Re: volume buttons

The tact switches have failed to the vol up and down switches. This is common as they do the most work. replacing the switches will fix it

This is how to reset the receiver to factory default- not sure if it is the same reset you would do for an amp error:

Resetting the system
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 front panel STEREO/A.L.C
button, press and hold
u STANDBY/ON for about two
The display shows RESET?.
3 Press the front panel AUTO SURR/STREAM DIRECT
The display shows OK.
4 Press HOME THX to confirm.
OK appears in the display to indicate that the receiver
has been reset to the factory default settings.
Note that all settings will be saved, even if the
receiver is unplugged.

Unfortunately, amp errors are usually not fixable and require you to bring the receiver on for repairs or just buy a new receiver.

THANK YOU AGAIN SO MUCH! I basically got through the 1st step or so and the thing came right back on like nothing had ever happened. Although, I think what ended up working for me was actually pressing and holding the STANDBY/ON button with the AUTO SURR/STREAM DIRECT button together for a few seconds....I didn't have to reset to factory settings, nor did I have to do step 3 or 4.

Now the receiver is working just fine like nothing ever happened. All of the input AND output speaker channels all seem to be functioning normally and in peak form, and I've made sure that I have the area around the receiver well ventilated. So....thank you, again...for getting back to where I really wanted to be without having to go through the hassles of disconnecting everything and having it serviced with possible $ and time expenses.

No output from the left front speaker

using your flashlight bulb in one hand, hold the speaker wires to the bulb and then gradually increase the volume. If the bulb lights, the Pioneer is good.
