I have vsx-d812 that has an AMP ERR in error menu. the troubleshooting was found to be Q696 and Q697 in the DC prot. area on "C" board, up near front toward diplay in center of c board. You can get access to error codes on VSX pioneer unit by pressing "enter" and "adv. surr." simultaneously for 2 sec. The display should show what error code you are experiencing. I believe there are three diff. error codes. 1) AMP ERR 2) OVERLOAD 3) BOAD ERR (not mistyped) I hope this helps pinpoint error code for ya.

With the receiver off, press ENTER + ADVANCED SURROUND keys continuously for 2 sec. and it will tell you the fault it encountered. Even if it has a short, it will still protect the speakers; however, it is still a good idea to disconnect all speakers before doing this.

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.
check this out
Denon AVR-4310CIgoogle it they sell for ALOT less than sticker I bought one for $1299 with a 5 year warranty
Hope that helps

Testimonial: "@thebigdoghim, thanks for the very constructive feedback. I was 80% certain that the cost to diagnose the problem alone would be in the triple digits."
