Question about Yamaha RX-V757 Receiver

My Yamaha HTR-6050 shuts off at random times and says "Check SP Cable"

My Yamaha HTR-6050 Surround Sound system shuts off at random times.  Then, a message pops up that says "Check SP Cable".  I've checked all the cables, but the problem continues.  I'm not a huge technology guy, so I don't exactly know which cable is the SP Cable.  So, if someone has a suggestion or can tell me what the SP Cable is, it would be appreciated.
Thanks I've got a Yamaha RX-V757 hooked on Definative Speakers. It shuts of every time i get to about -17db although different songs might last longer than others im guessing the wave lenghts. Is this with all Yamaha?

    I have the same problem. When the audio peaks or spikes during a film the receiver just shuts down. I get the same error message and the menu says error (1) but I don't know what that means.

Try running digital audio from the source - cable/sat - to the receiver. The fewer intervening connections and entities, the better. TV's are NOT considered sound sources for high end purposes or we wouldn't have Yamaha HTR-5860's and better speakers, would we?

Probably the speakers are not wired correctly. Check this by turning on the receiver without speakers connected. If the message is gone, issue was in the connection of speakers. Check that you have not short-wired the + and -.

Problem with sp cable (yamaha)


The speaker cables are the ones that clamp or tighen down on the back of the reciever. All the spkr wires have to have the positive and negative leads correct. Also not aven one little strand of wire can be touching another conductor or you will have this problem. Make sure all leads are correctly ran and hooked up positive to positive and negative to negative from the back of the reciever all the way to the speakers. This should solv your problem.

Yamaha 5.1 says Check SP Cable and shuts down - has been fine.


It has nothing to do with the input you choose. A speaker wire is shorted. Disconnect each one in turn and try it. The last one disconnected before it stops failing is the one.

My Yamaha HTR-6050 shuts off at random times and says "Check SP Cable"


That is a check the speaker wire error, caused by a short or perceived short. If you look at the back of the receiver you may see 1 strand of the wire loose, they are very hard to see sometimes. You may use banana plugs as it is painful to get everything hooked up without a few loose strands.

If there is still the issue check your speaker connections for the same issue. If they are in ceiling/wall speakers disconnect them all then plug them in one at a time to narrow it down.

If the issue persists perhaps one of your speaker wires has a short somewhere, could be a misplaced drywall screw from hanging a picture, or a carpet tack strip, or a pet deciding it was a nice chew toy.

If you are completely sure it is none of those then I would say it is a bad speaker or receiver. Try changing in and out known good speakers/receivers if you have access to them to see which one it is.

Good luck

"Check Speaker Wire" error on my Yamaha Receiver


found the source of the problem with "Check SP Wires"! to solve it is necessary to check each speaker connected to the device Yamaha on the rear panel (red and black) using the device for determining the number of ohms, which shall not be less than 4 ohms, in large passive speakers experienced in Amfitone AU-027, the result showed that left at 0.45 (7) ohms, and the right-hand column, as such, no.
The successful test ... and good music!
