It's in protection mode. Disconnect all speakers and hold the Tone and Straight buttons while hitting the power button. Hold all buttons down for 3 to 5 seconds. This will turn off protection mode. Now power down then back on. If you haven't damaged anything it should work fine. Make sure all speaker connections are good. Always power down the unit before making any speaker or other connections.

I had a Power surge in Brisbane this week and found my YAMAHA HTR-3064 AV receiver unresponsive. Thanks to the Squish22's post, I tried the above approach, which is also listed for another Yamaha model (RX-V667) Unfortunately nothing happened. Another post suggested holding the 'straight' button as you power up to go into "advanced" menu (under DILLIGAF's post.) This also did not work.
I thought I'd try pressing all 3 buttons and powering up, which worked a treat. so here's exactly what I did:

Yamaha HTR-3064 - Protection mode reset:
  1. Remove the Power cord form mains power and wait 10 seconds.
  2. Plug cord in and turn on wall socket power.
  3. While holding down "info", "straight" and "tone control" buttons, press "main zone" power button. I got a click and it was good to go from there.
I had all of my speakers unplugged at the time and tested off the headphone jack before plugging all the cables back in again. Not sure if I needed to unplug everything, but I was about to dismantle and look for a fuse when I tried this method.
Saved me a new system / service fee. Hope it helps you too.
Thanks Squish22 and DILLIGAF for the head-start!

Just connect the VX7 to the 5730 using an RCA Y cable. It should help

So, I traced the signal, and I don't think it's the chip overheating but a bad capacitor... When you hear that "click" when you turn it on, that's the energy from the capacitor kicking over the relay inside. This cap keeps that realy closed to keep the amplifier running. If you follow these instructions, your amp will work fine.

Order these:

BOJACK 8X12mm 1000uF 10V 1000MFD 10Voltage ±20% Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors(Pack of 10 Pcs): Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific

Remove the HDMI control board from the faulty unit.

Remove the old capacitor on the HDMI control board pictured below.

Preheat your oven to 360 degrees after removal. Throw the entire board in for about fifteen minutes.

Let the board cool for about twenty minutes.

Solder in one of the new capacitors you just bought.

Put the unit back together.

I just performed this fix and my RX-V679 has been working for about five hours without a problem. I'll update if the issue comes back, but if you remove power overnight and the problem gets worse, it's not an electronic problem, but an electrical one. Power isn't reaching where it needs to be.

Should have very small hole, insert straightened paper clip to eject. Alternately accelerate it at 32bft per sec sqd

Hey! Make shure your amp and blu-ray player output and input signals are set to "bitsteam" and you are useing HDMI and optical connections. I hooked up my Onkyo tx sr 506 integrated amp to a Samsung BD 1400 player and everthing worked perfectly right out of the box. Perhaps your amp can"t decode DTS HD Master or your blue ray doesn't support it although i think a firmware upgrade may accomplish this. Put on The Chronicles of Narnia Prince Caspian which will DEFAULT to DTS HD MASTER 7.1 and see if it works. It's an excellent source to test your system. Picture and audio recieved 5 stars from Home Theatre magaziene and like i said, either your amp, or player doesn't support it or your interconnects are keeping it from coming thru. HDMI and OPTICAL connects and check your set up for "bitstream" Remember what Todd Rundgren allways said,"Everything will work if you just let it!"

It is most likely locked in protect mode. Try resetting by holding the TONE CONTROL and INFO buttons and pressing power. Watch the front panel display when you do this, and it will tell you what protect was tripped.

Good for you. You are a real techie.

Yamaha RXV571 | Answered on Mar 16, 2020

This problem can be solved by either of the following:
1/ Modify the PCBA to prevent the auto shut off feature from working. This is done by adding a 20k ohm resistor across pins 1 & 2 on the timer IC6. This resistor will prevent the timer from turning off the amp. To do this, unplug the amp. Remove the 8 screws on the perimeter of the rear of the amp. Carefully remove the rear plate. Disconnect the speaker wires at the speaker and the front panel connection on the main board. Locate IC6 on the bottom of the main board. Solder a 20k ohm resistor (1/4W) across pins 1 & 2. Pin 1 and Pin 8 are noted on the board. Be sure to insulate the leads of the resistor to prevent contact with the board. See picture. Re-assemble in reverse order.
2/ Some 5.1 channel amps allow independent control of the volume for the subwoofer in their setup. Check your amp to see if you can raise the signal level going to the subwoofer to prevent the amp from shutting off. You can then dial back the volume of the subwoofer using the volume control on the front._436.jpg

If your Yamaha output has the same impedance as the speaker, yes, you can. Attention - if the Yamaha amplifier has more available output power than the maximum allowed speaker power, the speaker may be damaged at a higher volume!

you have to use the optical cable input for the dts options to work i just had to do the same thing and now it wrks perfect!!

Both the player and the Yam need to know they're talking/hearing DTS and the feed must be digital.

Yamaha RX-V595A... | Answered on Feb 21, 2020

That is a check the speaker wire error, caused by a short or perceived short. If you look at the back of the receiver you may see 1 strand of the wire loose, they are very hard to see sometimes. You may use banana plugs as it is painful to get everything hooked up without a few loose strands.

If there is still the issue check your speaker connections for the same issue. If they are in ceiling/wall speakers disconnect them all then plug them in one at a time to narrow it down.

If the issue persists perhaps one of your speaker wires has a short somewhere, could be a misplaced drywall screw from hanging a picture, or a carpet tack strip, or a pet deciding it was a nice chew toy.

If you are completely sure it is none of those then I would say it is a bad speaker or receiver. Try changing in and out known good speakers/receivers if you have access to them to see which one it is.

Good luck
