    Same issue. Appears I have to warm the receiver up with multiple attempts/pushes of the power button. Once the receiver is "on" it works fine. I just want to fix the initial power up. Its gotten very bothersome.

My Yahama 5740 did this exact thing. I took it apart and the Ground Screw in the middle of the Main Board was Stripped and not making good Contact. I run a Jumper Wire from Screw to Chassi and problem solved. Also check for "Cold" Solder Joints and loose Connections
Hope it's as easy for You!

This is the protection circuitry. Mine is doing the same thing. I'm trying to get a schematic for it right now ;-)

Hello: I have a Yamaha RX-V863 Receiver for 3 years. I try to on my receiver, but he start on, only for 2 or 3 second and then turning off immediately. I verify the wall outlet and the power in my house...

There is a load on the system, turn receiver off, disconnect speaker wires from the back, power on and turn volume right down. If the system stays on it means there is a short in the wires or one or more of the speakers. But if turns off with"wires and speakers diconnected" there is a short in one or more of the audio output ic's in the receiver and will need a professional to find out the extent of the problem.

Get your service manual here:

Yamaha RX V870 Manuals

FIRST be SURE your speakers are connected! A loose wire can cause shutdowns as your Supply tries to protect your output transistors!

Your Yamaha also HAS a onboard DIAGNOSTIC feature but it won't do you much good now because your supply is going into emergency shutdown so quickly... see page 15.

Suspect a problem in your Power Supply.


Inspect the electrolytic caps for leakage AND be sure the tops are flat and not bubbled.

Find your power supply on pages 46/47/48. It is VERY extensive and has MANY possible suspects. NOT for the weak of heart!

Yamaha RX-V595a receiver shuts off 2 seconds after its powered on

The first thing called out is the impedance switch on the back is not fully in one or the other position. Cycle the switch back and forth to make sure it will 'read' each setting, then turn it on.

Also make sure you if you have anything connected to its convenience outlets that they are not drawing more current than is allowed.

Did you buy it used or new?

Yamaha r-v98 turns on and immediately goes off. I haven't changed anything lately. It was playing then went off. Now it will not turn on for more than a few seconds.

Disconnect all speakers at the receiver then turn it back on, if it stays on, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot further. If it still shuts off, it sufferred a power spike and needs to be serviced. They will replace 5-6 caps and 2 or three other parts, roughly 250 or so. Hope this helps

Yamaha rx-v663 receiver worked only one week. next time i went to play stereo as soon as i turned it on it only stayed on about 2 seconds then shut down. i am able to try three times with same results...

The click is the autoprotection relay that should be allowing the amp to stay up. Try this... turn the speakers off if you can, or disconnect them then try again. Safety shutdowns are usually either heat or short circuits in the output stages. It doesn't stay up long enough to get hot so...

If it stays up withou the speakers on then the problems is probably external and easy to isolate.

Let me know.

I have seen this type of thing with several remotes.  You have some light source in the room that is interfering with the reception of the ir.  Turn off all light sources in the room and then try.  You might be surprised!

Yamaha RX-V596 Receive turns off after pressing Power

Sometimes the receivers turn off if the speakers are shorted in order to protect the AMP circuit. So try this - 1. Disconnect all cables (speakers), inputs from Tape Deck, VCR and other input devices), sub-woofers, rear speakers all. Except the AC power cord. Then turn it ON and see if it stays on. If it still has the same problem, then most probably your power circuit inside the receiver has a problem - like a shorted Capacitor or diode etc. Based on how technical you can be and what resources and time you want to spend, this is repairable. But based on the price of a receivers these days, it is not worth. Good Luck!
