Yamaha rx 596 problem

This "mid fi" receiver's about 7 years old. All of a sudden, the left channel is trebly & tinny and has no bass. The right channel is bass heavy & muddy & has no treble. when the volume is turned all the way down, the tinny sound still comes out of the left channel.

Its not a speaker problem because its also happening with the "B" speakers in the other room. And it happens no matter what the source- CD. phono, radio. I checked all the connections in the back & everything's in fine.

I guess its probably shot but anyone got any ideas before I go & gget a new receiver?

Yamaha RX-V365 Receiver, Yamaha NS-AP2600S(BL) Speakers


Make sure the speaker select switch is on "A or B or AB. It's a small button on the front panel of the receiver (pen sized) and will give you visual feedback on the LCD display. If they are on, you need to have the unit bench tested at an audio shop and possibly repaired. Hope this helps

Hi, I have a Yamaha RX-V596 that all of a sudden developed a hum throughout ALL speakers, it is coming from the receiver. Any idea how to fix it? Thanks, Adam


reconnect all wires (make sure are placed in correctly) and make your connection with wires kind of tight (no druppy wires if extra coil it up) between devices....your receiver should have small wire hanging this is the antenna and the other wire should be grounded...and should take care of the humm....

I get no bass sound from sub-Woofer connected to Yamaha RX-V465


Check your speaker settings in Setup menu / Speaker Setup / Manual / Config (and then in this submenu also Equalizer).
In Config, choose where should low frequency sound go - subwoofer and/or front speakers (if they are big enough). The settings are: Bass Out: SWFR/Front/Both.
Also check Subwoofer phrase in SWFR Phase.
Check settings of all speakers, they can be Large / Small / None. If small, frequencies lower than "Crossover" settings, will not be put on them.

Left channel a bit fuzzy and lower volume than right channel


If the unit has other inputs, try running other source into those to determineif in the receiver or the power amp section.

Then use heating and cooling with cool mist to check components on the boards.

It is LIKELY a bad electrolytic capacitor

How do I turn On/Off my RX 596 reciever with my Yamaha remote ?


Press the Standby/On button on the remote or on the receiver (right below the Yamaha logo) to stop the audio output and display. The RX-596 goes into a low power standby mode when not in use; this allows it to respond to the remote when you press the buttons. If you want the receiver's power use to go to zero, you need to unplug it from the outlet. (You could also use a switched surge protector and push the switch to off.)

See page 9 (page 11 in the PDF) in the manual for the details on the On/Standby switch. The manual is available here: http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000057561.pdf . The page is also available here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/197512/Yamaha-Rx-596.html?page=11#manual .

I hope this helps.

Yamaha rx-v2200 sound problem


Hi Zanthena - my Yamaha rx v 2200 is doing exactly the same thing - did you manage to track the problem down? I have had my unit in for repair and the fault occurred again 6 hours after I re-installed it.

Any help would really be appreciated!

Rear Surround speakers


Best thing to do is to put the unit in 5 channel or 7 channel mode. That will send left ch information to the front left and rear left speakers ( both will get the same information). Ditto with the right channel. The center channel will get centre channel information.

If all the speakers work, go out and rent TOP GUN. ( yes its old), BUT there are a few extreme scenes , one of which is the elevator scene, where the camera changes perspective and suddenly you hear the elevator doors close BEHIND you through only the surround speakers ( have the unit in surround mode....NOT 5 or 7 ch mode ). If this works ok, then you have no problems.

Remember, surround sound only produces information in the rear channels when the information is there. To check out the digital and DTS decoders, get an action flick. If you can, get a remote too, because that will unlock many features about the receiver that you cant get to with the front panel controls. Also go to yamaha and download the owners manual ( its free !!).....that should get you going.....

best of luck...

RX-V2090 Bass Output Problem


A couple things to check on the no bass problem:
1) Make sure your center speaker is set for normal, not large.
2) Make sure your speakers wires are in phase (+ conn. to + and - conn. to -).
