Question about Pioneer VSX-D557

1 Answer

Lightening hit neighbor's tree - we lost cable and stuff

When we turn on the "power" switch the unit displays: "TUNER" for a few seconds, then displays: "POWER OFF" for about 10 seconds and then goes into "Stand-by" mode. It didn't do this before the thunderstorm. What can we do?

Make a home owner's insurance claim. Your receiver needs to go in for repairs.

SOURCE: Shows to be stuck in Standby.

hold down the enter button and the advanced surround button for 5 seconds or so and the amp will restart, the display will come up and hopefully it will be ok. its often caused by using speakers under 8 ohms, or damaged speaker cables etc

SOURCE: Our receiver (pioneer vsx-405) will not power on.

Hello,

Usually a fault like the you ask will indicate a bad transistor in the amplification section. I suspect that the control circuit is sensing a fluctuation in the power supply and going in to protect mode. (assuming that the protect circuit itself is working properly) If a voltage is too high the unit will go in to protect mode to prevent damage to the speakers and the rest of the unit. I would take the unit in to a local repair shop and get a estimate of repair charges. Expect a 60 to 80 dollar repair charge depending on how many parts need to be replaced and what the repair labor rate is in your area.
Good luck...

Why won't my TV turn on after a storm?


Your TV might very easily be destroyed now, from lightening damage. Lightening can come in on the cable, on the power line, all sorts of unexpected ways. I've personally been struck by lightening, plenty hard enough to destroy almost any electronic device... and I was working in a basement at the time.

Motorola DVR DCX3501-M loses power and guide info resets


We call it "flashing 8's" and a lot of things can cause it.

1st one of the signals that the cable provider sends to the box, we call it a "hit", will reset the box and tell it redownload
2nd I find dirty power (poor wiring, UPS or surge protector failing) can send the box spikes of power that make it think it recieved a hit.
3rd could be a problem with your cable signal. signal too high, yes it is possible to have too good a signal. maybe a bad amp in the alley behind your place or on your building. (any neighbors having trouble?)
4th maybe its a bad box.... gotta go bad sometime.

good luck

I have a panosonic plasma 42 inch tv. After a storm all I get when I turn it on is black and white static but all the menus display fine


Look to see if the rear video/audio inputs work (DVD etc) and if they do the damage is at the tuner in the set (nearby lightening can discharge into the cable or wires for signal.)

If using a box (cable or satellite) it may have took the hit.

A good idea if lightening storm is to not only unplug set (static discharge can come in via the power cord also) but disconnect signal source from set.

I have in extreme cases seen a nearby strike get in via the power lines and destroy almost every appliance plugged in even if not on.

Tv struck by lightening


LIghtning is usually not something for the do-it-yourselfer. Too many things could have happened. The power supply could be damaged, the tuner (if connected to cable or outdoor antenna) could have been damaged. If the power surge was large enough the microprocessor could have been "fried"

If the set is smaller than 27", I recommend you just purchase a new unit which will be digital ready and have all the "new stuff" built in.

My TI-83 Plus turns on but yields a dark screen with no blinking cursor thing. All I can do is turn it on and off. I have just put in new AAA batteries.


Try turning the contrast down. Turn the calculator on. Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Down-arrow key for a few seconds until the screen lightens.

Technics ST-X302L tuner - Unit not powering on


i have the same unit and a similar problem, after a fall of the tuner on the floor while i was cleaning my room, first times the st-x302l was powering fine but after some minuts it quit alone.. now (i dont know why) it remains on but if there is an interruption of electricity it dont turn on anymore, it turn on only by removing the metal chassis and moving random the electronics.. i think it has some electronic contact or circuit break.. i brought it to a specialist in electronics and he told me the reparation would be too expensive so i prefer to try fix it by myself.
