Question about Pioneer VSX-817-S
The blinking status of the standby light is an indication that the internal microprocessor is not working.
Please be aware that this not a simple case. The faulty microprocessor cannot be replaced by the home user; it requires some specialized hardware.
The best you can try is to reset the player to its default settings:
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 TONE button, press and hold the STANDBY/ON button for about three seconds.
3 When you see RESET? appear in the display, press ENTER. OK? shows in the display.
4 Press SETUP to confirm.
OK appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory settings.
You can optionally get the receiver checked by an authorized service person, if the fault is the same which I diagnosed, it is frequently economical to buy a new player.
Please reply if you do not understand anything.
