Power won't stay on for Pioneer Receiver Model VSX 3900S

The power on my receiver won't stay on. If I want to switch from Tuner to CD it won't do that either. Its as if its frozen on the Tuner setting. Any help would be awesome :)

    exact same problem for me as well, sometimes the power button has to be pressed hard for it to turn on and then it shuts off if the receiver gets bumped

Sounds like the power button is hanging up on it, mine does it every now and then, check the power button to see if its hanging when you turn it on..or just use the remote (if you have the remote)

Not a permanent solution but this is how i got it working... keep pressing the power button different ways (ie. hard, soft, etc) and when you do get it, dont touch it for a decent period of time, like 15 minutes. Then turn it off and on, it should turn on this time wo a problem and if it does then it souldnt be frozen anymore. Otherwise, if i didnt wait 15 minutes, it would be frozen and if a certain button was pressed or the receiver is moved, it will just shut off. ANother piece of advice, once you get it working, leave it on!

My pioneer receiver powers on but the volume doesn't work. Why is that??


Does this receiver function as only a tuner or does it have speaker outputs? If it has speaker outputs, then there might be switches for turning them on and/or if 5.1 surround sound, sometimes there is a bridge on the back so extra amplification can be added and if that bridge is missing, the tuner signals are sent on to the internal amplifier. On one of mine, that bridge was a 2 wires bent to fit into RCA jacks on the rear of the unit.

How to make a Pioneer vsx-816k/s last longer


I really don't recommend this product to anyone, or any newer pioneer products for that matter (except the elite line). This model has the "hybrid" design, which is a very flawed design. At first the speakers will start cutting in and out, and then some of them wont work at all, and then the receiver will flash "overload" and the receiver will go into a permanent protection, all because the receiver cant handle the resistance of the speakers(doesn't matter what speaker it is). Once in protect mode, press ENTER+ ADVANCED SURROUND and it will tell you what the problem is causing it to stay in protect mode. In order to keep this from happening, use external amps. Pioneer wants around 500 dollars to fix it if its out of warranty, it will cost at least 50 to fix it yourself, in most cases it will cost 150 to fix it yourself (most cases all 3 power modules will go out, or as pioneer calls them, power packs). If you have an older vsx model (50s-80s) then it is usually worth fixing. If your having problems with pioneer vsx 3600, 3700s, 3800, or 3900s, send me an email at Joshadk@embarqmail.com and i will help you the best i can

My pionner audio video multi changer receiver vsx-498 shuts off then turns on when the receiver is on how can i fix it


The problem is not clear. Does the unnamed multichanger turn of/on wit hthe VSX-498 or is the VSX-489 having power issues?

Is the power cord of the multichanger plugged into the back of the VSX maybe the outlet is SWITCHED with the power state of the VSX..

No audio output from Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver


If it's under warranty..get a new one.
It's an internal breakdown ...tech service only.
