Question about Pioneer SX-255R Receiver

1 Answer

Minimal sound We have connected our receiver and cd player to the speakers after moving and now the sound is very minimal even when turned up all the way. Is there something stupid we are missing to connecting this? We have gone over and over the wire connections and cannot seem to find what we have done wrong. Are there fuses or something inside these things that can go bad? Signed, Frustrated

Please reconnect your system again and confirm that cd cables in cd in in your receiver and try with another cables- and check another input if your system is ok the problem will be in the the cd itself or its cables-if not tle problem will be in receiver or its speaker cables(check that the wire of the cables does not touch each other)

Makes large thumping/chirping noise when turned on. Its not even connected to the receiver

Since you have said the speakers make this sound when "turned on", I'm going to assume there's some form of power amplifier attached (internal, external or otherwise). Based on the minimal information provided here, this simply sounds like the normal reaction of a speaker when the amplifier is turned on. In short, an audio speaker is a type of "transducer" and when power is applied (thru some form of amplifier), the cone reacts to the power surge and causes a thump, pop or other noise. Turn on your TV for example and you'll usually hear a small pop from the speakers...and a larger/more powerful amplifier is likely to make a louder noise. Without further information, in most cases this is quite normal.

Assuming there is an external power amplifier, my advice would be to turn the volume on the amp (regardless of whether there's a receiver connected) to 0 before turning the power on. If it still makes such a noise, it's possible the volume control of the amp may require cleaning.

Good Luck!

My nad av316 amplifier has video image but no sound coming out and when i connected to my TV the image of the DVD is there but still no sound from the speaker. However, my speaker is working fine with the...

Which speaker are we talking about here? The TV's or the ones attached to the NAD?

IMORTANT!!! Is this a new problem or has it NEVER worked?

We need some details of the TV, DVD and how the video and audio paths run in all directions to diagnose.

My high-level $.02...

A TV's speakers are NOT generally considered a viable additions or alternatives to audio-specific designs. That is not to say they aren't better than some. Just that same TV's usually are not at the output end of an audio chain for good reason. Video, yes.

Even though this may go 'against the book', I'd recommend you go for minimal receiver involvement in the video side other than to send composite video to the TV from "Monitor Out" so you can set up and manage the receiver through the TV.

You can also send Cable- or Sat Box basic analog audio directly to the TV if it has inputs for audio. That way if you just want to watch the news or weather you don

Dennon DRA 697ci with bose 901 speakers.....just moved to new house....hooked up stereo and can only get minimal output

I assume it used to work. You need to ensure the connections to and from the active equalizer are all proper. I would think you have it in the Pre-Main loop.

It sounds to me like you have an in/out reversal at the EQ or a dead Tape Monitor selected.

Or MUTING is selected on the DRA.

Suddenly, I can only hear the sound faintly, even though it's turned up full volume on my Yamaha HTR 5560. What happened? I've played around everywhere with the converter now. Restore defaults anywhere?...

Have you checked the MUTE function?

NEVER turn the volume up more than half-way for any sound problem. Otherwise, if you suddenly find the switch that's out of position you could blow your speakers.

What converter?

What channels, what source(s)?

No sound out of receiver

Check to see if Speaker A (Under the Power Button) is pressed, if Speaker A is selected, the icon will illuminate in the Display panel. Try Speaker B if this should not be the case. Generally, the Speaker A setting will supply power to all connections from the internal amplifier. Speaker B will supply frequency signals to a preamp or minimal power to an aux. room.

Minimal sound output

Very well could be your amp setup. The only reason you would get lound sound from the stereo is if the mute is on or the audio outputs are fried. have you tried to hook up the stereo directly to a single speaker?

Receiver won't play music!!

Assuming that you have no sound from any speaker (hardwired and amplified from the phono/RCA output) I think it could be a fault introduced by your sub install. Have you tried unplugging the phono lead to the sub? If the phono lead has a short in it, it may effect the entire system. It could also be down to heat or lack of power. Have you got adequate thickness of cable and a high enough rating of fuse?
