Question about Pioneer VSX-D514 Receiver

1 Answer

Receiver won't power on

My receiver was turned on and plugged into a surge protector along with my LCD TV. The power went out and everything shut down. A few minutes later when the power returned, I turned the TV back on successfully, but when I tried to power on the receiver, nothing happened. I tried the reset procedure that is in the manual with no success. I looked at and tested the fuses and they are OK. The unit is receiving power as I felt the power surge when attempting to remove the fuses with the power plugged in (by mistake of course).

    I am in South Africa. ESKOM our electricity supplier sucks !. The past two days we've had a couple of power outages and serious dips. Needless to say my Receiver VSX-D514 is not powering up. I've checked the fuses - none blown. I've also noticed that there is 110V power on the voltage (checked between red and gray, and black and gray) selector but no 240V reading (between red & black) - checked with a multimeter ! Please help !

    We have the same problem with our VSXD514. Surround sound was plugged into a surge protector along with TV and other electronics. The power went off during a storm and when it came back on everything worked except the D514S. It will not power up.

How can I get Dynex TV out of "protection mode"?

the protected mode kicks in when there is a safety issue with the receiver. This usually comes from an overload to the system via a short in the system or perhaps a surge in power. Your receiver shuts down, and you'll need to shut the entire system down to fix it.
In some older homes, some of the wiring doesn't deliver the "cleanest" power, delivering minor power surges to the items you plug directly into the wall. If your receiver is plugged directly into the wall, purchase a surge protector to stop this

Tv does not turn on after a thunderstorm and several attempts at power returning to the home. The power went on briefly then shut off several times, now the television will not turn on. We had the tv...

Check the main fuse in the power supply, the TV also has small surge protection devices (MOVs) installed after the fuse, any surges the come along and big enough will cause the main AC fuse to blow. When you surge protector, EVERY connections must go through the surge protector, for example, the AC cord of the TV is connected to the surge protector, the cable connection did not go through the surge protection, the surge then can get to the TV through the cables.

Hello tsaucier, my name is MichaelHurst with DISH Network. Is your receiver plugged directly to the wall outletor to a surge protector/power strip? Unplug the DISH receiver for 10 secondsand plug back in. (It may take up to 5 minutes for the reset process to becompleted). Ifthereceiver is currently plugged into a surge protector, bypass the surgeprotector and plug the receiver directly into a wall outlet. If you are stillhaving issues try another outlet. If this doesn't remedy the issue then thereceiver will have to be replaced.

Power surge hit my surge protector with my 'sony tv hooked to it.

Well, the power supply may be still damaged by the surge, what may happen is that when first surge happens the surge protector protect your TV by sacrifing itself but then the second surge comes along, since the protector already blown up then the surge will just come right through to the TV on the second surge. That is bad problem for the surge protector that sacrify itself but can only do it for ONE time.
