Re: yamaha reciever will not power on

If the receiver is completely dead, the problem could be as simple as a blown fuse. If there is no visible fuse holder on the back panel, you'll need to remove the cover. There should be a circuit board near the rear of the chassis where the line cord attaches. You should see a small glass fuse held by clips on the circuit board. Visually inspect it for a break in the small wire inside. Alternately, check it with an ohm meter. If the fuse is blown, replace it with the same amperage fuse rated for 250 volts. (The amperage is engraved on one of the metal ends i.e 0.5A). Before replacing the fuse, do a visual inspection of the other components on the circuit board looking for any signs of burning or overheating The over voltage may have damaged other components, in which case you'll need to take it in for service or scrap it. Most Yamahas have a separate standby supply. If yours has this, chances are pretty good the damage is limited to this area. If the main supply is damaged, it may not be worth fixing.

R Hold,

Do you know the the pin out / diagram for these receivers? I have an HTR 5940 and I have no speakers plugged in and it shows "check speaker wire" and then will not power on at all. I can hear the standby clicking. There is no visable capacitor damage or signs of overheating. The fuse is good.

Is yamaha ampli rip off ?

I have not personnally had any problems with any yamaha recievers, or surround processors that I have ever purchased, and they continue to operate these decades later. The fact that they have pre-amp outputs for all channels was a major determining factor, as I could then use other amps with more power for expansion. make sure you have a surge protector for your ac power supply, that has been the biggest source of problems with any piece of a/v equipment

My reciever turns on then shuts down htr5930 thanks

check the connections first. Probably it is going to the protect mode since the chances are there the speaker terminals are shorted or something else is shorted. Check the speaker connections first and ensure the power connection is fine and you are getting the rated power from your AC socket too. Still the problem persist you need to get help of a qualified technician or if it is under warranty, contact the service centre.

There is no sound on my powered sub

Since you have a powered sub, the feed to it is a line level signal. If your unit is only 6 months old, it should still be under warranty. Check. If it is under warranty, have it repaired under warranty. Otherwise, update this and we'll dig deeper.

Sorry to have to tell you but that means there is a short in the output circuit or the power supply. I would bet that one or more of the output componets are bad. If you know solid state circuit troubleshooting, It still may be worth repairing. if you do not then most likly it is time to get a new unit.
