    The 814 does not have the auto surr/ direct key. I tried the enter key with all other front buttons and nothing happened. I am getting 120V past the first fuse but I am loosing it before the primary contact on the main transformer,

Ben , read my post ( vigvette ) for my VSX-517....Out of the factory manual for the 517....It might give you an error code.
When power off, push FRONT ENTER key + AUTO SURR/DIRECT key continuously 2sec.

Pioneer VSX-94 lost sound


The surge probably affected the power supply. The UPS only maintains operation for a limited time in the event of power loss.

I have a pioneer vsx 2016. I'm facing an overheating problems on the AV. Just switch on the AV for 10 minutes and the overheat messag will appear on AV screen and the device will shut of.

Does it indicate a problem with the fan? (Page 67)


FAN STOP

blinks in the display, then the power automatically switches off.


• Something is obstructing the fan. Remove the obstruction and try switching the receiver back on. If the

fan is still not working, or you can't remove the object, unplug the receiver from the wall and call a Pioneer

authorized independent service company.

• The fan is malfunctioning. Unplug the receiver from the wall and call a Pioneer authorized independent
service company.

Check for dust balls in and around it. Disconenct power before exploring inside.

Twice now my Pioneer VSX-819H has shut down. Can not get any power to it. The first time I'm sure the phono pre-amp caused a surge. I no longer have it hooked up. The servicer said nothing was wrong and...


I found this for the VSX918, 818. Perhaps it's similar.

The power does not turn on. • Disconnect the power plug from the outlet, and insert again.
• Make sure there are no loose strands of speaker wire touching the rear panel. This could cause the receiver to shut off automatically.
The receiver suddenly switches off and the power indicator
blinks.
• After about a minute (you won’t be able to switch the unit on during this time), switch the receiver back on. If the message persists, call a Pioneer authorized independent service company.

Resetting the main unit
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 ADVANCED SURROUND button, press and hold the
STANDBY/ON button for about three
seconds.
3 When you see RESET? appear in the display, press ‘
ST –’. OK?
shows in the display.
4 Press SOUND RETRIEVER to confirm.
OK
appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory settings.

Does pioneer model vsx 403 come with a remote control? If so how can you relace it?


I have the same unit. It does come with a remote. The original remote is pretty much impossible to find. But also there are some companies that sell remotes for it. Google Pioneer VSX403 remote replacement. I have yet to get a remote :D
Good Luck.

Pioneer receiver vsx d814 amp error


The Pioneer VSX-D814 has a couple of Power Hybrid bricks that do all the power amplification. These are the infamous PAC011A. You should have 2 of those in your receiver.

If the amp detects some unusual activities, it may shut down the unit to prevent damage. “Amp Err” usually means some DC in the output.

Disconnect all the speakers and turn on the unit; if it acts normal, reconnect speakers one set at a time very carefully. If the unit still shows the error message you can try to reset it. If the reset works, again carefully reconnect the speakers connections. If the reset does not recover the normal operation of the unit, you may have one of the PAC011A damaged, and the unit will need repair.
The reset can be done by disconnecting the unit power cord for a few minutes, then plug it in and press “FRONT ENTER key + ADVANCED SURROUND key” continuously for 2sec.

Good luck

Pioneer VSX 915 powe off


Had a power surge last night and got the same problem. Unit wont power on and has a blinking blue light on standby button. I found the solution from the service manual for a similar model.

Hold down ENTER and ADVANCED SURROUND buttons.

This resets the DC overvoltage sensor and bingo the unit comes back to life again.

Center channel


Just to rule out the easy solutions, have you made sure no settings changed? Make sure that you didn't accidentally turn off any surround sound settings or turn off the center channel in the MCACC setup or the like (I have the VSX-D814, so your receiver should have MCACC as well). If you're sure no settings changed and the center channel should be working according to the receiver, then it would appear that the center channel amp went out in the receiver. You can either get a Pioneer service center to take a look at it, or if you're comfortable with electronics, I believe you can get the parts straight from Pioneer.
