Question about Yamaha Audio Players & Recorders
Power amps work but pre-amps are inoperative. Does it require a remote control to work?
Posted by Anonymous on
This unit has main in, preout jacks. When you say the amp works, are you referring to the amp turning on? There will be no sound out of the amps, if there is no preout. Are you aware that there needs to be jumpers between the main in and preout jacks? If you don't have the jumpers, no problem; just use a stereo patch cable between the jacks above.

HI SIR .THAT IS NOT BIG PROBLEM.ALL YOU HAVE TO DO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR PRE HAVE THE FLL.1 PROPERLLY EARTHED(THE GROUND FROM YOUR AMP ALSO GOES TO THE PRE )2 ASK YOUR ELECTRONIC MECHENIC TO CHECK IF THER'S NO BROKEN GROUND ON THE BOARD INSIDE.

I doubt it. Sounds like it is going into protection due to bad output transistors or some such. Time for a trip to the repair shop it sounds like.

It sounds like you want to use the external amp rather than the internal one. If that is the case, just connect the output of the EQ to the input of the external amp. All you are doing is inserting the EQ between the amp stages now. Using the mx-1 rather than the internal amp is no different.

I found this thread when I was having the same problem with mine. Turns out that it's sort of a problem, but not really. Looking at the manual (which I found in another google search) I believe a "4" on the volume level corresponds to a default remote control setting. The remote varies the level between 0 and 10, but the "10" corresponds to the maximum volume setting on the preamp. So it actually works, it's just that the "4" reading doesn't change. There's probably a pin you can short somewhere to make that default to "10" which would be ideal. But I'm not sure where that is. Now on to my other problem. This particular preamp has a subtle 120 Hz hum...
