedback

Rx v2095 receiver - No sound from either front main speaker


I have had similar problems on a Denon. I suspect your DSP needs repaired and/or replaced. Need to contact authorized Yamaha repair shop or a competent local repair facility. I have a Yamaha RX-V2092 which is similarly designed. I have had it for 10 years. Hope this helps.

It keeps goin to protectin mode


Well I have an Onyyo TS SV515 Pro II receiver that is quite a few years old. I have lived in several houses and have moved it with me. For as long as I can remember it has been going into 'protect mode' when I turned it over 6 on the volume knob. I have a subwoofer and 4 infinite speakers and a yamaha center channel speaker.
I got on the internet the today to see if I could figure out why it did this. One person suggested cutting my speaker wires and resplicing it making sure no hanging wires where there.
I had been using the same speaker wire since I puchased it (10 yrs ago). I feel pretty stupid, cause I just did the wires to my front 2 Infinite speakers and WaLa...It works flawlessly. I can now turn up my receiver...after 10 years of dealing with no 'full' volume.
*****Check those speaker connection, they are the key*****
