Pioneer VSX830K FL OFF blinks display shows AMP OVERHEAT.

You need to determine what is overheating. For example if it uses a fan is that working? It it blocked with dust.
Operating the unit with the top cover off will quickly tell you which part is overheating. You can wait till it shuts down, then carefully, with it now unplugged, search for the hot parts. If you find only one overheating on it's own replace it.
Don't burn yourself!

Pioneer VSX-821-K receiver overheating

If you can obtain an ohm meter, check the speakers by touching the leads to the meter and see what it says. The meter should be set to measure < 1 kohm. If it shows lower than 4 ohms you have a bad speaker. If you have multiple speakers on one channel then it cannot handle the drop in resistance and it is overheating.

I own a Pioneer Elite SC-55 receiver, and suddenly, apparently without any reason , a blue light satart to blink, and when you try to turn it on a message that says " AMP OVERHEATING" appears and the

Two possible problems. A short somewhere in the speaker lines where a wire has come loose and is contacting another lead or wire, or possibly (less likely) one of the unused outputs (front height/wide, surround back) might have become active and are trying to output signal. The "AMP OVERHEATING" alert typically only activates when a short, DC fault, overheating due to excessive loads or impedance levels is present.

Ax4axi overheated and tripped out

Mine was Sony TA-AX4 (before), it also overheated.

I just let it cool down, and works again.

But on the second time, it didn't. I have repaired the SMPS

and replaced output transistors.

And added a blower on it.

yours could be the same.most likely.

I have a pioneer vsx 2016. I'm facing an overheating problems on the AV. Just switch on the AV for 10 minutes and the overheat messag will appear on AV screen and the device will shut of.

Does it indicate a problem with the fan? (Page 67)


blinks in the display, then the power automatically switches off.

• Something is obstructing the fan. Remove the obstruction and try switching the receiver back on. If the

fan is still not working, or you can't remove the object, unplug the receiver from the wall and call a Pioneer

authorized independent service company.

• The fan is malfunctioning. Unplug the receiver from the wall and call a Pioneer authorized independent
service company.

Check for dust balls in and around it. Disconenct power before exploring inside.

Pioneer VSX-01 TXH receiver turns off

Sounds like the speaker circuit is overloading or the receiver is overheating.

Check to make sure all speakers are in phase. Pos to Pos. Neg to Neg.

Make sure receiver has plenty of cooling room.

Hope this helps.

Pioneer power LED is Blinking

If that didn't work, with the power off try holding Tune + and Auto surround/stream direct buttons for a few seconds to reset the protection circuits. Make sure to keep 8" of empty space above the unit for air, as overheating can cause this problem. If it fails again, there could be bigger problems, so get it checked

My sx-315 pioneer receiver overheated and shut down.

Probably the thermal fuse in the main power transformer. Check for ac on both the primary and secondary of the transformer. If you have 120v ac on the primary when the standby light is off and nothing on the secondary you need a new transformer.
