Question about Yamaha RX-V2600 Receiver

1 Answer

Yamaha RX V2400 keeps shutting off

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

I have found there are capacitors failing through the output circuit. Look for 10, 33, 47, etc.. microfarads.In that range. I charge typicaly 150 to $200 with parts on something like this. Larry's Electronics ledstiles@hotmail.com

Hi Seems like you have a shorted output channel, remove all your speaker connections and try again, if the problem persist, good chances are that you need to replace a couple of power transistors, let me know if you need more help, I've fixed some Yamaha amplifiers with this problem Good Luck Miguel

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.

Yamaha RX-V1500 Shuts down after 2 seconds


This set is getting old and is in the Archives section of the Yamaha consumer guide area. But, you can still download the owners manual if you need one. If it is going into protection mode even when there are no speakers connected OR when the sound level is very, very low or zero it is not good news. Yes, unplugging the line cord will cause the protection system to reset itself. But, if it shuts itself off again soon after rebooting it is a sign of bad grease in the output stages -- in all probability. Let me explain: The audio output transistors are mounted to a large heatsink which keeps them cool during operation. They are electrically isolated from touching the heatsink by an electrical insulating washer. But, in order to keep them cool and allow for good thermal conductivity of the heat generated by the output transistors the washers are treated with a heat conducting grease. Over time this grease will dry out and lose its heat conductivity ability allowing the temperature of the transistors to rise; as the heat goes up they conduct more current and cause the protection system to activate and shut the set down (in order to avoid damage to the set). That is the most common cause of your symptoms. However, there are several other possibilities, but I give this explanation a 90% probability based on my experience.
