Question about Pioneer VSX-D506S Receiver

1 Answer

My Pioneer A/V Receiver Model VSX-D506S was purchased in 1997 and has given me years of listening pleasure. Until lately when power-on button is pressed, the display indicates "Power Off" then switches off after few seconds.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

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.

Receiver turns off when you press on button


This is a "protect" mode indicating that there is a problem internally. The most common cause of this is defective output transistors which will need to be replaced. The parts cost for this repair will likely be in the $25-$50 range.

www.pioneerusa.com then support. I could not find your "Exact" model, and it could depend on where it was purchased. Look at units closely labeled to yours and chances are it will be the same with a different #. Hope this helps

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

Speakers for pioneer vsx 1018


I think you're making this way more complex than it is.

This unit should have no trouble with any reputable speaker. Don't read too much into short term impedance readings as long as you run only one speaker per channel. Every speaker has a dip somewhere in its frequency range and the Pioneer will probably protect itself and the speaker should impedance or current get too out of whack. This is a high end unit and has plenty of clean power to feed any speakers out there.

I'd buy it if I didn't already have a 6-year old predecessor (VSX-T36TX) that I paid twice as much for and has only 5 amplified channels, less features and lower power output. ;-(

Good luck and happy listening!

Pioneer VSX 915 powe off


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.
