Question about Pioneer VSX-D3S Receiver
I have had my pioneer vsx-d3s for many years now and it has served me flawlessy, that is until recently. I get a crackling static sound out of ONLY the left front speaker and it is intermittent(comes and goes) and usually starts to happen after about 10 minutes of the unit being on. Yes i have tried a different speaker and get the same results, the speakers are polk audio rt-12's so i did not blow them as they are rated to 250watts rms. All other channels sound perfect and so does the left at first. i dont think its an overheating issue as all the others channels sound fine and yes the fan does work. I am just at a loss for why the staticky sound is happening and why its only the left front and why it comes and goes. it makes the sound regardless of wether music is being played or not which also pretty much confirms that its not a problem with the speaker. Any help advice or hopefully a solution would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry to burst your bubble my freind but things do wear out as you had plenty of life out of this unit.. Your problem is a transistor or a driver IC is breaking down under a load and heat and will get worse to where you wont be able to use the unit.. It will probable cost you in a range of 200 bucks or .more!as there is no quick fix for a solid state unit that has no user serviceable parts inside. Its just not replacing the bad part , its the hooking up to the load resistors then seeing that several other parts are not up par and having to start rebuilding the amp statges of your reciver.. If its more then 8 years old Time to landfill it and get a new one .. Put it to rest. It dosent owe you anything as its been loyal to you all these years!! Good Luck
