Hi, since both remotes suddenly fail, I am assuming the problem is more than likely with the received rather than the remotes.

If you do wish to check your remotes, then point your mobile phone camera at the remote's Infrared lens and press one the remote's buttons. Your mobile phone camera is able to detect Infrared light and in case you remotes are working properly, you should see light coming out of your remote's Infrared lens.

Make sure that no direct sun light is on your receiver because that can effectively block out the signals from your remote controls.

Try the following method to reset your receiver. Unplug your receiver mains cable from the mains wall socket; power your receiver on by pushing the on/off button (nothing will happen obviously) and leave it like that for say 30 minutes. By that time all capacitors in your receiver will have discharged. Plug your received mains cable in the mains wall socket.Push the receiver's on/off button and see if it know responds to your remote controls.

If the problem still persists, you may have a failed Infrared receiver LED. That component can be found inside your receiver. It will take some basic elelectronics skills to get this component replaced. A service manual can help you. You can download it for free from this website: http://elektrotanya.com/pioneer_vsx-32_33.pdf/download.html

Good luck.

SOURCE: universal home theater remote for Pioneer VSX-305 audio/video stereo receiver

Don't spend a lot of money for a universal remote. Radio Shack has some good buys. I think you are the same person who is having problems with a 305. Get rid of it. You can make a quantum leap at Amazon for less than $200 for a Pioneer.

With the receiver off, press ENTER + ADVANCED SURROUND keys continuously for 2 sec. and it will tell you the fault it encountered. Even if it has a short, it will still protect the speakers; however, it is still a good idea to disconnect all speakers before doing this.

SOURCE: Pioneer Amp VSX-D409 Volume

I have a VSX D508 Looks just like the VSX D409. Had the same prob with the volume control when I bought it. I first tried the cleaner. Better than what it was but didn't compleatly solve the problem and before long it was getting worse again.
It does have a rotary encoder instead of the traditional varible restance volume control. I finally broke down and removed it from the board and lightly sanded the contacts with fine sandpaper.
This involves removing the whole face from the main board and chassis. Not that bad, a couple screws and some ribbon jumpers and latches and it's off.
Next carefully pull the volume control straight off the shaft, remove the nut under it and lay it face down on a soft surface. Remove the screws that hold the circuit board to the face and slowley seperate the too, you'll have to release some latches also to sepperate them.
If you replace the volume control with a new one or clean the old one you have to go this far because it's soldered to the front side of the board. Yes, it has to be de-soldered from the board.
This control was not designed to be dissassembled but I was able to carefully open it and remove the shaft to totaly expose the contacts for a complete even couple of passes with the sandpaper.
I did have to use some 5-minute opoxy when I put it back together because I couldnt get the metal tabs to close as tightly as they were before it was opened.
I soldered in the volume control, put it back together and it's worked perfectly ever since. I don't know how much pioneer wants for a new one but I can tell you they wanted $69 plus shipping for a new remote for my receiver. And with this style of volume control you might be at their mercy as far as finding one from another source that fits.

Pioneer VSX-D412 directv remote code


I also have the VSX D412 and DirectTV. My DirectTV remote controls the D412 fine, but I did have the same problem you're experiecing with a Sylvania flat screen that the remote wouldn't operate. I corrected my problem by turning the TV off, then back on using the TV's remote, then telling the DirectTV system that I didn't know the model number and let the system search for the code. Hope this helps.

I have a pioneer vsx d608 and the remote works only for the power and muting. I pushed some buttons on the face of the receiver and the all functions worked with the remote (not sure why). I turned it off...


I'm pretty sure the front face buttons have nothing to do with the intermittent success or failure of the remote to work - unless by some chance a given momentary control is 'stuck' on.

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Display&contents=help_deadremote&uuid=A12963989782821

They also sell replacement remotes.
Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

I have your solution! We were having trouble with this too. As you may have known, the Pioneer AXD7248 came with a receiver, the Pioneer VSX-D409 / VSX-D509S. If you look up the manual for the receiver, you will find how to program the remote on page 23 of the manual and the codes starting on page 53.For the convenience of everyone else who googled AXD7248, here's a direct link to the page to download the manual: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Pioneer-VSX-D509S-Receivers-manual/id/385ci970/t/2/

Does pioneer model vsx 403 come with a remote control? If so how can you relace it?


I have the same unit. It does come with a remote. The original remote is pretty much impossible to find. But also there are some companies that sell remotes for it. Google Pioneer VSX403 remote replacement. I have yet to get a remote :D
Good Luck.
