Question about Yamaha RX-V420 Receiver

1 Answer

Yamaha RX-V420 No power

This receiver died on day. I have checked the fuses and they are fine. There is power to the power supply board. The standby transformer has the correct voltage, the main transformer has no voltage on the output. But when you press the power button, nothing. No lights, no clicks nothing. Anyone with any ideas? Any checks i can do?

    I have the same unit with the same issue. I checked the voltage across the small trans former on the power board (which I assume is the standby power feed) and on the side with two terminals I could only read 0.5 volts accross them Is this within spec? if not what should I check next?

If the standby voltage exists, the next step is to see whether or not the clock is working. Find the main micro chip. There should be a 3 legged crystal close by. You should see this oscillate (use a scope). No oscillation = no micro control = no turn on. It is possible that the micro is bad or the crysal is bad. Also, check to be sure that the output transistors are not shorted. It is also possible that these are preventing the system from turning on.

No sound on left front speaker


you need to set up the individual volume levels for each speaker.
do a sound test tone which will check for a signal from each speaker.
if you hear the speakers at different volumes you know you need to adjust the ones that are too weak. hope this helps

Yamaha RX-V750 wont power up


Check the fuse. You might have had a power surge which blew a fuse. If not, check the fuse for the socket. Reset the fuses for that socket. If it still doesn't work, it sounds like the internal boards got fried, or the power supply got fried. The power supply is replaceable, but we don't know if it is the power supply. To check, connect a voltage meter to the power supply.

Something like this happened to me. I found a new kenwood stereo next to the dumpsters, stickers and all still on it, plugged it in, it worked, shut it off to plug in a speaker, didn't turn back on, months later after leaving it plugged in, turned on, I used it, then shut it off for the night, in the morning the standby light was still on, tried turning it on, but it wouldn't for some reason, unplugged it, then the light wouldn't come on, it was once again sitting on a shelf as a paperweight, one day it randomly came on again, and now it 100% works, and I use it as an amp for my RE audio subwoofer, and its worked great since! The reason this kinda applies to you is because its kinda simmilar what happened to you. Just leave it plugged in, and maybe sometime you will walk by it noticing it works.

How much for a digital board for my yamaha a/v rxv 420 ?.an expert check my a/v and tell me the problem is the digital board.


What concerns me is why do you need a digital board, which cost around $150 or so. I just repaired a rx-v620 that needed the volume and mode crols replaced. These controls affected mant aspects of the digital circuits opperation. Your 420 could have a similar fate. What is it doing?

The unit does not work


check the standby power supply first and then the main power supply.also check the output transistors and fuses your problem is in one of those points, normally the standby transformer goes bad, it is the small one right next to the big one.
good luck

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?

Yamaha RX-V420 Will Not Power up


Hi Daniel if your set does not have a fan that trips on when the volume gets louder surely the audio output will damage. every working component generates heat and when the heat sore up to an uncontrolable level it cause damage.have a tech look on your set to repair it.good luck.
