Question about Pioneer VSX-D914 Receiver
My 2 year old D914 worked fine until one day the video feed to the TV stopped while the audio continued normally. When I disconnected the power for a few minutes the problem stopped. Gradually the power down period needed to be extended to many hours, and the time until the video stopped was reduced from 30 minutes to about 5 minutes. The audio was never interrupted.
This definitely sounds like a circuit board-level issue. Have you tried moving to a different input set (i.e. if you're now on the TV inputs, try the DVD or AUX inputs for both video and sound)? Just to rule out the obvious, have you made sure that it's the receiver and not the DVD player? I know that you said you powered down the receiver, but if you had turned it off by pulling the plug on the surge suppressor and your DVD player is in the same suppressor, you might want to make sure it's the receiver and not the DVD player.
If you're sure that it's the receiver, then you might want to look into taking it to a Pioneer service center to have it repaired. If it's not worth the cost to you, it might be time to be looking into a new receiver.
