Yamaha RX-V2095

Hey there! Nice receiver :0)
Sorry about your troubles. I've been where you are with an Rx-V2600. Would turn on and after a few seconds click off. I thought maybe it was bad wiring but even completely disconnected it would still do it.
I took it to a shop and I was told it was a bad channel. Luckily I mentioned I had a Denon receiver that had stopped working and he said he would take that as payment.
He fixed the Yamaha and it's been working for years.
If you search the internet you should find a local authorized Yamaha repair center. I would take it there. They marked charge like a $30-$50 fee to look at it but usually they apply that towards the repair.

How to connect a turntable to Yamaha Rx-v630

If your turn table has a ground wire with the R and L wires then you can not connect it to this receiver. Unless you have a switch on the turn table that chooses between internal or external amp. If you have the switch, pick external amp and then run your R and L into your TV/CD input. Good luck to you.

Yahama receiver Rx-630 not working

The problem might be caused by two major circumstances. 1)Touching wires 2)Overheating. I suggest you unplug all wires connected to the amp then turn on the amp. If it gets turned on then we know that the problem is that you have touching wires. If there is a short circuit somewhere, get rid of it. The ventilation is another important issue that you have to pay attention. It simply causes overheating.

My receiver will not turn on.

If everything is disconnected from the rear and it still will not turn on, you need to have it repaired. There are 5 power caps and a couple chips that go bad when hit with a surge or brown out. If you don't have a Monster surge or Panamax surge, or Furman. Get one! if you do, call them and make a claim! they will cover a power failure repair! Hope this helps. The average repair for this issue is 150-200. If you disconnect everything and it does turn on, follow this:
The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video2_bing.gif Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

Just clicks no power. Already checked for touching

I had a similar 'drop out' problem with my Yamaha RX-V3300.
Problem- Possibly loose speaker connections.
I have banana connections which I unplugged; tightened speaker terminal connections at back of receiver and then reinserted banana speaker connectors- which remedied problem. There is possibly some kind of loose connection either caused by the banana plugs or at speaker connectors at the back of the receiver, which was remedied (i.e. possibly temporarily) by reinserting the banana plugs.
I also previously thought something was wrong with the main on/off power relay which was 'dropping out' and replaced it, but then 'drop out' problem returned a few days later. I reinserted and tightened speaker connectors, which has it working again.

Yamaha RX-V630 Is not responding to the remote control unit

Replace the remote control with a universal remote (e.g. Logitech). It is more advanced and very user friendly with a help function if anything doesn't work.
Just follow the instructions in the unit's manual.
If you drop it; be sure to replace the batteries correctly.
Keep good batteries in it and enjoy the convenience of only one remote.
If still in trouble; just visit your local Yamaha dealer for help.

Yamaha RX-630; display light went out

It sounds like the LED for the display has burned out. The repair would require you to dis-assemble the unit to expose the front panel board. You will then need to melt the existing solder holding the defective diode and pull it out. Then you would install a new diode and solder it into the board. You will need to replace the existing diode with a new one rated for the same wattage. Also you should verify the the diode is getting the rated voltage to it using a fluke meter to make sure it is just the diode that is the problem. If you are not familiar with using a solder gun and circuit testing then you might want to call a technician. Let me know if you have other questions.

It has lost partially the mechanical connection between the volume control knob and the volume control pot.

The knob could be "stripped". A drop of a slightly resilient glue should do the trick. Do not use rigid adhesives, as this will prevent future service to this area of your receiver....accordianman
