Check for low regulated voltages right before it turns off . Then replace the regulator with the weak, low voltage output. It could have something else wrong with it but you can start there.

My Yamaha receiver RX V463 is immediately turning itself off after I try and turn it on? (both with remote and on the receiver itself)


Power it On without speakers connected.

If it powers up, reconnect speakers one at a time to find the cause.


If the problem persist even without speakers connected,

these unit needs servicing.

if you have any more questions let us know.

maybe the audio amplifier IC's have problems that's why the device protects himself from a bigger damage

I have a yamaha htr-6130 receiver that won't power on. When I push the power button it makes a click noise like it used to when it turned on immediately followed by another click. No lights come or or...


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


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.

Set keeps shutting down .this amplifier shuts down in about 30 seconds after turning it on


It could be that the amp's overload protection circuit is being triggered by a feedback loop or other problem, such as a shorted or bad cable connection. Turn off the power and unplug the receiver. Look for problems, starting with shorted speaker wires or cables. Then make sure the receiver's not still hot (wait 5-10 minutes to let it cool), and remove obstructions or anything blocking the top vents. Plug it back in and power up again. Immediately change the Source selector to something unconnected, and turn the Volume DOWN just in case there's a feedback loop (hum/squeal/noise that can overload things and cause the protection circuit to trip again). If you can see the display, go to a low level (around -50dB should be fine) before the delayed speaker amp output clicks on. Then carefully switch back to the problem source -- if that's the problem, switch off again immediately and re-check all of the cable connections at both ends, the receiver and the source component.
Make sure you don't have a feedback loop due to a recording device feeding back a signal. All VCRs and CD/DVD-recorders should be hooked up to the VCR, DVR or TAPE/CD-R "IN/OUT" jacks with IN being connected to the cables marked OUT on the deck and vice versa. (That confuses even us experienced guys sometimes!)
Also, no MONITOR video or audio outputs should be connected to the recording decks, nor should the TV outputs be fed back to the recorders. The same goes for the digital IN/OUT jacks for CD recorders; use only the same number IN as OUT for each component (For example, Optical IN/OUT #4 and #5 are the two digital IN/OUT pairs on the Denon AVR-380X series.)

Yamaha RX-V490 comes on, goes off


More than likely its going into protect mode to keep from blowing your speakers. That pop noise is DC getting to your speakers before it shuts off i would recommend checking for DC voltage at the outputs first. If your not electronically inclined take it to a shop. Let us know :-)
