You likely have a cold solder connection on the circuit board. Inspect the board for loose connections for the left channel - use a non-conductive pointed object and poke the board on several places while the unit is power-up. Be careful not to get electrocuted. Compare it to the right channel circuit - they are almost identical. If the unit recovers the left channel while poking, then you have found the bad connection. Re-apply solder to that junction - make sure you've dis-connected the power and dis-charged all caps before you touch and repair the circuit board.

The blinking usually means that the unit is in "protect" mode. Check the output transistors for a shorted condition and replace.

VSX-4800 receiver. Why is there no left channel audio output?


It is likely that the left channel output stage has failed but there can be problems with that A + B speaker switching. A defective switch can cut output.

Sound cuts out


No, this sounds like a speaker problem to me.
It sounds like the voice coils in your speaker(s) have been fried.
What happens is the part that is burnt does not funtion, but as you increase the volume/voltage the speaker "jumps" foward to a section of voice coil that is not as damaged.
Check your speakers!

The rear signal is generated and separated internally, if either the processing is not correct or the rear channel amplifier has a problem, you can get this type of behavior. Does the static happen more often at higher volumes or is it purely random? Does changing the volume make the static louder or is it always the same level?

With the receiver off, press ENTER + ADVANCED SURROUND keys continuously for 2 sec. and it will tell you the fault it encountered. Even if it has a short, it will still protect the speakers; however, it is still a good idea to disconnect all speakers before doing this.

Center channel


Just to rule out the easy solutions, have you made sure no settings changed? Make sure that you didn't accidentally turn off any surround sound settings or turn off the center channel in the MCACC setup or the like (I have the VSX-D814, so your receiver should have MCACC as well). If you're sure no settings changed and the center channel should be working according to the receiver, then it would appear that the center channel amp went out in the receiver. You can either get a Pioneer service center to take a look at it, or if you're comfortable with electronics, I believe you can get the parts straight from Pioneer.

Right center channel doesnt work.


Is there a loose connector on the inside or a loose wire?
