Question about Pioneer VSX-D511 Receiver

1 Answer

Only Left Speakers Work

I was just given a used pioneer vsx-d511 and everything seems to work fine except none of the right speakers work. There plugged in right and i know they work but there isnt any sound coming from the surround or front speakers. I think it has something to do with the speaker selection but i dont have a remote.

Hello,
Thanks for the detailed explanation...
It seems to be there is a short or misplaced (+) (-) leads on the speaker connection you made..sometimes a tiny cable piece can make a short in between the leads and cause such problem..My recommendation is:
** take all the wires off..
** install only B speaker leads and test it..( make sure LEFT and RIGHT (+) and (-) leads properly
and individually connected to the right places on the back......it is important...This causes balancing problem..
** if it works fine...
** than go ahead and install the A speaker leads..and test it..
if you do everything properly both A and B speakers should work fine as independently ...

Take care and if it succeeds please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up

I have my vsx-1018ah receiver hooked up in for 7.1. Everything was fine for months. Now the back right speaker won't work. Speaker is fine, connection is good. Tried hooking up a different speaker and...


Assuming you're using the Surround Back speakers for their primary purpose, let's establish that there is something in the way of programming being routed to that speaker. Fire up the speaker level setup procedure and use any handy audio device (*) to see if a signal is present at the Surround Back Pre Out jack. If not, that speaker will never, uh, speak.

* For this test you could use your powered subwoofer. You DO have one, right? Just swap the RCA cable from Sub W Pre Out to the SB R Pre Out jack to see if anything appears there.

Reciever only allows 2 channels(speakers) at a time.


If the amplifier is not receiving a surround sound signal, you will get nothing from the rear speakers and probably nothing from the front centre. Play a dvd in dolby surround and it will work.

OVERLOAD


HOW MANY SPEAKERS ARE YOU RUNNING? IF you are running more than TWO speakers, the very FIRST thing to check is to make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: Some Pioneer equipment have internal overload protection systems to prevent permanent damage. However, you cannot re-set these systems yourself. Your dealer or authorized HK service center must do this.] But, before you take your unit in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. Visually inspect connections at the receiver and speakers first. You might find something obvious! If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the right front, test the system,and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Hopefully one of these "fixes" will work for you. GOOD LUCK!

Clark, you MIGHT have a simple problem here. Let's keep our fingers crossed... This problem generally has more to do with the speaker WIRES or their IMPEDENCE than anything else, even though the receiver displays "AMP ERR." (Technically, it IS an amp error, but the source MAY not be the amp!) The very FIRST thing we need to do is check to make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. (Pioneer says 6, but that's not necessarily a good recommendation, particularly if you listen LOUD.) Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: Your receiver has internal overload protection systems to prevent permanent damage. On SOME Pioneer models, these can be "reset" but you can't do it yourself. Your dealer or authorized service center must do so.] But, before you take it in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. 1) Visually inspect connections at the receiver AND speakers. You might find something obvious! Look for bare wires touching one another. Again, you must look both at the receiver, AND at the speakers. 2) If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers at the receiver; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the right front, test the system, and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Hopefully one of these simple fixes will get you up-and-running. Good luck!
