Hi thomasjrgoad

You have a classic amp there, made in 1978, they are now becoming collectible. It sounds as though you have a channel breaking down, and the noise you hear is that channel going to a DC condition, then the click of the speaker protection circuit operating to prevent damage occurring, and then of course no sound until the fault rectifies. It will be a component breaking down causing the problem. If you are up to electronic repairs, have a soldering iron and a meter, then I can talk you through some things to check for in the amp. Otherwise, it is off to a decent HiFi repair guy with the old girl for some attention.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you still have problems, before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

Pioneer sx-255r can i connect 6 - 8 ohms


Yes, you can use them but be careful. These are not necessarily robust speakers. If they sound strained, back off.

Hey my pioneer cd player is playing but know sound all worked fine b4 sometimes i hit a bump and it turns on for a short period of time


check all of you speakers and speaker wires to make sure nothing is shorting out. make sure none of your wires have any bare spots where they can short to ground.

I have a pioneer 1080 receiver. it turns on but no sound


Could be in protect! Possibly a channel is out and won't let the unit turn on. Is this the picture of model or is it the older SX-1080?

I have a Pioneer SX-850 Stereo from the 70's that just stopped working. When powered up all the lights, knobs, buttons, switches, etc. work, but no sound comes out. I also do not hear that distinctive...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

That distinct click is the relay activating. It is the built-in protection common to designs of this period. The only time the relay will not activate is when the protection circuitry has detected a fault in the amplifier/output stake. This would call for replacement of the defective components most likely a transistor complimentary pair or in some instances a large IC power pack.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Pioneer SX-750 Old School Need Help


It could be a dirty control or switch, working them back and forth could prove that. Other than that, It's likely bad outputs. A unit that old may have transistors for outputs but might be IC's. Transistors can be tested with an ohm meter to see if they're good or not. Also if it has transistor outputs, they may have a small value resistor on the Emitters, check those as well.

Hope that helps...

Distorted sound coming out of SW channel only


try turnind down the sub from the amp itself it might be putting out more volts than the subs input can handle check your standing wave feature to make sure the trim is not up too high
