Question about Yamaha R-V1103 Receiver

Volume knob blinking

I woke up one morning and the volume knob was blinking and I cannot get sound. I looked for a place for a fuse in the back but no fuse obvious. The amp appears to come on without a problem - but blinking light on knob with no sound.

Any suggestions?

Mackie 450, signal light off, Sound only comes out when amp. turned up above 75%, when usually used at 40-50%. too loud at 75% and UP, does not Work at ALL below 75%. only 2 years old, with 25 uses... i...

Doesn't sound like a fuse. They don't fix themselves when you reach 75%.

Try shaking the volume knob while in the 30-50% range and/or try (with the power off) rotating the volume knob numerous times from 0% to 100%. If when you plug it back in it responds ANY differently, you might have a bad volume potentiometer. If when you shake the knob you hear static or intermittent sound, you have a bad volume pot.

The only other thing I can think of is that the wiper of the volume pot is not in contact with the windings inside the pot until you reach the 75% mark. When the volume comes on at 75%, does it start off kind of "static" then come in loud and clear? Also try this.... adjust the volume pot to 74% (or when the sound just begins to come on). At this point shake the knob. If you hear static, replace the volume pot.

Unplugging it when still on shouldn't cause any damage... in fact it probably hasn't considering it works at 75% plus.

Kenwood A722L no sound and volume led blinking

This could be due to a faulty speaker relay (if your unit uses one). Normally, the unit will "wait" a couple of seconds after you turn the unit on. Then you will hear a "click" and the sound will begin coming through the speakers. If the relay is faulty, it would cause the problem you describe.

No left chanel in audio

If you turn the Balance knob all the way, do you hear anything at all?
If you hear scratchy noise, pull the knob out, and place a couple drops of WD40
onto the shaft of the balance knob. Repeat process with the Volume control.
Twist the knobs back and forth several times.
If no help there, then move on to fuses. Some receivers have fuses, either on the back panel or inside. This should be easy to check. A blown fuse will often be black or discolored, and you can sometimes
see a wire inside that is no longer attached.

Volume not function.

You need to be a bit clearer on the exact nature of the issue.
Please include if the unit was working and suddenly stopped producing sound (ie - speaker output fuse blew) or if you relocated the unit, and after hooking it back up, you aren't getting any sound (ie - not hooked up right) or if the volume knob isn't changing the readout for the volume level (logic or knob broken) - and also include the make and model of WHAT the volume knob is attached to (ie - Yamaha receiver model X)

No sound, volume knob is blinking

On the bottom of the remote on right side, right next to the master volume - key . it is actually called muting instead of just mute. Hope this helps.

Yamaha RX-V800 volume knob on receiver not working.

It sounds like the volume control pod has gone bad and needs replaced (The knob shaft connects to the pod main body and the inside of the volume pod is what controls the rate of volume,If the inside becomes worn ,broken or dirty the volume will become erratic) Replace volume pod ! ..You may try cleaning by taking off the volume knob and getting a can of pressure air and blowing the dust out!
Please rate response!!

Volume Control

The volume control shaft lube, over time and heat exposure, will flow down and corrupt the contact between the volume twister and the spring loaded sensor. Pull the cover off the tuner, locate the volume control and take out the two screws holding it in. It looks like a small circuit board with the volume twister attached.
The base of the twister is hooked to the circuit panel by four metal tabs. Pry these guys gently away and pull the twister free. There will be a metal disk at the end of the volume control shaft, and will have a goopy lube residue on the face of it that can be cleaned with electric contact cleaner or some other kind of solvent. Wipe it clean,(do not immerse) reattach, and test. Worked perfect for me.
Good Luck,

Volume light blinking, no sound.

Plug in some headphones as they are usually always active and see if you get any sound and volume control of them.
if not the switches may be stuck .
or the output fuses blown.
it gets sticky to work inside one of these without electronics experience and you can do more damage.
The fuses are about all you are allowed to fix.

No sound

Hi guys

It sounds like the unit has locked up from a power flip type situation. I suggest powering the unit down completely overnight and then fire it up again in the morning and see how it behaves. Some of your system menu presets may have lost their settings and may need to be setup again also. Get back to me here if you have the same condition after doing a full reset in this manner.
