Question about Pioneer VSX-516-K

1 Answer

Overloading I recently bought a 61" pj samsung tv. I hooked it up to my receiver to listen to football games in 5.1. However, the receiver stays on for maybe a minute and turns off flashing at me that it is overloading. How can it be overloading when all i have is a DVD player and a tv hooked up to the receiver? I have only had the receiver for 5 months and now i can't even listen to the radio without it overloading. How do i fix it this? Thank you, Devon

    I'm using 5 speakers that are seperate from the TV set. The front two are sony(100w). The center(100w)pluse 2 rear(60w) are celestion speakers. Also, i have a 100w sub hooked up to the receiver. My TV has a 30w stero audio system. I have a fiber optical out and two RCA out's on my TV. I have tryied them all one at a time and no dice. I'm running a hdmi from my DVD to my TV and using fiber optical cable from my dvd to my reciever for the sound.

What speakers are you using? Are they seperate from the TV set? How is the audio attached to the TV set. What inputs I mean are you using for the speakers and the sound for the TV set?

    OK it seems you must double check all of the speakers and the wiring. Try disconnecting all of them and see if it still overloads. If it does, there is a fault in the reciver /amp unit. If it does not overload, connect up each speaker till it overloads, take back off that speaker to see if it overloads again. If it does not, check that speaker, and the wiring. If you check all of the speakers and they seem fine, I would say you have a problem with the reciver /amp stage of the unit.

I have a Denon 1611 hooked up with XBOX, DVD, and CHARTER CABLE BOX to a SAMSUNG UN55C8000. For whatever reason I have no sound coming from my (TV) speakers and no sound at all when I switch to my game...


It would appear that your receiver, from pictures I looked at, has 4 HDMI in and 1 HDMI out. Looking at the specs of the tv, it has 4 HDMI in. I'm guessing that you have your receiver set up with speakers and sometimes you'd rather listen to tv speakers? I didn't download a manual however, usually to get sound from tv speakers you may have to turn off av's speakers or, there may be a way to bypass. If you could give me more info on hookup and what you want to do I could probably be of more assistance.

I am missing red color on my samsung 61" dlp tv


I bought this tv March of 2008, and Feb 2009 light engine went out, confirmed by TV repairman. Went through samsung directly.. WORST COMPANY EVER!!! No longer make this part, took 6 months to tell me that, after order went to 4 different repair companies. Finally, they offered $1770 to replace tv.. and weeks later, received a call that it was not approved so they offerred $1200. Still waiting for this check.. paid $2399 for this tv, still owe $1100!!! Samsung has worst customer service ever and do not stand behind their products. If you find replacement part for this tv, please post.. the part is expected to cost $850 and has to be professionally installed at $300.

Samsung DLP TV won't turn on


This sounds to me like one of two possibilities. First, check your ballast. If you're going through bulbs faster than you think you ought to be, you may have a ballast that is overloading. Its the 3" x 8" circuit board that connects directly to the bulb. They are plentiful and often cheap. Thats what I'd try first. If that doesnt' do it, I would invest in a new power supply board. That the board that the tv power cable hooks directly in to. This should give you a start, Comment back if you still need further help. Good luck.

If you are getting the same problem with both TV monitors it could then be assumed it's an input problem to the TV monitor. If you are using a digital output from your receiver it could be the cabling. If you are using an analog output from your receiver it is probably coming from the receiver.
Digital video processing does have issues with darker scenes.
Can you try another video source seperate from the receiver like a DVD or better yet an analog VHS, if you still have one. Good luck and let me know.

Sound issues Samsung series 6


The speakers that come with built into the units are very limited at best. Better than the old 4" speaker that came in TV sets from the old days, but not by much. Ask if you are not expecting more out of the output than is reasonable.
I would offer that the true design intent is to hook the HDTV into a home surround system, a home system is optimized for and designed for your listening pleasure. I'm guessing that your HDTV is an LCD with a sound bar at the bottom, if so it is for general use and not intended for critical listening.
I have a 61" Series 7 DLP and even with larger built in speakers, the difference is night and day between my surround sound system and the HDTV stand output.
