Yamaha RX-V1700 is not responding to remote control anymore


Active Member
It used to work fine without any problems, but now all of a sudden the receiver does not react/respond to the remote control anymore. This sucks bigtime cause i cannot go into the menu or anything else. The only thing i did today was reset the receiver, so all its settings would be back to default. The receiver however still did respond to the remote control, but now all of a sudden it refuses. Nothing.

The remote is not broken,cause as soon i press a button i can see the little red light and i also see things on the little display. I Googled this problem, but didn't find anything. I also checked the manual about remote control codes , but that also did not help one bit. This sounds like such a small thing, but without the functions of the remote i can't do crap.

Try replacing the batteries. They may be flat.

But they are brand new. I bought a package full of new ones today. And the remote itself works too. I guess this receiver needs some kind of code to be working with the remote control again or something. Nonetheless i did try other batteries but nothing changed. I have absolutely no idea what is going on here. but it sucks damn much.

I've decided to update this thread, cause the problem still hasn't been fixed. I haven't been using the receiver ever since and have a new system here. I want to sell this one, but i can't do that without the remote working. I've checked the manual some more, but i honestly don't understand what i am supposed to do. It talks about special codes, but i can only let the remote learn DVD, CD, Tuner etc...codes, no idea how to use the code so the receiver itself responds to it.

Anyone have any idea or am i going to have to bring this receiver to a store for them to check it out?

can anyone help at all please?

Same experience here with my RX-V1700. I tried to set the two remote ID amp code but it is still not working. Very disappointing.
