Question about Pioneer VSX-D458 Receiver

2 Answers

Speaker connectors not holding

Receiver works great; speaker connectors for speakers A & B seem to have lost their "spring" and will not hold the speaker wires in place. Can these be replaced by a consumer? Can the new binding posts be used?

    I have ordered the replacement parts as that seems to be the best long-term solution. Now I have my fingers crossed that I can replace the part without too much trouble!

I use to have that problem and what i did was to strip more wire. Then fold the bare wire over a few times and try poking it in there. Maybe you can wrap some foil around the wires also. Must be foil with metal on both sides, not a ciggerette pack. You may also try a pencil eraser. Cut it in the shape of a wedge and try and push it into where the springs are this could work similar to the spring.

    Thats trick with putting more on the wire is only a tempoary fix and wont last. once the springs start to give then its downhill from there. yopu could even take a soldering iron and jam it inside the connectop and let solder flow in and insert a wire and solder it in but that as well is not a way I would fix someting! If your gonna fix it fix it righ the first time.

SOURCE: Pioneer VSX-505S Subwoofer Installation

That type of subwoofer is not used with this receiver. This receiver actually outputs no power for a subwoofer, therefore only needs a plain ol' rca signal wire. This is due to the fact that you need a powered sub... one that you plug in to the wall and it has its own built in amp. you simply run an rca from yyour 505s to that sub.

SOURCE: pioneer receiver vsx d814 amp error

The Pioneer VSX-D814 has a couple of Power Hybrid bricks that do all the power amplification. These are the infamous PAC011A. You should have 2 of those in your receiver.

If the amp detects some unusual activities, it may shut down the unit to prevent damage. “Amp Err” usually means some DC in the output.

Disconnect all the speakers and turn on the unit; if it acts normal, reconnect speakers one set at a time very carefully. If the unit still shows the error message you can try to reset it. If the reset works, again carefully reconnect the speakers connections. If the reset does not recover the normal operation of the unit, you may have one of the PAC011A damaged, and the unit will need repair.
The reset can be done by disconnecting the unit power cord for a few minutes, then plug it in and press “FRONT ENTER key + ADVANCED SURROUND key” continuously for 2sec.

Good luck

SOURCE: pioneer vsx-519 no sound from center and surround

Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.

Hi, I bought a house with some Niles HD 6 speakers and need to move them down the wall to install a new cabinet. I can't work out how to remove them from the wall to install them lower?


First remove the wire mesh grill with a curved pin or lever it out with a sharp kitchen knife. Then you will notice four black screws very close the groove into which the grill fits.Using a correct size + screwdriver unscrew all the four screw anticlockwise till you feel the whole speaker panel shake loose. Make sure somebody is holding the outer frame while you are doing it or it might suddenly fall. The are red and black spring clip connectors for the speaker wires. Disconnect them foe removing the speakers completely.

Speakers are cutting out. Checked connections to receiver and they seem good. Wiggled ports on back of receiver and speakers worked, but cut off again as soon as I let go of them.


You might have bad solder connections where the speaker terminals attach to the circuit board inside the case. Mounting screws inside holding circuit boards in place may also have become loose. Often there are ground connections that depend on these screws being tight.

You may also want to check your speaker wires. The wire may be making a poor connection at the terminal. Try cutting a couple of inches off the end, stripping the wire and reconnecting.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a yamaha htr 5890. I would like to hook up


You are probably connected to the pre-out jacks. These are not amplified. Connect them to the B speaker outputs(screw down connectors). If that won't work (and it should), you can connect to the "Presence" speaker connections(spring loaded connections).

How to remove amp from cabinet? reverb doesn't work.


SOMETIMES the handle screws must be removed as well.

I have taken a lot of these out and the key is to figure out which direction it comes out... MOST are out the back and sometimes a board across the back has to be taken off with four screws to clear a transformer.

FIGHTING getting the thing out when it catches on the Tolex covering is the USUAL problem. Takes patience and sometimes a blade to hold the Tolex back.

USUALLY the speaker baffle stays in place.

Speaker wire tabs for neg/pos connections in rear of speaker


The usual spring-loaded speaker terminals can be bought from constructor supply catalogues or salvaged from broken or obsolete equipment.

It should be possible for anyone with a moderate practical aptitude to replace the terminal if the original is beyond repair. It is a largely intuitive process.

This worked for me, but I'm sure tired of constantly searching for ways to fix the problems I encounter with my Denon DRA-397. When it works, it's great, but I don't have a degree in electrical engineering. Why can't they produce a user friendly trouble shooting guide?
