In this instance a powersupply component may be shorted. Try leaving it unplugged for about 30 minutes and try again, if it still does it, then the powersupply will need replacing.

How do i use the SPDIF input? it is on a pioneer surround sound with a dvd player as part of the system

Any audio device that produces a digital output via spdif can feed the unit at that input.

For the future: speific model numbers are more helpful. We could refer to a specific manual.

If you don't have a manual, try

I have a Pioneer xv dv55 . My sub or speakers are not working!

I've had mine for nine (9) years and it fine, first make sure all coloured wire are connected to the sub correctly, press sys on your remote then press button 8 to test if the speakers are working then increase the volume to hear the spaekers. so to link TV audio/sound with DVD press sys then A-2 on the DVD remote, I hope these will solve ur problem?

First of all,if you are using rental dvds, there might be scratch which your dvd player might have an issue to read it;however,if you have tried many dvds in this player and you are having this issue, it is time to move on to another dvd player.
I recommend a Pioneer dvd player.

Pioneer dv 323

Zone is the region of your dvd player and what dvds its capable of playing. If you didnt know what you have done then its hard to know what could be wrong, first things first try this .. this is a factory reset that if you did change something important in the home menu it will fix it for you and start the system from the beginning when you first took it out of the box.

hope this helps mate.. if it doesnt email me back on here.

Resetting the system
Use this procedure to reset all system settings
to the factory default.
1 Switch the system into standby.
2 Press and hold the front panel

button for about 8 seconds until the
display shows ‘Mem.Clr.?’.
3 Press the front panel play/pause

All the system’s settings are now reset, and
you should see the ‘Let’s Get Started’ screen.

were you able to play copied dvd's on this unit ? if yes then check setting on the dvd menu for things like DVD REGION and DVD playback speed and types of DVD playable, this is quite likely as i ha this problem on a pioneer model previously.

do those copied dvds no longer play on the same unit ? and you have tried them again on another unit or dvd player ?

rather i suspect problems with the DVD burn itself and its compatibility with the dvd player you are palying them on now (asuming settings in DVD enu are correct as loosely outlined above in point 1)

it may be that if this is a new dvd player than the one you played them on before, the dvd's may have to be closed in a certain way using your burning software so that they are playable on standard dvd players.
please also check that region is not an issue and that the recording speed of the dvd (the rip speed) is not too high or too low for your unit, as this data is stored on the written dvd and is responsible for the quality of the palyback data.

You willneed to have this unit serviced I'm afraid. You have a laser assy problem, or one of three servo circuits are not working. That would be the focus, tracking or the spindle motor circuits. Good Luck

DVD is dead

Wow , with the unit sitting for two years, you could have all sorts of problems now. Most likely back when the unit stopped working, the spindle motor was bad, as that was the problem on almost all of these types of CD players. Now though, if the power supply capacitors are not shot, the laser assembly could also be bad. My best advice on this unit? Can it and start out with new equipment. Good Luck
