Loose connection or cold solder and cleaning problem this is the main caused..Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....

Good luck:

Pioneer elite sx-a6 keeps going to standby


I had a receiver that would shut off when I had the volume too loud. It was caused because the speakers were using too much juice. Does it work with less speakers or at low low volumes? Then this may be the case.

I solved it by getting a different receiver.

if it has nothing to do with volume then check your manual and settings for a auto standby feature that may be just putting the receiver to standby after a set time.

Many surround amps have test tones to that go to each speaker to test if the wiring is good. If your model doesn't have them, use a THX rated DVD. This will have on a menu a THX test tones for speakers. If the connections are good, then some amps have the ability to switch off speakers. Check your manual to see if this is the case. If you have Surround signals going in to your receiver everything is set up right, then the only other cause is a power amp failure for the effected channels.

Bass cut off when volume is too high


When an amplifier shuts the Bass off that means its going into protection mode otherwise it will burn out the outputs. One way is to turn your gains down, Pioneer amps are not the best amps for bass out there, they are more for car speakers, I personally wont use a pioneer amp to run my subwoofers especially if they are hard driven subs like JL , Kicker Solo's and MTX subs. But for now just turn the gains down to 3/4 and that should help u, you can also install a fan to keep your amp cooler, if this never happened before in 5 yrs and now it does then that means your amp is just tired and the inside components are overheating easily, thats common with Pioneer and Sony amps.

Good luck buddy.

DJM 400 Keep going into over on the channel and the master volume


To keep your levels down keep the TRIM don which is the gray knob. Also keep the hi, mid, and low knobs at the medium level. The control cables are for using the fader start function.
