Yamaha HTR-5990 Receiver

While adjusting the speaker levels using the onscreen menu, My receiver quit recognizing the surround speakers. Troubleshooting steps taken: Checked connections at unit. disconnected power for a few minutes and re-energized. Attempted to activate the surround speakers from the on screen menu. Switched surround wires to front terminals to confirm connections at speakers are tight. Unit is 1 year old and haven't experienced any problems.

    Have had this unit for a couple of years. In the last couple of weeks it has developed a problem where when the system is turned on - receiver normally in standby- there is an area of video in the same location as the setup menu that is gray with a smaller portion in the lower right corner in a different color. Selecting setup will bring up the menu and return clears the screen. If I adjust the volume the colored area reappears and I cannot see the volume level being selected.

I JUST EXPERIENCED THE SAME SITUATION HERE IS THE SOULTION YAMAHA SENT ME TO RESET THE SYSTEM HTR-5990 YAMAHA HTR-5990 FACTORY PRESET PROCEDURES All models require the STANDBY/ON button to be turned OFF to start the reset process. NOTE: The remote control cannot be used during the reset procedure. All necessary buttons to complete the reset process are located on the front panel of the receiver. This procedure is not intended to correct intermittent shut-off symptoms or problems MODEL: HTR-5990 (U.S.A. model/s) (BEFORE YOU CONTINUE, PLEASE READ THE ABOVE NOTES!) 1. Before you start this procedure, locate the MASTER ON/OFF button and the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button on the Front Panel of the unit. 2. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR RECEIVER’S MASTER ON/OFF HAS BEEN TURNED OFF. 3. With the Right Hand, press and hold the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button. With the Left Hand, press the MASTER ON/OFF button and HOLD both buttons for no more than “3” SECONDS, AT THE SAME TIME. SP IMP. * 8 MIN. will appear on the display, which indicates you are in the Diagnostics Mode. 4. Rotate the PROGRAM KNOB to the right (ONCE) until the display reads PRESET *CANCEL. 5. Press the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button (ONCE) and the display will change to PRESET RESET. 6. Turn the unit off by pressing the MASTER ON/OFF button. 7. Wait 5 seconds, then turn the unit on by pressing the MASTER ON/OFF button. You have now reset your component to the factory settings. NOTE: Yamaha receivers don’t have to be reset during normal operation. It is not recommended that you reset the receiver unless a setting has been changed that you are not aware of, or the receiver is not operating properly. The reset procedure will clear an incorrect setting that might be causing abnormal operation. GOOD LUCK

Can I connect two 4 ohm speakers to make it play on single 8 ohm speaker channel on a receiver


Yes, two 4 ohm speakers wired in series will present an 8 ohm load, though even with matched speakers they are likely to produce different volume levels.

It is probable the receiver will be quite happy using a single 4 ohm speaker if only modest volume levels are used. Many popular hi-fi amps quote power outputs for both 4 and 8 ohm indicating either could be used.

Surround problem with Yamaha HTR-5930 5.1 Channels Receiver


The signal that comes from most tv's via the optical output is a stereo signal only. That is what your receiver is reading. You would have to manually set your receiver to decode the signal into surround,.

I have a sony STR-DE897 and my rear speakers dont get sound when plugged into the surround back ports..Is there a certain setting in order for the rear surround spreakers to work? or does that mean the...


There are a few things required for the rear surround channels to operate;

1. The surround back channels must be enabled in the surround setup menu.

2. The media being played through the receiver must have audio encoded for the rear surround
channels. There are only a few exceptions to this but I'll exclude the explanation for simplicity.

3. The audio level of the speaker channels must be set high enough to be audible.


Enter the surround setup menu with your remote. Use the center button on the remote to toggle through the selections, press down on it to enter the selection.
You will navigate to a selection in the surround setup menu that says "surround back" or S/B with a selectable yes or no indication. Press on the center button to enable them.

Media like DVD or Blu-ray that has 6.1 or 7.1 channel audio has separate, or often referred to as "discrete" or "matrixed" audio intended for playback through surround rear speakers, depending on the music or movie. If your media is encoded for 5.1, then there will be no audio sent to these speakers. However, with the different modes of on-board digital processing of this receiver you can still have audio through these speakers.

Last but not least is the actual playing level of these rear surround channels. They may simply be adjusted to quietly. Enter the setup menu with remote, choose "level" and navigate to the rear surround channels. You can adjust the level up or down in 1/2 dB level increments by toggling left or right with the center button. Each surround channel can and should be adjusted independently and equally.

Should all the surround sound speakers be working when I am watching satelite TV? Mine do not, just the front left & front right have sound.


All speakers should be working. The display on the Sony unit will tell you which speakers are enabled with a box illuminated and each speaker that is decoding with the speakers abrevation eg SL for surround left also illuminated. If these are not displaying then you need to check your playback mode. If play back is set to 2CH you will only get the front speakers. Try setting play back to AFD ProLogicII, Movie, or Music. If this does not get the speakers running then check the speaker configuration in the setup menu. It should be set to 5.1, if not set it and press enter to save it. If this is setup correctly then try the level settings in your menu. Each speaker has a setting that can be adjusted up or down to effect the loudness of the speakers. If this does not do it then check the connectons at each end of the suround speakers ie, at the receiver and at the speaker.

Did you try changing the front & center speakers to a higher level as well as setting the surrounds to a lower level? Are all speakers using the same wire gage?

Sherwood RX-5502 receiver - get no sound.. checked polarity - OK... replaced speaker wire - OK... checked speakers on another device - OK.... tried phono and tuner and cd player - no sound with any........


Hi,

After doing all this troubleshooting on your receiver, Check if master volume on the surround levels are too low. Adjust master and surround level.

There may aIso incorrect selection of the input source. Select the correct input source.

If after doing this the problem still continue, it means the sound ic in the receiver is damage. the sound ic brings out the sounds from the receiver. You will have to open the receiver to locate the sound ic in the receiver and use the multimeter to read capacitors and change the damage ones.

Thanks for using Fixya.
