VSX35-TX Pioneer reciever/amp. I replaced the volume control ASX7004 (common failed component) but still have the same problem, noisy,intermittent volume with cracking and popping. Any suggestions on what else could be causing the problem?

Hi there. for your receiver, the only time it can upconvert is when you go out as HDMI. In your current hookup (component out to tv) the signal from your cable (using a composite) will not be able to pass through the component cable. This means you either have to hook up your cable box using a component cable as well or add a composite cable (yellow) from monitor out of the receiver to the tv. Page 22 of the manual will show a diagram of the video signal flow. hope this helps.. ^_^

sorry no easy solution as it sounds like the output transistors blew out or the emmitter resistors. you will need a service manual and an multimeter to measure the resistors on or around the audio output transistors they are a low value resistor usually around 1 to 2 watts in size. Do not replace any bad , burnt or discolloered resistors around the audio output transistors as if tou do you might just cause more damage to the output transistorsor audio output stage including the audio driver stage of the amp!!!!!!

Having a live-and-kicking VSX-36TX receiver which I love, I feel for you. But the prices have come down dramatically since we bought them. I paid $1200 for mine new. If I needed to replace it I would go with a used one from eBay and consider searching specifically for one that uses the same remote but doesn't have one included. The price would be low.

Like this beasty, no remote for $250 delivered:

or this one with a remote for $232 delivered.

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead

My onkyo tx-8222 suddenly stopped amplifying on both speakers and headphones. I can hear music faintly with the volume at max (just the pre-amp?). Time for a new amp?


Never use maximum volume for troubleshooting. The errant switch or control that you eventually find and flip will suddenly release the amp's full power and you'll destroy your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Look for a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.


Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

No audio output


THE FIX - to audio problems that persist with the VSX-29TX and others using the AWX7272 DSP board is to replace the ROM on the DSP. My unit started failing on and off after 10 years of use! The intermittent DSP board is an Extremely Common and irritating Problem for this model! The replacement IC,(2) resistors + shipping and handling totaled $49.65 and my unit is finally fixed correctly! Don't believe other posts that you can get away with re-soldering; it will continue to fail again and again! Details of fix are:

Replacement for the old Pioneer ROM located at location IC 9374, should be done with the part PD6381A from Pioneer Electronics. You will also need to move (relocate) the 2 resistors (0 Ohm resistors) located at R9372 and R9371 to locations R9374 and R9373.

This component update applies to DSP boards marked as AWX7433, AWX7272.

This fix is validated (from Pioneer) on the VSX-26TX,VSX-27TX,& VSX-29TX it might also work in the VSX-908, VSX-908RDS and others as long as the same DSP board was used.

Let me caution and stress that surface mount soldering skills ARE REQUIRED to do this update! It also doesn't hurt to have excellent vision and/or an eye loop or microscope to check your work. Original ROM's were subject to timing changes internal to the part as a result of HEAT. This model does get HOT! The program was also modified as a further safeguard to re-occurrence.

All remotes controlling my Onkyo TX-SR304 stopped working


try putting the remote an inch away from the IR receiver on the unit and see if it works then, if so then you definitely know its broken. This can and does happen. From what you have posted it sounds like no remote is working on the receiver, the ir receiver can break. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,
