Open Question

Unable to get any sound other than static from the speakers when trying to play the receiver on a pioneer sx-2300 stereo receiver. the volume has to be turned all the way up just to get static.

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 surface.

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.

SOURCE: My Pioneer Receiver (SX-255R) won't

Just to be sure we are talking the same unit I have included the link to the user manual for SX-255R
http://www.pioneernz.co.nz/Site/Pronto/Files/user_manuals/SX255R%20USER%20MANUAL.PDF

Suggestions
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.

Good luck
Please do drop a comment to say how you progressed.

Bought a Pioneer SX580 receiver, everything lights up but can't get any sound


Do you know for sure that it works okay? i.e. did you hear it playing through speakers before you parted with your cash?

Have you checked for buttons that switch the speakers on/off (Speakers A/B A+B) or a manual mute button?

I have tv hooked up to the pioneer but the TV will not play its sound through the speakers? what Am I doing wrong? I have the DVD hooked to the Pioneer and it works fine.


Is the unidentified TV a sound source from the SX-315's perspective? Is it's audio output enabled whene the TV volume is down? Would the Cable Box be a BETTER source?

Pioneer SX-2300 powers up, but no sound.


Does the output relay click about 5 sec. after powering on? If it does check if the tape2/tape monitor is on. Check speakers and wiring. Try headphones.

There aren't any fuses for the output.

If no relay then it probably needs output transistors and a few resistors.

Pioneer receiver sx-315


With persistence, I was able to program the Universal Remote Control provided with the cable box to control my new used Pioneer SX-315 receiver. I now can control the tv volume, cable box, auxiliary stereo receiver with speaker system with one remote. Thank goodness I did not have to resort to buying a Pioneer remote control.

I was able to program another previously unused universal remote which I purchased several years ago. However, since the other remote control did not list the Vizio TV. That brand is too new for the remote.

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.

Sounds like you may have an output transistor/module about to go out.
