Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver

1 Answer

Subwoofer plug broken?

I have a yamaha rx-v661 receiver and a Sony SA-W3000 subwoofer, and both were working great until about a week ago when our neighborhood had a power hit. I was able to reset the speaker levels, tone controls, etc., including the level of the subwoofer, but I've not been able to have the same performance level from it. It powers on but has very little output, even when I put its volume on 'full'. I bought a new subwoofer today, but no change. Is it possible the power hit affected the subwoofer plug on the receiver?

    Level control of the subwoofer is all the way over to the right while the spkr levels of two front spkrs and backspeakers are very low.

    If the level cannot be raised making sure your source being used has subwoofer information, then there could be a problem in that circuit.==I dont know what you mean by this...but if there is a circuit problem, I'll need to send it in for repair, right?

Most likely the plug is ok but the level control for the subwoofer will need to be readjusted in the receiver, If the level cannot be raised making sure your source being used has subwoofer information, then there could be a problem in that circuit.

try holding the 'straight' and 'audio select' buttons and press power. What does it say on the front panel? Should say some kind of protect: I, DC, PS. This will help narrow down where your problem is.

No auto setup display on TV


For the setup functions you have to use either the monitor out (a yellow jack on the top-right corner of the back) or you have to use component video out. HDMI will NOT work for setting up the system. This is one complaint to Yamaha from all of us.

There is no "fix" the mic is picking up a lack of bass based on room acoustics and is trying to help. There is nothing wrong. If you are using bi-pole or dipole speakers it will always show out of phase.

your receiver has zone 2 output which is operated independently of the main reciever. so you can have a dvd playing inthe main reciever and the tuner playing over the intercom. read about it in your manual page 89. in will hook up to 2 RCA jacks in the back Zone 2 out.
