Yamaha Rec'r Turns Off From Volume

brucegzFebruary 23, 2007

Hi all,

I have a Yamaha surround sound receiver, about 10 years old, that has taken to shutting itself down anytime the volume on a movie is above 1/3 level. It only seems to do this in DVD/movie modes not just music stereo listening. It runs into the typical home theater set-up with 3 front, a powered sub and a single rear. The 2nd rear speaker is currently disconnected. Could that have anything to with my problem? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

How is the back speaker connected? Did you just leave the leads to the second back speaker disconnected or did you wire anything together?

I spoke with the place I bought it years ago and the tech mentioned the same thing. I'm going to now check all the wires for any grounding. I think the end wire of the non-connected speaker might still be connected to the stereo in which case it could easily be grounding itself. I'll write back with what I find. Thanks for the suggestion.
