Hello,

your receiver is having a power problem. The problem should be from the power board. A capacitor or diode may be defective on the power board, that's why your receiver is not powering on.

If you know about electronics repairs, get a meter, open the receiver and read the power board of your receiver. This will enable you detect the bad component of the power board, so that you can make every necessary replace. By so doing the receiver should power on again.

But if you don't have any idea about electronics repair, you can give to a repairman to fix it for you. At this point, you will know if the receiver is worth repairing or not.

You will have to calculate the cost of repairs with the cost of getting a new model receiver.

If the cost of repairs is high, then it will be advice-able you invest in a new model receiver.

Good luck.

How to I tell if my receiver is dead?


It sounds like it is dead, check the manual.

Be sure you have mains power to the receiver, it sounds like that failed. A loose plug or blown fuse could cause that type of problem as well. Here are a few links that may help.

Possible burnt out power supply on Yamaha RX-V557


Can you check the power transformer, voltage & resistance.
You may have to unsolder some components to test them...such as the rectifying diodes and the transformer.  I believe that the outputs from the power supply board are all DC voltages.  Is there all so a IC chip on the power supply board?  Does your insurance cover lightening damage?

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.
