My old Pioneer CS-G203 speakers started cutting out a few months ago. I checked the wire connections to the back of the speakers and the receiver and they are solid. What's wrong and how can I fix it?

SOURCE: Yamaha HTR-5990 Receiver

I JUST EXPERIENCED THE SAME SITUATION HERE IS THE SOULTION YAMAHA SENT ME TO RESET THE SYSTEM HTR-5990 YAMAHA HTR-5990 FACTORY PRESET PROCEDURES All models require the STANDBY/ON button to be turned OFF to start the reset process. NOTE: The remote control cannot be used during the reset procedure. All necessary buttons to complete the reset process are located on the front panel of the receiver. This procedure is not intended to correct intermittent shut-off symptoms or problems MODEL: HTR-5990 (U.S.A. model/s) (BEFORE YOU CONTINUE, PLEASE READ THE ABOVE NOTES!) 1. Before you start this procedure, locate the MASTER ON/OFF button and the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button on the Front Panel of the unit. 2. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR RECEIVER’S MASTER ON/OFF HAS BEEN TURNED OFF. 3. With the Right Hand, press and hold the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button. With the Left Hand, press the MASTER ON/OFF button and HOLD both buttons for no more than “3” SECONDS, AT THE SAME TIME. SP IMP. * 8 MIN. will appear on the display, which indicates you are in the Diagnostics Mode. 4. Rotate the PROGRAM KNOB to the right (ONCE) until the display reads PRESET *CANCEL. 5. Press the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button (ONCE) and the display will change to PRESET RESET. 6. Turn the unit off by pressing the MASTER ON/OFF button. 7. Wait 5 seconds, then turn the unit on by pressing the MASTER ON/OFF button. You have now reset your component to the factory settings. NOTE: Yamaha receivers don’t have to be reset during normal operation. It is not recommended that you reset the receiver unless a setting has been changed that you are not aware of, or the receiver is not operating properly. The reset procedure will clear an incorrect setting that might be causing abnormal operation. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: Onkyo 805 sub hook up problem

I made the same mistake when i hooked my REL sub up to the back of the 805.

The problem is there are 2 connectors on the back of the amp that are labeled as sub out. Look very closely, you will see that there are 2 grouped RCA outs. The RCA out group you are looking for differentiated by groups of "little white dots" all the way to the far right on the back of the amp. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: The subwoofer is not working on our Bose 5.1 surround speakers.

I have the same exact Yamaha receiver run with a Bose Acoustimass II system, running in 5.1 surround sound.

The front three speakers and subwoofer would always work. But
somtimes either both or just one of the rear speakers wouldn't work. Obviously when I would turn it on and this was happening I would go through and check all the RCA and bare wire connections, everything looked good. I had other family members who would visit me fairly regularly. I asked them if they had messed around with the settings at all. They said no, they said, "All I do it turn it on and turn it off." I asked them to show me how they were turning it on and off. One said, "When I turn it on I push the Main On button on the receiver itself and I hit the same button to turn it off." Then I started think about it and this problem would usually happen after they had visited.

I found when you power on it's fine to hit the Main On button on the receiver or the POWER button on the remote, but if you don't power down with STANDBY I would have this problem reoccur every time.

Since I've told everyone who visits the proper way to power on and standby off, I have not had a problem since.

Possible overheat


Check for crushed , damaged and shorted speaker wires at the terminals of both the amp and speakers and over the entire length of the wires. Clear any shorted connections and replace damaged wires. If still persisting, you may need to have it serviced.

I would like to set up my old Pioneer PL-514 turntable and my Pioneer SX-550 sterio reciever to listen to some old LPs. I seem to have lost the instructions and connection diagrams. Could you please...

The upper link is for the turntable, the lower is for the receiver. they want you to create an account tu dowlnload so just create an account with them. In my expierience turntables had hook upeads out the back(wires connected) that would hook to phono in on receiver and speakers would hook to receiver via speaker wires(may not be included) by pos and neg. The speaker wire usually either has a rib or a line or writing on on leg so you can identify which wire you would want to be pos or neg.

My pioneer VSX D2011 cuts to standby when playing music


Your receiver is basically going into protect mode.
Are you pumping up the volume when you connect the TV?

Just check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Take out all the wire and put them back again if necessary..
Are you using banana plugs for connecting speaker or just directly. Some times even a little tiny frayed wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.
Just check your speaker as well....whether they play all right thru another receiver or amplifier. its posiible they might be shorting inside. A little frayed wire could also trigger the protect circuit in your receiver.
I hope this should solve your problem.

If everything else seems all right and still your receiver shut down when you raise the volume then it possible that there are bad connections on the main board that are set in.

This would generally happen if the system is slighly old or have dry solder and when you raise up the volume. This should be a simple repair that will not require parts. If you can solder, you will be able to repair this yourself. If not, then a local service center will change the local labor rate. Hope you can sort out your problem with the above trouble shooting. Let me know if I can guide you further.
Best of luck and have a great party!! Thanks for using FixYa!

It keeps goin to protectin mode


Well I have an Onyyo TS SV515 Pro II receiver that is quite a few years old. I have lived in several houses and have moved it with me. For as long as I can remember it has been going into 'protect mode' when I turned it over 6 on the volume knob. I have a subwoofer and 4 infinite speakers and a yamaha center channel speaker.
I got on the internet the today to see if I could figure out why it did this. One person suggested cutting my speaker wires and resplicing it making sure no hanging wires where there.
I had been using the same speaker wire since I puchased it (10 yrs ago). I feel pretty stupid, cause I just did the wires to my front 2 Infinite speakers and WaLa...It works flawlessly. I can now turn up my receiver...after 10 years of dealing with no 'full' volume.
*****Check those speaker connection, they are the key*****

Turns off 5-10 mins after turned on


One thing to check would be the speaker connections. If this receiver worked before you moved it and only started doing this after it was moved, that could be the source of the problem.
If the speakers are connected improperly it could cause it to go into protect mode after a few minutes.
Also check the speaker wires and make sure you don't have any frayed wire sticking out and touching the chassis of the reciever or shorting together.
The phase control symbol is something I would need to research, I have repaired several of these recievers and do not remember the phase control ever being a problem.
Logic would dictate that something is connected wrong, my first thought is the speakers, but it could be something else. I would go back over every single connection on the back of this unit and double and triple check them all. make sure the positive speaker connections are going to the positive speaker post and negative to negative.
It is also easy to connect the speakers to the wrong jacks on the reciever. You may be bridging a channel or two and that would cause the reciever to get hot very fast and shut down.
If none of this helps you may just have to take it in to a service center. I would reccomend an authorized Pioneer service center. They can at least call Pioneer tech support and talk to Mark, Bernie, or Mike at Pioneer. They are on top of all things Pioneer.

I will be happy to help you further if you need it.

Sound cuts out.


I had the same issue with the front right speaker randomly cutting out. Thought it was a loose solder joint however upon taking it apart i found that something near the back panel was shorting out. While apart i found that wiggling the rear panel would cut in and out the speaker. Also the fan would turn on when the speaker worked, which until i took it apart i didn't know it had a fan. I removed the back panel by taking out several screw the hold the cable plug-ins. once the panel was out i insulated it with electrical tape then used a utility knife to cut out all the cable connector holes. I also took out a couple screws on the main board so i could lift it a bit from the back and ran electrical tape over the solder point for the speaker connectors. Put it back together and haven't had any cut out's since. I now notice that the fan now runs all the time exept when i press mute. I also hear a single tap noise for a second when i mute or turn off the receiver. I can certainly put up with that though. Hope this helps someone else, I put up with the speakers cutting out for 6 months before i got around to taking it apart. Also those bannana plugs are a rip off, I went to future shop to buy them and couldn't beleive they were 25.00 for two pair. That would mean it would cost me 75.00 to do my 5 speakers. Thats more than i paid for my dvd player. anyhow i didn't buy them and just used bullet connectors, pack of 10 for less than 5.00, not made of gold but they work fine.
