Question about Yamaha RX-V730 Receiver

Yamaha Rx-v730 - only hear "click" when try to turn it on

I just came home from vacation and appearently we had some type of power spike while I was gone. My Yamaha was plugged into a power conditioner and all the other components (TV, Blu-Ray, Cable-DVR) seem fine but my Yamaha, which is getting power, only "clicks" when I press the Power button.

Is there a replaceable fuse on this unit? Sorry, but for the life of me I can't seem to find it and the owners manual doesn't even mention the word "fuse" much less help.

What are my options besides having someone look at it ($) or buy a replacement ($$)?

Thanks!

    After reading a couple of other postings, it sounds like the fuse for this unit is INSIDE. I'll try lookin at that but wondered if the fuse (assuming I find it) is blown, where can I get a replacement? Is it something that Radio Shack would have or will I have to get it from Yamaha?

    I have the same problem. I checked the fuse and it's ok. It still just clicks and doesn't turn on. By the way the fuse is inside next to the power cord. It takes 8 screws to take the shroud off.

That may due to a bad power transistor, huge current flows when it's powered up, protection circuit kicks in and switch off the unit. Get to repair shop for check up and replacement.

If you have any electronics experience you should check the diodes or the bridge rectifier in the power circuit. Look for burned components or bulged capacitors.!!!Always unplug the unit and wait a few minutes before attempting any procedure!! I have found that capacitors usually fail due to voltage spikes which can happen when power is reinstated after an outage. Always use surge protectors on electronic devices. They have a component called an MOV that will absorb voltage spikes and save your equipment.

HOW TO PROTECT YOUR ELECTRONIC GOODS AGAINST POWER SURGES


I have only been giving advice on FIXYA for a very short while but have noticed that an awful lot of the people who relate their product issues , particularly complain about faults developing after power cuts / outages. It is apparent, from a description of the complaints, that damage is being caused by outages that may be a result of power surges blowing electricity sub stations.
There are a lot of damaged audio devices / tvs being affected. As such I advise you TO BUY SURGE PROTECTORS for all you valuable devices.
I have them around the house and although we only get an occasional power cut here in the UK I know that at times they have saved my equipment fron power spikes. The small cost is justified in the long run.

Yamaha r-v98 turns on and immediately goes off. I haven't changed anything lately. It was playing then went off. Now it will not turn on for more than a few seconds.


Disconnect all speakers at the receiver then turn it back on, if it stays on, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot further. If it still shuts off, it sufferred a power spike and needs to be serviced. They will replace 5-6 caps and 2 or three other parts, roughly 250 or so. Hope this helps

The same problem even without wires on, "check sp wires" and turns off, or doesnt turning on.. ...yamaha sucks..


Your unit took a power spike or a brown out; big dip in power then a surge. Yamaha's receivers are pretty solid when it comes to power supply's! it takes alot to zap em! If that's the case, it's about a 275 dollar repair. They will replace main transistors and caps. If you don't have a serious Home Theater Surge/Conditioner (not a power strip) get one! any receiver with today's spec's will be toast!. If you need some guidance on receiver's or surge, post a comment and I can help you out. Sorry for the bad luck!

No sound from main left and right speakers


no, the yamaha system would shut down if the amplifiers had a problem. I would check the bose system, try directly hooking the speakers to the mains in stead of thru the bose system if you can. the easy way to check the amps is to plug in a set of head phone in they are directly tied to the mains.
