I own a pioneer vsx-5300 that I bought brand new twenty some years ago..1987? It has been absolutely wonderful to me. I love it and can't believe how even today fits in with modern technology. Never had a problem..ever and now, I get no sound from the unit. Tried, a speakers/b speakers, rear speakers, muting button, plug and unplugg, switching the speakers and nothing. Any advice/assistance? Thank you in advance for your assistance. James J. O'Neill Newtown, Pa
Sounds like an internal problem.
By chance were you running speakers on the "a" and "b" front channels at the same time? If so...over time this load can be too great and eventually wear out or overload the channels inside of the receiver. If not, could be something else internal, or possibly worn out of the age of the receiver.
Hope this helps.

Having a live-and-kicking VSX-36TX receiver which I love, I feel for you. But the prices have come down dramatically since we bought them. I paid $1200 for mine new. If I needed to replace it I would go with a used one from eBay and consider searching specifically for one that uses the same remote but doesn't have one included. The price would be low.
Hi Glen. The thing with these new units is that they are so fussy when it comes to frequency range on the speakers. The frequency has to be within the range that the amplifier specifies, or you'll have problems. I suggest that you check your manual to see what the required frequency shuold be and take it from there. I have one myself and love Pioneer
All you have to do is go to Pioneer's USA site and get the PDF file for the manual. You may need to Google search to find that link (just search on model no. and look for Pioneer site link) as it is a retired model. I just purchased one from BB but it was complete.
You could call this number to see if you can get a remote control for it. (905) 479-4411

Otherwise, you could buy a universal remote control, they're really cheap, and google 'universal remote codes' and you'll find lists of numbers that you input into the u.r.control, listed by brand, so just look for the Pioneer ones under 'Receivers'.
