Yamaha DSP A-1000 input selector switch not working properly

Hello, my aging A-1000 still works good except when playing DVD movies. It appears to be a lose contact at the input selector switch. If I giggle with the input selector switch the sound comes back for a while. But it repeats the problem by "no sound from right speaker to static sound" and it is annoying especially watching movies. I recently made the DVD input in the back of the unit to LD (because A-1000 was made pre-DVD era, I have been using TV/DBS as a DVD source.) It now works better than before, but still the problem comes back. The strange thing is this rarely happens when playing music CD thourgh the same DVD player (effect off). Would you agree that it is the input selector switch that is the problem? If so, where can I get a replacement switch? Thanks.

As that unit is well over 5+ years old, I seriously doubt the part is available any longer. I doubt that you will even find a used part, and even if you do, it will probably be as bad as your switch. As I have worked on audio for over40 years, I would use LPS 2. It is a lubricant. Do not try this with WD40 or similar. Just spray the LPS on the wafers, or through any open holes in the switch. You just need a little. If you just squeeze the button, you will see just a little bit of foam. That is all you need. No more; no less. Rotate the switch from from left to right and back again multiple times. Try that. BTW, no manufacture uses these mechanical switches any more.The controls are now called Rotary Encoders, which basically are inputs to a display microprocessor IC(a computer within the new product) which in turn controls the inputs of a switching IC. It's the same as your old switch, just electronic, and much more complicated. If you need more information, or would like to inquire about repairing your unit, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.

    On some receivers, this may be muting. On others, it may be a sign of DC Offset(a damaged amplifier). You can try a factory reset, a procedure found in your owner's manual, but I doubt that will fix this condition.

Flying yeti.... yup... it's definitely your input switch. im from yamaha service before at saudi arabia. that is a normal trouble specially in high humidity places. you can only get a replacement at yamaha service though. their newer model are better they dont use contact switches nomore.

    FlyingYeti...Yamaha has produced their replacement switches with gold plated contacts. That was done after about a year of production of the model. The original switch has got the lead coted contacts only and does not work long enough. It was a major fault on this series of DSP using mecanical switches and yamaha engineering has revised the contacts for longer perf. Order your input switch and have it replaced, it will work well again and will last longer. DSP A1000 is one of the best

Yes Yamaha haven't made good contact switch yet, I don't know when, I've seen lot's of yamaha with bad switch and volume control, It's easy to get parts I find with yamaha, not like the other brand that sony's sales, contact yamaha help desk and they will dirrect you to the parts dept. , you will need a credit card and you won't be able to get the part.
To find there # go to www.411.com or in googles type yamaha.com

I hope this help's

Amp plays sound through previews of the movie - but NOT when the movie starts??


This sounds like a problem with the DSP chip. Turn off any DSP and surround modes in the unit and see if it at least plays in stereo. You may need to unhook the DVD player from the 5.1 inputs and put the front left/right into a CD or TAPE input to fully test this theory.
If that doesn't work, I have a VSX-D309 that just came up for sale (sorry, no remote)

Hi. my YAMAHA DSP-A1000, works well only the input selector does not to select. its all static noise and does not seem to lock onto an mode. i have to use the tape 2 monitor to hear music.


The INPUT SELECTOR is defective. Order part number VT148000; it costs $51.04. As of 14 Jan 2011, the part is on backorder until the later part of Feb 2011.

Register online to order the part yourself, or you can place your order by phone at the Yamaha Parts Department at (714) 522-9011 or (888) 892-6242, Monday - Friday, 7:30 am - 5:00 pm PDT.

I hope this post also clarifies the problem from the posts above.

IMPORTANT: After installing the new Input Selector switch, place the knob at 1230 position (between LD and DAT/Tape 1) BEFORE turning the unit ON. The Yamaha Tech said this procedure ensures the input source is properly programmed and aligned.

I have a Yamaha Natural Sound Stereo Receiver RX-750 (purchased maybe around 1992-1993?). The input selector switch doesn't seem to be working properly. No matter which input I select, the sound is fuzzy...


Hi cfipp
You could fix this problem with a quick squirt of CRC 2-26 into the function selector switch connected to the knob you are wriggling. This will sort out the problem. If you need further advice, feel free to ask me. I will help you.
