Question about Pioneer VSX-D507S Receiver
It turns on fine and we just moved it into a new room today... after 10 mins or so, the receiver turns off and the phase control symbol blinks.. i can turn it back on but it does the same thing 10 mins later. It is only a year old and pretty darn expensive. What can i do to fix this?
I have checked my connections and it turned out to be a short in one of my tower spearker wires. My system works fine now and pounds like it used to.

One thing to check would be the speaker connections. If this receiver worked before you moved it and only started doing this after it was moved, that could be the source of the problem.
If the speakers are connected improperly it could cause it to go into protect mode after a few minutes.
Also check the speaker wires and make sure you don't have any frayed wire sticking out and touching the chassis of the reciever or shorting together.
The phase control symbol is something I would need to research, I have repaired several of these recievers and do not remember the phase control ever being a problem.
Logic would dictate that something is connected wrong, my first thought is the speakers, but it could be something else. I would go back over every single connection on the back of this unit and double and triple check them all. make sure the positive speaker connections are going to the positive speaker post and negative to negative.
It is also easy to connect the speakers to the wrong jacks on the reciever. You may be bridging a channel or two and that would cause the reciever to get hot very fast and shut down.
If none of this helps you may just have to take it in to a service center. I would reccomend an authorized Pioneer service center. They can at least call Pioneer tech support and talk to Mark, Bernie, or Mike at Pioneer. They are on top of all things Pioneer.
I will be happy to help you further if you need it.
