    Recent owner of a very nice Yamaha R-2000. Unlimited clean power. Nice. One issue. Ugly hum from phono section. Even without a table hooked up. Before I go digging. Any ideas?

    Likely bad solder joint I'd bet. If you wiggle the connectors does it go away or change?

    If yes ---power source for the phono section ie dried out cap or broken solder connection in the power supply or to the phono circuit board.
    If no --- broken ground solder connection or a bad cap as well, for that channel.

    How loud is the noise ? Is it a hum or static type noise ?

    Yes. But I just noticed that the hum doesn't appear until receiver warms up. A bad cap does sound appropriate

    If all else fails, try this.

    Im sure a easy fix is in store. If all else fails a phono pre amp into aux. works. I was skeptical that a receiver boasting 150 WPC and not weighing 80 pounds. I stand corrected. Yamaha done good on this one. lots and lots and even more clean power. I like it

    Do you know your way around a schematic ? A couple things need to be checked.

    I do. I havnt had time to open her up yet. Too many on going projects. The reason I asked originally was to see if this may have been a chronic issue with the R-2000

    I was just going to say. Check your +12 volt supply feeding the auto phono processor IC402 pin 14 when the machine is acting up.

    That I will. The job is always easier accepting advice from someone who has already been there. Thank you

    That one 12v power source would mess up both channels.

    Any electrolytics connected to it are suspects as well.

    MC headamp and Phono Equalizer opamps

    + and - 16vcc going to opamps IC110. And the + and - 27vcc going to IC111 & 112.

    The R-1000 and R-2000 were so close to greatness. If only Yamaha had implemented a fully synthesized digital tuner that was as reliable and effective as say the Concept 12.0D, it would have been a winner. Hope you get your phono amp sorted.
