Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver

2 Answers

I cannot make any changes to my Zone 2 -- cannot change the volume or change the setting from what Zone 1 is on. A blinking symbol that looks like a mushroom appears when you are trying to switch between DTV / Tuner / VCR, etc in Zone 2.

    Disconnecting the receiver and related components from the power source did not resolve the matter.



    The receiver is indeed a Yamaha RX-V661. It has 2 zones. One zone is the surround sound speakers in my living room and the second zone is the speaker in my kitchen. I used to be able to, say, have the living room set to surround sound for a movie or tv while I listened to music in the kitchen. And I could control the volume in each room separately. Or I could have Zone 2 on in the kitchen and nothing in the living room. Now I cannot do any of that. The only way I can have sound in the kitchen is to listen to whatever is on in the living room - the volumes are the same, too.



    Got any suggestions?



    I did not set up the stereo originally. I bought the stereo from Tweeter who installed and programmed the stereo. They are since out of business. My toddler has punched all sorts of buttons on the stereo so I suppose that is where it has gone wrong. My husband says he has seen a message that says Zone 2 is "locked" but we cannot find anything in the manual to un-lock it.

Maybe you needs to be reset on factory default settings. This process is mentioned in user manual and will clear any wrong selection that put receiver zone 2 speakers on volume fix.

  1. Press Master ON/OFF on the front of receiver to turn it OFF;
  2. Press and hold Tone Control, then press Master ON/OFF to turn unit ON. Unit will show advance setup menu, rotate Program selector to select Preset;
  3. Press Tone Control few times to select Reset;
  4. Now press Master ON/OFF once again, that will confirm reset selection and unit turns OFF; and
  5. Turn on unit by Master ON/OFF button and receiver is set on factory default settings.

Review the Yamaha RX-V661 User Manual (page 93) for more details.

Hope helped with this.

Hi.

Looks like the the unit is locked to region 1.

The Yamaha receiver you listed is region free, therefore I assume you are talking about a different unit, in that case give model please.

If you have the problem with a Yamaha RX-V661, then simply disconnect power cord for ten minutes. And disconnect from power all devices connected to the receiver.
This should reset the system.

Let me know in case it does not work.

Regards.

I had a similar problem where I could not increase zone 2 volume - Page 100 in the manual notes that 'power amp assign' must be set to "7 Ch + 1 zone" before zone 2 max volume can be changed. Try that.

I cannot hear any sound out of my Polaroid TDX-01930B television.


Hello
First make sure that the "Mute" function is OFF. If it is set to "ON", no volume will be there.

Your TV has a volume lock function included [Global Volume Lock].

The remote comes preset to allow independent volume control of each selected device (Global

Volume Unlock). However, you may change the Volume Lock setting to Global Volume Lock so that

one device's volume will control volume in all other modes. After that, you can perform Individual

Volume Unlock on a selected device to set its volume control for independent operation or Global
Volume Unlock to remove all volume locking.
Locking Volume Control to One Mode (Global Volume Lock)
[1] Press and hold SET UP until the red LED blinks twice; then release.

[2] Enter 9-9-3 and then press the mode key for the device you want to control volume (for

example,TV). The LED blinks twice. Now when you press VOL+, VOL-, or Mute, the selected
device (for example, TV) will control the volume regardless of the current mode.
Unlocking All Volume Control (Restoring Global Unlock)
[1] Press and hold SET UP until the red LED blinks twice; then release.

[2] Enter 9-9-3 and then press VOL+. The LED blinks four times.
Volume is now independently controlled for all programmed devices.
Unlocking a Single Device's Volume Control
[1] Press a device key (TV, VCR/DVD, CBL/ SAT, or AUX).
[2] Press and hold SET UP until the red LED blinks twice; then release.

[3] Enter 9-9-3 and then press VOL-. The LED blinks four times. Volume is now
independently controlled for the selected devices.
OK

I have a Yamaha RX V665 and I am unable to change the volume


The volume keys should be working by default, but you may have volume punch through turned on (meaning the remote is sending signals for TV or CABLE volume function no matter what mode you are actually on). To unlock volume control for AUX mode, do the following:
1. Press and release AUX
2. Press and hold SETUP until the remote blinks twice
3. Type 993
4. Press and release VOL-
The remote should blink four times to confirm unlock.

YAMAHA AV receiver RX-V861 I have the message 'Vol-fix' appearing on Zone 2 and no sound. This was working fine until then


Setting the RX-V861 remote control to operate Zone 2:
  1. Using a ballpoint pen or similar object and press the [CODE SET] button RX-V861 remote control. The[TRANSMIT INDICATOR]on the remote should flash twice.
  2. Using the [NUMERICAL KEY PAD] on the remote and key in 9992, the [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] should flash.
Assigning the receivers internal amp for Zone 2:
  1. Set the remote control selector to [AMP]. (Located to the right of the volume buttons on the Remote.).
  2. Press the [SET MENU]button on the remote control.
  3. Arrow down to Manual Setup and press the Enter button on the remote control.
  4. Arrow to the [SOUND MENU] option and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  5. Arrow to Speaker Set and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  6. Arrow to the EXTRA SP ASSIGN and select ZONE2
  7. Press the [RETURN] button on the remote control to exit out and return to the Manual Setup.
NOTES: There is an option for setting the Maximum Volume and Initial Volume in the Zone Set menu.
  • Max Volume: This is an optional feature but isrecommended to prevent the accidental change in volume levels thatcould damage the speakers and receiver.
  • Initial Volume: This is also a great feature that would seamlessly start the volume level for the second or third zone at the desired level.
We do not recommend using any Speaker Selector boxes to enable more than the recommended number of speakers per terminal.
Controlling Zone 2 using the RX-V861 remote control:
  1. If the Main Zone on the receiver is on, press the [POWER BUTTON]down and while holding that button down press the [PHONO]/[**] button on the remote. The [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] will light up.
  2. You will not be able to use the following buttons on the remote: (Pressing any other button will cause the remote to exit Zone 2 mode. [POWER], [STANDBY], [VOLUME], [MUTE] and the [INPUT SELECTOR] buttons [DVD], [CD], etc.)

Zone 2


If you are using an external amp, "fixed" is what you will see on the Yamaha's display when you want to change the volume. If you are using the power of the Yamaha's Zone 2 outputs, you need to go into the "Menu" then "Manual Settings" then "Options or Zone 2" and set it for "Int" That will solve your problem.
