Question about Pioneer VSX-36TX

Open Question

I have a Pioneer VSX 36 TX and it will not power "on" it does nothing at all no lights relays inside working nothing at all (yes my outlets are all good).. I have another newer Pioneer SC 05 but really enjoyed the warmth in tone of this so i would like to get it up and running again.. I have some electronics experience and have been inside the unit but wish i had a schematic to speed up the troubleshooting by knowing what voltages I should be seeing..Any ideas would be appreciated.

A bad relay won't pick and release itself. You need to find the cause.

Here's the Service manual.

Or maybe something is obstructing the rear panel ventilation device (or it has failed). Page 84

I had a problem recently after a power outage where both my receiver and an external amp would not power up until I unplugged them from the wall for a moment first.

My pionner audio video multi changer receiver vsx-498 shuts off then turns on when the receiver is on how can i fix it


The problem is not clear. Does the unnamed multichanger turn of/on wit hthe VSX-498 or is the VSX-489 having power issues?

Is the power cord of the multichanger plugged into the back of the VSX maybe the outlet is SWITCHED with the power state of the VSX..

Twice now my Pioneer VSX-819H has shut down. Can not get any power to it. The first time I'm sure the phono pre-amp caused a surge. I no longer have it hooked up. The servicer said nothing was wrong and...


I found this for the VSX918, 818. Perhaps it's similar.

The power does not turn on. • Disconnect the power plug from the outlet, and insert again.
• Make sure there are no loose strands of speaker wire touching the rear panel. This could cause the receiver to shut off automatically.
The receiver suddenly switches off and the power indicator
blinks.
• After about a minute (you won’t be able to switch the unit on during this time), switch the receiver back on. If the message persists, call a Pioneer authorized independent service company.

Resetting the main unit
Use this procedure to reset all the receiver’s settings to the factory default. Use the front panel controls to do this.
1 Switch the receiver into standby.
2 While holding down the ADVANCED SURROUND button, press and hold the
STANDBY/ON button for about three
seconds.
3 When you see RESET? appear in the display, press ‘
ST –’. OK?
shows in the display.
4 Press SOUND RETRIEVER to confirm.
OK
appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory settings.

Relay clicks, no display only the volume lights


Hello,
This is a common problem with a few of the Pioneer of that era (VSX-3300, 3700, etc). A secundary power supply line is faulty and it prevents your display from working. It is not an easy DIY, but a local tech should be able to fix. It is not always the same exact cause, as there are a couple transistors, a zener diode and a cap that can fail.
You can continue to use it without any detrimental effects on the unit, and can guess the settings.
Good luck

My Pioneer VSX-D704S WILL NOT POWER ON. WHEN I PUSH THE POWER BUTTON NOTHING HAPPENS. THEN THE STANDBY LIGHT COMES ON.


It is in protection and will need to be serviced. Find a local AUTHORIZED pioneer service center.

Pioneer VSX-94TXH locks up and requires me to remove power at outlet to resume working


I had the same thing with mine. After a couple of weeks in the local repair shop, it was determined that the main? in-put chip on the back of the front panel was bad. Had it replace for about $125 out the door and it's been working great since.

Won't power on


Our VSX-515-S quit suddenly while playing when it was turned up quite loud. The power would not come back on. I disconnected it, and opened it up. No fuses were blown, but there was no voltage in the power supply. When I pressed the on button, I could hear a very faint click, but no power. I even took some parts out and replaced them.

I went on line and bought a service manual download for $7.95.

Within 5 minutes, I found where the service manual said if there was a DC overload, the power would cut off. To reset, press the ENTER + ADVANCED SURROUND key simultaneously and hold for 3 seconds.

I did this and the power came back on. It even remembered the last FM station it was tuned to. Problem s.olved
