Question about Pioneer Audio & Video Receivers

5 Answers

I've had a Pioneer SX-R9 stereo tuner amplifier, that came with a remix control mixer, twin cd players, an effects unit and a md recorder, for 10 years, but today the amp died on me. I try to switch it on, it switches itself off. I've taken the fan off the back and cleaned it, and used a mini hoover to clean inside the amp itself, to no avail. I love this system like a...dog or something. Can you tell me if its possible to get the amp repaired in London somewhere? Any help would be really appreciated! Andy

It sounds as though I have the same system as you which I bought in Japan in 1998. The amp is making a strange whurring noise so I figure it could be on its last legs.

Did you get yours fixed and what were the ballpark figures.

Thanks

Hi there,
The general fault come up with the AV recievers is:
My A|V receiver says, "OVERLOAD" and shuts off, what should I do?

Poor wiring connections, bad wires or a bad speaker may cause this. As you increase the volume, you will increase the amount of current you are drawing from the receiver. To troubleshoot this issue, try the following:

1. Disconnect each speaker wire connection. Inspect for any frayed or damaged wiring and replace it.
2. Check the impedance of the speakers; make sure they are properly rated for your stereo. In most cases, they need to be 8 ohms. Only a few Pioneer receivers will support lower impedance.
3. If the problem still continues, try these steps:
1. Turn the receiver off.
2. Remove one speaker.
3. Turn the receiver on.
4. Increase the volume.

If the receiver overloads, repeat steps 1-4 (selecting a different speaker each time). If you disconnect a certain speaker and the receiver no longer overloads, have this speaker checked at a service center. It could have a bad speaker component, like a tweeter, sub-woofer, or even a bad crossover.


Regards
Ellin

    An amp is not a too difficult unit to repair, the engineer test the component on the amp board, following common diagrams. The job will cost you no less than fifty pounds, probably more.


    Call for example this one in East London Armstrong Hi-Fi Video Services Ltd

I have a Kenwood KR V6090 tuner amp. Can anyone please tell me if I need a record deck with or without a pre amp fitted.


Hi. Some amplifiers provide power for a record deck (or you mean a vinyl record player). Some vinyl record player have their one amplification system, some don't. Those with the amplification system work fine on older amplifiers but others require a back-up power, like a transformer to provide power for the record player. You need to enquire with the store person on the type of record deck or record player you can use directly with the V6090. I had an early Pioneer Amplifier and a matching record player so that I could play the vinyl disc and LP's on full volume. Later I switched to digital Pioneer 7 channel. This couldn't accept the record player because it did not have a power substitute like the older Pioneer. So, when the record player plays, no signal is being sent to the amplifier and therefore, no music is heard, except from the needle.

I have connected Pioneer PL-990 turntable to SX-255R receiver through PHONO but get static and distortion through speakers. Manual says to connect to AUX not PHONO but cannot see AUX on receiver. Any...


You need to hook it up to another analog input other than the phono input. The record player has a built in preamp, and the receiver's phono input has a separate preamp for non-amplified players. You cannot have the two hooked to each other.

Can I connect my pioneer SX-255R stereo receiver


Yes, but it depends on your laptop hardware and software. We'd need to know a lot more about that side.

I have just been given a Hitachi ax-m68 amplifier.. can it only be used with the other seperates it comes with such as the cd and tuner, or can i use it for decks and a mixer somehow? I dont have the cd...


to use it with either decks or a mixer check to see if it has record out and play in ("REC OUT"/"PLAY IN") for tape 1 or tape 2 if so you can use a mixer connected there. If no tape inputs or record out you could only use the CD ("tuner" is a internal selection not an input selection) as play back connections.
Post back if you have more questions

There's possibly some leakage internally.

Do you have a normal (Playback only) CD player on the MD/CD-R input? It's supposed to support a RECORDING device as you can see by the OUT (REC) connections. A recorder would have shielded cables there and maybe the circuitry is such that ungrounded/unshielded output to the recorder allows a leak of the FM, which is developed inside the receiver.

Since you know that FM is leaking why don't you just selct some other idle source before selecting MD/CD-R? Have you also heard, say, the DVD, if it is playing when you select MD/CD-R?

Or skip the analog route entirelzy and run digital cables from your CD player to one of the Digital Inputs, if you have a spare one. They're all functionally the same. I guarantee the FM won't get in that way.
