The system is most likely in "protect" mode. This means that a problem was detected and the output section has been disabled to prevent further damage. The most common failure is of the output transistors. Figure about $15-$30 in parts plus the local labor rate for a repair.

How do I connect my Yamaha RX-V733 to a CD Player?


I don't see a RX-V733 on Yamaha's site. However, look for a stereo audio input on the receiver. Then use the appropriate audio cable or adapter for the CD player audio out.

Depending on the CD player, you should use either an RCA M/M to RCA M/M (red/white) audio cable or a 3.5 mm headphone to RCA stereo audio cable. (If you don't have a headphone to RCA stereo audio cable, you can use adapters on either side. Examples: 3.5 mm M to RCA F/F adapter to RCA audio cable as above or 3.5 mm M/M cable to 3.5 mm F to RCA M/M audio adapter, depending on which cable you want to use and where you connect the adapter.) After making this connection, turn on the CD player, select the appropriate input.

The connection for an external audio device (like a CD player) is shown on page 31 of the manual for the RX-V773. Even if this is a slightly different model, the image may help. The manual is available from Yamaha on the product page: http://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio-visual/av-receivers-amps/rx-v773_g/?mode=model . Click on the Support tab. The direct link to the manual is http://download.yamaha.com/api/asset/file/?language=en&site=au.yamaha.com&asset_id=54075 .

I hope this helps.

Can I use an Ipod Dock with a Yamaha RX V490 receiver?


No, but you could still access the audio directly from the iPod...

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to an amp or receiver. Get a cable like the one described here:

and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the MP3 player volume up.

Yamaha RX V 657 - No Sound Output, and No input detection


Bad DSP chip. The only other possibility is if you have the "Direct" on. On the front of the receiver it's a small button. Also make sure your "Speaker Select" A/B is "on" You will see it on the display, it's also a small button on the front of the receiver. If all this is correct and you still have no audio, it's a bad DSP chip. Not worth repair, it's 400-500 repair. Not very common in a Yamaha RX-V series, but I have seen it. I'm a Yamaha Dealer. If you need further help, post a comment and I will be glad to help you further.

Right now my reciever will only play with two speakers (L and R). How do I get the 5.1 DTS back?


Are you using single digital coaxial or optical digital or the stereo RCA cable.
You might have that buttons on the remote for surround,2channel,3channel or 5.1 channel. orGo to the DVD's setup menu and click on "Audio Setup" or on "Languages" if there is no Audio Setup option and choose "Dolby Digital 5.1." (If you have a5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 system select "Dolby Digital EX" if it is an available option.) Depending on the age of the disc, the "Audio Setup" on the DVD menu may give you several choices: "5.1 Channel Surround Sound" or "Stereo Playback." If it's an old DVD, it might even say Dolby AC-3 (the professional designation for Dolby Digital 5.1). New DVDs may offer "Dolby Digital 5.1" and "Dolby Digital 2.0," the latter being stereo. Some of the disc menus offer only "Surround Sound" or "Stereo" options.

Speakers connection


There shouldnt be a problem with that at all. The subwoofer needs to be self powered. The Yamaha has a "Subwoofer Output" on the back. Just connect it there.

Yamaha RX V490 Turning itself Off


The amp is in protect mode which means that the output section has a problem. With nothing connected, there are defective parts inside the unit. This type of problem is not likely to have been caused by any shipping damage. I would guess that the output transistors are shorted.
