Lelex, maybe 5 years ago there must still be a solution toy our problem but right now, after more than 10years past the unit's first appearance in the market, no more parts for this. But you can still try in your area..

the problem with your DSP is the input selector switch only... very simple trouble but very hard to find a replacement. This is a top of the line model bro.... i have seen a lot use this in its first years and no porblem at all. after a year complains starts to comeup, switch problem all of them. the contacts of the mechanical switch is not that good easily gets loose. They modified after a year maybe and the replacement part was having gold plated contacts. If only you had it done in the early years then your units should still be in top condition. You can have it tried cleaned by contact cleaners but no guarranty to last maybe weeks only. sorryyy but unless you find a replacement then you are stuck with that problem.

Hi Lexex

Well it sound like the know what is the problem, very common on yamaha , second class unit's, mind there better then other brand that I've seen and I do prefer yamaha, I feel they take more pride in there consumer products then others big brand.
There not easy to change, you can call yamaha and order the control first to see what it looks like then know how to attack it. Some of the model they will ship the complet board you won't know until you get it.
Keep in mind there very hard to reach, you will have to take the top off, buttom off and then the intired front off just to reach the control and then replace it, I have tried to clean them but they dont' last or they cause the contract to fall apport depending on the material they used and what type of contact cleaner you have used, some or plastic frendly.... this is the one you need, you can also use brake cleaner, I find better, but they don't lubricate like contact cleaner witch has silicon lubrication in them.

I hope this help

all you need is one set of the red and white rca cables.your tv should have an audio output with a red and white hole.plug in red and white wires to those holes at the back or side of your tv.plug the other end to your auxilary red and white holes at the back of the stereo....if your stereo doesnt have aux holes then you can plug into L.d.,VIDEO outputs at back of stereo.you then turn your select button,nob on your stereo to either the aux,ld or video.hope this helps

Problem with Yamaha dspA1000


Be sure you are using the AUDIO OUT on the vcr then going into a AUDIO INPUT on the DSP A1000, this will allow the DSP A1000 to amplify the audio line level.

Yamaha DSP-A3090 sound problem when viewing movies


Sounds like a cold solder joint around the imput to the power amp stage on the board. If you can get to the board take a bright lamp and a magnifying glass to chek for solder joints that are frosty looking .If so heat them up and dab solder to make them shiny.
Good Luck
