SOURCE: Amp switches off at about -10db volume level

MAKE SURE NO SPEAKER WIRES ARE TOUCHING OR CROSSED, had same problem. Reciever shuts down to protect the amp.

SOURCE: No sound coming out of back speakers when watching DVDs

Make sure you have set blu ray player out put to bitstream,if you have set to pcm for hd master audio and dolby true you need to have a amp to decode this and hook up with a hdmi cable.If your amp has hdmi in and out but no high def audio you may still get multi channel audio.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: No volume in Zone 2

Get the original Yamaha remote, go to Set menu, manual setup, speaker setup, and look for "extra speaker." it needs to be set to "zone 2." This is off the top of my head, so it should be pretty accurate. Get used to doing this, though, as this amplifier assignment to zone 2 is prone to resetting itself in those Yamahas.

SOURCE: I get no bass sound from sub-Woofer connected to Yamaha RX-V465

Check your speaker settings in Setup menu / Speaker Setup / Manual / Config (and then in this submenu also Equalizer).
In Config, choose where should low frequency sound go - subwoofer and/or front speakers (if they are big enough). The settings are: Bass Out: SWFR/Front/Both.
Also check Subwoofer phrase in SWFR Phase.
Check settings of all speakers, they can be Large / Small / None. If small, frequencies lower than "Crossover" settings, will not be put on them.

I have. Yamaha rxv675 receiver. I want to lower the volume output and use individual volume switch to raise and lower speakers in zone 2. How do I do it? Thanks


Traditional method of varying volume to an extension speaker is to use a wirewound rheostat or potentiometer wired as a rheostat. Some designers preferred to use an 8 or 10 way rotary switch to select various series resistors.

You could use a potentiometer wired as a potentiometer but the choice of value must be carefully made as some amplifier outputs need to be used with a certain load and won't tolerate deviation from that.

I can't help with the values but I suggest you try some fixed series resistors around the 50 - 100 ohm range to begin with and continue until you have the volume level you want and then obtain a couple of wirewound potentiometers (one for each channel) about double that value and wound to log-law if you can find them. Linear would work ok but the adjustment you need is likely to be bunched up near the end of the travel.

Using active extension speakers would be better and provide the control you want without any fiddling around...

Receiver channel volume not identical


Remote controls normally do not adjust stereo volume levels independently, and I will assume that the problem is present on ALL input settings (tuner, CD, etc.). Check "balance" control settings, speakers and speaker wires for possible problems. Balance control at 12:00? Inspecting speaker wires and speakers do not reveal problems? Have you swapped speakers to see if problem reverses? Try this "process of elimination" and hopefully you'll ID the problem.

Yamaha rx 530 center channel cuts out


Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

I've tried using the balance for left and right speakers, and when the receiver is acting up with the right speaker having a low volume, I tried moving the balance all the way over to the right speaker. The right speaker volume will not increase in volume but the left speaker will decrease in volume.

Just to clarify, the center and the rear speakers are balanced. The issue only happens sometimes when I first power on the receiver I will have no center channel. If I leave everything alone for a few mins, the center channel will come on.

So it seems to me that something one the receiver is going. The question is, can anyone suggest a physical repair for the receiver for these symptoms?

Thanks

Can't program comcast remote to yamaha yas-101


The only thing i was able to do was to use this link and make the remote learn the functions by following the instructions on the Yamaha web site for the sound bar to AUX. YAS 101
http://faq.yamaha.com/us/en/article/audio-visual/digital-sound-projector/yas-101/7598/6609/

I then used the instructions below to volume lock the aux so that i did not have to switch back and forth from cable to aux to adjust volume and change channels
Setting Global Volume Lock
Global Volume Lock will force the volume and mute keys to be controlled by one device.
  1. Press and hold the "Setup" key until a device key blinks twice.
  2. Type in the code 993. A device key should blink twice.
  3. Press and release the device key for the device you want the volume locked to.
  4. You will get two blinks if the lock is successful.

Any Tape Out (REC) is flat Line Level output for any analog source selected by the RX-V1000.

Or you could just set up Zone 2 as on Page 61 in the manual - with or without the remote capability.

The receiver automatically pick the best configuration for the source audio. Most music is 2 channels being up-sampled to 4 channels. (Sub-out is separate.)

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.

I'm using an old Yamaha stereo receiver off my Panasonic Plasma to run a pair of E660's, can I just use the Speaker ''B'' on the receiver to run the center channel? (E660CEN)


I do not believe that you can. If you use the "b" channel for the center channel, the "a" channel will not process the left and right channels simultaneously. It is either or, not both at the same time. It may be possible to run your E660's directly off the TV output adjusting the volume from the TV, while running the center channel through the Yamaha receiver and adjusting the volume for the center channel from the receiver.I hope this helps.
