I have a wonderful old Yamaha M-40 Stereo Power Amp. It has a thump-prevention speaker protection circuit that does NOT kick off and engage the speakers...

Hi there. More than likely the power output stage has a problem (possible if the amp was on at the time of the surge). It would be best to have a proper component tester to check the stage components but component testers are expensive. But the good thing is that you have an other working amp. Since you don't have the knowledge or proper equipment I would suggest to open up both amps and compare the readings of the same points of each amp. A shorted or cut-off power semiconductor would show even on a multi-tester set at the diode scale. Check also ALL the fuses and fuse resistors related to the output stage (resistors under 1? (brown black black 1? or gold brown black 0.1?) .

Volume number reversed to -66.5 (example) And when we turn on tv the volume is at its max volume and blaring. Can't figure what setting to get into to fix. They all appear to be locked

Note: This procedure is done on the front panel of the receiver only. 1.Set the unit to Standby by pressing the Power button. 2.While holding down the Straight button, press the Power button. 3.SP IMP. 8 Ohm Min (Or 6 ohm) will come up on the Front Panel. 4.Press the Right Program Arrow button repeatedly until INIT-CANCEL comes up. 5.Press the Straight Button repeatedly until INIT-ALL comes up. 6.Press the Standby button to turn off the receiver. 7.The next time the receiver is powered on, the factory settings will take effect.

My yamaha RX-v1600 receiver volume not will only mute or play at one volume. I tried cleaning the mechanism but it did not help. Is there some wrong with the board.

Sometimes cleaning the potensiometer (mechanism as you described it) and lubricating them with electric contact spray does not fix the issue. Although if you havent done so, please purchase a good potensiometer/contact cleaner from an electronics retailer, take the cover off your amp and after blowing off ALL the dust that may have been accumulatet inside the amp, spray a bit of cleaner in the volume potensiometer from the terminal opening or any hole on the body. If it is of the sealed type then it has to be replaced. Please test the terminals of the potensiometer where they connect to the pcb with a component tester or if not available with a multi-tester set at ? 's (any scale that would give a reasonable indication when the potensiometer is set at the middle position). Test between one of the end terminals and the middle one. Indications should change logarithmically while you turn the knob slowly. If you get a sudden over range indication then that potensiometer is damaged and needs replacing.

Yamaha amplifier rx-v457 auto shot down.?

If the auto shut down is activated the moment the amplifier is turned on then there must be a problem with the output. Please check the speaker cables visually for short circuit. You can also use a multi-tester set at 20 ohms scale. Unplug the all the speaker cables from the amplifier and test at the cable terminals. You should get a reading anywhere between 4 and 10 ohms at each terminal. If the speaker.cables are fine then the one of the power outputs of the amplifier (front or central or surround) must be damaged. If the shut-down occurs while playing music for some time, you may have to remove the cover of the amplifier and check for dust accumulated on the heat sinks of the power output stages (aluminium plates with fins). Blow the dust off the sinks and the rest of the circuits.

How to turn on a turntable on Yamaha mc-600 sound system-- 50+ years old

If the turntable is a belt drive one then the belt must have deteriorated after all these years. Pull up (remove) the turntable disc platform. you will see a little motor shaft and the cut or deteriorating belt. You can order the belt from http://www.vintage-electronics.net/yamaha-mc-600-belt.aspx. Please make sure that you clean the black residue left on the motor shaft and the turntable platform where the belt runs with isopropyl alcohol before you put the new belt on.

Yamaha htr 5740 reciever i turn it on and it sounds like it powers up cause it clicks on but no display in the front panel

“it sounds like it powers up cause it clicks on but no display in the front panel” NO,it does not sound like power up due to "no display in the front panel" The relay controlling AC line power connected to LARGE POWER TRANSFORMER DOES NOT switch ON with the exception of voltage for FL tube(front panel) is down.Check standby board (AC inlet board) that is its reset signal and AC_PWR_DET are of paramount important. REMEMBER TO CHECK THOSE NON POLAR CBB Capacitors (their capacitances.)4bae7964-7459-4ded-b909-319dfd2698e3.jpg

What size banana plugs do you put on the Yamaha RX V673? My speaker wire is 16g. Do you use them on both ends ( to the receiver and the speaker) I ask only because this dum dum sold me 10 banana plugs for 5 speaker, if you needed them for both ends you would want 20. Right? 10 straight 10 angled.

The connectors are binding post or banana plug. I would use speaker wire and connect the speakers and on the back of the receiver. Refer to instructions page 20. You bought the plugs so who is to blame? https://usa.yamaha.com/files/download/other_assets/3/326893/RX-V673_manual.pdf

I get a intermittent loud static noise on a yamaha ysp-1000 sound bar. Lasts a while then works OK for a bit, untill it happens again. I Have unplugged all inputs. Problem still persists.

This is an indication that a component inside is failing or was not soldered onto the board properly. Without proper test gear, it would be very hard to find and without repair training and equipment you cannot fix it.

I have the RX-V995 model av receiver. when I press the power button, the display lights up for a second, then goes off with the clicking noise heard inside the amp. what should be the solution?

According to you symptom, “when I press the power button, the display lights up for a second, then goes off with the clicking noise heard inside the amp.” it is due to overcurrent protection. Enter self diag mode to confirm. DO NOT switch on the amp for three times; otherwise your amp will be locked permanently.
