Maybe.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

I have a yamaha rx-v496 and it won't stay on. As soon as I turn it on, it turns right off. Is this a simple fix?

Volume to about between 40 and 28 causes receiver to turn off


It sounds like protect circuit is kicking in due to excessive current. If an OHM meter is handy, check for shorts on your speakers. If not disconnect one speaker at a time from the back of the reciever. Play unit at the volume that it fails. If it then plays fine you've isolated the bad speaker.

Voices vs. sounds


If you are passing video thru the monitor out to the TV, this will go much easier. First Press the GUI Menu button on the remote. If connected to TV, on screen menu will appear. Go to Manual Setup then (right arrow on the 4 way with the ok in middle) Speaker Settings then Speaker Select then go to Center Channel arrow right again and make sure it's "On" If it is, then go back to the main speaker settings and toggle to Speaker Level. Then select center channel and arrow right turns volume up. If you still have no audio, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot further. Hope this helps
