I got thinking about how the unit kept shutting down when I turned the voloum up and thought the problem may be in the speaker connection, more voloum, more power.

I had my speaker wires attached to the edge of the wall and ceiling with small nails. I thought, what what if they were hitting some wire? could that cause a grounding effect?

I rewired the speaker system and now I am rock'n out once again.

If you folks encounter this problem, of the unit shuting down when it is turned up, you may want to ask them how they have the speakerwire mounted?

Just let them know they may grounding out the system with any kind of metal or steel touching the wires,and it will shut down when turned up.

And if you want to you can tell them to thank Luke A. Zoid.

DLPs have had terrible reputation for faulty power supplies. Does the power light flash when it shuts down? How many hours are on the lamp?

Display shows overload and receiver shuts down


This means that one (or maybe more) of the amplifiers is shorted. Remove all speakers cables and try again. If you get the same message that means that one (or more) amplifiers is fried. To find which and why you will have to open the unit and test the amplifiers.

Regarding a Yamaha RX-V757 receiver, if I have my volume set above approximately -28, whether I'm playing a DVD or listening to a music CD, the units power shutsoff. When I turn it back on the display says...


Try turning up the volume with just the FM selected (and tuned to a station). If you can adjust the volume to an appreciably higher level when simply tuning in a radio station, then your CD/DVD player may be outputting a signal with a DC offset, which is getting amplified when you turn up the volume, and past a certain point the protection circuitry is sensing too much DC being sent to the speakers and shuts the unit down. If the unit is getting hot, there is likely an internal problem, or you have a shorted speaker wire, or even a bad speaker. Replace the speaker wires as a test, and you can also run the unit with only one speaker connected at a time to see if any are the source of your problem.
Yes, it's possible that there's nothing wrong with the wires or the speakers, and the unit simply needs a trip to the shop, but it's your job to rule out the easy stuff before you pack it up and take it in.

Right light comes on- but then shuts off trying to get to turn on


First, check your fuse, it really could be that simple. Check it with the Ohms setting on your DMM, do not bother with continuity. If it is under 1 the fuse is fine.

It actually sounds like a short in the amp circuit. Inspect the amplifier where it connects to the heat sink. Check for signs of oxidation or any contaminant that may cause a short in the amplifier. Ensure there is ample thermal grease between the amplifier and the heat sink. You may wish to reflow the 22 pin connection on the board. I would recommend desoldering the whole component if you can, cleaning and testing it, and resoldering to the board with fresh lead free solder and no clean flux.

If the amp is blown you can replace it for around $70 USD.

Yamaha RX-V992 won't stay on. Starts for a second then shuts off.


Sounds like one of a few things. There is an auto protect feature in most amps and they kick on when one of the following happens. This is assuming that the speakers are plugged in when the problem happens. If not, the power supply is shot or some other non user serviceable problem is happening with the amp.
A. Speakers are out of phase B.The Speakers are way to large for the system C.There is a short in one of the speaker lines. D.The speakers are blown or shorted. E. Last but not least, the power supply for the amp is going, going gone. It could also have gotten some moisture.

Not to be redundant but try some of this. Take a new speaker wire, not the old.
1.Check the phase. For all speakers. Make it the same all the way around,
+red or white stripe, to the red terminal and -black or non striped to the black or negative at the amp and speakers.
2. Start with all speakers unplugged and plug just the right front in. Test it.
If it works ok, then plug in the second speaker, again by itself. Test it.
on and on. By process of elimination, you should be able to isolate the problem. That is of course, if it has anything to do with the speakers.

When i power on the device, it comes on but goes off about 5 seconds later.


Hi...

1st thing to check is for GOOD speaker connections at both ends
and not mixing A and B speaker wiring.

A Denon is usually a good brand. Might be worth servicing if need be.

Power out


Try and disconnect ALL of the speakers to the unit. If the unit still does the same thing, this is an indication that there is a fault in the power supply or the main amp circuit of this receiver. If the unit does not do the same thing, try and connect up the speakers, one at a time, until you connect up the speaker that makes the unit shut down. If you connect them all and the unit does not shut down, then there must have beed a speaker wire strand touching. Good Luck

if you sent 110v down the speaker wires & into the amp you most likely have damaged the audio outputs or the output ic. Look for a big aluminum heatsing & on one side you may find 1 or 2 ic's or numerous transistors, the ic's are hard to check, the transistors are easier to check, if transistors replace in pairs. also check for burnt /open resistors near outputs
