Question about Pioneer Audio & Video Receivers

2 Answers

I just bought a used Pioneer Elite vsx-49tx receiver on ebay and cannot get any audio output at all.I noticed in the manual that there are 2 u-shaped connectors that are supposed to be in place but are missing.These connectors jump between the power amp in terminals to the front channel pre outs.I'm assuming this could be my problem? Also,there is a input selector dial which should select a source component but does absolutely nothing.Any ideas? Thanks alot in advance.

If you have no sound, you can try the multi channel inputs on the back after switching to the multi chan input. If you have sound that way, you have a DSP problem. I can repair this issue to the component level, as many customers have found, the boards are very expensive, and no longer available. If you're interested in repairing your receiver, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com.

You are correct. The Pre-amp outputs must be connected to the AMP-inputs. A dual RCA cable will work just fine. This setup is to allow for easy insertion of an outboard piece of equipment like an EQ.

I HAVE A PIONEER VSX35 ELITE RECEIVER THAT HAS BEEN OVERLOADING. IT SEEMS TO NEED MORE VOLUME TO MAINTAIN NORMAL LEVELS. IT CYCLED OFF THEN CAME BACK ON TWICE. NOW IT ACKS LIKE THERE IS NO OWER, ONLY RED...


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.

Your PC can be connected like any other digital or analog audio source within its sound connection capabilities to any compatible input on the VSX. Just make sure you enable the PC's audio outputs and raise the volume.

Pioneer Elite vsx-27tx receiver with no bass!?


There may be a subwoofer mute function on your amp. The sub out is nothing more than a preamp output with a low frequency response. It is meant to be amplified by an external amp. Either check your powered subwoofer for operation or look through your operators manual for a sub mute function.

I have bad static from my Pioneer vsx 49 Elite


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!!!!!!
