Start by checking the fuse, take the cover off the reciever and look for a small glass fuse attached to the board. If it's blown replace it.

When I try to turn up/down the volume from the remote the knob on the reciever does not move. I can hear the motor trying to compute the command of the volume. All other functions work on the receiver

Remove the volume knob by pulling it straight out off of it's shaft. Use a dry cloth to clean off any visible crud and dust. Spray silicone lightly; the shaft and the shaft washer. Replace knob by aligning it by it's shape and work the silicone into the volume mechanism by twisting the knob a few time. Now try it with the remote.

Is it a good idea to upgrade capacitors in power supply,nd othe routput areas

You can replace with elna rubycon FRAKO or F&T caps a good size , but aware that you will have the capacity exactly the same and the voltage a 10 volt higher because of new capacitors of the same value can have a smaller size with the same voltage and capacity and the little size format can be giving a not nice sound but also all replacement capacitors in the beginning have a 2 days neccesary Black-gate or some ELNA caps much longer before it will sounds good , if you have had leaking caps like the brand of ITT if used especially the big blue ones, or nichicons clean the print outdoors with a nose pliers use on a canister gaslighter gas and spray on the free positions on the print where the leaking capacitors where placed and also to clean the whole print . it removes conductive materials and also if you have ones in your life have wallpapered indoors and have prepared wallpaper paste and this amp was in the same room you have luck by this tip because methyl cellulose can be highly conductive eventually creep and especially static seen very high electric malfunctions if you get your fingers on places without cleaning also after years !!! , and now you have your amplifier open and wish to customize it its your chance to prevent hidden faults, especially if you want to brush up on vintage equipment with analogue techniques. Yamaha vintage capacitors if you have a capacitance meter you will see if you have a capacitor that looks good in most times if you measure it you have sometimes a remarkable value because the capacitors have a strange tolerance that will not deformed down but to high 100 mf can be have an capacitance of 230 mf too great tolerance that is not a problem if all the capacitors are not replaced , but if you have checked this you will know you must replace ALL the capacitors at the same time (not the very little ones ) but measure is important or there are components that will be burning out , strange and remarkable but it could happens. good luck .

How do i connect an equalizer to a Yamaha rx-v995 reciever?

Connect the EQ to the Tape IN and OUT jacks and switch the Rec OUT/Zone 2 to Tape/MD. That is my best guess without having the owners manual....

How do you connect a Nakamichi surround sound system to my Phillips tv model 42PF7220A/37

I'm confused. The message header shows a problem with a Yamaha RX-V995 receiver. As for connecting a Nakamichi (or any surround system) to a TV - the only connection would be the Monitor output (video connection) to an appropriate video input of your TV. If it is a Nakamichi, it is a little older and probly predates the invention of HDMI cables. My guess is you will either use the S video output or Composite video output to the TV's input with similar connections. This allows you to route whatever video sources you have connected to the Nakamichi to the TV.

Remote no longer works for volume control

Guys, I might have accidentally found the problem because the fix worked for me :). I have the RX-V995 and for the last 2+years or so, I had resorted to getting up and using the knob manually for volume control. System will show 'voluem up/down' in the display, but the knob didn't rotate. Same problem as yours.

I was getting ready to buy the service manual, find the knob motor which I thought was the main culprict and replace with a new one.

So I took out the top cover (just a few screws), the front face-plate (again just a few screws. The inner details were all visible. The volume knob circuit board was vertically placed. They were all covered in a good layer of dust. I got my Dyson vacuum cleaner and gently and carefully tried to **** up all the dust that had settled down. With soft front brushes, I agitated the dust I couldn't reach with dyson wand direclty, once dust were loose, dyson did a great job even with picking up those last dust pieces.

I couldn't succeed in taking apart the volume knob circuit board, as I was still awaiting for the service manual. I put all the covers back on and guess what? I used my remote and the knob was moving again. Responding very well, the knob made the full turn, when I was on the remote. It has been working perfectly for the last few days now.

I think I know what was happening. Teh top of the RX-V (and I am sure many Yamaha receivers) are very porous to allow for good heat dissipation. Over time, this allows a large amount of dust to collect on top of the parts. Most parts are electronic (not mechanical) and hence don't get affected by the dust. But the few mechanical parts might have adverse affect if dust settles down in between the rotating mechanisms.
My volume knob had stopped responding to remote command, very slowly. Initially it worked a little, missed a little, then it missed a lot and eventually it didn't rotate. That proves the theory to some extent that if the motor had completely failed, it would stop working from the get-go, not intermittently. Dust build-up provided intermittent contact between the parts and hence the response was intermittent.

The dyson vacuum did a great job in pulling out those fine dust from such parts and amazingly, things are looking very good at present. Honestly, I hadn't the slightest hope that vacuuming would fix the problem. I had vacuumed to make it easy for me to work on the parts :).

So, it doesn't hurt at all to just give it a try. Do open the covers so that you can reach closer to the real boards and parts.

Good luck and let us know!!!
