Question about Pioneer Sx-2300 Am/fm Stereo Receiver With Graphic Equalizer
Cannot get any stations on the receiver and only static out of the speakers. the speakers work fine with the cassette and cd player. also the volume has to be turned to the max just to hear any static when trying to use the stereo receiver.

You should try disconnecting the unit from you vehicle for at least 5 minutes to let the eprom reset, when you connect it back in hit the reset button and she should restore herself back to factory settings. If this does not work im afriad your going to have to take it for repair.

You've got dirty pots mate! You need to clean all the dust
and **** from inside the sliders and the circular trims. The plastic shaft ALPS pots in the DJM600 don't have a sealing bush so if
you pull the knob off and spray some "no-residue contact cleaner"
down the shaft you may get it to the bottom. DO NOT use WD40 as that leaves an
oil and will clog the pots (as the oil will eventually mix with new dust and
make a gloopy paste) This would then break the sweeper contact with the resistive
Virtually all the ALPS pots on the 600 are stereo so as you have lost a channel some of your pots have lost connection already. Cleaning may help but if not you may need to strip down desolder the troublesome ones and replace (or if your feeling brave bend open the tabs and clean internally)
Don't worry though. I got the right cleaner (electronic use no-residue stuff) from a car accessory shop and it all started working again without opening her up.

Just to be sure we are talking the same unit I have included the link to the user manual for SX-255R
1. have you tried to press the Muting button on the remote unit.
(item 11 remote unit diagram)? does it make any diffrence - what if the button is stuck?
2. Have you tried to play the Tuner radio - what happens then? do you still get Muting.
3. You mentioned something about speaker wire coming out.
I understand that Pioneer receivers shut off if any of the speakers is faulty, ie, correct impedance is not showing at the speaker input point.
Usually the newer units give an "overload" message. It is possible this could be happening and the SX-255R gives the "muting" message instead. Some people have reported very minute shorts where strands of the speaker wire touch the body and it causes "overload".
One way to check is to remove speakers wires one by one and see if the "muting" goes away. Then you can check the offending speaker if that is what is happening.
Please do drop a comment to say how you progressed.
