Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I have a VSX-D901S Receiver which has been faithfully flawless for many years. Lately it developed a hum/buzz in the front amp when it is first turned on. If I leave it on for an hour or so the hum seems to quiet down but never goes away. By isolating the front amps from the front pre-amps I lose the noise in the amps and have 2 quiet as usual channels. Any ideas? Is it worth getting repaired? It's a great amp and I would hate to lose it. Thanks, Tom

    I HAD the same problem. I took it to a Pioneer authorized repair shop and they fixed it for $75.

    Been working great ever since. However, now I have a new problem-- the remote quit working---completely dead. New batteries didn't help. Any ideas.

Yes it worth to repair it but you must bring into Pioneer factory or service center for Pioneer they are able to repair it
It require to replace a few electrolytics capacitors in power supply regulator if you are in AUSTRALIA it would cost between $150 to $250 to repair it
I hope that give you some idea
Cheers

I have a Pioneer VSX-1019AH-k receiver for about 15 months. Recently it has developed a hum. I'ts present on all speakers and all input sources (cable TV, blue ray, tuner, etc.). I haven't made any changes...


Hum on sound is commonly caused by a leaky electrolytic capacitor on the power supply section and or on the output ic. Dry joints is also going to consider on the said parts.

I've advice you to send it to repair shop to isolate the problem or just look for a qualified technician to do the job. This is quite fixable.

Pls rate my help.

Thanks for using fixya.

I have a pioneer elite vsx 36tx receiver that quit working. When I turn it on it just hums. It seems like a power supply but not sure.


I have the same receiver.

Do you mean there is an audible hum from the unit, or that speaker output(s) hum?

Let's figure out what DOES work...

Do you get the audible relay click a few seconds after power up?

Does it tune FM?

Can you get the On Screen Display? Settings all ok?

What preceded this? RSVP.

How to install bose 901 eq to my pioneer vsx-1019ah-k


This works for all models of AV receivers when you want 901's as Front L&R speakers..

Get yourself a nice separate amp, draw the Front L&R pre-out signals from wherever you can find them. On many, there is a pre-amp out for every channel in case you want to run external amps for any channels. That is how my old Pioneer VSX-36TX is equipped. For others, you may have to borrow the signals from a typical Tape- or Adapter-Out RCA pair. Just remember, AV receivers disable digital inputs as soon as you switch in a Tape Monitor, so choose one you won't have to switch IN. The signal Out is always there regardless of the monitor state.

Patch the Active EQ directly off that point (Amp In from the receiver, Amp Out to the new amp). Run all the speaker level settings on the AV Receiver and rock on.

AVR-4800 - After 30 min audio goes out all channels just hum/buzz


if it is under warrantee then fix it.
sounds like a component is over heating, probably cost couple hundred (or more) to fix it, balance that with what you paid.

I have pioneer receiver Vsx-454 i want to know if this receiver is 5.1 surrounds


Yes. It is 5.1 surround. There are 2 front channels, 1 center channel, and 2 rear channels which comprise the "5" in 5.1 surround. The pre-amp output channel for a sub is the ".5".

Pioneer VSX-D411 receiver "Amp Error" message


Hello,
Unfortunatelly your receiver has failed. The front panel is telling you one of the power modules is probably bad. Not an DIY type of repair. These parts are near $40.00, plus cost of replacing.
Look at options to replace your trusted receiver with a new one.
Good luck
