    DITTO -- freezes up - I think it is sending itself into some sort of 'safe' mode

    Same issue here. Pioneer says there is no known issue with like this with the units, and has recommended that I take it in for repair.

    Same here. Freezes up, nothing works. Brand new too!

    Same problem - freezes up and need to be unplugged to reset. It has even shut itself down once! Only been in use for 9 weeks! $1400 worth of aggravation.

    Same problem. Pioneer is not responding and ignoring this issue.
    I am now buying a Denon and never buying Pioneer again for anything. Elite? I think not.

    Anyone know what the fix is

  • djmdl Oct 09, 2009

    I brought my receiver back to the store I bought it at and they sent it to Pioneer to get it fixed. I have not had a problem since I got it back.

I had the exact same problem with mine. Local repair shop had to replace the main in-put chip on the back of the front panel. Works great now. Cost about $125 out the door.

Stand-by light on, but receiver won't power up

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!
