Question about Yamaha RX-495 2 Channels Receiver
I received this Yamaha Receiver from my mother's estate; which did not carry instructions. Could you please help? Case-in-Point: I always "light up" first the AUX on the Yamaha screen(that connects to the DVR)but nothing comes from the speakers. Am I not pushing Tape 1 or something? If you could e-mail what the main commands are and their adjacent buttons for other/different commands, I will appreciate you. Thank you for your time, Lisa S Kelly

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 RECEIVERS 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.

The reset procedure will clear an incorrect setting that might be causing abnormal operation. GOOD LUCK

be more specific!...how is the tv hooked up? hdmi, component, straight to the tv, or into the amp then tv?....what audio out? optical, digital? also what are you trying to view? local programming? cable/sat? dvd? your best bet is to ignore video on the amp and go straight to tv. can't help u more until i have more specifics.

Hey, yeah that can be frustrating.
When you turn it up do you hear the relay or a clicking sound, then you turn it on and it comes back below the +2db?
Try unplugging All the speaker wires from the unit. Turn on the unit and listen for the click.
after the click, turn it up past the 2+ db mark and see if you hear it click or shut down. If it did not click off, then suspect a shorted crossover on one of your speakers.
2nd test is to plug in One speaker, and test it at high volume, it will not harm it. If it shuts off disconnect that speaker and try another. Only one at a time.
If it works at high volume, you need to isolate one of your speakers and i bet it has a shorted crossover that has been cooked. P.S. If one is bad, suspect they will fail at a later date.
If they all fail, use a friends speaker and try it before sending it to a repair shop.
P.S. i found one on ebay i think you can get for under $100 bucks in the box.
