Question about Audio & Video Receivers
Pioneer VSX 3800 receiver shuts off by itself during operation. Sometimes cannot get it to power back up without unplugging it and plugging it back in. What could cause this problem? Thanks
This is the "Protect" mode. It is either a bad speaker, or not good ventilation, or a channel going out in the receiver. Please provide more details about the problem so I can help you better. How long is it playing before it shuts off, does it shut off even if the volume is low? Disconnect the speakers form the receiver and then turn it on and let it play without speakers, if it still shuts off then the problem is not the speakers. More information is needed to better diagnose this problem.
