If it shuts down after turning up you have a speaker and or speaker wire issue, Try disconnectiong all speakers and see if it shuts down then, If it shuts down with no speakers connected then you do have a receiver problem

Testimonial: "I know its not the speakers. It has no power with everything disconnected to it. I'm thinking it's a fuse but I don't know what to look for. Thanks for your thoughts though"

Pioneer elite sx-a6 keeps going to standby


I had a receiver that would shut off when I had the volume too loud. It was caused because the speakers were using too much juice. Does it work with less speakers or at low low volumes? Then this may be the case.

I solved it by getting a different receiver.

if it has nothing to do with volume then check your manual and settings for a auto standby feature that may be just putting the receiver to standby after a set time.

Pioneer receiver sx 316 shuts off after a few moments of being turned on


Mine is having this problem now.

Tried re-inserting the speaker wires.
Tried resetting before it shuts off.
Tried disassembling but solder joins are still nice.

It still shuts off soon after power up. Time to spend money? :(

I have tv hooked up to the pioneer but the TV will not play its sound through the speakers? what Am I doing wrong? I have the DVD hooked to the Pioneer and it works fine.


Is the unidentified TV a sound source from the SX-315's perspective? Is it's audio output enabled whene the TV volume is down? Would the Cable Box be a BETTER source?

Can't find part needed.(Pioneer SX 1250 volume control part # ACV-169. Is there a replacement


Your only recourse at this time is to check with local servicers that may have one around in their old stock. Or check Ebay for a parts machine that you can salvage one from. I believe that the volume control from an SX-850 will be the same, so you can search for one of those as well.

Good luck.

"muting" shows up the screen and I no longer get volume, can not the muting off as I can not see where I would change that setting.


Are you sure it's not the TV telling you that it's muted? I went down the tubes on that one myself.

The receiver's Mute can be defeated by just rotating the volume knob upward. Ditto with TV's.

Constant Buzz coming from SX-255r


Power source harmonics. Or its power supply regulation. Check also if input line is touching something.

I have a Pioneer sx 315 and at lower volume levels it plays fine. However if you turn the volume up high, like 30 or better the unit turns itself off. Had the unit for a couple of years and it has just...


The unit is overheating, or at least thinks it is overheating.

Blow the dust out of the thing and see if that helps. If not, you have a thermistor that is bad or is going bad. Probably the thermistor nearest/on the audio amp transistor's heatsink.

Power problem?


???

1. Is the head unit powering the speakers directly or through an amp?
2. What ohm load (4,8,) per channel and how many speakers?
3. Does it do it with the bass set all the way down?

If you have access to a voltmeter see what the voltage is on the yellow and black wires when it is diming. It should be stable ~ 13.5v with car on. if its < 10v when dimming either there is:

1. Shorted speaker lead.
2. Bad ground to radio.
3. loose power feed to radio.
4. Ohm load below 4 ohms, causing the eccess current draw.

Sound shuts off, sub still works


That is a common problem with this radio, for it can not go to loud without going down in volume or shutting down.

a little bit foolish thing: see if you have both the speaker channels (A and B) down. if you have both down it doesn't work - didn't for me.. and obviously make sure you have the right letter down - same outpout as your boxes
