    I reset the receiver as you described with the execption that there is no "video 2" button but rather a "DVR/VCR 2" which worked to reset the micro. The amps seem fine after testing them at moderate high volume for about 15 minutes. Thanks for the help, probably saved me 100.00 dollar bogus service fee.

    THe receiver is working again, saved me a trip and 100 buks for a bogus repair. Used the "DVR/VCR 2" and "Enter" to reset.

Here is a link for ur receiver manual
as per the manual it says not to switch on ur receiver and call the pioneer service person.....
the problem u have is due to the toasted ICE amps..... ....   this might be due to power surge or power cut or through grounding problems in ur receiver..... 
press ENTER + VIDEO2 keys for 2 seconds..... this shud eventually release the receiver from the locked position.. its a reset code
if u dont have the provision for this and ur receiver is not under warranty... u can try to replace the burnt ICE amps inside..... if its under warranty pioneer will do it free of cost.....
thank you
have a nice day and good luck with ur receiver
if u found my solution helpful kindly rate my service.....

My pioneer vsx 921 switched off while playing loud. ADv MCACC is flashing and it is not powering on? What could be the problem?

Your unit is locked in protection mode. Hold the advanced surround button and the power button to turn it back on. If it shutdown right away, then you shorted out the amp and need to take it in for repair.

I have a Pioneer receiver (Model # VSX-1016TXV) and the MCACC indicator is flashing. The manual says to check for loose strands or loose wire speakers. I have completely disconnected the unit from all...

can you tell if its a error code. Also what kind of speakers are you hooking up and what connector style?

if there is a short somewhere this could be your problem as it seems that on this model it is the overload protection. So it may have been overloaded and needs to be serviced or you need to ensure there is no short. if you can provide me with more information i will be glad to be of more assistance.
