Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver

1 Answer

Sound turns on and off intermittantly through unit

We set up the receiver 5 days ago, and it's been working fine until this morning. I turned on the receiver, and no sound came through any of the speakers (surround sound) or sub on all inputs. Then all the speakers and sub came on after about 5 minutes - the sound will work for anywhere from 10 seconds to 1 hour at a time, and radomly shut off. The door of the entertainment center is open, so it shouldn't be overheating. I have tried unplugging the power cord for a minute, and plugging it back in. All of the speaker wires are securely attached and not touching.

Help!

You may have a bad protection relay or solder joint at the relay mount position. This relay prevents power supply "thumps" when the unit is first turned on, and also shuts the amp down when there is an overload problem....accordianman

Return unit to place of purchase, this is clearly a manufacture defect. The warranty will cover full replacement, do not allow them to attempt repair on the current item because you will be back and forth until warranty runs out.
