Yamaha audio receiver will not turn on. It was fine last night while I was watching a DVD. Today I tried to turn on the news and nothing works. TV goes on, Tivo is on, but the Yamaha does not go on. Any advice? We have tried power cycling it.

I think the Yamaha is 10-15 years old.

Does it have a fuse? Also, take a look at the power cord. Otherwise, I'd say you need a new receiver. It's probably not worth trying to get it fixed.

No fuse... hubby suggested the same thing. We have looked at the cord.

I suggested to go with a sound bar because I would like something simple. He is deaf and does watch not TV other than shows with closed captioning.

If all you're using the receiver for is to power speakers for the TV, then yes, a sound bar would work. You could also get on Craigslist and buy a used receiver for $50 or less. They usually last a long long time.

I have two Yamaha receivers. You will find some great deals on refurbs. I bought a refurb and a used one on ebay and they've been working great for years. They are manufacturer refurbished so they are still good quality with a warranty.

We bought a Sony sound bar and put the Yamaha in the garage. The damn thing weighs more than my son. I am perfectly happy with this arrangement.

legally it has to have a fuse, its on the inside.a popped fuse could mean the fuse itself has failed ,just replace it, or you have a serious short, shorted output transistor is a very common problem.any electronic repair shop can fix it.
