Question about Yamaha HTR-5850 Receiver

Sony Stereo not working with Yamaha HTR 5850

I recently had my house painted and the painter unplugged everything and replugged it all in. In doing this he somehow messed up my stereo connection to the surround sound and I can't seem to get it reconnected. The manual is also of no help. When I installed it a couple years ago I did it with a friend and haven't touched it since. I need someone to help me figure out what is plugged into the wrong place!

    Everything else I have figured out. The only one I can't get to work is the Sony Stereo, purchased in 2000. He left a few things unplugged altogether and a few items I think he may have plugged into the wrong spot. I don't want to start plugging and unplugging everything and then screwing up the TV and speakers as well.

    i already have the manual, it still doesn't help for a clear diagram.

    The radio works...I am pretty convinced the problem is stuff is not plugged in correctly going out of the sony and going into the yamaha and/or the subwoofer, which is also messed up. Could you tell me how many things should be plugged into the back of the Sony and under what input/outputs? He left nothing plugged in there. And then what outlets in the yamaha should they plug in to? And the one input plug on the back of my subwoofer, what should that go into? Sorry for so many questions.

I am guessing all your connections haven't changed and perhaps the configurations have been wiped. First thing to try is to turn on an input you know works, like the radio built into the amp, make sure you get sound out of the Yamaha. If not check the speaker A/B buttons next to the power button. If the radio works move on to the sony, how is it connected? Make sure the yamaha is configured to use the right type of input for the sony, not just the number of the input but also the type, press the input mode button several times, the one next to the input knob on the right,  while on the input for the sony.
If none of that works the amp may have seen a short circuit on the mains which may has caused damage. if thats the case it needs to be repaired by a qualified repair technician.
Good Luck.

    sorry, not a short but a surge form disconnecting the power, when turning the power back on to your entire house there is a bit of a jolt that I have seen do strange stuff like take out one computer and not another on the same surge suppressor.


    Anyways, yes, getting a hold of the manual will be a good idea if the radio works and you need to reconfigure the inputs to what they are supposed to be.

Can you give us the list of any other device that you want to connect to it?

  • Jaime Hernandez May 26, 2008

    I would suggest to check if all the speakers are working with the radio from your Yamaha HTR 5850, if you do now is time to connect the other device and make sure you select the proper inputs.



    How many devices you are connecting?

Had painters spray ZInnser BIN on a 60's textured ceiling that had no apparent problems. That was followed with spraying a coat of ceiling paint- don't know what but it was reputable brand;pr


I would say this was a moisture or curing problem. The painters also may not have allowed enough time to dry between coats or put on far too much application at one time which caused the weight of the product to sag. I'd call Zinnser first to inquire, then go back to the head of the company the painters work for and report their error.

So here is the deal, I took out my entire dash board out of my truck with plans to re-paint it. So my question is how should I go about painting the plastic moulding and what not? Also I was curious as...


they make special paint for this, contact a local automotive paint store they can sell u the paint and the cleaners you need to use to prep the plastic, do no skip any step, what follows is a detailed description of what this cleaning entails.
Use a clean rag and the soapy water to wash the rest of the dashboard. You'll need to scrub especially hard if the dashboard has Armor All™ or another type of protectant on it.

Next, rinse the dashboard off well, and dry it off with a clean rag. Before you paint the interior of your car, the areas will need to be completely dry in order for the paint to stick well to it. So, let the dashboard air dry while you apply painter's masking tape to the interior. Painter's masking tape is blue tape that peels off easily after the job is done. That's why it's recommended over regular masking tape. Painter's masking tape won't leave a sticky residue like regular tape can, too.

Tape off the areas of the dashboard you don't want to get paint on. This may include the bottom part of the windshield, the radio, gauges, the gear shift, other chrome, etc.

Before you paint hard plastic areas, you'll need to rough it up with a piece of fine sandpaper first. Use an old rag to wipe up the dust the sandpaper creates. Then, you'll need to remove the remainder of the dust with a wet, soapy rag. Rinse the area again and dry it well.

Finally, use a clean rag and some rubbing alcohol to go over the plastic pieces, and the dashboard (if it's made of plastic) one more time. The rubbing alcohol will remove any residue left from cleaning the area with the soapy water.
