Question about Yamaha RX-Z1 Receiver

2 Answers

I have the RX - V3000 Model. It turns on for a second and immediately turns off.

It turns on for a second and immediately turns off within a second. Lights come on and allow me to switch inputs really fast but still turns off within one second. I have replaced the fuse (ceremic 10 amp Fast) but to no avail.

Any thoughts?

I have a Yamaha 5.1 receiver. WHen it shut off suddenly after turning on, it was actually the protection circuitry kicking in (the positive end of the speaker cable to one of my front speakers had loosened and was touching the negative wire).

SOunds simplisitic, but this issue bugged me for a week before I figured out what was happening

I had the same issue and tried changing inputs and etc. within a second of time. Nothing I did worked until, I opened the lower front access door and twisted the effects knob around quickly. This stopped it from turning off and it has been functioning normally since. Even turning it off and on again is without the issue coming back. I did try most all the buttons previous to doing the effects knob, in case that makes a difference in the long-run.

Before the issue you are having started on the unit I was working on, the owner of this unit did say he was having an issue earlier with the monitor SVideo jack in back, having a role in it powering off like this, about 6 months ago. To make it work then, he would remove the SVideo cable from the monitor jack, turn on the unit and then put back the SVideo cable once the unit was on and working. This allowed it to work for several weeks to a month before turning itself off again. He would repeat this procedure and it would work fine again for awhile.
Could be an electrical or grounding issue via SVideo that messed things up more and more?

Hope this works for you too!!

I have a Yamaha rx-v3000 receiver that lately has begun shutting itself off and then I have to keep hitting the power button until it finally stays on again. This may take 20 times of pushing the power...

Maybe a cool-down is what really fixes it, huh?

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect 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 'nekkid'. 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.

Cost is way out of scope for us to predict.

My rx-v3000 will not power up and i hear a relay clicking as long as its plugged in.

You have a short ANYWHERE in your amp.If you work with metal (espically) metal filings which can get into your amp with wind breeze, could cause a short. I personally repaired a amp with a dead bug across the power transformer (German made 25 TAP) Try this. blow a HEAVY blower inside, around, under & through the amp (PLEASE! unplug from power sourch) yea! turn the amp upside down and do it again! If that don't work...take it to a expert for diagonstic work

My Yamaha RX-V661 shuts off at moderate volumes.

Try to disconnect speakers one by one and see if any of them causes the problem.
