I had also exactly the same problem with the front display of my Rx-V661which was becoming completely blank... As mentionned as solution, I replaced the four capacitors handling the display power. Then, my display was back. (I didn't replace the diodes which were well working with new caps, so...) I thought that problem was solved. But one week later, this problem was back and now, I haven't again nothing on front panel screen... I suppose that there is something else which damaged the caps....but what's wrong? Someone can help me?

try holding the 'straight' and 'audio select' buttons and press power. What does it say on the front panel? Should say some kind of protect: I, DC, PS. This will help narrow down where your problem is.
There's a common problem with the Rx-V661 where a capacitor blows and then the display on the unit no longer works. It will start to display when you first turn it on, but fade out right away. This is because of a blown capacitor and a known issue for the Rx-V661.
For the setup functions you have to use either the monitor out (a yellow jack on the top-right corner of the back) or you have to use component video out. HDMI will NOT work for setting up the system. This is one complaint to Yamaha from all of us.
your receiver has zone 2 output which is operated independently of the main reciever. so you can have a dvd playing inthe main reciever and the tuner playing over the intercom. read about it in your manual page 89. in will hook up to 2 RCA jacks in the back Zone 2 out.
