SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V596 Receive turns off after pressing Power

Sometimes the receivers turn off if the speakers are shorted in order to protect the AMP circuit. So try this - 1. Disconnect all cables (speakers), inputs from Tape Deck, VCR and other input devices), sub-woofers, rear speakers all. Except the AC power cord. Then turn it ON and see if it stays on. If it still has the same problem, then most probably your power circuit inside the receiver has a problem - like a shorted Capacitor or diode etc. Based on how technical you can be and what resources and time you want to spend, this is repairable. But based on the price of a receivers these days, it is not worth. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Won't stay powered on

There is a relay right next to the fuses on the inside dg1u it says on the top. I cleaned it and pressed down firmly on it and it seem to have fixed it. It fired up for the first time.. The relay might need to be replaced if this doesnt work for ya.

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V1 Power

Got the same problem and did some searching.
Strange thing is that next day the amp works fine.
This is what I found on http://www.forums.hcsd.com.au/Blah.pl?m-1210733289/s-8/

SYMPTOM: The power cannot be turned on, or the protection circuit is activated to turn off the power.
CAUSE: Fluid leakage occurs from the backup capacitor C633 0.047F 5.5V (C662 in the case of RX-V3000/DSP-AX2) on the Function PCB and causes a short with the adjacent components and between patterns, resulting in operation of the protection circuit. Fluid leakage tends to occur with this capacitor particularly with high internal cabinet temperatures, with or without the power on. Often, the leakage is only visible with very careful inspection.

SOLUTION: Two types of backup capacitors are now available with a longer expected service life. When servicing, thoroughly clean the leaked fluid from the PCB and from under any nearby components before replacing the capacitor. There are models other than those mentioned above that use the subject backup capacitor. Check them for fluid leakage and replace the capacitor as needed.

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V995 receiver turns on & then powers off 2 seconds late

I suggest you run self diag.  press [FM/AM] key + [Input mode] key and press the [power/standby] switch.

ps prt = power supply problem
dc prt = shorted output or leakly cap in channel
tmp prt means to hot on heatsink

you'll likely have to measure the resistances of the output FETs to find a short,

SOURCE: connect Airport Express to Yamaha RX- V659

Since you're using a standard mini jack to double RCA cable, it's safe to assume you'll be sending line level signal into your reciever, so i think any of these audio inputs will do: AUX, CD, DVD, MD, TV.

Also try the inputs on the front of the unit (i guess they are meant to be used with a video camera or similar but they are designed for line level signals so it should be ok if you decide to use them).

Anyway, keep the source signal at a moderate
level when you test any of the inputs and raise it to a suitable level after you're sure it is coming thru well.

Normally, the AUX input is suitable for any AUXilliary signal source that puts out a line level signal, but if it is already being used, you may use other free inputs.

If you use TAPE or PHONO inputs, you should keep the signal level from the source a bit lower since these inputs will amplify the signal a bit more (especially the phono input which works with signals that are lower in level than the line signal).

I hope this helps.

This will almost certainly be a problem with the power supply, a faulty part. Unless you have experience of repairs to power supplies, due to the high voltages, I suggest you take it to your local authorised Yamaha Repair Centre.

I tried hooking up an old polk sub to my yamaha rx-v659 av receiver. smelled wires burning smell. before i could unplug it, receiver shut down. now it will power up for about 5 seconds and shut off. manual...


If a fuse was blown, it likely would have no power. However if the power board has overheated, the capacitors may have swelled up and burnt out and will only allow it to power on for a few seconds, then shut down. The capacitors can look swelled up or burnt or have burn marks on the power circuit board. You can test them with a continuity meter. Each component has a printed number of it's voltage and ohm resistance so you can test them.

Hope it hasn't been fried but unit is not powering up via remote or unit power-on buttons. Have tried different power socket.


Try checking the internal fuse(s). Then check the on/off switch. The other thing to consider is the transformer.

I HAVE A YAMAHA RX-V663, WAS ROCKING TO PINK FLOYD PRETTY LOUD AN


I had a similar problem. I have RX-V2500. No power to it when plugged it. Unplug then plug in again. Everytime you hit standby you get a click, which happens three timesand then no clicks until you unplug and replug.

I popped the cover off and just inside, where the power cable attaches, there was a white fuse. I think it was a 10A/250V (I'm in Canada), but read what the spec is on your fuse. I replaced this and it worked just dandy. Believe me - I was as surprised as the next guy.

Anyhow - hope that helps.

Obviously make sure it isnot connected to the power supply at all when you remove the cover.

Need yamaha codes to program into uverse tv ir remote


(I have the RX-V659). Because the Yamaha remote has TWO SEPARATE buttons - power ON and power OFF (standby). This problem can't be fixed. There's a code to choose power ON and another code for power OFF. But one button can't be two buttons. Bad engineering\ design by Yamaha in my opinion

Receiver turns on and clicks off when volume is raised over 8 or 9 on the dial


I had the same problem with my Yamaha amp. It turned out to be a shorting speaker wire. When I resoldered the speaker wall outlet connection it worked fine!

Yamaha RX-V595A tuns off automatically


This was happening to mine also, all of a sudden. This solution came from the owners manual. Sure enough, the impedance selector was stuck in the middle , between 4 and 8 ohms....I also, made sure the speaker wires were not touching each other at the splice. Problem fixed.
B




The unit fails to turn on when 
STANDBY/ON is pressed, or set in 
the standby mode suddenly soon 
after the power has been turned on. 
The power cord is not plugged in or the 
plug is not completely inserted. 
The IMPEDANCE SELECTOR switch 
on the rear panel is not fully set to the 
upper or lower end. 
Firmly plug in the power cord. 
Set the switch fully to the upper or 
lower end when the unit is in the 
standby mode.
