Yamaha amp turns itself off immediately

Hi,

I've got a fairly old Yamaha RX-V800RDS amp. Bought it in London whereit worked like a dream for years. It then sat in a box for two yearsdoing nothing.

I've now tried to hook it up in France. With nothingattached to the box, when I try to turn it on, straight after pressingthe on button a click is heard and the thing turns itself off.

Don't get anylights..nothing. Impedence switch on the back is fine. French elecricity is not the issue either.

Any ideas? Thanks

Dave.

    Checked the internal fuse and that is fine. The thing actually turns on (so there is power) but then switches of after a second. It's as though the security feature is kicking straight in.

    Took it to a shop, plugged it in there and it worked. Took it to a friends house and back to mine and it doesn't work? Bizarre. The security protection is kicking in. Why would it do this in one place and not in another?

You could start with checking the internal fuses for failure.Remember to unlug at the wall before touching any internals, replacing a blown fuse with power up and holding onto a stell chasis can be very unpleasant!! Check back with me here to go from there :)

    HI,
    I have the same pb !
    Iv'e bought my RX-V800RDS 10 years ago. Work very fine.
    But one week ago I've got the same pb : : when I turn on, tha amp automatically turns off.
    But if I just unplug from the wall, wait a couple of hours, then plug in the wall. Then it's OK !
    I stop it, try to restart : impossible.
    So I don't think it comes from the fuse, since it's working somtimes. Any other ideas to solve this problem ?
    thanks

I have Yamaha RX-V800RDS


After sitting that long the capacitors in the power supply can dry out and become inoperable. The first thing to check is to see if the power supply inside the stereo is working.

Yamaha rx-797 w/Yamaha ge-60 eq utilizing prein/main out ..and ad


It sounds like you want to use the external amp rather than the internal one. If that is the case, just connect the output of the EQ to the input of the external amp. All you are doing is inserting the EQ between the amp stages now. Using the mx-1 rather than the internal amp is no different.

HELP PLEASE. NAD 370 JUST DIED...


This could be as simple as a bad connection at the voltage regulator IC or blown output transistors. If you have a multimeter and some experience with electronics repair, this should be fairly straightforward.

Let me know and I'll try to walk you throught the repair.
