Question about Pioneer VSX-D912 Receiver

4 Answers

Our pioneer vsx-D912 reciever sounds like a short is occuring.

We have checked all speaker wires and connectors and everything looks fine. It almost sounds like the speakers are blown, but when we switch them to the "B channel", they sound fine. Could channel "A" be blown?

    Thank you. I wish there was a fix rather than having to go and buy another receiver. Anything that can be doe to fix channel A?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a couple of ideas you may want to consider:

  • a 7.1 receiver as in a Pioneer VSX-D912 would have several amplifier sections. By themselves, they are independent of each other and their only common denominator would be the power supply and sound processing/controller;
  • doubtful if the power supply would be suspect if all other channels/speakers works fine;
  • if the "channel "A" is intermittent them likely a loose connection or most likely a cold solder on the A/B selection board/switch;
  • worst case scenario would be a faulty sound processor/Dolby selector.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

How loud have you been running the System Continuously. Channel A sometimes gets hot and will shut down. It carries the Largest load on the System. Had to replace mine a few years back. Put the old one in my Work shop and now Occasionally Channel A will kick in and Work But, Not Often.

    Unless you can Locate a Local Repair location to Repair it. I would get a New one. Not necessarily Cheaper to Fix and you will be Without for the Time it Takes. Really depends on how much you like the Reciever!

Problem with my xenta surround system


Check that your speakers are still plugged in correctly. I am guessing by what you are saying the high end speaker is blown but the bass is probable still coming through. If you can, remove one speaker at a time and check on another source. If the speakers check out fine then you have a bad channel on the system. A short will also disrupt the sound...just jiggling the wires at the connectors can usually lead you to the right area.

I have a Pioneer VSX-1022 Reciever - I get no sound when it is on the "TUNER"


These models have a problem where it is very easy for the tuner pcb to become disconnected from the main pcb. About the only way I've found to fix it, is to take the back panel completely off and reseat the board.

Pioneer Amp VSX-D912 when I keep the volume at 40 , Power turn OFF


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.

No signal going to my subwoofer. All other channels work fine. How can I verify if problem is with Pioneer VSX-D912 reciever or my subwoofer?


First, did it EVER work?

No? Review the speaker setup in the receiver and make sure it knows you have a sub and is sending LFE to it.

Yes? Feed it a signal directly from a CD player or something. Start with a quiet sound passage as you probably will have no control of the volume.

If you need help beyond this, name the sub and how it's connected.

Speakers used to work fine and now don't. Sometimes you get just a bit of sound and then it stops. The regular sound on computer works and I've checked all volume settings.


This looks like a loose contact, probably in the speakers connector. Try gently wiggling the wire as if to "push" it into the connector. If this restores the sound, temporarily of course, you'll need to purchase a similar audio jack, cut off the old one, strip its wires and solder them into the new jack - three minutes' work if you're familiar with a hobbyist soldering iron.
