My pioneer receiver powers on but the volume doesn't work. Why is that??

Does this receiver function as only a tuner or does it have speaker outputs? If it has speaker outputs, then there might be switches for turning them on and/or if 5.1 surround sound, sometimes there is a bridge on the back so extra amplification can be added and if that bridge is missing, the tuner signals are sent on to the internal amplifier. On one of mine, that bridge was a 2 wires bent to fit into RCA jacks on the rear of the unit.

Dear Sirs, I have a Pioneer AV Receiver model VSX-817 and is connected to Monitor Audio Speakers (Fronts: BR5, Center: BR-LCR, Rears: BR1), Sub: MS309 (Mordaunt Short). I have connected each front...

Did you remember to remove the shorting link on the MA BR5 speaker terminal ..When you biwire the speakers you should remember to loosen the speaker terminal nuts and remove the shorting link plate between the HF and the LF terminals or you will short the amplifiers two channels together through the link. And modern amplifiers will take a lot of abuse at low volumes but at high volumes the protection circuit will turn off the device.

How to install bose 901 eq to my pioneer vsx-1019ah-k

This works for all models of AV receivers when you want 901's as Front L&R speakers..

Get yourself a nice separate amp, draw the Front L&R pre-out signals from wherever you can find them. On many, there is a pre-amp out for every channel in case you want to run external amps for any channels. That is how my old Pioneer VSX-36TX is equipped. For others, you may have to borrow the signals from a typical Tape- or Adapter-Out RCA pair. Just remember, AV receivers disable digital inputs as soon as you switch in a Tape Monitor, so choose one you won't have to switch IN. The signal Out is always there regardless of the monitor state.

Patch the Active EQ directly off that point (Amp In from the receiver, Amp Out to the new amp). Run all the speaker level settings on the AV Receiver and rock on.

No sounds

Test one speakers at other amp to ensure its working. Amp is going into probable protection mode. Disconnected all speaker and av wires (only power) turn up volume and see if it stays on. If not sounboard or volume function faulty. If on, connect one speaker L or R. Go to tuner mode to tuned radio station an listen for sounds. If sound connect speakers and av cables one by one and test each one on its own until amp switches off, or no volume. Investigate from there were prolem is.

No audio output from Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver

If it's under warranty..get a new one.
It's an internal breakdown service only.

My speakers arn't working with my new t.v.

Any sound from other sources ie. a CD/DVD unit, Tuner etc.? If so then the issue is the signal path fron the TV to receiver, What cableing do you have from TV audio output? Try standard analog 2 channel to the receiver tv in, be sure you select TV on the receiver mode,also check the TV sound menu options, some require that you disable TV speakers and use the audio line-out option fixed or variable.

Owner's Manual - Pioneer VSX 455 Receiver

It should be compatible with all of them. I have one that works just fine with my Sony HD/TV, HD DVD PLAYER, etc. The only difference is that its is stereo w/ a middle speaker hook up, if you so desire.

I find it just as enjoyable and easy to use as my Denon 6.1 with fewer speakers. That is because as men, our hearing range is poorer especially as we grow older.

Email me with any other concerns you may have.
