Disconnect the speaker leads and see if this stops happening. If it does, connect up the speakers till the problem pops up, and that speaker that makes the problem happen is most likely bad. If the problems still happens with no speakers attached, then there is a problem in the audio output amp, and is going to need service , Good Luck

Overloads all the time under 40db.

Hi Glen. The thing with these new units is that they are so fussy when it comes to frequency range on the speakers. The frequency has to be within the range that the amplifier specifies, or you'll have problems. I suggest that you check your manual to see what the required frequency shuold be and take it from there. I have one myself and love Pioneer

Pioneer VSX 915 powe off

Had a power surge last night and got the same problem. Unit wont power on and has a blinking blue light on standby button. I found the solution from the service manual for a similar model.

Hold down ENTER and ADVANCED SURROUND buttons.

This resets the DC overvoltage sensor and bingo the unit comes back to life again.

VSX-D498 Overload

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.
