I have had the Yamaha HTR 5150 for about 4 years now. I use it for the home theatre.
It is sparingly used.
Yesterday while playing a music CD it suddenly stopped. The display went off. When I pushed the power/standby switch the display came back for a few seconds and went off.
Now when I push the power on button, I hear a click inside the amp and from the speaker. The lights in the room flicker each time I push the button.
I have tried removing power supply for 30 seconds...
It just does not turn on and I love this amp.

Re: Not powering on
1. The power cord is not completely insered.
2. the impedance selector switch on the rear panel is not fully set to the upper or lower end - (set it when the unit is in the standby mode)
other then that, you will have to call for a service.

Check if accidently the cable is not physically damaged. What changed between yesterday (when it worked) and today? If you have a spare speaker, connect it and check if you are getting sound on this one. Some setting in your home theatre could also have caused a mute! Try to reset it to factory settings and play the music again.
This is a tough one, when you had it installed was the noise present, if so! I would call the Geek Squard back to home territory and have them do the job right "free of charge" If this showed up later, there are any number of possibilities, cable issues to a problem in the entertainment equipment. If you have spare cables sub them out one at a time in a effect to find the source
Sometimes volume controls are held on by an Allen type screw, which can become loose, allowing it to fall off. You should see a hole in the knob if it is. You might need a long thin Allen Key to get it back on.
Otherwise have checked my spares guide (though it's a few years old) and it seems Yamaha might only do their own spares.
The Yamaha can only drive powered subwoofers. Make sure that the RTD250 has it's own amplifier built in, you won't be able to easily run it off the yamaha if it doesn't.( the powered subwoofer will have a mains cord to power if it's correct) If it doesn't have a amp built in, easiest weay is to buy a cheap powered sub. Is the RTD 250 the sub fromthe RCA home theatre pack?
The owner's manual should have a section on how to balance the system. I don't have one at the moment, but I believe that this model also has a setup tone generator option. Look in the owner's manual or online at Yamaha for a copy of it. This will contain the instructions for the setup.
