Question about Pioneer VSX-D409

2 Answers

The volume control on the receiver is not working anymore. If I turn the knob to lower the volume, the volume increases. The overall response to the knob turning is erratic. A friend told me the pulse gauge/detector (whatever the name is in English) for the volume knob had malfunctioned and that it is pretty common.

If you can find a replacement part, replace it. it's possible that the sliding carbon has worn out

It has a rotary encoder, not a carbon surfaced potentiometer. Anyway, you have to clean the surfaces of that encoder, but it's hard. You have to desolder it from the pcb, take it apart and probably you won't be able to assemble the rotary encoder again. :-) But it worth to try.

Kenwood KA 995 amp. volume control, as you increase or decrease the sound, a loud clicking sound is heard.


Katrina, this sounds like a dirty potentiometer (volume control knob). Try turning the unit off, and exercising the knob. That means turn it full turns, many times, like 70 times. Then try it again with power. Sometimes this helps.

Cleaning the contacts may help. The volume knob should pull off. Once its off use a non-flammable contact cleaning spray to clean the contacts behind the knob.

Electronics and automotive stores should have this.

Volume knob does not work


the radio has to be replaced or sent out to get fixed. there is no easy fix to this problem.the knob is shot. (sometimes you can get the vol to move if you wiggle and push and play with the knob)You are better off replacing the radio with a nice aftermarket one.

Volume increases to 30 can't turn down


I don't have a solution but if you take off the speaker grille on the front of the set and see two ribbonish cables, unplug the smaller one. The volume will not increase anymore but you cannot use the controls on the front of the tv and the power light will not show green anymore. You can however use the remote to do everything on the set that you would normally do. Hope this helps until I find a real solution.

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.

Yamaha RX-V800 volume knob on receiver not working.


It sounds like the volume control pod has gone bad and needs replaced (The knob shaft connects to the pod main body and the inside of the volume pod is what controls the rate of volume,If the inside becomes worn ,broken or dirty the volume will become erratic) Replace volume pod ! ..You may try cleaning by taking off the volume knob and getting a can of pressure air and blowing the dust out!
Please rate response!!

Volume control


Well here goes a spelling problem for me. You need to replace a component called a podentiomiter. It is the actual volume control behind the knob. I have had to replace a few of these, and pioneer seems to to more prone to these problems.

Pioneer VSX-D409 - Remote Control Problem Hello. I'm from Brazil and I have a 12 years old Pioneer VSX-D409 Receiver. My problem is related to the page 16 and 17 of the Owner's Manual. I'm trying to do the steps to Set up the surround mode, changing some settings and the type of connection I use to delivers sound to receiver, using optical cables. Well... I just cannot enter this mode, the surround setting mode. At this moment I'm hearing the sound from a FM station on the speakers. But just this function works. Tuner, wiht FM station. The remote control works only to: - Turn on or off the receiver. - Change the volume level. - Set the loudness function (on or off). - Change the function of the receiver (to select Tuner, DVD, TV or other device in, but I don't gain access to change some specs like distance, speakers volume levels or type of connection of each device). And nothing more. The remote control has seven buttons on the top: DVD/LD, TV/SAT, VCR/DVR, CD, TUNER, CD-R/TAPE/MD and TV CONT. According to the source device you want to use, you just press the button and the receiver selects the IN connection (coaxial or optical or just the Tuner to listen FM stations) and reproduces the audio. Until last week, anytime I press this button, the source device was selected. But, of course, I didn't use all of them. Just two: TV SAT and DVD. Why? This receiver has two optical IN units on its backside. I have two optical cables connected in the receiver. Optical 1 is connected to a PS3 and Optical 2 is connected to a SmarTV. Before my hollyday's trip, all the connections were allright. But not today!! The problem is: I do not have access to the process to change the type of connection that is assigned to the device I've choosen. I want to do this: TV/SAT --> OPT1 (to the audio from PS3); DVD --> OPT2 (to the audio from Smartv); The process is described at the page 16 to 21 of the owner's manual. But, it doesn't starts. Seems my remote control just forgeted how to do this or is blocked in another function. I don't know how to fix it and need some tip or help. Thank You! :)
