The usual gauges range from 18 to 16 with one limiting factor being the ability of the receiver and speaker terminals to handle larger gauge wire

SOURCE: Yamaha R-V905 constantly turns itself off

Two things I think are happening. It is overheating and it has suffered some sort of damage to a component inside. Try to make sure there is ventilation on all sides. Can you remember a time where you did not have adequate ventilation for this device? If so maybe that is what caused the part inside to fail.

Hope this helps

Thanks for reading!

SOURCE: My yamaha receiver shuts down when I turn it up.

If you have bare wire going into the receiver's output terminals, make sure a strand or two of wire is not touching the other terminal. That can short out the outputs, especially when you turn up the volume, which increases the voltage present at those terminals. That would cause the receiver to shut down as a saftey precaution.

Hey, yeah that can be frustrating.

When you turn it up do you hear the relay or a clicking sound, then you turn it on and it comes back below the +2db?

Try unplugging All the speaker wires from the unit. Turn on the unit and listen for the click.
after the click, turn it up past the 2+ db mark and see if you hear it click or shut down. If it did not click off, then suspect a shorted crossover on one of your speakers.
2nd test is to plug in One speaker, and test it at high volume, it will not harm it. If it shuts off disconnect that speaker and try another. Only one at a time.
If it works at high volume, you need to isolate one of your speakers and i bet it has a shorted crossover that has been cooked. P.S. If one is bad, suspect they will fail at a later date.
If they all fail, use a friends speaker and try it before sending it to a repair shop.

P.S. i found one on ebay i think you can get for under $100 bucks in the box.

SOURCE: HTR-5740 Subwoofer Hooking Up Issue

You can use a hi-level to low-level adapter. Just remember, the Yamaha does not send power (wattage) to the sub, just signal. You need to use a subwoofer that has an amplifier either externally or built in.

I have the same issue. I took the speaker apart and tested with a meter and both the mid and tweater were wide open, in short blow out. Not sure what caused this but the speaker needs to be replaced.

No left speaker a output, or distorted output. Good right a, right b and left b.


That would have been a better first post.

I think you're right. Wiggle the speaker A left connection while listening at a medium volume level. You may reveal the cause.

We have a Yamaha RX -V565 and after listening to music the entire system shuts down. We turn it back on and it works for a while? We installed new speakers with new 16 gauge speaker wire. Anybody know...


chances are youve got a short at the rear of the receiver. look for frayed speaker wires touching the chassis of the stereo. use a flashlight. it only takes one tiny hair of a wire to short it out

Will not turn on.


It has an internal problem. Just received an RX-V2600 back from service for the same issue. It took a voltage drop then a spike. It takes out 5 caps and a few other parts. The repair will run roughly 250-275 depending on who does the service. Hope this helps
