SOURCE: pioneer vsx-d511 amp error

I've had the same problem for over a month and have yet to find the time to get to it. However, I there may be a fuse on the circuit board that needs to be replace. That's just my guess.

Hope it's the solution.

SOURCE: receiver randomly shuts off during play

This is the "Protect" mode. It is either a bad speaker, or not good ventilation, or a channel going out in the receiver. Please provide more details about the problem so I can help you better. How long is it playing before it shuts off, does it shut off even if the volume is low? Disconnect the speakers form the receiver and then turn it on and let it play without speakers, if it still shuts off then the problem is not the speakers. More information is needed to better diagnose this problem.

SOURCE: Pioneer VSX-D209 receiver shuts off when too loud

Dear Tabasco,

Your receiver is basically going into protect mode.

Just check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Take out all the wire and put them back again if necessary..
Some times even a little tiny frayed wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.
Just check your speaker as well....whether they play all right thru another receiver or amplifier. its posiible they might be shorting inside. A little frayed wire could also trigger the protect circuit in your receiver.
I hope this should solve your problem.

If everything else seems all right and still your receiver shut down when you raise the volume then it possible that there are bad connections on the main board that are set in.

This would generally happen if the system is slighly old or have dry solder and when you raise up the volume. This should be a simple repair that will not require parts. If you can solder, you will be able to repair this yourself. If not, then a local service center will change the local labor rate.
Hope you can sort out your problem with the above trouble shooting. Let me know if I can guide you further.
Best of luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: Pioneer VSX-D509S keeps shutting off

Aside from any intrinsic problem with your receiver, the usual suspects are;
1) Poor receiver ventilation. 2) Very high levels of bass. 3) Shorts in the speaker wiring. 4) A rubbing loudspeaker voice coil.

While watching TV (all audio ran through my Pioneer VSX-516), the receiver shut off by itself, so I powered it back on. Then it powered off again a couple mins later, and wont power up at all now. I...


Try holding the "advanced surround" and "enter" buttons and see if it turns back on. If it shuts off again, disconnect all speaker wires and try it again. If it stays on, you have a bad speaker or wire. If it still shuts down, the amp is blown and needs to be repaired.

Why does my pioneer vsx-d557 automatically go into MUTING WHEN I turn it on?


Maybe you have MUTING selected. Turn the volume knob up or toggle the Mute control on the remote.

If it defaults to muting on power up find the manual and search it for a default volume setting.

My Pioneer VSX-D557 keeps clicking into the MUTING mode


I'd suspect a wild remote control or other I/R source in the area. Hide all the known remotes and block the I/R eyeball on the front of the receiver and see if it still happens.

When i plug in the head phones into my pioneer dsx-d557 receiver the speakers stay on. The headphone jack works but whats the point if the speakers still work.


It may seeem counter-intuitve but there are those who would love to have that ability.

You can always turn the speakers off while you're in the vicinity of the front panel plugging in the headphones.

Hooking up optical input output


What kind ot TV?

Not sure what you mean by all signals.

Think about this: if your TV had any AUDIO capabilities that were superior to your REAL audio components, why would you need them?

The TV is the end of the line. Wouldn't it make more sense to get your TV-related audio as close to the source as possible? Your BD, DVD, cable and satellite all have high end audio outputs just begging for a place in the Pioneer.

I turn on my Pioneer VSX-D509S 5.1 surround amp comes on for a few seconds and then it says "powering off"... and shuts off


Disconnect all your speaker wires from the back of the receiver and turn it back on. If it shuts off, you need to have it serviced. If not post a comment and I can walk you thru troubleshooting. Hope this helps

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


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.

No amplification


The transistors are marked with the part # on them A1302 for example would be 2SA1302. most transistors all you do is add "2S" to the front. If the fuse opened then you may only need the two transistors, if it did not then you will need to replace the dual emmitter resistor and a few resistors 4.7ohm and 100ohm are common in pioneers.

VSX-D704S


Have the speakers disconnected and turn on unit. If it still shuts down due to thermal protection the amplifier IC pack is damaged. Amplifier IC is tied to one side of the power supply by design. The left channel is probably shorted at the MOSFET on the pack. Nothing you can do but have it serviced. This is a common PIONEER failure.
