I have no experience at all with soundbars so dont know how they are set up. Are you able to connect the sub to something else to check if any woofer movement like a nother system or a phone?

You did this from the manual?

«Connect the monaural input jack on your subwoofer to the SUBWOOFER OUT jack on this unit.
This connection alone does not output sound from the connected subwoofer. To output sound from the connected subwoofer, turn on the power of your subwoofer and then run AUTO SETUP (see page 35) or select SWFR for BASS OUT in SUBWOOFER SET (see page 78).»

Edit: what is the volume knob on the sub set at?

When you play something you know have a lot of bass lightly touch the soft rim around the woofer cone, can you feel any vibrations?
Also what volume do you have the subs volume knob at?

I cant help with the internal bits and measurement of these, but usually the problem is in the setup of source/sub itself. Have you tried with sub volume knob at max with a bluray movie or something you know for sure has a subwoofer track?

Only if its set up right (and working)
Was there no sound when you connect to another source like a phone or another system?

Have you connected a line RCA source to the sub input? If not do it. If no sound the sub is a dud.

Class D sub amps are very high failure items. They are miserable to trouble shoot and not worth the trouble and or expense.

That unit seems particularly miserable, and far too cheap for something that complex with a servo woofer. So you can't use a generic amp. Unless it is under warranty, I fear the recycling center is its appropriate designation.

I see that unit is already discontinued.

Ok can u tell me, how to check yamaha ysp-3000 subwoofer output with multimeter.
You can't do it properly with a multimeter. But if you send an LF signal do it, you should record an AC voltage. However if there is a voltage there, then you will hear sound from the sub. To get the information properly you need a signal generator and o-scope.

It is clear to me that you don't have the knowledge, equipment and experience to trouble shoot this sub.

According to the schematic there are several fuses, the one that might have blown is a 125 V 1.6A fuse, did you check it?

Also look like you can buy parts from Sears, their parts list show only 1 fuse, referred to as fuse 6A, I am not sure that's an error, because the 125 V 1.6A one makes sense to me, and it is right from the schematics.
