Question about Yamaha DSP-A1 Receiver
This is an intermittent problem that has gradually got worse! After powering on the amp after about 2 seconds the full amp is powered (a noticeable click) then it shuts itself off! It did this sometimes during a movie and I put it down to current fluctuation. Then the phase of powering down after switching on started. It's now connected to a UPS, all the speaker and other cables have been checked and double checked for possible shorts (in fact the same fault occurs with nothing connected). Then some days (after 30 mins switching on and off) it will work without fail until switched back off. Any ideas?
The last click you hear before the amp turns on is the power relays for the amp circuit,these have 2 very small copper contacts inside them which after much time get corroded and cause high resistance when they try to power up the amplifier circuit.awkward to get to and desolder but can be opened up and serviced,done mine and a few friends with yamaha amps which use similar system,had no problem since,also worth checking for dry joints around amp chip i.c legs onto main board.

The DSP-A1 has an internal self diagnostic program which you can access from the front panel. The service manual shows how to do it and what the readout codes mean as far as the fault that caused the trip. Service manuals are cheap and readily available on the web.

My DSP-A1 is doing the same thing. The unit's internal circuit breaker is tripping. That's the click you hear. Mine was intermittent and I sent if over to the local Yamaha authorized service in Portland, OR for repair. If anything they made it worse. Now the unit is basically unusable. They kept the unit for 4 months and finally came back with a long list of items they think it needed (at $650+). I don't have any confidence that they knew what they were doing. I have heard some good things about Yamaha's west coast service (TAP Electronics) in Buena park, CA and may send it there. Otherwise it becomes a boat anchor or Goodwill donation I guess. Please let me know if you solved your problem and what it was. Thanks.
