Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders
Hello. I have a Pioneer VSX 830 K receiver. I got it damaged and tried to run it. It has the following symptoms. When connected to the power, the FL OFF LED blinks. I can run it regularly every 15-20 sec, but the display shows AMP OVERHEAT. Then it switches off. After waiting 20 sec I can restart it, but the same thing happens. I noticed that when turned on the volume indicator responds to turning the volume control knob I was able to get the word VOLUME MIN. However, the receiver itself turned off with the words 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!

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