SOURCE: i have a pioneer vsx-501. I can't get it to turn

have you fixed it already?
I have the same receiver with the same problem as yours.
I found the fault in the voltage selector rotary switch. I'm refering to the round voltage selector switch not the other one, because you'll notice that there are 2 voltage selector switches at the back. The lock was broken so it couldn't switch the primary terminals of the main transformer.
Basically this amp has 2 power transformer, the small standby traffo and the large main traffo.
Try to press that round switch and press the front panel power switch. If it goes ON, then fix the center lock of that round switch.
Hope it helps.

My pioneer vsx 54 tx is in a blinking standby mode. The blinking light will not go off and the unit will not power on. What do I do?


http://www.retrevo.com/support/Pioneer-VSX-54TX-Receivers-manual/id/385dj996/t/2/

Or maybe something is obstructing the rear panel ventilation device (or it has failed). Page 84

I had a problem recently after a power outage where both my receiver and an external amp would not power up until I unplugged them from the wall for a moment first.

My pioneer vsx 815 amplifier has a flashing blue standby light. Have tried resetting by pressing enter and advanced surround keys. All it does is flash a few other LEDs and then goes back to the flashing...

"enter and advanced surround keys"? I don't see that documented as a special function in the manual.

BTW: other than the Flashing light, is there a malfunction?

Page 72 describes how it REALLY resets...

Resetting the main unit

Use this procedure to reset all the receiver's settings to the factory default. Use the front

panel controls to do this.


1 Switch the receiver into standby.


2 While holding down the TONE button, press and hold the STANDBY/ON button for about three seconds.


3 When you see RESET? appear in the display, press ENTER .

OK? shows in the display.


4 Press SYSTEM SETUP to confirm.

OK appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory default
settings.

Receiver won't turn on. All I got is the flashing light.


Try pushing these buttons at the same timwe for a few seconds:
Advanced Surround + Enter..

'Advaned Surround' will be found in the front panel and 'Return' near the multi-jog dial.

Receiver just blinks standby will not power on


I have been so bummed, days now I have tried to get my Pioneer receiver to power on from standby with no luck.  We now have our receiver back, the same solution worked for us. Be sure to push the buttons on the receiver unit not the remote.  Thank You! Thank You!
