Question about Yamaha RX-V1900 Receiver

Open Question

Hi, I have a RX-V1900 (Yamaha AVR) and have noticed that sound from the front speakers are weak and sound recesssed. If I increase the volume to -.30dB, I can now hear the vocals and the cymbals clearly but at this volume the bass is thumping strong that is dominates the music and drowns the mid and highs out. This was not a problem when I set this receiver up a few months ago, however this weak frontal sound has manifested itself when I shifted house and had to move the receiver along. All other settings are as they were before (incl GEQ), spkr volume, distance and tone controls. Not sure of a factory reset would help. The one mentioned in the owner's guide (pg 115) did not work, the weak frontal sound remains.

    You have not mentioned if you have recently gone through the speaker settings to see if adjustment would resolve it. You have only said they are the same as they were 4 months ago. The optimization is to be run AFTER all speakers are in place and evaluated from your listening position. You say things have been moved around.

    Treat that event as a new installation.

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V730 problems

I used to have a set of speakers with 'poly switch' over-current protectors (kind of a 'soft' fuse the size of a small ceramic capacitor) installed in-line with the speaker terminals. (Each speaker in an enclosure needed its own device.) The theory was they appeared as a dead short until their rating was exceeded, going open-circuit to protect the (assumed, more expensive) speaker element. When things 'cooled down' it returned to the former short status and the speakers came alive again. Testing the device with a decent drive signal (it worked), I noticed the sound 'strangled' and only a low-volume, higher-frequency component of the source signal was heard through the speaker. (So I guess it wasn't *totally* open circuit...) After a few seconds of signal removal (and reduction of source volume) the sound came back to normal. Here's my thought: Perhaps your speakers have these devices installed and the devices are operating accordingly. Of course, if the source signal is of a known low-volume, then it sounds like an amplifier component is failing on load. Especially if the speakers behave normally using another amplier. Cheers...

SOURCE: Yamaha HTR-6130 Front right and left speakers with no sound

As simple as this sounds, try hitting the speaker a/b button on the front of the unit, next to the headphone jack. I had the same problem, and was about to package the whole thing back up and go back to Best Buy when I hit this button and then the audio test worked.

SOURCE: Voices drowned out by background noise.

Not a suggestion, but I hope there is a solution.
Recently bought an LG HDTV that has a setting that should increase the voice over the background. If it does, I can't notice the difference. I guess they can probably measure it electronic.
I've had your same complaint for years, without a good solution. Best so far is to use headphones.
I have no idea why film people add all the extra noise. Most of it is not even real.

SOURCE: Surround speakers work in test mode but won't come on during play

Check that you set it to Pro logic and check the speaker set-up. Set it to 5.1 Sounds like somthing is in the wrong setting.

SOURCE: Front speakers no sound!

Most likely you have pressed the speaker AB switch, try pressing it again and see if it works.

No sound on left front speaker


you need to set up the individual volume levels for each speaker.
do a sound test tone which will check for a signal from each speaker.
if you hear the speakers at different volumes you know you need to adjust the ones that are too weak. hope this helps

Yamaha RX-V465 switches off when increasing volume beyond -21.0dB


What speakers you have connected? This receiver supports only 6 and 8 ohm speakers (not 4 ohm). Also check if the ohm settings are correctly set in Advanced Setup (in standby press on the front panel STANDBY while holding STRAIGHT button). In this menu check the setting SP IMP. (speaker impedance) if it maches your speakers (6 or 8 ohm).
Disconnect all inputs and also all speakers. With nothing connected, try to increase the volume. If it still will power off, the unit is probably faulty and should be repaired.
If it does turn off only with speakers connected, check the speaker wires and the speakers, the problem will be there.

How do I link mt remote (rx-v1900)with my tv


OK. So did it come with instructions? If not, it is a rip-off. I suggest you contact your retailer in that case.

HDMI out jack physically broken on my rx-v1900. Fixable?


An audio repair shop should be able to get a replacement connector and swap it for you. I doubt that the part is available from Yamaha (and it would be pricy if it was). The connector shouldbe available generically. Digikey or Mouser should be a good source.

Hi where can i downlowd a manual for the rx-v1900


I would start at the www.yamaha.com web site's support page. Find a Support page, and then look for Downloads. Be prepared to enter specific info about your device, like model number, serial number, etc.
If that fails, enter something like: yamaha rx-v1900 user manual in Google and you should see many different references to it. Spend a few minutes browsing the most likely places by reading the headings.
Good luck!

We want to hook up eight speakers in eight differnet rooms (one speaker per room with individual volume control) and hook them up with yamaha RX-V1800 receiver so that we can play all the speakers in...


Hi...
Without a huge mess, I would suggest one of the multi-speaker selectors that partsexpress.com sells or a similar item.
Just put "speaker slector" in their search engine.

If youre going to 8 other rooms..you might try a couple of wireless speaker systems too. They work in stereo and ....no wires

No sound when using Panny plasma with RX-V3800


Let me see if I understand. You have one HDMI cable linking your TV and AVR? This is only to send video and sound out to your TV from the AVR you will not be able to send sound back over this same cable. You'll have to use the TVs audio out and connect it to an input of the AVR. The "HDMI out" on the AVR is just that Out and not In. For more questions I'd recommend checking out the RX-V3800 RX-V1800 thread over on AVSforum.com
