The PCB is probably cracked. It can be repaired, but I am going to assume any shop would charge you at least 100$ or more. With the age of the unit, you are missing many of todays modern features (which may or may not be of concern to you). If you are interested in saving the most money, then consult your local repair shop, as you will probably not be able to replace it for the $ to have it repaired. But if you are willing to spend a bit more, then you can have a new, modern receiver with no repair history.

You need to hook it up to another analog input other than the phono input. The record player has a built in preamp, and the receiver's phono input has a separate preamp for non-amplified players. You cannot have the two hooked to each other.

You should have an headset jack on the computer. This is the easy way I have found to play music on other systems.

The only relevant speaker spec is the impedance. As you probably realize the Pioneer SX-255R recommends 8 - 16 ohm speakers.

Four ohms is on the hairy edge of too low. You could certainly try it but if any strain or excessive volume is used you could see something go poof!

The low end of 120Hz says don't push the bass to them.

Pioneer sx-255r can i connect 6 - 8 ohms


Yes, you can use them but be careful. These are not necessarily robust speakers. If they sound strained, back off.

Can you hook it up to the tv to get sroundsound


You can grab a copy of the manual here:

http://www.pioneernz.co.nz/Site/Pronto/Files/user_manuals/SX255R%20USER%20MANUAL.PDF

The short answer to your question is: No.

This stereo amplifier provides for up to two sets of stereo speakers. System A and System B. There is no Surround capability in this stereo, only straight Left and Right on system A, system B or both.

Using this stereo and speaker system will probably sound better than the speakers inside your TV however. Simply connect the "Audio Left" and "Audio Right" output jacks with RCA patch cables from your TV, Cable Box or Satellite TV box to an unused input on the rear of the SX-255R (CD, LD/DVD, Phono, etc.), then select this same input when you want to listen to TV audio.

I hope this was very helpful - and good luck!

Yes, but it depends on your laptop hardware and software. We'd need to know a lot more about that side.

My Pioneer Receiver (SX-255R) won't play anything. I only have a CD player connected to it. The screen only says "Muting." I've tried unplugging it for 30 minutes and re-connecting. Still says...


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.

Constant Buzz coming from SX-255r


Power source harmonics. Or its power supply regulation. Check also if input line is touching something.

Ipod connection


If the amplifier has a normal AUX selection the ipod can be connected using a standard single AUX cable.
