I have an older...

I have an older pioneer receiver and it keeps turning itself when it reaches a high volume. How do I fix that?

Technician's Assistant: What is your Pioneer connected to or paired with? Are all cables connected tightly?

Yes. It's connected to cable.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a different audio source (e.g. another TV, computer, or CD)?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Theater Expert to know before I connect you?

No . Thank you.

Technician: Aric, Engineer replied 2 months ago

It's shutting down when it reaches high volumes, because the amplifier section is overloaded- this can be caused by several things:

1) Too many speakers or a low impedance type speaker connected (so what's the brand and model number of the speakers)?

2) Not enough clearance over the top of the receiver for convection cooling (it's shutting off because it is too hot).

3) Failing out transistors- which is a hardware failure and requires service.

So, first- what's the model number of the Pioneer and how old is it?

Secondly, how many speakers are connected and what's the brand and model of the speakers?

Third, where is the receiver located- is it in a closed cabinet? Is it out in the open?

Reply back with as much detail as possible if you need more help.

If you can help I'll stick with you. It's a 10 year old system. I have it connected to five speakers plus a sub. On a shelf open.
