Yamaha RX-V757 not working

Recommended Posts

I have a Yamaha AV receiver RX-V757 and it will not power up. The main display is blank and there is no sound of relay engaging or any sound of life at all.

 

So far I have:

 

- disconnected all cables except main AC cable

- measured 247V on the input board where the AC input cable is attached

- taken fuse F1 off fuse holder and checked it with a multimeter and is ok

- measured voltage at the AC outlet and there is no power at all

 

Any suggestions?

 

I couldn't find a diagram online. I'm pretty confident in trying DIY repair if I find out what to do.

 

I've been quoted $800 :confused: for a repair at the hi-fi shop where I bought it, when a new comparable unit would cost $1000. 

 

They obviously are trying to sell me a new unit.  :mad:

 

Does anyone know any repairer that can be trusted in Melbourne?

I know it's not the exact same model, but it is so visually similar that i wonder if they share the same boards and the same problem:

It looks the same as my unit, I'll definitely try to replace the cap. Fun video too!  :)

Thank you

TMM, thanks!

 

I had no power to my Yamaha RX-V757, exactly the same as the symptoms Amadeus was having here, on Saturday night. So no big sound for home movie night :-(

Through the power of google and this forum, I found your video later that night. A trip to Jaycar Electronics for a $0.55 630V 22nF capacitor, and 10 minutes with a soldering iron and a screwdriver later, and come Sunday lunch the receiver was back in business.

I tested it out with a couple of CDs, and then Star Wars Ep 2 cranked up for the kids (OK, and for me) - good as new! Thanks again.

Thanks for posting all this guys, had the same problem here in spain, cap measured 2267pf instead of 22nf.

We were away for the weekend, i think i left the amp on, many thunderstorms later, the receiver was u/s on our return.

      This magnificent Sansui receiver came from the ANU school of music recording studio, where it was used to drive altec monitors.(note the sticker from Canberra institute of the arts- one of many names covering the school of music over the years) It works fine- as a pro use studio amp it was very well maintained.
      One curious feature is that the tuner is AM and Short Wave (MW ).
      They are photos of the actual receiver below.
       
      I am in Canberra and can post anywhere. 
      Postage should be between $25- $45 depending on distance
      OneBay these go for about $280 so this is a steal
