Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Flashing hdmi light means it is in protect mode. Did the unit ever turn on or was the light flashing as soon as you plugged it in?

HDMI version is 1.3 in your receiver.The current version is 1.3b. I would suggest calling Pioneer cust assistance and see if there is a firmware update. Your unit has a 2 year parts & labor warranty. Their # is 1-800-421-1404 It sounds like a CODEC issue. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Protector flashing
SUCCESS. I have a SONY STR D990 where the PROTECTOR light would stay on no matter what I did. As a last resort I pulled the cover and tried the recommendation by GUEST 6/8/2008. I unplugged and replugged all the white connectors that I could easily reach and checked to see if the light came back on when I repowered the unit thereby checking each by a process of elimination. For some reason after unplugging and plugging back in the main white 2 wire 120V power connector the PROTECTOR light stayed OFF and the unit started operating again. I've left it running for a few days and the light has never come back on again. I also added electrical grease to each of the connectors after and before plugging back in just to ensure that each was making a good connection. Many thanks for the suggestion, even if I don't know why it worked. I was about to dump the unit as I only use it in my garage.

Unit is in protect mode. Hold "advanced Surround" button and power switch for a couple seconds and it should turn on. If it turns back off, disconnect all your speaker wires and try again. If it still shuts off, the amp is bad and needs to go in for repair.
