Re: yamaha rx-v3300 av receiver

Old amps with no display (no computer) are repairable for ever, but when the display goes out like in yours - it is pretty much not economically repairable. You can look inside for any obvious damage (black or blown parts) but thats doubtful. Check the voltages on the power supply. Should find 5v, 12v maybe a negative voltage. Could have lost a voltage regulator in the power supply causing the digital circuits to be down. good luck

Have a Sony 32" Bravia TV & Yamaha RX-V5000 Receiver. Unable to get the sound to come from the Stereo speakers connected to the RX-V5000 if watching TV. However, can get the Radio to play through the TV...

You probably want to connect the av Audio output from your tv and connect to the RX-V5000. The audio that you are getting from Radio through the tv is probably coming from the output of the RX-V5000 coming to your tv, to which the desiredd route is the other way.

The Outputs at the back should be labeled to tell you which channels are inputs or outputs.

Hi, try powering up the unit with out any speaker connected if it still goes to PROTECT try factory reset if possible.
To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults, turn it on and, while holding down VCR/DVR, press ON/STANDBY. "Clear" will appear on the display and the AV receiver will enter standby mode.
If this does not fix your problem you should take your unit to service . :)

I have a Yamaha RX-385 receiver. I want to increase the number of speakers I can use from the receiver. I am considering buying a speaker selector that says it can connect 4 sets of speakers I can run to...

This speaker selector is standard accessory equipment for home audio equipment -- just follow the instructions with the unit.

The speaker selector unit has circuitry which prevents the amp from being overloaded by connecting too many speakers in parallel to the receiver. The receiver will have to be run at a higher volume level to drive all the additional speakers at the same volume as two sets of speakers, but this will not damage the amp in so doing.

Yamaha receiver problems

If you're using the same turntable on both I'd say you see the smoking gun. I doubt it actually killed anything. Perhaps the cartridge wiring or connections on the TT are flaky. What type of TT is it?

Was it working normally before all of this?

I would like to know how to connect my Bose 901 to my Yamaha RX-V765 AV Receiver.

Ahhh, the good ole Bose 901. (I like those)... And you want to connect them to the Yamaha RX-V765 AV receiver. That should be a piece of cake. I assume you only have two Bose 901 cabinets. If so, you simply need to connect one end of your speaker wires to the terminals found on the 901 cabinets, and the other end of the speaker wires need to go to the Front Left and Front Right speaker outputs of the RX-V765. The RX-V765 is a 7 channel surround receiver. Weather you run it as a 7 channel theatre or as a more classic 2 speaker configuration, you will want to run the 901 cabs from the Front L and Front R speaker outputs, unless for some reason you want to specifically use them for any of the surround channels in which case it will not harm anything if you use them for surrounds - it's just that if you're simply wanting to use them as your principal speakers, you want Front L and Front R.
So connect them as I explained, power the receiver up, put on your favorite CD and enjoy!

My yamaha receiver LCD screen dose lit when power up

Is it an RX series receiver?

I've repaired 2 of these recently with the same problem you have.

There's a very small 14 volt bulb that fits into the hood on the back of the LCD display.

It's about 0.15 inches in diameter and will need to be spliced into the existing two pin cable ( after you cut out the bad bulb)

Yamaha RX-V461 receiver audio

Disconnect the unit from the mains at the wall socket. Leave powered down for 5 mins to ensure a good reset and turn unit on again and see what happens. If there is still no life. Check for failed fuses inside amp. ALWAYS RELACE FUSES WITH THE SAME RATING AND TYPE.
