Yamaha Audio Players & Recorders - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
I have a Yamaha Rx-v765 receiver. I've hooked up surround sound in the inside and all of that works great.
The connections should tell you that. If it has sockets for two sets of speakers and two inputs for the sound then it will be a stereo model.
What you can do to test the system is to disconnect the speaker connections to the receiver and use a 1.5 volt battery connected across each speaker cable end. For only a brief time. At the other end you should hear the speaker pop. I suspect you will need two people to do this. Make certain the volume control unit is on full.
If you don't hear the sound of the pop the cable is either faulty or disconnected somewhere.

Yes, there are relay type switches associated with those outputs. Your RX-V1 is not dying.
Just plug a pin plug in and out of the dead channel to bump the switch. You will hear the speaker
come on. If it doesn't come on,do the plug jack in an out of the pre out again. It will come on.
You can use the test tone to check all channels and rebalance volume levels. You are making the
pre out connect to its power amp. It seems the problem got better when activating those switches. Most likely a cleaning issue. You can also jump the mains and center, and there is also
a modification to jump all channels. I bought my RX-V1 very cheap because of this and love it.
Of course outboard power amp would solve all, but getting this reciever to connect to it's own
power amp has been thrilling as far as bang for the buck. I do use the front effects also, and like
them. It may seem like a pain, but it is worth it to get those channels going.

As a safety precaution, when the protection circuitry operates 3 times consequently, the capability to turn on the power is disabled.

Plug the power cord out. Plug it back in.
Press the following three buttons at the same time for 5 seconds: Main Zone + Info + Tone Control
The receiver will open.
