new RX A3020 unit purchased in april 2013, installed in may and has been working fine configured as 9.2 main zone, 2 chanlen remote on zone 3 - Now the unit will not power up. checked 120 volt is present at monster surege protector outlet unit is plugged into. Tried to hold down main power buttong for 10 seconds, no results - no lights come on at all, nothing blinks, etc - have tried all zone power up commands from remote as well.
yamaha sevice manual says something about a saftey if power is dropped 3 consecutive times, to call for service -anyone know how to reset this,if it is an easy fix or do I have to lug the unit over 50 miles to my nearest factory authorised repair center and get in the backlog rotaion of theris?
Thanks for any help given!
As a follow up, sent yamaha an email, no response -
So Decided to open up the case and see if there was a fuse or reset button - there is a power supply board that has a fuse on it way down in the bottom corner a mini fuse, you would have to pull the board out by removing 2 screws and disconnecting several connectors. i decided to try a few things, and just disconnected the main connectotthat goes from the power board to the processor board and the one that goes to the main board, basicaly the board on the very top and the board on the very bottom- there are a couple of connectors on the power board itself, but i left those alone. i disconnected the 2 boards, waited a bit and connected them back up. I then plugged the main power cord back in, hit the main power button and.................
no 50 mile trip.
Hope this helps someon in the future
