You may has a blown fuse inside the receiver. Unplug it from the wall, open it up and look around the area the A/C plug goes into the board. There should be a glass fuse. Sometimes you can tell by looking closely at the fuse if it is blown. They have a very slim filament that goes from one end to the other. If it is broken or not connected or if it looks like it is burned anywhere in the glass area, it is blown. Look at the metal ens caps for a amperage rating and get another fuse of the same value at radio shack or anyplace that sells fuses. make sure the power cord is not plugged in when you do any of this or you will get shocked.

When you first go to turn on the unit, do it with the speakers disconnected. That way, if a speaker is the cause of the fuse blowing, you will at least see that the unit turns on.

If it does turn on, turn it back off and connect the speakers and try again. If it blows a fuse, you most likely have a shorted speaker causing the amp to draw to much current and blowing the fuse.

If you replace the fuse, and it blows again after turing the unit back on with speakers connected, you have much deeper problems that will require electronic troubleshooting to determain the exact cause. But it is normally the amplifier having a shorted channel. Sometimes a random part failure can cause this for no apparent reason.

You will then need to have it serviced at a service center.

I hope this was helpful, let me know if you need more help.

Whats wrong with my stereo


How old is your HK receiver? The power supply capacitors can get old and tired, and cause the hum and shutoff. Repair is an option.

Setting up my rx v2400 to my tv


The setup may depend on your TV and other components and how you plan to use the system. Does your TV have analog or digital audio outputs? The receiver has analog and both types of digital inputs (coaxial and optical).

Use the best cables that you can. You can get all cables at online cable stores for much less than at the electronics big box stores. I'll assume that you already have the speakers connected to the receiver.

Next you can either connect your devices (cable box, blue-ray player) the receiver's inputs. Then connect the receiver's video out to the TV. This is great if you will only listen to the devices with the home theater system. Then you can also connect the TV audio out to the receiver for the OTA TV audio. For this you probably need component video cables and audio cables. These are all cables with RCA plugs.. Then get another audio cable for the analog or digital optical output of your TV. For some TVs the only audio out is the headphone jack. In that case, you also need a 3.5 mm to RCA adapter (the simplest is 3.5 mm M to RCA F/F for connecting to an RCA audio cable). For this method, you won't have to turn off the TV speakers most of the time; the TV won't have any audio.

Alternatively, connect each device audio/video out to the TV's input and then only connect the TV's audio out to the receiver DTV audio IN. Since the receiver doesn't have HDMI, this is the best option if your devices have HDMI out. For this, use the appropriate number of HDMI cables and the analog or digital optical audio cable from the TV to the receiver. Then turn off the TV speakers and enable the external speakers in the TV menu. You can connect to any of the receiver's inputs. If you use the labels, you'll find it easier to turn on the inputs.

If you have any devices with composite video output, use the same basic steps as for the component
The documentation for the RX-V2400 is available at the Yamaha product site: http://usa.yamaha.com/en/products/audio-visual/hifi-components/stereo-receivers/rx-v2400_black__u/?mode=model . You'll need to be a registered Yamaha user (Easy-Pass) to read the manual online.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with your devices (including the model of the TV) for more specific information.

How do I get the stereo sound through my tv so when I am watching my tv stations I get stereo?


Hi,your TV automatically switches to Stereo mode and a pilot lamp comes on most TV sets.
If you want to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your receiver, you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks of your TV to "AUX input " or "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) than just switch to respective mode corresponding your RCA connection..
There you go..Your TV sound is on the Receiver..
Take care and pls remember to rate me..
Thanks

I have a LG47" tv


Your DVD audio is sent directly to your receiver - not to you TV. That's why you can hear the audio on your stereo. The TV audio is not being sent anywhere - it is "stuck" in the TV and is amplified and sent to the TV speakers. Since the TV speakers are off, you don't hear anything. In order to listen to the TV audio on the stereo system's speakers, you need to send it to the receiver.

You need to have a pair (left + right signals) of audio cables (assuming you wish to listen to stereo sound) from the TV's Audio Output jacks to a pair of Audio Input jacks on the receiver / amplifier. You can use any unused input - CD, Video, Tape, Sat, etc. If you use Tape or Sat audio inputs, when you wish to listen to the TV audio, you must select the Tape or Sat input on the receiver.

Do not send more than one signal to a set of inputs on the receiver. Typically, a CD, DVD and Sat inputs offer two or more of the following types 1) Analog audio. These are the older RCA jacks that have been around since the beginning and require separate cables for left and right channels. 2) Optical inputs. This is the newer digital interface that provides for Dolby Digital (and others) format sound over a single fiber optic cable. 3) Coaxial inputs. This jacks looks like an RCA jack, but usually has an Orange ring - instead of the Red & White rings that analog RCA jacks have. They use a single coaxial cable. 4) HDMI input. This jacks carries both digital video and digital audio signals. If you are using an Optical input for the DVD on the receiver, do not use any other unused analog or digital inputs associated with the DVD to "piggyback" another device like a CD , VHS tape, etc.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Background music is loud but voices are barely audible when watching a DVD through the receiver. The cable through the receiver works normal. Please help!!!


The natual dolby digital is meant to be listened to loud.
There is a setup feature on the receiver called ATT (for attenuation). Set this to medium or high. This is a general answer - not specific to your model. You may have to do it through a setup menu or some receivers have an ATT button on the remote.

Sounds like you popped the voice coils in the speakers when you overloaded the old receiver. The system shut down to protect the speakers, but it didn't shut down in time.

Time for new speakers or to have the old ones re-coned.

Is the dish network connected to its pwn input on the SS system and did you turn the SS system to that input ?

I thought it might be heat related, so I put a small battery operated fan behind the receiver, and voila, no more clicking. I just have to invest in rechargable batteries or an electric fan.
