Hi,
There are only a couple possibilities. One the impedance selector on the rear panel is not fully set to either left or right position. In this case double check make sure that it is either to the left or right fully. Also it is possible that the protection circuitry has been activated, make sure all speaker wire connections on this unit and on all speakers are secure and that the wire for each connection does not touch anything other than its respective connection. The only other possibility is it was exposed to extreme electrical shock or circuits inside the unit have become defective. If none of these solutions work you will have to decide whether you want to repair the unit by sending it in or finding someone near you.

    Like i said if none of that solves it, repair may also be more costly then it would be worth to keep using the unit and you may want to upgrade/replace the unit. Though it is totally up to you whether repair or replacement is the best option for you.
    Thank you,

Maybe the problem is with your speakers. Shorted speakers or speakers that are being over-driven can cause the receiver to shut down and possibly be damaged.

I have a yamaha EF2400IS generator that starts fine, but when i shut it down and try to restart it hot it will not start up again until it cools down. Please help.


If it doesn't start but turns over ok. It may be a problem with the magneto / wiring or spark plugs. It seems as though this unit has no automatic shut down. I would try replacing the spark plugs BPR4ES NGK or equivalent and gap to .030, oil 5/30 or 10/30 will do takes less than 1 quart, & air filter (basic tune-up) if not performed in some time. Yamaha recommends every 20 hours. Then try again. Here is a link to the owner's manual. http://www.poweredgenerators.com/yamaha/manuals/ef2400is.pdf

Look at inside at capacitor and fuse but they seem ok. again once i turn it on, it would automatically shuts off after a second.


When a system shuts down after a few seconds it is the self protect circuit shutting down power to the outputs to prevent (further) damage. It may be caused by frayed speaker wires, bad speaker voice coils, or blown output transistors. First, turn off power and remove all speaker wires from the receiver. Turn it back on and see if the problem remains. If it works OK, inspect each speaker wire at both ends for loose strands and correct these. Then, hook up your speakers one at a time until the problem reappears. That speaker or its' wiring is your problem. For safety's sake. turn the receiver off before connecting each speaker. An accidental short of the output terminals can be disastrous (and expensive).

Does it work without PS3 attached?
When receiver turns off, it is usually due to badly connected/configured speakers. Try powering on the receiver without speakers.

Amp turns of after 2 seconds of turning on


It is going into protection mode, and shutting itself off. You have a short somewhere. I would suggest taking it to an authorized service center for assistance. This is not easy to diagnose, as it could be anything causing the short.

Try disconnecting everything from the unit, including the speakers, and turning on again. This will just confirm that the problem is the amp, and nothing external. Also, try connecting it to a different power supply/socket.

Hey there! Nice receiver :0)
Sorry about your troubles. I've been where you are with an Rx-V2600. Would turn on and after a few seconds click off. I thought maybe it was bad wiring but even completely disconnected it would still do it.
I took it to a shop and I was told it was a bad channel. Luckily I mentioned I had a Denon receiver that had stopped working and he said he would take that as payment.
He fixed the Yamaha and it's been working for years.
If you search the internet you should find a local authorized Yamaha repair center. I would take it there. They marked charge like a $30-$50 fee to look at it but usually they apply that towards the repair.

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.
