Question about Yamaha RX-V490 Receiver

1 Answer

Yamaha RX-V490 comes on, goes off

I've had this piece for about 7 years or so, and have never had a problem, although it is similar to a problem I had with a Marantz receiver I used to have. I hit the power button, it makes a pop and immediately turns off. Is this something I can fix or do I need to take it somewhere? Thanks

    Yamaha RX-V490 5.1 Channels Receiver turns itself off. I have never made any modification to it and now when it is turned on waits for a few seconds then clicks off! Very annoying! The problem is so bad that I have to buy Yamaha Rxv 1800 last week. Can anyone out there help me solve this problem.

More than likely its going into protect mode to keep from blowing your speakers. That pop noise is DC getting to your speakers before it shuts off i would recommend checking for DC voltage at the outputs first. If your not electronically inclined take it to a shop. Let us know :-)

Smoke started to come out of top of RX-V490 receiver, and now sounds a little more distorted than usual. Is the receiver salvagable, I know I triggered the protection circuit, but will it keep happening? I...


It all depends how much the amplifier circuit was damaged and how much you now push the system. It could be worth opening the unit and checking for any obvious damaged to components before you go any further.

As you've stated you want to run 4 speakers I take it you're not using the full 5.1 System.

If this is the case then the best/easiest option for running 2 sets of speakers is to get 2 Pairs of 4 Ohm Speakers and just connect them in Parallel to the Front Output which is rated at 70W + 70W (8Ohms).

If you need any further assistance of clarification just ask.


Please leave feedback

No, but you could still access the audio directly from the iPod...

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to an amp or receiver. Get a cable like the one described here:

My RX-V490 Amp. has no audio from Centre speaker.


Is your center mode set to "Phantom" instead of "Normal" or "Wide"? That would split the mono Center channel program and mix it equally with the programs for both front speakers so your brain would believe it's in the center.

Monitor problem


I don't see any OSD in the RX-V490 owner's manual. This unit only passes video through from a video source, like a VCR.

Yamaha RX V490 Turning itself Off


The amp is in protect mode which means that the output section has a problem. With nothing connected, there are defective parts inside the unit. This type of problem is not likely to have been caused by any shipping damage. I would guess that the output transistors are shorted.
