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 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.

No sounds


Test one speakers at other amp to ensure its working. Amp is going into probable protection mode. Disconnected all speaker and av wires (only power) turn up volume and see if it stays on. If not sounboard or volume function faulty. If on, connect one speaker L or R. Go to tuner mode to tuned radio station an listen for sounds. If sound connect speakers and av cables one by one and test each one on its own until amp switches off, or no volume. Investigate from there were prolem is.
