Question about Pioneer VSX-D209 Receiver
I have a Pioneer VSX-D209 receiver. When the sound gets too loud it shuts itself off. Usually it shuts off between the volume level 40 to 50.
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!
