SOURCE: turns on then off.

It probably needs a set of output transistors, 2 pre-amp transistors and a 5.6v zener diode. Possibly a resistor or two. I've fixed many of these. Definitely a job for a pro.

SOURCE: trying to program my Receiver, a Yamaha HTR 6130 to the AUX on my Comcast remote, but neither of the codes they gave me seem to be working.

Do a code search from comcast. If you have the Comcast manual it shows you how to search for codes manually, it can take 15 to 20 minutes for you to do it, however, it should fid your code. The only drawback is that you can only control the volume and power, you won't have input or soundfield control. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Microphone for my YAMAHA HTR-5440

Let me make this clear to you that your Yamaha does not support Microphone but the trick is you can still do it. All you need is a stereo jack to a RCA connector cable.Check this out It is easily available in the market. The stereo jack will fit into your microphone and the RCA to your Amplifier/Reciever. Plug the RCA into CD/Tape input but not in the Phono n do your thing. Let me know if this works,coz I'm really curious.

SOURCE: no sound from htr-5840 when switched on. I hear

These units have protection circuits that will prevent the speaker relay from engaging if there is a problem detected. There is also a circuit that causes a delay in the engaging of the relay to allow the amp to "settle in". This prevents the old "thump" that was common in older models when the set was first turned on. In your case, either the RC circuit is faulty causing excessive time to pass before turning on the relay, or there is excessive voltage floating around that the protection circuits are detecting and thus preventing the relay from turning on.

In any case, this will require additional diagnosis using some test equipment. This is not a problem that will be easily resolved remotely. Please bring this unit to a repair shop for an estimate. Once you have that info, we can assist with the actual repair.

On Yamaha HTR-6295, optical input, I get no sound and a message "Decoder Off". Book says to switch the decoder to "auto', did that. Tried a different bluray player and a different optical cable.

Hello Garry, ask, have you tried on both AV1 and AV3 fiber optic inputs on your Yamaha?
Because apart from these two inputs of Fiber Optics, the Yamaha, has an Optical Fiber Output, which could lead to a connection error
I sent you the link of the User's Manual so you can download it, on page 5, it shows the back panel of the HTR-6295
I hope my comment has served you
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Garry, pregunta, has probado en las dos entradas de fibra optica AV1 y AV3 de tu Yamaha?
Porque aparte de estas dos entradas de Fibra Optica, el Yamaha, cuenta con una Salida de Fibra Optica, la cual podria llevarte a un error de conexion
Te envio el link del Manual de usuario para que lo descargues, en la pagina 5, muestra el panel trasero del HTR-6295
Espero te haya servido mi comentario

go to this website to see what happens to your amp.
