    I have the same problem with the same model of receiver except that it started some months ago. My son, who owned the receiver, was going to throw it out but I suggested he let me look at it. I downloaded a PDF file of the service manual for this model receiver but it must be a different revision because it has no mention of the "Over Load" light and it does have a fan which I don't have. I have checked the obvious stuff in the power supply and can not find any problems there. Someone told me that it when the "overload" light comes on in this receiver that it indicates a power supply problem but without a schematic that included the overload feature, I can't be sure if that is the case or not.

    Any help would be appreciated. Else, I will just let this thing continue its trip to the dump.

    Thanks in advance

For the past two days, the DVR is unresponsive for about 2-3 hours in the morning. The unit seems to cycle on and off by itself every 30-40 seconds or so and I hear the fan running each time. I am not...

Hello, this is Luke, let me help you on your concern. A DVR which reboots by itself always means a power failure. Try to isolate the issue first by plugging in the DVR to a good power outlet. I suggest to plug it directly to a working wall outlet to make sure that it is not a power surge suppressor or a power strip device problem. Give the DVR at least 5 minutes to boot up. Allow it to do its own thing, and it should come on by itself. You will hear a spinning sound coming off it, which is normal. Within 5 minutes you should see a message on your tv screen. A good indicator that the receiver is on, are lights on it. Orange for mode, Green for TV1 And blue for TV2. You should have at least the orange light on, when the DVR on. Do a reset if it will not power on after 5 minutes, unplug the DISH receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in. Please have TV1 on during the whole process. Let me know if this help. Have a great day.

That's one of several reasons I can think of to bypass the receiver's handling of any video I care about. I only let my receiver 'see' the audio from anything external and send it's own video to the TV so I can see its internal menus.

I don't know what can be done if your video-carrying cables are all good.

Yamaha RX-V595a receiver shuts off 2 seconds after its powered on

The first thing called out is the impedance switch on the back is not fully in one or the other position. Cycle the switch back and forth to make sure it will 'read' each setting, then turn it on.

Also make sure you if you have anything connected to its convenience outlets that they are not drawing more current than is allowed.

Did you buy it used or new?

Logitech cordless mouse is not working.

It could be the receiver is bad or the driver is not properly installed. Try to uninstall/reinstall the driver. Try also connecting the receiver into different USB ports of your computer

If same problem occurs, try installing the driver and connect the receiver into another computer to isolate the problem. You can uninstall the software after that.

If same thing happens, then contact the manufacturer to RMA the device.

Have a great day!
