    smarthome2. I did what you said and it worked at first, but then the same thing happened againg. I have a rx-995. When i press the volume up or down on the remote, the lcd screen says volume up, but the volume does not change. if i manually change the volume it works just fine. but the remote does not work.

  • mike_demahy Jun 26, 2009

    yes, I can change the source from TV to tunner with no problem. I think the commands are getting to the remote because the lcd panel on the receiver shows volume up, the volume is just not changing.

    This fixed the problem for a short time, but the problem returned.

    I have the volme codes programmed into a universal remote mx 800. Neither remote works. they both do the same thing.

Unplug the receiver for a minute then plug it back in. This resets the controls. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I will help you troubleshoot further. Hope this helps

    Do any of the other controls function correctly from the remote to the reveiver?

    If you have the manual for the unit, do a reset on the remote control. If that does not work, just for arguments sake, if you have a cable/dss/fios remote, program yamaha's code into another remote. At minimum, cable/dss/fios remotes will control volume. That will let you know if it's actually a receiver problem or a remote problem. It's definately a strange one! I've been selling and installing yamaha for the last 14 years and haven't come across this one. If you need the manual



    This is the RX-V995 manual

    if you need codes for another remote, just let me know what it is and I'll get it to you

Yamaha rxv 870 - volume does not work from remote(s)


hi i have the same problem. yamaha rx-v870 with a remote control that works perfectly except for the volume up/down. i pressed the buttons for a minute and applied some lemon gunk remover liquid and this helped for a very short period. i am wondering if the problem is with the little motor inside the receiver that rotates the volume knob itself, as opposed to an infrared problem on the transmitter/receiver.

Yamaha RX-V800 shuts down when any control button is pressed


What if you DON'T use the remote? Does it shut down when just using it?

If SO, you have a bigger problem.

If NOT, it sounds like the remote is hosed - sending a code to shut off.

Do you have another remote of any brand that you could set to do something simple, like change volume? Don't train it from the original, though, or it would do the same thing.

YAMAHA AV receiver RX-V861 I have the message 'Vol-fix' appearing on Zone 2 and no sound. This was working fine until then


Setting the RX-V861 remote control to operate Zone 2:
  1. Using a ballpoint pen or similar object and press the [CODE SET] button RX-V861 remote control. The[TRANSMIT INDICATOR]on the remote should flash twice.
  2. Using the [NUMERICAL KEY PAD] on the remote and key in 9992, the [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] should flash.
Assigning the receivers internal amp for Zone 2:
  1. Set the remote control selector to [AMP]. (Located to the right of the volume buttons on the Remote.).
  2. Press the [SET MENU]button on the remote control.
  3. Arrow down to Manual Setup and press the Enter button on the remote control.
  4. Arrow to the [SOUND MENU] option and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  5. Arrow to Speaker Set and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  6. Arrow to the EXTRA SP ASSIGN and select ZONE2
  7. Press the [RETURN] button on the remote control to exit out and return to the Manual Setup.
NOTES: There is an option for setting the Maximum Volume and Initial Volume in the Zone Set menu.
  • Max Volume: This is an optional feature but isrecommended to prevent the accidental change in volume levels thatcould damage the speakers and receiver.
  • Initial Volume: This is also a great feature that would seamlessly start the volume level for the second or third zone at the desired level.
We do not recommend using any Speaker Selector boxes to enable more than the recommended number of speakers per terminal.
Controlling Zone 2 using the RX-V861 remote control:
  1. If the Main Zone on the receiver is on, press the [POWER BUTTON]down and while holding that button down press the [PHONO]/[**] button on the remote. The [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] will light up.
  2. You will not be able to use the following buttons on the remote: (Pressing any other button will cause the remote to exit Zone 2 mode. [POWER], [STANDBY], [VOLUME], [MUTE] and the [INPUT SELECTOR] buttons [DVD], [CD], etc.)

Do an automatic search for your code.
  1. Turn on the device you wish to program
  2. Point the remote control at the device
  3. Press and hold the mode key (i.e. tv, dvd or aux) you want to program
  4. Without releasing the selected mode key, press and hold the OK key simultaneously
  5. Release both the mode key and the OK key -All the modes keys will flash twice indicating programming mode
  6. Enter 922 by pressing the number keys on the remote control -The selected mode key will flash twice indicating correct entry (for anything other than AUX go to step 7, for the AUX mode searching only, press and release the play key then press 1 for VCR 2 for Receiver/Tuner 3 for Amplifier or 4 for Home Theater In The Box (HTIB) - The AUX mode keys will flash twice indicating correct entry)
  7. Press and release the PLAY key, every time you do this, autoserach will try a different code, continue to do this until your device turns off. (if you weren't paying attention and you miss it, the REW key can be used to go back through the codes one at a time, and the ff key can be utilized to move forward through the codes one at a time.)
  8. To save the code press the ENTER key (below the number 9) then press the exit to return to normal operations. (the selected mode key should flash three times
  9. Turn you device on by selecting the appropriate mode and power.

Volume control on unit


Kent, Unfortunately, it sounds as if the encoder is broken. The encoder is a digital input which takes the place of a traditional volume control, and is what holds the volume knob in place and spins. Since it works fine with the remote, that means everything else is ok, but you will have to replace, or have a tech replace, the encoder itself.

It has lost partially the mechanical connection between the volume control knob and the volume control pot.


The knob could be "stripped". A drop of a slightly resilient glue should do the trick. Do not use rigid adhesives, as this will prevent future service to this area of your receiver....accordianman
