Any ideas

Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the speakers connected to the Pioneer.

Plays for about minute then they breaker kicks and the receiver shuts down

I understand and appreciate the additional information.

Have you considered / tried a RESET?

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Let me look a reset on the receiver

Consider a RESET. A reset is both a test and a try of a fix. As it implies, a reset would force the unit to revert back to factory defaults removing glitches and config errors but would include memories, presets and user preferences. After a reset, the initial setup would have to be performed. If have not been done and should you be comfortable to try: Please click / tap HERE.

May have to be done a number of times.

This is very critical - a reset however would not be corrective of an internal hardware concern; but it would be confirmed. In some instances, it may even expose/cause other issues.

I got it reset it still doing the same thing soon as I turn the volume up it kicks out could it be the output on the speakers are overloading
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
This unit has been played less than 50 hours it’s been stored for years
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I guess I reset it but I didn’t do an initial set up is there a procedure for that
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Yeah other issue I have is I cannot find the remote and I remember that it had quite a few functions you couldn’t do off the screen of the receiver do I need the remote to do some of these set up’s

A RESET is supposed to set the Pioneer back to default. It should work and not "...turn the volume up it kicks out..."

Yes, the speakers and the speaker wiring can cause this. Have you re-checked the speaker wiring? ...ensure no loose wire strand?

Just bought brand new cables for it should be hooked up they have some jumpers that go across the polls on the back of the speakers not sure what they do

Please post back with clear pictures of the "...new cables...jumpers that go across the polls on the back of the speakers ..." Click HERE.

These pictures would then serve as common references allowing me to see what you are seeing.

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question

Appreciate the picture. These links allow bi-wiring if preferred. These appear to be connected correctly.

If the RESET was not corrective, then it would appear that the Pioneer is kicking in auto-protect mode. In most instances, this would be indicative of an internal hardware issue.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Thanks I was worried about that

The above was the user's RESET.

There is a technician's RESET. This, however, is a 2-way tool; i.e. it either forces a full RESET or it allows the protection to be bypassed and can cause further damage.

Would this be something you would be comfortable trying?

louie, It looks like it might be working appropriately. I reset it one more time I haven't cranked it up above the zero mark but I'm going to do that a let you know if it works. Thanks for your help
