Re: Won't power up


It isprobably caused by a corrosion on the plug. When your amp doesn't get enough juice from the mains it senses it and trips.

Try cleaning it with contact cleaners or just sand it a little with any sand paper. Hope it works as well with you as it did with mine.

Yamaha home theatre system RXV 350 amplifier

Check it without speaker connection. If the set does not go to protection mode, check all the speakers by connecting one by one at a time and switch the set ON; to find the faulty speaker. If the set goes to protection mode even no speaker connected, check and replace damaged components at its audio output section circuit. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Open the unit and inspect for cold solder connections. Use a non-conductive tool to poke the circuit board for the bad connection. Please keep in mind that when you do this, the unit has to be powered up - be cautious of the live circuit.

Hello, it is worth checking that there is adequate ventillation around the unit, especially if it is in a cabinet. Also check that there is no dust clogging the vents on the unit. Another cause for overheating is using speakers that require far more power than your receiver can provide, or speakers with an ohm rating that is lower than the amplifier provides. Also, check to see if any wires to the speakers are crossing over as shorting will cause the amplifier to overheat and cut out. Hope this helps.

RXV 995 SUB output is DEAD

If there is a real failure in the Sub Output it would indeed be unusual. I'd still sift carefully through all of the settings. The Sub Out is very likely to be its own unique channel so I would try something that bypasses multichannel decoding entirely, like plug in something low-bass-rich to the Subwoofer (IN) at the External Decoder area on the left rear of the unit. Press Ext. Decoder and see what comes out of the Sub output. This bypasses all DSP and could prove if the Sub Out really does work.

Does it not work in speaker level setup either? That at least would eliminate any source issues.
