Re: LED light dont come on!!! Pioneer audio receiver...
Do you mean that the display that show the audio source or mode doesn't turn on? Try shining a bright flashlight at the display and see if you can read it. If you can, then the backlight light bulbs have died.
Replacing it will be a pain but you may find a usable replacement at Radio Shack. Just measure the voltage that goes to the bulbs and find one with similar ratings. They are probably 12v lamps.You will need to remove the display from the front panel of the amp and desolder the old lamps. Getting at the bulbs is the hardest part.

on the back of the pioneer, you have a subwoofer preamp output jack, probably colored black, as opposed to red or white. stretch a rca cord between there and the red and white (or lfe) input of the sub. youll then have to check the amp setup menu and make sure it has the output activated. good luck
The Pioneer 9700s is a very good sounding unit, if you are talking in home threater space, but your problem sound like the power amplifer section is giving out too HIGH DC voltage therefore ripping the protection circuit. In these newer home threater ammplifers, there are not dc offset voltage adjustment on the circuit brd. All is done by negative feed back. Sorry you ar eout of luck I don,t hinkit is worth fixing. They are not as well make as the older Sa7500, and Sa9800 amplifers of old. There is a good chance that aftera few month something else will go on them. That is why they are so cheap on Ebay, these thraeter receivers.
If that didn't work, with the power off try holding Tune + and Auto surround/stream direct buttons for a few seconds to reset the protection circuits. Make sure to keep 8" of empty space above the unit for air, as overheating can cause this problem. If it fails again, there could be bigger problems, so get it checked
if you have an EQ hooked up it will not work correctly with dolby digital playback and will dammage the reciever.
sorry, just got here , but I have the same unit and have had it for 5+ years and it still works great ! but if you want any device to last unplug it when you are not going to use it for a while.
