Question about Pioneer VSX-D712 Receiver
DVD and VCD that have been created on my friends computer and run fine on his VSX-D812? will only run in black and white on my VSX-D712. His receiver is only a few months newer than mine but is the next model. Is this likely to mean that my receiver needs some sort of firmware upgrade or something to make it run the same as his? Thanks for any help .....
First we need to know how you are relating the video problem to the receiver. What video inputs are you using from your DVD player to the receiver, and from the receiver to the display you are using. What display are you using? The receiver does not control or modify any video sources... it only selects (switches) them, and is basically just a pass through.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.
Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.
You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.
If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.
If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

If the STANDBY indicator blinks and the power shuts off
automatically, take the unit to your nearest Pioneer authorized
service center or your dealer for servicing.
