Pioneer vsx 3000 plays fine, but the radio function hums

When you power on the unit everything sounds good, but when you play the radio either fm or am the unit has a hum sound of some sort. What board, or resister would cause this to happen. All of the input audio sounds great.

P.S this unit is also supposed to be New Old Stock and bought it on ebay. It does apper brand new from the inside out.

    I had not yet time to look at the tuner, but while listening to a good input the sound just like stopped all together. How do you reset this unit to restore the sound? Any help would be greatly wonderful.

Hello,
If memory serves correct, the VSX-3000 is from the late 80's. They are good receivers from that era. From your description, it appears the tuner module could have issues, since only the AM/FM has a hum. If all other inputs sound well, it points the the tuner module. These modules are not easy to repair (PCB with SMD highly tuned parts), and are easiest and cheapest to replace. Many VSX models of that vintage use the same part. Not sure how easy it would be to find one. They are a small PCB enclosed mostly in a silver shielding, with one or two connectors from the inside and screwed to the back of the receiver, where the antena connection is.
Good luck

I HAVE A NEW PIONEER AVIC-710BT THE AM/FM WORKS FINE HOWEVER WHEN I INSERT A CD NO SOUND FROM THE SPEAKERS


chances are, you hooked up the wrong blue wire... the power antenna wire (blue) is hooked up to the amp turn on wire... so while the radio is on its sending the signal to the amp to play and when the cd player is on it shut off... swap the blue wires and everything should be dandy...

I have a pioneer elite vsx 36tx receiver that quit working. When I turn it on it just hums. It seems like a power supply but not sure.


I have the same receiver.

Do you mean there is an audible hum from the unit, or that speaker output(s) hum?

Let's figure out what DOES work...

Do you get the audible relay click a few seconds after power up?

Does it tune FM?

Can you get the On Screen Display? Settings all ok?

What preceded this? RSVP.

Will not tune any radio station, fm or am. everything else works fine. May be damage resulting from lightning, through the antena input.


It is very possible the fm tuner pack is damaged from lighting,if you have voltage going to the fm tuner pack im sure your tuner is bad pioneer part number for your tuner is AXQ7231

Won't power up; push power button on, hear click in back left of unti, get nothing on front display and no output from speakers; as if unit trying to operate


Disconnect the speakers and see what happens. Carefully examine the speaker cables for unwanted connections (shorts).
Take a clue from when the power problem appeared. Something was moved and made the buzz a (probable) dead short.

Reciever only allows 2 channels(speakers) at a time.


If the amplifier is not receiving a surround sound signal, you will get nothing from the rear speakers and probably nothing from the front centre. Play a dvd in dolby surround and it will work.

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

All you have to do is connect the coaxial out from pc to any audio i/p at the back of vsx d512.but ensure you select the right channel to play the audio ( eg. tape i/p select tape at front control, aux i/p select the aux at front control )
