    I recently bought a used Yamaha RX-V2090 receiver for the bedroom.

    I am having trouble getting any sound from it... the sound that comes out is very faint. I can hear sound if I put my ears next to the speakers.

    When the seller demoed it it worked perfect but he had it connected through his TV. He would control the volume thru his TV. I would guess this has something to do with the problem I'm having.

    I've tried the manual but no luck. THere's no reset button that I can find.

    It's not a/b speakers, I've checked it and it's conntected on a. I did push b and nothing happened.

    I only have a pair of mains connected to the receiver.

    I was going to say check the mute but i believe "mute" flashes on the screen when engaged. I will continue to think about your problem. Seems like ive had this problem in the past. ill try to remember.

    I have the RX-V2092, check to make sure the jumpers in the back which connect the pre-amp to the main are in (or even there). They are just a pair of thick, bent wire.

    Carl,

    Make sure the tape monitor is not engaged. If the tape monitor LED is on, push the button and then you should get some sound.

    jeff,

    the jumpers were connected, it worked fine at the sellers house.

    Wayne,

    Good idea I will check the tape monitor tonight and report back.

    thanks

    I tried the tape monitor, it didn't do a thing. I'm stumped.

    Any other ideas.

    Fm tuner works but it's very faint just like the dvd player. I'm just playing a cd thru the dvd player.

    I just checked the manual.

    I think I know what the problem is now.

    It is the pre amp jumpers as mentioned by jeff

    Maybe they came lose when I packed it.

    Anyway I will try to locate some jumpers and let you guys know.

    Thanks guys

    Call 1-800-4-YAMAHA and order some new ones.

    In the meantime, a set of RCA cables patched across the jacks will get you up and running.

    Wayne,

    Patch cables worked like a champ.

    This receiver sounds excellent.

    Thanks everybody
