Question about Pioneer VSX-D458 Receiver

2 Answers

Speaker connectors not holding

Receiver works great; speaker connectors for speakers A & B seem to have lost their "spring" and will not hold the speaker wires in place. Can these be replaced by a consumer? Can the new binding posts be used?

    I have ordered the replacement parts as that seems to be the best long-term solution. Now I have my fingers crossed that I can replace the part without too much trouble!

I use to have that problem and what i did was to strip more wire. Then fold the bare wire over a few times and try poking it in there. Maybe you can wrap some foil around the wires also. Must be foil with metal on both sides, not a ciggerette pack. You may also try a pencil eraser. Cut it in the shape of a wedge and try and push it into where the springs are this could work similar to the spring.

I you wanna rip out the old clips and make a mounting plate for the binding post or banna plugs then go for it BUT I would recomend to contact pioneer at the link below first to see what they cost as its always good to keep things with original parts.http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pna/co...

    Thats trick with putting more on the wire is only a tempoary fix and wont last. once the springs start to give then its downhill from there. yopu could even take a soldering iron and jam it inside the connectop and let solder flow in and insert a wire and solder it in but that as well is not a way I would fix someting! If your gonna fix it fix it righ the first time.

    Good Call Wenny!!! and shouldnt be any trouble as long as you dont cut off the wires to short as they assy that unit with the right lenth needed I would go in and cut the wire wraps and restrenths so you can pull the wires out a bit. Good Luck

SOURCE: Pioneer VSX-505S Subwoofer Installation

That type of subwoofer is not used with this receiver. This receiver actually outputs no power for a subwoofer, therefore only needs a plain ol' rca signal wire. This is due to the fact that you need a powered sub... one that you plug in to the wall and it has its own built in amp. you simply run an rca from yyour 505s to that sub.

SOURCE: pioneer receiver vsx d814 amp error

The Pioneer VSX-D814 has a couple of Power Hybrid bricks that do all the power amplification. These are the infamous PAC011A. You should have 2 of those in your receiver.

If the amp detects some unusual activities, it may shut down the unit to prevent damage. “Amp Err” usually means some DC in the output.

Disconnect all the speakers and turn on the unit; if it acts normal, reconnect speakers one set at a time very carefully. If the unit still shows the error message you can try to reset it. If the reset works, again carefully reconnect the speakers connections. If the reset does not recover the normal operation of the unit, you may have one of the PAC011A damaged, and the unit will need repair.
The reset can be done by disconnecting the unit power cord for a few minutes, then plug it in and press “FRONT ENTER key + ADVANCED SURROUND key” continuously for 2sec.

Good luck

SOURCE: pioneer vsx-519 no sound from center and surround

Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.

Acoustic Research Model AW871 wireless sterio speakers


Your connection between the AR transmitter and the ONKYO receiver sounds solid. I'd guess it's the wireless speakers that are the wrong point, or at least that's what I'd look at first. Doing a bit of research, I noticed a couple minor points. First, these seem prone to RF interference from other RF devices. Have to tried switching channels on them? Second, someone reported theirs would not work properly unless the speakers were turned on just before the transmitter, and turned off shortly after the transmitter. Apparently you have to hold the button on the front in for 5 seconds to turn the speakers on or off. I know that's rather basic, but it's been a few days and no one else has responded, so I figured we should start somewhere.

Speakers are cutting out. Checked connections to receiver and they seem good. Wiggled ports on back of receiver and speakers worked, but cut off again as soon as I let go of them.


You might have bad solder connections where the speaker terminals attach to the circuit board inside the case. Mounting screws inside holding circuit boards in place may also have become loose. Often there are ground connections that depend on these screws being tight.

You may also want to check your speaker wires. The wire may be making a poor connection at the terminal. Try cutting a couple of inches off the end, stripping the wire and reconnecting.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a yamaha htr 5890. I would like to hook up


You are probably connected to the pre-out jacks. These are not amplified. Connect them to the B speaker outputs(screw down connectors). If that won't work (and it should), you can connect to the "Presence" speaker connections(spring loaded connections).

Broken speaker connectors


Yes you can get relacements, you need to try Maplins or similar type of electronic store. You can also get connectors that will solder on the ends of the speaker wire and will push into the speaker connectors, the common name for these is Banana plugs, this may be a cheaper solution.

Connection between harmon receiver and A-bus in wall speakers...


There is a CAT5/RJ45 A-Bus interface on the back of the HK AVR 435. That needs to connect to your A-BUS "hub". HK has two hub products: ABH-4000 and ABH-4 (older). Then CAT5 cable can be run from this hub to Wall-installed room-specific controls. HK has the AB-2 product, but any ABus compatible wall control will work. From the wall control, you wire regular audio cable to the speakers. So, some of the questions/issues to solve are: where do the existing wires go that are connected to the in-wall speakers? Typically that location is where to place your in-wall volume and source controls. Then the CAT5 gets wired from those controls back to the hub. And all that's required is a single CAT5 from the AVR to the Hub.

FINDING THE CORD TO THE SYSTEM FROM THE SPEAKER


From looking at the manual for your surround sound system
http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/93/GVT0150-001D.pdf

It looks like it just uses the regular spring-loaded clips to hold the speaker wire in place. All you need is regular copper braided speaker wire, nothing fancy. Then you strip about half an inch of insulation off the end of the wires, and pull back the spring loaded clip and put the wires in, then release the clip so it clamps down on the bare metal.

Speaker wire you can get from anywhere that sells the actual systems. I know places like Radio Shack (The Source by Circuit City) sells spools of it. Any other electronics store probably sells it too. It's common stuff.

Speaker wire tabs for neg/pos connections in rear of speaker


The usual spring-loaded speaker terminals can be bought from constructor supply catalogues or salvaged from broken or obsolete equipment.

It should be possible for anyone with a moderate practical aptitude to replace the terminal if the original is beyond repair. It is a largely intuitive process.

Maybe with the drop the radio speake is out of place, did try to open the radio and find if the speaker is in its correct place? The speaker uses a spring connector and this can be out of place. Good luck
