Question about Yamaha HTR-5890 Receiver
Hi, I just bought a refurbished receiver, and brand new paradigm speakers. I decided to let the amp and speakers play overnight to "break them in". The receiver was working for 10 hours straight at low volume, before shutting down by itself. I then turned it on again and it lasted 10 minutes. After that it didn't want to turn on anymore, but would make a "click click" sound. The next day, I removed every connector from the receiver and tried again with no luck. I removed the cover and checked the 2 visible fuses to be ok. I then tried powering the receiver to see where the sound was coming from. Once I identified what seemed to be a relay, I tapped on it with the back end of a screw driver, and that fixed it!! My receiver now works, but I am wondering if I should replace that part anyway? I don't really know if this will change anything? any ideas? thanks!
The relay contacts are most likely bad in the relay and will most likely happen again. If you know how to solder, take out the relay and look up the numbers on the internet and see what you can find. If not, try to find where the manufactuer is located and call them to see where you can get a new relay. Good Luck
