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?

Re: Turns on then shuts down

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.

Reciever shuts down by itself

Hi, i have similar/same problem, on initial power on, you have after 3 -4 secs an audible click from inside and all is good... if you then try to change inputs either via front panel and or remote, the unit switches off. if you change input prior to audible click, ie within 2-3 secs of power on , all is good and amp works fine, until you change input etc...very painful fault.. i thought it is sensing /checking the speaker outputs and detecting short etc ,so powering off to protect.. but then just my thought, i suspect something else, if anyone has the fix and can repair , please let me know.

I had a similar problem. I have RX-V2500. No power to it when plugged it. Unplug then plug in again. Everytime you hit standby you get a click, which happens three timesand then no clicks until you unplug and replug.

I popped the cover off and just inside, where the power cable attaches, there was a white fuse. I think it was a 10A/250V (I'm in Canada), but read what the spec is on your fuse. I replaced this and it worked just dandy. Believe me - I was as surprised as the next guy.

Anyhow - hope that helps.

Obviously make sure it isnot connected to the power supply at all when you remove the cover.

Turns off when i turn it up

Does it power back up after it shuts down, if it does power back up it is unlikely it is an internal fuse, you would need to replace the fuse if that was the issue, could be an amplifier overload, check the demand your speakers require in watts, and be sure the right ohm speakers are being used, many receiver will display "overload protection"and shut down, and some just un-power to prevent a electical short from occuring.

No power

disconnect everything from the unit and see if it still does it.
if it does i would check the output transistor (ic).

Power shuts off after 2 or 3 sec.

please remove all speaker from receiver-volume down and test if the receiver shut down it needs to fix in service center-if not insert speaker one by one until you find the bad one-change its cable first and then change speaker itself.
