Pioneer VSX830K FL OFF blinks display shows AMP OVERHEAT.

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!

My Pioneer Receiver VSX-519V has a blinking HDMI light and won't show video.


You guys mentioned the reset via the front panel, and I tried that with this very same issue on my VSX-822-k and it worked!
thought I would post the instructions for anyone else that lands here:
Reset the main unit if the receiver is generally not operating correctly. Switch the receiver into standby mode. Hold down the "BAND" button while pressing the "STANDYBY/ON" button for about two seconds. When "Reset?" appears in the display window, press the "AUTO SURROUND/ STREAM DIRECT" button. "OK?" appears in the display window. Press "STEREO/A.L.C." to confirm. "OK" appears in the window. The system has been reset.

I have a pioneer vsx 2016. I'm facing an overheating problems on the AV. Just switch on the AV for 10 minutes and the overheat messag will appear on AV screen and the device will shut of.

Does it indicate a problem with the fan? (Page 67)


FAN STOP

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
service company.

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

Reciever keeps shutting off!


If your reciever is in a tight enclosed space, than it will overheat and shut down to protect itself. Try to get some ventilation to it by either opening the cabinet door, adding a fan, or pulling it completely out of the enclosed space.

Power overload


That is a good thing, your receiver is going into "protect mode" that means the receiver is shutting down to keep from damaging delicate internal circuitry, it is sensing a speaker bottoming out or some other electrical "short" that could be damaging!
Also could be from over driveing the amp and then it starts to overheat thus going into "protect mode".
If your speakers are "clipping or distorting" turn it down, you are going to ruin your amp. Good luck !

Pioneer VSX-D411 receiver "Amp Error" message


Hello,
Unfortunatelly your receiver has failed. The front panel is telling you one of the power modules is probably bad. Not an DIY type of repair. These parts are near $40.00, plus cost of replacing.
Look at options to replace your trusted receiver with a new one.
Good luck

Pioneer receiver vsx d814 amp error


The Pioneer VSX-D814 has a couple of Power Hybrid bricks that do all the power amplification. These are the infamous PAC011A. You should have 2 of those in your receiver.

If the amp detects some unusual activities, it may shut down the unit to prevent damage. “Amp Err” usually means some DC in the output.

Disconnect all the speakers and turn on the unit; if it acts normal, reconnect speakers one set at a time very carefully. If the unit still shows the error message you can try to reset it. If the reset works, again carefully reconnect the speakers connections. If the reset does not recover the normal operation of the unit, you may have one of the PAC011A damaged, and the unit will need repair.
The reset can be done by disconnecting the unit power cord for a few minutes, then plug it in and press “FRONT ENTER key + ADVANCED SURROUND key” continuously for 2sec.

Good luck

This is not a pioneer vsx-454 receiver problem


I would not recomend doing this because the 4 ohm speaker is not enough to offset the 32 ohm speaker and the amp will have problems keeping up with the power consumption of the speakers and will eventully overheat and cause damage! (it will work but not well and not without risk to your amp!)
Please rate this quick response
Thank
You!
