Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders
At first, it only shut down in surround sound mode, now it shuts down in stereo mode as well ... thank you
Easy! You either have a surround speaker wired backwards or there is a break in the wire leading to a surround speaker that is allowing the +&- to arc together. your amp shutsvoff as a protection to keep the arc from reaching the mother board. replace your wires man!!

SOURCE: amp error
The only solution I, personally, can help any of you with is to buy a good working model. i.e. Mine! I am upgrading to a 7.1 Onkyo and do not need mine any longer. Send me an email and I will gladly sell it to you! $75 (no remote) But you already have one so... (firstname.lastname@example.org)

If the unit shuts down almost immediately without sound, you have an electronic failure of the audio amplifier.
However if you must play the unit up above quiet background levels, you likely have a shorted speaker wire. With home theater systems, you have the luxury of trying different surround modes and speaker level settings. It's not unusual, for example, to have a loose wire strand going to the center speaker. In stereo, the system works fine. As soon as you switch to a surround mode, the amplifier senses the short and shuts down to protect itself.
Check those wires really close - I bet you'll find it there.

Might be over heating. Make sure you don't have anything sitting directly on top of it. I even put a little fan blowing outward at the back of my system to keep it cool.

In Stereo Direct the analogue sound is directly routed to the amplifiers. In all the other ways the signal is digitized (if it ain't already) then modified digitally in a very specialized processor. In your case that processor has just died. It can't be repaired and you must replace the entire board it's soldered on to fix that - it will be expensive.
Why it has failed ? I don't know, but, since it's a processor, even the smallest electrostatic shock is enough.
