    I do have the same problem,
    after some time it suddenly works but not consistent when switched off again. I cant find loose wires.

  • Anonymous Mar 26, 2014

    DSP-A2 fully disconnected from power. The only connection was optical input from a Sat
    Receiver. After a lightening the Amplifer switching on, after 4 seconds getting off.
    Any body can help ?. A fully check up shows
    Any of the components are not faulty.
    If a current flow throug optical cable may be
    Stored in protection circuit, how can I reset it. Please help me.

No display at all in your front panel?

you said power supply is ok... all voltages...
i remember DSPE300, small power amp only IC. can you check your +/- main power supply if ok it should be around +/- 35V. If it's there then place your meter neg to speaker ground, the + to red and try to run on the unit. see if you'lll get a pulse in AC meter mode. Or a DC voltage in DC mode.
then check also your secondary supply that's about +/- 15volts. Your standby voltage for the CPU to work is 5V. please check that as well

If the trouble is main amp, you should still have a display screen. Unless it is a total breakdown and main out totally shorted, it really wont turn on but you said you seem to find voltage.

See Page 73 Troubleshooting.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Amp turns of after 2 seconds of turning on

It is going into protection mode, and shutting itself off. You have a short somewhere. I would suggest taking it to an authorized service center for assistance. This is not easy to diagnose, as it could be anything causing the short.

Try disconnecting everything from the unit, including the speakers, and turning on again. This will just confirm that the problem is the amp, and nothing external. Also, try connecting it to a different power supply/socket.

Puchased A Yamaha DSP-A1092 Amp from Auction turns off

I doubt it. Sounds like it is going into protection due to bad output transistors or some such. Time for a trip to the repair shop it sounds like.

Yamaha DSP-A3090 sound problem when viewing movies

Sounds like a cold solder joint around the imput to the power amp stage on the board. If you can get to the board take a bright lamp and a magnifying glass to chek for solder joints that are frosty looking .If so heat them up and dab solder to make them shiny.
Good Luck

No center main volume

Make shure your initial setup on the amp is for center as an active speaker,then to check volume on center at zero. Possible to check speaker and wires for open or short.BIGRED

Amp powers off after switching on

The DSP-A1 has an internal self diagnostic program which you can access from the front panel. The service manual shows how to do it and what the readout codes mean as far as the fault that caused the trip. Service manuals are cheap and readily available on the web.
