Question about Pioneer VSX-915 Receiver

Open Question

Pioneer VSX 916

Hi,

after 2 years using this receiver, it started to freak me out. The problem is, several minutes after I turn it on, the left speaker output starts disconnecting. One time there is sound on the speaker, some time there is not. I've check the speakers, there are not the problem.

Some solution? Or I need to take it to service. :)

Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: Pioneer VSX-D608 Optical connection

Do you have the original remote for the receiver? You need the remote to set up the optical settings according to the manual there is a fair bit of things to do to set it up reply if you do have the remote then I will post up word for word on how to change the settings but without the remote you basically cant do much with it sorry

hope this helps

If you have just one pair of speakers hooked up and have both A & B speakers selected you won't get ANY sound out of unit, so check that?

SOURCE: Pioneer VSX 818V No Sound

First thing to check is the Speaker Select Switch. It will say, "A" "AB" or "Both" it will be displayed on the LCD screen as well. Second if that's ok, Check the "Direct" switch. If it's on, turn it off. Generally if it's on, you will see a blue light if it's on (most receiver's)

If you still have No audio, hook up your DVD to the "Direct" input and turn "Direct" on. If you have audio then. The DSP chip is probably bad and you should take it to a shop and have them bench it first to confirm. Hope this helps

SOURCE: pioneer receiver vsx-d510 sub not working

Rear Surrounds are not supported on this unit, they would be the 6th and 7th channels in a 7.1 rig. I think you mean Surrounds (channels 4 and 5 in a 5.1 rig).

Lets ponder: How is there any relationship between Surrounds and your separately-amplified Subwoofer? I don't see it, unless you inadvertently chose OFF for the Sub definition when you were in the Speaker selection menus adding the Surrounds. Look again.

if you have an EQ hooked up it will not work correctly with dolby digital playback and will dammage the reciever.
sorry, just got here , but I have the same unit and have had it for 5+ years and it still works great ! but if you want any device to last unplug it when you are not going to use it for a while.
