Yamaha HTR-5170 amplifier shutting off & not powering up

Hi there - I have an Yamaha HTR-5170 amplifier that has been shutting down on me intermittently& I can not figure it out. After checking all the connections, speaker wires on the all 5 Bose speakers & impedance it still will power off on its own. Sometimes it will not even power up & stay on it just keeps shutting off. This unit was taken to an authorized Yamaha repair shop & it was worked on for a week & it never once shutdown on them. They said they ran it through many tests/loads & it is working well. Well, no it's not...I can not listen to the radio, play a DVD or watch a movie on the satellite dish in 5.1 surround. Maybe this information will help solve my problem, I just recently bought a Samsung 60 inch DLP HDTV & since then this has been my life with my amp. Please help, Sammy

    Does it trip when all electrical connections to the DLP HDTV are removed?

I agree with Jango. Go back to the setup when it last worked. If adding the DLP is the problem, you may have some sort of a ground loop formed between the TV and the receiver. good luck...Rob

How to connect bose 901 to yamaha htr -6090

Sorry, it doesnt look like you can hook up an external EQ while still using the amplifier section of the yamaha. Instead, You would have to use the preamp out to go to 901 EQ, out of the EQ into another stereo amplifier, then to the 901 speakers. Personally, to power the 901's properly, I'd use another external amplifier. You will barley get 35 watts per channel out of the receiver to power the 901's

How to connect a turntable connected to a yamaha a450 stereo amplifier...can I attache the a450 to the htr-6130 ?

If the turntable is newer kind you can connect it in any Stereo input like CD, VCR , etc.

If the turntable is older model you can only connect it to PHONO input (if amp has one) and make sure earthing cable is connected on Amp

Remember input is only stereo (unless your model has digital input) and select sound effect eg Pro Logic for enhanced sound,

My yamaha htr-5640 receiver will turn on for a sec then a small click and then shuts speakers hooked up....what is the deal?


With the power off, try to disconnect every component and then power on the receiver. If it still shuts down, then it is an indication of an internal error and the unit needs to be serviced.

I have a yamaha htr 5890. I would like to hook up

You are probably connected to the pre-out jacks. These are not amplified. Connect them to the B speaker outputs(screw down connectors). If that won't work (and it should), you can connect to the "Presence" speaker connections(spring loaded connections).

HTR-5740 Subwoofer Hooking Up Issue

You can use a hi-level to low-level adapter. Just remember, the Yamaha does not send power (wattage) to the sub, just signal. You need to use a subwoofer that has an amplifier either externally or built in.

Yamaha HTR-5830 Video shut down.

You have having a problem with the video amp clipping the signal after it get hot. You have one way to try to temporarily solve this problem. Try putting more air flow over your receiver and cooling down the temperature inside the receiver and see if the video amplifier starts working correctly. If it does then you must put a fan on it somewhere that will keep the air flowing so the video amplifier is not allow to overheat. If this does not solve the problem, then you will need to have the amplifier replaced for it to work correctly. If the unit is under warranty then call this number 1-800-492-6242 to locate a service center in your area. Call them for help with your problem. You can also try looking on the website. Put in you model number and check in the frequently asked questions and troubleshooting sections for people who have had similar problems with this unit and see if they printed a solution for the problem. I hope this helps you with your problem.

HTR-6130 will not turn on

Remove all speakers from the receiver and try powering it up again. If it still shuts down odds are it needs repair of one of the output channels.
