Question about Audio Players & Recorders
CD player works well and sounds good while on battery power. The instant that I plug in the 4.5v dc cord, powered by the car's cigarette lighter, the unit shuts off completely. The cord indicates powered with a green light illuminated at the lighter's plug-in end. Any suggestions as to the problem? I don't want to keep buying batteries if it can take an external power source.
Hello. There is a hardware failure with the laptop not the AC charger. AC chargers have some range of protections of their own. If the power requirements of the laptop are bigger then what the charger can handle, the charger will turn off. Also other parameters can bring the charger offline. In your case, you have a problem with a small chip, the battery charge controller unit, witch regulates the amount of current required to propperly charge the battery. When this thing fails, the charging requirements for the battery are reported rong and the AC charger is forced to give more power then necesary. This results in disconnection of the AC charger ( an internal fail safe of the AC charger) and the laptop to swich back to battery power. When the laptop is turned off, it can charge the battery because the power requirements are low, having all processor, main board, hard disk etc turned off. Therefore the AC charger can handle the load. However you will need to have it checked by a service center as it is a hardware fault. Both AC charger and laptop needs that check. The charge controll circuit needs to be replaced probably. It will be a somewhat expensive repair. Don't buy any other battery untill you have the laptop checked. For more aditional info please post back. PS. Sorry for my bad english, I am from Romania, it is pretty hard for me to explain tehnical stuff in english.

SOURCE: No Power
in your power board near the back of transformer you have a backup power source of 5volts. that is for the cpu and the power relay swicth. can you check if you have that 5volts present. What i can see only in your unit is a major brekadown of your main amp section, all power transistros must be busted/shorted, and no chance even for a click on the relay. that is also feature of the protection. you wont be able to get the unit started even for a while. the fuses for yamaha do not normally blow and very often only your protection circuits enables. but in your case it is a very bad output stage now that you dont even get the display on to see the trouble in the built in diagnosis.

SOURCE: Power on problem
If your amp looks like it's going to work as normal (ie the front display lights up as it should etc), but then the amp goes into protection mode when the anti-thud circuit times out, then I know what's likely to be wrong.
It's one of the power amplifier channels which has gone faulty.
I just found this out after having this problem with my AVR-1906.
I took the amp apart and de-soldered the suspected channel power transistors (centre channel in my case).....and hey-presto! it fired up as normal (obviously the centre channel would be out of service).
I have ordered the replacement transistors from Farnell (UK) at a miserly cost of around £2-£3 each.
Just waiting for them to arrive.
An alternative is, if you don't use all your channels, take the transistors from a known working but not needed channel and swap them over with the duff ones.
Hope thats of use!

It's possible there are several bad solder joints on the front panel PC Board which can cause non responding controls, loss of sound. I repaired mine that way. Try turning it on with remote, see if that works.
