Question about Yamaha HTR-5560 Receiver
My receiver has been having problems for the last few days. I first noticed when I was listening to the radio and out of the blue, the receiver shut itself off. Then, a few days later when I tried to turn it on it turned itself immediately off. Over and over I pressed the button until finally it received power and came on. Last night when I tried to turn it on it made a clicking sound but their is nothing on the screen that comes up and it does not have any sound. The warranty is expired and I took it apart, but I can't tell what is wrong with it.
SOURCE: Double clicking sound- no power
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

This maybe an easy one. Have you unhooked all the wires going in to the stereo. "SP wires" means you have wires to the speakers are touching and the stereo is shutting down to avoid overloading. Hope this helps...

When it shuts off, does it display anything on the front like "ck speakers" you could have a shorted wire or bad speaker. Sounds more likely than a bad receiver. Yamaha is pretty bulletproof in "self preservation" circuitry! about the only thing that takes them out is lightning and major power surges. I have been selling and installing Yamaha receivers since 1995 and have only ever seen one with a problem that was unrelated to power. and I've done hundreds. If your not using HDMI, and the Video portion of the receiver, I would definately keep the unit $ 1500.00 is no cheap receiver. Try disconnecting the speakers, then turn on the unit with a source connected like cable/sat/fios on then crank the vol and let it set, if it cuts out, yes you've got a problem internally, however, I would stronly suggest metering all of the speakers and wires for shorts. There is an internal fuse as well right near the power cord, you have to pop the top to get to it, If you have a multimeter check the fuse with resistance tone. If you get tone, you have a good fuse if not If you need to replace it. They can be found at Radio Shack etc. If the fuse is OK, chances are you've got bad transistor(s) and needs to go to service. Repair should be under 200, well worth it. If you have further questions, post a comment and I will get back to you ASAP. Hope this helps

Since this is only happening when running DVD I would troubleshout surround sound speakers/ subwoofer or whatever speaker you are using when watching DVD and is not in use when watching TV:
1.) Make sure the speaker wire is not shorted at speakers as well as at receiver. Depending on method used to connect the receiver and speakers you may have short circuit even when you think you connected receiver and speakers properly.
2.) Make sure the polarity of the speaker wire matches the receiver.
