Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Cant get pioneer vsx-d307-ht receiver to put out surround sound. the test tone works fine and all speakers are working as test tone moves from speaker to speaker (i dont have a center speaker or a sub woofer, but i do have front speakers and side speakers),but i cant get any output from the vcr or tv or lp record player. i suspect it might have to do with having to have a video palying that is encoded with dolby surround recording formats. if the video says "dolby digital", is that the same thing as "dolby surround"

Maybe the product doesn't support it. You can probably try something different or maybe do a troubleshoot on it or something.

SOURCE: Panasonic SC-HT900-problems with surround sound mode and digital input

I tried to fix the popping defect to no avail. I thought if i powered the internal subwoofer fan to a different power source that it would solve the issue. Although the fan spins faster connected to an external power source, and it keeps the sub motherboard cooler, it still pops (less often) and loses sound. The fan just cools it faster so that it can happen again. The working fan only extends the functionality twice as long but still has the same issue. I did notice on the subwoofer motherboard that there's a dark spot near a few transistors/regulators. I suspect at least one of them have already failed causing the system to overheat anyway. I also suspect that if I keep using the system, those will also fail. I will never buy anything Panasonic and neither will anyone I know (I'll tell them all not to). Don't buy this product.

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-SR500 Dolby Digital problem

I just read over the problem you were having with your Onkyo TX-SR500 receiver. It sound like the unit needs to be setup for all five channels.Sence your symptom says the diplay shows Dolby D3/2.1. According to the owners manual with the remote control look for speaker setup whin the button is pressed the current speaker setup will be shown in the display. Press the preset/adjustment<> to change the current setting to five speakers. the listening mode will automatically change according to the number of channels you selected. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Setting Up Surround Sound with satellite tv digital tuner

What model do you have?

You should be able to plug the audio/video output from the satellite TV system into the audio/video input on the JVC system. Then set the JVC system to the appropriate input.

I need to know the exact model to know how or if this is even possible. Some JVC models don't let you input any additional devices. Others might not have the inputs that are necessary for surround.

Pioneer VSX-D307 has no sound from right front speaker.


Did you connect a known good speaker to the amplifier's right front output connections? Make sure you also have known good wires for the front right as well. Make sure balance control is set to the middle and not just to the left.

Manuals help a lot.

Tell us about the speakers. Maybe they're not compatible.

As far as what to expect to hear from surrounds, that depends on the sound engineering.

Test tones for speaker setup will get it all dialed in. Page 17.

Problem for Pioneer VSX-818V-K 5.1 Channels Receiver Surround sound doesn't work, display reads 2CH IN,surround speakers are enabled,automatic test will find surrand speakers


Test with an surround sound media ie. Blu-ray or DVD)_. Disconnect the front and all other speakers that are working to see if sound from the missing speakers are heard. If this doesn't work then start by tracing and checking all the wires from the receiver to the speakers for bad/shorted/open connections.

PLEASE VOTE IF THIS WAS HELPFUL. THANKS & GOOD LUCK.

Center Channel not working on pioneer vsx-d608


Be sure the sound source has a center channel output ie. not a 2 channel source only, try the test tone setup for 5 or 6 channel balance, if no sound from the center channel still then it is looking like maybe the center channel is blown.

Ok, how much is "a bit"? If you are operating your unit at the 50% or more level, your unit is working as it should, as DVD and CD players output more signal than other sources...accordianman
