Try holding the 'straight' and 'audio select' buttons and press power. What does it say on the front panel? Should say some kind of protect: I, DC, PS. This will help narrow down where your problem is.

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V661 polarity problem

There is no "fix" the mic is picking up a lack of bass based on room acoustics and is trying to help. There is nothing wrong. If you are using bi-pole or dipole speakers it will always show out of phase.

SOURCE: My Yamaha RX-V661 shuts off at moderate volumes.

Try to disconnect speakers one by one and see if any of them causes the problem.

SOURCE: Will not power up

Many receivers are built with relay protection on all speaker outputs. Very handy if there happens to be a questionable speaker or maybe a short circuit in the speaker wiring. What happens is the receiver checks each load on the speaker outputs and if it senses a problems it won't activate the relay to switch audio to the outputs.

Pull you system to pieces, speakerwise, and check if there is a broken or shorted connection. Repair the cable and switch the receiver back on to see if you've solved the problem. If it hasn't then a trip to your friendly repairman may be in order. An interal problem can cause similar clicking noises. But I wouldn't recommend poking around the innards if you are unsure of your abilities.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Yamaha RX-A700, It has a flashing

Hi.

The receiver is in forced standby because an internal error has been detected. The condition occurs when there is an internal failure, a wiring related problem (e.g. bad cable), or a wrong voltage from power source is detected (e.g. power surge).

At user level troubleshooting consists in disconnecting power cord, waiting ten or twenty minutes and connecting back (power reset), or in checking cables connected to the unit, replacing cables and restarting the receiver with no cable connected.

If that does not help, then there is an internal failure.

In that case contact Yamaha at the number listed in the owners manual.

Regards.

Ginko.

Hello Sramub hi, there are shorted parts inside your Yamaha, the shorted part is causing the unit not to power on. This feature of not powering on is the powers supply ability to prevent the unit for further damage. Visit your local Yamaha store, for service.

I tried hooking up an old polk sub to my yamaha rx-v659 av receiver. smelled wires burning smell. before i could unplug it, receiver shut down. now it will power up for about 5 seconds and shut off. manual...


If a fuse was blown, it likely would have no power. However if the power board has overheated, the capacitors may have swelled up and burnt out and will only allow it to power on for a few seconds, then shut down. The capacitors can look swelled up or burnt or have burn marks on the power circuit board. You can test them with a continuity meter. Each component has a printed number of it's voltage and ohm resistance so you can test them.

I cannot make any changes to my Zone 2 -- cannot change the volume or change the setting from what Zone 1 is on. A blinking symbol that looks like a mushroom appears when you are trying to switch between...


Hi.

Looks like the the unit is locked to region 1.

The Yamaha receiver you listed is region free, therefore I assume you are talking about a different unit, in that case give model please.

If you have the problem with a Yamaha RX-V661, then simply disconnect power cord for ten minutes. And disconnect from power all devices connected to the receiver.
This should reset the system.

Let me know in case it does not work.

Regards.

Subwoofer plug broken?


Most likely the plug is ok but the level control for the subwoofer will need to be readjusted in the receiver, If the level cannot be raised making sure your source being used has subwoofer information, then there could be a problem in that circuit.

Shuts off within seconds of turning on.


Sounds like the "crack!" was a capacitor that got fat and blew up.
