Question about Yamaha RX-V2200 Receiver
I purchased a Yamaha RV-V2200 receiver in 2001 and it's worked well for almost 8 years, but now it's losing settings. In Florida we receive a lot of lightning and associated power problems, so I use a wall switch to disconnect power from my AV equipment when I'm not using it. The manual states that settings may be lost if disconnected for more than one week. Now it loses settings in less than 24 hours.
Does anyone know if this memory is powered from an easily replaceable battery or if it would require soldering in a new battery or capacitor?
It could be a battery, a bit like the type you get in watches. But I reckon it's a memory retention capacitor that has failed. These are small looking things that look like electrolytic capacitors that have been squashed from above. They appear to have a working voltage of around 5.5 volts too. I am enclosing a picture of one, though it could vary in style. You might find it near the main display of the unit.

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 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. 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 dont 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

Get another receiver! I had the same problem and had the power supply replaced $250 and after 3 months it started doing the same thing. I just purchased a Pinoeer Elite VSX 90TXV.

The unit is in protect mode. There is a problem with the last stage of the amplifier section and the unit shuts down to prevent further damage. The most common cause if this is shorted output transistors. If you are comfortable with soldering, you should be able to repair this. Check the transistors attached to the heatsink for a shorted condition. Replace them in pairs.
Keep us posted.

Please check with the manual of your receiver whether it is capable of running 4 ohm speakers.
if yes, then please go ahead, you will not loose any Sound quality. Sound quality will depend a lot on the performace of the speaker as well as the frequency range it can deliver.
If no, please do not connect. Though, you might be able to play and listen to the music, but it will overload your receiver!!
If you are not sure, please let me know the brand and model of your receiver and I can check for you.
Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!
