Yamaha receivers have built-in computer controlled protection circuitry that activates under certain overcurrent conditions. This means that the device draws too much current through the amplifier or the power supply and the built-in computer switches off the receiver.
As long as the device has adequate ventilation, you’re good to go.
This is a side effect of using the HDMI ARC function as the default setting is AV1. Either disable HDMI ARC and use an optical cable from the TV to the AVR, or use a programmable remote (e.g. Harmony) that can automatically switch the input back to the one originally selected.
You probably have your TV on and your games console or Blu-ray player is on. Or you turned on your receiver and turned on everything else. Whatever happened, you need to disable HDMI CEC in the AV devices that turn on spontaneously. You need to go into settings and find and disable HDMI CEC.
There are several ways to determine if your receiver channel is burned out. One way is to check the sound output from the speaker. If you can’t hear any sound at all, or the sound is distorted, the channel is probably burned out. Another way to tell is to check the indicator light on the receiver.
Press the right program arrow key repeatedly until INIT-CANCEL appears. Press the even key repeatedly until INIT-ALL is displayed. Switch the receiver off and on again. Now the receiver has reset.
Registered. I would leave it on. IMHO it’s better to leave the receiver (or preamp/amplifier) on all the time. As a result, you won’t hear popping from your speakers and your electronics will live longer if you don’t turn them on and off every day.
You can set the receiver to automatically switch to standby mode when you are not operating the receiver or when there are no signals coming into the receiver. This operation is only available from the front panel display of the receiver.
Unplug your receiver
Unplug your receiver’s power cord, wait 15 seconds, and plug it back in. Press the power button on the front of your receiver. Wait for your receiver to restart.
Try turning off the receiver’s CEC control function if it is on. 2. Some receivers will switch to another audio connection if audio is lost in the HDMI. Make sure you’ve set the HDMI input correctly in the input setup menu, and try that too if you can turn off auto-sense.
HDMI Control allows you to control external devices via HDMI. If you connect a TV that supports HDMI control to the device with an HDMI cable, you can control the device (e.g. power and volume) with the TV remote control.
One of the biggest factors in AV receivers overheating is lack of airflow. It is possible to place your gear in regular furniture, but it will require some work on your part. Receivers need space all around (especially at the top). Just look at your receiver.
But everything I watch (movies/tv) needs to turn up the volume on the receiver. It reads db, and just for watching TV it needs to be around -20db or better for comfortable listening. To get an impression of a movie, the volume needs to be closer to 0 dB.
How to fix the receiver shutting down when you turn up the volume. New receivers will automatically shut down because they may find a short somewhere. This short can be internal (within the device) or external (one of the speakers or speaker wires).
