No video When I am using the GUI for the V2600, I can see the video behind the GUI menus. I also have audio. As soon as I hit the GUI exit, video goes away but audio remains. Any suggestions?

Yamaha rx v2600 no audio at . hdmi cables ok. good video

Check the GUI menu for HDMI control and the Audio Pass thru setting. If you still have an issue, Set the Yamaha for "AUTO" on any audio input . That can be done thru the GUI menu or the hard button on the front of the receiver. Check your "Audio Output" settings on your Devices as well. ie DVD, Cable Box, Sat Receiver, etc. If you still have no audio, post a comment with the makes and models of all connected equipment and we can help you sort it out. Hope this helps

HTMI errors on the following devices DVD Blue-ray HDMI connected; CD Not HDMI connected; VCR Not HDMI connected; satellite works OK HDMI to Yamaha - HDMI to TV NO HDMI error displayed; GUI does not display...

You have to use Component Video on this unit. HDMI will not "Handshake" and pass thru. This was HDMI's first version "1.1a" and there is no fix. Use your receiver to switch audio via Coaxial or optical then use HDMI directly from BLURAY etc to your TV. The downside to this is how many HDMI inputs your TV has. It's an awesome receiver! Don't blame Yamaha!!! This issue is directly attributable to "HDMI" and their race to shelves before truly field testing the product. The current version of HDMI is 1.3b and soon to be 1.4 which includes ethernet capabilities.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news! If you would like an "in depth" look into the world of HDMI issues, Google HDMI problems or HDMI forums, and you can read for hours. Hope this helps

check the DC converter and associated transistors. an overload may have taken some out, and rendered the unit useless.

RX-V2600 shuts down

Try checking your speaker impedance. If you have 6 ohm or 8 ohm speakers make sure the impedence matches. On the front panel hold down button that says "straight effect" while pressing Stanby/On button, it will default to SP IMP 8 min, press straight effect again, if you have 6 ohm speakers, then press Standby again to exit setting. Also, double check your speaker wires to make sure they are all connected, and none are loose.

I hope this helps.

Since hooking up my dvd player(blu-ray)with hdmi, my video completly drops off after the receiver has been powered up for about 3 mintutes. This is not a problem when using component input and output- only...

The RX-V2600 is first generation HDMI and the firmware is HDMI 1.1a or b It will not pass video via HDMI. It's not a Yamaha problem, it was an HDMI problem. Every receiver with 1.1 or 1.2 firmware has issues. The newest version is 1.3b and so far so good. I'm a home integrator and still am leary of HDMI for that very reason! expensive cables too! if you are viewing on a TV 50" or smaller, the human eye cannot see the difference between 720p and 1080p. if your TV is bigger, run the HDMI directly to the TV and run Digital Coaxial or Optical audio to your receiver. That is the only solution. Hope this helps

No Gui

Does the GIU show up on the receivers screen? if so, scroll thru the menu to Manual(right click)-Video(right click)-On screen(right click)-(should be set to "always") If still persistant, post a comment and I'll help you further. Hope this helps

Outdoor speaker hook-up

Go into the manual setup on the GUI then go to the zone 2 and zone 3 setup. If you are using only the power from the receiver to power the speakers, make sure the setting is for Zone 3 amp "INT" if you still have no volume, on the front of the receiver look at the display, make sure "zone 3" is lit up then use the small remote and turn up the vol. if it's on you will see "zone 3 vol" and the bar going up it should be ok. if it says "fixed" it thinks you have an external volume control, if you do, make sure it's "on" at about 12 o'clock and test. If not, you need to switch it in the on screen "menu" or "GUI" button, follow to zone 2 & 3 vol control and make sure it is set to variable. If you still have no vol post a comment and we can dig further. Hope this helps
