You're assuming it needs repair. That may not be the case.

kaosx77,

Try doing a factory reset on your receiver: http://faq.yamaha.com/us/en/article/...k_u/10297/7581

Remember, that'll erase any preferences saved on your receiver (named inputs, calibration, yada yada yada).

Yippee-ki-yay...

Hi All

I have been using a V773 for several years now and have been loving it. Unfortunately a week ago, my speakers started emitting crackling noises and occasionally the audio would go away and come back randomly. Looking at the unit's display, all the speaker channels were disappearing and coming back again.

There was a storm a few weeks ago so I don't know if there was a surge that broke a capacitor or something like that. I do have a surge protection power board so I don't know if it was related to the storm.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Unplug it for a while. Do a factory reset. Sounds damaged.

Hey guys,

How much do you guys think I could fetch with a 773WABL that's been sent to me from an authorized service center?
No *major* issue, but they checked the whole shebang anyway...

It's like new, so I'm not sure if I should sell it or keep it depending on what I could sell it for.

Thanks

Keep it. Unless you run into an idiot you won't get nearly enough to replace it. Refurbished 777s are selling pretty cheap right now and 775s for even less.

Dead Unit?

I have an issue I'm hoping for some guidance on. I used the unit this morning no problem. This afternoon it powers on, but no audio or video. Front display on the unit appears normal. It also doesn't connect to the network. Hard wired into a switch and I don't even get a link light. Also notice that there is a significant delay (5s) between pressing power to turn it off and hearing the relay click. Never noticed this before.

I have done the internal breaker reset (hold power for 10s) and a factory reset (hold straight, press power, init-all). Also tried opening the circuit protection (Main Zone + Info + Tone Control). No change. Any ideas or am I screwed?? Thanks in advance.

^^ Yikes, that doesn't sound good

Try getting ahold of Yamaha's Customer Service. I called them a while back and they were VERY helpful! And if there's nothing you can do, they'll suggest a repair center.

Good luck!

Yippee-ki-yay...
