Question about Pioneer VSX-D712 Receiver

3 Answers

Shows to be stuck in Standby.

My receiver has been working fine for about 3 to 4 years; I recently moved and set it up again with all the same items it had before. About 1 day after I had it hooked up it was playing from the tuner and when I walked by it suddenly turned off. I went to hit the power to turn it back on and what I get is the ?Stand by? light above the power button flashing. When I hit the power button on the remote or directly on the stereo the light turns solid red for a bit then goes back to flashing. I unhooked everything from the receiver including the speakers and tried again it did not work. I tried unplugging it from the wall for 30 seconds (usually resets electronics) and plugging it back in. no change. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hold down the enter button and the advanced surround button for 5 seconds or so and the amp will restart, the display will come up and hopefully it will be ok. its often caused by using speakers under 8 ohms, or damaged speaker cables etc

If a unit suddenly shuts down and there is no sound most of the time that indicateds there is a fault in the amp circuit of this reciever. these are solid state printed circuit boards and you will need the knowledge on how this amp circuit works. Depending on what the problem is will determine if the reciever is worth repairing or not. Generaly, if a reciever is over 4 years old it would not be wise to drop any money into it as the capacitors and components in this unit are starting to get weak and will start to fail one by one, you will start nickle and diming the thing. Time I think to go out and shop for a new reciever, unless of course you get a service manual and know how to work on solid state printed circuit boards. Good Luck

AMP ERROR DISPLAY NO VOLUME


This is how to reset the receiver to factory default- not sure if it is the same reset you would do for an amp error:

Resetting the system
Use this procedure to reset all the receiver's settings to
the factory default. Use the front panel controls to do this.
1 Switch the receiver into standby.
2 While holding down the front panel STEREO/A.L.C
button, press and hold
u STANDBY/ON for about two
seconds.
The display shows RESET?.
3 Press the front panel AUTO SURR/STREAM DIRECT
button.
The display shows OK.
4 Press HOME THX to confirm.
OK appears in the display to indicate that the receiver
has been reset to the factory default settings.
Note that all settings will be saved, even if the
receiver is unplugged.

Unfortunately, amp errors are usually not fixable and require you to bring the receiver on for repairs or just buy a new receiver.



THANK YOU AGAIN SO MUCH! I basically got through the 1st step or so and the thing came right back on like nothing had ever happened. Although, I think what ended up working for me was actually pressing and holding the STANDBY/ON button with the AUTO SURR/STREAM DIRECT button together for a few seconds....I didn't have to reset to factory settings, nor did I have to do step 3 or 4.

Now the receiver is working just fine like nothing ever happened. All of the input AND output speaker channels all seem to be functioning normally and in peak form, and I've made sure that I have the area around the receiver well ventilated. So....thank you, again...for getting back to where I really wanted to be without having to go through the hassles of disconnecting everything and having it serviced with possible $ and time expenses.

Everything works except for mp3 when i plug it in. doesnt even say aux on screen


Just figured this out !
1) You have to be in 'Standby' mode - press (SRC) until it shows standby.
2). Press and hold 'Menu' button.
3). Using the joystick - move it left or right until it shows 'AUX' 'OFF'.
4). Move joystick up or down until it shows 'AUX ON1'.

It should now work ! - This is on P.22 of the manual - but it actually starts on page 19 where it describes 'Standby' mode.

Twice now my Pioneer VSX-819H has shut down. Can not get any power to it. The first time I'm sure the phono pre-amp caused a surge. I no longer have it hooked up. The servicer said nothing was wrong and...


I found this for the VSX918, 818. Perhaps it's similar.

The power does not turn on. • Disconnect the power plug from the outlet, and insert again.
• Make sure there are no loose strands of speaker wire touching the rear panel. This could cause the receiver to shut off automatically.
The receiver suddenly switches off and the power indicator
blinks.
• After about a minute (you won’t be able to switch the unit on during this time), switch the receiver back on. If the message persists, call a Pioneer authorized independent service company.

Resetting the main unit
Use this procedure to reset all the receiver’s settings to the factory default. Use the front panel controls to do this.
1 Switch the receiver into standby.
2 While holding down the ADVANCED SURROUND button, press and hold the
STANDBY/ON button for about three
seconds.
3 When you see RESET? appear in the display, press ‘
ST –’. OK?
shows in the display.
4 Press SOUND RETRIEVER to confirm.
OK
appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory settings.

I have a Denon receiver, had it for a couple years now and has worked perfectly. Last week I was watching a movie and all of a sudden my receiver shut off and it blinked a red ring of death. I let it rest...


Did you recently move any speakers around or any items near the speaker wire connections?
It sounds like you may have a speaker wire shorting which is causing the receiver to go into "auto protect" mode. Check all of the speaker wire connections on the back of the receiver and at all of the speakers to make sure the wires are not touching or close enough to possibly touch.

Help with hooking PS3 to a Denon Receiver. It worked before, but I had to move everything to a different location and when I hooked it back up the PS3 has sound but no picture.
