I have taken my 1280 to Austin Stereo, they are honest , upfront, and guarantee their work. So impressed that I took a 1080 that two previous techs had butchered and they fixed it to like new specs.512-451-0408 is their #. They go out of their way to help those of us that are not well versed in techspeak. Both units sound superb with the big 15 inch Cerwin Vega speakers!!!

I am an amature audiophile, but I will try to help you.
This was one of Pioneer's top models way back when. As far as the popping noise, you could try tuner cleaner on the switches or buttons. Make sure you follow the directions on the can. And turn down the volume all the way when switching these buttons. This unit is probably jam packed with electronics so it might be hare to get to the switches. As far as the distortion. It could be that the coupling capacitors are dried out and may need replacing. It could also be a bad transistor. This is not a job for an amature. I would suggest looking in the yellow pages for a good hi-fi technician to do the job. Make sure you ask him the cost up front and what kind of warranty he (she) gives.

Bought a Pioneer SX580 receiver, everything lights up but can't get any sound


Do you know for sure that it works okay? i.e. did you hear it playing through speakers before you parted with your cash?

Have you checked for buttons that switch the speakers on/off (Speakers A/B A+B) or a manual mute button?

Power switch on my Pioneer SX-950 receiver is hard to move.


Buy some electronic contact cleaner in a spray can, attach straw, "unplug receiver" and spray the power button, you may have to remove to be more effective.

Turn on the sx 750 lites blink for 15 sec to 1 min


This is a common problem. The power switch is sparking internally. The contacts need to be burnished. This will extend the life of the switch. The switch itself is no longer available. If you are not comfortable repairing this, check with a shop that deals with vintage audio gear.

Pioneer SX-450 Power Flickering


The power switch needs to be replaced or the contacts cleaned/resurfaced.
As for the lights they probably need replacement also. Check for voltage on them (probably A/C but check for D/C also.

I just bought an old vintage pioneer sx 737 receiver and cannot get NO fm reception, and only 2 or 3 on am....HELP!!!!! I have used antennas as well...Charlie


Even with just a short wire, this model should be receiving a number of stations. Is there an IC inside marked LA7001 or something similar? If so, it is probably defective. This is a common failure. I'll look up your specific model later to confirm.

a little bit foolish thing: see if you have both the speaker channels (A and B) down. if you have both down it doesn't work - didn't for me.. and obviously make sure you have the right letter down - same outpout as your boxes
