Question about Yamaha R-V905 Receiver

1 Answer

Yamaha R-V905 constantly turns itself off

Recently my R-V905 has started turning off every few minutes. I'll turn it to Standby then turn it back on and it will stay on for a few more minutes, then off again. Sometimes it seems to happen when there is a loud volume spike.

    I don't think it's ventilation, since its been in the same case for 9 years.
    I've experimented and it definitely is volume-related. It now turns off when the volume goes over a quarter-way on the dial. Any

    Any ideas what could cause a volume outage?

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!

    Im guessing that it must be either a voltage regulator or maybe a capacitor? Im not sure.

    Sorry I could not help further.

What cable do you need to connect reciever to hdtv?


R-V905 doesn't appear to be HD compatible. It would need to have HDMI or component connections but the amp only has composite.You can only connect using the yellow video cable.

My reciver just shutdown then went into standby mode. Will not power back on. How do I fix this problem?


What do you mean by standby mode? Do you hear the power relay switch clicking constantly, or does it just click once and turn off? In any case, it could be a faulty power relay. I just sent in my TX-SR806 for warranty repair recently, and it ended up being just that.

Enters standby after being on for only a few seconds.


Sounds like either the volume is turned up too loud, or you have a short. Have you tried disconnecting all the speaker leads from the rear, and then powering it on? Usually if it turns on for a short time and then shuts off, it is throwing itself into protection mode.

Will not turn on.


It has an internal problem. Just received an RX-V2600 back from service for the same issue. It took a voltage drop then a spike. It takes out 5 caps and a few other parts. The repair will run roughly 250-275 depending on who does the service. Hope this helps

Rx-V2400 Shut Down


Hi Seems like you have a shorted output channel, remove all your speaker connections and try again, if the problem persist, good chances are that you need to replace a couple of power transistors, let me know if you need more help, I've fixed some Yamaha amplifiers with this problem Good Luck Miguel

Receiver shuts down and will not turn back on untill you unplug and plug back in


Nope. sorry to burst your bubble but your problem is pretty common on this unit. Its bad capacitors in the power supply and probably not worth repairing in a repair shop. since this is a solid state reciver, there are no user replaceable parts inside.
