Tuner Keeps Turning Off when a Loud Noise is Played
I have a Pioneer VSX-519V and have some Sony speakers hooked up as a 3:1 surround sound. My problem is that when my family and I watch a movie, our tuner shuts completely off after a loud noise is played. I have the Treble turned to its' lowest setting but still any loud noise just turns off the tuner. Could it be that my speakers cannot handle the tuner or what?

Most problems are menu settings, because surround modes can be complex and confusing. Verify what surround input type you are using. FM tuner will not play center spkr unless put into a simulate or expand stereo mode. Do other surround speakers work other than normal L/R stereo mode? You can try redoing your auto surround setup (MCACC) or going to the manual speaker setup and verifying speaker is turned on in menu system. Rechech you listening mode setups at Pages 33,38,39 in your manual. Try another speaker and wiring on center output. Try Different surround inputs, some manufactuers have had problems with their DTS and HDMI boards. Otherwise take to repair.
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.
You guys mentioned the reset via the front panel, and I tried that with this very same issue on my VSX-822-k and it worked!
thought I would post the instructions for anyone else that lands here:
Reset the main unit if the receiver is generally not operating correctly. Switch the receiver into standby mode. Hold down the "BAND" button while pressing the "STANDYBY/ON" button for about two seconds. When "Reset?" appears in the display window, press the "AUTO SURROUND/ STREAM DIRECT" button. "OK?" appears in the display window. Press "STEREO/A.L.C." to confirm. "OK" appears in the window. The system has been reset.
I'd disconnect the surrounds and try to bring up the receiver again. If it works you may have only cooked the surrounds. If not, you've possibly cooked the receiver. Disconnect all speakers and try again. If it still won't work then you need a tech to look at it.
What make/model speakers were you trying to set up?
You can hook them up either way, the banana jacks are good for hooking two speakers to one terminal (ie one through the botton, one banana) but the electrical connection is the same either way. Sometimes the banana capable jacks are on speakers A and speakers B, and the surround don't accept banana plugs, your stuck with how your reciever is wired.
