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.

Have a Sony 32" Bravia TV & Yamaha RX-V5000 Receiver. Unable to get the sound to come from the Stereo speakers connected to the RX-V5000 if watching TV. However, can get the Radio to play through the TV...


You probably want to connect the av Audio output from your tv and connect to the RX-V5000. The audio that you are getting from Radio through the tv is probably coming from the output of the RX-V5000 coming to your tv, to which the desiredd route is the other way.

The Outputs at the back should be labeled to tell you which channels are inputs or outputs.

CAN I CONNECT BOTH MONITORS AND SPEAKERS (S215 AND SM'S) TO A YAMAHA P5000S AMP?


You could use this amp as effectively 2 separate mono amplifiers - using one channel to power the monitors and one to power the main speakers.
Alternatively you can run the amp in stereo connecting one set of speakers to the neutrik outputs and one to the jack outputs. In this case the amp output will be shared equally between the two sets of speakers, which are in parallel, and the combined impedance must be not less than 4 ohms.

No output from one ch on old JVC VN-300 audio amp in stereo mode, power stage seems ok as both ch work ok in mono mode.circuit diagram, anyone?


The stereo/mono switch in most amps mearly feeds one channel to both channals when in mono. However it does mean that the Power Transistors (or whatever does the main output) is working on both channels. Therefore the dead stage is in the pre-amp part. Remember that the two channels will have the same parts as each other. The advantage is that one will have working parts and the other wont. So you can compare the two channels with voltage tests, using a multimeter.

Yamaha RX-797 iPod Integration


I have a question first... are the 901's amplified by a separate amp as they should be in a multi-channel (non-stereo) setup?

Better yet read the following then decide if you have iy set up right to begin with. If so, I'd just treat the Ipod or Mac as auxilliary inputs on the receiver. :

I wrote most of this for a different receiver, but if you account for minor differences to your receiver this will work just fine.

There's good news and bad news. The bad news you need a separate amp because a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's attached as recommended for a standard stereo receiver will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. The other speakers around the room are not designed to receive its Active Equalization and if you engage your Tape Monitor you will NOT BE ABLE TO HEAR DIGITAL sources at all. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on modern AV receivers it disables any digital inputs so you really can't use the Tape Monitor circuit or attached devices for modern digital sources. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread 2-channel analog source material around the room. I do.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what you want to do and it works great!

A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers.

You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.

Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup.

Write off the Tape Out as an input if you use it to extract the Front L&R channels. DO NOT monitor it or you'll chop the 901's out of the signal path AND kill any digital source audio in the receiver.

Audio from laptop to yamaha amp (rx-v18oo)to sony lcd


you will need a 3.5mm TRS minijack to stereo RCA (red & white)lead.
Connect the headphone-out of the laptop to a line input on the reciever - one of the following inputs should work: CD, CD-R in, Tape in. Do not connect to the Phono input
set the output volume of your laptop about 50% to avoid distortion.
As for connecting the amp to the LCD, it really depends what inputs your screen has, but if you can- run HDMI.

Yamaha rx-797 w/Yamaha ge-60 eq utilizing prein/main out ..and ad


It sounds like you want to use the external amp rather than the internal one. If that is the case, just connect the output of the EQ to the input of the external amp. All you are doing is inserting the EQ between the amp stages now. Using the mx-1 rather than the internal amp is no different.

Bose 901 equalizer


Hi Mark, had a look for a manual on your Yamaha, but not got to one as yet. Does it have any RCA connections on the back marked as preout prein? best place to put the 901 EQ is in line with L and R front channels at this preout prein point.

Some amps DO NOT HAVE IT. If our does not, then you could connect it in the tape loop, tape out(rec) to input on the EQ. and the output of the EQ connected to tape in(play), but connected like this, the EQ would affect the tone across all channels(unless you are just running a stereo rig, then this way works great!!) Try this and you may just have solved you problem anyway.
