Question about Sherwood RVD-6090R

1 Answer

RVD 6090R Stopped working after a very brief power outage.

My electricity went out for a few seconds. Now my receiver goes on, but is not recognizing any speakers and no sound. I plugged it into an alternate socket, I checked all my audio cables and speaker cables. I unplugged it for over an hour to revert to manufacturer settings. Checked the tv and cable settings, but no go.
Is it gone for good or is there hope.
Appreciate any help I can get.
Thanks much

    Hi Robotek,
    I am very grateful for your advice. I do think it is a fuse. I am very good at connecting electronics, but have never gone inside of one. Is it worth investing in the ohm meter and the fuses or to buy a new one. I dont have much money. Can only really go to $100. Where would I get the fuses or can you recommend another new or good used home threater receiver with a coaxial connection. (need for divx machine). Another Sherwood (under 100 at Radio Shack)
    Very grateful for your time and help.

Hi cleitner . It has most likely blown a mains power fuse. You will need to FIRST DISCONNECT FROM THE POWER. Then remove the lid and check internal fuses. Best done with an ohms meter to be sure that you don't miss any. Some fuses can look ok but be faulty. Replace any blown fuses with one of exactly the same type. If you are not sure what type of fuse you need, feel free to get back to me here. Good Luck, thanks for using FixYa

    Hi again, I should say that you could check for any blown fuses before doing anything else, they are often very obviously blown, just suggested the meter to be sure they are good... as I have in the past come across fuses that look good and are actually faulty. Go for it, pop the lid off and check them out. If you replace a fuse and it blows again...then that is a more involved repair. I am hoping in your case a blown fuse is all it is. Good luck, a FixYa rating would be great for my advice:) Feel free to ask me more questions.

Power outage so Yamaha htr3064 won't turn on. is there a reset procedure for this receiver?

Unplug the unit for 30 minutes and try again. It may reset. If you had a power cut, there may have been a surge just before the power went off and electrically damaged something in the unit.

Yamaha RX V671 will not turn on anymore after a power outage

The protection mode has activated.
Reset the protection mode as follows and see what happens.

Connect power cord to mains and wait 5 seconds or so. While holding down "info" and "tone control" buttons, press "main zone" power button briefly and release, but keep "info" and "tone control" buttons pressed for at least 3 more seconds. The unit should power up. Assuming the reason for the protection has passed or been fixed, the unit can now be turned off and then back on with the "main zone" power button to restore normal operation mode.
If the protector activates again, the fault is still present and the unit needs to be repaired, ideally by a Yamaha authorised repairer.
There are dangerous voltages present in high power amps and a lot of grunt in terms of stored energy - best left to trained technicians.

Stand by button flashes but receiver wont turn on

I have vsx-d812 that has an AMP ERR in error menu. the troubleshooting was found to be Q696 and Q697 in the DC prot. area on "C" board, up near front toward diplay in center of c board. You can get access to error codes on VSX pioneer unit by pressing "enter" and "adv. surr." simultaneously for 2 sec. The display should show what error code you are experiencing. I believe there are three diff. error codes. 1) AMP ERR 2) OVERLOAD 3) BOAD ERR (not mistyped) I hope this helps pinpoint error code for ya.
