SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V657 Zone 2

Suggestion by clarkent22

I called and spoke with Yamaha support staff (Chuck) who was very helpful. I was able to get my issue resolved hopefully this works for you too.

Couple of solutions:
1) Go into the Menu setting (Manual SetUp/Speaker Set) and make sure that you do not have Presence Speakers or Suround Back Speakers
2) Also in the Menu settings (Manual SetUp/Options/Multi Zone Settings) make sure that your Zone 2 Amplifier is set to "Int" (assuming you are not using external amp
3) Zone 2 can only accept an analog signal (not digital)... so there are two steps to this one. First, make sure that you either run only analog, or if you run digital and analog then you need to select "Analog Input" on the front of the unit. If yours was working earlier, my guess is that your input settings got switched to digital (or auto) You need to have analog set up for each specific external source (DVD, Cable/DTS, etc)....
4) This model receiver will only let you control Zone 2 with the remote control. You can power it on the receiver unit. But to select your source you have to press the Amp button, then the ** button. Then you control Zone 2 and you can toggle sources and adjust volume. (Check your owners manual for programing remote for zone 2.. think I pressed the "code" button and then 2999.)

Hope this helps... it worked for me If not call Yamaha they were very helpful.

SOURCE: yamaha rx-v661 unsolved speaker wiring error

1. Try running the auto setup without the sub. ( is it a powered sub {the sub has its own amp on the back} or is a NON powered sub that is driven off the speaker jacks of the Yamaha receiver. )

If the sub is powered, and connected to the Amp via the RCA cable from the " sub out " jack, chances are you either have a defective sub or a gound loop.


Good luck...Rob

SOURCE: No volume in Zone 2

Get the original Yamaha remote, go to Set menu, manual setup, speaker setup, and look for "extra speaker." it needs to be set to "zone 2." This is off the top of my head, so it should be pretty accurate. Get used to doing this, though, as this amplifier assignment to zone 2 is prone to resetting itself in those Yamahas.

SOURCE: My Yamaha RX-V661 shuts off at moderate volumes.

Try to disconnect speakers one by one and see if any of them causes the problem.

SOURCE: I want my Comcast remote & Yamaha RX-661 to communicate??

I am guessing at what remote you are using, so the code may not work. If that is the case, go to the following link and pick your remote from the picture list.

No sound comes out but my speakers buzz. What do I do? I have a Yamaha RX-V661.


Sorry but you have to get your amplifier at a technician. The buzz from the speakers means internal electronic damage at the amplifier. TAKE CARE THAT in case of keeping the speakers on the buzz noise for some seconds may destroy the speakers.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Subwoofer plug broken?


Most likely the plug is ok but the level control for the subwoofer will need to be readjusted in the receiver, If the level cannot be raised making sure your source being used has subwoofer information, then there could be a problem in that circuit.

Yamaha RX-V661 polarity problem


There is no "fix" the mic is picking up a lack of bass based on room acoustics and is trying to help. There is nothing wrong. If you are using bi-pole or dipole speakers it will always show out of phase.
