    The power wires leading to the transformer have current but only when disconected. The PCB relay still buzzes when powered on and power wires are disconected from transformer.

This could be the indication of an open resistor, or bad Capacitor in power supply. May not be visible to eye, but if you look in PS. there should be atleast one big sized cap and every PS has a bridge rectifier, this is usually 4 diodes in series, check them and see if any open, shorted

Yamaha v-r701 reciever It has sound but it is very faint. You have to turn the volume way up for it to play at a wisper.


NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead

If you are blowing the mains fuse, you likely have an issue in the power supply. This can be a bad rectifier or filter capacitor; or, less likely, some other component. The fact that you're asking the question suggests you should not try to fix this yourself.

Our Yamaha clavinova CLP-115 is buzzing, even with


Without power to the unit no sound should be generated. Make sure there are no other connections.

MAYBE you have a wall transformer behind it that is buzzing. MANY wall transformers develop buzz.

Another source is flourescent lights and even some of the low voltage halogens have noisy transformers in the base.

Fuse blows as soon as you turn it on. I disconnected all speakers and equipment and still have the same problem.


The power suply most likely has a problem. If it was the outputs, the unit would not come out of protect mode. Check the rectifier diodes for a short.

Cant be certian though, could be a host of other things.

Display is permanently "off" on the Yamaha RX-V620


Sounds like the LED that lights up the display has burnt out. An easy fix, if you're not afraid to take the front panel apart and resolder a new one.

Yamaha r-v701 receiver wont turn on


Usually a buzzing relay is an indication that AC has snuck into the circuitry. 99.999999% of the time, relays in home theatre amps are DC powered. If you power the relay with AC, it will buzz . I think you have a serious problem, that requires a service tech. Is the unit under warranty ?.....If so...great. If not, then I suggest you take it to a Yamaha shop, just because thay have access to all the necessary electrical diagrams and service bulletins. It may be possible that there is a factory modification out to correct an existing production problem with that unit, that only shows up later. If so, you should be eligable for the upgrade from Yamaha. If the unit is NOT under warranty, and it requires a factory mod, you may be eligible for a goodwill repair from Yamaha. Best of luck....Rob
