Yamaha RX-V595A tuns off automatically

When I press the STANDBY/ON button, the unit turns on for a split secnd and the automatically turns off.  I have checked all the speaker connections and they look good.  I have also unplugged the received for 30 seconds and made sure the impedence selector is set accordingly but this doesn't work either.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: Yamaha RX-V595A tuns off automatically

This was happening to mine also, all of a sudden. This solution came from the owners manual. Sure enough, the impedance selector was stuck in the middle , between 4 and 8 ohms....I also, made sure the speaker wires were not touching each other at the splice. Problem fixed.

The unit fails to turn on when 
STANDBY/ON is pressed, or set in 
the standby mode suddenly soon 
after the power has been turned on. 
The power cord is not plugged in or the 
plug is not completely inserted. 
on the rear panel is not fully set to the 
upper or lower end. 
Firmly plug in the power cord. 
Set the switch fully to the upper or 
lower end when the unit is in the 
standby mode.

Yamaha receiver shuts off automatically after two seconds. Changing Inpedence switch has no impact.

Does disconnecting all the speakers make a difference? If so, troubleshoot the short out to a speaker.

If not, it's due for a trip to the ER.

Yamaha RX-V595a receiver shuts off 2 seconds after its powered on

The first thing called out is the impedance switch on the back is not fully in one or the other position. Cycle the switch back and forth to make sure it will 'read' each setting, then turn it on.

Also make sure you if you have anything connected to its convenience outlets that they are not drawing more current than is allowed.

Did you buy it used or new?
