Question about Yamaha HTR-5560 Receiver

YAMAHA HTR 5560 KEEPS TURNING OFF

The last two nights while watching movies my receiver has periodically been shutting itself off. When turned back on, it lists "Check speaker wires". I've checked and plugged them back in, but the problem continues. It seems to be most prominent during loud action scenes - watching the movie Taken, during gun shots, it turns off!. And, it's not occurring when the receiver is in the TV/satellite mode - it just happens when movies are being played.

Any suggestions or ideas appreciated!

    Thanks for your comments, but my speakers have been hooked up the same way for six years - the unit is also well ventilated. Today, my kids watched tv for hours with no problems - this issue only occurs while a DVD is being played.

Since this is only happening when running DVD I would troubleshout surround sound speakers/ subwoofer or whatever speaker you are using when watching DVD and is not in use when watching TV:

1.) Make sure the speaker wire is not shorted at speakers as well as at receiver. Depending on method used to connect the receiver and speakers you may have short circuit even when you think you connected receiver and speakers properly.

2.) Make sure the polarity of the speaker wire matches the receiver.

Sounds like you have the polairity reversed on the speakers
and yes it does make a difference
check polairity also make sure unit is well ventelated
you wouldnt use your compouter if it was inside a card board box
so make sure the reciever can breath also
recievers get too hot and they start blowing chips off the board

Suddenly, I can only hear the sound faintly, even though it's turned up full volume on my Yamaha HTR 5560. What happened? I've played around everywhere with the converter now. Restore defaults anywhere?...


Have you checked the MUTE function?

NEVER turn the volume up more than half-way for any sound problem. Otherwise, if you suddenly find the switch that's out of position you could blow your speakers.

What converter?

What channels, what source(s)?

Yamaha 5.1 says Check SP Cable and shuts down - has been fine.


It has nothing to do with the input you choose. A speaker wire is shorted. Disconnect each one in turn and try it. The last one disconnected before it stops failing is the one.

I own this unit also and have found that it is very sensitive to speaker wire shorts. Please recheck all speaker connections to make sure you have no "stray wires" touching someplace to make a short.

Did you use Midi files when creating the Sound Track? If so your encoder may not have had the software to translate the Midi to the Mpeg2 sound track. Will it play back on other devices or just the Yamaha?
