Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a pioneer DVD/CD receiver XV-DV303 and I played deck music through the system. However, I think it over heated and shorted, as the sound cut completely and I have not been abkle to turn it on for 2 weeks. All that seems to be working is the green timer light which flashes non-stop. Any ideas?

Output devices have failed, due to excess heat, volume level, or some type of input overload. This is not to say that the components could themselves have a fault due to internal stresses. It's shop time...accordianman

HI i have my PIONEER XV-DV77 BUT NOW ONCE I INCREASE VOLUME THE SYSTEM CUT OFF PLEASE HELP?


You may have a short in one of your speaker wires, and the receiver is protecting itself, or you may have too many speakers connected, or be trying to make the sound louder than your receive can handle.

Pioneer tech support


This implies the laser in the dvd can't read your disk, and says "No disk". Try cleaning the laser first, it'll look like an led. Unplug and disassemble then use a cotton bud with isopropol alcohol, or metho. If this doesn't work, the laser may be dead and it'll just be a surround sound unit then!

Pioneer XV-DV303 (DVD/CD Receiver) When playing a DVD and the sound from the film is raised, the DVD turns off and I have to start from the beginning ensuring the sound is lower.


I imagine ANY audio source would do the same if played loudly enough.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.


Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

I have no sound through my surround sound when playing ps3


The optical audio out from the TV only works for the TV's tuner, probably. Hook-up optical from Cable/SAT and from PS3 boxes to DVD/Receiver.

CD/DVD player won't read discs


Firstly you need to get a Lens Cleaning Kit from KMart, BigW or your countries version of a Supermarket. Use that on the DVD player and then check all your discs for dust and dirt. Clean the discs by lightly wiping from the inside to the outside in a circular motion.
Next step if that doesn't solve the problem would be to take the cover off ( ensure unit is off and unplugged from the power source) and check if the lens is not covered with dust, lint, fluff etc. If covered wipe lightly.
NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE LENS LIGHT

Have got pioneer xv-dv303 dvd/cd receiver.It does not play any dvd and cd these days. I think it needs the firmware update. How can do that.


You need:
PDA w/Palm OS 3.0 or later
OmniRemote Pro V2.02 (http://www.pacificneotek.com/)
Sony Clie peg-SL10

Type in (or transfer) the memo below to your PDA.
As a memo you can import it into OmniRemote with this menu command:
Advanced-->Databases-->Import category

When done, point your PDA towards your DV-454, put OmniRemote in TV-mode and press 0 (Zero)

That's it!!

Some stores charge $35 for this! All I ask is a small donation ($1 or more if you like) to help my site!

Our Pioneer Receiver VSX-312 gave us an OVERLOAD error message while trying to play a DVD and a music CD, and there is no sound. It was really hot. After it cooled off, we tried it again and it did the...


This sounds like the audio power amp has shorted which explains the heat when it failed and the cool temperature when you tried to turn it back on. Usually these recievers have a removable bottom plate that lets you access the bottom of the boards. As there are usually 4-8 transistors along a heat sink that are paired. Check them in diode scale and look for multiple values of 0 from any single transistor. If it gives you 3 or more readings of 0 then its shorted.They also may read low,around 70 or less.In which case it needs to be replaced.
