Question about Yamaha HTR-5240 Receiver

1 Answer

Yamaha HTR-5240 Receiver channels are mixed up

No matter what input channel I select, can still hear whatever is actively playing; if I happen to have two items playing (for instance vcr and dvd player), well, both will be audible thru the speakers. Also the tuner stopped working. Is this something easy to fix or should I start shoping for a new unit? Any help is highly appreciated

Sounds like your input switching IC is bad. THis is a shop job,major solder work and most likely a parts order. All the inputs tie into 1 intergrated circuit"ic" and the microprocessor see the signals and switches the output on this IC when you change inputs and when this IC goes bad you can have an outward symptom of not switching,only 1 input works or 2 or more inputs on at the same time. If this receiver cost several hundred dollars it's worth repair if less expensive unit you may want to look around for a new unit

My yamaha HTR 5240 comes on for like 2 seconds and then turns off


That proves the audio output stage is shorted on or two channels. It will need to be checked out to assess the situation.

I accidentially hit a button on the remote on my Yamaha receiver, now there is no sound coming out of the speakers on the surround sound


Examine the indicators on the panel carefully. I'm sure a clue is there. Maybe a wrong source, mute, speakers off, tape or 6-channel input activated?

Select FM, tune a station, leave the volume set midway and use THAT as a troubleshooting tool. Eventually, you'll find the switch or button.

Trying to hook up my yamaha eq-70 to my new htr-5063


You don't. No tape loop or other place to insert it between the analog sources and the amps for the front channels.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Yamaha-HTR-5063-Receivers-manual/id/23658bh532/t/2/

You'll notice on page 22 they don't show a return (playback path) from the 'audio recorder' or the VCR. That's a clue that there's no tape Rec/Playback loop, which is required for any external audio processor.

You can send analog audio out OR you can accept analog audio in, but you can't do both at the same time. Sorry.

Just the same, IF you had a Tape Loop or could break into a Pre-Out/Amp In slot...

The following is some boilerplate I made up that should explain some usage limitations.


Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop on most late-model Audio/Video Receivers (*) will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.


* But not the HTR-5063.


The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.


In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).


Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.


The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.


EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.


In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? They would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.

Okay, back to the hook-up IF you had a Tape Loop:


Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Rec-In;


Receiver Tape In (Play) - from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Amp-, Play-Out.


So, to sum up, you can only use the EQ or any outboard processor for analog stereo sources. If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer

Lux Audio 5.1 home theater speaker & Yamaha HTR 5540 AMP


configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only.
make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer.  connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.

HTR-5240 short circuiting


First i would strongly suggest that you review your wiring, since the problem occurred after those change , It might also be just coincidence. When you are playing something(music) go around and listen carefully to each of the speakers, check for muffled or distorted sound, that could indicate a speaker or wiring problem. Of course the problem could also be in the receiver. The protection circuit in your amplifier could be acting up(too sensitive), in that case you might need the help from a local repair tech.
Hope this will help Good luck

Yamaha HTR-5750 no sound when I turn to the DTV/Cable setting


If you are not getting sound on "Any" input except "multi channel" you have a bad DSP chip in the receiver.In short, you need a new receiver, it's a 500.00 repair. If you get sound on "All" inputs except "DTV/CBL" You need to get into the main menu of the Yamaha and select audio, toggle to input, then DTV/CBL and select "Auto". If you still do not get audio, it would be due to the version of HDMI software in your receiver. If it's under warranty, Yamaha will update hardware and software for you at N/C. If it's out of warranty, use digital coaxial or optical as your audio input for TV and run your HDMI directly to the TV. (The repair for this too would run 250-350) I hope I've covered all the possibilities. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you more.

Left from speaker not working- Yamaha HTR-5940-6.1 channel


Redbird,

What do you have in the "multi channel input" jacks on the rear of the receiver? Those inputs Right, Left, Center, Surround R+L, and Sub are used when selecting 6 channel mode. They bypass the receivers surround processor board.

HTR 5790


Hi,


Yes, you would need an iPod to RCA Cable that will connect to your iPod and to the RCA Auxilliary input of the Yamaha HTR-5790 7.1 Channels Receiver. Similar to a Cygnett Groove Transit - MP3 Phone to RCA Stereo Cable or an iPod to RCA Retractable Cable.


Good luck and kind regards.
