Question about Yamaha RX-V663 Receiver

2 Answers

My brother gave me this Yamaha RX-V663 receiver because he'd bought a new one. He said it was starting to have sound issues. So, I have seven speakers (minus the subwoofer) all hooked up correctly (double checked it) but when I turned it on and tried to listen to the radio (FM antenna already attached) I can't hardly hear any sound. I switched to any devices like the dvd player or the ipod dock still with hardly any sound coming from the speakers. I have to turned the volume more than half-way just to hear any sound. And it sounded like when you're standing next to a person wearing his headphone listening to loud music. Did I configure it incorrectly or something is really wrong with this receiver? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Here is the owner manual:

It sounds like the TAPE monitor switch is on or MUTE function is activated.
You may have to read through the manual first.
Or it can be the audio switching processing circuits are bad.

Hi,
its not with any setting problem. its because ur receiver have some hardware problem. if there is any supply voltage missing, this problem can occur. especially the +15vand -15v. or if there is any loose contact or dry soldering in power supply or in the DAC ( Digital to analog converter) card. first of all check for any dry soldering in the main board. also check the soldering of DAC board socket and input selector board socket.
ok

If you have your receiver hooked up to a TV or Monitor, press "Menu" then toggle to section "5" "option menu" and check your "Dimmer" setting "0" is highest. Then check "FL Scroll" and the choice is "Cont". This info is on page 96 in your manual, if you don't still have a copy, here's the link

This usually means your receiver is not passing the HDCP copyright protection correctly. Try using component cables instead, if your receiver supports it.

I have seen this type of thing with several remotes.  You have some light source in the room that is interfering with the reception of the ir.  Turn off all light sources in the room and then try.  You might be surprised!

Yamaha RX-V663 - HDMI doesn't work.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a workaround:
  • as you posted, audio out of the DVD goes to the receiver;
  • HDMI out of the DVD goes to the Schaub Lorenz LCD.
Even if it were a compatibility issue or HDMI processor issue on the receiver, the above should get you going.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
