Question about Pioneer VSX-816-K/S Receiver
With the receiver off, press ENTER + ADVANCED SURROUND keys continuously for 2 sec. and it will tell you the fault it encountered. Even if it has a short, it will still protect the speakers; however, it is still a good idea to disconnect all speakers before doing this.

As Abrsvcs indicated before, that blinking LED means a power amplifier section damaged, but there are not transistors, this amplifier uses two IC STK 412-230C for the front and sourround speakers and one STK 413-230C for the center and surround back speaker, it is very likely that one of the STK 412-230C blown.

Well, i thought it was the output modules (a.k.a power packs) as well, i replaced them, and i still have that damn blue light blinking

The blinking usually means that the unit is in "protect" mode. Check the output transistors for a shorted condition and replace.
