Display not working


My VSX 3300's tuner/amp display does not work. Everything else works to perfection. Am I missing something? Or is it a known fault and I have to consider repairs?


Desperate Ben!

Check the solder joints on

Check the solder joints on the display tube. Also, check the power supply voltages. The main rails should be OK, it's the minor rails that may be having problems.

You have two supplies for a vacuum fluorescent display...the actual display control voltage going to the chip that runs the display and the display tube filament voltage. Both must be present.

Hi, Thanks for your time


Thanks for your time replying to my post. I really appreciate it.

Although I am no techy guy, I opened the receiver's cover and had a good look. Nothing seemed loose. As far as I could see, it was 'normal'.

Are you familiar with the idea that a certain combination of remote buttons could dim/disable the display? I have no 'dimmer' button on my remote as my Pioneer is a 1988 model!

I will do a run on Google to see what I can find. Again, thanks for your help.
