Question about Pioneer VSX-D510 Receiver
Added speakers in other areas of the house switched to speaker B and amp error came on display and now speaker will not turn on
The Pioneer VSX-D814 has a couple of Power Hybrid bricks that do all the power amplification. These are the infamous PAC011A. You should have 2 of those in your receiver.
If the amp detects some unusual activities, it may shut down the unit to prevent damage. “Amp Err” usually means some DC in the output.
Disconnect all the speakers and turn on the unit; if it acts normal, reconnect speakers one set at a time very carefully. If the unit still shows the error message you can try to reset it. If the reset works, again carefully reconnect the speakers connections. If the reset does not recover the normal operation of the unit, you may have one of the PAC011A damaged, and the unit will need repair.
The reset can be done by disconnecting the unit power cord for a few minutes, then plug it in and press “FRONT ENTER key + ADVANCED SURROUND key” continuously for 2sec.

After performing the tests mentioned prior, if you determine that the amplifier is damaged and needs replaced you can do this for about $30 USD yourself. But, I do not recommend that you attempt this if you have no prior electronics training and experience, there are many sensitive components in this unit.
