Question about Yamaha RX-V1800

Please help problem with power Yamaha RXV-1800 shut offs

RX-V 1800 problem-please help!!! If anyone has experienced this problem or has some advice, your help would be greatly appreciated. We bought a new Yamaha RX-V 1800 about six months ago. While we love our new receiver, it randomly shuts off (while watching tv, listening to music, sometimes just a minute after it was turned on, sometimes later) and won't turn on again, for hours, for a day or two, sometimes it comes on and goes right back off again. The last time, we got an error message that read CDDA upgrader 1800.

The company we bought it from, Sound Advice, went out of business a few months after we bought it. We brought it in for warranty repair ( nearest shop is about 2 hours away; we're in FL), but the technician "couldn't find anything wrong with it." We get it back, and two weeks later it shuts off again. We have unplugged it from our system, run it alone, plugged it into a different outlet, with no luck- we're still facing intermittent power shut offs. The problem is random, so we're facing a cycle of having the tech take it in, play it for two weeks and send it back with us, only to have the cycle start over again. Has anyone experienced this problem, or does anyone have advice for us? We're going nuts with this thing, and it was a major purchase we saved for a while for. We have a house full of Yamaha equipment, and have never had a problem like this. Any advive would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: receiver shuts off at times

Those recivers are usually preety good oones with little to no problems. Its just when it gets a certin age it extends its life. You can take it in to a technician to have it serviced, mostly you have cracked solders on the board which will accout for the problems you are having. there might be a few things that need changing but basically your recuver is good it just needs servicing thats all.
Or if you prefer you could get a new one.. BUT YOU CAN JUST HAVE THE CURRENT ONE YOU GOT SERVICED..

a service wil include
re-soldering cracked or loose solders on the board
changing a couple of stuff, maybe capicators or resistors and unlikely an ic.
dusting it

So just take it in to a technician for a service cause its reached it life span ,,

SOURCE: Shuts off within seconds of turning on.

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

SOURCE: Yamaha RX V2400 keeps shutting off

When it shuts off, does it display anything on the front like "ck speakers" you could have a shorted wire or bad speaker. Sounds more likely than a bad receiver. Yamaha is pretty bulletproof in "self preservation" circuitry! about the only thing that takes them out is lightning and major power surges. I have been selling and installing Yamaha receivers since 1995 and have only ever seen one with a problem that was unrelated to power. and I've done hundreds. If your not using HDMI, and the Video portion of the receiver, I would definately keep the unit $ 1500.00 is no cheap receiver. Try disconnecting the speakers, then turn on the unit with a source connected like cable/sat/fios on then crank the vol and let it set, if it cuts out, yes you've got a problem internally, however, I would stronly suggest metering all of the speakers and wires for shorts. There is an internal fuse as well right near the power cord, you have to pop the top to get to it, If you have a multimeter check the fuse with resistance tone. If you get tone, you have a good fuse if not If you need to replace it. They can be found at Radio Shack etc. If the fuse is OK, chances are you've got bad transistor(s) and needs to go to service. Repair should be under 200, well worth it. If you have further questions, post a comment and I will get back to you ASAP. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Yamaha Receiver sound cuts out with Dolby Digital.

Your problem is related to HDMI technology not the Receiver. HDMI in it's current version 1.3b has worked out 90% of the current problems being reported by HDMI users. it's a problem with HDCP digital copyright protection and the recording industry not wanting us "consumers" to duplicate or record their DVD's. Your receiver and every other receiver with version 1.1,-1.2, & 1.2a just don't cooperate with BluRay and even HD Cable or HD Sat receivers. If you just purchased this receiver recently, return it and get an 09' model or equivalent with 1.3a or 1.3b HDMI technology. If this unit is "un-returnable" then, what needs to happen is you need to run component video and digital audio to the receiver OR Run your HDMI directly to your TV and run a Digital Coaxial to your DVD audio input on the receiver. Depending on how many sources you are running to the TV via HDMI will be limited to the TV's capability (how many HDMI inputs)

Now, if your TV is 50" or smaller, the difference between running HDMI and Component is unmeasurable to the human eye. So, if you have to run component, don't sweat it! just use good cable, ie. Monster, Phoenix, Translucent etc. I do theese installs every day, and I still prefer Component or DVI if available over HDMI. They just haven't proved the reliability to me yet and we're three years in! Hope this helps

My Yamaha rx v 563 brand new used few hours only, doesn't turn on.all speaker's connected,.please give me yr valuable advices Thanks


Try holding the INFO and TONE CONTROL buttons and pressing power. This will release the protect lock. If it shuts back off, try disconnecting your speakers and try it again. You might have a shorted speaker or cable hooked up causing it to shut down.

Yamaha RXV-730 6.1 Channel A/V Receiver


the clicking may have been coming from the relay itself, but it doesn't simply mean that the relay is faulty. clicking may also be caused by transformers, indicating that some electronic components have developed SHORT CIRCUIT. try measuring resistance of transistors and diodes near the power unit (unplug/turn the unit OFF of course) check also for the impedance of the output power transformers.
check the amplifier IC for short also.

Open the unit and inspect for cold solder connections. Use a non-conductive tool to poke the circuit board for the bad connection. Please keep in mind that when you do this, the unit has to be powered up - be cautious of the live circuit.

My rxv 1800 wasnt used for probably a year but was left plugged to a wall outlet during that time it wasnt used. when i came home last week, i switched it on but immediately shuts off after a second. when...


r this one: Switc off your receiver using the main power button on the front face. Hold the the Effect button and the Direct button, and turn the main power ON.f it ain't working, try this one: Turn your receiver ON and, while holding down the [VCR1] button, press the [STANDBY/ON] button. "Clear" might appears on the display and your receiver might enter Standby mode.
Hope it does.. With your receiver in the Standby mode, hold on STRAIGHT (EFFECT) on the front panel and press STANDBY/ON.
* The ADVANCED sETUP menu appears in the front panel display.ress STRAIGHT (EFFECT) to select the desired setting.
RESET = To reset your receiver to its factory presets.
CANCEL = To cancel without making any changes Press STANDBY/ON to confirm your selection.
* If you selected "RESET", your receiver is reset to its factory presets and switches to Standby mode good luck
