Question about Pioneer VSX-94TXH

1 Answer

A/V receiver freezes up and has to be unplugged for it to work "almost normal"..

I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-94TXH which freezes up and cannot be turned off or on, with the remote or power button on the unit. I end up having to unplug it, and when it is plugged back it might power up or not. And still, it freezes over and over and have to unplug once again. Sometimes it stays on for a while, while frozen... that is, the volume will not turn up or down, and no functions on the unit work. It seems to be a short circuit proble or could it be a problem with the power supply or the main circuit board? Before, the problem used to take longer to happen. Now the unit shows the same behavior continuosly.

    Thank you for contacting Pioneer Electronics, Inc.

    There is an update to address this issue.

    If the unit is less than 2 years old, take it to an authorized Pioneer service center with your purchase receipt and they will fix it for you.

    Thank You,

I had the exact same problem with mine. Local repair shop had to replace the main in-put chip on the back of the front panel. Works great now. Cost about $125 out the door.

How do I connect my behringer fbq6200 to my vsx-94txh reciever?

Believe me when I suggest NOT to do this. It's not that it can't be done, but you're really not going to help anything unless your speakers are simply terrible to begin with.

If you desperately WANT to do it, then you would run it through the "Tape IN/OUT" RCA jacks on the back. For it to work, you will have to keep your "Tape" in "Active Status."

I had the same thing with mine. After a couple of weeks in the local repair shop, it was determined that the main? in-put chip on the back of the front panel was bad. Had it replace for about $125 out the door and it's been working great since.

If I'm not mistake, it's dependant on you monitor's ability to display 1080p. I believe the defaul setting on the 94TXH is to read the TV's max resolution and anything above will not feed.
