We have a problem with a Pioneer receiver VSX-D411 It shut off after being played for about 10 hours straight. When we turn it on it shows "AMP ERROR" and shuts down again. What can we do to fix it.

    What speakers are you using? Look at the label and see what impedance they are (4 ohm, 8 ohm or something like that).

Lo mas probable es que hallas recalentado los ICs amplificadores de audio y vas a tener que remplazarlos.

When powered on "amp error" displayed then shuts


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as another possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.

I have a Pioneer VSX-D411 and there is dsp ng flashing, what is it

I believe it's trying to tell you something is wrong with its digital sound processing.

This was the best source I could find on it:

If you switch it to satereo / direct and the light goes out I'd say that would clinch it.

Pioneer VSX-D411 receiver "Amp Error" message


Hello,
Unfortunatelly your receiver has failed. The front panel is telling you one of the power modules is probably bad. Not an DIY type of repair. These parts are near $40.00, plus cost of replacing.
Look at options to replace your trusted receiver with a new one.
Good luck

Pioneer receiver VSX-D411


Yes techtod you are right you do have to tell the receiver what you want it to do usually on the front panel you can access set up menu and go into input set up This is an example Say you plugged the dvd into optical one or coax 1 you must go to the input that says dvd click down till you highlight dig input and then select optical 1 or coax 1 there can be as many as 8 digital inputs so just check wich one you plugged it into and then tell the amp then you should be back to watching your digital movies
