Question about Yamaha RX-V596 Receiver
I have had this Yamaha RX-V596 for a few years and it has worked flawlessly. Suddenly today the input selector on the front panel is stuck on "V-AUX" position and the display shows "External Decoder" Turning the input selector knob does not change the setting or the display. The knob spins but the setting still remains at V-Aux and the display shows External Decoder. So, I'm not able to listen to any of the inputs - TV, DVD player, CD player, tuner etc. Please help. Thanks Dush
Sounds like the processor has locked up in the unit. Try powering it right down from the wall socket for a day to reset, and then retry operation. If that does not work, leave it disconnected for about 10 days to erase backup memory completely and then try again. Good luck. Don't forget to give me a "FixYa" rating if this works. If it doesn't, get back to me in here and we can talk more about it.

Rotate the INPUT selector on the front panel
(or set the operation mode selector to AMP
and then press one of the input selector
buttons on the remote control) to select the
desired input source.
