Question about Yamaha RX-V630 Receiver

2 Answers

Reduce output I recently notice the the output from my receiver seems to be reduced. When playing music I would have the volume set at -.50. This was plenty of output for easy listening. Now I find that this setting appears to be putting out less sound. I've checked all connection, all channels, each individual speaker and tried different sources of input (radio, cd, dvd)but have the same results. I can turn the volume up to get the output but am concerned on the cause of the reduced output?

    About a month ago had a small smell of burnt electronics and thought it was from the new TV I bought, but nothing was wrong. Yesterday heard my power regulator for the computer complaining (beeping) as if either I got a huge voltage spike in my electricity (or maybe something shorted somewhere) but the lights or circuit breaker of the house did not go out. Then at night went to listen to receiver and I notice the it was working partially. This is, everything works, sound through all channels, etc BUT it has lost VOLUME this is when volume at 35 out of 60, it sounds like 10 out of 60. Also it lost definition, the sub for example seems to have frequency missing. Could it be that some audio/output amplifier IC burnt? How many IC amplifier does this unit have? If one burnt would the symptom be as describe above?  Am I in the right direction to what is my receiver problem? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I'm not sure how long you've had this unit but over a period of time speakers being run at high output can lose some of their bite. Have you changed the furnishings in the room concerned. Heavy drapes and softer carpet and furnishings can attenuate your output. Are you playing the same recorded medium? Many CDs are compressed to maximum to please the headbangers whilst others can be natural and completely uncompressed, thereby giving lower volumes on some recordings. Are you sure the amplifier can breath. No buildup of dust and fluff on the internals. Bad air circulation can cause heat sensors to attenuate output in some amps too. Are you sure the bass/mid and treble are in their correct positions? Are you sure there's no inbuilt attenuator which may have been pushed in error? Does your unit have presets such as Rock, Classical, Disco etc? These can cause major output variations. Also many amps have inbuilt graphic equalizers which can be saved. Are you sure someone hasn't used it to cut back cartain frequencies. If the outputs are protected by fuses, remove then and replace them with new ones. Over a period of time fuses can become stressed due to beinf constantly warmed up and then cooled down. Occasionally ther can appear to the circuitry to be resistors and load the output down. Apart from these tips maybe a trip to the doctor but before doing so, double check your wiring and connections etc. Good Luck BMW

Peavey 16 fx

are you going from the board to a 'mic' input, or a 'line input' on the Mac? you will need to attenuate the signal to a mic input. try reducing output from the board by 50% and reduce the input level on the Mac by 50%, and see if the distortion is lessened or eliminated. From there balance board output to Mac Input until you find what sounds good outta the Mac.

SONY STR-DE445 UNLOCK CODE

Follow the steps below to troubleshoot if the word PROTECT or PROTECTOR is flashing on the A/V receivers display.

  1. Check the speaker wires and speakers for proper connections.
  2. Reduce the volume level. IMPORTANT: If the receiver is played back at maximum volume level it may enter the protect mode. Maximum volume listening will cause the receiver to run very hot and may drain the output capacitors.
  3. Disable the surround sound option if both the A and B speakers are being used simultaneously.
  4. Ensure the top of the receiver has proper ventilation to keep it from overheating.
  5. If the message only occurs when using a DVD player, the sampling frequency may be set too high. IMPORTANT: Some receivers provide compatibility with the higher sampling frequencies through alternate connections. Consult the owners manual for specific information.
  6. Unplug the AC power cord for about 1 to 2 hours to reset the output transformers.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required.

Onkyo tx sr605 stopped playing music what should i do

If the receiver is indicating "overload" or "protect" there is a load on the system. Turn the receiver off and remove all speakers and wires, turn receiver on and reduce the volume right down, if the word "overload or protect" stays off! it means there is a short in the wiring or one of the speakers. If however the word "overload or protect" comes on when turned on, it indicates a short in one or more of the audio output ic's in your receiver, this is where you will need a tv technician to troubleshoot further. If you not sure about checking it out just call a professional in to have the unit assessed.

When playing dvd or or on video 3 playing a directv movie. Receiver keeps shutting off and the screen says protect. Seems to do it when the movie scene gets loud.

check your wires if there not touching behind the speakers and receiver. when it says protect this means something is shorting out or crossing over. one other thing it may be is if a speaker is starting to go bad. (please rate)

Kenwood Receiver VR 806 turning off

Sounds like the music amplifier is different to the tuner audio amp. The music amplifier is now looking at an unbalanced impedance which is less than it should be. Therefore the output chip of the music amp has more current through it than it wants so it gets hot and shuts down.Put a four ohm wirewound resistor ( from Radio Shack ) in series with each surround speaker to reduce the current flow through the amplifier output.

I wish to reduce the level of sound coming from the sub woofer. I cannot get the main menu up on screen by pressing reciever setup buttons. I have seen it done by a freind so I know it is possible what am...

On your remote control, first press the "RECEIVER" button followed by the "SETUP" button.

Here is a link to the user manual (bottom right corner of page): http://www.eu.onkyo.com/products/TX-SR605.html

From page 70 onwards it is explained how to set up the speaker levels.

Alternatively you could of course adjust the volume on the subwoofer itself. Most (active) subwoofers nowadays offer an output volume adjustment.

Good luck.
