The unit is most likely getting too hot. Check your speaker cables for frayed wires that may be touching each other. The amp will continue to work, but work much harder into a lower impedence load. Over time this will damage the amp. If the cables are OK, try running the amp with the speaker wires disconnected. If the unit still behaves the same way, there is a problem internally with the output section that should be corrected ASAP.

Power outage so Yamaha htr3064 won't turn on. is there a reset procedure for this receiver?


Unplug the unit for 30 minutes and try again. It may reset. If you had a power cut, there may have been a surge just before the power went off and electrically damaged something in the unit.

Receiver plays for a few minutes then starts cutting on and off for about three minutes then starts playing again then starts repeating cutting on and off. What can be causing this?


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on; or it may turn on but produce no audio to the speakers.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

My receiver is cutting out please help me


First thing to check is your speakers. If you have on bad/ going bad it will cause the receiver to be overworked and shut down. disconnect all the speakers and turn the reciver on. if you still have an issue, it is the receiver. if it stays on, start testing speakers. use an ohm meter and test each one. they should each read above 4 ohms. if you don't have a meter, you can use the following method although it is less effective. start connecting the speakers one at a time. turn up the volume and let it play for a few minutes. when the offending speaker is connected, the receiver should cut out.

Receiver cuts out after a few minutes


So are you saying it needs to be playing for awhile before it dies? The Test Tones are brief and appear to work. I'd say you have a heating issue or a component within that malfunctions when its strained.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

Yamaha HTR-130 5.1 reciever Not Turning On


If you are not into repairing electronics then the best bet is to
replace the unit.

What is happening is there are capacitors that have swelled

and need replacing .

I had a similar problem with the same brand and it can be fixed

but the cost would be greater than just replacing the unit .

Yamaha R-V905 constantly turns itself off


Two things I think are happening. It is overheating and it has suffered some sort of damage to a component inside. Try to make sure there is ventilation on all sides. Can you remember a time where you did not have adequate ventilation for this device? If so maybe that is what caused the part inside to fail.

Hope this helps

Thanks for reading!

Htr 5590


Mine played for about and hour then cut off. It would cut off randomly after this hour. I initially thought it was overheating but after seeing other people had it happen after immediate turn on it must not be the case. Intermittent problems like this are difficult to troubleshoot which is why I came to this site hoping someone had found a simple answer. I am a technician and will have to do it the hard way. When I find the answer I will report my findings to this site.
