Hi rp

You can get parts in the US direct from Pioneer. I have done a search for you and there is a parts list that mentions several vol controls. Click here

They have no stock however, and supply may be ex Japan. If you are not in the US, let me know where you are, and I will line up the correct website for you.

regards
Graeme

Your problem is not with FixYa, but rather the volume control potentiometer on your Pioneer receiver. As for whether you can fix it yourself, that depends upon your ability to disassemble the receiver to gain access to the volume control and make the repair

Is it totaly ok to just connect one pair of JBL Control 1 speakers to this receiver? Here are some of the specs. Frequency Response: 120 Hz to 20 kHz Power Capacity: 150 W Sensitivity 87 dB SPL Nominal...


The only relevant speaker spec is the impedance. As you probably realize the Pioneer SX-255R recommends 8 - 16 ohm speakers.

Four ohms is on the hairy edge of too low. You could certainly try it but if any strain or excessive volume is used you could see something go poof!

The low end of 120Hz says don't push the bass to them.

Old pioneer vsx 3800 receiver works great except for the volume knob being stiff. At the same time the volume is touchy, if that makes any sense. Also, the remote control will increase volume but not...


This is a common problem where the potentiometers in electronic equipment gets guncked up over time. If you are confident with your DIY skills, you need unplug the receiver and remove the cover. This may or may not be the tricky part. Some receivers are very densely populated and it is hard to get to the components. That being said, you need to find back of the volume potentiometer and spray some contact cleaner inside of it. Then work the pot back and forth several times and that should free it up. This should also take care of the touchiness. You can find contact cleaner at Radioshack or maybe even Walmart.

Pioneer receiver sx-315


With persistence, I was able to program the Universal Remote Control provided with the cable box to control my new used Pioneer SX-315 receiver. I now can control the tv volume, cable box, auxiliary stereo receiver with speaker system with one remote. Thank goodness I did not have to resort to buying a Pioneer remote control.

I was able to program another previously unused universal remote which I purchased several years ago. However, since the other remote control did not list the Vizio TV. That brand is too new for the remote.

Pioneer QX-949


From Charles (owning a QX 949, still working but with some investment into repairs by myself) :
QX 949 contains a "power protection cirquit". This cirquit reacts aswell on short-cirquit (either within the output-amplifier cirquit {transistors} or by faulty speakers) as on overload (by playing musik toooo loud).
Your QX 949 might therefore either be affected by short-cirquit within one of the four output amplifiers or there might be a problem within the pre-amplifier or power section, causing an AC or DC signal to appear at the inputs of the output-amplifier section and therefore overloading the output, as if music was played too loud. First basic test: does the discribed "tick sound" (which means that after power-up the protection cirquit releases the relais again) also appear when the volume is turned down completely ? If not, the fault must be a signal produced within the pre-amplifier section before the volume regulation. If yes there still could be a pre-amp problem after the volume regulation but it´s more likely to be found within the output-amp section. One won´t get round to measure this section (oscilloscope) at it's signal inputs to exclude a faulty signal to arrive there. If this is not the case I would recommend to disconnect and reconnect the four output-amps from the power supply one after the other, for finding which one causes a short-cirquit. But before doing this: try out what happens if you change QX 949 into 2-channel mode by turning the socket on the rear panel. Doing this the output amps for the rear channels are deactivated. If your QX 949 was working under these conditions it would limit your further search to the amps for the rear channels.
There is also a small chance that the power-protection cirquit as such is faulty or that the power supply contains problems. The power supply has got 6 fuses that you will find underneath the bottom plate. Are they all still ok ? (If one of them is broken then there can be a positive or negative supply to the output-amps as these are receiving + and - DC-currents from the power supply)
Basically: this amplifier is almost about 30 years old. As the lifetime of electrolytic capacitors ends after about 15-25 years there appears the need to replace them all (on all the prints). I did it with my QX 949... but you definitely must love yours to do that, it's quite an investment of patience and time.
And: servicemanuals.net display on their webpage availability of QX 949´s service manual. If you can't find it I might be able to scan some pages.

Volume control


Well here goes a spelling problem for me. You need to replace a component called a podentiomiter. It is the actual volume control behind the knob. I have had to replace a few of these, and pioneer seems to to more prone to these problems.
