I have a Pioneer VSX-D412 home receiver that I recently replaced the fuses in. The unit works fine except for this AMP-ERR message I get on the screen. I called Radio Shack and someone said the amp relay switch may need to be replaced. Unfortunately, I'm not quite sure as to which switch I need to get. If anyone could tell me the correct part to get it would be appreciated. Thanks.
Hello, The AMP-ERR message in many Pioneer Receivers is caused by some DC in the output. The microprocessor then issues the warning and shuts the unit off. It is definitely not a relay switch. It could be the amplifier power pack, i.e. PAC011A or similar that is faulty or something else. Not easy to repair for the non- experienced DIY. Good luck

I also have the VSX D412 and DirectTV. My DirectTV remote controls the D412 fine, but I did have the same problem you're experiecing with a Sylvania flat screen that the remote wouldn't operate. I corrected my problem by turning the TV off, then back on using the TV's remote, then telling the DirectTV system that I didn't know the model number and let the system search for the code. Hope this helps.
Hello, The subwoofer is totally independent from your Pioneer VSX-D412. You can check if it works like you did with a finger on the hot point of the RCA cable (not very good test, as you will hear noise and can't say if that means it works OK) or better connect a known receiver to the speaker connections in the sub and test to see if it’s working properly. Regarding the receiver, you may not have enabled the VSX to output to the sub. Read the manual on how to check for that. Only Dolby Digital 5.1 signals will allow the sub out, in a receiver of this level. It normally will not let you use the sub in stereo mode. Some more complex units will allow you that, but I believe not this model. Good luck
This is the same as "protect" mode. Basically the unit has detected a problem with the output stage of the amplifier and has shut down to prevent further damage. Usually this is caused by defective output transistors. Expect a parts cost in the range of $15-$40. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair bill.
The only solution I, personally, can help any of you with is to buy a good working model. i.e. Mine! I am upgrading to a 7.1 Onkyo and do not need mine any longer. Send me an email and I will gladly sell it to you! $75 (no remote) But you already have one so... (firstname.lastname@example.org)
