All amps comes with fuses near to the power supply, the yamaha's fuses will be inside the amp. check the fuses if the fuses are not blown than the power supply must be tested by a technician.

Can hear switch/relay clickcing at back near power inlet, inconsistently fails to power up when power button pressed

Many of these amps have a thermal fuse in the power transformer

get a tech to check for a primary connection on the transformer

There also may be fuses on the output of the transformer as well

I have a jvc a-s5 intergrated amplifier that recently stopped working the power still comes on but previosly there would be a little pop and then the power light would come on, now the power light just...

Hi... There may be a couple of internal glass fuses inside. Check those. Make sure speakers are firmly connected.
Try the amp w/o speakers on.

If those fail it will need real service

The amp just quit. will not power back up.

Ok there is a few steps to check in this case.
1. Make sure the positive cable is secured proply on the battery termnial also while you are there as well check to make sure the fuse on the positive cable isn't blown.

2.Make sure your ground cable is secured proply down on the frame of the car or if you are runing a negitive cable back to the battery(the same apply,s as step 1 - less the fuse).

3.Check to make sure the remote turn on cable is not lose on the amp connection.

Hope this will help a bit.

My Yamaha M60 amplifier is not working

The most common cause of this is a failure of the output transistors. These amps are not the easiest for access during repair. I would not suggest you attempt this repair if you have no experience working on these. The output transistors and some additional parts in the same circuit are likely to require replacement. Figure on about $50-$70 for parts. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost. This is a good unit and is worth the repair cost. You will get many additional years of performance out of it once repaired. Dan

Hi guys

Quick check... If the amp still stays in safety mode with the vol turned down and the speakers disconnected, it will have failed in some way. Since you have the safety operation light ON, you can expect that the power transformer is OK. I would expect that you have a DC offset condition on one channel. The most common problems you may have are
  1. dry solder joints about the power stages such as regulators, and output/driver transistors/IC's.
  2. blown output transistors/output IC with possible fusible resistor failures, and or sometimes burnt up printed circuit tracks.
  3. a voltage rail failure from a burnt fusible or power supply component.
If you are up with electronic fault finding, soldering and have the tools, have a go yourself, I could talk you through it. If not, I would suggest you contact you local HiFi specialist and find who can repair it or at least check to see what has failed for you. Good Luck. If you cannot find someone, hit me back and I will try to find someone for you. Cheers

Disconnect the unit from the mains at the wall socket. Leave powered down for 5 mins to ensure a good reset and turn unit on again and see what happens. If there is still no life. Check for failed fuses inside amp. ALWAYS RELACE FUSES WITH THE SAME RATING AND TYPE.
