Receiver shuts off when I turn up spund past 66db (max)
When I turn my my receiver past 66db, it turns off. This happen when watching TV, or on DVD, even the radio. thought maybe it was to hot, so I placed a fan by fan by it, but no go. When I was calabrating the speakers, it would go from L, C, R, RS, then when it would go to the rear speakers, it would cut off on me. SO I tried removing the rear speakers, and I programed it to tell the receiver that there was no rear speakers, but still that did no good. I even tried puting it on pure stereo (just the L + R speakers) and it still shuts off when you turn the sound up past 66db max.
Re: Receiver shuts off when I turn up spund past 66db...
What receiver do you have? Some receivers do this as a protection mechanism if something is shorting. does it turn off if you disconnect all of the speakers and turn it up? If not, then you most likely have some wires touching each other or something else, or you may have a speaker that is blown or shorted. If it still shuts off them most likely there is something wrong internally, and if thats the case your best bet would be to return it or take it into a professional. Hope this helps.

Usually when I hear of solid colors that display on a TV, my first solution would be to change the cable. We know your DVD player is working as you connected it straight to your TV and you report no problems. I assume you are using a composite cable (red, white, and yellow) Red and White being the Audio and Yellow your video.
But since your player works...and your tv works under the same input, then the only other issue would be the output cable from the receiver or the actual composite input or output connector is faulty.
try a video game system in place of the dvd player through your receiver..if it happens again, then change the receiver's output cable...if it still persists then your reciever's output connector is faulty.
Aside from any intrinsic problem with your receiver, the usual suspects are;
1) Poor receiver ventilation.
2) Very high levels of bass.
3) Shorts in the speaker wiring.
4) A rubbing loudspeaker voice coil.
sounds like you have the polairity reversed on the speakers
and yes it does make a difference
check polairity also make sure unit is well ventelated
you wouldnt use your compouter if it was inside a card board box
so make sure the reciever can breath also
recievers get too hot and they start blowing chips off the board
It is common theese days to have volume fluxuation while watching TV when viewing a HD show and going to a commercial break it gets ungodly loud, that's from digital to analog variance. However what you describe and the way you describe it leads me to believe its a chip in the receiver. The only way to really know for sure would be to hook up a DVD to your TV input and play a long movie " the godfather" or something like that which is a three hour or so movie and listen for the issue to occur. If it does, you know your receiver needs to be serviced. If it doesn't, swap your cable box or DSS with another one if possible and test again. It will take some time, but it won't cost you anything! Hope this helps. If you still have issues with it, send a response and we can try other things as well.
You can not have a signal from cable/satelite TV when reciever is OFF.The only way is reconnect by using defferent setup configuration to illiminate the receiver.In that case you well see just regular Tv program but you should connect antena to your TV.
Just a hunch - what's drawing power from the two convenience outlets on the back of the receiver. They're only rated for 120watts, that is, nothing like a TV.
I doubt this has anything to do with the source you're playing (unless you have it cranked to "11"). If I understand you correctly you said turning the TV on and off causes the problem. There's a clue.
it sounds like a source level adjustment refer to your users manual and see if there is a way to turn the SLA up and if not then a small amp can be bought or purchased to boost the sound from the tv. check out the Fiio E5 for examples it might just do the trick
Hard to say if this indicates a more serious problem that should be looked into. If under warranty take the receiver back to the shop and let them worry about it. If warranty no longer valid, you should let a professional Yamaha service person look into it.
But first lets see if we can't work around this problem.
Is the DVD connected to its own power supply, or connected to the AC outlets in the back of the receiver? in case DVD player's power cord is connected to the back of the receiver, I suggest you connect it independently to another electricity socket, and see if this has any effect on the problem.
Another thing to try is to connect the DVD audio cables to the receiver, and the video cables directly into the TV.
Even if this helps you solve the problem, you're better off having someone look into it. especially if under warranty, don?t think twice.
