Question about Yamaha RX-797 Receiver
I recently acquired a used RX-730 receiver. Seems to work well except that the display panel does not light. Can this be easily repaired/replaced?
It may not need repair. if you have it hooked up to a TV, by video, s-video, or component. Press the menu button on the remote and you can see the main menu of the unit on the TV. Navigate the menu up/down/left/right/enter until you get to "display". You should be able to turn the display of the receiver on/off. If you don't have the manual. http://www.yamaha.com/yamahavgn/Documents/YEC/Stereo_Receivers/Manual/RX-797_e_U_p.pdf That's the PDF from Yamaha. I haven't used this particular unit, but that's the way it's done on all the other series. ie. RX-V or RX-Z. Hope this helps

Out of curiosity, could you please elaborate on your issue. My RX-730 display is completely dead. It should actually have two lights, one general backlight and then the LCD display to indicate station frequency, etc. Does either one of these work for you? If so, which one? Can you check the voltage at the output terminals for your backlight? It is pretty simple, just trace the wires from the display back to the connector header on the board and put your VOM leads across the two terminals with the unit powered up. What voltage reading are you getting. I just checked mine and read about 0.12 volts which seems kind of low for a lamp circuit. I'll let you know what the service manual says when I get my hands on one.
