Question about Pioneer VSX-05

1 Answer

No sound out of Front Left/Right Speakers on 5:1 setup

Have switched speaker connections around and run setup and Lev tone test(s) Only ONCE out of multiple setups did the speakers even show up and have a tone. Have switched front/rear setups too. Brought in another speaker and it tested with a tone - but only once.
I'm thinking that the front speaker setup in receiver is fried or at best near fried with the limited # of successful tone test (2).
Any other tests to try and verify?

I set up my RX-V365 recently, and the center speaker doesnt seem to work. i use it for listening to music, the sound should come out right?


Sound from a speaker, nah, that's an optional feature (kidding).

If you dig into the manual annd go through the setup using the test tones you can prove/disprove the viability of all the speakers and channels. THAT is required before we try to listen to 'music' (assumed 2-channel) on multiple speakers.
Sound Field programs (page 25) can be applied to just about any source. Experiment, even within a given recording. You'll be amazed how different digital processes can make even familiar recordings new and more interesting. I've discovered instruments and sounds in old recording I never noticed before.

Auto MCACC Screen Appearing


It would appear the unit thinks your McAAC microphone is inserted. Is it?

Automatically setting up for surround

sound (Auto MCACC)

The Auto MCACC Setup measures the acoustic characteristics of your listening area, taking into account

ambient noise, speaker size and distance, and tests for both channel delay and channel level. After you have set

up the microphone provided with your system, the receiver uses the information from a series of test tones

to optimize the speaker settings and equalization for your particular room.

Make sure you do this before moving on to Playing a source on page 11.

Important

• Make sure the microphone and speakers are not moved during the Auto MCACC Setup.

• Using the Auto MCACC Setup will overwrite any existing settings for the MCACC preset you select.

• Before using the Auto MCACC Setup, the headphones should be disconnected and the iPod

USB, XM or SIRIUS Radio function should not be selected as an input source.

1 Switch on the receiver and your TV.

2 Connect the microphone to the MCACC SETUP MIC

jack on the front panel.

Place the microphone so that it's about ear level at your normal listening position (use a tripod if possible). Make

sure there are no obstacles between the speakers and the microphone.

The Auto MCACC display appears once the microphone is connected.1

Note

1 • You can't use the System Setup menu in either the main or sub zone when the iPod USB, XM or SIRIUS Radio input source is selected. When you set ZONE 2 to ON (page 61), you can't use the System Setup menu.
• If you cancel the Auto MCACC Setup, or leave an error message

etc.

It's all in the manual.

Some background on the process...

It can be either problem with the receiver itself, cables or your speakers. You can try different combinations to narrow down the issue.
1) Also the radio does not work?

2) Try to run the Test tone to the speakers (Setup / Speaker setup / Manual setup / Test tone). If you hear the tone, then the issue is configuration problem with your inputs.

3) If possible, try to connect headphones to the receiver. If that works, it can be issue with cables/speakers or their setup.

4) Try to run the Automatic Speaker setup with YPAO microphone. It will eventually fail, but will provide you error code, which you can lookup in the manual for different reasons.

5) Try disconnecting all the cables and reconnecting them again, possible trying left speaker with right cable and right speaker with left cable.

With what signal did you try? Maybe your signal source (DVD/TV or radio) didn't contain any sounds for the center channel.
Go to the Setup menu, Speaker setup / Manual setup and find there item called "Test tone". It will output a test tone to each speaker individually (you will see on LCD which speaker is being tested at each moment). If you will hear a sound from the center now, there is no issue and center is working fine, just your source didn't contain any sound for the center.

If it doesn't work, then either you have faulty cable, faulty speaker or faulty center output of the receiver.
- Try connecting the center speaker to different output of receiver (this will test if speaker is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker to left output with CENTER cable (this will test if cable is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker with working cable to the CENTER output (this will test the output of receiver if OK - but use the Test Tone from Setup).

6140 will not complete the AUTO SETUP


If you would like to bypass the auto setup which is apparently the root cause, use a test cd/dvd for your test tones. The auto setup while convenient is not the optimal way to get the best result as the test tones it uses are bandwidth limited pink noise. If you would like to use the auto calibrate however, it's likely needing repair to do so.
