Question about Yamaha RX-V2600 Receiver
I have a Yamaha RX-V2400 that shuts down on itself within 5 seconds of
turning it on. The problem can last from a day to a few weeks, then I
won't have a problem for a few weeks - then the problem repeats itself.
I brought it in for service a year or so ago and when I got it back had no problems for a few months then it all started again.
Do I try service again elsewhere...or scrap a not so cheap receiver?
When it shuts off, does it display anything on the front like "ck speakers" you could have a shorted wire or bad speaker. Sounds more likely than a bad receiver. Yamaha is pretty bulletproof in "self preservation" circuitry! about the only thing that takes them out is lightning and major power surges. I have been selling and installing Yamaha receivers since 1995 and have only ever seen one with a problem that was unrelated to power. and I've done hundreds. If your not using HDMI, and the Video portion of the receiver, I would definately keep the unit $ 1500.00 is no cheap receiver. Try disconnecting the speakers, then turn on the unit with a source connected like cable/sat/fios on then crank the vol and let it set, if it cuts out, yes you've got a problem internally, however, I would stronly suggest metering all of the speakers and wires for shorts. There is an internal fuse as well right near the power cord, you have to pop the top to get to it, If you have a multimeter check the fuse with resistance tone. If you get tone, you have a good fuse if not If you need to replace it. They can be found at Radio Shack etc. If the fuse is OK, chances are you've got bad transistor(s) and needs to go to service. Repair should be under 200, well worth it. If you have further questions, post a comment and I will get back to you ASAP. Hope this helps
