Question about Yamaha RX-V2090 Receiver

1 Answer

Turns on then shuts down

My 2090 will power up for a sec., then shuts down. I took the cover off and checked the fuses, 3 that I can find and they are all good. The small board that the switched and non switched plugs are on has a small transformer that looks like it got hot enough to boil the varnish a bit. Could this be my problem?

    Thanks, I removed the speaker wires, and it still kicks off. On that small board I mentioned previously that small transformer looks like it mated with a relay and that is were the click is when it shuts down. Is this receiver worth digging into more? Its nice and I payed $1500. ten or so years ago.

    I have the same problem with it turning on and shutting off. I do not have a short in the speaker either. nothing on the power inlet bd. is wrong. Where can I get the schematics or do you have any other suggestions?

It sounds like the amplifier protection circuit is kicking in. This usually happens due to a fault in one or both channels. Check that your speaker wires are not shorting out - try removing them and switching on.

Samsung TV no sound no picture backlight on and off

Check voltage at the power board. After 120 volts enter the TV, there is fuse then a small high voltage transformer, then a 100 uf rated at 450 volts capacitor. There should be 390 volts DC at the capacitor. Without this 390 volts the TV will shut down.

Samsung 5203 won't stay on

If power LED at its front panel is ON, the fault is with its main board. If it is OFF; the fault is with its main power regulator board, and related connection sockets. Check all the connection sockets, for any loose connections. Re-insert all of it once, and check. Contact any service technician.

My lcd 1080 proscan turns off after 30 secs

I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:


1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have tobuy and try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.4_2_2012_6_15_28_pm.jpg

GMP050-3 heater, gas turns on and lights for 5-7 seconds and just as thr igniter goes dim the gas shuts off. after 3 cycles the erd LED flashes on/off at a 1.5 seconds on and 1.5 sec off Gary

After the gas turns on, it is the flame sensor's job to see that ignition took place and send 24v to the gas valve. If it does not do this, the gas valve shuts down as a safety precaution. After 3 tries, the furnace will go into "lockout" and will not let it attempt to start again. The lockout can be resolved by turning off the power to the furnace for a couple minutes and then turning it back on. Sounds like the real problem is a faulty flame sensor not sending 24v to the gas valve. Sometimes they can be cleaned with a piece of sandcloth. This will cure failure to recognize the flame due to carbon build up on the sensor. Otherwise, the sensor will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Sharp Lcd Projector XV-H30U

check to see if you got the covers for the filters in the back and the side? if you dont have the cover for either of these it will not power up it only turns on for about 2 seconds and then it dies. it has a switch that must be pressed in when the covers are on. without the covers it only powers only slightly. you can jimmy rig it if you dont have the covers. try puting in something that is nonmetallic to depress the switch if your missing either th back or the side cover.

Mitsubishi WS-65313 - Will not turn on

The most common failure are the two convergence integrated circuits part # 267P173010. The two pico fuses may be open as well, which come from the power supply and provide +24 volts and -24 volts.
