    If it does not shut down when disconnecting. What then?

  • Angel_Uriel Feb 01, 2008

    For some reason the unit shuts off every time I switch inputs, change channels on my satalite box, try to do anything with a DvD, or even fire up my playstation...If the Satalite box stays on one station the turner will turn on and stay on and all speakers are working...It seems odd to me to be having this sort of problem...I mean sure the tuner is old, but to be working early in the day, get turned off for a few hours, then be messed up on the next powerup...Have tried working it with the speakers unplugged but that doesn't seem to make a difference...

    I have a Yamaha RX-V2500 that is several years old now. I went to power it one day after just using it only hours earlier, but this time, it wouldn't stay on.

    Immediately shuts off after turning on.

    I disconnected everything but the power, issue persists.

    I checked some of the outputs with a meter, and the ones I tested were all OK. I haven't taken it apart any further to test the outputs that are burried deeper, but I have no reason to believe that they would be shot.

    Is this a common problem?

Got the same problem and did some searching.
Strange thing is that next day the amp works fine.
This is what I found on

SYMPTOM: The power cannot be turned on, or the protection circuit is activated to turn off the power.
CAUSE: Fluid leakage occurs from the backup capacitor C633 0.047F 5.5V (C662 in the case of RX-V3000/DSP-AX2) on the Function PCB and causes a short with the adjacent components and between patterns, resulting in operation of the protection circuit. Fluid leakage tends to occur with this capacitor particularly with high internal cabinet temperatures, with or without the power on. Often, the leakage is only visible with very careful inspection.

SOLUTION: Two types of backup capacitors are now available with a longer expected service life. When servicing, thoroughly clean the leaked fluid from the PCB and from under any nearby components before replacing the capacitor. There are models other than those mentioned above that use the subject backup capacitor. Check them for fluid leakage and replace the capacitor as needed.

The amp is blown. Unhook all speakers and try it again. If it still shuts down it will have to be repaired.

    If it appears to operate normally while the speakers are disconnected, then the amp is probably ok and the problem is a blown speaker (which sends the amp into protection). If you don't have a DMM to test the speakers then you could reattach one at a time until you find the one that causes the failure, but you risk dameage to the amp if it doesn't shut itself down fast enough.

My 32000 btu unit lights and runs when it reaches desired temp and shuts off the pilot stays on and you hear a click then a minute later a second click and the pilot light shuts off.

The clicking you are hearing is the gas valve trying to open but because the pilot light is out the valve shut back off. Sounds like the thermocouple is bad on the unit. The thermocouple sits net to the pilot light and allows the gas valve to open. Hope this helps.

Proscan 40lc45s won't stay on

Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

You are going to make me guess!
I am guessing you have to hold the start button down.
Try a new start button first.
If that does not fix it, replace the timer/control unit.
God bless your efforts.

The central air turns on, but does not cool. The fan outside of the house is not moving. Is there a switch I need to use to turn the outside fan on?

There should be an electrical box next to your exterior unit. Open it up and there should be a pull handle on an electrical bridge. Usually when it is turned one way it will make an electrical connection and if it is rotated 180 degrees and plugged in it won't make an electrical connection.

I have a 2001 stratus and the horn doesn't work. When I press the horn I hear a clicking sound. The fuse is OK, what's the problem

The clicking sound you are hearing is the horn relay engaging trying to supply power to your horn. Most likely horn itself needs to be replaced. Locate horn underneath in front near grill. With test light check for ground & with someone pushing on horn switch, check for positive. If you have good ground & power when pushing on horn switch need to replace horn.

Dryer won't stay on

The motor centrifugal switch is not switching from the start winding to the run winding. The switch should stay in the run winding when the motor picks up speed unless power to the motor is interrupted or cut off. The switch is replaceable on most dryer models but sometimes it is an integral or built-in part of the dryer motor and failure of the switch requires the replacement of the motor. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer for more accurate troubleshooting and repair advice.

the switch unit on these washer driers has a habit of coming unclipped from th econtrol panel..try turning off the power and pushing on the back of the switch(pushing towards the front of the machine.)if it clicks you may have just repaired the prob.just dont push the button too hard.

Kvm switch won't stay on second computer, switches back

You might try disabling any power saving schemes in use on either computer. The KVM (I believe) gets its power through the ports and one computer may be shutting down power.
