Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

My Pioneer VSX-D711 occassionally has a very loud thumping in all the speakers when changing TV channels, while playing DVD, or watching online content (when it hic-cups).

It will not stop until I turn the receiver off and back on. It is ruining my speakers.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: Pioneer VSX-D411 receiver "Amp Error" message

Hello,
Unfortunatelly your receiver has failed. The front panel is telling you one of the power modules is probably bad. Not an DIY type of repair. These parts are near $40.00, plus cost of replacing.
Look at options to replace your trusted receiver with a new one.
Good luck

SOURCE: 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.

I have the VSX-D711 receiver and recently added a new DVD player and re-ran the speaker wires. Since this change I have developed a new problem, after about an hour the receiver shuts down.


The problem sounds like the amplifier shutting down in protect mode. This can be due to a shorted speaker cable, or even a speaker that may be run out of phase, or too much load on one channel of the amplifier.
First check and make sure there are no cables that may be exposed and rubbing against each other. That will cause a short.
Secondly try re running and testing each speaker line as you go individually. While you are rehooking the cables up, make sure that you + and - are in the correct terminals on the speaker and the receiver's speaker outputs. Also make sure you are not running more of a load on the receiver than it can handle such as running multiple speakers on the same output. This will cause the amp to shut down. Only run a load (8ohm, 4 ohm etc..) that the receiver speaker output can handle Two 8 ohm speakers make a 4 ohm load thus making it harder for the receiver to work, and then it overheats and shuts down. Good Luck

Have a pioneer VSX-D603S and just added bose 100 watt speakers. As i turn up the volume the speakers keep cutting out. Not very loud before it cuts out. What can I do?


What model of Bose, how connected on what channels? Do you know the impedance? If they came from one of their all-in-one systems you're playing with fire (almost literally) mixing them with non-Bose amplifiers.

No sound of voice, only surround sound


If you do not have a center channel speaker connected, then in the reciever setup menu for speakers, there should be a selection for center channel that says something like either yes or no. I'm guessing it says yes. Then you need to select "no" so that the circuitry will direct sound specified for the center channel to be reproduced through your front speakers.
