Follow this first, if you still have an issue, post a reply or comment and I can help you dig further.

The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Videoyamaha rx-v1 powers on for about 5 seconds and - 2_bing.gif Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire2_bing.gif. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers2_bing.gif) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

Would a Yamaha RX-V1 drive the Bose 901 Series VI speakers well?


The Bose 901's can handle up to 450w per speaker, using the Yamaha receiver, would not be MY first choice. Considering you invested in bose for a the quality of the brand, don't short change it like that with a lower powered receiver. NOT saying it won't do it, IT WILL, HOWEVER, if you really wanna see what those bose can do, get something more than the Yamaha RX. (110 watts)
Speakers like power, its best to run them at a minimum of 225watts. the closer you get to the 450w the better. 110watts is just too low, and can damage the bose. HECK, under powering ANY speaker can damage it QUICK!.

My Yamaha receiver RX V463 is immediately turning itself off after I try and turn it on? (both with remote and on the receiver itself)


Power it On without speakers connected.

If it powers up, reconnect speakers one at a time to find the cause.


If the problem persist even without speakers connected,

these unit needs servicing.

if you have any more questions let us know.

Hi receiver is having intermittent problems with power up & off. at the moment it would only turn on once in 5 times i try to turn on. At one stage it would turn off but then back on again within five...


I got Yamaha RX-V3800 with intermittent power.
Cause by capacitor C4 22nF 630V on the control power board.
After replacing the capacitor, receiver again working OK!

Re: Yamaha RX V670 Receiver Powering Off


I have found there are capacitors failing through the output circuit. Look for 10, 33, 47, etc.. microfarads.In that range. I charge typicaly 150 to $200 with parts on something like this. Larry's Electronics ledstiles@hotmail.com

I have an RX-V1. After it has been on for a while


rx-v1 have two issues . one is the leaky memory back up cap, this is a problem for all the older rxv series yamahas the other is a faulty voltage regulator. Make sure when you first turn it on that the output of these regulators is up to where it should be. ie. 5 volts negative 5 volts , + the - 12 etc. Change the one that is not. regulator block on the rx-v1 is in the middle towards the front of the set. These are nice units, worth getting fixed. I've worked on quite anf few and never seen a bad output in them yet , rare.

Yamaha RX-V995 receiver turns on & then powers off 2 seconds late


I suggest you run self diag.  press [FM/AM] key + [Input mode] key and press the [power/standby] switch.

ps prt = power supply problem
dc prt = shorted output or leakly cap in channel
tmp prt means to hot on heatsink

you'll likely have to measure the resistances of the output FETs to find a short,

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.

Get another receiver! I had the same problem and had the power supply replaced $250 and after 3 months it started doing the same thing.  I just purchased a Pinoeer Elite VSX 90TXV.
