First make sure the speaker A/B switch is on.
If still no sound, dissconect ALL speakers from the rear of amp.
Now turn on amp and listen for the relays to click in.
One relay will click when you press power. A couple of seconds later, the speaker relay will click in.
If it does, you could have blown outputs, bad speaker wiring, faulty speakers.
If it does not, the speaker relay may be faulty.
Hope this helps.

My pioneer vsx-324 cuts out for a couple of seconds and the sound switches to output via the tv instead of the receiver speakers when the video returns. I have to reset to get sound through receiver.


This could be a problem with one (or more) of the built in amplifiers, but first check if all the speaker cables are properly twisted and connected to their posts. There shouldn't be any loose cores that can touch the chassis of the receiver, because this causes a short circuit and makes the receiver go into safety mode (at which it shuts off). Also check the interlinks of the affected source to be sure you don't have some kind of signal loss/interruption.
If this doesn't help or obviously isn't the problem, you should have the receiver checked at a repair centre.

I have a Pioneer VSX D412 S receiver with my Pioneer surround sound system The system SUDDENLY STOPPED RECEIVING SOUND SIGNAL FROM MY HD TV


  1. Turn the TV and receiver off and back on. This is called "power cycling" the devices.
  2. Check the menu settings to make certain the TV is still sending a sound signal out to the receiver.
  3. Disconnect the cable, blow both ends out, reconnect, and see if the cable was partially disconnected or has dust or lint interfering with the connections.
  4. Change the cable for another cable that you know to be working.
  5. Use a different source for the TV: DVD, Cable, different channel, etc.
  6. Connect the receiver to another TV.

I get a red light on the back panel labeled power. No green light. I don't think the PV 600 is working but when I run the channel check through my Pioneer THX receiver I hear sound. Any thoughts?


The PV600 and PV400 have auto-on circuitry that turns the subwoofer on when a signal is presented, and turns off if no signal is detected for 15 minutes.

Not knowing which Pioneer receiver you have I have dropped in the steps for No Sound from Subwoofer:

• Check that the subwoofer is connected properly, switched on and the volume turned up.

• If your subwoofer has a sleep function, make sure it is switched off.

• Make sure that the Subwoofer setting is YES or PLUS (see Speaker Setting on page xx).

• The crossover frequency may be set too low; try setting it higher to match the characteristics of your other speakers (see Speaker Setting on page xx)

• If there is very little low frequency information in the source material, change your speaker settings to Front: SMALL / Subwoofer: YES , or Front: LARGE / Subwoofer: PLUS (see Speaker Setting on page xx).

• Check that the LFE channel is not set to -80dB , or a very quiet setting (see Bass Peak Level

on page xx).

• Check the speaker level settings (see Channel Level on page xx).

Regarding the Large vs Small assignment of speakers, what they mean isn't so much the physical size but the ability to handle real bass. Large if Yes.

Analog is cutting in and out while channel isn't being changed. Also, channels in analog have no sound at all. I tried to switch signal select to auto and the problem continues. what should I try next?


If you're only using analog audio, switch the signal selection to manual or analog.

If the source(s) that do this are primarily digital and they experience any problems the unit will want to dynamically switch to its analog path. If there's no analog path connected from the same device(s) you'll get silence every time it switches to analog. Observe the display when the problem occurs.

Center Channel not working on pioneer vsx-d608


Be sure the sound source has a center channel output ie. not a 2 channel source only, try the test tone setup for 5 or 6 channel balance, if no sound from the center channel still then it is looking like maybe the center channel is blown.

Sound Just Stopped Working


I have the same problem with my 49txi, and I called pioneer and a repair shop as well. Both told me that the 49txi has a known problem with over heating and that its boards unsolder themselves. I would have thought Pioneer would stand behind something this expensive, but that was the old Pioneer in the 80s, and the new Pioneer says we are on our own.

Overload


Ok, how much is "a bit"? If you are operating your unit at the 50% or more level, your unit is working as it should, as DVD and CD players output more signal than other sources...accordianman

Pioneer Inno


Rick,

You can connect the inno via the home doc and the provided cable in the home kit. You may have to connect to an unused component on the receiveer (VCR comes to mind)...You move the VCR source on your receiver and you should be good to go.. I have a Pioneer Elite receiver but Pioneer makes no cable to connect those two ..no matter... I wanted to control the Inno from outside the receiver's controls..

Cant save settings in Pioneer cd player DEH-P55BT car cd player


The constant power (yellow wire) needs to be connected to an unswitched +12V source. It sounds like that's either unconnected or you've connected it to a switched power source.

HDMI Compatibility


It sounds to me like you have a HDMI Control issue. It sounds like the DVD player wants to control the receiver. Try turning off hdmi control on the TV, reciever, and the dvd player in their setup menus.


Let me know if this helped,
