Re: back channel turn off and on

Same problem with the 2.1 channel DRA-297. All sound cuts off and screen reads h/p input. I don't even know what that means. What's wrong here?

When it happens, the receiver makes a clicking noise. it goes back and forth from being on to h/p input shutdown. sounds like someone repeatedly flicking a lightswitch.

Thanks to whoever can help!

Denon receiver not working surround output

If everything is connected correct, the only thing I can think of, is you don't put in a surround signal. If you only feed 2 way stereo, only two speaker will work. Also if you switch to stereo, the other channels will stop working. Check the cables, the settings and the input.

Digital input glitch, switches randomly from analog to digital.

what connections do you use for the device you are listening to, and what device are you listening to when this happens. you should use either an analog, or a digital connection to a device, but not both

Yamaha receiver picture disappears and reappears when changing volume

I had the same problem with HDMI input to the RX-V373 from a DirecTV receiver. The RX-V373 volume display and menus on the screen are HD only, which forces the monitor to switch modes when viewing SD.

My solution was to turn off 480i and 480p signals from the DirecTV receiver, and also turn off its native output. The DirecTV receiver then upconverts SD signals to HD. Changing RX-V373 volume then doesn't affect monitor video mode.

Pioneer VSX-1015TX 7.1 Receiver AMP ERROR I just recently started getting this AMP ERROR message when I try to change input sources, it does not matter which source I click on, for example, whenever I...

I would recommend checking your speakers polarity ( + on the + - on the - ). Also check to make sure the wires are not touching each other where they connect to the speaker or amp. Also check your input connections if you are not using HDMI or Optical. Worst case is you have to send it in to get serviced. Hope this helps

STR-DE835. White noise coming ferom right rear speaker when DVDs are played. Twise the word "PROTECT" has been displayed.

IF any other source plays fine with the RR speaker, and IF it only happens with the DVD player and IF you're using the 5.1 analog audio feeds to the STR, maybe the audio on that channel is **** from the player. You could prove that by temporarily swapping the RR input from the DVD to any other channel input and test it at a medium level.

If it stays with the DVD RR output, the player or the cable would be suspect. Swap in a different cable and make sure it is not routed uniquely near any sources of magnetic fields, motors, UV or track lights, etc.


If you're using digital input all that advice was a waste of time to create as there is nothing external to the chipset that could affect one input channel. Try a different digital input on the STR.

RX-V1600 when i turn on no sound or channels display on

If you are sure that the speaker wiring is correct and connections are good, then:
  • Check the input and output connections are correct for each source.
  • Check that the input mode is not set to DTS or Analog - rotate the input selector to the source and the press the input mode, set it to Auto.
  • Also check that the front speakers to be used are selected A or B (or A+B).
  • If there is an optimiser microphone supplied with this receiver, ensure that it is not still plugged in.
Hope one of these solutions work for you.

Bad main right channel ( no out put at all )

I had the same issue with this same receiver. Unfortunately this is a known problem with this receiver and Yamaha knows about it. The usual fix is to have the input RCA connections in the back replaced to some updated ones. What has happened is that there is a shirt created using the current RCA input jacks and it is actually turning the internal amplifier off to that particular channel or channels. My local stereo shop ( who is a Yamaha authorized service center) knew about this and replaced mine to the tune of $200.00. Good luck

Sherwood R 525 memory loss

Same thing happened on my R-925RDS. The memory backup capacitor in this case is C322 on the front panel PCB, over on the far left hand side by the mains power button.

In the case of the 925 it's a 0.047F 5.5V capacitor, a small black block approx. 10mm high with 10x5mm footprint. In the service manual it's referred to as 0.047uF, but this is incorrect. Replaced it with a 0.1F 5.5V memory back up capacitor, all's well.

If replacing the capacitor, BE CAREFUL where you mount it! Putting a standard (round) backup capacitor in the exact location of the old one may bring it very close to the mains switch. What I did instead was mount mine about 2 inches closer to the centre of the board, using double-sided tape, and ran wires back to its connection points.

Yamaha HTR-5240 Receiver channels are mixed up

Sounds like your input switching IC is bad. THis is a shop job,major solder work and most likely a parts order. All the inputs tie into 1 intergrated circuit"ic" and the microprocessor see the signals and switches the output on this IC when you change inputs and when this IC goes bad you can have an outward symptom of not switching,only 1 input works or 2 or more inputs on at the same time. If this receiver cost several hundred dollars it's worth repair if less expensive unit you may want to look around for a new unit
