SOURCE: Losing sound in certain modes

I get the same problem with my Nakamichi, but it never bothered me much, since i can't notice any quality drop, besides, its only radio. I remember it happens only on certain stations though, which leads me to believe it might have to do with the broadcast itself which oscillates and varies in amplification from station to station, and is affected by weather and geography. If it really botheres you, try getting extra juice amp for your tuner from some specialy electronic store. Good luck

If you get sound on direct mode say from dvd but no sound when you go to dolby make sure you have the right input selected by pressing the digitat input button on the front of the amp,ie if dvd optical out is pluged into amp optical input 1 select this on amp then set audio to prologic2.DVDs through this input will decode to dolby digital/dts.
hope this helps.

SOURCE: listening modes not working??

I am a little hesitant to tell you what this is because sometimes people give bad ratings to an expert when they do not get the answer they want to hear. I will take a chance here and assume you are a reasonable person and tell you what the most likely cause is. I have been reparing these type of receivers for as long as they have been making them, and every time I see this particular problem it is always something on the digital board. This is the board the the optical and coax inputs go into on the back. They also run all the audio thru this board, and when you only get the audio that you have, a problem is going to be found there. There is some good news and some bad news that goes with this, first the good news. Many times (about half), the digital board only needs to have some of the solder reflowed on a few of the IC's and it will return to normal operation. If this is the problem your repair should only cost from $90 to $150 depending on the rates of the shop. Now the bad news, if the board has a couple of bad compnents on it, it will need to be replaced. The reason that is bad news, is because those boards are very expensive, usually over $250 just for the board, if the board is even available. Many of these receivers you can not get the digital board for them. Most all of audio equipment is component level repair and there are not many technicians who can troubleshoot these boards, they are a very difficult task.

I hope this free information was helpful, and if so a "FixYa!" would be the appropriate rating. You do not need to have your receiver fixed in order to give a good rating, only that you are given the correct information.

Let me know if I can be of any more help to you, good luck with your Onkyo.

SOURCE: I have a Aiwa Stereo Receiver Av-D58. The sound

If I remember this model correctly, there is only 1 direct input. The remainder of the inputs are bufferred through a switching IC. It is likely that this IC is defective. Are there any other symptoms at all?

Thanks,
Dan

hi,

Sometimes it happens. ( age ) or possibly cold solder

joint or mis communication on the Digital Controller

and DSP Unit.


• One way to check is to verify each input if it can pass

output ( line Out ) signals.( at the back of the unit )



• If it does then you just have eliminated a large percentage

on electronic circuits troubleshooting.


• There are more details or info starting

on page E 25 of the manual


[PDF] Download the owners manual - Arcam AVR250 surround sound receiver
have a recheck and triple check on the settings.


But if you need a thorough investigation on the DSP

circuits , it might need a service manual

only with a fee.


And be the last resort as to confirmed if it is really the DSP.


• You can use an external amplifier or a signal tracer when

probing signal outputs on the receiver.


• Here is a link for sample troubleshooting :

a ) Start with the input , then to the op-amp IC. b ) check your cable like those above for co

these unit is just a guide, not the same as yours , but the

process o f troubleshooting and principle is the same.


Only if you feel to DIY.

Pioneer VSX - 26 TX single-processor receiver elite no sound work fine one day turn on have no sound checked all the connections everything's good here clicking in the receiver can you help me


You may have overloaded your amp. If you have a separate amp in line then this would not be the case but if you are using your receive as the amp then it could be. Look for a fuse on the unit. Usually a small black square marked with 15a.

Good day, I need your asst. I can't seem to remove the 2ch playback from my VSX-49TX Elite Pioneer reciever, I tried reseting it and nothing happen...can you help me.


If you have no sound, you can try the multi channel inputs on the back after switching to the multi chan input. If you have sound that way, you have a DSP problem. I can repair this issue to the component level, as many customers have found, the boards are very expensive, and no longer available. If you're interested in repairing your receiver, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. There you will find the seminar I wrote for Pioneer, when I worked there as a Field Service Engineer, specializing in audio. You can contact me directly from my website. Thanks you.

Pioneer Elite vsx-27tx receiver with no bass!?


There may be a subwoofer mute function on your amp. The sub out is nothing more than a preamp output with a low frequency response. It is meant to be amplified by an external amp. Either check your powered subwoofer for operation or look through your operators manual for a sub mute function.

I have a pioneer elite vsx 36tx receiver that quit working. When I turn it on it just hums. It seems like a power supply but not sure.


I have the same receiver.

Do you mean there is an audible hum from the unit, or that speaker output(s) hum?

Let's figure out what DOES work...

Do you get the audible relay click a few seconds after power up?

Does it tune FM?

Can you get the On Screen Display? Settings all ok?

What preceded this? RSVP.

Pioneer elite tv turns off from a pop sound and manual says-will


It is most likely the power supply. Do not try to fix this yourself. There are LETHAL voltages inside such a TV, which can persist for WEEKS after it has been turned off.

DVD video stops; audio continues


This definitely sounds like a circuit board-level issue. Have you tried moving to a different input set (i.e. if you're now on the TV inputs, try the DVD or AUX inputs for both video and sound)? Just to rule out the obvious, have you made sure that it's the receiver and not the DVD player? I know that you said you powered down the receiver, but if you had turned it off by pulling the plug on the surge suppressor and your DVD player is in the same suppressor, you might want to make sure it's the receiver and not the DVD player.

If you're sure that it's the receiver, then you might want to look into taking it to a Pioneer service center to have it repaired. If it's not worth the cost to you, it might be time to be looking into a new receiver.
