Pioneer VSX-D209 receiver shuts off when too loud

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.

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!

I just bought a used VSX-D906S and surround speakers. Should it have surround in the DSP mode, or is that only available in the ProLogic mode.


DSP modes usually act on ANY input source, including stereo. Are you saying you have no surround speaker fucntions? Get in the setup and define, then adjust them.

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.

Pioneer receiver shuts off


This might not be any help to someone else, but I fixed the problem by double checking all the speaker wire connections - on the speakers and behind the receiver. A couple banana plugs felt loose and I discovered that one connection on one speaker was out completely. Suppose I should have seen that sooner, but as soon as I ensured all the wires were where they were supposed to be, I encountered no more problems.

If your Pioneer receiver is shutting off on you, double check all your connections!

Its over heating no cheap fix. But wait if u buy an eternal fan n place it on top or behind it will do the trick. Try blowing on top when static happens n sound comes back on.
