Have you configured A-1 or V-2 (which ever you are using) to receive optical (the default is analog stereo).
From the manual:
1) switch to A-1 (e.g.).
2) press SYS then SETUP.
3) press < or > until you see 'INPUT' is the display.
4) Use the ^ or v buttons to select input to use (INPUT OPTICAL).
5) Press ENTER to complete the setting.
I would like to do exactly this on my DV55 but I do not have an original remote. My replacement cannot do step 2.

I can't find a picture of it/them but in general you want to get the BEST audio to your hifi electronics and let stereo-only TV-related audio go TO the TV itself.

FACT: TV speakers are there as a convenience. If they were comparable to hifi electronics and speakers we wouldn't by anything but a TV, right?

CORRELARY: TV is not itself an audio source. Everything it displays and projects soundwise comes from somewhere else at a higher 'fi' than it can reproduce.

So, get your BEST satellite or cable box digital audio out through either coaxial or optical cables to the Pioneer, if it has compatible inputs. This way you can decode multichannel audio broadcasts in electronics designedf for it.

There will also be a stereo pair of RCA jacks at the Sat/Cable boxes that you can run to the TV if it has multiple analog audio inputs. That way you can watch and hear CNN or the Weather on the TV without cranking up the Pioneer.

If you MUST have a TV audio feed to the Pioneer, use its RCA analog audio out to any available input. The TV may have internals controls for volume at those jacks. I recommend choosing a FIXED output level so you can turn the TV speakers down or off and still listen through the Pioneer. But it will be in vanilla stereo only.

Hi, I have the same system and had the same problem with the drive door refusing to open when you press the open button. I fixed it quite easily, unplug every thing, on the rear of the unit, remove the two screws holding the top rear cover on. This will reveal two plastic securing clips for the front top cover, release these and the top cover will slide off easily. You will find that there are two bent over hook wires, where the button is and if you look at the under side of the top cover, you will see two metal contact strips that are suppose to touch these wires. All i did was bend the wires out a little so that they made better contact with the sensor strips. Put it all back together again and hey, it worked right away. Good luck, Richard

Typically no. The device should plug into the wall, and amplify the signal by itself. It should have one or more input RCA jacks in the back for various external devices like VCRs, CD Players or your TV box, and it should have several output ports that the speaker wires and sub woofer plug in to. You shouldn't have to worry about the signal strength or amplifying it.

Just so long as you use the speakers that were designed for the unit. If you decided to use third party speakers with a higher impedance, then you would need an amp.

Have either of you looked at the quick setup instructions in the manual? It would have basic instructions on setting up a simple home theature, and if an amp is necessary, it would be indicated there.

I have the same problem with my XV-DV333. Search on inet and this came up: "... Pick Out One Of These! But I am unable to select any region using the remote control or the buttons on the player. What do I do? You need to get a Pioneer Service Remote. When you have it you should press: [ESC] [A.MON] [Numbers], where [Numbers] correspond to the region number you want to set. Be aware that you can only set this once, if you set the wrong region number for your area, there is no turning back. " WTF! Am I supposed to get a service remote to get this thing working again. I haven't done anything and it worked before:/

Wow , with the unit sitting for two years, you could have all sorts of problems now. Most likely back when the unit stopped working, the spindle motor was bad, as that was the problem on almost all of these types of CD players. Now though, if the power supply capacitors are not shot, the laser assembly could also be bad. My best advice on this unit? Can it and start out with new equipment. Good Luck

Hi Ravindran K, the first thing to determine if it is a problem generated by defective components inside the equipment or outside
To determine this, I suggest you unplug the Pioneer and disconnect all the speakers, then reconnect it to the power outlet and turn it on.
If the fault continues, it is very possible that the power supply and the output stage are bad, in this case consult a specialized technical service
If you do not fail, it may be that some or some cables or speakers that may be defective
To verify this, look at the cables, which are in good condition and with the connection ends with the wires properly threaded
Then go connecting the speakers one by one and test the operation
Take the test and comment
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Ravindran K, lo primero que hay que determinar si es un problema generado por componentes defectuosos dentro del equipo o de afuera
Para determinar esto, te sugiero, desenchufa el Pioneer y desconecta todos los parlantes, luego vuelve a conectarlo al toma corrientes y enciendelo
Si continua la falla, es muy posible que la fuente de alimentaci?n y o la etapa de salida se encuentren mal, en este caso consulta un servicio t?cnico especializado
Si no hace la falla, puede ser que alg?n o algunos cables o parlantes que puedan estar defectuosos
Para verificar esto, observa los cables, que se encuentren en buen estado y con los extremos de conexi?n con los alambres correctamente enroscados
Luego ve conectando de a uno los parlantes y prueba el funcionamiento
Haz la prueba y comenta
Saludos Franco Dosil

Hi Ramon, as you say, the protection circuit is working, you would have a problem in the power supply or in the audio outputs of speakers
I suggest you disconnect, all the speakers and test if the fault continues, if it does not continue, connect the speakers one by one and test until the possible fault is detected
If you disconnect and stay the same, I suggest you look for a specialized technical service
If you have knowledge and technical expertise, I give you the link to download the service manual of your Pioneer
I hope you can solve the problem
Regards Franco Dosil

Hola Ram?n, por lo que comentas, esta trabajando el circuito de protecci?n, tendr?as un problema en la fuente de alimentaci?n o en las salidas de audio de parlantes
Te sugiero desconectar, todos los parlantes y probar si continua la falla, si no sigue, conecta de a uno los parlantes y prueba hasta detectar la posible falla
Si desconectas y sigue igual, te sugiero busque un servicio t?cnico especializado
Si tienes conocimientos y pericia t?cnica, te paso el link para que descargues el manual de servicio de tu Pioneer
Espero puedas resolver el problema

Hi Joshyinoman, your subwoofer, is active, that is, it has its own amplifier, just take the bass audio signal from your Pioneer
Check if it is properly plugged into the power outlet, if the signal cable is properly and correctly connected to the Subwoofer Out of the Pioneer
If all this is well, then you have a problem with the internal amplifier, if so, look for a specialized technical service
I hope you can solve the problem
Regards Franco Dosil

Hola Joshyinoman, tu subwoofer, es activo, es decir tiene amplificador propio, solo toma la se?al de audio de graves de tu Pioneer
Controla si esta bien enchufado al toma corriente, si el cable de se?al, esta bien y correctamente conectado en la salida Subwoofer Out, del Pioneer
si todo esto esta bien, entonces tienes un problema con el amplificador interno, si es asi, busca un servicio tecnico especializado
Espero puedas resolver el problema
Saludos Franco Dosil
