Yes, evaluate the load presented to its amplifiers by the speakers. If you have any speakers running parallel on the amps instead of one per amp channel you could be experiencing temporary unacceptable drops in impedance.

and

From page 57 in the manual...

• Turn down the volume.

• Lower the 40 Hz and 125 Hz equalizer levels in the Manual MCACC setup on page 34.

• Try switching on the digital safety feature (put the receiver into standby, hold down the SYSTEM SETUP button on the front panel and press STANDBY/ON to switch between SAFETY ON and SAFETY OFF

. If the power switches off even with SAFETY ON selected, turn down the volume.

VSX 60 pioneer receiver shuts down on loud action dvd


Sounds like a bad speaker or speaker that is being over-driven.

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.

On my Pioneer vsx-55txi, the protection circuit cuts in whenever I raise the volume to a reasonable level. If I sit 10 feet or more, the volume is too low. I don't like my music or movies loud, but this...


The protection circuit is enabling because the output transistors are 1. drawing too much current causing them to heat-up 2. the transistors are going out 3. the threshold level for the quiesce state is set too high and may need to be adjusted internally. Try to cool down the Unit and see if it occurs again.

Have a Pioneer VSX-1018 receiver. When I connect


You speakers are out of phase. Check to see if the polarity is correct on the receiver and the speaker. Positive (red) with positive, negative with negative (black). Also check the impedance of the speaker, it should be located on the back of the speaker measured in ohms. Make sure that your receiver matches the impedance of your speaker. You can find this in the settings of the receiver.

Pioneer VSX-D509S keeps shutting off


Aside from any intrinsic problem with your receiver, the usual suspects are;
1) Poor receiver ventilation. 2) Very high levels of bass. 3) Shorts in the speaker wiring. 4) A rubbing loudspeaker voice coil.

Pioneer receiver shuts off


This might not be any help to someone else, but I fixed the problem by double checking all the speaker wire connections - on the speakers and behind the receiver. A couple banana plugs felt loose and I discovered that one connection on one speaker was out completely. Suppose I should have seen that sooner, but as soon as I ensured all the wires were where they were supposed to be, I encountered no more problems.

If your Pioneer receiver is shutting off on you, double check all your connections!

Pioneer VSX-D209 receiver shuts off when too loud


Dear Tabasco,

Your receiver is basically going into protect mode.

Just check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Take out all the wire and put them back again if necessary..
Some times even a little tiny frayed wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.
Just check your speaker as well....whether they play all right thru another receiver or amplifier. its posiible they might be shorting inside. A little frayed wire could also trigger the protect circuit in your receiver.
I hope this should solve your problem.

If everything else seems all right and still your receiver shut down when you raise the volume then it possible that there are bad connections on the main board that are set in.

This would generally happen if the system is slighly old or have dry solder and when you raise up the volume. This should be a simple repair that will not require parts. If you can solder, you will be able to repair this yourself. If not, then a local service center will change the local labor rate.
Hope you can sort out your problem with the above trouble shooting. Let me know if I can guide you further.
Best of luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

I turn on receiver Pioneer vsx d608, then few seconds later screen flashes "poweroff", then shuts off by itself


Check all speaker wiring for shorts. If nothing is found, unit obviously has circuit problems, have serviced.

Make sure the positive and negative match up between the receiver and all speakers. I had the same problem and 1 out of 5 speakers had the wires backwards.
