Question about Yamaha Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

Shutting off I've had my Yamaha reciever for 9 months and never had any problems with it until shortly ago. All of the sudden now it runs for 4 or 5 minutes with sound, then just shuts itself off. I checked my wires to make sure they weren't crossed, and they were fine. Then I tried unplugging all speaker wires and turning it on, again 4 or 5 minutes and it shut off. I tried reseting but that didn't work either. It's well ventilated area so that isn't the problem either. Any help would be appreciated.

I have had a Kenwood VR-407 reciever for almost 9 years now but it has just started cutting off. The small power/standby light above the power button goes off when I power it up but then it shortly...

If you've already disconnected the speakers then I suspect the fault is internal on the amplifier and the unit is shutting down to protect iteself.

The fault with most amplfiers can normally be traced to blown or leading capacitors (bulge on the top or liquid around base) which can be replaced for little cost if you've got the technical ability and equipment to desolder and resolder components on a PCB.

First thing to do would be to remove the cover and check the capacitors as detailed above.

Reciever shuts down by itself

Hi, i have similar/same problem, on initial power on, you have after 3 -4 secs an audible click from inside and all is good... if you then try to change inputs either via front panel and or remote, the unit switches off. if you change input prior to audible click, ie within 2-3 secs of power on , all is good and amp works fine, until you change input etc...very painful fault.. i thought it is sensing /checking the speaker outputs and detecting short etc ,so powering off to protect.. but then just my thought, i suspect something else, if anyone has the fix and can repair , please let me know.

HTR-5890 receiver keeps shutting down

for the past month i have been shopping for the perfect home theater system and have narrowed it down to a bose system,a sony system and a paramax p510...i have listened to all 3 systems and have found the paramax to be the better system not a cheaper system but seem more bang for my buck at 3200$,a very powerful tube amp and downfiring sub maxes out at 2000 watts...

Sound no picture, picture;no sound

a panasonic tv will shut down after a short time with no video input. it sounds like the setup menu in the receiver has defaulted and needs to be setup again to coordinate the audio and video signals. ive seen many yamaha menus default. dont let geeks in your house.

sounds like you have the polairity reversed on the speakers
and yes it does make a difference
check polairity also make sure unit is well ventelated
you wouldnt use your compouter if it was inside a card board box
so make sure the reciever can breath also
recievers get too hot and they start blowing chips off the board

first you have to test separatly your speakers outputs
disconnect all wires speaker and speakers, turn on your reciever and look if you still have the same problem «CHECK SPEAKER WIRES alert» if yes you have to go to a specialist to fix it... if no test one line after one line with and without speaker connected until the problem reappear to locate the bad line or bad speaker.

Receiver turns on and clicks off when volume is raised over 8 or 9 on the dial

I had the same problem with my Yamaha amp. It turned out to be a shorting speaker wire. When I resoldered the speaker wall outlet connection it worked fine!

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.
