Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Yamaha htr 3063

I'm having a problem where the system shuts down every time I try to start my PS3. The receiver runs fine until I turn on the PS3 then it shuts off as soon as the PS3 powers on. I'm only having that problem with that system. The Xbox 360 and my cable from Comcast run through it without issue. It's only the PS3 that causes it and it's only been in the last month or so. I've had it a couple of years and never had a problem 'til now. I tried plugging it into a different HDMI input thinking maybe the jack was bad. That didn't solve it. The Xbox started right up in the other jack and the PS3 did the same thing it has been. I also attempted to switch HDMI cables between the Xbox and PS3 to see if the cable was bad, but that wasn't it either. All I can come up with is that I have some kind of power conflict between the PS3 and the receiver, but I don't know how to solve it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Loud Hum in Pinnacle 150 subwoofer

The hum is likely due to either a failed capacitor in the subwoofer power supply or as it was for me, a cold solder joint on the capacitor. The fix is simple, but does require soldering. Unplug the subwoofer and set it on a good working surface. Remove the screws holding the back panel to the cabinet. These screws are the ones near the edge of the panel. Take off the panel by pulling back on it, reach into the subwoofer and carefully unplug the red and black speaker leads noting which one goes to each connector. Orient the panel with the electronics side up and the power cord at the lower right of the panel. Just to the left of where the power cord is soldered to the board is a large cylindrical capacitor. It is by far the largest cylidrical component on the board. This capacitor filters the hum made by the step down transformer in the power supply. If the capacitor is not working the subwoofer hums. The capacitor is soldered to the back of the electronics board. We had to reach in with a modified soldering iron to remove the capacitor. Before removing the capacitor check the orientation, there is a plus and minus, make sure it goes back in the same way. After removing the capacitor inspect the capacitor leads to see if they were both soldered correctly. If one of the leads is not silver the most likely cause is a cold solder and the fix is to simply clean up the capacitor leads by scraping off anything that is not silver, tinning the capacitor leads and re-soldering it to the board. If the leads look like they had a good solder, test the capacitor by using an ohm meter (used to test resistance) between the capacitor leads. The meter should show low resitance and as the capacitor charges the resitance should go up to infinite. If the meter does not behave this way while testing the capacitor, replace the capacitor. Bring the old capacitor with you to the electronics part store to make sure you get one that has the same electrical properties as the one you are replacing. The form of the capacitor might be different but as long as it is has the right electrical properties it will work. - and don't foget to make sure the polarity is correct when you solder it in!

SOURCE: Yamaha sourround sound reciever HTR 5920- not working

Can you remove connection between the receiver and TV and then try ? If it still turns hums and turns off, then try disconnecting all the speakers and power it on. If it still turns off, then you have a bad receiver...Let me know..

SOURCE: Connecting my HDTV to my Bose Cinemate

If your BOSE system only has one audio input you will have to connect everything to your tv and like the other guy said there will be an audio out on the back of your tv, connect that to your BOSE and when you switch inputs on your tv it should send that audio to your speaker setup.

This problem can also be caused by bad caps. This seems to be a real problem with this unit but considering the age I would replace the caps.

SOURCE: I just installed a Bose Cinemate II system. HDMI

No,you are not mistaken actually.I really don't have much to offer though.I just want to let you know that I have seen many problems with HDMI cables and no sound.HDMI does in fact transfer audio/video.Even though I do not like to use Wikipedia because anyone can edit the info,I check and see if it is accurate first and does give the best descriptions and is the quickest and easiest to find.This is a newer technology.Any new technology is usually not figured out until about year 5.In year 3,they are able to get the kinks worked out,but year 4 is already in production.They start designing and building the best version for year 5 next.Although 5 years isn't always achieved,it is more of a minimum to see the best possible of the technology.Happens with cars,TV's,VCR's,etc.Prices come down as everyone who wants it is greatly reduced by then also.Anyhow,here is a link to some info about HDMI.Scroll down to Communication channel protocols.Under TMDS there is some relevant info.You may not understand the terminology but basically it seems that there is an internal automatic muting with certain changes in the audio signal.It just sounds to me like the automatic mute is too sensitive right now and will improve over time.There is also some encryption taking place which is basically taking the output,scrambling it,sending it somewhere,and then being unscrambled and reproduced identically.Same as wireless internet.With all the various products being used,everyone has their own way of doing something.Since it isn't exactly made with exact specifications,there are many variations to interpret.If someone were to have ALL components made by 1 company,it would most likely work much better.How many people have that kind of setup though?Very few.There is not 1 company which makes everything they produce,better than everyone else's.Some make better radios,some TV's,etc.Right now,some of the better TV's are Samsung,LG,Vizio.Some better phones are AT&T,Panasonic.Bose has been at the top of the food chain for years for audio for that reason also.They do audio,nothing else,so they can put everything into it.I know this is a bit wordy but that's why I am here.To inform and educate people about things which they most likely don't understand and encourage them to spread the word.Hope you understand this anyhow.Basically,depending on how old your PS3 is,there may be compatibilty issues.With HDMI changing/upgrading rapidly,if your PS3 is an earlier version,it could simply be compatibility because PS3's even were changed as they sold more.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Here is the link for HDMI characteristics/operation.Good luck,Greg

On my HTR-3063, I could not get it to come on. So, I unplugged all the cables and speaker wires, and I plugged it in without any plugs or wires, and it turned on. So I changed all my wires and HDMI cables,...


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Add things one at a time until you identify the one component (probably a speaker) that is causing the problem.

Strangely enough, that message is NOT documented in the HTR-3063 manual, but in another Yamaha manual (HTR-5063) it means the speaker being tested is believed to be Out of Phase, meaning wired incorrectly.
