Pioneer vsx-d902s

Hi
i have inherited a Pioneer vsx-d902x, without a manual or remote control. the trouble i'm having is that i'm not getting any sound from the speakers. i am using Bose "Freestyle Speakers". i've tried connecting the speakers from the rear and multi-room part of the panel, but to no avail.
i get sound through the headphones, but not the speakers.

am i looking at a problem that can be fixed without the manual or without taking the unit to the repair shop? do you have any idea what might be the problem? please help! thanks!

    thanks for your input Robotek,



    i've decided to un-inherit the Pioneer VSX-D902S. i heard the relay click when i turned the unit on and i checked the speakers as well. it seems like the problem was more with the speakers, though a trip to the "tech" would be an answer at this time. i'll let the original owner solve the problem.

    i appreciate your time, thanks again for your help.

Hi Tracey

Most of these older machine had speaker switches on the front panel. Can you check what they are set to. It may be that both switches(A and B) are set in, or set out. this could present the problem you are having with no sound. turn on just one switch that corresponds the connections you have made on the rear (use speaker A) Another thing to check, is when you first turn on the amp, do you hear a relay click shortly after you switch on. If you don't hear this delayed click, then there may well be a problem in the output stages of the amp. If this is the case, then you will need to take it to a tech to have a look and see what has failed in the amp. Hope this info helps, if you have any questions, I am happy to try and help you further.

regards
robotek

Your receiver has a wonderful recessed button on it for resetting. I know this as after a flurry of putton pushing, I rendered it unusable. The reset button is just above the PHONO button. Simply press it while the power is on. It will erase the internal memory and place the unit on standby/off mode. Be sure to check the speaker on/off buttons on the left above the headphone jack. Pressing them toggles the particular speaker set between on and off. Thats about it. By the way, the 902 was a rather expensive receiver for its day. I bought one on EBAY for around $65. I recently acquired the hi quality audio bug and purchased some upscale (for me anyway) Paradigm Monitors. I was contemplating buying a new receiver or amp combo, but after hearing the speakers on the 902, I decided it sounds fantastic and will keep it. I would suggest getting it back from your friend :-).

We have this same receiver and their is little "jumpers" that connect the pre amp to the amplifier. They are in the back. Without the jumpers, you will not get sound from the speakers.

I bought a used Pioneer VSX 50 receiver and it did not come with the remote My old remote is not pairing with it. How do I get them to work together?


Hi Pamela,
if the old remote is not for the same make and is not one of those multi remotes that can now be bought then it will not work with the pioneer VSX or if it is from another Pioneer VSX then it may need to have the code re entered by Pioneer.

I would suggest to go to a shop that sels equipment of the same kind and ask for their advice and also whether they do multi controllers that would work, a shop such as Maplin (if you have a Maplin store where you live as they can be very helpful with such problems).

GOOD LUCK.

Does pioneer model vsx 403 come with a remote control? If so how can you relace it?


I have the same unit. It does come with a remote. The original remote is pretty much impossible to find. But also there are some companies that sell remotes for it. Google Pioneer VSX403 remote replacement. I have yet to get a remote :D
Good Luck.

NO MANUALS OR REMOTE


this is the html version of the manual, mate:

http://216.239.59.132/search?q=cache:u0BNrr-T5QoJ:www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Unassigned%2BContent/ci.VSX-D812K%2B%2BOwners%2BManual.Protected+VSX-D812+7.1+Channels+Receiver+manual&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=15&gl=uk&client=firefox-a

and this is the PDF of the manual:

http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pio/pe/vgn/images/portal/cit_11221/50202operating_instructions_VSX-D812_2003411101157200.pdf

You could call this number to see if you can get a remote control for it. (905) 479-4411

PIONEER ELECTRONICS OF CANADA, INC.
300 Allstate Parkway, Markham, Ontario L3R OP2, Canada TEL: (905) 479-4411

Otherwise, you could buy a universal remote control, they're really cheap, and google 'universal remote codes' and you'll find lists of numbers that you input into the u.r.control, listed by brand, so just look for the Pioneer ones under 'Receivers'.

good luck

Pioneer VSX-D608 Optical connection


The manual states that the default association of each digital input in as follows:
  • Optical 1: CD
  • Optical 2: MD
  • Optical 3: TV
  • Coax: DVD
Use the "Signal select" button to set the receiver to use a digital input, and the Dolby/DTS button (above "Signal select") to enable decoding.

As samz11 stated above, a remote is required to alter the digital input mapping.

Pioneer receiver VSX-D411


Yes techtod you are right you do have to tell the receiver what you want it to do usually on the front panel you can access set up menu and go into input set up This is an example Say you plugged the dvd into optical one or coax 1 you must go to the input that says dvd click down till you highlight dig input and then select optical 1 or coax 1 there can be as many as 8 digital inputs so just check wich one you plugged it into and then tell the amp then you should be back to watching your digital movies
