Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Yamaha RXV1 won't turn on. Every time power button is pressed a clicking sound is heard.

Yamaha RXV1 won't turn on. Every time power button is pressed a clicking sound is heard. So far I have tried unhooking all speakers, and unplugging the unit for 1 minute then plugging back in. It's the same. I was reading about it possibly being a bad/leaking capacitor or possibly a bad amp. I just wanted to find out if anyone on here has some more info than what I've seen thus far. If I use your info and it works I'm happy to send you some cheddar! Thanks!

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V1500 Shuts down after 2 seconds

This set is getting old and is in the Archives section of the Yamaha consumer guide area. But, you can still download the owners manual if you need one. If it is going into protection mode even when there are no speakers connected OR when the sound level is very, very low or zero it is not good news. Yes, unplugging the line cord will cause the protection system to reset itself. But, if it shuts itself off again soon after rebooting it is a sign of bad grease in the output stages -- in all probability. Let me explain: The audio output transistors are mounted to a large heatsink which keeps them cool during operation. They are electrically isolated from touching the heatsink by an electrical insulating washer. But, in order to keep them cool and allow for good thermal conductivity of the heat generated by the output transistors the washers are treated with a heat conducting grease. Over time this grease will dry out and lose its heat conductivity ability allowing the temperature of the transistors to rise; as the heat goes up they conduct more current and cause the protection system to activate and shut the set down (in order to avoid damage to the set). That is the most common cause of your symptoms. However, there are several other possibilities, but I give this explanation a 90% probability based on my experience.

SOURCE: clicks when powered on and off; only faint sound from left and right speakers

You may not be using an active input to test. Try attaching an fm antenna and using the tuner. Sone inputs are set to digial and will not make sound with the analog input. The input selector does turn it on. Saves a step.

SOURCE: Power on problem

Well this helped me find the relay but I found that after i pulled it off the board that it has some corosion around the metal prongs that hold it to the board. Could not get the relay open to do what is posted above , tryed opening it several times. Not sure if you are supposed to open it but could someone let me know. I am scraping around the prongs to get the corosion off hoping it will help but might just replace it alltogether. Further info on how to open the relay to do what is posted would help, I would appreciate any help, plzzzzz! :)

SOURCE: Kenwood Receiver KR-a5020 receiver won't come out of standby

The unit is in what is commonly known as "protect" mode. This means that a problem has been detected in the final output stage of the amp and the outputs are shutdown to prevent further damage to either the receiver or speakers. This should not be a difficult repair for a service shop. Expect a parts cost in the $25-$40 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

SOURCE: won't power up; push power button on, hear click in back left of unti, get nothing on front display and no output from speakers; as if unit trying to operate

Disconnect the speakers and see what happens. Carefully examine the speaker cables for unwanted connections (shorts).
Take a clue from when the power problem appeared. Something was moved and made the buzz a (probable) dead short.

Htr-3064 reset power on


I had a Power surge in Brisbane this week and found my YAMAHA HTR-3064 AV receiver unresponsive. Thanks to the Squish22's post, I tried the above approach, which is also listed for another Yamaha model (RX-V667) Unfortunately nothing happened. Another post suggested holding the 'straight' button as you power up to go into "advanced" menu (under DILLIGAF's post.) This also did not work.
I thought I'd try pressing all 3 buttons and powering up, which worked a treat. so here's exactly what I did:

Yamaha HTR-3064 - Protection mode reset:
  1. Remove the Power cord form mains power and wait 10 seconds.
  2. Plug cord in and turn on wall socket power.
  3. While holding down "info", "straight" and "tone control" buttons, press "main zone" power button. I got a click and it was good to go from there.
I had all of my speakers unplugged at the time and tested off the headphone jack before plugging all the cables back in again. Not sure if I needed to unplug everything, but I was about to dismantle and look for a fuse when I tried this method.
Saved me a new system / service fee. Hope it helps you too.
Thanks Squish22 and DILLIGAF for the head-start!

the clicking may have been coming from the relay itself, but it doesn't simply mean that the relay is faulty. clicking may also be caused by transformers, indicating that some electronic components have developed SHORT CIRCUIT. try measuring resistance of transistors and diodes near the power unit (unplug/turn the unit OFF of course) check also for the impedance of the output power transformers.
check the amplifier IC for short also.

Yamaha RX-V375 turns off during periods of heavy subwoofer/base sounds. Sometimes it turns itself back on, other times not. Help!


most likely you're hitting the clipping or the threshold of the power.
the other possibilities is you have a small short there.
one way is unhook our speakers, tidy the cable u and hook it back to make sure there are no shorts.
if this does not solve the problem then you just might be hitting the limit of your receiver which the only way is to change receiver or your speakers to match them

Trying to hook up a velodyne dd 12 sub to the unit. Please direct me to the correct way to do this


I have the same setup. Use 1 pair (Left/Right) RCA to RCA cable. Connect from Velodyne "Input" (left connectors) to Yamaha SubWoofer #1 Preamp output. Make sure you have the sub's volume (left knob from back) very low (full counter clockwise is "Min") until you are setting up the audio balance in your house/room. Set Low Pass cross over to 80Hz, Phase switch to 0, subsonic to 20Hz, X-over to "IN", Power to "auto"
On Yamaha RXV1 remote control, go into speaker setup and turn on Sub and any other speakers you have connected.
Warning!! do not turn up volume near a china cabinet while you are watching a movie. Everything will walk off the shelf.

Fails to switch on but a clicking noise is heard when power button is pressed.


Sounds like the protection relay for the speakers constantly activating,indicating either a short circuit or high bias current on the amp power supply. A qualified tech would be able to say easily with the right gear

Will not turn on.


It has an internal problem. Just received an RX-V2600 back from service for the same issue. It took a voltage drop then a spike. It takes out 5 caps and a few other parts. The repair will run roughly 250-275 depending on who does the service. Hope this helps

Diplay dont work and no sound from speakers


Does it turn on? or does it "click" then a second later, "click" again? First thing to look at would be the internal fuse. Pull the top off the unit and check the fuse, it's located right near the AC input. If the fuse is ok, it needs serviced, if it's bad, you can find a replacement at radio shack. Hope this helps. If you need more help, just post a comment and I can help some more.

Yamaha YSP 1100 clicks when press power button but does not turn.


Hi

I have the YSP1000 and I had a similar issue but it was less frequent. I located the clicking sound which turned out to be a relay on the main circuit board. Before replacing it I removed the relay cover and cleaned the contacts. It has not miss behaved since and that was some 8 months ago. Give it a wizz
