Could possibly check your fuses most of the time if any thing will go the fuse would be the 1st since a fuse is designed to "blow" by creating an open circuit to protect more expensive circuit components from damage

My VSX 517 amp's sound is outputted before the vision on the TV. The sound seems to be anything up to half a second ahead, it is not always out it depends on how long someone is speaking for, plus which...


Lip Sync issues are the nature of the beast. The TV has to process the digital video bitstream a lot more than the receiver has to process the audio so the result can be a gradual lagging of the video behind the sound...

Some receivers have a sound delay control which you can use to try to sync them up. You didn't name yours so one does not know. I don't think this unit has that function. Look in the manual.

Pioneer vsx 511 amp error


Hello

There are two IC links on the main PCB (Printed Circuit Board) labelled IC604 w522 491010 and IC605 w522 491010 these should measure open circuit (damaged).

The PCB has a warning:
Caution: Replace IC links as marked manufactured by Littlefuse Inc

Finding replacement IC will solve the problem.

I do hope that my information is acceptable.

Hi can I hook up my marantz mm500u amp to my pioneer 305 vsx audio reciever


I presume you just want to slave the Marantz to play whatever the Pioneer is playing.

Run a pair of RCA cables from either the Pioneer Tape Monitor REC or the VCR/Tape 1 Out jacks to the desired Marantz Input jacks. DON'T activate the corresponding switch on the Pioneer.

Only the basic Leftand Right channel programming that the Pioneer plays will be available at the Marantz. You will NOT have centralized volume control at the Pioneer.

Pioneer audio/video receiver damaged


Hi...
The problem is probably that the bad connection "took out" a couple of the power transistors/power mods in the amplifier

If you need a pro to fix it I can suggest someone depending on where you live

Relay clicks, no display only the volume lights


Hello,
This is a common problem with a few of the Pioneer of that era (VSX-3300, 3700, etc). A secundary power supply line is faulty and it prevents your display from working. It is not an easy DIY, but a local tech should be able to fix. It is not always the same exact cause, as there are a couple transistors, a zener diode and a cap that can fail.
You can continue to use it without any detrimental effects on the unit, and can guess the settings.
Good luck

Hello,I have a Pioneer VSX-D710S 5.1 reciever get hot and smell l


Heatsinks on mosfets are probably not connected, or broke connection. If you are not trained in electronics dont go poking and proding around in there, a capacitor can easily kill you. If you have some knowledge open it up and see if you see and burnt components etc. You may just need new heatsink grease etc. Does it have a fan that stopped working? If a piece is visually fried take the unit to your local electronic repair shop and see if they can solder in a new part if available. depending on the price of the amp, it would be ebetter to go spend money on a new one.

Vsx-9900s


Hi angelo40

The amp sounds like it has a primary power supply failure and/or may be in protection mode. First, I would check for any blown fuses, replace any you fint with exactly the same type and rating. I can advise you here if you are not sure. If the unit blows a fuse after replace any failed ones, then there is a short circuit that you will have to trace out in the unit. DONT KEEP REPLACEING A BLOWING FUSE You generally are just doing more damage to the amp.

If all the fuses are OK and you are savvy with electronics and soldering, you could open it right inspect for these problems., and you have a multimeter, do some powersupply voltage checks, also check for that the main transformer is ok. Resolder any dry joints you find.

It may also (and or) have a problem in the output stages. Running it hard may have produced some dry solder joints, or blown a transistor in the output array. Happy to advise you further, just ask :)

regards
Graeme

Stand-by light on, but receiver won't power up


Power supply problem. Most equipment today has remotes and the power supply has to remain on to sense the remotes signal.
But the actual receiver section does not get power until the remote says so or you hit the power on button on the unit. Internally the supply then feeds the device. Most likely cause is a power surge or storm.
See if the remote will power it up?
I presume this is still under warranty. If you don't have it plugged into a good surge supression outlet strip, Get one!
