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!

Good day, I need your asst. I can't seem to remove the 2ch playback from my VSX-49TX Elite Pioneer reciever, I tried reseting it and nothing happen...can you help me.


If you have no sound, you can try the multi channel inputs on the back after switching to the multi chan input. If you have sound that way, you have a DSP problem. I can repair this issue to the component level, as many customers have found, the boards are very expensive, and no longer available. If you're interested in repairing your receiver, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. There you will find the seminar I wrote for Pioneer, when I worked there as a Field Service Engineer, specializing in audio. You can contact me directly from my website. Thanks you.

Pioneer vsx-01 receiver, standby light burned out. Button works fine, just no blue light. Pioneer sells a replacement standby button......is this easy to install and will it solve the problem? Do you have...


the light is an ledt they very rarely go bad ..to confirm its bad you must first see that the led is getting power --a voltmeter one end to the frame of the unit and the other to either lead on the led will confirm if its bad or not a typical led will run on or near 3 volts dc... if theres no power at the led than the problem is elsewhere

The stand-by light is supposed to go off when you power on the receiver. You should get the display light and you should have power on.
