Trouble w/ Pioneer VSX-D1S "Front display, does a crazy light show"

I paid to have this problem repaired before, and no parts were needed. They only gave a 90 day guarantee. I should of left it turn on 24-7 and than I could have taken it back the frist week. Front display, does a crazy light show. Along with the display, you lose control of receivers function. On occation I have turn it on, I will have a local FM station with good sound, but touch anything and its gone. Only way to cut the power, is to pull plug or hit reset button, witch put it to standby power. I know its the heat. This receiver cover, is all vented top and sides. I was told to look at transistor with heatsinks. Excessive heat has created a open connection on the board. Seems I don't see it. I was thinking the problem was right in the front display, but haven't open it. I've got to beleive, I'm not the frist to have this problem. Appreciated any suggestion.

    Solve it myself. I was up til midnight, and found a bad solder joint in the front panel of the receiver. The hardest part was getting in there, without braking something. I need to get a tool, for those wire plugs they use. It will make the job easy next time.

SOURCE: won't power up; push power button on, hear click in back left of unti, get nothing on front display and no output from speakers; as if unit trying to operate

Disconnect the speakers and see what happens. Carefully examine the speaker cables for unwanted connections (shorts).
Take a clue from when the power problem appeared. Something was moved and made the buzz a (probable) dead short.

SOURCE: My Pioneer VSX-D1S A/V receiver will not power on

Unit is pretty old I had one of these back in 98-99.

Time to upgrade a service tech is going to cost you $150 just to open it up and figure out whats bad.

Pioneer ok but check out Denon's line of receivers Onkyo is good too but they have a high rate of repairs

Pioneer doesn't make them like they used to that D1S was a tank, had tons of audio / video inputs was one of the first with video upconverting had lots of power and a great front display panel. BUT technology has come along way and pioneer hasn't kept up. They even stopped making high end TV's a few years ago even though they were regarded as the best sets out there.

SOURCE: pioneer audio video receiver VSX-D710S but there is sound to the speaker, but no audio coming from the player

Try to check the audio setting of the player. If you user using optical or coaxial then the audio out put format setting should be Raw other wise it should be PCM. You will see the setting if you go through the menu of the player

My Pioneer Receiver VSX-519V has a blinking HDMI light and won't show video.


You guys mentioned the reset via the front panel, and I tried that with this very same issue on my VSX-822-k and it worked!
thought I would post the instructions for anyone else that lands here:
Reset the main unit if the receiver is generally not operating correctly. Switch the receiver into standby mode. Hold down the "BAND" button while pressing the "STANDYBY/ON" button for about two seconds. When "Reset?" appears in the display window, press the "AUTO SURROUND/ STREAM DIRECT" button. "OK?" appears in the display window. Press "STEREO/A.L.C." to confirm. "OK" appears in the window. The system has been reset.

I have a vsx-52tx pioneer elite reciever with a light that keeps blinking. It keeps tripping while watching movies. should i get another one or is there something like resetting the reciever


I am assuming the light that is flashig is the "MCCAC" light on the front display. Supposing this is correct you have either a blown amplifier (one or mor channels) is the protection circuitry is not operating correctly. In either case the receiver has locked up to prevent any additional damage. There is a key sequience that needs to be preformed to unlock the unit so a technician can troubleshoot the problem. In most cases a blown amplifier should be in the $150.00 dollar range to get repaired. This is a fairly high end Pioneer receiver and is probably worth repairing, or at least finding out what the repair will cost.

Pioneer VSX-D411 receiver "Amp Error" message


Hello,
Unfortunatelly your receiver has failed. The front panel is telling you one of the power modules is probably bad. Not an DIY type of repair. These parts are near $40.00, plus cost of replacing.
Look at options to replace your trusted receiver with a new one.
Good luck
