    I have not opened it up yet. I am not techno savy at all, but I am willing to get my hands dirty. Can you tell where I might find these capacitors? What they might look like? And how to check them.

    The signal is not the problem.Like I said the power comes on. I can hook it up to my TV and get sound from the speakers, just no radio. I don't know if the Tuner button does not work.

    Thank all of you for your help. I will try your suggestions.

    did u open it and check the capacitors?

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 07, 2008

    also may be due to some kind of shorting since it has not been used from a long time.
    just make a cleaning work inside it and the start the unit.

    you can get it fixed i think

    thank you

Pioneer VSX-D412 directv remote code


I also have the VSX D412 and DirectTV. My DirectTV remote controls the D412 fine, but I did have the same problem you're experiecing with a Sylvania flat screen that the remote wouldn't operate. I corrected my problem by turning the TV off, then back on using the TV's remote, then telling the DirectTV system that I didn't know the model number and let the system search for the code. Hope this helps.

My Pioneer VSX-D1S A/V receiver will not power on; this began yesterday. Pressing the power button results in only a clicking sound along with the standby LED turning on. The owner's manual states to press...


Unit is pretty old I had one of these back in 98-99.

Time to upgrade a service tech is going to cost you $150 just to open it up and figure out whats bad.

Pioneer ok but check out Denon's line of receivers Onkyo is good too but they have a high rate of repairs

Pioneer doesn't make them like they used to that D1S was a tank, had tons of audio / video inputs was one of the first with video upconverting had lots of power and a great front display panel. BUT technology has come along way and pioneer hasn't kept up. They even stopped making high end TV's a few years ago even though they were regarded as the best sets out there.

Denon AVR-4310CIgoogle it they sell for ALOT less than sticker I bought one for $1299 with a 5 year warranty

Hope that helps

No audio output


THE FIX - to audio problems that persist with the VSX-29TX and others using the AWX7272 DSP board is to replace the ROM on the DSP. My unit started failing on and off after 10 years of use! The intermittent DSP board is an Extremely Common and irritating Problem for this model! The replacement IC,(2) resistors + shipping and handling totaled $49.65 and my unit is finally fixed correctly! Don't believe other posts that you can get away with re-soldering; it will continue to fail again and again! Details of fix are:

Replacement for the old Pioneer ROM located at location IC 9374, should be done with the part PD6381A from Pioneer Electronics. You will also need to move (relocate) the 2 resistors (0 Ohm resistors) located at R9372 and R9371 to locations R9374 and R9373.

This component update applies to DSP boards marked as AWX7433, AWX7272.

This fix is validated (from Pioneer) on the VSX-26TX,VSX-27TX,& VSX-29TX it might also work in the VSX-908, VSX-908RDS and others as long as the same DSP board was used.

Let me caution and stress that surface mount soldering skills ARE REQUIRED to do this update! It also doesn't hurt to have excellent vision and/or an eye loop or microscope to check your work. Original ROM's were subject to timing changes internal to the part as a result of HEAT. This model does get HOT! The program was also modified as a further safeguard to re-occurrence.

Owners book / manual for Pioneer receiver VSX-605s


www.pioneerusa.com then support. I could not find your "Exact" model, and it could depend on where it was purchased. Look at units closely labeled to yours and chances are it will be the same with a different #. Hope this helps

Does pioneer model vsx 403 come with a remote control? If so how can you relace it?


I have the same unit. It does come with a remote. The original remote is pretty much impossible to find. But also there are some companies that sell remotes for it. Google Pioneer VSX403 remote replacement. I have yet to get a remote :D
Good Luck.

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
