No sound from any inputs. Not from digital or analog. Not even from the FM radio. But when I go to the speaker level setup it puts out a test one on each speaker. I cant even get sound from a USB stick with music on it. It gets even better (sarcasm) no sound from headphones !
The other wack thing I noticed is that there is a set of analog audio inputs called "video" and just above it is a old composite video input. Nowhere in the manual or or the remote or in any screens do I see a way to use these inputs. There is no "video" to select anywhere! I see tv, cd, dvd and everything else but no "video" How stupid can Pioneer be? This AVR has turned out to be a rather nightmarish thing that has made me want to not buy anything Pioneer.
New or used?
In either case, have you tried to reset the AVR?
From the Interactive Manual:
Using other functions
Resetting the system
Use this procedure to reset all the receiver’s settings to the factory default. Use the front panel controls to do this.
Set MULTI-ZONE to MULTI ZONE OFF.
Disconnect the iPod and USB memory device from the receiver beforehand.
Set the Control with HDMI to OFF (see HDMI Setup).
1 - Switch the receiver into standby.
2 - While holding down ENTER
on the front panel, press STANDBY/ON
The display shows RESET NO
3 - Select ‘RESET
’ using PRESET controls, then press ENTER
on the front panel.
The display shows RESET? OK
4 - Press ENTER
OK appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory default settings.
After reset check for sound.
To get to VIDEO or any of the other inputs not on the remote ...
- you can press HDMI to cycle thru the HDMI inputs
- use the INPUT SELECT arrow keys
- SIGNAL SEL will switch between digital & analog on a selected input
- you can combine the above - i.e. to get to VIDEO, press BD then HDMI (works on my SC-72 - 1222-k may be different)
Hope reset restores your sound.
