SOURCE: Harman Kardon AVR 120 turns off by itself after normal work for about 1 min

Followup on higlider's problem. Now it has to be turned on ten times before it stays on. Email from Harman Kardon only suggests taking it to an authorized repair shop. It is clear that it is not from speaker short or overheating, because it only happens when the rcvr is cold.

Try pressing the ENTER + VIDEO2 buttons on the front panel of the unit for 2 seconds. The unit should then come back to life and MCACC should go off.

SOURCE: pioneer receiver vsx-d510 sub not working

Rear Surrounds are not supported on this unit, they would be the 6th and 7th channels in a 7.1 rig. I think you mean Surrounds (channels 4 and 5 in a 5.1 rig).

Lets ponder: How is there any relationship between Surrounds and your separately-amplified Subwoofer? I don't see it, unless you inadvertently chose OFF for the Sub definition when you were in the Speaker selection menus adding the Surrounds. Look again.

SOURCE: 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

Power on problem


Sounds like a defective switch.
To check it, with the power cord unplugged from the wall outlet or power strip, use an ohm meter to take a resistance reading across the switch when you press it to the "on" position. If the reading drops to zero, its a good swithch; if you get a high reading- the switch is bad. You may want to press the switch on and off several times while taking the reading to see if you can reproduce the fault. It may even be a loose solder connection to the switch.
Please make sure you run this test while there is no voltage power going into the stereo because serious electrocution and death can occur.

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 found this for the VSX918, 818. Perhaps it's similar.

The power does not turn on. • Disconnect the power plug from the outlet, and insert again.
• Make sure there are no loose strands of speaker wire touching the rear panel. This could cause the receiver to shut off automatically.
The receiver suddenly switches off and the power indicator
blinks.
• After about a minute (you won’t be able to switch the unit on during this time), switch the receiver back on. If the message persists, call a Pioneer authorized independent service company.

Resetting the main unit
Use this procedure to reset all the receiver’s settings to the factory default. Use the front panel controls to do this.
1 Switch the receiver into standby.
2 While holding down the ADVANCED SURROUND button, press and hold the
STANDBY/ON button for about three
seconds.
3 When you see RESET? appear in the display, press ‘
ST –’. OK?
shows in the display.
4 Press SOUND RETRIEVER to confirm.
OK
appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory settings.
