Re: HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey there snowbumswerd, a power surge may have caused the problem you are experiencing. Some higher end receivers will protect themselves from damage by setting off a breaker switch. The breaker should reset if you unplug the unit from its power source for one minute, and plug it back in. This is the easiest of all fixes. The next option is to check inside for blown fuses. Please ensure the unit is completely powered down and disconnected. They may not be obvious so look carefully. Also you can check your capacitors. They are the tube shape things that look like small batteries sticking off the board. If the top of any of these has lost it's flatness or erupted, then that is your problem. You should use a professional if this is the case. Relatively simple to fix and therefore inexpensive. Hope it helps. Good Luck!

The receiver shuts down when zone 2 is turned on

Disconnect the speakers on Zone 2 and try to turn on the receiver again. If the receiver works, there is a shorted speaker wire, pinched wire, or a blown speaker on zone 2. Good Luck

Won't stay on

You're best bet would be to buy compressed air and blow out all dust and dirt that has made its way inside the receiver. If dust is clogging the fans it will overhead and shut itself off.

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?

Powersn for 1-2 seconds then shuts off

The receiver is going into protection mode. Try removing all connections i.e. source inputs and speaker connections. If the problem still continues your problem is internal and would require a trained service tech to troubleshoot and repair. More than likely the switching power supply or amplifier output is overloaded.

Does it work without PS3 attached?
When receiver turns off, it is usually due to badly connected/configured speakers. Try powering on the receiver without speakers.

I got the same problem with my Denon AVR-2105/885

Your receiver is going into protection. The first thing to do is disconnect all speakers at the receiver. Unplug the power cord, then let it set for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and power it on. If it stays on, you have either a wire shorting out at the back of the receiver, something that has pierced the speaker wire en-route to the speaker, a wire touching the other at the speaker or a blown speaker.

Speaker wires should only be trimmed about 1/2" bare at the terminal and make sure you twist the braid so it does not fray. Then connect speakers one at a time, testing the receiver power each time until it either shorts and cuts out, or, you have solved the problem. Hope this helps. If you need more help, post a comment and I can help you some more

After turning in my receiver, it immediately turns back off.

Sounds like it's going in to safe mode. This can be caused by a number of things but the first thing to look at is a failed output amp.

Start up it gets to receiver on the displayit shuts off and Power indicator starts fashion red to green

Having too loud sound cannot damage the unit, the loud maximum sound is design for that unit, when its brand new one or 2 years old its okey.But when 2 to 3 or more years when voluming the maximum the it create a vibration that cause the "solder crack" and results intermittent sound goes on, goes off, that is your problem. You open the unit and got to supply section reheat or resolder the resistor, capacitor diode, transistor and most of all switching IC. when finish, go to audio section, do what u did in the supply section.Bear in mind not tosolder it causes trouble. When reheat all the solder, your unit is good as new.
