It keeps turning off eventhough the back switch is turned on


You need to determine if its a malfunction of the sub or just due to a loss of input. And is it always in response to, say, over-enthusiastic use?

From the manual...

TROUBLESHOOTING

If you used the high-level (speaker) inputs and there is no sound from any of the

speakers:

• Check that receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.

• Check that powered subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and is switched on.

• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and speakers. Make sure all wires

are connected. Make sure none of the speaker wires are frayed, cut or punctured.

• Review proper operation of your receiver/amplifier.

If there is low (or no) bass output:

• Make sure the connections to the left and right "Speaker Inputs" have the correct polarity (+ and -).

• Make sure that the subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and switched on.

• Adjust the crossover point.

• Flip the Phase Control switch to the opposite position.

• If you are using a Dolby Digital/DTS receiver or processor, make sure that the

subwoofer adjustments on the receiver/processor are set up correctly.

• Slowly turn the Level Control clockwise until you begin to hear the desired amount of bass.

If you used the line-level inputs and there is no sound from the subwoofer:

• Check that receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.

• Check that powered subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and is switched on.

• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and subwoofer.

Make sure all wires are connected. Make sure none of the wires are frayed, cut or punctured.

• Review proper operation of your receiver/amplifier.

• Slowly turn the Level Control clockwise until you begin to hear the desired amount of bass.

• Make sure that you have configured your receiver/processor so that the subwoofer/LFE output is on.

Where in the receiver would I plug an active subwoofer which requires RCA left and right input.


you plug it into the "Subwoofer Out" on the Pioneer and either the left or right RCA input on your Sub. You do not need to plug something into both.

Where to connect subwoofer


The subwoofer has its own RCA output on the back of the receiver and needs to be plugged by RCA cable from the receiver to the sub. This would be for an "active subwoofer" with its own amplifier and crossover that needs to be plugged into the wall.

There is no sound coming out of the subwoofer


I assume it's an active subwoofer, since it hums. Did you activate sub in the receiver menu? Did you turn up the volume on the sub?

The fuse keep burning


Somethings shorted inside. Could be the output IC or transistor, diod in power supply, power transformer. Somebody will have to open it up to find out.
It could be a cheap fix like a couple $4 transistors or it could be expensive, like a

Pioneer audio/video receiver damaged


Hi...
The problem is probably that the bad connection "took out" a couple of the power transistors/power mods in the amplifier

If you need a pro to fix it I can suggest someone depending on where you live

There is no headphone plugged in the tv speakers wont work


Hello

I had the same problem with my computer, where there was no sound because it showed that there was earphones plugged in.

The problem was the the earphone unit on my front USB pannel was a bit worn out, so it shoted out. I just took it to a repair shop and an hour later all was fixed up perfectly for very cheap.You should maybe try it. Please rate if this worked for you.

Best regards

My d52w14 wont turn on at all anymore it got unplugged from the wall and when i plugged it back in there was a pop and i saw the electricity between the socket and the tv. the green light doesnt come on...


you have shortcircutted a fuse either on the plug or internally

its a quick and cheap fix should be less than £50

unless you have damaged some other stuff in it but you shouldnt have unless it was faulty and the fuse wasnt working properly

it works like the circut breakers in your house but the fuse needs to be changed everytime it is activated

No sound


1. Verify unit is plugged in and power outlet used is active.
2. Is power switch on?
3. Is auto turn on/off set properly?
4. Is unit receiving an input signal from your source?
5. Have all controls on subwoofer (volume, crossover, phase, etc.) been
properly set?
6. If unit has been running at high levels, one of the protection circuits may be engaged.
7. Has the built-in amplifier overheated?
