Question about Pioneer VSX-D557

1 Answer

Lightening hit neighbor's tree - we lost cable and stuff

When we turn on the "power" switch the unit displays: "TUNER" for a few seconds, then displays: "POWER OFF" for about 10 seconds and then goes into "Stand-by" mode. It didn't do this before the thunderstorm. What can we do?

Make a home owner's insurance claim. Your receiver needs to go in for repairs.

SOURCE: Shows to be stuck in Standby.

hold down the enter button and the advanced surround button for 5 seconds or so and the amp will restart, the display will come up and hopefully it will be ok. its often caused by using speakers under 8 ohms, or damaged speaker cables etc

SOURCE: Our receiver (pioneer vsx-405) will not power on.

Hello,

Usually a fault like the you ask will indicate a bad transistor in the amplification section. I suspect that the control circuit is sensing a fluctuation in the power supply and going in to protect mode. (assuming that the protect circuit itself is working properly) If a voltage is too high the unit will go in to protect mode to prevent damage to the speakers and the rest of the unit. I would take the unit in to a local repair shop and get a estimate of repair charges. Expect a 60 to 80 dollar repair charge depending on how many parts need to be replaced and what the repair labor rate is in your area.
Good luck...

No display but have sound


HI
Try resetting the system . if this doesn't work.
"Service" is needed .
To clear the AVR's entire system memory including
tuner presets, output level settings, delay
times and speaker configuration data.

1: first put the unit in Standby by pressing the System
Power Control button
2. Next press and hold the Tone Mode button 8 for three seconds.
The unit will turn on automatically.
this will clear all the proccessor.
Note that
once you have cleared the memory in this manner,
it is necessary to re-establish all system configuration
settings and tuner presets.

Good luck
Kind Regards

Onkyo sound popping / protected shows in the display


It depends on what happened to the receiver. Have you tried to connect up the unit to the wall socket yet, without the Monster power strip? If that does not help you, and the unit still gets pops and goes into protect mode, you have an issue with one of the output stages in the amp. I'm afraid that this type of repair can only be diagnosed by a tech who knows how to trouble shoot solid state amplifiers. You may also contact Monster cable, as if you can get the tech to agree with you on the cause of the problem, most of the Monster Cable power strips come with a warranty against this problem from happening and will pay for the repair. Good Luck

Denon CD not switching on


The lightening causes a strong electro magnetic field to build up very quick and also break down. This pulse can induce a huge current in electronic equipment, causing damage in semiconductors.
The damage can be in any of the components in your Denon. It also could be only one semiconductor. FET's and MOS FET's are the most vulnerable.
Without a service manual, tools and the Denon on my desk it would be impossible to tell what is damaged.
But I would trust not any component in the player.
Also read ESD and what happens direct and what can happen when times goes bye.

When I turn on my receiver, it automatically turns off and the power button flashes red. Prior to shut down, the receiver display notes "Tuner Ext. In" What's the problem? It has worked p


Protection circuit turns off the unit because of critical conditions- wrong power supply voltages or one of the power amplifier channels is bad. First, visual inspect the power amp board near the heat sink for burned resistors, test outputs for a short. If there are no problem you may try to turn the unit on and you have several second before it shuts down to check power supply voltages and power amp output voltages and bias, then ... Long story you'd better take it to a repair shop or repair at ebcelectronics.com

Unit won't power up completely


The clicks you hear are the relay that completes the circuit for 110V AC to the main power transformer. Mine had the same problem and here's how I've gotten it to work. A lightning strike near our house caused it to fail, and I traced it to the power transformer relay activation circuit. The tuner and amp were fine. I found a bad transistor in the relay circuit, but didn't have a replacement on hand, so I soldered a jumper wire across the relay switch connections on the power transformer circuit board. This connects the 110V AC directly to the power transformer. DC Power to the amp and tuner circuits will still be controlled by the power switch, but the transformer will be supplying all the AC voltages to the main board. If there is a real problem with the circuits that load the transformer or the transformer itself, then the fuse will blow. If the fuse doesn't blow then I suspect the problem is just in the power sequencing circuit itself, that is not needed for operation other than to make the unit "Energy Star Compliant". A lot of electronic items have a transformer that is not switched, and only fused, so that the supplies are available at all times.

No HDMI Output


My configuration:
ZONE 1 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 1 [S-Video out] -> [S-Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [HDMI out] -> [HDMI in] Sony KDS-60A3000 rear projection TV

ZONE 2 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 2 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] Samsung AQUOS LCD TV

Problem:
ONKYO receiver stops sending video signal to my ZONE 1 Sony TV through the HDMI connection. ZONE 2 may still receive video. (NOTE: the issue might be related to the upconverter circuitry?)

Symptom:
I couldn't see any video, but I could hear the Tuner 1 audio through my ONKYO. An important clue is that I couldn't see ONKYO's on-screen display menu on my TV when hitting the [Setup] button on my remote. But, I could see my TV's Sony-based menus and display options.

Solution:
1. Put all ZONES in Standby mode using the remote. Hit these buttons on remote: [Receiver], then [Standby]. [Receiver], [ZONE2], then [Standby], [Receiver], [ZONE3], then [Standby]. You should NOT see any lights on the ONKYO except maybe one red led near the power button.
2. Pull the power plug out of the back of the ONKYO, and leave unplugged for 20-30 seconds. Turning off any power center it is connected to isn't enough. You MUST unplug the power from the back of the ONKYO for 20-30 seconds.
3. Reconnect the power cord to the ONKYO.
4. Using the remote, set ZONE1 to a video source known to be working. If you don't see video, try leaving the power cord off for a longer period.

I know it sounds too simple to work, but that's what brought the video back for me the few times the video stopped displaying. Hope it works for you.

No display on my sr875 the next time i turned it on..i have no clue waht happend..it was just working fine yesterday,now, it suddenly shows one issue that needs to be resolve..i did everything i cud do but...


The 10 Ohms resistor R9304 in series with the the 44V display power supply was open.

How to find it:
Remove the to cover.
On the right hand side of the front panel you will see on the side a wide white flat cable going toward the back of the receiver.
Beside it is a 4 black wire band connecting the front panel to a 3x4cm power PCB which is parallel with the front panel inside the receiver (attached to the front frame).
It has visible on the left side a diode bridge and a fuse - above the fuse you can find the R9304, a SFR16 package (1x3.5mm) marked BrownBlackBlack.
Check continuity.Replace if open wit a 1W resistor
Good job ONKYO, save 1/3 of a penny...

For the DIY:
As an added step I replaced the R9304 with a 2W 47R resistor, replaced the series transistor regulator Q9301 (tall TO92) with a bigger package (isolated TO220) and one of the two series 22V zenners from the base - D9310 - with a 10V one.
Output voltage drops from 44V to 34V, display is slightly dimmer but overall stress is down.

Good luck!

Technics ST-X302L tuner - Unit not powering on


i have the same unit and a similar problem, after a fall of the tuner on the floor while i was cleaning my room, first times the st-x302l was powering fine but after some minuts it quit alone.. now (i dont know why) it remains on but if there is an interruption of electricity it dont turn on anymore, it turn on only by removing the metal chassis and moving random the electronics.. i think it has some electronic contact or circuit break.. i brought it to a specialist in electronics and he told me the reparation would be too expensive so i prefer to try fix it by myself.
