Question about Pioneer VSX-C302 5.1 Channels Receiver

Open Question

(actually VSX-C300) channels cuts out when playing surround

Playing 2-channel sound works fine. It's when I turn on surround-sound that the problems starts. After a few minutes of playing most of the channels cuts out. It sounds like the fronts still works but the center and surround-channels doesn't put out any sound att all. I've noticed the small fan on the back of the reciever doesn't run even when the reciever feels hot. I've had the fan out and tried running it and it seems to work (jury rigged a couple of 9v-batteries to try it out).

Any ideas would be appreciated.

SOURCE: Connecting a sub-woofer to Pioneer VSX-453 surround reciever

connect to same terminals as front speakers, this will also cause reduced volume from front speakers. (as per owners manual)

SOURCE: Center Channel not working on pioneer vsx-d608

Be sure the sound source has a center channel output ie. not a 2 channel source only, try the test tone setup for 5 or 6 channel balance, if no sound from the center channel still then it is looking like maybe the center channel is blown.

SOURCE: reciever only allows 2 channels(speakers) at a time.

Two solutions:
1. make sure you are sending a 5.1 signal to the receiver (my DVD player was configured to only send stereo even if I picked the 5.1 soundtrack, i had to fix that). Read the manual to see the indicator lights that would light up if you are sending a DTS signal or Dolby Digital.
2. Use the 'surround modes' to at least get pseudo surround

No surround sound


Review the speaker set up instructions to determine whether the correct sizes have been selected. In some speaker configurations, signals are mixed or redirected to compensate for size limitations and other factors.

Check your center channel. Most dialogue is routed to the center channel in surround.

Your speaker may be blown take out the speaker that is hooked up and attach another one a house speaker would even work, and i bet your speakers are blow if not check the wires and make sure you have them connected properly if not check the wires going to the harness and to the speaker and if not i think the radio is fried you can also take a long speaker wire take radio out the dash and run it to the speaker if it does still the radio is fried take it back before 90 days is up!

Yes. It is 5.1 surround. There are 2 front channels, 1 center channel, and 2 rear channels which comprise the "5" in 5.1 surround. The pre-amp output channel for a sub is the ".5".

I had this problem too. Finally, after using the MCACC setup and making sure all the speakers worked, I found I had to set the source to FM, TV or whatever from the remote control and set the mode to advanced surround sound using the front panal button on the upper right. Had to fool with them a lot. Good luck.

Surround sound not working properly


this isnt a solution to your problem but i have a suggestion. I see this problem has been posted a couple days now and i think that because your problem looks like it involves more stereo equipment rather than the xbox 360 console. i think you would get a better answer actually a soltuion if you posted this in the stereo section.
