    I have similar problem with my VSX-1015. If I plug in the power cord, there is audio output , but the front panel display and all lights are off and buttons do nothing. Only way to power off the receiver is to unplug the power cord. What would be the button combination to press for full reset?

It could be mains spikes, interference on the power supply from another device.

Try plugging the unit into an RFI suppression anti surge lead and see if that helps.

My Onkyo TX-SR606 won't turn on

The reference to Zone 2 means that your Onkyo receiver is set to be remotely controlled from another location. Normally, this arrangement would be initiated at the time of set up but could be done later. You may have to repeat the initial set up routine to get things back to normal

My pioneer vsx 54 tx is in a blinking standby mode. The blinking light will not go off and the unit will not power on. What do I do?

Or maybe something is obstructing the rear panel ventilation device (or it has failed). Page 84

I had a problem recently after a power outage where both my receiver and an external amp would not power up until I unplugged them from the wall for a moment first.

My pioneer vsx 1015 . I had it turned up rather loud for a few hours a few nights ago and it suddenly cut out. powered off. When i turn it on either directly or through the remote control the power light...

With nothing showing up on the front panel display, I would first look at the power transformer. there is a thermal fuse built into the transformer core, and with your description on what happened, it could have gotten too hot and blown this fuse.

Calibration: low volume, power of all channels is decreased I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer VSX-1015 Front: 2 x Infinity Alpha 40 Center: 1 x Infinity Alpha Center Surround: 2 x Infinity Alpha 30 Surround back: 2 x Infinity Alpha 20 Subwoofer: 1 x Harman Kardon HKTS200SUB Receiver is new, speakers are used but in good condition, subwoofer is new. ---------- I followed the calibration proces with the microphone. Sound: excelent quality of sound. Never heard anything like this. Good bass, pure and lifelike sounds. Plays loud enough to bother the neighbours. Much bass from the speakers while subwoofer only produces a little bit of ultralow, feelable but not hearable vibrations. ----------- So far so good. Although the sound volume is loud enough for me, it really doesn't reach te output power as pioneer subscribes. In order to play loud I have to turn the volume to almost max. Compared to an old sony receiver (5 x 100 watt rms at 8 ohms 0.07%), the outputted power seems to be much lower. I reach te same (feeling of) power when I turn the pioneer to 80% volume where the old sony reaches that feeling yet at 20% volume. ----------- I noticed that the calibration process decreased the output level of all speakers. With the subwoofer on max (button on the subwoofer itself), I get the following levels: front: -8.0 db / -9.0 db center: -5.5 db surround: -8.5 / -9.0 db surround back: -7.5 db / -7.0 db subwoofer: -10.0 db (MAX decrement!!) All speakers are auto rated as LARGE as they all can deliver good bass. The equaliser has decreased the low frequenties of all speakers and increased the high frequenties. ---------- I tried to manualy increase the output level of the channels. Outputted power increases a lot but doesn't much good for sound quality. I also tried the calibration proces with the sub at half power. Now the sub level is only decreased by 2.5 db and allother speakers are decreased with 2 db less, so a little bit less decrement but stil decreased. ---------- question I have read that increasing the power times 2, puts an extra 3 db to the sound pressure. Watching the heavily decreased db levels on each channel, sounds to me that the receiver works at relatively low power. 7 x 35 watt or whatever... ? Can it be that the subwoofer is too large for this system as it is decremented with the max 10 db? That the system cannot decrease the subwoofer any further so it is going to decrease the speakers? But if that is the case, wouldn't it be more logic that the speakers are incremented and the sub is decremented in level? What about the sound quality? Can it be that the pioneer receiver also measures distortion of the sound? The room where the speakers are in is a small room (20 square meter). Can it be that the receiver decrements all levels in order to reach the highest sound quality? --------- The reason I want to know is because I want to understand the calibration. I am fully satisfied by the sound quality but knowing there might be more in it, is not a good feeling ;-) Thanks a lot!!
