SOURCE: pioneer vsx-519 no sound from center and surround

Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.

SOURCE: Problem for Pioneer VSX-818V-K 5.1 Channels

Test with an surround sound media ie. Blu-ray or DVD)_. Disconnect the front and all other speakers that are working to see if sound from the missing speakers are heard. If this doesn't work then start by tracing and checking all the wires from the receiver to the speakers for bad/shorted/open connections.

SOURCE: Overheating receiver

I opened my receiver up and found the fan not working. So I took the front of the unit off so that I could access the fan. It looked brand new so I don't think it ever worked. I checked the fan connection with a volt meter and found 12 v only the fan still would not run. I took the red wire coming from the fan and put it to ground. Cut the yellow wire off the fan. and the black wire to the middle of the connector on board. there the fan worked. now I have a working fan. maybe this could be your fix just don't lose the screws and remember how this comes apart. I know the fan works not so sure it fixes problem but at least the fan is working so thats a start. At least it won't overheat. hope this helps

SOURCE: pioneer receiver vsx-d510 sub not working

Rear Surrounds are not supported on this unit, they would be the 6th and 7th channels in a 7.1 rig. I think you mean Surrounds (channels 4 and 5 in a 5.1 rig).

Lets ponder: How is there any relationship between Surrounds and your separately-amplified Subwoofer? I don't see it, unless you inadvertently chose OFF for the Sub definition when you were in the Speaker selection menus adding the Surrounds. Look again.

SOURCE: Pioneer VSX-01 TXH receiver turns off

Sounds like the speaker circuit is overloading or the receiver is overheating.

Check to make sure all speakers are in phase. Pos to Pos. Neg to Neg.

Make sure receiver has plenty of cooling room.

Hope this helps.

Pioneer VSX-821-K receiver overheating

If you can obtain an ohm meter, check the speakers by touching the leads to the meter and see what it says. The meter should be set to measure < 1 kohm. If it shows lower than 4 ohms you have a bad speaker. If you have multiple speakers on one channel then it cannot handle the drop in resistance and it is overheating.

CaRC not working on my vsx823

With some of these elaborate setups, the receiver overrides your settings and connections to configure a default arrangement for certain functions. The rationale for this is often buried obscurely in the equipment instructions. You may have to resort to trial and error, connect and disconnect to get a satisfactory result.
