Modern home-theater components monitor themselves electronically for potentially dangerous malfunctions such as damaged internal parts. When a unit's microprocessor senses a problem, it will typically shut down so that no further damage -- or potentially dangerous disasters like fire! -- occurs. Your receiver is identifying something upon turn-on and shutting down as a result. My guess is that you're going to need service for your Yamaha. There's likely no fix that you're going to find. You need a professional service technician.

Rx-v390 when i trun on power after few second auto shut off.. what could be the problem I changed all Fuse (4A 125V) still have same problem.

The problem is with either the Amplifier or the Speakers.

If you disconnect the Speakers and then turn back on and get the same fault then it is the Amplifier.

If it stays on OK then you need to turn off again and connect one Speaker at a time (turning off again between each one) until you find the fault Speaker.

If it is the Amplifier thats faulty then it could be a simple repair that would involve replacing some Capacitors but you would need a Soldering Iron and the knowledge how to de-solder and re-solder components to a PCB.

If you need any further assistance then just ask.

Connecting a subwoofer to a receiver without subwoofer out jack

Does your receiver have any kind of line level audio output? AUX OUT, LINE OUT or similar? If so, you might be able to send that a subwoofer. Most standalone subwoofers have their own crossover and level controls built in, so you can make adjustments there.

My Yamaha RX-V390 receiver when volume turns up it turns off

Does it display something on LCD? Maybe you have connected speakers with wrong impendance and the receiver is overheating.
Check the impedance of speakers, it should be at least 6 ohm. Also check the receiver manual if it has settings for impendace (6 or 8 ohm).

Yamaha RX V 657 - No Sound Output, and No input detection

Bad DSP chip. The only other possibility is if you have the "Direct" on. On the front of the receiver it's a small button. Also make sure your "Speaker Select" A/B is "on" You will see it on the display, it's also a small button on the front of the receiver. If all this is correct and you still have no audio, it's a bad DSP chip. Not worth repair, it's 400-500 repair. Not very common in a Yamaha RX-V series, but I have seen it. I'm a Yamaha Dealer. If you need further help, post a comment and I will be glad to help you further.

Yamaha RX-V995 receiver turns on & then powers off 2 seconds late

I suggest you run self diag.  press [FM/AM] key + [Input mode] key and press the [power/standby] switch.

ps prt = power supply problem
dc prt = shorted output or leakly cap in channel
tmp prt means to hot on heatsink

you'll likely have to measure the resistances of the output FETs to find a short,
