Question about Pioneer VSX-35TX Receiver

1 Answer

Pioneer VSX-35TX , "Power Off Message" , will not stay on.

I bought it new in 2000 and this is the only problem I've had. The message, Power Off comes on the it shuts down. As soon as I turn it on again it just clicks and won't start. I unplugged it and got the same thing. After 30 mins. or so I tried it again and the message comes on and shuts down, I hit the power button again, and this time no message just "POP" and smoke.

It's probably going to need output transistors and some resistors, it's a job for a technician. A rough estimate on price is $100 to $130 (that's parts and labor). Before the smoke it may have only needed repair of bad connections.

I have a pioneer vsx 07 11 and it says amplifier error

You see, the error message is coming from the power protection circuit which is constantly monitoring current being drawn from the receiver power supply. When the current exceeds the trip level it shuts down and give the error message.

power amplifiers has been shorted and the output transistors (one or more) have gone into breakdown and causing the excessive current drain. This will happen even though the speakers may not be connected to the amp outputs.

My power went out while watching TV. Now there is no sound when I turn my receiver to TV/SAT. If I put the receiver on CD there is sound but no picture. The receiver works fine if I go to DVD; there is...

It would seem the TV/SAT source is where the problem lies. No picture with CD? Really?

How about bypassing the receiver to prove what is failing?

Pioneer VSX-D710S and the message SP off and DTS off message appear and I have no sound. Any ideas how to turn them back on?

The SP off message is the setting for turning the speakers off while headphones are connected on some Pioneer models. If yours is one such model, hold down the RECEIVER button and press the SPEAKER (text may be written above another main function) button on the remote simultaneously and the sound should return.

I have a VSX-35TX receiver. When I turn on power,the receiver turns itself right off. Yesterday, the receiver would stay on for a few minutes after I turned it on.

Disconnect all your speaker wires at the receiver then turn it back on. If it stays on, your receiver is ok and you need to re-connect each speaker wire and test power. You will either find the fault or fix the problem. If you need further help troubleshooting, post a comment and I will help some more. Hope this helps

Pioneer VSX-D411 receiver "Amp Error" message

Unfortunatelly your receiver has failed. The front panel is telling you one of the power modules is probably bad. Not an DIY type of repair. These parts are near $40.00, plus cost of replacing.
Look at options to replace your trusted receiver with a new one.
Good luck
