The remote is capable of running other types of devices. It may 'think' it's configured for something other than the receiver, like a CD player. See page 50 in the manual.

To reset the remote to factory, pres AV1, I/O and MASTER VOL all at the same time.

I have the 15-8911 remote; hopefully this helps you for yours.
To scan through all codes to find the correct one, the manual recommends to:
1) Turn on the TV
2) Press m (mute), then Power and hold both until the red light blinks twice
3) Press VOL- (volume down) three times
4) Alternate between Power and CH+ until your TV turns off (you may have to press these keys 50-60 times)
5) When the TV turns off, press m (mute). The red light will blink twice.
The remote is now ready to use.

I can not turn on the receiver with the remote control, turning it off works. What can I do? Please Thank you in advance,

Must have a bad remote control then . Did something spill onto the remote near the power on button? Short of getting a new remote you could try poping thr remote control apart and cleaning it out with a mild detergent. Larry's Electronics

Yamaha rx-v800 turns off

Sounds like your receiver has a cold solder joint on the power board at a transistor or capacitor. Not a major repair, however, it will probably run $100 or so to pull it apart, hunt it down and fix the problem. Not sure of your problem with the DVDR. Do you have a "line conditioning, surge protection" unit? Not a Power strip or low end monster surge. Panamax, APC, Furman, make line conditioning surge units that keep your power steady and will shut down in case of voltage fluctuation in both directions. They cost from 200 to 2000 depending on the equipment you are protecting. It is a necessary component to any system. Hope this helps.

Sony Str-DE945 5.1 not Powering Up all !

It's possible there are several bad solder joints on the front panel PC Board which can cause non responding controls, loss of sound. I repaired mine that way. Try turning it on with remote, see if that works.

Hold the remote up yo a video camera and you will see code flashing from the LED in the remote. If it is dark, the remote is faulty. A common fault is for the ceramic resonator(orange pack) either dry joints(it is a resonator) fractured wires, or just fail with no reason, thus rendering the clock for the main proc. not working. Another common fault is the LED being dry jointed. or the LED faulty. All of these easy to fix. Sometimes the power supply may fail to the detector on the front panel of the amp, The detectors sometimes go. all these things to be checked, but check the remote for infrared light with a camera first. Good Luck, a rating of "FixYa" for these technical tips would help my profile, Cheers

I had the same thing happen. This fixed it...

1. Press master power switch OFF

2. Hold down Speaker A & B buttons simultaneously then press master power switch

Display will flash at 1 second intervals denoting that the microprocessor has reset.

3. Release Speaker A & B buttons

Remote should now work.

Yamaha HTR-5990 Receiver

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

Receiver turns on and off in endless cycle

Its one of Three problems. The main b+ filter is defective, one of the standby power sources have a bad capacitor on the line, or theres a short in the main amp. section. Its probabvly going to cost you more then you would care to invest in a reciver thats around 5 to 6 years old. Its most likly time for you to upgrade to a suround sound dydtem with new fancy lights bells and whistles. Good Luck
