I am not surprised!
You are trying to connect a very modern TV to a receiver that is very old.
The modern TV has no RCA audio OUT connections. Nor does it have a coaxil OUT socket.
The RCA sockets on the back of the TV are all "IN" connections. The audio out is an optical and the old receiver doesn't have an IN for it!
You can get an HDMI to RCA lead. This would provided the sound of the TV.
However personally I would sell the old receiver on E-Bay and buy yourself a more modern one with HDMI connections and a Dolby sound system to match.
If you can't afford a new one there are plenty of good secondhand ones on E-Bay.

First check all you speaker wiring and connections for short circuits and bad connections. Also check the speakers are working correctly.
If that doesn't correct the problem, then it's probable that an internal fault has developed in the main amp section. Till that is fixed then the amp will continue to shut down.

I think it's more likely to be a speaker settings issue. Channels are rarely individual fused these days. Generally anything strong enough to take the fuse out would kill the power to the whole unit. Speakers also tend to have protection circuits, but again these will nearly always stop all channels workings.
Most of the these multi channels systems have the ability to have speakers switched on or off, as well as adjusting the levels for them. If you read through the user manual you should find a way of activating the missing channels.
If you have lost the user manual, try looking on the Yamaha website. They should have a free PDF of it.

Most newer receivers have a dedicated subwoofer output with line voltage. If yours doesn't, you will need a subwoofer with a proper internal crossover, or it could potentially blow its input circuit. Subwoofers are normally powered internally, and need low level input to work properly. You should never hook up a subwoofer to regular speaker outputs, unless they are designed to take the signal, and then separate the signal to subwoofer frequency output.

I would try cleaning it first. There is probably polycarbonate dust inside the player and it is built up on the CD present sensor.

It could be capacitor problem. These are supposed to stop voltages that would cause "pops". They are what are called electrolytic capacitors. Sometimes you can visually see there's something wrong with them, because they bulge on top or have stuff coming out of them!

Don’t power it up without speaker wires, with no homage load you can ruin the amplifiers. Connect everything up again. Make sure all wires are connect and “correctly”. Positive to positive and negative to negative. This sounds like what the receiver was trying to tell you. They have to be connected like that. Otherwise the sound will be really funky

Have you tried opening the cover, inspecting it for dust, using compressed air to clean it out? Make sure you unplug the power cord first. Dust can cause all sorts if mayhem without you realizing it.

The fan is to cool specific components by keeping air flowing over them. If cleaning the dust out doesn't fix the audio output problem, I would look at the output jack to ensure no wires were faulty. If that appears to be good, switch out the audio cable to verify the output is good/bad.

If all of that still doesn't fix the problem then you likehave an internal electrical component problem. If you cannot repair it yourself then you can try someplace like Best Buy Geek squad to see if they are able to correctly repair the problem.

Protection mode keeps the receiver from frying the power supply when a power transistor fails. You cannot reset it. You have to replace the failed power transistors.
