I checked all the connections and settings there all fine. But no sound even in radio mode nothing. I unplugged it thought maybe a computer error. But still nothing it works fine no other problems just no sound. Any ideas?

Re: The Sound is Gone.

The circuits that routes all the audio signals thru the amp has either died OR the power supply that runs that circuit has died.
Estimate to fix : $75-125

We received the vsx d509s from our son, he hooked it up, and we were enjoying our surround sound in connection with our tv. However, when I hooked up the cd player, all the speakers worked fine, but now...

It is possible that you have switched it from a surround mode to stereo mode. Instructions on how to select a sound mode begin on page 36 of the manual, which can be viewed at the link below.

My power went out while watching TV. Now there is no sound when I turn my receiver to TV/SAT. If I put the receiver on CD there is sound but no picture. The receiver works fine if I go to DVD; there is...

It would seem the TV/SAT source is where the problem lies. No picture with CD? Really?

How about bypassing the receiver to prove what is failing?

No sound of voice, only surround sound

If you do not have a center channel speaker connected, then in the reciever setup menu for speakers, there should be a selection for center channel that says something like either yes or no. I'm guessing it says yes. Then you need to select "no" so that the circuitry will direct sound specified for the center channel to be reproduced through your front speakers.

Pioneer vsx-519 no sound from center and surround

Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.

Vsx-d711 sound problem

Sounds like ( no pun intended) poor speaker wire connections.
Check the wires at both ends and make sure theyre firmly attached.
If one speaker isnt connected , the amp will reset over n over

There's an integrated circuit that steers all the input signals thru.
That has crapped out.

Poor sound

You need to connect most turntables to a PHONO input or buy a PHONO preamp. Many newer receivers do not have a PHONO input. The AUX port you are using would work fine for a device like a CD player, but turntables need to be amplified. You can buy an external Phono pre-amp from Radio Shack. I don't know anything about this site, but something like this device should work for you.
