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.

SOURCE: Pioneer power LED is Blinking

If that didn't work, with the power off try holding Tune + and Auto surround/stream direct buttons for a few seconds to reset the protection circuits. Make sure to keep 8" of empty space above the unit for air, as overheating can cause this problem. If it fails again, there could be bigger problems, so get it checked

No sound out of the pioneer vsx-1121-k


Hello,
Try removing all the speaker and the HDMI connections; then use a headphone to listen to music from the tuner or a CD in stereo mode. Better in direct mode. If you hear your music correctly the receiver could be working correctly. If no music is heard, you may need to have it repaired professionally.
If you can hear music, connect the main FL & FR speakers and verify you can hear music that way, without the headphone connected.
If you can hear music that way, connect the center and rears. Try a mode that uses all channels to verify all sound channels are working.
Then, and only then start adding your HDMI connections.
Good luck

What your unidentified TV >>requires<< is the BEST Video from every video source. That would be the DVD, SAT Box. It probably has multiple high-end video inputs, right?

What your receiver needs is at least a basic composite video connection to the TV so you can set it up and manage it.

A web search for "Pioneer VSX-D308 manual" will find the manual.

ALL of the BEST Audio should go directly to the Pioneer. That includes the SAT and DVD player.

Your TV can exist just fine with basic audio from the video sources. And you could still watch it/them without the Pioneer turned of if you want.

I can't find the exact manual for free anywhere but if you download something similar like http://www.retrevo.com/support/Pioneer-VSX-D409-Receivers-manual/id/385ci977/t/2/ it should give you the basic guidance you need.

I recommend

Do some web searching for what the cables are for. It's all basic and standard.

Does it indicate a problem with the fan? (Page 67)


FAN STOP

blinks in the display, then the power automatically switches off.


• Something is obstructing the fan. Remove the obstruction and try switching the receiver back on. If the

fan is still not working, or you can't remove the object, unplug the receiver from the wall and call a Pioneer

authorized independent service company.

• The fan is malfunctioning. Unplug the receiver from the wall and call a Pioneer authorized independent
service company.

Check for dust balls in and around it. Disconenct power before exploring inside.

I just bought a vsx-1019ah receiver. I connected


Check if your KuroLink is on or off. There are a lot of problems that users have been having with the KuroLink on. Since you have a Pioneer display, KuroLink might help in switching both the receiver and the display on and off together, but my advice to you would be play around with the settings (in your case, especially KuroLink). Also remember, the KuroLink is on by default i.e. if you've never changed this setting, it probably is on.
Hope this solution works, else check out the Official Thread on Pioneer VSX 1019 AH-K on avsforum. There are a lot of helpful people out there.
