Re: My reciever turns on for about 4 seconds then clicks...

First, unplug and replug in the unit to reset everything. Second, check each cable for a short using a multitester. Each speaker cable should show a few ohms of resistance. If either open or a dead short...there's the problem. Not it? Get service.

My denon avr1200 receiver once it is turned on goes into Protection mode. How do you reset or make work?

The reciever will go into protection mode when there is a short in the speaker wires or the amplifier was overloaded. What I would do first is verify that none of the speaker wire connections are loose at the back of the reciever or at each speaker. And verify that none of the wires are making contact with each other. Then label each speaker wire as you remove them from the reciever so you can re-install them correctly. After you have disconnected the speaker wires try unplugging the reciever for 10 to 15 minutes. Most recievers have a self-resetting overload protection switch and this should reset it back to normal. Now try plugging the reciever back in and turn it on without the speaker wires connected. It should be out of protection mode now. If it is still in protection mode verify that there is not a reset switch somewhere on the back of the reciever. If it is not in protection mode now then proceed to connect one speaker set at a time and turn on the reciever to see if it goes into protection mode. If it goes into that mode after connecting a speaker then that speaker is the cause of the problem. If it does not go into the mode after all speakers are connected then try turning the volume up. If it goes into protection mode then there could be an internal short on the amplifier or a incorrect OHM rated speakers connected to reciever. Verify that the speakers are rated the correct OHMS.

System turns on but only hear feedback fomr speakser no sound

do the headphones work?that means the pre amp is working.
the speaker protection is maybe activated from shorted wires on the back,there should be a click 5 to 7 seconds after turning it on.
that is the relay that connects the speakers.check the speaker a and b switch. people are not aware of this,but alot of amplifiers ADD the a and b speakers,to prevent too low an impedance from parallel wiring.unless there is 4 speakers,no sound.

Reciever wont stay powered on

I fear that there's no easy fix. Sounds like the power supply or the board which controls it is bad. If you're not an electronics repair person, it'll need to go to a repair shop.

Yamaha rx-v461 not working

you have a faulty circuit somewhere, whether its in speaker wiring, or power source, i dont know, but your reciever has an automatic circuit breaker in it for protection, and a faulty circuit will trip it, i would assume it is a power source problem since it wont turn back on, check wiring, plugs and look around, and smell for burnt, or hot components.

If you look at the manual, there are steps detailed to reset the receiver. This usually happens if the receiver becomes very hot. Try resetting and you should be okay.
The other problem is short circuit on the speaker wires. Check the speaker wires again.

first you have to test separatly your speakers outputs
disconnect all wires speaker and speakers, turn on your reciever and look if you still have the same problem «CHECK SPEAKER WIRES alert» if yes you have to go to a specialist to fix it... if no test one line after one line with and without speaker connected until the problem reappear to locate the bad line or bad speaker.
