Yesterday morning I connected a new pair of front speakers to it (JBL Arena 130). I temporarily disabled the subwoofer because I wanted to hear their response in full range mode. I started playing a bass heavy track ("Bass, I Love You"), took the volume up to -10dB (the scale goes up to +16 dB), and the receiver immediately shut down. It was not hot at all when it happened. I just barely started playing. It will not turn back on. I disconnected power for half hour and disconnected all speakers. Still no go. The self-diagnostic mode (TONE CONTROL + INFO + Power) will not turn on either. I just hear a single click, and then nothing. Nothing on the display either. I took off the cover - I don't see any burned components and nothing smells burnt. I saw one small fuse near the power cable entrance into the case, but that fuse is still intact. What else can I try? I am not an electronics components expert. I have a DMM. It's an old(er) Yamaha RX-V471. Sending it into Yamaha for repair doesn't make financial sense. I just wanted to see if it's something simple that could revive it, before I trash it. While the speakers are new, I ran them with another smaller receiver/amp the night before without any issues, so I'm not blaming the speakers, unless they're unusually difficult to drive, but being rated at 8 Ohm nominal impedance, they shouldn't be. Thanks!
