Question about Home Theater Systems

1 Answer

Pioneer VSX-D903S For the life of me, I can't figure this out. My Pioneer VSX-D903S tunes in AM stations in increments of 9. I am trying to pull in AM 740 out of Toronto, Canada but the tuner only tunes to AM 738. If I try to dial the multi-jog, the next AM station that comes up is AM 747. I have taken the receiver off of station call. I have read every page of the manual, but can't find an answer. I tried pushing just about every button to try to tune by increments of '1' , but have been unsuccessful. I have emailed Pioneer, but have never received an answer. Other than that, I love the receiver. I bought it off a friend who wanted to buy something else. Can anyone help? Thanks, Nick

    I will double check, but I don't think this is the international model. I think this one was sold in the USA.

  • Nick Carlo Mar 01, 2008

    Accordianman, you pointed me in the right direction. This is an international unit. I have reset the deemphasis switch and unit seems to be better, but I have another question for you. The unit is set for 110VAC but I have 118VAC coming out of the socket. (I checked with a digital VOM). Should I reset the unit for 120-127 Volts? Unit seems to have been operating okay. Please advise.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Thankyou very much Accordianman. Like I said, I bought the unit from a friend who must have been in the service. The unit was set for 110VAC and was being used this way. It doesn't appear to be harmed. However, I have moved the switch to 120-127 VAC.

What country did this set come from?

Posted on Feb 29, 2008

  • Michael Borelli Feb 29, 2008

    I just need to know what country this was made for....accordianman

  • Michael Borelli Mar 01, 2008

    Okay! This set was apparently set up for use in Europe, according to what you've described to me. The fix for the AM/FM tuning increments(whic is what you call this feature) will be found in the Pioneer service manual under "procedures". There typically is a jumper or solder bridge that needs to be moved/ established in at least one section of the MPU.

    Voltage selection needs to be set to the greater range to help prevent input transformer failure....accordianman

I have a pioneer home theater HTZ585 DVD system. Since yesterday, i get 'SUB COM' message displayed (blinking) and nothing seems to work anymore. Any suggestions?


I can't find that message in the manual but I would guess it's trying to tell you something is wrong going out to the subwoofer. Trace the wiring. If you don't see anything wrong, disconnect the sub and see if the message disappears or changes.

I have the VSX-1019AH-k Pioneer receiver and i want to increase the bass. When i go to setup for the speakers the SW option is grayed out so i can't put it to plus. Help?


I'm referencing a VSX-1016 manual, so I hope it's close enough to help you find the function...

Somewhere in the System Setup menu you'll find a setting for SUB W. The wrong setting is NO.

Set it to YES or PLUS depending on if you want ONLY the Sub to carry all the bass, or if the Front Speakers will share bass with the Sub, respectively.

Pioneer vsx 3000 plays fine, but the radio function hums


Hello,
If memory serves correct, the VSX-3000 is from the late 80's. They are good receivers from that era. From your description, it appears the tuner module could have issues, since only the AM/FM has a hum. If all other inputs sound well, it points the the tuner module. These modules are not easy to repair (PCB with SMD highly tuned parts), and are easiest and cheapest to replace. Many VSX models of that vintage use the same part. Not sure how easy it would be to find one. They are a small PCB enclosed mostly in a silver shielding, with one or two connectors from the inside and screwed to the back of the receiver, where the antena connection is.
Good luck
