yamaha receiver htr 5790 fails to turn on

cotonOctober 22, 2005

Hi guys Im newby in these places. Last weekwnd I lived mi worst nightmare: my Y HTR 5790, couldnt startup, in fact it does but after 15 seconds it turns off. I live in Argentina and here I have to use a transformer 220-110 volts. I ve been using this transf before with no problem and I tryed with another one and it kept on doing the same.

the manual says something about disconecting the power cord and wait 30 seconds... Ivebeen waiting for a whole week ...and nothing :(

did anyone past for something similar?

any idea, phone number, gun to killmyself, ...?

I experienced the same problem. I am using the Yamaha HTR-5790 with a 110v/220v transformer with no problems for about 2 years. Just recently the receiver started to turn itself off automatically after staying on for about 15-20 seconds.

The user manual says the unit could be exposed to a strong electric shock or static electricity. The manual suggest to unplug all power chords, wait for 30 seconds, and then plug everything back in. However, this did not work. I tried another transformer and that did not help either.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
