re: RX-V1

OK, got Center channel working now, but one of my rear surround speakers is getting no signal from the amp.

I suppose this is related to the known design flaw. I entered the diag mode as detailed below but that trick did not work. Though, it did reset all my DSP parameters back to the original factory settings.

How much usually is it to have a rear surround channel fixed by a repair service?

Also, anyone know how to make the rear sound speakers louder in comparison to the MAINs?

re: RX-V1

No Center Channel.

I'm also having the design-flaw one side channel drop-out issue as well.

1) No center Channel issue. I went through the entire internal parameter settings to double check to see if I had it turned off somewhere internally within the unit itself (software), but no go.

I checked to see if the rear center channel worked and it did.

Also, went into factory-reset mode and did ALL-Channels on (white noise test) - still the center chn was dead.

Anyone else have any other ideas?

2) side channel issue seems to be on my left rear surround chn. The signal is super weak. Sometimes not at all. I tried jumper cable in-btwn the mains but really didn't work.

is this issue repairable at a reasonable price?

re: RX-V1

If you are having an issue with no sound coming from only one speaker, typically the right channel has sound but not the left; then I found out from Yahama's tech support that a factory reset will do the job. To perform a factory reset you must:

1) Turn off the receiver. Wait 5 seconds.
2) Press and Hold the "program" button with the arrow pointing to the right >. At the same time, hold "effect". While holding those two buttons, press and hold the "standby/on" (power) button for 3 seconds.
3) After 3 seconds a menu will appear. Use "preset/tuning" to navigate the menu. Go to option 10. Then with the "program button" navigate to the option called "reserved".
4) Turn the receiver off and wait 5 seconds.
5) Problem should be fixed.

re: RX-V1

I just tried that and nothing happened and I didn't get that menu you spoke of. What am I doing wrong?
Is there any other method to factory reset?
I am getting no sound at all using main speaker outlets

re: RX-V1

The speaker selection button has become finicky on my RX-V1. I find that I sometimes must click the speakers A (or Speakers B, if that is what you are connected to) off and on a number of times before the switch will actually make contact and turn the speakers on. Also be sure nothing is plugged into the headphones jack as that disables the speaker outputs.

re: RX-V1

where is the audio ( white and red ) out put of this RX-V1, eg when I play some music through CD channel I can't find the out put when I try to record this music while I Play ,Also if I change the input to LD the music came out but when I plug the audio cable to the LD out , there is no sound at all

re: RX-V1

Be sure to check and adjust the "source" dial inside the front cover of your RX-V1, as that dial determines where the audio to be recorded or sent to zone 2 is taken from.
