Broken connector in subwoofer connection on receiver

How do I remove the broken piece of my monster RCA cable that remains inside the subwoofer connection of my receiver? Or, is there another output channel I can use for my subwoofer from my Pioneer VSX-91TXH Elite receiver? My subwoofer is an Infinity, powered with low level input for left and right, and high level left and right (which I've never used)

    I was able to remove the broken connector and plug the cable into the subwoofer connection on the receiver, however, I'm not getting any sound from the subwoofer. The green ready light is on...but no response when I play a blu ray movie. Any ideas?

    I was able to vacuum out the broken piece. thanks! But, the subwoofer is not responding now. Do I need to reset something?

Dear sir/madam,

Take all that bulk cable and turn it into something useful with a connector kit. Or replace a broken connector instead of buying a whole new cable. you're not supposed to try and pull them straight off. Instead, twist them clockwise while firmly (but carefully) pulling straight out. They'll come off with no problem.


thanks
good luck

The problem you now have can be one of two things most likely. One is, the RCA jack on the receiver has some broken solder connection causing no output from it. Two, the Pioneer receiver is not set properly with the sub-woofer output activated.

You can check the sub-woofer output to see if it is activated thru the menu system.

The solder connection being broken would need to be checked visually by removing the board the sub woofer RCA jack is on.

If both of these do not work for you or you can not do it, then you can try hooking the sub-woofer up differently. The only other option for you would be, to connect the subwoofer with the speaker level outputs of your receiver from the front "A" speakers. Get some speaker wire and connect them directly from the receiver "A" speaker output and run those speaker wires into the speaker wire inputs of the sub-woofer. Then you should have a speaker wire output from the sub-woofer to run to the 2 front speakers that were connected to the "A" speakers previously. That way you have volume control over the sub-woofer when you use the volume control on the Pioneer.

There is another way to connect this, but you would not have volume control over the sub-woofer with the Pioneer, only thru the sub-woofer gain control. That would not be a very good way, but you can do it by connecting the RCA jacks from the sub-woofer input to the TAPE REC output of the receiver. You could at least do this so you can check and make sure the sub-woofer is working properly.

You most likely have some broken solder joints on the RCA output of the Pioneer, since you had a broken RCA connector stuck in it, it would be likely that it also broke the solder connection on the board where the RCA jack is connected.

    By the way, you can not reset this receiver by unplugging it for 30 minutes. You would need to unplug it for about a week or two for it to reset. It is not like many other types electronic equipment where unplugging it will reset the unit.



    It has a capacitor in the circuit for the micro that stays charged for at least a week or more even after unplugging it. This capaitor is used like a battery in the micro's circuit and is of suficient value to keep the memory settings with the unit unplugged.



    Go ahead and try to reset it by unplugging it, you will notice that the tuner will still be set to the same station after you plug it back in. That is proof that it did not reset. After a reset, the tuner will be set at some random frequency, not the station you left it on when you unplugged it.



    There is no reset procedure for this model, the only way to reset it, is to be able to do a hard reset on the micro. This means you must ground out the supply voltage momentarily at the micro, or to force the reset pin on the micro to change states from it's current state.



    I work at an authorized Pioneer service center and I actually fix these type of units every day, so my knowledge of this type of thing is pretty extensive.

Hi,
As per the user manual , the receiver has only one sub-woofer connector. The other alternative is to use the digital audio output for the speakers . That would mean either you have to change the speakers or get a conversion box that would connect your analog speakers to the digital output.
The other thing that can be done is to replace the sub-woofer connector. The same can be done by a radio repair guy or you can take it an authorised pioneer repair centre.


Thanks

How do I remove the broken piece of my monster RCA cable that remains inside the subwoofer connection of my receiver


if you are mechanically inclined you can take the cover off the receiver and use a paperclip. Bend the paperclip to an "L" shape. Puch it in the terminal from the inside to expel the broken prong, then reclose the case. If not try a strong magnet such as a mechanics pick up tool

DSW PRO 600 not getting signal from receiver. Why?


You don't name the electronics, which can be the source of the problem. See #3.

1. If you suspect the cable why don't you just swap in another RCA cable? BTW: there's no such thing as a "subwoofer" cable. Monster makes their money on those beliefs. Cables don't wear out but they can go bad if one or more conductors fails. Oxides devolp at either end which can inhibit conductivity. Remove each end and reinsert it with a twisting motion.

2. Maybe. You need to ensure the sub is defined. Run speaker level check. If no sound at the sub, prove the LFE/sub channel has output by running the RCA cable to a recorder or your TV (low volume). If there's no signal, duh, no speaker will work with it.

3. Mmm, not if it's exhibiting the same problem as the old one and the Polk 450. Have you looked at the setting of the Standby/Auto/On Switch? And the Power Mode LED's? Red is bad.

Monster Cable RCA Cables are generally the best, they produce great sound while at the same time reducing the low frequency dirty power noise..

Best hook- up Polk psw10 sub woofer to yamaha rx-v663 receiver


You will not need to y connect your subwoofer, if you have only one RCA sub out on your receiver the other end of the RCA connector cable goes into the left input on most powered subs, there is no loss of signal, the option exist as some receiver do sport a double RCA sub out.

Cable connector broken


You can buy replacement antenna jacks for this. What you have to do is remove the tuner and it's shields, then unsolder the little tab off the board of the tuner which is what remains when they break off. Then you can resolder the new jack in place and the center pin back to the board of the tuner.

Connecting a Yamaha VX7 Subwoofer on my Yamaha HTR 5730 AV Receiver


Hello srqwrk,

You can connect the VX7 to the 5730 using an RCA Y cable like the one shown in the picture below. You get your one connection for the receiver and 2 for the VX7. These are available at any electronics store. Remember that the cable should be long enough to go from the receiver to where subwoofer will be placed.
Hope this helps. Let me know.

just connect your subwoofer mono RCA to your amp sub single out rca connector. you do not need to megre all those 4terminals into one. in fact internal circuit of those 4rca are merging inside to one since the sub uses only a single amp. 4inputs was meant for sources with multiple sub out
