Hi Dush

Sounds like the processor has locked up in the unit. Try powering it right down from the wall socket for a day to reset, and then retry operation. If that does not work, leave it disconnected for about 10 days to erase backup memory completely and then try again. Good luck. Don't forget to give me a "FixYa" rating if this works. If it doesn't, get back to me in here and we can talk more about it.

As simple as this sounds, try hitting the speaker a/b button on the front of the unit, next to the headphone jack. I had the same problem, and was about to package the whole thing back up and go back to Best Buy when I hit this button and then the audio test worked.

SOURCE: The subwoofer is not working on our Bose 5.1 surround speakers.

First of all you should never indicate speakers as Large unless they can produce below 20Hz (which is very low), otherwise always set your speakers to Small.

Second, did you also indicate in teh setupmenu that you have a subwoofer? Because if all speakers are set to Large some receivers will omit a subwoofer because Large indicates the speakers can reproduce all sounds even below 20Hz.

So walk through your setup menu, say YES when the sub (SFW) is asked for and that should do the trick.

SOURCE: Front speakers no sound!

Most likely you have pressed the speaker AB switch, try pressing it again and see if it works.

How to set up surround sound

Not sure what you are looking for

But if 5 speaker setup have your front left and right speakers on the appropriate side of the television, your center speaker in the middle of the tv, Either mounted on the wall or underneath or on the shelf, try to have the center speaker set back from the front speakers. Subwoofer usually I mount behind the entertainment center. Your rear right and left speakers optimum position is behind you on the left and right.

If its a 7 speaker setup everything is the same except side right and left speakers go in the middle somewhere between the right and left front and rear speakers

I will make a example the the cursors [] Speaker *TV
LF[] CT and TV*[] RF[] []Subwoofer behind tv
SL[] []SR
LR[] RR[]

Hopefully that helps

Trying to hook up a velodyne dd 12 sub to the unit. Please direct me to the correct way to do this

I have the same setup. Use 1 pair (Left/Right) RCA to RCA cable. Connect from Velodyne "Input" (left connectors) to Yamaha SubWoofer #1 Preamp output. Make sure you have the sub's volume (left knob from back) very low (full counter clockwise is "Min") until you are setting up the audio balance in your house/room. Set Low Pass cross over to 80Hz, Phase switch to 0, subsonic to 20Hz, X-over to "IN", Power to "auto"
On Yamaha RXV1 remote control, go into speaker setup and turn on Sub and any other speakers you have connected.
Warning!! do not turn up volume near a china cabinet while you are watching a movie. Everything will walk off the shelf.

Can you fix the volume button on the remote on the rx-v992?

No, it's a rubber membrane under the button and rubber "bubble pad" check ebay for replacement, not too expensive. If you need a "system control" remote, look at the Harmony Logitech series. The 620 is around 100 and the 610 is around 70. Great remotes and "Easy" to program. Hope this helps

Yamaha RX-V992 won't stay on. Starts for a second then shuts off.

Sounds like one of a few things. There is an auto protect feature in most amps and they kick on when one of the following happens. This is assuming that the speakers are plugged in when the problem happens. If not, the power supply is shot or some other non user serviceable problem is happening with the amp.
A. Speakers are out of phase B.The Speakers are way to large for the system C.There is a short in one of the speaker lines. D.The speakers are blown or shorted. E. Last but not least, the power supply for the amp is going, going gone. It could also have gotten some moisture.

Not to be redundant but try some of this. Take a new speaker wire, not the old.
1.Check the phase. For all speakers. Make it the same all the way around,
+red or white stripe, to the red terminal and -black or non striped to the black or negative at the amp and speakers.
2. Start with all speakers unplugged and plug just the right front in. Test it.
If it works ok, then plug in the second speaker, again by itself. Test it.
on and on. By process of elimination, you should be able to isolate the problem. That is of course, if it has anything to do with the speakers.

Home theater system protection kicks out

Nice write-up.

On page 6 of the manual it states you should use a powered subwoofer and the unit provides a sub output on the rear panel for it. The message from the amp kicking out is that you're not going to get away with your workaround.

I would advise you to purchase a nice amplifier (2-channel bridgeable or single channel) for the subwoofer. That way you'd be sending only LFE signals and your receiver has provisions for adjusting its volume relative to the rest of the channels. I use a nice 5-channel Carver for my 3 subs and both Rear Surrounds.

On eBay I see what I would get if I were you - a Carver M-200T (120W x2; 300W bridged). I have one.

No subwofer operation 2year old system

Some systems don't send signal to subwoofer if speakers in SPEAKERS SETUP are set to LARGE, they redirect signal to center and front speakers. Maybe that's problem.

Volume not playing

I would guess that the blinking vol lite is indicating "protect" mode. This is a case where the amp section is shutdown to prevent further damage as a problem has been found. This is usually because the amp transistors have failed. Expect $25-$35 in parts plus the local labor rate.
