Had it repaired once during the first year, been rock solid since. Passed it on to my brother recently and upgraded to an Onkyo 929.

I want to know how is ur guys daily usage of tat amp..... For me i use it almost everyday for around 3 or 4 years already whout a single problem but yesterday something weird coming out. I am playing music through CD and switch the input to TV and i see the display on my tv turn pink and a loud hissing+humming sound come out from my right speaker. what could be the problem? as i knw if it is the HDMI board, it is nt worth the fix anymore. I am plugging my satellite receiver into the component and output thru HDMI into my tv. after i off everything and trun on, normal again and i try n try and try, but the situation nt happen anymore. Kinda worry at this point. could it be the receiver or the satellite decoder itself? and did u guys hv the same problem like when u switch input from DVD to blu ray whout turning off both the DVD and Blu ray but u switch the input on the receiver, there is a green flash on the tv for jus 1 second. Is that normal? Thanks:con fused:

I don't recall exactly what went bad, it would just go directly in protection mode when I would turn it on. We have an authorized Pioneer repair shop here in San Antonio, TX, took me about a week to get it fixed.

So you had one instance of a problem with a pink screen / static into your system, then restarting everything it went away and you haven't seen it since?

I think until it happens again, I wouldn't worry. HDMI is a touchy interface, it could be that the plug reseated itself and is working fine.

I'd make sure your HDMI connections are well set, then just enjoy it. If it happens again, then you can experiment with it.

Hi everyone! My first post here. I've had the VSX-1019AH for about 4 years now, and up until about 6 months ago, everything worked flawlessly. I use all 4 HDMI inputs (Cable, PS3, Apple TV and Media Player) and the HDMI output to my TV. No other inputs are used.

Well, about 6 months ago, after turning on the TV, I noticed there was no sound coming from the speakers connected to the VSX-1019AH (the TV speakers are turned off on purpose). I turned everything off (without unplugging), wiggled a bit the wires in the back (I originally thought something was lose) and voi-la, it worked. I never seemed to find out exactly what the problem was. At first I thought the cleaning lady had moved the VSX-1019AH and disconnected something. Then I thought it was the speaker connection (Bose Acoustimass w/ subwoofer). Then the HDMI output.

Yesterday, it finally gave out. I tried everything but no sound whatsoever comes out. I unplugged everything (including power) and left it like that until morning. I re=plugged the speakers, but there is no sound. Not even the white noise from Manual Speaker configuration. Not even when plugging headphones, tuner, RCA cables with iPod, nada, niet, niente!

And I know both the devices and TV are working, as I had to plug them directly and it worked. Moreover, I know the audio is in fact being read by the VSX-1019AH, as when there are 5.1 surround programing, it shows all the speakers, it recognizes Dolby broadcasts, etc.

I understand about connections, but not about electronics. Is there such thing in the VSX-1019AH's board (such as an audio output transistor/chip) that could have been set lose over time? Like when I moved it in the past I got it working, but now it's completely off?

Sorry about the long post guys...

Thanks, C.

Try a hard reset of the system. I no longer have this unit, but I do recall once having a no audio issue out of the blue and that fixed it for me.

You mean pressing Enter + Standby? If so, did that to no avail...

Quick question: if I were to just plug my Receiver to an outlet and set it to Tuner (without the antenna) and plug NOTHING ELSE, not even the speakers, would I be able to hear the white noise (as there's no antenna) by using a set of headphones? 'Cause I tried that too and ZIP...
fmedrano1977's Avatar fmedrano1977 03:42 PM 08-28-2014
Yeah I meant that and you should hear white noise on tuner with no antenna. Might be in need of repair.

Thanks for the quick responses... I'm thinking of upgrading my receiver. What do you suggest?
fmedrano1977's Avatar fmedrano1977 03:50 PM 08-28-2014
If your happy with that one, can't go wrong with the up to date one, the VSX-1123 I believe. I myself went with an Onkyo NR-929 which is getting Dolby Atmos in a firmware update.

Hi phil84, don't know if this will help but try this. Press and hold the "Multi-Zone On/Off" and the "Tune Down (-)" buttons for about 4-5 seconds and see if it power on.

Could try removing the power cord for a few hours.

Ever since storm last night when running either directv or dvd player through reciever I get mode not supported on my tv. Direct contecting directv to tv or dvd to tv does not do these. Seems as if electric surge changed resolution setting. Do you know how I can correct this? Thank you

I found the problem and is not the receiver problem..... is the satellite receiver tat connected to it went out..... my 919 is strong until today
Nicholas Tang 03:00 AM 10-02-2014
Hi guys, today i notice sumtin happened to my 919..... The blue light in the middle went out..... the receiver works perfectly but just the light didnt light up anymore..... is it a sign of the receiver having problem, or just the light went out?
odryan's Avatar odryan 06:30 PM 10-09-2014
Hey guys, having trouble with audio dropout when watching DVDs. Does anyone have instructions on how to update firmware and the current version?

I have a Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K

I'm using a mac, so hopefully it will be compatible with it.

Thanks,

RYAN

Hello everybody!
I have the same question as odryan, about firmware update, but for the Pioneer VSX 919 AHK!?
1. If there is a new update for the firmware, does create the possibility to read FLAC files via USB?
2. Can someone give me a solution to improove the low spectrum of the sound (bas), It's seems to provide a little to much of the higher frequences and that, without to change the level of the subwoofer in the set-up. I read in this thread, but i did.t find again by my research the exact page wich said that, wich recomand to leave ON an option in main menu, but i do not remember what option is ?!
3. I'm very concerned about the heating up of the receiver, can someone tell me at what temperature the cooler inside start or in what condition is working? (Before i had a sony without a cooler inside and does't heat up so hard)
Sorry for my english writing.
Thank you,

HKAN or anyone else who has firmware for VSX-1019HK email the instructions and files to googcs@gmail.com

I am unable to PM since I do not have 15 posts yet which is pretty lame requirement
cassiusem 04:47 AM 11-23-2014
@Googcs

You can find the firmware for 1019 and the instructions on pioneerfaq.info - fimware - AVR
ATTENTION! I Didn.t made the firmware update, i don.t know if is working, i try to reach HKAN on twitter but no answer...
I was trying to reach him, to find if the firmware posted on the link indicated above is the last one known.
The rules of the forum doesn.t let me to post the exact link

here is the link to the site posting the firmware: http://www.pioneerfaq.info/?question=Firmwares&type=AVR

likely that is the latest firmware for the unit.

As to the fixes the firmware provides, I cannot speak to that. I did flash to the latest firmware a long time ago even though I was not experiencing any problems (which is generally not advisable). If you look back to when the firmware was being discussed I think you will find the issues that some users were experiencing (something about having difficulty powering up the unit or turning off w/remote, but I could be wrong). Good luck.

No worries here! I have the 919 and bought it new in 2009, if I'm not mistaken (I bought it shortly after it came out). Still sounds great although I find the centre channel can be weak for certain movies. I just turn on the "dialog emphasis" (whatever the feature is called) on the AVR when that happens.


Would definitely buy again.

Same here..I've had my 919 for about 7 years and I've never had a problem..
I do find that with all three fronts balanced to 75db. the centre dialog is a bit low on some movies so I increased the level by 2db. and left it at that..It seems to give a better balance with the centre boosted a little and definitely gives more impact to explosions and the like..

I have a VSX919 that I had in storage for a year and a half due to a move. I connected front speakers to it and found out that my left front channel volume is very low; right channel seems OK. If I swap speakers, it still only plays correctly from the right channel. Anyone else have this sort of trouble? I've run into a similar issue with a Numark mixer that didn't output out of one speaker...I hope it's not the same.
