Question about Yamaha RX-497 2 Channels Receiver

Open Question

Yamaha receiver RX-497 sometimes is not switching on.

Yamaha receiver RX-497 is not switching on after a longer standby time.It behaves better, if I remove the power cable and connect it again after a minute. I heard a relais clicking some times and then the receiver switched on.
After that , immediate switching off and on is working properly.
The tuner channel settings are lost.

SOURCE: yamaha rx v1800 receiever will only play tuner on zone 2 speakers

Solution on page 111 of the owner's manual:

"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."

Basically you cannot use an HDMI input if you want to play in Zone 2 or 3. A simple solution is to add an extra audio cable from your PS3 audio output jack to an analog audio input jack on the receiver.

Most likely, one of the channels is blown, or you having power supply issue. It is hard to determine exact cause of the problem with out looking at the unit.

Make sure you have an analog RCA audio cable from the source to the receiver. Digital coaxial or optical will not work for zone 2 or zone 3. By adding an analog cable it will not affect your main zone, it will always go to digital first. Hope this helps

If you mean the where the aerial goes in, it will be much cheaper to replace that, then buy any board, even if they are still made.
Have a look in Maplins (uk) or Radio Shack (USA) to see if you spot something like it. It will just need soldering on!

How do i wire 1 cd player to two yamaha rx 497 stereo receivers


The answer depends more on our knowing what the CD player is than what the receivers are.

Does it have both digital and analog outputs? That would be one way? Coaxial digital outputs can sometimes be shared with two end units by placing an RCA splitter on the cable.

A single analog output can also be split with RCA splitters.

Couldn't you just slave the second receiver to the first one (via Tape 2 Rec/Out to the other one's Aux In or Tape PB/In) so ANYTHING the first receiver processes could be accessed by the second one?

You can reset the settings to factory defaults via the Advanced menu - it should be in your manual (I have RX-V465).
Do it from the standby mode.
Press the STANDBY button on front panel (not remote) together with STRAIGHT button on the front panel. Now you are in the Advanced Setup. Scroll to the INIT menu and select ALL.
Now you will have all settings in the default.

How do I turn On/Off my RX 596 reciever with my Yamaha remote ?


Press the Standby/On button on the remote or on the receiver (right below the Yamaha logo) to stop the audio output and display. The RX-596 goes into a low power standby mode when not in use; this allows it to respond to the remote when you press the buttons. If you want the receiver's power use to go to zero, you need to unplug it from the outlet. (You could also use a switched surge protector and push the switch to off.)

See page 9 (page 11 in the PDF) in the manual for the details on the On/Standby switch. The manual is available here: http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000057561.pdf . The page is also available here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/197512/Yamaha-Rx-596.html?page=11#manual .

I hope this helps.
