The unit cannot be controlled with a remote control device. I used the OEM remote and other universal remotes with no success. The OEM remote does control other devices such as the TV and DVD player, but not the amplifier/receiver that it is designed for. I am inclined to think that it might be a malfunction of the internal remote sensor of the unit itself but have no idea how to repair this or to know for sure if that is the problem. I have tried the manual reccomendation of unplugging the unit to eliminate a problem with static interference with no result. I can most likely repair this if I know what part it is I need to buy and where it is located inside the unit. PLEASE advise.
Hi, I am convice it's not the amp itself, is your remote a pioneer, if it isn't then it's your remote. Even thought you have bought a universal remote, it doesn't garanty it will work with any device,.... take my word, i've seen this costantly depending on the age of the unit.
If it's a pioneer universale remote, you would have to get the schematic for the amp and trace the opto sensor in the from and see with a scope what is the output of the sensor that goes to the micron, could also be the amp stage, sensor or micron that's causes your problem.
If some reason this is all bla bla bla, then just see if the infrered sensor for cold solder joint or a cracked board .

If there is no aux control on the receiver itself, then, you can only access it with the remote control. Bummer, especially when those remote replacements are not cheap and universal units will not do the trick.
Lip Sync issues are the nature of the beast. The TV has to process the digital video bitstream a lot more than the receiver has to process the audio so the result can be a gradual lagging of the video behind the sound... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lip_sync Some receivers have a sound delay control which you can use to try to sync them up. You didn't name yours so one does not know. I don't think this unit has that function. Look in the manual.

This is a common problem with a few of the Pioneer of that era (VSX-3300, 3700, etc). A secundary power supply line is faulty and it prevents your display from working. It is not an easy DIY, but a local tech should be able to fix. It is not always the same exact cause, as there are a couple transistors, a zener diode and a cap that can fail.
You can continue to use it without any detrimental effects on the unit, and can guess the settings.
Power supply problem. Most equipment today has remotes and the power supply has to remain on to sense the remotes signal.
But the actual receiver section does not get power until the remote says so or you hit the power on button on the unit. Internally the supply then feeds the device. Most likely cause is a power surge or storm.
See if the remote will power it up?
I presume this is still under warranty. If you don't have it plugged into a good surge supression outlet strip, Get one!
If I am not mistaking here, you need a self powered subwoofer to use with this unit. Those are line driven outputs for this unit. Make sure there is a wall plug on the sub that is plugged in. Good Luck
