Question about Yahoo YHT-630 System

1 Answer

Volume Does what It wants

I have a similar stereo except mine's a YHT-400. Picture here Whenever I turn the volume up past 25 or so out of 40, it'll turn itself up or down, sometimes it turns itself up faster than you can possibly imgagine, the numbers just roll up to MAX (40) and then it gets all distorted and starts blowing the speakers. It's really annoying because I can't blast music in a controlled way. I think it might have something to do with the amount of power to the Subs considering I have 2 hooked up and the heavy bass songs seem to be what set off the volume changes.

Re: Volume Does what It wants

My Yahoo YHT-400 does something similar, only it won't do it right away, it has to start getting hot first, then if I have the volume set at 25 or higher, it will slowly start turning itself up louder until it either maxes out, or I intervene. Either way, it's really annoying, even though I'm only using it as an amplifier for my computer. I just figured it was doing it where it's second-hand and had tons of dust inside caked in and around the fans until I cleaned it out. But when on AUX/TV, one would think the Bit Rate Transfer gauge would remain at 00, but it jumps up and down constantly, whether there's any audio being put through it or not.

Yht 299

sounds like your speakers might not match your receiver. check the back of your speakers for the ohms eg 4 , 6 ,8 impedance.
you have to match the specs of the receiver otherwise it cuts out.

Recommended speaker level settings

actually this is to your listening preference. Don't adjust the volume to where the sound starts breaking up.

Sound and picture

Check that you have connected the component video lead to the correct sockets in both the TV and the HTS9800W.

There are two sets of Phono (cinch) connectors, which are grouped together.

Red / Green / Blue - Component connectors - video only

Red / White / Yellow - Stereo audio and composite video connectors - audio and vide

If you have inadvertently connected the red audio connector to the red component input on the TV, it would cause similar symptoms as you describe.

No sound from the reciever

Plug in your headphone, if you hear music then it could be the speaker's fuse blown up, or the speaker's circuit breaker shut down. If nothing sound then possibly the strong static has burned down the audio/receiver's circuitry section.

Yahoo YHT 630 problem

This is the way speakers sound on most theatre systems. It just depends on how much power is in the system itself. The more power the better the sound. If you have a button on your remote that has the word 'LEVEL' on it, press this and you can change the power that goes to each speaker.
