Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver

Display Screen Goes Out

The receiver's display screen appeared dimmer than normal last night and now when I turn it on I can briefly see the message Main On then the display goes black. The receiver seems to work normally otherwise. I unplugged the unit for a few miutes then plugged it back in to the outlet, but this did not help. The display still goes out. What else can I try before sending it in for repair?

    I had also exactly the same problem with the front display of my Rx-V661which was becoming completely blank... As mentionned as solution, I replaced the four capacitors handling the display power. Then, my display was back. (I didn't replace the diodes which were well working with new caps, so...)

    I thought that problem was solved. But one week later, this problem was back and now, I haven't again nothing on front panel screen...

    I suppose that there is something else which damaged the caps....but what's wrong?

    Someone can help me?

    I have the same problem. I have just ordered the diodes and capacitors as suggested. The ordering was easy enough. Now we'll see what happens ...

I have a rx-v661 and the display went dim. I found out what set of diodes and capacitors handle the display power. It is on the "MAIN" Board at the bottom of the amp. The board is connected to the large heat sink in the amp. On that board near a small heat sink you will see four diode (D1001,D1002, D1045 & D1044) and four caps (C1000,C1001,C1002 & C1003); three of the caps went bad and two of the diodes. I replaced all of them to play it safe and the next thing you know, I have my display back. You can order the parts on-line. Here are the part numbers :

  • item part # desc
  • C1000-1001 (UR058220) C.EL 220uF 35V
  • C1002-1003 (UR268220) C.EL 220uF 50V
  • D1044-1045 (VN008700) DIODE 1SS270A
  • D1001-1002 (VN008700) DIODE 1SS270A

Whats wrong is a bad capacitor. This is why when you turn it on you see the display for a little while, then it start to fade away. Unless you have a wiring diagram for this unit and know how to solder, your going to have to take it in for repair. You can try to check every capacitor, but have you seen how many capacitors are in that baby!!!! I hope this help. Good luck!!

Please test using an external monitor first,this will exclude motherboard issues if the external display is normal.Nearly all screens turning white that I have observed is a screen fault requiring replacement.

Have Rado 193. am trying to sync analog and digital time. Manual says turning crown slowly adjusts minutes. Does not - only hours change

You can adjust the analogue hands without changing the digital ONLY when you have set the watch to 24hr fornat. Do this by going to the second Timezone screen (T2) and pressing the crown once briefly. If A or P appears, the time display is in 12-hour mode. If no letter appears, the time display is in 24-hour mode. To change mode, press crown briefly a second time.

Now go to the basic display where no digital info is shown. Pull the crown out. Now slow turning will adjust the minutes and fast turning the hours, but only of the hands. Therefore you can synchronize the two. After they show the same time, press the crown back in and adjust both times together using the crown as normal on the standard "Time" digital screen

Dim Screen on the 2001 Toyota Prius

Yes the screen dims automatically when the lights are on to suit night driving. I am not specifically familiar with the 01 model, however on my 08 model, the display brightness is also manually adjustable via a button located below and to the right of the display. The button is marked with a series of short lines assembled in an arc. Hope this helps.

Can't receive faxes

The problem is that some one has changed the answering method of the fax machine it writes "F/T" because the fax machine is set to FAX/TEL mode. So to make your fax machine to be on fax mode and on the screen to write " FAX " you need to press the button mode which is located under the screen exactly under the message " F/T " after you will press the button " mode " on the screen it will appear the current mode that the fax machine is set to, so you will need to press the " mode " button until on the screen will appear the message " FAX " when the message " FAX " will appear on the screen do not touch any button on the fax machine and after 2 second on the screen will return to the date and time display and again it will display on your fax machine
" FAX " and it will not display " F/T "

ViewSonic VA720 Screen displays briefly then goes blank.

it looks like the Inverter's gone in your screen, it works like a starter in a florescent tube, it 'kick starts' your screen to come on. Turning it on/off many times eventually 'kick starts' your screen and makes it come on eventually.

Samsung LTP326w

After few years of service with different TV providers I have problem with my TV. Last night my Samsung LTP326W just did the same think on HDMI connector and no mater what you do it will not turn HDMI video... it's connected to Verizon/Motorola DVR I called Verizon and they promptly replace DVR and HDMI cable but it didn't help at all, also sometimes when you power on/off I get message: The HD Content Protection of your display has been compromised Please use the YPBPR outputs for your HD connection...

When I switch to component cable it works just fine.
