Question about Yamaha RX-V490 Receiver
Hi i just bought a yamaha rx v490 amp and it keeps turning off after around 5 seconds even with no speakers or inputs plugged in. Can someone pls help as im pretty ********** about my new purchase. The guy who i bought it from tells me it worked fine before shipment to me. Thanks to anyone who helps me out.
The amp is in protect mode which means that the output section has a problem. With nothing connected, there are defective parts inside the unit. This type of problem is not likely to have been caused by any shipping damage. I would guess that the output transistors are shorted.

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to an amp or receiver. Get a cable like the one described here:
and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the MP3 player volume up.
