Question about Audio Players & Recorders

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.

    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?

    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

PIONEER VSX-D903S - A/V Receiver
PIONEER CU-VSX079 - Remote


Here's the basics: Make sure your receiver is in the Tuner mode, by selecting Tuner on either the remote (grey button), on the receiver, or from the GUI menu. (The display will also show TUNER.) There are a couple of different ways to tune a station. One method is with the remote. Use the Band button on the remote (or via the GUI display), or the FM/AM button on the receiver, to select the frequency type. Use the Freq/Ch buttons on the remote to tune, the number buttons for presets (30 presets total. Examples: Preset 5, simply press 5; Preset 15, enter 5-5; Preset 25, enter 5-5-5). You can also use the on-screen GUI menu and the remote to tune stations, using the lower grey buttons. If you want to tune directly, via the receiver, press Select, to switch between frequency tuning and presets (displays ST CALL) mode. Use the Multi-Jog dial to make your selection in either mode. The easiest way to program a station into a preset is to use the onscreen GUI menu. [NOTE: The GUI mode (TV Monitor Video Out, composite video) is active when an amber (orange) ring glows around the Multi-Jog dial (the GUI button on the receiver will also glow simultaneously). Use the remote lower grey buttons, or use the Multi-Jog dial and Select, to move the cursor and select commands on the TV. This A/V Receiver handles composite video/S-video, and Stereo/Dolby 3-Channel/Dolby Pro-Logic audio only. (Pre-ATSC/HD video, Pre-Dolby Digital/DTS multi-channel surround audio)]

How do i connect a sub wooferto my reciever


I own 2 of these Pioneer VSX-D903S units.

The only way to hook a powered subwoofer up to a VSX-D903S is if your subwoofer is equipped with amplified/speaker level terminals on the back, in addition to the line-level input. If you only have a line-level input, do not attempt to hook it up to this receiver.

If you're lucky, and have speaker-level inputs on your powered subwoofer, you would use the amplified terminals (connect to B-channel on the receiver). DO NOT connect anything to the line-level connection.

Alternatively, you could build two unpowered subwoofers, then set the receiver's Impedance switch to LOW, then connect one enclosure to each of the "B-channel" outputs. Connect your regular left and right speakers to their corresponding "A-channel" outputs. [Impedance range: 4 Ohm minimum, 16 Ohm Maximum]

Pioneer VSX D903S ...HOW do i adjust the rear speaker volume....it is currently much too low


You make surround channel adjustments using the on-screen GUI interface. This can be done either by using the remote (recommended), or by using the appropriate controls on the receiver. [The GUI mode is active when the GUI button and the ring surrounding the Multi-Jog dial is glowing amber.]

The phono works, but i get no sound when tuner on


This usually means that the tuner is not getting sufficient reception for the station you are trying to listen to.

Receivers come with cheap wire loop antennas try upgrading to a powered FM antenna available online or at your local Radio Shack.

Hope that helps

Have a pioneer VSX-D603S and just added bose 100 watt speakers. As i turn up the volume the speakers keep cutting out. Not very loud before it cuts out. What can I do?


What model of Bose, how connected on what channels? Do you know the impedance? If they came from one of their all-in-one systems you're playing with fire (almost literally) mixing them with non-Bose amplifiers.

I'd like to know where the vcr cable & cable wire from wall


(I own 2 VSX-D903S Units.)

There are NO optical (Toslink) or coaxial connections for Satellite or Cable-TV on this Pioneer unit.

The coaxial connector on the receiver is for connection to an external antenna for FM Tuner (radio) reception only.

Your cable line from the wall would go to your Cable Box, or a "cable-ready" TV or VCR. You would then connect the composite (YLR) or S-video output A/V (S+LR) connection to the VCR 1 input on the back of the receiver. Connect your TV L/R audio and S-video or Composite video output to the TV in connection on the Receiver. (Connect the Composite TV-out connection to a composite video-in connection on the TV.)
