Question about Pioneer VSX-D557
Recently I noticed my sub was not working with my set up. At first I thought it was the cable connecting the sub to the receiver, I got a new one but that didn't work either. I connected the speaker A wires to the sub then to the speakers and that got my bass back. I'm still not sure why the pre-out doesn't work though. On the receiver itself when I select channel output with the remote I use to get the options for centre speaker, rear speaker and then subwoofer. Now when I select the the channel select option the subwoofer option doesn't even appear anymore. Do I need to reset the receiver to get this option back to get the preout working again? If so how do I do that? Or is the pre out for the sub just burnt out and not usable anymore?

I've got the same model and the pre out transistor needs to be replaced,
sometimes you can get it to work by unplugging the reciever and the pre out
then plug in the reciever and plug the pre out in a couple of times or so untill it comes on
or unplug the amp from the wall then plug in the pre out , turn on the reciever wait for sounds to come on then plug in the amp.
if that don't do it the pre out transistor needs to be replaced

RTFM. The manual is available at retrevo.com.
Some setup is required, like telling the receiver you have a subwoofer and setting speaker levels. Modern avr's are NOTplug and play.
