SOURCE: no sound from speakers after connecting to pioneer a/v vsx81

I had the same problem and resolved it last night. You'll also need to connect an audio cable (EVENTHOUGH YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO - to bad pioneer didn't fully implement the HDMI standard in this receiver) solution. I suggest using an Optical cable. This really annoyed me...see the manual on P.17 section #3.

SOURCE: Pioneer VSX 818V No Sound

First thing to check is the Speaker Select Switch. It will say, "A" "AB" or "Both" it will be displayed on the LCD screen as well. Second if that's ok, Check the "Direct" switch. If it's on, turn it off. Generally if it's on, you will see a blue light if it's on (most receiver's)

If you still have No audio, hook up your DVD to the "Direct" input and turn "Direct" on. If you have audio then. The DSP chip is probably bad and you should take it to a shop and have them bench it first to confirm. Hope this helps

SOURCE: I bought the receiver on

The resistance or load on the amp is not an influencing factor here. Generally most receivers will handle 4+ ohms with no problem.

Did not understand the cable plug comment do you mean you do not have banana plugs? those are a convenience item more than anything the red & black terminals accept wire up to 10awg you just need to make sure no wire is sticking out and touching the chassis or another terminal.

You did not state what your source was so start with something simple such as a cd player or ipod that has regular RCA cable connections on it.

Culprits could be a variety of things here is a short list

1. make sure the input is set to analog not digital this is done through the menu.

2. make sure the speaker selector is set to speaker A and that your speakers are connected to the right terminals ie: not to the surround or front B.

3. if there is a tape loop make sure its turned off

4. in the menu make sure that the input source is set to the correct input... for example on many receivers have SELECTABLE sources so if you push video 3 the menu may allow you to select audio from input 2, 1 source etc... If the previous owner messed with the changes a full reset may be in order.

5. make sure the surround sound is turned OFF

If none of this works then its probable that the receiver was sold due to the issue . could be a simple blown fuse or could be a bad board. Ifs its not showing proitect mode then its probably a software issue/ blown fuse.

re-read the auction then contact your seller if all fails then file a complaint with Paypal

SOURCE: xbox elite connected to TV

Hook your Xbox to tv via HDMI, then hook TV to reciever through digital optical or composite cables. If you try to get your picture through receiver first, you may get picture and sound but, sound may be delayed and picture might not be the best. Bettter to run through tv first then provide sound to receiver.

Lamp comes on briefly and then goes out

Check poewer connection
Check if fan filder is dirty ( if it is just hoover it out)
If "lamp" light on top of the projector blinks or stays lit - lamp probably faulty
How old is the Projector/lamp (average lamp life is around 2000-3000 hours)
