Question about Yamaha HTR-5730 Receiver
Your Yamaha is going into protection model.
This mostly happens when:
1). There is rise of internal temperature.
2).Core wires of the speakers are touching each other or a core wire is sticking out of the terminal and touching the set's rear panel or the speaker itself has a problem.
3). Speakers with an impedance other than specified are being used.
4). the set is damamged or has bad solder / dry solder connection .
Just check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Rewire if necessary..
Are you using banana plugs for connecting speaker or just directly. Some times even a little tiny frayed wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.
If everything else seems all right and still your receiver shut down then it possible that
1).there are bad connections on the main board that are set in.
This would generally happen if the system is slighly old or have dry solder. This should be a simple repair that will not require parts. If you can solder, you will be able to repair this yourself. I could guide you a bit. If not, then a local service center will change the local labor rate.
2). Some transistors have blown on the output power board:
This will require little bit of more electronic knowledge.
I suggest if your set is still under warranty, then please take it to Yamaha.
Hope you can sort out your problem with the above trouble shooting. Let me know if I can guide you further.
Thanks for using FixYa!
