Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver

Open Question

HDMI Issue I recently got my 661 back from a warranty repair that saw my HDMI ports be replaced because of a power surge. Now when I try to view my Satellite through my receiver my receiver shuts down. I also tried viewing my xbox through the other HDMI port but the same thing is happening. It seems that whenever I try to do anything that requires an HDMI input (satellite, xbox) the receiver shuts down into standby mode. It works fine from what I can tell otherwise. Radio works, sound through all the speakers...is there some sort of reset I need to perform on the receiver after having it fixed to enable the HDMI input or do I need to take it back to the repair shop?

    Have the Yamaha RX-V661 7.1 with two HDMI inputs from Comcast DVR and Toshiba HD-DVD, and one output to my Toshiba HD set. it has been working fine for just short of a year. Now all of the sudden my video is not working, If i try the Comcast DVR i get a screen for a few seconds, then goes green and then nothing, but audio. If i try my DVD no signal at all, but audio. I have another Sharp HD set and same issue. I have tried swapping the output HDMI cable and still same results. I have connected the DVR and DVD directly to the HD Sets and they all work fine.

    I assume it is a problem with my HDMI output on the RX-V661 box?

This maybe an easy one. Have you unhooked all the wires going in to the stereo. "SP wires" means you have wires to the speakers are touching and the stereo is shutting down to avoid overloading. Hope this helps...

The problem might be caused by two major circumstances. 1)Touching wires 2)Overheating. I suggest you unplug all wires connected to the amp then turn on the amp. If it gets turned on then we know that the problem is that you have touching wires. If there is a short circuit somewhere, get rid of it. The ventilation is another important issue that you have to pay attention. It simply causes overheating.

Ok... I'm still new to the HDMI input. But I'm going to take a shot in the dark on this one.

Please don't rate me poorly for this, by the way. I'd rather you don't rate me at all as I am not proposing a solution.

This is a guess. I'll be honest about that. So here goes... :P

I read through the manual a bit. (Click HERE for the manual.) I started thinking to myself about your situation...and noticed that you seem to be focused primarily on the receiver itself.

What about the Satellite receiver? Have you checked it to see if you might have to manually switch the audio output to your HDMI output? I know you have video and all, but many devices won't assume that you're switching BOTH the video AND the audio outputs. Sometimes you have to manually switch one or the other, depending on how you're connected.

I would check the SAT receiver to see if you have to switch the audio output to go out from the HDMI output on the SAT receiver.

It has always been my experience that when the speaker icons flash on the audio receiver and you're sending a digital signal to it, the receiver is in fact NOT receiving a signal...
...which obviously means that one is not being sent to it.

Please let me know what you come up with. Again, this was just a shot in the dark. But I am curious either way. :)

Let me know!

SOURCE: XBox 360 to Reciever to TV via HDMI no sound

I recently got the same receiver and had the same problem. Here's what I was told - and it worked for me:

Even though HDMI cables carry audio and video, for whatever reason this reciever won't accept audio through hdmi. Apparently only much more expensive recievers carry audio through hdmi. What you have to do is run optical audio cables from your xbox, cable box, dvd player or other video device to the optical inputs on the back of the reciver. Then you customize the scene buttons to match your video and audio inputs.

You can get these optical cables pretty cheap on line or even at target. Don't get ripped off by Best Buy for these cables. I love best buy, but they rip off on cables!

This receiver is great - once I got it all figured out and running right I've loved it! Hope everything works out for you!

You need to Bypass the Receivers HDMI port and use HDMI directly to the TV. Your receiver has HDMI version 1.2a and is not 100% effective. Use the optical out from your Xbox to the receiver and all will be well. 1.2a has issues in every receiver on the market. Supposedly 1.3b on the "new" receivers has fixed this issue. Hope this helps

How do I replace hdmi connectors in tv


If your television is under warranty, have the manufacturer repair or replace it for you. If your TV has more than one HDMI port, you can use an HDMI splitter to connect multiple inputs to the one port. However, if you are confident in your soldering skills, you can repair broken HDMI port, so long as the damage is only to the connector and not to the printed circuit board to which the port is soldered.

TV won't recognize PC through HDMI port anymore


Thanks for all the background, super detailed! I had a similar problem on a new Samsung that was really flaky with my HDMI from a raspberry pi. Would have to do all kinds of unplugging, cycling power etc like you're doing to get it to work. Once on it would work until I turned the tv off (actually doesn't turn off, but goes to sleep) and back on. Finally figured out that the resolution I was outputting wasn't supported, BUT sometimes it would work. Once I changed the resolution to a supported resolution it worked all the time.

HDMI ports not working. Possible lighting damage


I've seen alot of TV's with blown HDMI inputs. They seem to be easily damaged by power surges. If you are good with electronics repairs, you can locate the HDMI input chip on the main board of your TV and replace it. It is quicker and easier to locate a replacement main board on Ebay or Shopjimmy and just replace the whole board. Just make sure you buy the exact same board .

Wont turn on but tries too come on,power light blinkink


Internal power supply failure. Was there a lightning storm in your area recently or utility work being done recently? This two things usually kill TV's and other electronics with surges when power is restored. If the set is under warranty call the manufacture, if not, call you homeowners insurance agent to see if the damage is covered w/or w.o. deductible. At least you can get something toward repair/replacement costs. Future fix, purchase and install a surge arrestor in your main AC panel for the whole house or buy a power strip with a built in surge filter/protector for your expensive equipment.

A power surge fried my Epson Home Lite projector HDMI port......how much does it cost to repair or is it pretty easy to buy the part & fix yourself?


I have lost many things to power surges; sometimes it's only the electric cord (can be replaced), sometimes it's the battery (for lap tops), sometimes it's the electrical socket itself (try plugging into a different one). Worst case scenario the whole thing is fried (not all power surges are equal) now that I have everything plugged into surge protectors I only see them fry (beats losing another computer) try plugging it in without the surge protector or extension cord (if you were using one).

Only one (out of four total) HDMI input is working on my set.


The HDMI switcher IC chips in TVs can be damaged but lighting hits near you house even if the power is protected with a surge protector. The damaging power comes in through the HDMI port and blows the chip out and it can affect just one port or multiple HDMI ports. Your best bet would be to just get a cheap HDMI switcher and use the one working port. The repair on the TV would require placing the control board and would run from $75-150 for parts plus the labor to install it.

Killed by lightning, have power, no picture...


The warranty does not cover lightning, check if your insurance covers it.
A lightning strike on such panel ( HDMI ) is very difficult to repair and if not impossible.The HDMI connector is hooked to the ground of the TV set so everything could be damaged.
My advice is not to repair.
