The cost???

These types of questions are nearly impossible to answer without an eyeball on the unit, if even then.

If it's just the physical connector (are you sure?) and its solder points are fairly accessible, probably cheap.

After that, who knows? Andwe don't know how much you would spend on a replacement receiver.

I'd take it to a technician and get an opinion.

How do you replace a coax antenna port that was pulled out from the back of the tv


On most sets the tuner has to be removed for this to be done-a new fitting or a new tuner can be installed.

If the set has the standard RCA audio and video jacks for input you can hook a cable box or even an old VCR to those and BYPASS the coax fitting--hook up to those inputs--select them on the set and leave set on that input and change channels with the box or VCR.

Much cheaper than replacing the fitting and gives a better picture.

Digital surround mode doesn't work,just analog dvd 6ch.input


Failure of the sound processor. All you can do is to remove the cover, clean the insides, check the cables to make sure they are still firmly plugged in and then measure the 5 volts power line from the source. If all appears OK the the processor has died - a replacement board is mandatory. It will be cheaper to buy a new receiver .

I have a turntable with a white and a red male RCA output cable. I am trying to hook it up to a Marathon DJ-1000 amp which has two TRS input channels - Channel 1 and Channel 2. Should I buy a twin female...


If I understand you correctly each channel has a single input in the amp, then yes! white goes into channel 1 and the red plug goes to channel 2 this way your signal will be stronger which translates into louder sound.

How do i connect my home theater system so that i may use the speakers to here my cabel channels


Hi,
How to connect your cable to your home theater system depends on several factors. So what I'll do is try to cover all of them.
If your home theater RECEIVER has various types of inputs then there will be several ways to do it.
If your cable box has various types of outputs there will also be several ways to do this.
Let's start with the basics.
All cable boxes that I have seen have Red colored and White colored (RCA type) stereo outputs. This also applies to any stereo or Home theater system which will have multiple inputs of the same type and color. If you connect a cable between the cable box's Stereo Outputs and into the cable (or satellite audio inputs of the Home Theater system. Then Switch the Home theater input to the same input, that will work.

If the cable box has an coaxial digital output ORANGE "RCA" TYPE PLUG) and the receiver has the same, connect a single RCA connector between the two. Then go into the input menu of the receiver and change that to digital as opposed to analog. (The red and white ones)

If the two pieces, Receiver and Cable box have optical connectors (little black square door with a red light behind it). Use that and set up the Receiver to receive a digital audio input.
With either the coaxial or optical connections used. You will have full surround sound when it is being broadcast.

Another possibility is that the receiver has discrete RCA input connectors for Left and Right Front, Center, Left and Right Rear and Sub Woofer. Again, if the cable box has these, have at it.

The last one is really simple.
If your equipment is relatively new there will be an HDMI connector on the back of the Receiver. If there is one on the cable box, which often there is for HD cable. Get a single HDMI cable and connect the two together.

I think that is all I know about the subject.
It might be a good idea to print this little article I wrote for you and use it as a reference while looking at the back sides of your home theater receiver and cable box.
I hope I've been a help to you. Please let me know.
Best Regards,
Mark

Magnavox sdtv tuner i set it by mistake in setup in rf and now i get nothing but power light i cant get back to setup to fix what i did


If you have a friend with a TV that has yellow/red/white connectors, for composite video and left/right audio, connect using the RCA plugs to that TV. Then you can see the 'menu' settings.
You could also connect the Y/R/W connectors to a VCR that has those inputs {most} and connect the VCR RF output on channel 3/4 to the RF {cable connector or 300ohm converter} input on the TV. The VCR would convert the RCA jack stuff to channel 3 or channel 4.

Bad main right channel ( no out put at all )


I had the same issue with this same receiver. Unfortunately this is a known problem with this receiver and Yamaha knows about it. The usual fix is to have the input RCA connections in the back replaced to some updated ones. What has happened is that there is a shirt created using the current RCA input jacks and it is actually turning the internal amplifier off to that particular channel or channels. My local stereo shop ( who is a Yamaha authorized service center) knew about this and replaced mine to the tune of $200.00. Good luck

Yamaha RX-V757 No Left Channel Output - Video Sources Only


First - make sure it is not a defective cable by reversing the leads/colors on the inputs if problem then goes to the right channel then you know it is a bad cable/RCA, etc., connector. I would try that first.

Thanks,

No video


Is the video cable composite or s-video? the output from the receiver to the sets line input (1,2,3,s-video) must be the same on most receivers. If the game console uses composite (yellow rca connector) to the receiver, the same cable must be the same from receiver to TV. Some receivers do "up convert" to s-video or to Progressive scan (red,green,blue rca connectors) and do not follow this rule. Yor set needs to be switched to the correct input as well. None of the receivers I have services thus far hve the 75ohm cable lug for RF. Check all the cableing and repost if you find something new or different.

Center and Surround Channels Inop


Even if it were a fuse, a blown fuse is merely a symptom not the solution. From the symptoms you've described the AMPs are the most likely problem. They are mounted to a large aluminum heat sink usually about center of the main board. There are several and they are a task to remove and replace because the entire board has to be removed... However, it's not too costly a repair and for a qualified shop something that can be done in a couple of hours - including testing. If you like the receiver get it fixed. Compared to most digital receivers today it's probably cheaper to fix this one than buy another. And a good repair shop will add years more life to that unit... Hope this helps. Bill
