Check SP Wires Problem

My Yamaha receiver used to be fine, until sometime ago when it started turning off after a while and signalling "check SP wires". I check all wiring very carefully and even changed the cables. but even without any speakers connected to the receiver it turns off in a matter of a second after switching it on. Anybody knows what to do about that?

There is any short circuit either at its speaker end or its amp output circuit. Just disconnect all of the speaker wires, and turn ON the set, If the set behaves so, as it was, make sure that the amp output circuit has the fault. Is this the case, contact any service technician.
If the set switches On and stays as it is, after disconnecting all the speaker wires out from it, switch of the set, and connect the speakers one by one at a time, switch on the set, and check, which speaker connection causes it to a halt. Thus you can identify the faulty speaker. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy Pull up older posts.

    Thank you for the fast answer. I took it right away to a shop. They told me to throw it away. Because of it's complicated wiring it would be cheaper to buy a new-used one..

  • Steve K May 12, 2014

    not neccesarily. depends on what the problem is. It could be as simple as a capacitor on the speaker lines or it could be a problem with the amp. If it's the amp, then it probably would be expensive, but if they just told you to throw it out without really looking at it, then they are doing you a dis-service. I repair these types of units everyday.

SOURCE: check sp wires?

Your problem most likly is not because of dust. Its a bad connection in the amp section or the protection circuit, or the speakers them self have a problem. There could also be a componet problem. Unless you know how to troubleshoot solid state electronics,you should take the unit in to be serviced. It would most likly cost more then its worth to repair. A unit this old is u replaced at this point. Good Luck

You may have speaker wires touching each other or a short circuit in the wire. "Check SP Wires" means to check your speaker wires.

SOURCE: my yamaha htr 3750 said check sp wires then turned off

Your Yamaha is going into protection model.

This mostly happens when:
1). There is rise of internal temperature.
2).Core wires of the speakers are touching each other or a core wire is sticking out of the terminal and touching the set's rear panel or the speaker itself has a problem.
3). Speakers with an impedance other than specified are being used.
or
4). the set is damamged or has bad solder / dry solder connection .

Just check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Rewire if necessary..
Are you using banana plugs for connecting speaker or just directly. Some times even a little tiny frayed wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.

If everything else seems all right and still your receiver shut down then it possible that
1).there are bad connections on the main board that are set in.
This would generally happen if the system is slighly old or have dry solder. This should be a simple repair that will not require parts. If you can solder, you will be able to repair this yourself. I could guide you a bit. If not, then a local service center will change the local labor rate.
2). Some transistors have blown on the output power board:
This will require little bit of more electronic knowledge.

I suggest if your set is still under warranty, then please take it to Yamaha.

Hope you can sort out your problem with the above trouble shooting. Let me know if I can guide you further.
Thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: the same..

Your unit took a power spike or a brown out; big dip in power then a surge. Yamaha's receivers are pretty solid when it comes to power supply's! it takes alot to zap em! If that's the case, it's about a 275 dollar repair. They will replace main transistors and caps. If you don't have a serious Home Theater Surge/Conditioner (not a power strip) get one! any receiver with today's spec's will be toast!. If you need some guidance on receiver's or surge, post a comment and I can help you out. Sorry for the bad luck!

Yamaha Theatre receiver turns off at high volume 'Check SP wires' checked speaker wires no problem found. Why is this happening?


there are usually 2 things that cause this, (1) a driver in your speaker is going bad or a output IC/transister is going bad. Being a tech I have seen devices that operate fine at low to moderate levels but would fail when driven hard.

I JUST REPLACED MY OLD RECEIVER WITH A YAMAHA AND DON'T SEE WHERE TO CONNECT THE POWER FOR THE CD AND TAPE PLAYER. DO I PLUG THEM INTO A POWER STRIP?


Yes, that will be fine just make sure its the same AC power as the new Yamaha is using.

Before connecting any AC mains always turn off your Amp, and don't turn back on again until all the signal cables for the new equipment are connected.

When checking if it all works, always start with low volume to check everything is correct.

Hope this helps

SAID CHECK UR SP CABLE?


Don't you mean it said, "Check SP wires"?

And what was the result when you did that?

How about if you disconnect all the speakers and try again. Then what? Add one at a time until it either fails again or starts working with all speakers attached.

Still fails with all speakers disconnected? Take it in to a shop.

Receiver shuts off intermittently, when you turn it back on it says "check SF wires". What are SF wires?


It's "check SP wires". It means (do I have to say it?) Check the Speaker Wires for short circuits.

I have yamaha v863 receiver. when i play movies on dvd. Any times


Check to make sure no wires are touching at the reciever. Next step is process of eleminaton. Unhook each speaker until it works or if you have a meter you could always check to see if you have a blown speaker or shorted wire. I would first disconnect all speakers and check to see if unit does it with no speakers connected.

Check SP wires


There is an internal short that is being detected. This is probably a defective output transistor that is somewhat sensitive to heat. This should be a straightforward repair with a parts cost in the $20 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total cost.

My Yamaha HTR-6050 shuts off at random times and says "Check SP Cable"


That is a check the speaker wire error, caused by a short or perceived short. If you look at the back of the receiver you may see 1 strand of the wire loose, they are very hard to see sometimes. You may use banana plugs as it is painful to get everything hooked up without a few loose strands.

If there is still the issue check your speaker connections for the same issue. If they are in ceiling/wall speakers disconnect them all then plug them in one at a time to narrow it down.

If the issue persists perhaps one of your speaker wires has a short somewhere, could be a misplaced drywall screw from hanging a picture, or a carpet tack strip, or a pet deciding it was a nice chew toy.

If you are completely sure it is none of those then I would say it is a bad speaker or receiver. Try changing in and out known good speakers/receivers if you have access to them to see which one it is.

Good luck

"Check Speaker Wire" error on my Yamaha Receiver


found the source of the problem with "Check SP Wires"! to solve it is necessary to check each speaker connected to the device Yamaha on the rear panel (red and black) using the device for determining the number of ohms, which shall not be less than 4 ohms, in large passive speakers experienced in Amfitone AU-027, the result showed that left at 0.45 (7) ohms, and the right-hand column, as such, no.
The successful test ... and good music!
