Heatsinks on mosfets are probably not connected, or broke connection. If you are not trained in electronics dont go poking and proding around in there, a capacitor can easily kill you. If you have some knowledge open it up and see if you see and burnt components etc. You may just need new heatsink grease etc. Does it have a fan that stopped working? If a piece is visually fried take the unit to your local electronic repair shop and see if they can solder in a new part if available. depending on the price of the amp, it would be ebetter to go spend money on a new one.

How can I connect an analog turntable to my Pioneer VSX-D710S? Also, do I need a turntable with a built in pre-amp?


According to the specs there aren't any phono inputs which would have their own preamp. Everything else is line level so I'm pretty sure you'll need a preamp either between the turntable and one of the line level inputs or built into the turntable.

Hi ! I have a Pioneer AV receiver VSX-D710S and i have a problem with sound ! At the maxim volume (0db) the sound it's verry low an when i make volume ajustments i heard in speakers some knoking !...


The first thing you need to do is to disconnect all the speakers.

Then connect them one at a time and see if you get the correct volume on any of them.

If you don't get the correct volume on some of the speakers then it's those speakers that are faulty.

If you don't get the correct volume on any of the speakers then the fault is with the internal amplifier and you'd need to take it to get it repaired.

Pioneer VSX D710S, I hook everything up and turn the unit on, after about 5-10 seconds it flashes POWER OFF and shuts down.


I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for free detailed circuitry.


A precise make and model might yield more-specific answer.


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

Pioneer VSX-D710S and the message SP off and DTS off message appear and I have no sound. Any ideas how to turn them back on?


The SP off message is the setting for turning the speakers off while headphones are connected on some Pioneer models. If yours is one such model, hold down the RECEIVER button and press the SPEAKER (text may be written above another main function) button on the remote simultaneously and the sound should return.

In the owners manual it says to check for speaker wires touching the back of the unit. I have the 710s and this problem became more and more annoying! I had two have two amplifiers replaced in it for $180.00, problem solved
