Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-49tx receiver that is getting power (standby light is on), but will not actually turn on when you hit the power button.
The VSX-49TX is a very complicated product. It has no less than 4 microprocessors(computers inside your receiver) This is not a power supply problem, as suggested.
As I wrote the factory seminar on this unit, here are a few things to try.First unplug the unit. Plug it back in, and push the power button. You should immediately hear one mechanical click from without the unit, followed by a second click within 5-10 seconds. My guess is that you will hear the first click, as if you didn't, you would have no indicators. You are probably not hearing the second click.
If you are interested in repairing your Pioneer, or finding out more information about this particular model, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there, and let me know the answers to the above questions. Thank you.

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!
