Re: RXV1200 A/V receiver

Please check your speaker cabling first for possible short connections. if all ok, then remove the speakers (all) and try to turn on the unit. If still doing the same thing then you have busted one of your amplifier. it can be any of the amplifiers (main center surround etc...

Any way to reset after "protection circuitry" is tripped three times on RX-V675?

Try pressing and holding the 'tone control' and 'info' buttons, then press power. This should unlock the protection lock. the lock is there so that the unit cannot be repeatedly turned on when there is a problem that could cause permanent damage to the circuitry.

I have a Denon AVR1603, recently I plugged computer in AUX connections at rear (not loud) and it kept tripping out. Eventually it tripped and now the the on/standby light fashes but nothing else happens....

The LED flash indicates that unit goes into protection. Check the power transistors, the 0.22 ohm or 0.47 resistors in the output of the transistors.

Our unit turned off suddenly one day, and now you

If it trips almost instantly then you have a serious power supply rail problem rather than just a channel down. You need a Yamaha specialist to look at it, there aren't any fuses for that.

Unit''trips'' off shortly after powering up

Disconnect ALL of the speaker wires from the back.  Turn it on again, if it still trips, then the unit needs to be repaired.  If it does not trip with no speaker wires connected, turn it back off, connect 1 speaker at a time and turn it on, when it does trip, that speaker that you just put on has a short somewhere, it could the be the wire or in the speaker.

Yamaha rx-v661 unsolved speaker wiring error

1. Try running the auto setup without the sub. ( is it a powered sub {the sub has its own amp on the back} or is a NON powered sub that is driven off the speaker jacks of the Yamaha receiver. )

If the sub is powered, and connected to the Amp via the RCA cable from the " sub out " jack, chances are you either have a defective sub or a gound loop.

Good luck...Rob

Your drawing to many watts from the unit and its shutting down. Make sure the -/+ are set properly for the speakers. Also the power amp inside the unit could be bad and the relay trips off. Plug straight into the wall and don't go through a powerstrip. Is anything else connected to the receiver?

Onkyo SV828THX Power on

There is or seems to be a bad or cold solder connection on that Printed circuit board that is going to need to be resoldered or it can cause more damage to the unit. And on this model, the fan will start at power up but shut down untill the output section heat sinks get hot.
