HTR-5240 Will not play audio when switching to DSP

When I switch the effects off, I can get analog audio ok, but when switching to any of the DSP fields, there is no audio. We've had some storms a while back that might have caused this issue.

I tried resetting it by setting to standby and unplugging it for a while but still nogo. Thanks.

Most likely your DSP board is bad, usually a pretty costly repair and sometimes the board is hard to find in stock.

First i would strongly suggest that you review your wiring, since the problem occurred after those change , It might also be just coincidence. When you are playing something(music) go around and listen carefully to each of the speakers, check for muffled or distorted sound, that could indicate a speaker or wiring problem. Of course the problem could also be in the receiver. The protection circuit in your amplifier could be acting up(too sensitive), in that case you might need the help from a local repair tech.
Hope this will help Good luck

Yamaha HTR-5240 Receiver channels are mixed up

Sounds like your input switching IC is bad. THis is a shop job,major solder work and most likely a parts order. All the inputs tie into 1 intergrated circuit"ic" and the microprocessor see the signals and switches the output on this IC when you change inputs and when this IC goes bad you can have an outward symptom of not switching,only 1 input works or 2 or more inputs on at the same time. If this receiver cost several hundred dollars it's worth repair if less expensive unit you may want to look around for a new unit
