Question about Pioneer VSX-D2011 Receiver

Open Question

Sound cuts out on Pioneer VSX-D2011S, getting more frequent.

The sound started cutting out (both on speakers and headphone) a few months ago, with no error messages (display continues to work normally, responds to selecting different inputs, turning the volume control, etc). When the fault occurs there are no crackles or pops, the sound just stops, almost as if the mute has been activated.
To get the sound back, I have to leave the amp unplugged for a couple of hours, then usually the amp starts working again.
It has been taking less and less time for the fault to occur, until finally tonight I got no sound at all after power on.
I have checked the main voltage regulators, and they seem OK, but I have no circuit diagrams to do further checks.
If anyone has any circuit diagrams for the VSX-D2011S or has any advice on further checks I would appreciate any help.

SOURCE: Pioneer VSX-36TX popping and crackling during warm-up period

I have the exact same amplifier with what sounds like the exact same problem. I opened up the amplifier, and while it was powered on started tapping around until I heard the popping and crackling suddenly increase. I was using a piece of wood and the plastic part of a screw driver for this. The popping and crackling suddenly burst out onto all channels when I was tapping on the DSP board (encased in a metal enclosure to the very right of the amplifier).

I took off the metal enclosure (with the receiver turned off, of course :), and with the receiver on, and started tapping around the DSP board, and I found that the biggest crackling effect was achieved when I tapped on the Cirrus Logic CS493292-CL chip which does all the decoding and switching.

I detached and took out the DSP board and looked at it very carefully but of course couldn't find any bad connections. I tried resoldering all the feet of the Cirrus Logic chip and many many components all around to no avail.

Finally I tried applying pressure to the chip while the popping was going on, and it stopped. Further investigation revealed that bending the board around the chip produced the same effect.

For the life of me I couldn't figure out why bending the board eliminates the problem, but my solution was to put a piece of eraser wrapped in masking tape and taped to the Cirrus Logic chip, and two other pieces on the back of the board in such a way that when the metal enclosure was replaced onto the board, it put gentle but firm pressure onto the Cirrus Logic chip and at the same time bent the DSP board slightly.

It's been a few days without popping, clicking or static, but time will tell. Good luck!

SOURCE: my pioneer vsx-d507s keeps turning on mute

I have had the same problem, since there is no "mute" button on the receiver panel. My power cord on the receiver was plugged into my cable box and I was told this is not correct. I unplugged the receiver from the cable box and plugged it into my power surge protector and no more "mute"!!! Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My pioneer vsx-519V-k amp won't turn on. Just

Have you checked within the set, the fuse and if the standby circuit is working. thre could be a failure of this sub votage which is required for the switch on of the main power. If you do not have any standby indication you must check this section, however if you arre getting the standby you would have a failed output or a shorting that is triggering the error amp to swtich off. If you are familiar with the circuits you can check but I would suggest that since you will need more experience to look into the main board for tracing the fault. In such case check for the service centre nearest to the place you are in using a google search for Pioneer - Audio systems- sevice. Helpful I hope. Good day.

SOURCE: pioneer audio video receiver VSX-D710S but there is sound to the speaker, but no audio coming from the player

Try to check the audio setting of the player. If you user using optical or coaxial then the audio out put format setting should be Raw other wise it should be PCM. You will see the setting if you go through the menu of the player

Internal speakers won't turn off when external audio is connected


Normally , you would expect the TV sound to stop when headphones are plugged in. Obviously not in this case. If you have a set of headphones, try them and see if the TV still has speakers on. If it does, then there may be a setting on the setup of the TV to get headphones to work. If the TV speakers stop, then I would think that the Logitech are not compatible with the TV. The only other thing would be is to get into the TV and disconnect the TV,s own speakers. If the wires are soldered on and not terminal connected, carefully cut 1 of the wires off near the speaker. If 1 wire is cut, the speaker wont work. Make sure both the TV and the additional speakers (If they have their own power supply) you are using are unplugged from the power before you go doing this...!

Headphone jack not working


Hi,

I find that there is a problem with your headphone speaker.
Try with some other headphone, even if it is not working, then you need to take it to the service center.



Cheers,

I bought this Acer aspire 7535g laptop off of my mum's friend which was in great condition when I bought it. The sound was perfect. Every driver was up-to-date. However now... 8 months on, the sound...


You can try booting a live linux CD or thumbdrive and see if that gives you sound. That will give you an idea if it's Windows or a hardware problem. If it's a windows problem try uninstalling and reinstalling your drivers. If that doesn't work keep searching around or just try a fresh install of windows.

The fault is in the cable: you will have to dismantle the left speaker housing and start cutting from the cable until the break is removed then solder it back to the speaker - use an multimeter to check the continuity of the wires.

Can't hear sound on one of the headphone's speaker


It's less common for one of the speakers to go bad in a set of headphones. It's possible - but there are more common problems that will cause this. I assume you have tried the headphones on another device to rule our a problem with the device you are currently listening with and using the other device, you still only hear audio from the left speaker.

The wires in the cord that connect the plug to the headphones are very thin and are susceptible to breaking. The most commmon place for these wires to break is at the point where the cord is flexed or stressed the most. Those points are:

1. Right at the plug
2. Where the wire enters into the left and right speaker.

There are occasions where I have seen the wires become unsoldered from the speaker terminals within the headphones themself.

What You Can Do:

1. While listening with the headphones, try flexing the cord back & forth at the plug and where the wire goes into the right speaker. See if the audio will come back and cut out again.

2. What I have done is cut the cord about 3" back from the plug. Go to Radio Shack and purchase a new plug and install a new plug on the cord.

3. You can also take the headphones apart and cut a few inches off the cord where it connects to the right speaker and reconnect the new end of the wire to the right speaker. The goal is to cut away the bad part of the cord and re-attach the good part back.

4. You can try to replace the entire cord but I haven't been able to find replacement (THIN) cords too easily.

Good Luck,

- Jim
