My yamaha rx-v461 won't turn on

I have all of my electronics plugged into a surge protector and all of my equipment came back on after a power outage accept my receiver. Does it have a reset button or something that I'm not aware of?

    But there is no fuse any where on this unit (neither on back nor on front panel).

    I guess the surge protector went off and disabled receiver. Is there a code to restart receiver?

I have a Yamaha htr-3065 HDMI receiver that won't turn on after we experienced a power outage. When I plug the unit in I get a buzz sound from transformer but still won't come on. The fuse and power supply...


If you have any electronics experience you should check the diodes or the bridge rectifier in the power circuit. Look for burned components or bulged capacitors.!!!Always unplug the unit and wait a few minutes before attempting any procedure!! I have found that capacitors usually fail due to voltage spikes which can happen when power is reinstated after an outage. Always use surge protectors on electronic devices. They have a component called an MOV that will absorb voltage spikes and save your equipment.

HOW TO PROTECT YOUR ELECTRONIC GOODS AGAINST POWER SURGES


I have only been giving advice on FIXYA for a very short while but have noticed that an awful lot of the people who relate their product issues , particularly complain about faults developing after power cuts / outages. It is apparent, from a description of the complaints, that damage is being caused by outages that may be a result of power surges blowing electricity sub stations.
There are a lot of damaged audio devices / tvs being affected. As such I advise you TO BUY SURGE PROTECTORS for all you valuable devices.
I have them around the house and although we only get an occasional power cut here in the UK I know that at times they have saved my equipment fron power spikes. The small cost is justified in the long run.

Yamaha RX V671 will not turn on anymore after a power outage


The protection mode has activated.
Reset the protection mode as follows and see what happens.

Connect power cord to mains and wait 5 seconds or so. While holding down "info" and "tone control" buttons, press "main zone" power button briefly and release, but keep "info" and "tone control" buttons pressed for at least 3 more seconds. The unit should power up. Assuming the reason for the protection has passed or been fixed, the unit can now be turned off and then back on with the "main zone" power button to restore normal operation mode.
If the protector activates again, the fault is still present and the unit needs to be repaired, ideally by a Yamaha authorised repairer.
There are dangerous voltages present in high power amps and a lot of grunt in terms of stored energy - best left to trained technicians.

Yamaha rx-v461 turns on then off


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for ntermittent shutdown.

Need a hookup diagram for yamaha rx-v461 plus yamaha yst-sw216 please


Hi,
Here you can find the manual for your subwoofer. Looking at its back side, it has 2 RCA plug input for stereo. Receiver has just mono sub output, but as low frequencies are not easily locatable, mono is perfectly OK.
Just connect receiver SUB-OUTPUT with RCA cable to your subwoofer's RCA LEFT input. Then adjust volume to match rest of your speakers.

Yamaha rx-v461 not working


you have a faulty circuit somewhere, whether its in speaker wiring, or power source, i dont know, but your reciever has an automatic circuit breaker in it for protection, and a faulty circuit will trip it, i would assume it is a power source problem since it wont turn back on, check wiring, plugs and look around, and smell for burnt, or hot components.
