20 Most Recent Pioneer VSX-D409 Questions & Answers


Hello. I have a Pioneer VSX-D409 receiver and when I plug my head phones in, the music still plays through the speakers. How do I stop that?

The Pioneer Electronics VSX-D409 speakers can be turned off by pressing the Speaker button the top button to the right of the headphone jack. (The Dolby label is in between.) Pressing the Speaker button toggles the speaker setting in the following order A > B > A+B > Off. (A and B are the two zones of speakers that the receiver be connected.) See page 30 of the manual available from Pioneer here: https://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pio/pe/vgn/images/portal/cit_11221/49512operating_instructions_VSX-D409_20023151517309470.pdf . I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

Need remote code to add to universal remote

More info would be good. Do you need codes to use the original pioneer remote to control another componant, or do you need codes for another remote to control the pioneer?

Im trying to hook my

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.

Go here for it. Register and search for things, like vsx-d409...

How do I hook up my ipod to my pioneer vsx d409 ?

The best way is to use a 3,5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable like this:
You can easily find one like this at your local audio/electronics shop or buy one on line. You have to connect the RCA at any free stereo input at the back of your Pioneer (like aux or cd). Take a look at this picture:
After this you can use the 3.5mm stereo jack for connecting not only your ipod but every mp3 player or other device has an earphone jack. Just plug the 3.5mm jack at the earphone jack and rise the volume at the portable device up to the middle of the volume range and set your Pioneer input selector at the stereo input that you connect the 2 RCA before (aux or cd)

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Sub Woofer works but it won't when hooked up to the receiver

Yes, go to your menu then setup then speakers then subwoofer, it's probably in "LFE" it should give you the option of Sub, LFE, or Both. that should do the trick. Also check the crossover point and season to taste. While your at it; there should also be a setting for speaker level, toggle down to sub and adjust the sub out level, it's probably at it's minimum setting. Hope this helps
