Re: Remote

The remote sensor assembly on the front panel of the amp will need to be replaced. It is the small tin shielded box with 3 wires connecting to it(behind the remote sensor window). Check that the sensor has still has 5 volts to it before removing. Some models have a 5 v reg IC on the front panel to run the sensor

I bought a used Pioneer VSX 50 receiver and it did not come with the remote My old remote is not pairing with it. How do I get them to work together?

Hi Pamela,
if the old remote is not for the same make and is not one of those multi remotes that can now be bought then it will not work with the pioneer VSX or if it is from another Pioneer VSX then it may need to have the code re entered by Pioneer.

I would suggest to go to a shop that sels equipment of the same kind and ask for their advice and also whether they do multi controllers that would work, a shop such as Maplin (if you have a Maplin store where you live as they can be very helpful with such problems).

Pioneer elite receiver has to be turned on manually

Only just a few causes for that. Either the remote is bad(check the batteries first) the Infra Red receiver in the receiver itself is bad, or there is a loss of communication between the Infra Red receiver, and the display microprocessor(one of the computers in your receiver). There are some less than accurate tests for your remote on the Internet to rule that out. I use equipment a bit more sophisticated than that. If you still have questions, please visit my website at You may contact me there. Thank you.

I need the remote code for a pioneer vsx502 receiver for att uverse remote

I used 5120 to turn off and on the receiver on the Aux button, I am also control the volume on the recevied by assigning the volume control using 955 code. The one thing I lack is a way to change the receiver input between BD, HDMI1, HDMI2, etc. I still have to go to the Receiver remote for that. I know the Uverse Receiver can't do everything, but if I could just get the input to change on the UVerse Remote, it would be awesome. I'm trying to avoid getting a Harmony. The blu-ray and tv also work, which is great! See this reference for the silver remote:
If you have black, you may need to visit the AT&T support site to get the black manual.

Does pioneer model vsx 403 come with a remote control? If so how can you relace it?

I have the same unit. It does come with a remote. The original remote is pretty much impossible to find. But also there are some companies that sell remotes for it. Google Pioneer VSX403 remote replacement. I have yet to get a remote :D
Good Luck.

Problems with Sharp Blu Ray Player "copy protected signal"

Possible solution: You set up your remote to run your amp from the TV control, using the AQUOS Link. Even though your amp is out of the loop, it's still recognized by the TV. You might have to reset the TV back to default and run the AQUOS Link again.

Pioneer receiver sx-315

With persistence, I was able to program the Universal Remote Control provided with the cable box to control my new used Pioneer SX-315 receiver. I now can control the tv volume, cable box, auxiliary stereo receiver with speaker system with one remote. Thank goodness I did not have to resort to buying a Pioneer remote control.

I was able to program another previously unused universal remote which I purchased several years ago. However, since the other remote control did not list the Vizio TV. That brand is too new for the remote.
