Question about Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver

1 Answer

Power went out for a few minutes and when it came back on, there was no sound coming from any speakers connected to my VSX-D608. All functions appear to be working, at least they show up on the display, but there is not sound. When I turned the volume way up, I could hear the background hiss in the sub-woofer. I don't have a schematic, but is there a specific component that is most likely the problem? Jon

The short answer is there is NO way anyone without hand on the unit could deduce the problem.

First of all, never use maximum volume to test for sound. That's like revving an engine to 10000 rpm's to see if it has started. If you can't hear anything useful at 1/2 volume it's essentially dead or a switch is out of place. If you were to suddenly set the switch or control right you might cook the amp and all its speakers.

Make sure MUTING or MONITOR are NOT activated. Turn the volume down before DEactivatiing either one.

If none of the above, it's toast until a tech can look at it.

VSX-D608 Overload and shutdown


Overload is displayed when the amp draw is excessive, and can be caused by different faults.
when Overload is detected, the protection circuit will shut down the unit to prevent further damage.

The first thing to try is hard reset. Shut down the unit for about one hour to drain power completely.
This can fix minor problems that can cause overload, for example electrostatic charge accumulation on internal capacitors.

If that does not fix the problem, then you must find the fault.

Overload can be caused by shorted speakers, wrong impedance speakers, or by a contact on speakers wiring.
Check speakers connection and test different speakers with 6, or better 8 Ohms impedance.

Another test can be done by unplugging all speakers, and reconnecting and testing them one at a time, at a very low volume.
No more than two 4 Ohms speakers can be connected to the unit, or you will get overload.

If the speakers are OK, then preamp, shorted input/output connectors, main power supply or faulty output transistors can draw too much amps causing overloading.

In that case it is recommendable contacting Pioneer at the number listed on the owners manual.

Sound coming out of wrong speakers


I know nothing about your model but the very first thing that I would do is to pull the power cord from the wall outlet for at least 10 minutes and then plug it back in. This may reset everything.

Center Channel not working on pioneer vsx-d608


Be sure the sound source has a center channel output ie. not a 2 channel source only, try the test tone setup for 5 or 6 channel balance, if no sound from the center channel still then it is looking like maybe the center channel is blown.

Output problem - i think


Based upon your description, I would suspect the speakers not the receiver. Typically, if the receiver was bad, there would be no sound at all. If the front end of the receiver was bad, this symptom could happen, but that is a rare problem. Can you try a different set of speakers? A or B won't make a difference from the receiver. Pleaes try another speaker set and update this with the results and we'll continue on from there.

Thanks,
Dan

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.

Low Audio Level


When I had problems with my VSX-D608, I resorted to downloading the manual for VSX21. This model seems to have the same features in the ELITE form. It has helped me figure out some speaker problems.
