Question about Pioneer Elite VSX-9100TX Receiver

Pioneer receiver shuts off

My receiver also shuts itself off, usually when a loud noise plays, but I don't even have the volume turned up that high. Down around -30 to -25db. No warning message, just a red light blinking under phase shift. Pioneer FAQ says it could be the speakers don't have the right impedance, but they're all 8ohms, like they should be.

This might not be any help to someone else, but I fixed the problem by double checking all the speaker wire connections - on the speakers and behind the receiver. A couple banana plugs felt loose and I discovered that one connection on one speaker was out completely. Suppose I should have seen that sooner, but as soon as I ensured all the wires were where they were supposed to be, I encountered no more problems.

If your Pioneer receiver is shutting off on you, double check all your connections!

My pioneer VSX-1016 shuts itself off during loud portions of a movie. I have checked the speaker wiring and have clean connections. Any other ideas?


Yes, evaluate the load presented to its amplifiers by the speakers. If you have any speakers running parallel on the amps instead of one per amp channel you could be experiencing temporary unacceptable drops in impedance.

and

From page 57 in the manual...

• Turn down the volume.

• Lower the 40 Hz and 125 Hz equalizer levels in the Manual MCACC setup on page 34.

• Try switching on the digital safety feature (put the receiver into standby, hold down the SYSTEM SETUP button on the front panel and press STANDBY/ON to switch between SAFETY ON and SAFETY OFF

. If the power switches off even with SAFETY ON selected, turn down the volume.

Hi. I have just connected my Bose Acoustimass 6 series III speakers. When I run a MCACC test, the display shows 'noisy' and there is no error message. If I run it again it stops and shows just noisy after...


Either your ambient noise level is too high for the test, or you need to increase the volume for the test tones.

For any such audio calibration testing your ambient noise level should be as quiet as possible, preferably below the measurable level of an SPL meter...usually 50dB for most models.

Tuner Keeps Turning Off when a Loud Noise is Played


It's a receiver, not a tuner.

Clearly something is overloading it or forcing it into self protection.

What else is drawing power from the same souce as the receiver, or from its convenience outlet. There IS a limit to how much current it will support.

Try checking the speaker connections and their impedance to make sure it's not unacceptably low.

Pioneer VSX-D509S keeps shutting off


Aside from any intrinsic problem with your receiver, the usual suspects are;
1) Poor receiver ventilation. 2) Very high levels of bass. 3) Shorts in the speaker wiring. 4) A rubbing loudspeaker voice coil.

Pioneer VSX-D209 receiver shuts off when too loud


Dear Tabasco,

Your receiver is basically going into protect mode.

Just check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Take out all the wire and put them back again if necessary..
Some times even a little tiny frayed wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.
Just check your speaker as well....whether they play all right thru another receiver or amplifier. its posiible they might be shorting inside. A little frayed wire could also trigger the protect circuit in your receiver.
I hope this should solve your problem.

If everything else seems all right and still your receiver shut down when you raise the volume then it possible that there are bad connections on the main board that are set in.

This would generally happen if the system is slighly old or have dry solder and when you raise up the volume. This should be a simple repair that will not require parts. If you can solder, you will be able to repair this yourself. If not, then a local service center will change the local labor rate.
Hope you can sort out your problem with the above trouble shooting. Let me know if I can guide you further.
Best of luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

The unit is overheating, or at least thinks it is overheating.

Blow the dust out of the thing and see if that helps. If not, you have a thermistor that is bad or is going bad. Probably the thermistor nearest/on the audio amp transistor's heatsink.

Receiver randomly shuts off during play


This is the "Protect" mode. It is either a bad speaker, or not good ventilation, or a channel going out in the receiver. Please provide more details about the problem so I can help you better. How long is it playing before it shuts off, does it shut off even if the volume is low? Disconnect the speakers form the receiver and then turn it on and let it play without speakers, if it still shuts off then the problem is not the speakers. More information is needed to better diagnose this problem.
