Very Low sound

Hi Guys , I have Pioneer IS-22CD CD . I haven't used it in a bout 2 months but when I set it up again yesterday you can't hear any sound until the volume is at level 25 and at max volume its audible but still low .This is at all function eg radio, cd, aux in etc. Also , the tape deck doesn't open anymore . This is all baffling me completely as the system was fine before I put it into storage(it was in a closet ) . Can anyone help me please I love that stereo and paid over a grand for it . Its just over 2 years old . Cheers, Robbie

Re: Very Low sound

Make sure none of the tape monitor switches are on as this is a typical symptom when one or more of the tape monitor switches are active.

Hi Thanks for your help, One year old Sony mini

sir i think ypur unit is ok and run correctly... try to check your speaker maybe your speaker got open or burnt... you can test it by swapping your speaker to another unit or you can test your speaker using multitester...just point your selector at resistance test a speaker has 8ohms reading....

the speaker has a two terminal.. a positive terminal and a negative terminal... your multitester has a two lead.. red lead which is a positive and a black lead which is negative..
measure-speaker-impedance-1.1-800x800.jpg Multimeter probe sockets (NL Graphics) Insert the probes of a digital multimeter in the correct sockets of the multimeter. There may be several different sockets for the probes depending on what parameters you're measuring. Look for the sockets marked "impedance" or displaying the ohm symbol. Different models and brands of multimeters will vary in their labeling, so check your multimeter's manual if you're not certain about which one to use.

  • 2 Select the range for the multimeter. Since you'll be measuring fairly low resistance levels with a speaker, choose a range that will encompass readings in the 2-16 ohm range. It's extremely rare to find speakers that will have an impedance outside of that range.
  • 3 Touch one probe to each of the speaker terminals and check the reading. This will be the impedance of the speaker. Record the measurement, and when you're done, turn off the multimeter to preserve the batteries for the next time you need the multimeter.

    Hissing sound at low volume

    have you tried to replace your rca cables? sometimes these tend to wearout at the connection point from being pulled off from products they might have been plugged into.also check all your wires for any fraid areas where wire might have been crincked under such items as sofa foot pegs and such. hope this helps

    No sound whatever

    when you switch the unit on make sure that you hear two clicks, this will tell you whether the protection relay is working. Should you hear the two clicks this will indicate that the audio ic`s are working. There are fuses inside the main component box, four on the transformer. Let me know the outcome

    Malfunctioning Pioneer XC-IS21t

    I'm not sure what that could be but probably the amp. section. I have a xc-is21t, that came out in year 2000, I use it almost everyday, and it works excellent. Unfortunately a friend of mine has dropped the whole unit on the floor, and guess what it's still works perfectly, only problem the sliding door for the cd(but only the see thru plastic part) is broken and I'm not sure where can I find this part. I wrote a letter to, so hopefully they can locate the part for me. The only problem with this model that it doesn't play mp3 but again this was only made in year 2000.

    Pioneer X MT- 2000 Stereo Bookshelf Unit - No sound!

    It definitely sounds like it took a surge. yhe Power Amop IC in those things are pretty sensitive. Any decent repair shop should be able to repair it for under $125.
