Question about Yamaha RX-A1010 Aventage Audio video AV Receiver for Home Theater RXA1010

1 Answer

My Yamaha RX-A1010 turns on and shuts off by itself on occasion. It also randomly switches between inputs by itself.

I usually control the device using an app on my phone but find that even when the phone is off the device acts as though it is receiving instructions from somewhere.

Your receiver may be detecting random signals from some other source. Infrared is pretty much line of sight but RF can come from anywhere.

Yamaha RX-A1010 will not turn on anymore after a power outage

1st I would check to make sure that the outlet has power by using something other than your receiver to test it. Then turn your receiver to the backside and see if there is a reset breaker on the backside. Also make sure your receiver is plug directly into the outlet. If it still fails you might have a blown a fuse some receivers may have a barrel type of fuse holder that you can turn the cap till it spins off and you can replace the fuse but be sure to match it with the same exact kind with the numbers that the fuse is labeled with. But if your receiver doesn't have any type of fuse holder then you might have to open its case. If you think you could handle the next step then continue reading . Once you unplug the receiver and removed all the screws which hold the case usually are under and on the backside where you would connect all your inputs. Looking inside your gonna be looking for a small tube glass with silver chrome caps at the ends . If you know what they are you can test them with a volt meter or if you can visually see that the string or flat metal looking bar inside fuse broken. If it is than replace with the same info as I said before in my answer. If it's still looks good then you can test for further area like the switch point but before you do that please know your way around a circuit board because you can seriously get hurt otherwise bring it in to a service center. Good luck

I can't turn on my yamaha aventage rx-a1010. How to repair it?

It might be in protect mode. Try holding the 'info' and 'tone/balance' buttons while pressing the power button. If it turns on and shuts off again, than there is something wrong internally and it will need repair

Yamaha RX-A1010 died when connecting new cable

check the hdmi jack that you plugged into and make sure that none of the pins got bent. If the wrong pins touch each other or the chassis it could short out something and cause it to shut down.

Every time I turn my Yamaha RX-V565 on it switches to the AV1 input instead of staying on the HDMI input that it was on when I turned it off.

Set your TV, Sattellite receiver and audio where you want it when you turn on the set. Then hit the Scene button named "TV" and hold it down till the yamaha receiver says set complete and it will turn on to HDMI 2

Reciever shuts down by itself

Hi, i have similar/same problem, on initial power on, you have after 3 -4 secs an audible click from inside and all is good... if you then try to change inputs either via front panel and or remote, the unit switches off. if you change input prior to audible click, ie within 2-3 secs of power on , all is good and amp works fine, until you change input etc...very painful fault.. i thought it is sensing /checking the speaker outputs and detecting short etc ,so powering off to protect.. but then just my thought, i suspect something else, if anyone has the fix and can repair , please let me know.
