If you don't have any speaker wires hooked up to it and it won't turn on, the only thing left to check is the internal fuse. First, make sure it's unplugged from AC, then remove the top from the receiver, 6 or 7 small phillips head screws. At the back inside corner where the AC comes in there is either one or two fuses, check them. If you have a multimeter, dial it to resistance & sound (meaning when the two probes touch you will hear a tone) touch both ends of the fuse with the probes, if you get tone, fuse is good, if not, replace the fuse and all should be well. If you get tone, you've got either bad transistors or a bad power supply. Could be a 100-200 repair. Hope this helps

Yamaha rx v473 cuts off


disconnect all speakers, turn it on. If it stays on, connect one pair of speakers at a time and when it shuts off, that speaker is the problem. There may be a short in the wire or the speaker may be bad. If you get that far, try connecting the bad speaker with another speakers wires.

Hello, it is worth checking that there is adequate ventillation around the unit, especially if it is in a cabinet. Also check that there is no dust clogging the vents on the unit. Another cause for overheating is using speakers that require far more power than your receiver can provide, or speakers with an ohm rating that is lower than the amplifier provides. Also, check to see if any wires to the speakers are crossing over as shorting will cause the amplifier to overheat and cut out. Hope this helps.

Yamaha RX-V361 DVD cuts off w/ check SP cable message


This message means that speakers are not connected properly. What is their impedance? What is the impedance set on the receiver via Advanced Setup menu (see manual)? Check if it is not short-circuited.
Try the receiver without speakers connected. If the message goes away, receiver is OK and problem is in the connection to the speakers.

Yamaha RX-V1400 receiver powers off, in case it becomes louder


Hey, yeah that can be frustrating.

When you turn it up do you hear the relay or a clicking sound, then you turn it on and it comes back below the +2db?

Try unplugging All the speaker wires from the unit. Turn on the unit and listen for the click.
after the click, turn it up past the 2+ db mark and see if you hear it click or shut down. If it did not click off, then suspect a shorted crossover on one of your speakers.
2nd test is to plug in One speaker, and test it at high volume, it will not harm it. If it shuts off disconnect that speaker and try another. Only one at a time.
If it works at high volume, you need to isolate one of your speakers and i bet it has a shorted crossover that has been cooked. P.S. If one is bad, suspect they will fail at a later date.
If they all fail, use a friends speaker and try it before sending it to a repair shop.

P.S. i found one on ebay i think you can get for under $100 bucks in the box.

Immediate shut


Unplug all the speaker wires first, then unplug the unit from the wall for at least 24 hours, The plug back in without the speaker wires or anything else plugged in. Then see if it goes to the protection mode. If it does not, plug in each speaker at a time, and see if any speaker, when hooked up, makes the receiver shut down. If it does shut down, My friend, I'm afraid you will need to take this unit into a repair shop, OR get a new unit. Good Luck
