The receiver sound shuts off

I have loved this receiver, but the receiver sound shuts off when listening music and there are some deep bass tones in the song. I can then turn on the receiver again, lower the volume and usually are ok. Any idea what could be causing this?

There is a problem with the receiver that is allowing DC voltage to get to the output amp section. This is detected and the protection circuit shuts down the receiver. Yamaha uses coupling capacitors between sections to prevent this. If one of these is defective, it would explain your symptom. This should be a relatively simple repair for a repair shop. Expect $10-$25 for parts plus the local labor rate.

I set up my RX-V365 recently, and the center speaker doesnt seem to work. i use it for listening to music, the sound should come out right?


Sound from a speaker, nah, that's an optional feature (kidding).

If you dig into the manual annd go through the setup using the test tones you can prove/disprove the viability of all the speakers and channels. THAT is required before we try to listen to 'music' (assumed 2-channel) on multiple speakers.
Sound Field programs (page 25) can be applied to just about any source. Experiment, even within a given recording. You'll be amazed how different digital processes can make even familiar recordings new and more interesting. I've discovered instruments and sounds in old recording I never noticed before.

I have a KLH 700watt home theater reciever that wont stay on!!


Sounds like it is overheating. Try one or all of the following:

Remove anything that may be stored on top of it. Unblock the vents.

Connect speakers with a higher sensitivity rating.

Move it to an area where it has more airflow around it, ie; not in a closet or cabinet.

Disable any bass-boost and equalization, or tone controls.

Set any crossover settings for any subwoofer you may have connected, to a higher frequency.

Decrease your listening volume.

How do I use the remote to cont bass & treble for rxv-657 reeiver


No, Tone controls are on the front of the unit only. If your passing video thru the unit you can go into the setup menu from the harmony and adjust all the sound parameters that way "on screen" The only "EQ" capabilities are for the Center channel only. You can adjust "speaker size". "Large" setting will give you a little lower response. "Small" will crossover the speaker at "100hz" That's about as far as tone adjustment goes on this unit. Hope this helps

My Denon AVR-1802 is permanently stuck in tone defeat. The display actually shows that the tone defeat can be turned off and on, but the tone controls, ie. bass and treble do not alter the sound in any...


Is this only when using external inputs? The manual says the Tone Control will not function in Direct Mode. Try Stereo and various DSP surround modes to see if the Tone Control works.

Denon receiver shutdown


Try turning down your tone controls. Like your bass, treble, or your equalizer. If you hear too much tinny or hissing sounds, the treble has to be turned down, or turn down the upper bands controls on your equalizer to the optimun level. If you hear too much bassy sounds, your bass control has to be turned down, or the lower band controls has to be turned down to the optimun level. If you are planning on turning the volume up, you may have to turn down some of the tone controls to the optimun levels, otherwise, your receiver may shutdown, or you may blow fuses in your speakers. Also make sure you speaker wire polarity is hooked up right. Red wire on the + red terminals, and the black wire on the - black terminals. Also don't have the volume turned up too high to the point where your receiver would have clipping or distortion, or else your receiver may shutdown, or you may blow fuses in your speakers.

If this don't help, then there may be something wrong with your receiver or your speaker.

Receiver shuts off at times


There is some leakage of DC voltage getting to the output section. DC voltage will cause the protection circuit to kick in and shut down the amp. This should be a relatively simple repair and cost about $15-$30 in parts plus the local labor rate.
