Re: yamaha receiver/remote mute button.
Try this first... unplug amp from the wall overnight and see if it powers up the same in the morning. If the problem is still there, then unplug and leave for 10 days....I know that's a while, but what we are trying to do here is reset the unit back to defaults. One of these 2 methods will allow the working memory of the unit to be cleared, and the mute problem will go away. You WILL also loose all your station presets and surround levels settings also, a small compromise to get it working again.
Another approach is to repair the remote control...I could talk you through that also. You choose. Comment back to me here if you want to go the full method and fix the remote :)

I have had similar problems on a Denon. I suspect your DSP needs repaired and/or replaced. Need to contact authorized Yamaha repair shop or a competent local repair facility. I have a Yamaha RX-V2092 which is similarly designed. I have had it for 10 years. Hope this helps.
Per Yamaha support page:
The volume light on my Yamaha AV receiver is flashing, what does this mean ?
The "MUTE" function on your remote control has been activated. The reason that you can still hear a very low sound is that the muting circuit within your stereo is not a full mute, but rather a -20dB mute. To deactivate the "MUTE" function, simply press the "MUTE" button on your remote control. (Make sure the volume control is turned down to avoid damage to your system.) If you misplace or lose your remote control, you will have to purchase a new remote control unit, as there is no duplicate function on the front panel of your stereo. Unplugging the stereo will not deactivate the muting circuit, as the microprocessor "remembers" if the muting circuit was active prior to being turned off or unplugged. If you need to purchase a remote control, you may order one directly from our parts office. You may reach them by dialing (714) 522-9888 from 8 am to 3 p.m. Pacific Time, Monday through Friday. If you have any other questions, please contact our customer service department by dialing (800) 292-2982 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
