Sounds like a faulty volume encoder , just replace the part and it should fix the problem

SOURCE: receiver shuts off at times

Those recivers are usually preety good oones with little to no problems. Its just when it gets a certin age it extends its life. You can take it in to a technician to have it serviced, mostly you have cracked solders on the board which will accout for the problems you are having. there might be a few things that need changing but basically your recuver is good it just needs servicing thats all.
Or if you prefer you could get a new one.. BUT YOU CAN JUST HAVE THE CURRENT ONE YOU GOT SERVICED..

a service wil include
re-soldering cracked or loose solders on the board
changing a couple of stuff, maybe capicators or resistors and unlikely an ic.
dusting it

So just take it in to a technician for a service cause its reached it life span ,,

SOURCE: No output on main speakers

I have experienced a similar problem with my Sony STR-GX57ES and took it to a certified tech only to find it needed the power supply replaced. I opted to hunt down a compatible power supply but have been unsucessful thus far. That being said I picked up an STR-D665 for next to nothing and found the power supplies to be quite different (you would hope so any, with the ES meaning Elivated Standard and all) but with the D665 working flawlessly I'd rather have something working than nothing. Good luck!

SOURCE: Technics SA-DX950 surround sound problems

The most likely culprit here is the output protection relay. The contacts are a little corroded and the higher volume "jumps the gap" temporarily "cleaning" the contacts. The relay should be changed. I don't have the manual with me, but the following relays are in the unit. One of them is the speaker relay:

SOURCE: hear sound but cant get any real volume even at full blast

I was playing around with my Sherwood RD 6513 and adjust the the output level to its maximum, amongst other settings. This limited my output on the amp to a maximum volume of 65 not 90+.. Anyway i pluged in the microphone and done another 'auto setup' of the volume levels and distances, and this allowed the volume to exceed 65 again!

Also if you have an external source such as a DVD player - i would assume you have already checked its output volume setting?

Audio seems weak...how to increase volume


this is gotta be the largest complaint I hear from folks when they get a new flat screen , its not loud enough or the sound sounds muffled

flat screens are flat ! so theres no good way for mfg to put the speakers facing forward so sound has to hit the wall behind it first then gets directed forward to you ! (low/muffled)

sound bars help with this , but for true rich sound , id go with a video receiver amp combo , some of these even have built in dvd players , and arrange its speakers in a forward facing direction

I have a 22 year old Luxman receiver. The left speakers periodically turn off, but seem to recover if I really turn up the receiver volume. I did just reconnect the speaker wires in an attempt to fix the...


To be honest it sounds as though your volume control needs a clean, try to find some switch cleaner (servisol or similar) remove the casing and spray into the volume control from behind the face plate as apposed to from the front. Rotate the volume all the way back and forth several times to clean the tracks, I have used deodorant in the past to achieve the same result but as this will leave a residue, probably not recommended as a permanent fix. Obviously do these actions with the amp switched off, otherwise you will at the very least annoy your neighbours with the loud volume.

Hope this is helpful.

I have a pioneer vsx 5000 receiver everything comes on but no sound comes out is it easy to fix


Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead

Do you mean "db"?

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING. The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Turn the volume down.

While you're squinting at the front panel, find the manual and evaluate every indicator on the face to make sure you understand what they mean and how they might affect operations. Look for Speakers NOT enabled, Muting ON, a Tape or other input inadvertantly selected. If you fail to find the errant setting, treat it like a new install and set it up all over again according to the manual.

Iw-803 earthquake sound in wall speaker throws amp into protection mode at high volume.. removed all speaker components ( woofer, mid, tweet) and just hooked up crossover - still shots at high volume....


many amplifiers protect against a short and against an open. They are looking for speaker resistance within limits. Your wire to the speaker may be too long or too thin. You may have hooked up more than 1 speaker per output causing too low resistance. Keep your wires short as possible and use 12 or larger gauge wire if you are driving large wattage speakers. Check the ohm rating on your speakers and compare them with what the amplifier calls for. Hope this helps

parts.com but you can fix it with jbweld. just remove the plastic with metal piece that is stuck to the volume button ON the faceplate and place it back in the center of the volume button knob. mix both pastes together and apply it aroun the plastic center of the knob. Ps don't add inside the hole where it attaches to the face plate. just follow the directions behind the jbweld pack.
