Question about Pioneer SX-315

2 Answers

I have a Pioneer sx 315 and at lower volume levels it plays fine. However if you turn the volume up high, like 30 or better the unit turns itself off. Had the unit for a couple of years and it has just started doing this recently.

If the vent holes are blocked .. Unblock them.. Then just play with some settings a little and it should work fine.. Mine overheated and kept shutting itself off.. My mom gave it to me and said if I could get it working, I could have it.. It got going just fine within the hour..

The unit is overheating, or at least thinks it is overheating.

Blow the dust out of the thing and see if that helps. If not, you have a thermistor that is bad or is going bad. Probably the thermistor nearest/on the audio amp transistor's heatsink.

I have tv hooked up to the pioneer but the TV will not play its sound through the speakers? what Am I doing wrong? I have the DVD hooked to the Pioneer and it works fine.


Is the unidentified TV a sound source from the SX-315's perspective? Is it's audio output enabled whene the TV volume is down? Would the Cable Box be a BETTER source?

I don't have sound even if I turn knob at top level. The sound coming from my speaker is not loud what button should I touch to get more volume converter sx-316


Turn it down to 1/4 while troubleshooting or you may destroy your speakers after you find that button, whatever it is.

Has it NEVER worked or did it suddenly start acting this way?

Do ALL sources act this way or only one(some)?

I'd look for a the Mute button or a Tape monitor incorrectly selected.

Dead no power.. checked main fuse, worked fine last night, went to turn it on today and nothing. its a sx-316 not sx-315, I say this because it tells me this is not a valid model#, but sx316 is printed on...


Check the resistance of the primary on the main power transformer, (with power off) should be 1-3 ohms. If open you need a new transformer.

If good turn it on and check for ac voltage (120v) there.

Pioneer receiver sx-315


With persistence, I was able to program the Universal Remote Control provided with the cable box to control my new used Pioneer SX-315 receiver. I now can control the tv volume, cable box, auxiliary stereo receiver with speaker system with one remote. Thank goodness I did not have to resort to buying a Pioneer remote control.

I was able to program another previously unused universal remote which I purchased several years ago. However, since the other remote control did not list the Vizio TV. That brand is too new for the remote.
