Pioneer VSX 915 powe off

Dear sir,
I purchased a receiver and it was working fine until a power surge yesterday now I have a blue LED flikkering on the power button you can press power but system does not come on. It seems as if it went into protection mode, How do I reset this please.

Had a power surge last night and got the same problem. Unit wont power on and has a blinking blue light on standby button. I found the solution from the service manual for a similar model.

Hold down ENTER and ADVANCED SURROUND buttons.

This resets the DC overvoltage sensor and bingo the unit comes back to life again.

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

Pioneer Elite vsx-27tx receiver with no bass!?


There may be a subwoofer mute function on your amp. The sub out is nothing more than a preamp output with a low frequency response. It is meant to be amplified by an external amp. Either check your powered subwoofer for operation or look through your operators manual for a sub mute function.

Pioneer power LED is Blinking


If that didn't work, with the power off try holding Tune + and Auto surround/stream direct buttons for a few seconds to reset the protection circuits. Make sure to keep 8" of empty space above the unit for air, as overheating can cause this problem. If it fails again, there could be bigger problems, so get it checked

Be sure you have proper impedance with both sets connected. Some units have a selector switch in the back of the receiver to set the proper bias. ...accordianman
