Mounting the unit on a wall
How to mount the unit on the wall
Cautions
• When mounting the unit on a wall, all installation work must be
performed by a qualified contractor or dealer. The customer must
never attempt to perform this installation work. Improper or
inadequate installation could cause the unit to fall, resulting in
personal injury.
• To avoid falling the unit, attach the unit to a dry wall.
• Make sure you use commercially available screws that can
support the weight of the installation (specified in Step 2 on the
right). Using clamps other than specified screws, such as short
screws, nails, and two-sided tape, may cause the unit to fall.
• Fix the cables in place where they will not become loose. If your
foot or hand accidentally gets caught on a loose cable, the unit
may fall.
• Do not lean on the unit or apply excessive force to the top of the
unit. Doing so may cause the unit to fall.
• Check that the unit is fixed securely after the installation. Yamaha
will bear no responsibility for any accidents caused by improper
installations.
Mount the unit on the wall so that the keys face
upwards.

operated when the
TV’s remote control
is pointed toward the
unit’s remote control
sensor.
Cause
The unit is out of the operating
range.
Use the remote control within the
operating range (p.3).
The batteries are weak.
Replace with new batteries (p.3).
The remote control sensor of the
unit is exposed to direct sunlight
or strong lighting.
Adjust the lighting angle, or
reposition the unit.
The unit and TV are too far apart
(or too close), preventing proper
operation of the unit's TV remote
repeater function.
Position the unit so that it is more
than 5 cm (2 in) away from the TV
(p.8).
There are obstacles between the
unit and the TV (cables, etc.),
preventing proper operation of the
unit's TV remote repeater
function.
Remove obstacles between the
unit and the TV.

function cannot be used.
Reposition the unit so that it does
not obstruct the remote control
sensor on the TV, and point the
TV’s remote control at the remote
control sensor on the TV to
control the TV.
Signals transmitted from the TV’s
remote control and the unit's TV
remote repeater interfere with
each other, making it difficult for
the TV to receive signals.
The unit does not
learn TV remote
control commands.
Remedy
The TV’s remote control key was
not held down long enough.
Hold down the key for at least 1
second and release it for at least
1 second. Perform this operation
twice. If the unit fails to learn
functions, perform this operation
three times (p.27).
The TV’s remote control does not
use infrared signals. (Some
remote controls may not function
even if it uses infrared signals.)

be used to teach the unit TV
remote control commands. Use
the unit’s remote control to
operate the unit.
The TV’s remote control is not
pointed at the unit’s remote
control sensor.
Point the TV’s remote control at
the unit’s remote control sensor
(p.27).
Problem
The unit does not
learn TV remote
control commands.
Cause
Remedy
The batteries of the TV’s remote
control are weak.
Replace with new batteries.
The remote control sensor of the
unit is exposed to direct sunlight
or strong lighting.
Adjust the lighting angle, or
reposition the unit.
The transmission of the remote
control signal was disturbed by
the TV screen light.
Turn off the TV (p.26).
The remote control for the cable
or satellite set-top box is used for
learning.
Use the TV’s remote control for
learning, then use the remote
control for the set-top box to
operate the unit.
Sound comes from
the TV when the
unit’s volume is
increased using the
TV’s remote control
(when the unit has
been taught TV
remote control
commands).
Audio output is enabled on the
TV.
Change the TV setting to disable
the TV speaker output. If a setting
to disable the speaker output is
not available on your TV, try the
following methods.
- Connect headphones to the
headphones jack on the TV.

When the power key
on the TV’s remote
control is pressed,
power status for the
unit and the TV is
reversed (e.g., when
the unit is turned on,
the TV turns off)
(when the unit has
been taught TV
remote control
commands).
The power of the TV was on when
you performed the learning
operation.
Press the power button on the TV
itself to turn on the TV, and press
the
key on the unit to turn on
the unit. Then, press the power

Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a technology for wireless communication employing the
2.4 GHz frequency band, which can be used without a license.
Handling Bluetooth communications
• The 2.4 GHz band used by Bluetooth compatible devices is a radio
band shared by many types of equipment. While Bluetooth
compatible devices use a technology minimizing the influence of
other components using the same radio band, such influence may
reduce the speed or distance of communications and in some cases
interrupt communications.
• The speed of signal transfer and the distance at which
communications is possible differs according to the distance
between the communicating devices, the presence of obstacles,
radio wave conditions and type of equipment.
• Yamaha does not guarantee all wireless connections between this
unit and devices compatible with Bluetooth function.
