I have a Yamaha HTR5940 receiver that has a strange issue.

It seems to shut down randomly every 1 or 2 days regardless of volume levels. I cannot replicate this behavior on demand as cranking the volume up doesn't cause shutdown.

It is running 2 sets of speakers concurrently one 6.1 on stereo (both A and B).

The timer function isn't on.

If there was a short wouldn't turning up the volume immediately trigger shutdown?

I will try disconnecting the power to reset the unit.

Thanks for the advice ........ the problem seems to have gone away for now.

Another possibility may be that something in the room is emitting random IR energy that is triggering the remote control receiver to shut down. I do have flickering LED candles in the same room. Seems unlikely though ...

If it happens again I will follow both your advice although I would rather not disconnect or rip the unit apart.

Sad if it dies ...... it is a really good unit.
