How to vary the Multi zone levels at the receiver

This is encouraging: I have EXACTLY the same problem! I've had the unit for a few years and never had this, but a couple months ago it occurred and the operating instructions do not provide a clue how to adjust the volume for other rooms (Multi function). There is a brief section "Setting the multi vol. level", but nowhere is there a hint how to vary the levels (extremely high volumes in all Multi locations). One would assume from the description that "Variable" is the correct option (and, of course, I've tried all 3 options), but neither that nor the other 2 options appear to be adjustable at the receiver. For the "Variable" option it states: "The level can be adjusted freely using the buttons on the remote control unit." IT DOES NOT STATE HOW!!! Frustrating.

Try putting amp to zone 2 go to set up menu for "variable" volume adjust and turn down the volume with the remote control volume buttons or use the volume control on the amp,this should work,i had the same problem with a YAMAHA amp and this worked.

The receiver will not turn on, there is a red led that continuously blinks on far left corner of display


The unit is in protect mode. Try holding the advanced surround and power buttons for around 5 seconds. the unit should turn back on. If it turns back off after a few seconds, then you most likely have a problem in the amplifier that will need to be repaired.

Warning levels


Hello
The (+ve) & (--ve) poles of the connection wires have neen reversed is the meaning. Just interchange the wires of each either at speaker box or at the output terminals of the amp. If these connection are reversed, the sound effect will vary in intesity. OK.

Unit only stays on for 4 seconds then turns itself off.


This is a short or unstable ohm load. Remove all speaker wire connections to see if the amp will stay on.
If the problem goes away when disconnecting the speaker wires try this:
1) Check volume level on zone one and zone 2 if connected. If it is too high the amp will go into protect mode and shut off exactly as you described.
2) Make sure no wires are touching any other wire or the metal surface of the amp. This will cause a short and send the amp into protect mode.

Subwoofer amplifier


Here's how I'd do it... connect the subwoofer pre-out to one of the unused analog inputs (CD or CD-R perhaps?). Turn on Zone 2 by pressing the MULTI-ZONE ON/OFF button. The MULTI-ZONE indicator will light.

Press CONTROL. (Zone 2 should display) Use the INPUT SELECTOR dial to select the source for the zone you have selected. In my example, CD or CD-R.

Of course, you'll need the sub hooked up to the Surround back speaker terminals.

Here's a link to the manual online:
Pioneer VSX-1018 Manual

Things to keep in mind:
The Surround Back setting must be set to ZONE 2. See page 41 of the manual.
The volume level going to the sub will probably need some tweaking. Check out page 7 to see how to manually adjust volume levels, or get it close by adjusting the Master Volume while in Zone 2 control.

I'm not sure if the auto setup function (with the included microphone) will work properly with this setup. And, of course, this is not a "suggested" setup by Pioneer, so please use caution when hooking everything up.

Good luck!

Denon AVR-4802R automatically shuts off in multi-zone mode


i had the volume of the multi-zone tuned too high and was attenuating it in an external control box. Once i took the multi-zone volume down to -25db, the problem went way. My main zone was operating around -35db so did not have the problem.

It keeps shutting off


If you have zone 2 active with the level turned up too much it will cut out the whole unit. Try disconnecting zone 2 speakers, then turn the volume level way down on zone 2 and it should stay on if that is the problem.

Onkyo 805 zone 2 problem


I just figured out what I was doing wrong last night. On the 806 at least, when zone 2 is not powered (receiver is set to act) there is a separate volume control 'level' that is on the receiver a couple buttons right of the zone 2 button. By default this level appeared to be set to -50db. As soon as I turned up this level sound came out of my zone two.
