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)

All of the other speakers work great, but when I hooked up the center speaker, nothing. Am I doing something wrong?


As you gave minimal information, it is hard to solve, but you may have settings on the receiver that determine if sound will go to the center speaker or not, check the sound settings and you might find this is the issue, if more assistance is needed, please give details of the unit brand and model.

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

No sound from front left channel


Hi, here is a procedure to discover the source of the problem. No sound from the left front channel can have several sources other than the left front channel itself.
Let's assume, for just now, that the speaker is good and the cable to it is good.
Here is a testing sequence to follow:
1 If you have a CD player connected to it. Put a CD in and put it into play mode.
2 reverse the connectors from the CD player to the receiver. See if the sound moves to the left speaker and stops on the right speaker. Or if it plays fine.
3 If the sound reverses channels, That cable is bad. Replace it
4 If the sound is still not coming from the left channel. Check the connections and cables to the speaker. MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO STRANDS OF WIRE TOUCHING THE CHASSIS OR SHORTING TO THE OTHER SPEAKER WIRE.
5 If there were. Correct it. Shut down the receiver and then after a few minutes turn it back on.
6 If it still does not work. check to see if a tiny amount of sound is coming from the left speaker.
If so, turn the music up and see if it pops back on . If that is the case there is a failed resister on the circuit board that is arcing when you turn up the volume. That being the case, it is time to drop off the receiver to be repaired in the service center.
Hope this helps,
Best,
Mark

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)?

Noise coming out of speakers connected to Denon AVR 1908


Check for nearby wireless devices and move them away. -If the audio output from the source device (i.e. DVD, CD player) is digital (i.e. PCM, DTS or Dolby Digital) you're on your own. I'd be willing to bet the output is analog (red and white RCA), because the "beeps" and "exploding sounds" you describe seem like it could be caused by interference. Try replacing the cables. Otherwise the issue is probably with your receiver.

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.
