Question about Yamaha RX-V1600 Receiver
Asouth, I'm curious if you have solved the problem with your receivers? It sounds like the same problem that I am having with my RX-V1500. I would appreciate any response that you would have to this inquiry.

Get another receiver! I had the same problem and had the power supply replaced $250 and after 3 months it started doing the same thing. I just purchased a Pinoeer Elite VSX 90TXV.

The unit is in protect mode. There is a problem with the last stage of the amplifier section and the unit shuts down to prevent further damage. The most common cause if this is shorted output transistors. If you are comfortable with soldering, you should be able to repair this. Check the transistors attached to the heatsink for a shorted condition. Replace them in pairs.
Keep us posted.

I suggest you run self diag. press [FM/AM] key + [Input mode] key and press the [power/standby] switch.
ps prt = power supply problem
dc prt = shorted output or leakly cap in channel
tmp prt means to hot on heatsink
you'll likely have to measure the resistances of the output FETs to find a short,

When it shuts off, does it display anything on the front like "ck speakers" you could have a shorted wire or bad speaker. Sounds more likely than a bad receiver. Yamaha is pretty bulletproof in "self preservation" circuitry! about the only thing that takes them out is lightning and major power surges. I have been selling and installing Yamaha receivers since 1995 and have only ever seen one with a problem that was unrelated to power. and I've done hundreds. If your not using HDMI, and the Video portion of the receiver, I would definately keep the unit $ 1500.00 is no cheap receiver. Try disconnecting the speakers, then turn on the unit with a source connected like cable/sat/fios on then crank the vol and let it set, if it cuts out, yes you've got a problem internally, however, I would stronly suggest metering all of the speakers and wires for shorts. There is an internal fuse as well right near the power cord, you have to pop the top to get to it, If you have a multimeter check the fuse with resistance tone. If you get tone, you have a good fuse if not If you need to replace it. They can be found at Radio Shack etc. If the fuse is OK, chances are you've got bad transistor(s) and needs to go to service. Repair should be under 200, well worth it. If you have further questions, post a comment and I will get back to you ASAP. Hope this helps

Does it work without PS3 attached?
When receiver turns off, it is usually due to badly connected/configured speakers. Try powering on the receiver without speakers.
