I have a pioneer receiver vsx-5000 it barely has sound I turn the volume up and it still only has a little bit of sound what's the problem

The sound you are hearing is just the pre-amp that is working. It seems the main power amp has failed. A check inside and look at what is on the big heat sink might reveal the cause. If there is something that looks like the image that I posting below then you need to replace it. If separate devices then check the power supply to them or each one.

It sounds like the remote turn on wire from the radio no longer outputs power. You can try connecting the the remote turn on wire from the amp to the accessory power of the radio. Place a 10 amp fuse in line just in case the issue is the amp.

I just bought a VSX-820 and it seems to shut down automatically as soon as turn the volume up

Make sure the speaker wires are tight.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output 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 hands-on tech.

Cool Receiver! I have worked on many of them. Your regulator circuit will need a few zener diodes and possible some caps. It's amazing how good the capacitors are in these though, but the zener diodes fail all the time. I like replacing them all. Larry's Electronics

Amplifier enable. Where to mount rmt hookup on pioneer deh-1400 (old) so my amp/sub can work!!!

Amp turn on wire should be a blue wire with a white stripe on that pioneer unit. extend that wire out to the amps remote turn on wire input. And once the radio is turned on it will sent a 12volt signl and turn on the amp.

My pioneer deh-1900 mp will not turn on

Pioneer GM-7300M 800 Watt amp will not power on

This may have a different type of triggered turn on wire. On some of the older Pioneer amps (and maybe some new ones) the trigger wire would SUPPLY B+ TO THE RADIO and when the radio was switched on the amp would sense a current draw on that wire and would then switch on. Unlike most common amps which sense the presence of B+ on the trigger wire supplied by the radio and then turn on. Look in your owners manual to see kind of turn on system you have. If you don't have an owners manual then perhaps you can download one from Pioneer support. good luck
