20 Most Recent Yamaha RX-V473 5.1 Channel Network AV Receiver Questions & Answers

I have the same problem, it seems the airplay connection is easily lost, it never plays for longer than an hour without itunes losing the receiver, then i have to reset the receiver so that it appears in itunes again, very annoying. I spoke to Yamaha and they are not aware of any issues but clearly there is one. A quick workaround is to bring the receiver up in a browser by typing in its IP address, go to IP Address tab and simply apply without changing anything, this causes the receiver to initialize its network function as you will see the amp resetting and it will then appear in iTunes. This doesn't work through the units setup without changing settings and then changing them back again. Hopefully this is just a glitch that will Yamaha will fix in the next firmware update, I am running 1.14 update.

Should have very small hole, insert straightened paper clip to eject. Alternately accelerate it at 32bft per sec sqd

It is most likely locked in protect mode. Try resetting by holding the TONE CONTROL and INFO buttons and pressing power. Watch the front panel display when you do this, and it will tell you what protect was tripped.

If your Yamaha output has the same impedance as the speaker, yes, you can. Attention - if the Yamaha amplifier has more available output power than the maximum allowed speaker power, the speaker may be damaged at a higher volume!

Turning the power off and then on again should reset it.

Hi Andrew Smith, as you comment, the problem would be in the remote control
You can do a test to see if the remote control is broadcasting
You put the camera of your cell phone focusing on the emitter of the remote control, press any key on the remote and through the camera you will see that the emitting LED turns on (this happens through the cameras of the cell phones detect infrared rays, our view can not do it directly)
With this method you can check if they are emitting each key of the remote control
If you don't emit, you can try cleaning the internal contacts
Try to carefully disassemble the remote control
Separate the plate and the rubber template from the keys, clean the latter with some neutral soap, removing the grease that forms in the contact area, on the other hand, clean the plate with a cloth dampened with a glass cleaner, NO USE ALCOHOL in any case, let all parts dry and reassemble
Take the test and comment
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Andrew Smith, por lo que comentas, el problema estaria en el control remoto
Puedes hacer una prueba para ver si el control remoto esta emitiendo
Colocas la camara de tu celular enfocando al emisor del control remoto, presionas cualquier tecla del remoto y a traves de la camara veras que el LED emisor se enciende (esto sucedepor las camaras de los celulares detectan los rayos infrarojos, nuestra vista directamente no puede hacerlo)
Con este metodo podras comprobar si estan emitiendo cada tecla del control remoto
Siencuentras que no emiten, puedes probar limpiar los contactos internos
Trata de desarmar con mucho cuidado el control remoto
Separa la placa y la plantilla de goma de las teclas, limpia esta ultima con algun jabon neutro, sacandole la grasitud que se forma en la zona de contactos, por otro lado, limpia la placa con un pa?o humedecido con algun limpiador para vidrios, NO USES ALCOHOL en ningun caso, deja secar bien todas las partes y vuelve a armarlo
Haz la prueba y comenta
Saludos Franco Dosil

Hi Tony mucci, to connect your Yamaha EQ-70 equalizer to the RX-661, you must use two double RCA RCA cables and the Line IN connection of the EQ-70, you go to the RX-661 MD / CD-R Rec connection and the Line Out connection of the EQ-70 you go to the MD / CD-R Play of the RX-661
This equalizer will work with the analog audio signals, but not with the digital ones
I hope you can connect it
Greetings Franco Dosil

Este ecualizador va a trabajar con las se?ales de audio Analogicas, no asi con las digitales
Espero lo puedas conectar
Saludos Franco Dosil
