Question about Pioneer VSX-818V-K Receiver

2 Answers

Pioneer VSX 816 X. Speakers have have static coming out of them and sound comes and goes from speakers. There have been instances when I'm watching a movie and I only have one speakers with sound. Very annoying. It almost seems like if it all start o.k but once things get warmed up it starts acting up and the speakers start going out.

As observed by you this seems more related to be thermal issue sometimes circuits have a THERMAL RUNAWAY due to malfunctions thereby pushing the semiconductors/IC's to generate heat and malfunction.
Sometimes the generated heating and cooling over a period of time can damage the board as a case of DRY SOLDERING joints can come up. This can cut away the circuit as the set/component warms up and so could be a reason.
You can use a FREEZE-IT spray to the heating section to instantly cool to return the set to working perfectly thereby confirming this case. If so check for dry joints , attempt only if you are good with soldering dense boards- so as not to bridge connections.
Also check for fault in ventillation and heat sinking.
If none of the above work then the components can be out of value and so reduced on performance. Take consensus and decide.

Hello
The output stage circuit of your Pioneer should be checked well to detect this fault. As sound output comes right at first, and it goes of intermittently, distorted and interrupted, there must be some overheating components are there in the audio output state of your set. As you know, there is no one sentence answer to any electronic devices' fault, as they are composed of thousands of components together, by soldering technique. Each and every component in it will and should work properly to what it is desigened to, otherwise fault will occur. There is an overheat protection circuit composed with the audio output section of most hi-watts amps. If this circuit has some trouble with it, the output section components will overheat, shutdown, distorted sound and such faults will occur.
It is very easy to repair a 'dead' set, than this type of faulty set. One have to check each and every component and should detect out the faulty component. It is really a very skilled work, and one must have thorough knoledge in electronics and proper measuring equipements to go up. A very high quality digital multimeter is a must to follow this fault. Moreover, a sound knoledge in following the schematic diagram of the set, which will look entirely different to that of the circuit boards inside.
Eventhough, this fault is very simple and no costly components has not burned out till now, I advice you to get this set repaired by any experienced service technician, or by the authorised service center for Pioneer at your town. Never switch ON this set till this fault has been rectified. It may make things more worse. For anyone, whatever experienced he or she may be, will take some time to detect this fault. OK.

Trying to fix my Pioneer VSX-816 and when I turn it on it says overload and shuts off. Nothing is plugged into it, and I suspect the STK412-230C chip or STK413-230C chip is bad. Is there any method to...


Unfortuneately no! Regardless, you are better off changing both because of the stress they were both put under. When you change one and not the other it is a matter of time before it goes completely taking the new one out along with it. It is important to check speaker wires for shorts, and speakers to be on the safe side.

Pioneer vsx-519 no sound from center and surround


Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.

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!

When i play music cd all speakers work but when put a dvd on only the 2 front ones and centre speaker goes? Tried all settings. Y are my 2 surround sound speakers not working? I have a pioneer vsx-816...


What is happening is the the pioneer is set up so that you can choose how you listen to your DVDs. So first you must see how your DVD is connected via the audio. I am fairly sure that the Default on the Pioneer is to play it through the standard stereo if all you have plugged in is the left and right audio plugs. If you buy an optical cable or a plug in the Digital Coax out put to the pioneer receiver, then the pioneer will decode the sound and out put true surround sound. Some DVD players don't have a digital out put, but these are the cheapest ones out there. If yours doesn't have a digital out put, then you need to get one that does. They can be purchased for as little as 39.00.

Okay lets assume you bought a DVD player with Digital out put for audio and you have it connected to the receiver. Now, you have to change the mode on your pioneer to let it know that your audio is coming in DIgital when you select the DVD. (Though this may already be the case and you won't have to do anything once you connect it.)

Pioneer VSX 816


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.
