Question about Yamaha RXV665BL Receiver

1 Answer

My model is RX-V665...not sure what the BL stands for... anyway...no sound from the subwoofer. Pull the RCA wire from the back of the receiver and touch it with my finder and you hear a buzz from the speaker....do the automatic speaker setup and afterward the speaker layout the screen shows is 3/2/---.....so it looks like it is not recognizing the subwoofer....test tone program...you hear nothing from the subwoofer.....little speaker screen on the face of the 665 shows the subwoofer in the diagram....have volume set to high in the speaker setup.....went to dealer last night and the new models had a screen in speaker config where you actually had to tell the receiver you have a subwoofer....can't really find that in my receiver. Took my subwoofer to dealer last night and it played there...only in the "bypass" setting...so I left the subwoofer settings were he had them and returned home but still no luck.

My RX-V665 receiver lost its sound for no apparent reason while we were watching a show. It was in HDMI mode and has the message "Decoder Off". The sound works with a DVD and a CD, just not...


It's telling you the digital decoder is now "off" and will treat everything like 5.1. THAT is a selection you choose, not a status that spontaneously appears. Perhaps someone unknowingly touched the remote while playing.

Get the manual out and read up on DECODER. Page 61 (Troubleshooting: NO SOUND) suggests "A proper audio decoder is not selected". Try AUTO.

Or, track the digital source of your TV audio back to make sure it still works.

RX-V665 Yamaha reciever has been working great. Use it for surround sound and outside, zone two speakers. Recently started turning off during movies. I run blu-ray through receiver. When playing Star Wars...


You may find a solution by doing some of the things I have tried - see below

I recently puchased this model to replace an older Yamaha system that also had this shut-off problem. The new RX665 system has the same problem but I check the impedance setting using the instruction in the manaul anyway. The problem persists. I have check all speaker wire to make sure nothing was touching. I did find one wire touching on the center speaker but the problem persist.

Since the problem followed me when I moved and with a new amp, I am beginning to think I am have a speaker that's causing this - maybe the sub.

I have a Yamaha RX - V665 and the right rear surround works only part of the time.


Start by using an old test speaker and connect it directly to the right surround output with a short wire and monitor it.

If it sems to work with no issues, you either have a bad connection at receiver or speaker, or a break in the speaker wire somewhere.

If you have the same problem with the test speaker, you have a rgt. rear output issue in the receiver and it needs repair.

Hope this helps

No Soound on Subwoofer from Yamaha RX-V363


I have the same setup. Are you going out of the subwoofer output of the reciever? (it's purple.) then into the LFE jack of the subwoofer (also purple.) That's the only connection you need besides power. If you have those right, try using your cable for something else to make sure the cable is good. Is the indicator of the subwoofer green? Mine comes on with the reciever. Good luck!

Connecting Powered Subwoofer to a Receiver


you will need a line-level converter to use this subwoofer- it is a rectangular-shaped box with wires coming out on one end and red-and-white RCA plugs one the other. The end with the wires coming out will hook to the receiver, and the other end will need to plug into the sub.

Speaker wire for subwoofer


Usually, a subwoofer will have its own built-in power amplifier. Thus, it will be designed to plug into a standard RCA jack (the type used for DVD players, etc). rather than having wires to connect to a speaker terminal block. Look for a jack on the back of the receiver called "Subwoofer", or simply "SW". If your subwoofer has 2 single wires, it WON'T work with your reveiver's subwoofer output, as this output only carries a line-level signal and is not amplified. You would need a separate power amplifier for this type of SW. If your SW speaker has a DVD-type plug, it should work fine with the receiver's SW output jack.
