Question about Pioneer Audio & Video Receivers
Hi, Ihave a Multi Channel receiver Pioneer model # VSX411S - bought in 2002- 2003. The Input Selector knob broke, its above the larger master volume knob and we need to replace it. It requires taking unit apart so we might not be able to do it ourselves. Can you advise us on this?
The unit is in what is called "protect" mode. A problem was detected in the final output stage and that stage is turned off. The most common reason for this is failed output transistors. This is a simple repair for any repair shop and will cost about $10-$15 for parts plus the local labor charge. Expect that the output transistors plus a few supporting parts to be replaced. Most of the time, only one channel is badm, but due to the design of the protection circuit, both channels are turned off.

If you receiver doesn't have phono inputs,you will need to buy an inline phono amplifier.Phono inputs have a built in amplifier,all others don't.Try Crutchfield.com.If they don't carry them,they will tell you who does.

Be sure the sound source has a center channel output ie. not a 2 channel source only, try the test tone setup for 5 or 6 channel balance, if no sound from the center channel still then it is looking like maybe the center channel is blown.

It sounds like your volume control pot has dust in it.You need to remove your cover from the receiver,spray pure denatured alcohol in the small openings in the back of you volume control dial and turn the knob all the way up and down several times and then blow low compressed air threw the same small openings while rotating your dial.That should fix your problem.Be sure you unplug your receiver before performing this procedure.
