Question about Yamaha HTR-5790 Receiver

Powers on for just 5 seconds then off

With the use of remote or Panel button, it goes on for 5 seconds and then off. Took off the top and noticed that during the short on cycle, the fan does not come on. Unit has worked great for 2 years, now this problem. Any suggestions.

Re: Powers on for just 5 seconds then off

Took my Yamaha HTR 5790 to a repair shop for an estimate to repair. Cost me $50 for estimate to be applied to repair. It needed two circuit boards replaced at a cost of $390.00.


SOLUTION... they kept my $50 and I bought a new AV Receiver that WAS NOT a Yamaha.

My Yamaha RX-V661 powers on when I hit the power switch. After two seconds it goes to stand by.

try holding the 'straight' and 'audio select' buttons and press power. What does it say on the front panel? Should say some kind of protect: I, DC, PS. This will help narrow down where your problem is.

Harman Kardon AVR 350, Unit powers off into standby mode after a few seconds. Removed all connections and wires, problem persists. Weirdly enough, if I keep pressing the source button, the unit stays on....

It needs to be serviced. Bad caps, resistors, & possibly a transistor or two. Not an unbearable repair, but you can count on it being 100-175 depending on the shop. You followed all the troubleshooting you could without opening the unit.

How can I get my onkyo remote control (RC-693M) to control my Sony LCD tv?

Manual says: 1. While holding down the REMOTE MODE button for the mode in which you want to use the command, press the [ON] button. *** Hold both buttons down for 3-4 seconds *** 2. Press the button you want to learn the new command 3. Point the remote controllers at each other, about 2-6 inches apart, and then press and hold the button whose command you want to learn until the Remote indicator flashes. *** Hold them level with each other, 2-3 inches apart, and don't move them at ALL while you press the button on the old remote *** 4. To learn more commands, repeat steps 2 and 3. Press any REMOTE MODE button when you've finished. *** If the command was learned correctly, the remote indicator will flash *SLOWLY* twice - about a 1 second blink, and the red light will remain on. If the command was NOT learned correctly, it will blink twice *QUICKLY* - about .5 seconds, and the red light will go off. *** If the red light stays on, you're golden - keep going until you get to a button that flashes red quick and the light goes off. Some of the buttons I programmed took 6-7 tries in exactly the same position to learn.

If you are not pressing the power button on the remote that may be the problem

How do you unlock an ipod touch, I think I did this accidentally. the slider does not work

You might just want to try to force it to shut down by holding the sleep wake button on the top of the iPod for about 5 seconds. After it powers down, wait about 5 seconds, then hit the power button on top for about 1 second to turn it back on. After it powers up all the way you should be able to unlock your iPod.
Hope that helps!

After powering up the display reads, "No Disc" and unit powers itself off after about 10 seconds.

Please update this with the make and model. With that info, I should be able to figure out what is happening. In generic terms, the unit performs some system checks when powered up. It seems that a problem is found that is causing the system to shut itself down. Any details about the unit and what you hear or see in addition to what you have already posted would be helpful as well.

Hope to hear from you soon.
