Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a pioneer vsx-9900s- was running it hard for New Year's and at the end of the night it started to smell and then the sound stopped dead. The front panel and all controls work, but no second click- Also the A/B speaker selectors don't produce a click anymore when you turn them on and off. I am wondering about the output array you mentioned above. Is this checkable/replaceable? I don't mind tearing into this thing with a multimeter, but don't want to get nailed by a capacitor somewhere! THANKS in advance for any guidance! Steve

If the thing smells you shouldn't need any test equipment apart from your eyes and nose. That should lead you to something burnt up! Unlikely you will encounter any high voltage parts.

I have a pioneer vsx-9900s it has high low speaker impedance switch all my speakers are 8omhs what do i set the switch to low or high ?


This is fairly variable depending on such factors as the sensitivity rating of your speakers; but as a rule of thumb just put the switch at low and you should be fine.

Possibilities: your source setting is wrong, your tape monitor switch (if it has one) is on, your speaker selector position is wrong. Do any lights come on?

Pioneer works with cable box but not with new blue


HDMI version is 1.3 in your receiver.The current version is 1.3b. I would suggest calling Pioneer cust assistance and see if there is a firmware update. Your unit has a 2 year parts & labor warranty. Their # is 1-800-421-1404 It sounds like a CODEC issue. Hope this helps

Hello,I have a Pioneer VSX-D710S 5.1 reciever get hot and smell l


Heatsinks on mosfets are probably not connected, or broke connection. If you are not trained in electronics dont go poking and proding around in there, a capacitor can easily kill you. If you have some knowledge open it up and see if you see and burnt components etc. You may just need new heatsink grease etc. Does it have a fan that stopped working? If a piece is visually fried take the unit to your local electronic repair shop and see if they can solder in a new part if available. depending on the price of the amp, it would be ebetter to go spend money on a new one.

Speakers for pioneer vsx 1018


I think you're making this way more complex than it is.

This unit should have no trouble with any reputable speaker. Don't read too much into short term impedance readings as long as you run only one speaker per channel. Every speaker has a dip somewhere in its frequency range and the Pioneer will probably protect itself and the speaker should impedance or current get too out of whack. This is a high end unit and has plenty of clean power to feed any speakers out there.

I'd buy it if I didn't already have a 6-year old predecessor (VSX-T36TX) that I paid twice as much for and has only 5 amplified channels, less features and lower power output. ;-(

Good luck and happy listening!

Sound Just Stopped Working


I have the same problem with my 49txi, and I called pioneer and a repair shop as well. Both told me that the 49txi has a known problem with over heating and that its boards unsolder themselves. I would have thought Pioneer would stand behind something this expensive, but that was the old Pioneer in the 80s, and the new Pioneer says we are on our own.

Vsx-9900s


Hi angelo40

The amp sounds like it has a primary power supply failure and/or may be in protection mode. First, I would check for any blown fuses, replace any you fint with exactly the same type and rating. I can advise you here if you are not sure. If the unit blows a fuse after replace any failed ones, then there is a short circuit that you will have to trace out in the unit. DONT KEEP REPLACEING A BLOWING FUSE You generally are just doing more damage to the amp.

If all the fuses are OK and you are savvy with electronics and soldering, you could open it right inspect for these problems., and you have a multimeter, do some powersupply voltage checks, also check for that the main transformer is ok. Resolder any dry joints you find.

It may also (and or) have a problem in the output stages. Running it hard may have produced some dry solder joints, or blown a transistor in the output array. Happy to advise you further, just ask :)

regards
Graeme
