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...

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?

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.
