Question about Pioneer DEH-1600 CD Player
Everything worked fine and then no sound all wirers are connected fuses are good every thing turns on. PLEASE HELP!
The most likely reason for this is normally the output amplifier IC in the radio. If this is the problem, you would need to have the IC replaced. One bad speaker can also cause all the speakers to stop working.
If you have a multimeter to check the voltages on the speaker wires I could giude you thru troubleshooting it. It is very common for the amplifier IC to go bad in these radios. I work at an authorized Pioneer repair center and have fixed countless numbers of these radios. But before anybody can be certain of the cause of your problem, some thngs must be checked using a multimeter. Let me know if you have one, I will then tell you how to check what needs to be checked.
A repair for this type of problem on this radio will normally be too expensive to make it worth fixing. These radios normally cost about $100 brand new in the U.S. and a repair for this problem at a service center would be very close to that same amount, making it a better idea to buy a new one. If you do the repair yourself, it would only cost about $30 for the part. But you would need to know how to solder very good and be able to remove the bad IC and solder the new one into the radio. If you are not able to do this very well, please consider replacing the radio with a new one. You would first need to determain if the radio is at fault by checking the voltages on the speaker wires. They should all be around 6.5 to 7.0 volts. That is the normal voltage for speaker wires for these type of radios.
Let me know if you require more help.
