Yamaha Audio Players & Recorders - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

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!"

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

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

Turning the power off and then on again should reset it.

Have you checked the wall outlet first? Then make sure the cable is firmed plugged into the receiver.

Hi Andrew Smith, as you comment, the problem would be in the remote control
You can do a test to see if the remote control is broadcasting
You put the camera of your cell phone focusing on the emitter of the remote control, press any key on the remote and through the camera you will see that the emitting LED turns on (this happens through the cameras of the cell phones detect infrared rays, our view can not do it directly)
With this method you can check if they are emitting each key of the remote control
If you don't emit, you can try cleaning the internal contacts
Try to carefully disassemble the remote control
Separate the plate and the rubber template from the keys, clean the latter with some neutral soap, removing the grease that forms in the contact area, on the other hand, clean the plate with a cloth dampened with a glass cleaner, NO USE ALCOHOL in any case, let all parts dry and reassemble
Take the test and comment
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Andrew Smith, por lo que comentas, el problema estaria en el control remoto
Puedes hacer una prueba para ver si el control remoto esta emitiendo
Colocas la camara de tu celular enfocando al emisor del control remoto, presionas cualquier tecla del remoto y a traves de la camara veras que el LED emisor se enciende (esto sucedepor las camaras de los celulares detectan los rayos infrarojos, nuestra vista directamente no puede hacerlo)
Con este metodo podras comprobar si estan emitiendo cada tecla del control remoto
Siencuentras que no emiten, puedes probar limpiar los contactos internos
Trata de desarmar con mucho cuidado el control remoto
Separa la placa y la plantilla de goma de las teclas, limpia esta ultima con algun jabon neutro, sacandole la grasitud que se forma en la zona de contactos, por otro lado, limpia la placa con un pa?o humedecido con algun limpiador para vidrios, NO USES ALCOHOL en ningun caso, deja secar bien todas las partes y vuelve a armarlo
Haz la prueba y comenta
Saludos Franco Dosil

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!

Hi Tony mucci, to connect your Yamaha EQ-70 equalizer to the RX-661, you must use two double RCA RCA cables and the Line IN connection of the EQ-70, you go to the RX-661 MD / CD-R Rec connection and the Line Out connection of the EQ-70 you go to the MD / CD-R Play of the RX-661
This equalizer will work with the analog audio signals, but not with the digital ones
I hope you can connect it
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Tony mucci, para conectar tu ecualizador Yamaha EQ-70 al RX-661, debes utilizar dos cables RCA RCA dobles y la conexion Line IN del EQ-70, vas a la conexion Rec de MD/CD-R del RX-661 y la conexion Line Out del EQ-70 vas a Play de MD/CD-R del RX-661
Este ecualizador va a trabajar con las se?ales de audio Analogicas, no asi con las digitales
Espero lo puedas conectar

You have this backwards. The remote control is the source of the codes that apply to your Yamaha amplifier.
