    You seem like the person to ask. I have a Pioneer VSX-640S. The standby light comes on when plugged in, but will not power up (display does not light). I looked at the 2 5A fuses on the inside and they were blown. I have replaced them, but they keep blowing out as soon as it powers on. It seems like the boeard on one side of the amp may have gotten hot as the inside of the case seems dark in a couple spots. Any ideas?

The receiver will not turn on, there is a red led that continuously blinks on far left corner of display

The unit is in protect mode. Try holding the advanced surround and power buttons for around 5 seconds. the unit should turn back on. If it turns back off after a few seconds, then you most likely have a problem in the amplifier that will need to be repaired.

Ran out of gaz and cant start the car anymore how do i fix this thanks

You mmay have to cycle the ignition several times. That is, turn it on for a few seconds, and then off, and repeat. Have someone stand at the fuel cap, and listen to make sure the pump is running for a few seconds when you turn the key. They should be able to hear it hum for a few seconds, and then stop.

Hi I want to add 2 extra speakers (for outdoors) to my Pioneer VSX-519V and see in the manual that I require a separate amplifier. Why is that necessary & if so can you recommend one please ? Thank...

Technically, you dont need an additional amplifier to run another set of speakers. This amplifier has a second zone output option. What you need to do is connect your outdoor speakers to the second zone on the reciever, than you can turn it on and select the desired source from your remote.

Display shows overload and receiver shuts down

This means that one (or maybe more) of the amplifiers is shorted. Remove all speakers cables and try again. If you get the same message that means that one (or more) amplifiers is fried. To find which and why you will have to open the unit and test the amplifiers.

I cant get my subwoofer system to work

Do you use a amplifier to power the subs? If so, the amp needs a signal to turn on. This is supplied by the blue/white wire labeled 'system remote' in pioneer radio's.
