Hi,

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 my pioneer vsx-817 wont turn on the standby light - cf7ee51.jpg 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.

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.

My pioneer vsx 54 tx is in a blinking standby mode. The blinking light will not go off and the unit will not power on. What do I do?


http://www.retrevo.com/support/Pioneer-VSX-54TX-Receivers-manual/id/385dj996/t/2/

Or maybe something is obstructing the rear panel ventilation device (or it has failed). Page 84

I had a problem recently after a power outage where both my receiver and an external amp would not power up until I unplugged them from the wall for a moment first.

Stand by button flashes but receiver wont turn on


I have vsx-d812 that has an AMP ERR in error menu. the troubleshooting was found to be Q696 and Q697 in the DC prot. area on "C" board, up near front toward diplay in center of c board. You can get access to error codes on VSX pioneer unit by pressing "enter" and "adv. surr." simultaneously for 2 sec. The display should show what error code you are experiencing. I believe there are three diff. error codes. 1) AMP ERR 2) OVERLOAD 3) BOAD ERR (not mistyped) I hope this helps pinpoint error code for ya.

Blinking Standby


regarding the Pioneer VSX-912 blinking standby light. This is how you reset it; press the "advanced surround" and the " enter" at the same time for about 3 seconds. Make sure you press the ENTER on the reciever (its the one on top next to the small dial) If you press the "ON" instead of "ENTER" it will not work. If an error message comes on and shuts the unit down, just reset it again. This should save you some $$$$. To bad Pioneer did't put this info in the manual.

Receiver just blinks standby will not power on


I have been so bummed, days now I have tried to get my Pioneer receiver to power on from standby with no luck.  We now have our receiver back, the same solution worked for us. Be sure to push the buttons on the receiver unit not the remote.  Thank You! Thank You!
