Home Theater-Stereo

I have Blu Ray wireless DVD player and a Pioneer Receiver.

Customer Question
No sound was coming out...
I have Blu Ray wireless DVD player and a Pioneer Receiver. No sound was coming out while playing DVD nor trying to watch Netflix. We tried several troubleshooting methods through Netflix, but that was not the issue. Internet is not the issue. Purchased a new Blue Ray in case that may be the issue, but it is not. Now we are turning to you to tell us if there could be a problem with the Pioneer receiver. Please help!

Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today.

Sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with this but I’ll do my best to help you out, Joe.

What is the make/model of your player?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Blu Ray is brand new, but the problem is totally in the Pioneer receiver (Aug 2011)VSX 521 K
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

So you have no sound only on bluray?
Are you getting sound through pioneer for any other input (radio, cable/satellite, etc)?

TV Sound works and it is running through Pioneer receiver, but not through BluRay for DVD nor Netflix,etc.
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

I’ve attempted to accept your call request, but it appears to have failed on your end due to a payment issue. You may need to increase your deposit or clear a security hold on your account. I’ll resend a new phone offer from my end that may be more readily processed. If you prefer to continue here in chat, that is fine too, just let me know. Just let me know either way.

Thanks,

Nathan

I need to know exactly how you have the pioneer connected to both tv and bluray.

Can they recheck. I think I missed the security code on back of card.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
What do you mean? They are connected the way they have always been connected without a problem until about a week ago.
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

I need you to detail the specific connections, exactly which cords/ports are used on each device.

I'm not there to see it myself, so I have to rely on information from you to resolve the issue.

Can we run through the BluRay remote and the Pioneer remote to see if there is something on one of them that may remedy the situation?
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

Yes, we can, and you can upload photos via the papeclip icon here.

I need you to tell me the specifi connections first, and exactly what you see on the pioneer display when you try to use the bluray.

Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

Okay you are on the wrong input first of all, you need to set the pioneer to whatever input you have the bluray connected to.

Where did you plug it in? You should have an hdmi cable from the bluray to the BR or DVD input on the pioneer, and have the pioneer set to that corresponding input.

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
We do. All connections are fine.Visual is there. We think we may have hit some mute button and we have tried to reset it but it has no impact.
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

I'm not asking if things are plugged in, I'm asking, for the 3rd time, for you to tell me all of the specific connections used between each device.

There is no icon I can see to send you a photo. Your patience is much appreciated.
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

You can just tell me, which port/plug (they are all labeled) is being used for tv, bluray, pioneer, and any other devices you have there (cable/satellite, etc)

HDMI from receiver to TV
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

So sound does work for cable, correct?

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have already said we have audio for TV - both audio and video.
We have video on ALL.
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

Okay when you have the pioneer on the bluray input mode (so you get video from bluary),

if there is still no sound that is a pioneer setting.

It is not a mute or speaker setting or you wouldn't get cable sound.

Go into the pioneer setup menu, under Input Assign, and make sure that for bluray it is set to the proper association for the hdmi port you have it plugged into (and isn't set to analog, digital, etc)

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
There is no sound. We believe it is Muted, but we cannot find how to unmute it. We have hit the mute button on the Pioneer receiver remote multiple times and manually turned the volume up on the receiver itself, and volume UP on the remote. Both show volume setting going UP on the receiver display screen, but there is no impact.
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

This is not related to the mute function, or it would be affecting cable as well.

I've asked several times for the specific connections used and not received them.

I've given you specific settings above to adjust.

How do you go into the Pioneer set up menu
If I knew what you are asking for I would have supplied it. You deal with this all the time. This is my FIRST time and not the expert.
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

I am asking you for the specific connection and ports used from the player to the pioneer.

Press the Menu button on the pioneer remote to access the menu.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Such as...."Using the Pioneer remote click on...."
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

Go into the pioneer menu, then to System Setup, then to Input Assign,

then to BR (or BDR, it is still unclear where you have it connected) and set it to the hdmi input

When I press the button under the letters BD Menu and ADV Surr the sound on TV is changed to various speakers and sounds.First, should I put the video back on DVD first? Then access Menu? On the remote there are two Menu buttons -
Top Menu - Audio Parmeter
BD Menu- ADV SURR
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 1 year ago

Set the pioneer to the input mode to get bluray picture back

then you are using the top menu button on the pioneer remote

I'm sorry I'll need to opt out at this point.

If you'd like to work through this via phone we can continue that way, as the chat isn't being productive for us here.

Otherwise I'll opt out and another expert may be willing to assist you.

Do not rate, or reply back here, as either may cause delays.

Hi Joe and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the Pioneer.

And let's start with the basics; is there sound from the Pioneer connected speakers if the Pioneer is set to AM or FM mode?
