What isn't it doing - audio, video, both? What model is the TV. How are you trying to do it. Do you have the manual? The simplest hookup is to just have the a single RCA cable from "TO TV Monitor" to a Video In on the TV. Modifications may be required depending on what else you have for video sources and how they're attached.

SOURCE: Pioneer Amp VSX-D409 Volume

I have a VSX D508 Looks just like the VSX D409. Had the same prob with the volume control when I bought it. I first tried the cleaner. Better than what it was but didn't compleatly solve the problem and before long it was getting worse again.
It does have a rotary encoder instead of the traditional varible restance volume control. I finally broke down and removed it from the board and lightly sanded the contacts with fine sandpaper.
This involves removing the whole face from the main board and chassis. Not that bad, a couple screws and some ribbon jumpers and latches and it's off.
Next carefully pull the volume control straight off the shaft, remove the nut under it and lay it face down on a soft surface. Remove the screws that hold the circuit board to the face and slowley seperate the too, you'll have to release some latches also to sepperate them.
If you replace the volume control with a new one or clean the old one you have to go this far because it's soldered to the front side of the board. Yes, it has to be de-soldered from the board.
This control was not designed to be dissassembled but I was able to carefully open it and remove the shaft to totaly expose the contacts for a complete even couple of passes with the sandpaper.
I did have to use some 5-minute opoxy when I put it back together because I couldnt get the metal tabs to close as tightly as they were before it was opened.
I soldered in the volume control, put it back together and it's worked perfectly ever since. I don't know how much pioneer wants for a new one but I can tell you they wanted $69 plus shipping for a new remote for my receiver. And with this style of volume control you might be at their mercy as far as finding one from another source that fits.

Have a load uncontrollable volume with my Pioneer VSX-d409 receiver. A suggestion for a low volume problem was to correct with tuner cleaner (potentiometer ) problem. Can this be corrected by me as perhaps...


Your problem is not with FixYa, but rather the volume control potentiometer on your Pioneer receiver. As for whether you can fix it yourself, that depends upon your ability to disassemble the receiver to gain access to the volume control and make the repair

Hdmi has no volume from sources


Not surprising. The VSX-D409 doesn't have HDMI.

Of course, the speakers are also a part of this. I imagine they have manuals, too.

Volume problem with VSX-D409


Had the same problem. I had to replace the volume contol. It was inside the receiver behind the knob. It has a part# on it. Mine was part# AWX7386 (control assembly) from Pioneer.com. If you can figure out how to open the case than you can change this piece. Good luck

Popping noise and loss of sound


Check the preamp Coupling Capacitor, which might have lost its value, or might have leaky dielectric.
