Pioneer VSC-D1S A/V receiver

I have a Pioneer VSC-D1S A/V receiver. The relay that disconnects the speakers at powerup does not reconnect the speakers. I have the service manual, but need some guideance as to where I should begin to look.

    That should read VSX, not VSC.

Pioneer vsx-518-k does not want to come out of standby


Try disconnecting all the cables from the back, including the speakers. Sometimes a short develops on an output stage. If the unit stays on, reconnect one input/output at a time, turning the unit off during the reconnection, to isolate the problem. If it does not stay on, it's an internal problem, requiring a service call.

Pioneer receiver overload


The "Overload" message usually involves the speakers or the speaker wires. Disconnect the speaker wires and make sure that they aren't frayed or damaged. (When you reconnect them, make sure that no loose wire touches the receiver case, speaker or another wire.) Replace any damaged wire. Make sure that none of your speakers have a lower impedance than the receiver can handle. (Most Pioneer systems have a 8 ohm limit.)

If the message persists, turn off the system. Disconnect one speaker at a time and try turning on the receiver and turning up the volume. If the error disappears when one speaker is removed, that speaker may be damaged and needs to be serviced. Do not reconnect the speaker to the receiver until it is fixed.

I hope this helps.

Receiver is cutting on and off by itself


It is the power control relay that do the cutting OFF and turning On.

these relay is driven by a processor via transistor output.


• One will have to check circuits that accompanies with it.

• Have a plan , prepare tools and equipments

should you need to DIY.

• While having a plan, disconnect all speakers and reconnect later

one at a time if it turns On properly without the speakers.

My Pioneer VSX-D1S A/V receiver will not power on; this began yesterday. Pressing the power button results in only a clicking sound along with the standby LED turning on. The owner's manual states to press...


Unit is pretty old I had one of these back in 98-99.

Time to upgrade a service tech is going to cost you $150 just to open it up and figure out whats bad.

Pioneer ok but check out Denon's line of receivers Onkyo is good too but they have a high rate of repairs

Pioneer doesn't make them like they used to that D1S was a tank, had tons of audio / video inputs was one of the first with video upconverting had lots of power and a great front display panel. BUT technology has come along way and pioneer hasn't kept up. They even stopped making high end TV's a few years ago even though they were regarded as the best sets out there.

check this out
Denon AVR-4310CIgoogle it they sell for ALOT less than sticker I bought one for $1299 with a 5 year warranty

Hope that helps

Error 71 an the reciever shuts down


You have a speaker short. Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver, then turn it back on to test. If you don't get the error code, your receiver is still ok. Reconnect your speaker wires one by one and test the power on the receiver until you find the wire that's causing the problem. Then disconnect that wire at the speaker and test again, this will determine if you have a bad wire or a bad speaker. If the receiver still reads error without speakers attatched, you will need to send it for service. While it's at service, check all wires and speakers for shorts with a meter if you can. This is the most common failure of all receivers, a shorted wire. Hope this helps

OVERLOAD


HOW MANY SPEAKERS ARE YOU RUNNING? IF you are running more than TWO speakers, the very FIRST thing to check is to make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: Some Pioneer equipment have internal overload protection systems to prevent permanent damage. However, you cannot re-set these systems yourself. Your dealer or authorized HK service center must do this.] But, before you take your unit in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. Visually inspect connections at the receiver and speakers first. You might find something obvious! If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the right front, test the system,and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Hopefully one of these "fixes" will work for you. GOOD LUCK!

Clark, you MIGHT have a simple problem here. Let's keep our fingers crossed... This problem generally has more to do with the speaker WIRES or their IMPEDENCE than anything else, even though the receiver displays "AMP ERR." (Technically, it IS an amp error, but the source MAY not be the amp!) The very FIRST thing we need to do is check to make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. (Pioneer says 6, but that's not necessarily a good recommendation, particularly if you listen LOUD.) Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: Your receiver has internal overload protection systems to prevent permanent damage. On SOME Pioneer models, these can be "reset" but you can't do it yourself. Your dealer or authorized service center must do so.] But, before you take it in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. 1) Visually inspect connections at the receiver AND speakers. You might find something obvious! Look for bare wires touching one another. Again, you must look both at the receiver, AND at the speakers. 2) If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers at the receiver; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the right front, test the system, and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Hopefully one of these simple fixes will get you up-and-running. Good luck!
