Hi Carlito71, I have the exact reciever and encountered the same problem right after moving into a new house. After messing with it for 3 days, someone told me that if I had it plugged into a power-strip, I should take it out and plug it straight into a wall socket. I sure didn't think it could ever be that simple, but I plugged it into the wall, pushed the power switch, and it was no longer in demo mode. Sounds crazy, but it worked for me.

Hi Carlito,

Not sure what method you are using to turn off the demo mode, try this

  1. disconnect the unit from the power
  2. plug the unit back in again after 5 mins
  3. whilst the display indicates "now demonstration mode" press the on/off button on the unit
I got this procedure from the owners manual, so should work. If it does not, then try holding the power button in for 5 secs to do a software reset.

Good luck, get back to me here is you still have problems. If you need, you can download a PDF of the manual from here.

regards
Graeme

Hello how doi adjust the left and right balance for the left and right channel level


The only 'balance' is to adjust the channels relative to each other with the test tones.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Pioneer-VSX-24TX-Receivers-manual/id/386ag014/t/2/

Page 29.

The "Effect/Channel Select" button on the Remote (left of the Menu button), will let you change the level to any channels while listening to a program. Page 22

"EFFECT/CH SEL +/- buttons (See p.38)

EFFECT : Use these buttons to increase or decrease

the amount of effect applied in a DSP or Advanced

Theater mode. When the amount of effect is

increased in a DSP/Advanced Theater mode the

characteristics of that mode become stronger and

more noticeable. The scale ranges from 10-90 with 70

as the default setting. First turn on the DSP/

Advanced Theater you want (by pressing the DSP/

Advanced Theater button until you get the mode) and

then increase or decrease the amount of effect.

CH SEL : You may want to adjust the channels when

listening to some sound sources. Use this button to

select the channel you want to adjust.

+/- : Use these buttons to select the amount of effect
in a sound mode and to adjust the channel"

The reciver is stuck in demo mode. Can`t get it out of demo mode.


The demonstration will activate the first time you turn on
the power. When the demonstration starts, the following
message appears in the display:

“NOW DEMONSTRATION MODE IF YOU FINISH DEMONSTRATION PLEASE PRESS POWER KEY WHILE THIS MESSAGE APPEARS IN THE DISPLAY THANK YOU”

To cancel the demonstration
Press the Power 1/0 button to turn the receiver off while the above message is being displayed. The next time you turn the receiver on, the demonstration will not appear.


It's in the manual - page 3.

Getting out of protect mode I have a Denon 787 receiver. It was working fine for 8 months. All of sudden, my reciever goes into protect mode after playing for about 30 min. Right after it goes into protect...


most of the receivers come with a cooling fan inside see if its working they usually work when you turn the volume up,, if its working that means you are playing it to loud if you lower the volume a little it will play just fine..( if the fan inside is not working thats the reason it goes into protect mode and it means you must have it repaired,, it goes into protect mode to prevent furter damage to the unit or the speakers,,

I just turned my DVD player off when my STR-DE545 was still in DVD input mode and it came up LOCKED, maybe the input that you are using is not receiving a signal?

Stuck in protect mode


Speakers shorted out, blew a fuse. Replace the unit or (cross your fingers and) open up the box and find the blown fuse.
