Question about Yamaha RX-V2600 Receiver

4 Answers

Yamaha RX-V2400 I have a Yamaha RX-V2400 AV Receiver Ser. No. Y194302VX When I turn it on, it comes on as it always has but it automatically shuts off in less than 5 seconds. If I turn it right back on, it shuts off even quicker. I have it completely disconnected from all speakers and components now and it still comes on and shuts off automatically. What do you recommend?

    I've been having the same problem .
    Over the last few days, my receiver (Yamaha RX-V2400) has begun suddenly switching off while I'm listening to music, watching TV, etc.  It doesn't matter what the input or volume level is, although if the input volume level suddenly jumps (e.g. gunshot on a soundtrack)  or if I raise the volume on the receiver, it will definitely turn right off.  And when I switch the receiver back on, it switches off immediately.

    I checked the troubleshooting section of the manual and it seems as though a protection circuit is being activated.  I have the impedance on the receiver set to 'minimum 8 ohms' (the other option is 'minimum 6 ohms').  I tried both settings and had the same results.  I also checked all speaker wires and nothing seems to be touching.  

    Please let me know if you have any other suggestions.  This sucks.

    I'm also having the same problem. I took the receiver back to where I bought it and they shipped it to an authorized Yamaha repair place. After 2 weeks I got a phone call from the store telling me that that they were told by the authorized Yamaha repair place that they could find nothing wrong with the receiver and that it is working fine. They shipped it back to the store. I picked it up yesterday. However when I plugged it in, I got nothing. No power at all. I took the unit to a local repair shop and they are going to check it out. I'll keep you posted. Has anyone out there contacted Yamaha about getting a replacement? I have only had my unit for less than 3 years and have loved it. Until now.

    I found the source of the problem - or my problem anyway: when the
    receiver overheats it automatically shuts off. I had foolishly stacked
    a couple of components on top, not allowing enough space for
    ventilation and didn't realize how hot it was getting. I've since had
    a custom cabinet built, the receiver sits alone on a shelf with plenty
    of airspace and I've had no problems since.

    I have the same problem with my yamaha rx-v3300 which i have had for 3 or more yrs. Find that the power tends to shut off quicker when the sound field is set for dolby digital or enhanced digital so ive been setting it on the non-dolby tv/sports variety setting and it seems to stay on longer. Read the same material in the manual about the circuitry protection triggering due to heat so im trying to ventilate the cabinet box to see if that resolves the problem. Really like the receiver and not ready to junk it just yet so if anybody else has a solution other than that please respond. Thanks guys!!

    I have a Yamaha RX-V2400 that shuts down on itself within 5 seconds of
    turning it on. The problem can last from a day to a few weeks, then I
    won't have a problem for a few weeks - then the problem repeats itself.

    I brought it in for service a year or so ago and when I got it back had no problems for a few months then it all started again.

    Do I try service again elsewhere...or scrap a not so cheap receiver.

My local repair man replaced the power supply ($250). Everything worked great...for about a month. Now power keeps shutting down. I'm very frustated. The folks at Yamaha aren't very helpful either. I'm checking connections and will post with further updates. This unit is only 3 years old.

Get another receiver! I had the same problem and had the power supply replaced $250 and after 3 months it started doing the same thing.  I just purchased a Pinoeer Elite VSX 90TXV.

When receiver turns off, it is usually due to badly connected/configured speakers. Try powering on the receiver without speakers.

Yamaha RX V2400 keeps shutting off

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
