Pioneer VSX94TXH can not power on

I’ve a Pioneer VSX94txh after some days this amplifier doesn’t power on with out cause. The authorized Pioneer service in México can’t repair it because this model isn’t available in México. They tell me that amplifier’s software has been lost. It is possible?

I hope the dealer in USA can repair it. Somebody can help me?
I'm thinking send it to authorized dealer in Tulsa Oklahoma next week.

How to wire Denon AVR 5600 as a separate amplifier in an existing system with a Pioneer SC-57

Do you mean for just 2-channel or what?

The Denon doesn't care what's upstream of it. CD players, other receivers, whatever. The Pioneer has analog pre-outs so you can slave any amps analog input(s) (except PHONO) to any channel(s) on the Pioneer.

If there's not even a hiss from the speakers it may be that you've inadvertently hit the small button underneath the power button which turns the speakers off in favour of the headphones.

My Pioneer GM 5300t amplifier blows fuses all of the time. It says to have two 30 watt fuses in it and thats what i have yet they still keep on blowing. My subwoofer is a Pioneer TS-W302R Twelve-Inch

Do not continue to put new fuses into the amp until you have figured out what is causing the problem. It will only increase the chances of causing more damage to the amplifier. I have been repairing car and home amplifiers for over 18 years and have a lot of experience with Pioneer amplifiers since I work at an authorized Pioneer service center.

This post will be long, but if you bear with me and forgive my long-winded answers you may be able to determain your problem even tho I really don't have enough information to figure it out yet. If not, we can get a little closer with more information.

Does the amplifier blow the fuse as soon as you connect power to it, or as soon as a new fuse is put into the amp? If so, the amplifier has some shorted components in the power supply. They have a bank of mosfet transistors in the power supply that sometimes get shorted when the amp has been pushed beyond it's ability, or just from a random part failure, or if the impedance of the speakers is too low. Your speaker is a 4 ohm speaker, if it is at a lower impedance than 3 ohms when measured with an ohm meter then it will need to be replaced. Even if it still plays, it is too low of a load for the amplifier and will cause more current to go thru the amp than what it was designed for. If you are using more than one speaker and have them bridged it will do the same thing. This amp is rated at 4 ohms bridged and 2 ohms per channel stereo. When you connect 2 speakers together and then bridge them they become a 2 ohm load which causes double the amount of current to flow thru the amp. It was not designed for that. Sometimes you can get these component failures just because there may be a solder joint or two inside the amplifier that is cracked and not making connection very well and this can cause components to short out because they are not operating at the proper voltage.

If your amp blows the fuse only after it has been turned on by your head unit, you will most likely have a blown channel. This would require the replacement of the output transistors of the bad channel as well as a few resistors and sometimes a few other parts.

If your amp will turn on and play for a while and then blow the fuse at higher volume levels or after a long time playing the problem can be either a bad speaker at a lower impedance or one or more components that are breaking down after they get hot or at a certain volume level.

As you can tell by now there are many reasons that an amplifier can blow the fuses, and figuring out just what the cause is can sometimes be a difficult task. It may require that you have a multimeter to do some checks on the amp and a power supply to power the amp on a bench so you can do those tests.

If this information has not helped you to determain the problem, please give me as much information as you can about how you are using the amp. How many speakers, where they are connected, at what point does the amp blow the fuse, and anything else that you can think of that may or may not be important. You never know what might give a better clue, too much information is always better than too little.

Thanks and good luck,

No power to my 51inch vivitek. heard a popping noise and everything whent dead

I had the same problem with my Pioneer PDP-4300

It was caused by a bad Powerboard. I called Pioneer 4 times to get them to fix it (website described problem as their fault and said they would replace). Finally I contacted the BBB and filed a complaint, 2 days later, I had paperwork authorizing my TV to get fixed and within a week someone was out replacing the power board.
