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 :-)

What is the value of Marantz SR-3100 reciever?

Interesting question...

Model: SR3100 Manufacturer: Marantz America, Inc. Type: Receiver - Audio Year: 1981-1982
You could probably look on eBay and get a good idea of the ASKING PRICES... (means nothing)...
$699 TO $1700...

(but you could get really old waiting for a sale)

Depending on the desirability... a Pawn Shop would give you a horrible estimate..that you allow you to pocket the money... and them to take the risk (loss or profit).

What the ACTUAL VALUE is...
depends entirely on what the DICTATES.

I have a 42 inch Vizio tv, 7 years old. The menu button will not work although other buttons, like volume button does. Why would menu button not work?

I have a similar issue with my 10 year Vizio 42", it is the infrared receiver in the TV that is the problem (tried other remotes).

Marantz pm7200 makes loud crackles and cuts out for 1st 30mins and then is ok!

One common explanation is the capacitors fail after a number of years. The lineage of these electrolytic caps usually last about 10 years or so with regular operation.

This is a disappointment and many PC's, top of the line receivers such as yours 10-15 years old are plagued with these failing capacitors.

Suggest if you are DIY replace all electrolytic. If not look for a electronics repair local and get an estimate.

the repair manuals are available.

The capacitors does not have to leak to fail. Also check for open/cracked solder joints around the power supply and power amps.

I have repaired several PC's and receivers for these defects with only an inspection lamp and multi-meter.

Purchasing a used replacement of the same age will likely require similar repair. Some older units are more reliable?

Good solder skills are critical and if you DIY practice on scrap boards before attempting.
hope this helps?

Hi There, I have a Marantz SR7005 Receiver and Bose 901 Series VI speakers with the Bose equalizer. I'm struggling to figure out the best way to connect the Bose equalizer/speakers to the SR7005. ...

It sounds like you've read one of my many posts on 901 deployment in the AV world.

Functionally, what is the difference between one amp with 'x' channels or 'x' mono amps? Nothing. Pre-outs don't know or care what else an external amp does.

According to this link those amps are 2- and 5-channel, respectively.

There was a time when I had two bridged-mono Carver Cube atmps (at a real 400 watts) pushing one 901 each but that was big time overkill.

I now use a Carver AV-406 (functionally the same as your MM7055) with the 901 EQ in between the AV Receiver's front pre-outs and two 110-watt channels. Other channels on the AV-406 pull subwoofer and surround back duties. My AVR directly powers only the center and surround speakers.

The MM7025 would work for you.
