Re: yamaha receiver RXV-1400 turning off after 3 seconds.
Hi there are several reasons, but the most common is because a high power trasistor is shorted, most yamaha receivers use the same names for the failure signals, such as PRD, PRI, PRY The PRI is the signal that "tells" to the microprocessor that something is wrong with the power amplifier stage. so my recommendation is that look with the ohmeter a power transistor shorted usually if one if damaged, the next one or complimentary is too, there is a small transistor between the two big ones, usually is the number is D1915, if this is damaged, USE the SAME, also look for resistors damaged, specially the low value like the big white this resistor is 2 in 1 and some times just one resistor opens.

Check it without speaker connection. If the set does not go to protection mode, check all the speakers by connecting one by one at a time and switch the set ON; to find the faulty speaker. If the set goes to protection mode even no speaker connected, check and replace damaged components at its audio output section circuit. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

How to reset yamaha HTR-5650 AV receiver (maybe others) to factory default settings:
1. turn power off. 2. press the 6ch input and stereo button simultaneously for 4 seconds. Then while holding down these 2 buttons, turn the power on. 3. press preset tuning to the right until option #9 is selected. 4. Then, press program button until the *RV option is selected. 5. turn power off, wait 10 seconds. 6. turn power on, settings are reset.
First do not panic by seeing all sockets in the back side of the receiver.You can connect 5 speakers and one subwoofer on the speaker A switch and maybe a second pair of stereo speakers on the B switch.All the speaker sockets have red and black terminals, so do all speakers. Just get decent cables ( You can buy a whole connection Kit if you want ) and connect the corresponding outlets to you speakers.If you have a powered subwoofer connect the subwoofer input to a socket labeled Subwoofer pre out on the RXV. You will need a RCA to RCA cable for that Next you will need a coaxial or Optic fiber cable to connect a DVD player digitally. The back of the DVD player will have a socket marked coaxial out, and so does the RXV's backside. Just link them . Turn on the system everything should work. If you are not getting DVD sound there is small button on the RXV front panel called Digital input -- set it to auto ( keep pressing the button and it will scroll through various modes). Also remember to switch on speaker A on the front panel.
1 Hold down STEREO on the Front Panel
"Factory Preset" appears on the front panel
2 Press STEREO to select the desired setting.
'Reset' To reset to factory presets
'Cancel' to cancel without making changes
3 Press STANDBY/ON to confirm your selection
After 6.5 hours, I am now listening to music outside on my patio using my rxv-1600! Connect your speakers to the Presence Zone 2(3) output on back. Then power up amp and select zone 2 on front of amp. Nothing will happen, because as I found out, you must route an input to zone 2 or 3. Which is cool, because you can listen to something outside that is different from your inside. You select what to route to the zone by pressing Zone Control button, just right of zone 2 and 3 button. While you see red zone light blinking, rotate input select knob to prefered input, i.e. radio/cd/aux/etc... also, you can adjust volume by pressing zone control and turning up the volume knob, only while ZONE light is blinking. hope that helps, i know i was frustrated figuring that out!
