You can reset your AVR to default settings. You'll have to reconfigure everything all over again but the reset may fix your problem.

Page 105-107 of your user manual. If you don't have it you can download here.

DO NOT try to install firmware intended for another model, you could conceivably brick your AVR.

I agree with @afrogt , try a factory reset in the Advanced Setup menu. Sometimes manufacturers will drop older models from support in their apps (Samsung did this to my TV 2-3 years after I bought it!), but according to Yamaha's page for the AV Controller app the 673 is still supported.

I've done the factory reset and there is no change. I can no longer connect my iPhone to the receiver via 1/8" stereo to RCA's using AV5 as input. I get no sound. I don't get any sound on AM/FM receiver either. Is my unit kaput?

Sure seems like it.

Yamaha RX-V673 won’t show HDMI in Zone 2

I used to be able to play Zone 1 HDMI (TV) audio in Zone 2. Zone 2 in Yamaha AV Controller app used to have HDMI options displayed and now it doesn’t. The RX-V673 doesn’t have “Party Mode”. I no longer have contact info of person who set it up. Zone 2 works fine with non-HDMI inputs so Zone speakers are working. Thanks

If I am reading this correctly, that receiver will not allow hdmi (digital source) playback in zone 2. Only analog sources.

The lowest level receivers that have that feature are the denon x3400/3500 and onkyo rz630/730/830.

Begginer help YAMAHA RX-V673 and JBL E60 or E80

Hello guys,

English is not my native language so i apologize in advance for misspelling mistakes.

I got Yamaha RX-V673 EU model from my uncle for free but without speakers. I’m new in this hobby so i’dont know alot about this hobby and sound,ohm,W specifications (what to look for).
I’m interested in buying JBL Northridge E60 or E80 i can get them for a really decent price. In the future i would like to buy Jbl Subwoofer also. I would use the speakers for listening to music Rap/Hiphop and watching movies thru HDMI ARC.
So are this speakers good for my receiver or are they to powerful for the receivet. I don’t want to screw my receiver in a day or less...

Thanks for your help,

Regards from Slovenia EU.

There's no such thing as "speakers are too powerful for the receiver." If they are 8 ohm speakers, and relatively efficient, the receiver will drive them. Period.

Read more on these forums, and read up on the specifications for the speakers you want, and you will start to learn.

Is there a shortcut for adjusting the subwoofer level? It can't be that I need to go into the speaker setup and adjust the level.
