SOURCE: My pioneer vsx-519V-k amp won't turn on. Just

Have you checked within the set, the fuse and if the standby circuit is working. thre could be a failure of this sub votage which is required for the switch on of the main power. If you do not have any standby indication you must check this section, however if you arre getting the standby you would have a failed output or a shorting that is triggering the error amp to swtich off. If you are familiar with the circuits you can check but I would suggest that since you will need more experience to look into the main board for tracing the fault. In such case check for the service centre nearest to the place you are in using a google search for Pioneer - Audio systems- sevice. Helpful I hope. Good day.

"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...

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

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.

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

Can you explain a bit more? Generally speaking when this kind of component shows that behavior means that is stuck in protect mode because it has an internal fault, and furthermore in the power amp output section.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on; or it may turn on but produce no audio to the speakers.

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 'nekkid'. 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.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as another possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Sounds like the amp has an internal fault,most likely in the power amp/driver stage.If you have a manual and know how to repair amplifiers you could do it,otherwise it is a job for a technician.

The red light is an indication of an internal short circuit. First things first, try disconnecting all the speaker connections and turn it on to see if any of your speakers are burnt and shorting. If that does not make any difference it means you have lost one or more MOSFET transistors in the amplifiers output stage. You will need professional help to replace those.
