Reciever no sound till warms up 10-15 mins.

I have had zero problems with this reciever till lately. I have to leave it on or it takes a long time to warmup (no sound till it does). Now it makes static noises which will sometimes go away if I change to direct or stereo, hit or miss. the unit is on the same power supply as the sat. reciever, DVD, VHS they all are fine. any help is appreciated.

Re: reciever no sound till warms up 10-15 mins.

Last Summer I had the same problem myself. Also i had not OSD video output on my TV until it was warm enough. After may hours of troubleshooting, and examination of the service manual i found 2 faulty devices IC903 (7805 +5V Regulator) & IC904 (7806 +6V Regulator).
These 2 devices look Ok if you check them without load, but drop their voltage under load, so in the first time i thought they were ok, and put them back, but after excluding one by one case, I finally test them with load and then I saw their misbehavior.
The voltages to check are: In Regulator Unit (1U-3201-1)
a) the +5V[D3] (mine was 3.5V and gradualy rised to 4.5V)
b) the V6V (_+VVideo) must be +6.8V (mine was +3v only)

You better check the outputs of all 78xx regulators just to be sure.

Some days ago mine started to make noises and sound cutouts and it seems that this time must be a 7812 regulator that has only +10.1V output.

Re: reciever no sound till warms up 10-15 mins.

It could be a bad capacitor that is causing the unit to act that way.  I'd suggest taking in to a local repair shop to get serviced.  Right now my Denon AVR-3200 has this problem with the left channel from time to time. (I plan on getting this checked out as soon as I have time and will post my results as soon as I do).
Also, the amplifier itself could be on the way out; I've had this issue with other amplifiers before they completely died on me.

I suddenly get audio but no video through all hdmi inputs

If you have you video componenets patched through the reciever, then to TV, this can happen. The reciever can transfer video but, it more connections, not as effiecient, and, leaves more room for error. Your video componenets should be run directly to TV, if you TV has the inputs, via HDMI, component, or RCA the, run a single output, best, digital optical out from TV to reciever. You can use the TV's menu to choose what you are watching and, only have the one audio output from TV to reciever. You would leave the reciever at the same, Aux, Vid 2, selection all the time. You will get your best picture and best audio this way.

Capacitors may need to be replaced they begin dying out over time and need to be replaced. They usually hold a amount of electricy so that when you start the component there is no waiting period when they dry out or begin to fail in time it may become longer and longer until it stops coming on at all.

First to confirm if its a transport problem play a CD from track 1 to the last. If it is not getting stuck and smoothly plays till the end -- transport is OK. The same laser unit which reads the disc also writes. But when it writes the laser intensity is several times higher and the unit runs very hot. And old unit will start to misbehave due to the heat. TIME FOR REPLACING THE DRIVE UNIT.

Speakers on my Pioneer VSX-D466S receiver are not working. Is there an internal fuse that may be blown?

some recievers have a monitor button on them. if it gets pushed your sound wont work. look at the display and see if you see the work monitor. if so you should have a monitor button either on the reciever or the remote. it is a toggle button so just push it till it goes away and sound comes back on. make sure to turn sound back down before pushing this button as you might have turned the volume way up trying to hear it. my wife accidentally pushed it last week and she thougt is was broken untill i got home and simply pushed the button.

Fixed the Onkyo. Took apart the balance adjuster and rebent the feather-like things inside so they made contact. Clamped it back together and it works fine.
