Yamaha RX-V1900 video output not working ? - perth repair?

Recommended Posts

I have a Yamaha RX-V1900 in my movie room that recently seems to have stopped putting video via hdmi ( I connected my nvidia shield direct to the JVC x3 projector and it works , but not when via the amp. 
 

I have two long hdmi cables run to my projector, and one isn’t working , but the spare cable does ( when going direct to the projector ) so I looks like video output from amp, plus one hdmi cable aren’t working.

 

any suggestions for a receiver repairer in perth?

 

if I was to update to a newer receiver any suggestions ? I have a Sony DN 1080 in the tv room. Both rooms have 5.1 setup

i contacted a local repairer but he thought it would be about $300-400 to fix.....

 

i was thinking of trying a hdmi splitter (1 in, two out) so i can run the nvidia shield to the amp, and connect it direct to the projector at the same time.

any suggestions for a good unit to try ?

I'd personally proberly get it fixed if it was only $300-$400. Otherwise you could buy something like that splitter you linked to:

I have no experience withit but, its cheap and it may solve your issue. It certainly reads like it would solve your problem as long as you don't need something that required HDMI 2.0 & HDCP 2.2 which your Yamaha won't do anyway.

Note:
1.This active splitter amplifies and equalizes the input signal in order to perform at maximum spec without signal loss for longer runs. It means that if you are running multiple displays with different resolutions, the splitter will send the lowest "common" resolution to all displays.
2.If Your HDMI Source Device (like XBox, PS4) supports 4K, please use a HDMI cable 2.0 to connect 4K HDMI Source Device & HDMI switch & display, since HDMI cable 1.4 (or below HDMI 1.4) isn't enough to support the resolution of 4K (4096*2160).

Hi Larry, another option for you - i have an RX-V3800 you can have for $375 - it was the top of the line model a year before the #900 series came out - all in perfect order.  Let me know if you are interested!

There was one on Grays on-line which listed for $369 in 2019.  Spend to $300-400 to fix it does not make sense!

 

For OP: If you are not after the latest and greatest features, then a second hand high end model like what ScottR proposed is a better way to go.  But if you want new, go with what you know i.e. Yamaha and aim for at least a mid range model which should have better power. Often, there are bargains when new models come out and you still have the advantage of buying with full warranty.

Hi guys, thanks for the information and suggestions.

i have ordered a simple hdmi splitter, no point going too expensive or the splitter costs more than the amp.

 

Scottr, thanks for the offer, I will have a think about it, possibly wanted a bit newer.

 

downstairs I just run an nvidia shield to the projector, I also have a Sony DVP S700 DVD player, but I haven’t used it for a long time. So I just need an easy to use setup for the family. I’ve had a console also, but normally the one upstairs on the tv gets used
