Yamaha's RX-V1800 home-theatre receiver connects to your home audio system, iPod, television, VCR, DVD or Blu-ray player to provide surround sound while listening to music on phonograph records, tapes and CDs, or while watching movies and TV shows. It has an AM/FM tuner and features Dolby and THX processing. If the receiver is having a problem, or if its settings no longer serve your needs, you can reset it to the factory default settings.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the "Master On/Off" button on the receiver's front panel to turn it off.

  2. 2

    Press the "Straight/Effect" button and hold it down.

  3. 3

    Press the "Master On/Off" button while holding the "Straight/Effect" button. The "Advanced Menu" will appear on the panel's display. Release the buttons.

  4. 4

    Rotate the "Program Selector" knob to the right until you see "Initialize Cancel" on the display.

  5. 5

    Press the "Straight/Effect" button repeatedly until "Initialize All" appears on the display.

  6. 6

    Press the "Master On/Off" button to turn the power off.

  7. 7

    Press the "Master On/Off" button to turn the power back on. The receiver is now reset to its factory default settings.
