Question about Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver

1 Answer

Overload Problem I recently purchased a new pair of Polk RM101 front speakers to go with my Polk RC80i rear speakers that I want to hook up to my Pioneer VSX-D608 reciever. I connected the wiring for 1 of the front speakers to the connection on the rear of the receiver and recieved an 'overload' message and the reciever shut down with seconds. This only happened when I increased the volume of the music (FM station). I detached the wire from the speaker and received the same message when I turned up the volume. At that point I thought it could not be the speaker. When I see overload I think I'm going to burn something up (speakers or receiver). Can you help me with my problem

    I get the "overload" message as soon as I turn on my VSX-D608 receiver. It just keeps flashing on the screen, and I don't have anything hooked up to it at all. What could cause this?

If your rec'vr worked with the original front and rear speakers, the new speakers are either defective or ar the wrong impedance.
Also, I find this confusing: "I connected the wiring for 1 of the front speakers to the connection on the rear of the receiver". This may indicate wrong wiring connection. Make sure you have connected the speakers properly

Pioneer VSX-D608 Optical connection

The manual states that the default association of each digital input in as follows:
  • Optical 1: CD
  • Optical 2: MD
  • Optical 3: TV
  • Coax: DVD
Use the "Signal select" button to set the receiver to use a digital input, and the Dolby/DTS button (above "Signal select") to enable decoding.

As samz11 stated above, a remote is required to alter the digital input mapping.

I turn on receiver Pioneer vsx d608, then few seconds later screen flashes "poweroff", then shuts off by itself

Check all speaker wiring for shorts. If nothing is found, unit obviously has circuit problems, have serviced.

Depends on what you have it hooked up to. Check wiring and controls if it is self powered. Check receiver/amp to see if it is outputting to subw.

When I had problems with my VSX-D608, I resorted to downloading the manual for VSX21. This model seems to have the same features in the ELITE form. It has helped me figure out some speaker problems.
