Recent issue with my Yamaha RX-V371 receiver. From the remote control, when I press the volume up button once, the volume turns all the way up by itself to the highest volume level (as if I was holding the button down). The same goes for if I am turning the volume down, it goes all the way down. Any suggestions?
If two different remotes just started doing the same thing, then something is broken in your receiver or there is a new source of IR interference in the room, perhaps a new tv, a different backlight setting or new lighting. The problem isn't the remotes, nor is there any receiver setting you can change.
Hmmm... don't think so. It would have to output light. A sensor shouldn't be a problem.
Try this. Get a piece of masking tape (painter's tape) and cover the IR sensor on the receiver. That cuts the amount of light without blocking it entirely, usually doing a good job of filtering out just IR noise.
