Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver

1 Answer

No display info on receiver

Just bought a yamha receiver RX-V661 7.1 and after conncecting all of the speakers I noticed two problems. 1. No display; I could get the radio, Dvd and Satellite TV to work with a little sound but no display light. 2. Back surround speakers no sound. I checked and rechecked all connection. I attempted the Auto Setup with the optimizer, but again no display lights and it stated Video monitor will display blah blah, What video monitor. Help

    Thanks for the info. I did plug my video monitor(TV) to the rear of the Yamaha, using the HDMI ports. I then attempted to use an alternative connection by using the YBR and S video and nothing. No LCD display. Thanks for the advice. I will take the receiver back.

Try plugging a video monitor AKA your TV into that monitor output connector on the rear of the yamaha.
Select video in on the TV and see if anything shows up from the yamaha

Sounds though like the receiver has serious issues. If you can get your moeny back , do so

I just bought a used jvc rx9010. it powers up but no sound from any speaker and shows headphone all the time what should a layperson check???


No speakers are selected if just headphone is displayed. Press the speaker button just under the power button. No station is tuned when auto muting is displayed. Hook up an antenna to the receiver or use a different source like a cd player.

My Yamaha RX-V563 receiver displays "Check Speaker


Look closely at the rear connector panel of the receiver and look for pieces of stray strand wire that may be touching the speaker A binding post and the receiver chassis. If you are not using strand wire connection to the binding post then check whatever connector type you are using such as banana plug or spade plug for breakage or corrosion, the same goes for the speaker cable itself which isn't always so easy to detect. A few broken strands can cause a problem.
If it is clean, turn off the receiver and disconnect the speaker cable. Check the binding post for tightness; if you can wiggle it then it is broken and needs to be replaced.

make sure you're using the corresponding speaker inputs for speaker 1 (only) and turn off Speaker 2 on the bottom left corner near the headphone jack (it should be sticking out further then the speaker 1 button). hope this helps.

Check the settings on receiver in the SETUP menu / HDMI / Audio. Here you can choose Amp (sound goes from the speakers connected to receiver), TV (receiver is muted and sound is routed via HDMI to TV) and Amp+TV (sound goes from speakers and also to TV).
Also check in OPTION menu / Signal Info that receiver is receiving sound in recognized format.

Yamaha rx-365 reciever not showing all speakers


I,m not familiar with the Yamaha but most receivers are set up the same way. In your setup menu are the speakers marked on in the display?. Your DVR needs to be transmitting in 5.1 to start with. If this is the case then make sure you select the correct audio function on the receiver.

Yamaha RX-V663 display is not working


If you have your receiver hooked up to a TV or Monitor, press "Menu" then toggle to section "5" "option menu" and check your "Dimmer" setting "0" is highest. Then check "FL Scroll" and the choice is "Cont". This info is on page 96 in your manual, if you don't still have a copy, here's the link

Hope this helps. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I will help you further.

Voices drowned out by background noise.


Not a suggestion, but I hope there is a solution.
Recently bought an LG HDTV that has a setting that should increase the voice over the background. If it does, I can't notice the difference. I guess they can probably measure it electronic.
I've had your same complaint for years, without a good solution. Best so far is to use headphones.
I have no idea why film people add all the extra noise. Most of it is not even real.

JVC RX-884VBK RECEIVER


The JVC RX-884VBK is a great machine, I had it for over 5 years and had no problem at all. I came across the (NO SOUND at all) and I believe it is an easy fix. Check the Front left, there are 2 keys marked 1 and 2 for SPEAKERS output, sometimes you don't notice that you connected the speakers to 1 and the 2 key is pressed. You could have both keys pressed and you will get the sound. I hope that helps.

No Sound


Three things to look for for the no sound problem:
1) Make sure the pre-out main-in couplers have jumper wires in them
2) Make sure the mute is not engaged
3) make sure the speakers wires are inserted properly. you need to unthread the five-way binding posts before inserting the wire between the post nut and receiver.
