Yamaha R-V98 Stereo Receiver

My Yamaha R-V98 stereo receiver won't stay turned on for more than a few minutes before it shuts off. There is a "Sleep Timer" function that doesn't seem to have any effect, no matter what I set it to or turn the function off.

Re: Yamaha R-V98 Stereo Receiver

If you are running two low of an impedince (sorry i can never spell it right) or anything that runs under 8 ohms, which some speakers depending on the frequency will shut it down,
i have the same receiver and had the same problem,
it ended up for me that my center channel wasnt 8ohms,
the man A and B speakers will run ok at 4 ohms,
but the center channel is really picky,
hope i helped man,

or if that isnt the problem,
ive become familiar with mine inside and out

My yamaha stereo receiver powers down with in seconds it wont stay on

there is most likely a short in the amplifier section that needs to go in for service. Try disconnecting all speaker wire from the back of the receiver and power it on that way. If it stays powered on, then you have a shorted speaker or wire. If it still shuts down, then it needs service

Whats wrong with my stereo

How old is your HK receiver? The power supply capacitors can get old and tired, and cause the hum and shutoff. Repair is an option.

When on FM tuner, stereo stops playing after a few minutes

Right then sounds like the connection from the aerial lead into the receiver - check out the socket where the aerial plugs into!

Is it loose at all or could there be a bad connection inside the unit.
Get the cover OFF and investigate yourself before you rush down to that very friendly repair man along the street.

Yamaha r-v98 turns on and immediately goes off. I haven't changed anything lately. It was playing then went off. Now it will not turn on for more than a few seconds.

Disconnect all speakers at the receiver then turn it back on, if it stays on, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot further. If it still shuts off, it sufferred a power spike and needs to be serviced. They will replace 5-6 caps and 2 or three other parts, roughly 250 or so. Hope this helps

Yamaha rx-v663 receiver worked only one week. next time i went to play stereo as soon as i turned it on it only stayed on about 2 seconds then shut down. i am able to try three times with same results...

The click is the autoprotection relay that should be allowing the amp to stay up. Try this... turn the speakers off if you can, or disconnect them then try again. Safety shutdowns are usually either heat or short circuits in the output stages. It doesn't stay up long enough to get hot so...

If it stays up withou the speakers on then the problems is probably external and easy to isolate.

Let me know.

Yamaha Receiver RX-V630 not working (resets itself immediately)

This maybe an easy one. Have you unhooked all the wires going in to the stereo. "SP wires" means you have wires to the speakers are touching and the stereo is shutting down to avoid overloading. Hope this helps...

Won't stay on

If you have the service manual there is a section that shows you how to get the protection mode history with the codes. You can also reset all of the protection from the service menu listed above. Be careful in doing so but have fun if your fed up with it not working.
