SOURCE: overload

well based on the specification of the unit u can use only 100 Watts x 2 for stereo and 100 Watts x 5 for surround. but u used 250 Watts x 2, this alone will overload the system. u may have blown the power amplifier ic/transistor not the fuse, otherwise there will be no display at all.

SOURCE: pioneer vsx-d511 amp error

I've had the same problem for over a month and have yet to find the time to get to it. However, I there may be a fuse on the circuit board that needs to be replace. That's just my guess.

Hope it's the solution.

SOURCE: i turn on my Pioneer VSX-D509S 5.1 surround amp

Disconnect all your speaker wires from the back of the receiver and turn it back on. If it shuts off, you need to have it serviced. If not post a comment and I can walk you thru troubleshooting. Hope this helps

SOURCE: My pioneer vsx-519V-k amp won't turn on. Just

Have you checked within the set, the fuse and if the standby circuit is working. thre could be a failure of this sub votage which is required for the switch on of the main power. If you do not have any standby indication you must check this section, however if you arre getting the standby you would have a failed output or a shorting that is triggering the error amp to swtich off. If you are familiar with the circuits you can check but I would suggest that since you will need more experience to look into the main board for tracing the fault. In such case check for the service centre nearest to the place you are in using a google search for Pioneer - Audio systems- sevice. Helpful I hope. Good day.

Hi ive knocked a large glass of drink over u have any tips.its a djm 500.theres no sound and its doing all sorts of crazy chanels round wrong way etc etc`ive tried to dry it

What was the drink?. If is was something like coke then it's going to need a full strip and clean as coke is very corrosive.
If it was plain water then I'd still strip it and put it somewhere warm for a couple of weeks to ensure it's REALLY dry before using it further.
You might need some new faders / switches etc depending on the severity of the spill.

you could open up the power supply and look for any fuses that may have blown, the ones ive seen are the glass type and are cheap to replace and easy to find at radio shack just take the blown fuse with you and replace with the exact amps. and make sure that everything is unplugged from the wall and be very cautious around the large cylinders inside the power supply aka "capacitors" they can hold a residual charge and WILL harm you

Pioneer avh-p7500 switch live

i dont know too much about these, but what i do know is, most of these units have a small 1 amp continuous blow glass fuse inside the unit, i would have a look to see if yours has it, and also look for any signs of over-heating on the PCB

No power in my Daewoo Monitor

Hi, Youo have zeroed in on the problem area. It looks like a power supply problem. More often than not, there is a fuse inside. If you would venture to open the unit up, do a visual check on the fuse. If it is busted: 1. Clean - no burnt/scorching/black marks inside the glass tube, then you can simply replace and hopefully the unit will be operational; 2. Dark smudges - or small burnt metal pellets inside the glass tube, then it is possible that you have other defective components that caused the fuse to blow. Normal components that are known to go bad are the big capacitor and or the power transistor regulator. Most current designs uses a switch mode power supply where your mains AC voltage is converted to DC that powers a circuit that eventually produces a lower DC voltage say 12VDC for use of the monitor. Should you venture a DIY (do-it-yourself), pls remember safety precautions when working with powered electronics. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Pioneer DEH-PB40MP No Power

hey, indeed this sounds like a couple of fuses gone bad. I dont know this accurate model, but it shouldnt work any diffrent. Anyway, with the stereo UNPLUGGED remove the covers and inspect inside, especially in the vicinity of the power transformer. The fuses may be glass cylinders with metal caps. There are other types, but the only ones you should probably try to mess with are the glass type, usually about 5/8" long by 1/8" wide. They should ONLY be replaced with the same type. Somewhere on the cap will read something like 3A, 4A, etc. This is the ampere rating. Replace only with same rating. It is foolish and dangerous to just go out and grab whatever fuse is laying in your car's glove-box, for example. There may be a couple fuses. As I said, there are other types of fusible devices, but they would require a tester and some limited knowledge of electronics to test. The glass-bodied fuses can usually be seen to be either good or bad by looking at the filament inside.
