Could be a bad cable or a bad HDMI connection. Does the TV have regular analog cable out that you can try to see if the signal is good?

Depending what happened is the key to solving this, chances are the audio outputs got very hot causing a short which overheated the capacitor, I would inspect and test parts near by to be sure no other part has been compromized. Check all speaker wires for shorts, "a common problem" and take your time when servicing, if unsure! have a professional assess.

I JUST EXPERIENCED THE SAME SITUATION HERE IS THE SOULTION YAMAHA SENT ME TO RESET THE SYSTEM HTR-5990 YAMAHA HTR-5990 FACTORY PRESET PROCEDURES All models require the STANDBY/ON button to be turned OFF to start the reset process. NOTE: The remote control cannot be used during the reset procedure. All necessary buttons to complete the reset process are located on the front panel of the receiver. This procedure is not intended to correct intermittent shut-off symptoms or problems MODEL: HTR-5990 (U.S.A. model/s) (BEFORE YOU CONTINUE, PLEASE READ THE ABOVE NOTES!) 1. Before you start this procedure, locate the MASTER ON/OFF button and the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button on the Front Panel of the unit. 2. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR RECEIVER’S MASTER ON/OFF HAS BEEN TURNED OFF. 3. With the Right Hand, press and hold the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button. With the Left Hand, press the MASTER ON/OFF button and HOLD both buttons for no more than “3” SECONDS, AT THE SAME TIME. SP IMP. * 8 MIN. will appear on the display, which indicates you are in the Diagnostics Mode. 4. Rotate the PROGRAM KNOB to the right (ONCE) until the display reads PRESET *CANCEL. 5.

The reset procedure will clear an incorrect setting that might be causing abnormal operation. GOOD LUCK

You must be sure that you also have "audio" cables connected to the receiver to make this all work. As far as the TV is concerned, the same applies....accordianman

The switch between the speakers and the headphones is controlled by a small mechanical switch from the headphones socket. To have them both active all you need to do is to open the receiver and rewire the socket, bypassing the switch - an easy 15 minute job if you know what you're doing. But you need some experience in electronics to do it so it will be better for you to take it to your local repair shop - they shouldn't be asking you more than $75 for that.

Try really uninstalling the audio device first, then reboot and install. Sometimes a driver reinstall or update fails if you don't uninstall it.

Are you certain that you have the right drivers?
