“I have a little used Yamaha RX-V870. I am getting output on only one of the two rear channel speakers.” According to this symptom, chance of your av amp to get defected is very low. Maybe wrong speakers settings. Read instruction manual first.

If settings is correct, check front L/R relay and surround L/R/Back relay also .(bad contact due to oxidation)Exchange the good one(rear) with those suspected to see if sound come out from speakers. Download RXV870 service manual to locate them.

(a)pointing the phone camera to the remote diode.
(b)don’t take any photo.

You need something like this:

Digital to Analogue 5.1 converter:

I have never used one of these before, but i have worked in the audio industry and if this device works as advertised it will suit your needs.

To initialize and reboot the unit, hold down the Main Zone power button for more than 10 seconds. Hopefully this will allow you to turn on the unit.

Download yamaha RXV363 service manual see P.81.
Download STK330-330 PDF to see equivalent schematic. Follow steps written on photo to find out which IC is bad.
If you haven't turned on your amp more than 3 times under protection mode, your amp will be back to normal after
replacing the faulty IC.

Hi there. More than likely the power output stage has a problem (possible if the amp was on at the time of the surge). It would be best to have a proper component tester to check the stage components but component testers are expensive. But the good thing is that you have an other working amp. Since you don't have the knowledge or proper equipment I would suggest to open up both amps and compare the readings of the same points of each amp. A shorted or cut-off power semiconductor would show even on a multi-tester set at the diode scale. Check also ALL the fuses and fuse resistors related to the output stage (resistors under 1? (brown black black 1? or gold brown black 0.1?) .
