My trusty old Yamaha RXV2095 receiver is not powering up anymore.

Few days ago I noticed that when I push the power button on the remote

it makes the clicking noise but the power doesn't come on. After few attempts it

turned on and stayed on for the rest of the evening. This behavior I noticed

for few nights and today, it no longer powers up. Still makes the clicking noise

but the power lights do not come up even after many attempts.


Any idea what could be the cause of this ? How to fix ?

Sounds potentially bad. If it briefly powered up and then down, it would likely be going into protection mode. But if nothing at all happens, it could be sick


Disconnect everything from it, leave it unplugged overnight, plug it back in, and see if it will power up then. If not, you might need to consider a new unit or service.

Actually after my post I went back and tried to turn on the power again. After about

10 mins of clicking sound it finally powerd up. The unit didn't turn itself off after

powering up and this makes me feel the unit's main power amp is OK.

Now I'm afraid to turn this thing off tonight and going to leave it ON.

(don't want to live without this for the weekend)


I hope these additional details will help someone clarify what might be going on

with my unit. With every passing day it appears to need more and more clicking

the power switch to get it going..

Sounds like one of those intemittent electrical problems. Bad relay or something of the sort.
