Question about Pioneer Elite VSX-60 7.2 Channel Network Ready Black AV Receiver

1 Answer

Pioneer VSX-60 Volume Decrease each 2 min

Hi . I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-60 A/V received and my problem is at each 2 minute my volume drop by 3 db . I have tried everything like no battery on remote unplug all speaker wire , reset to factory default unplug power cable a day and I think it's need repair but I've tried to find a way to lock the volume but it doesn't appear to have this option on this amp . It's really annoying because I have to keep my remote on my hand to boost volume at each 2 minute . I noticed when I power up my amp it drop -3db after that .

It's a somewhat common problem with that model. It needs a new cpu board.

    also, could be bad connections on the thermistors (resistors that detect temperature). Sometimes these had bad connections on them and they will try and turn down the volume because the unit believes it is getting too hot

    Does it cost high for repair ?

  • Steve K Apr 22, 2014

    if it's the thermistors that are cousing the problem, should be around $100.

SOURCE: Receiver won't let volume go higher than -7 dB

Actually, -7 db and above woul be quite load.

Anyway, I am not very familar with the Pioneer GUI auto setup. But, am aware of how AVR are set-up.

If you have set up the home theatre by auto/manual setup then please check the channel levels whether any of your channels settings is at +7.0db.

If so, reduce this setting where it more +7.0, then you would be able to raise the overall main setting from the volume control to go higher than -7db.( by as much as you've lowered the particular channel setting)

Please do let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: universal home theater remote for Pioneer VSX-305 audio/video stereo receiver

Don't spend a lot of money for a universal remote. Radio Shack has some good buys. I think you are the same person who is having problems with a 305. Get rid of it. You can make a quantum leap at Amazon for less than $200 for a Pioneer.

SOURCE: Pioneer Amp VSX-D409 Volume

I have a VSX D508 Looks just like the VSX D409. Had the same prob with the volume control when I bought it. I first tried the cleaner. Better than what it was but didn't compleatly solve the problem and before long it was getting worse again.
It does have a rotary encoder instead of the traditional varible restance volume control. I finally broke down and removed it from the board and lightly sanded the contacts with fine sandpaper.
This involves removing the whole face from the main board and chassis. Not that bad, a couple screws and some ribbon jumpers and latches and it's off.
Next carefully pull the volume control straight off the shaft, remove the nut under it and lay it face down on a soft surface. Remove the screws that hold the circuit board to the face and slowley seperate the too, you'll have to release some latches also to sepperate them.
If you replace the volume control with a new one or clean the old one you have to go this far because it's soldered to the front side of the board. Yes, it has to be de-soldered from the board.
This control was not designed to be dissassembled but I was able to carefully open it and remove the shaft to totaly expose the contacts for a complete even couple of passes with the sandpaper.
I did have to use some 5-minute opoxy when I put it back together because I couldnt get the metal tabs to close as tightly as they were before it was opened.
I soldered in the volume control, put it back together and it's worked perfectly ever since. I don't know how much pioneer wants for a new one but I can tell you they wanted $69 plus shipping for a new remote for my receiver. And with this style of volume control you might be at their mercy as far as finding one from another source that fits.

I have Pioneer VSX-1027; the volume drops 3 digits every three minutes and it keeps dropping three digits every three minutes until it reaches to the minimum..! Why does this happen? How to fix it?


It is a problem with the temp sensor circuit. The unit thinks it is getting hot, so it is trying to turn the volume down to avoid overheating. You either has a bad thermal resistor on the amp board, or you need to change the cpu board. Best to have it looked at by a pro.

Most remote controlled volume pots are motorized. To be sure your remote isn't the culprit, set the volume and take the batteries out of the remote effectively killing it. If it still continues to fall off in volume, relocate the receiver to a different room to rule out environmental issues of it picking up a stray transmission from some other device. If all else fails take it to work if you can and see if it does it at a completely different location. If it still does it you'll have to take it to a shop for repair.

I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer


Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.

My pioneer pl-200 doesn't play loud enough through my pioneer vsx-521-k receiver


The PL-200 has no pre amp and your VSX-521 has no phono input. You need an RIAA preamp.

Your PC can be connected like any other digital or analog audio source within its sound connection capabilities to any compatible input on the VSX. Just make sure you enable the PC's audio outputs and raise the volume.
