Ditto, i've got all 5 speakers without the Subwoofer. The subwoofer hasn't worked from day one, but I delayed replacing the unit for too long and don't have the warranty, I looked at all soldered connections and none of them have come un-soldered and all connectors are properly connected, can't think of anything but broken component that would cause it from here, nor can I think of a quick fix

The first thing id look at is the fuse you have to open this up to look at this.Look inside the fuse and see if theres a rod like thing going from end to end.If there isnt thats your problem or if you see a fog kinda thing in there or if the walls of the fuse is black like a burn would represent.Most likely this is your problem but it could be more further of a problem than i anticipate.
"I have this sub. The system connector jack needs a 12V DC signal to turn on. If you don't have a suitable Yamaha receiver with this connection, use any 12 V DC adapter with a 1/8 in mono plug (the tip should be positive)."
I imagine the subwoofer could be opened up and whatever circuitry is enabled by the Control signal could simply be jumpered "true" so it is always ON. That would mean the amp would be drawing power at all times, though.
ok, temporary cheap fix... (i mean in a ******* engineering kinda way ;-) . . . ) since your primary receiver has a sub-out RCA plug, you can hop into the local pawn shop, buy a cheap receiver and an RCA line splitter, and connect the primary sub-out to the CD or any input EXCEPT phono (resistance is different on the phono rca's). remove the plate from the sub and run the speaker wire from the "pawn stereo" directly to the speaker. replace plate on sub to keep box sealed, and adjust receivers to desired level of bass & volume. You have spent $50 and now have a decent sounding system again.
Yes, that type of connector is often used for a VGA signal for a computer monitor. But in this case it is an all-in-one connector Yamaha used in order to simplify the hookup of this home theatre system. Unfortunately, the subwoofer is only usable with the DVR-S300 receiver/DVD player.
You can connect the VX7 to the 5730 using an RCA Y cable like the one shown in the picture below. You get your one connection for the receiver and 2 for the VX7. These are available at any electronics store. Remember that the cable should be long enough to go from the receiver to where subwoofer will be placed. Hope this helps. Let me know.
