Question about Yamaha RX-V890 Receiver

Power shuts off

My RX-V890 is over 8 years old . Ever since a recent power outage, when I press the power button the receiver lights up for around 3 seconds and then clicks off. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I bought Yamaha RX V565 4yrs ago, then after 2 years, may receiver always shut off 5 minutes everytime I open. What is the problem or reason of shutting down my receiver? Thank you

press and hold both the "DIRECT" and "TONE CONTROL" buttons and press power and see what it says on the display. This will give us some idea of what is causing the receiver to turn off.

Yamaha RX V671 will not turn on anymore after a power outage

The protection mode has activated.
Reset the protection mode as follows and see what happens.

Connect power cord to mains and wait 5 seconds or so. While holding down "info" and "tone control" buttons, press "main zone" power button briefly and release, but keep "info" and "tone control" buttons pressed for at least 3 more seconds. The unit should power up. Assuming the reason for the protection has passed or been fixed, the unit can now be turned off and then back on with the "main zone" power button to restore normal operation mode.
If the protector activates again, the fault is still present and the unit needs to be repaired, ideally by a Yamaha authorised repairer.
There are dangerous voltages present in high power amps and a lot of grunt in terms of stored energy - best left to trained technicians.

Major power surge/outage & JVC won't stay on. Clicks on and starts to cycle, then shuts down. Fuse blown? Reset button somewhere? or trashed?

If appears "OVERLOAD" before turn off, you ned change a couple of resistors of 10 ohms at 5 watts near the digital board (Optical inputs)

Yamaha rx-v800 turns off

Sounds like your receiver has a cold solder joint on the power board at a transistor or capacitor. Not a major repair, however, it will probably run $100 or so to pull it apart, hunt it down and fix the problem. Not sure of your problem with the DVDR. Do you have a "line conditioning, surge protection" unit? Not a Power strip or low end monster surge. Panamax, APC, Furman, make line conditioning surge units that keep your power steady and will shut down in case of voltage fluctuation in both directions. They cost from 200 to 2000 depending on the equipment you are protecting. It is a necessary component to any system. Hope this helps.

Receiver won't turn on. All I got is the flashing light.

Try pushing these buttons at the same timwe for a few seconds:
Advanced Surround + Enter..

'Advaned Surround' will be found in the front panel and 'Return' near the multi-jog dial.

Immediate shut

Unplug all the speaker wires first, then unplug the unit from the wall for at least 24 hours, The plug back in without the speaker wires or anything else plugged in. Then see if it goes to the protection mode. If it does not, plug in each speaker at a time, and see if any speaker, when hooked up, makes the receiver shut down. If it does shut down, My friend, I'm afraid you will need to take this unit into a repair shop, OR get a new unit. Good Luck

Yamaha Receiver RX-V630 not working (resets itself immediately)

This maybe an easy one. Have you unhooked all the wires going in to the stereo. "SP wires" means you have wires to the speakers are touching and the stereo is shutting down to avoid overloading. Hope this helps...

Yahama receiver Rx-630 not working

The problem might be caused by two major circumstances. 1)Touching wires 2)Overheating. I suggest you unplug all wires connected to the amp then turn on the amp. If it gets turned on then we know that the problem is that you have touching wires. If there is a short circuit somewhere, get rid of it. The ventilation is another important issue that you have to pay attention. It simply causes overheating.

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.
