Pioneer Elite Pro-99 Power Problem

My Pro-99 will not power on. If the unit is off completely, pressing the manual Power On button will cause the unit to momentarily power on, the green light comes on and then the unit immediately powers off and the red light comes on. Pressing standby then does nothing. Turning the unit off manually (or unplugging it) will allow the above sequence to be repeated. Nothing I have been able to do enables the system to stay powered up.

If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!

How to program my sanyogxdb remote to w ok rk my pioneer elite vsx 33 rece v er

To program your Sanyo GXDB remote to work with your Pioneer Elite VSX 33 receiver, you can try the following steps:
  1. Turn on the Pioneer Elite VSX 33 receiver manually using the power button located on the receiver itself.
  2. Hold down the "Code Search" button on your Sanyo GXDB remote until the LED light on the remote stays lit or blinks.
  3. Press the "TV" or "DVD" button on the remote, depending on which device mode you want to program the receiver to.
  4. Enter the corresponding code for Pioneer receivers. You can find a list of Pioneer remote control codes in the instruction manual that came with your Sanyo GXDB remote or by searching online. Enter the code using the number buttons on the remote.
  5. Point the remote at the Pioneer receiver and press the "Power" button. If the receiver turns off, it means the remote has been successfully programmed. If not, repeat the process using a different code from the list until you find the one that works.
  6. Once the remote successfully turns off the receiver, press the "Code Search" button again to save the code. The LED light on the remote should turn off or stop blinking.
  7. Test the remote by pressing other buttons, such as volume up/down or channel up/down, to ensure it is functioning properly with your Pioneer Elite VSX 33 receiver.
If you're still having trouble programming the remote, consult the instruction manual that came with the Sanyo GXDB remote or contact Sanyo customer support for further assistance.

My Pioneer VSX-D1S A/V receiver will not power on; this began yesterday. Pressing the power button results in only a clicking sound along with the standby LED turning on. The owner's manual states to press...

Unit is pretty old I had one of these back in 98-99.

Time to upgrade a service tech is going to cost you $150 just to open it up and figure out whats bad.

Pioneer ok but check out Denon's line of receivers Onkyo is good too but they have a high rate of repairs

Pioneer doesn't make them like they used to that D1S was a tank, had tons of audio / video inputs was one of the first with video upconverting had lots of power and a great front display panel. BUT technology has come along way and pioneer hasn't kept up. They even stopped making high end TV's a few years ago even though they were regarded as the best sets out there.

check this out
Denon AVR-4310CIgoogle it they sell for ALOT less than sticker I bought one for $1299 with a 5 year warranty

Hope that helps

Monitor does not sutn on, power button flashes four times fast.

Sorry I know your model number and its a Power Down trouble with the Scan IC's that are in the unit. You need a tech to look at it and he will most likely find a bad Scan IC and it will need to be replaced. This a is a relatively easy fix for him.

Pioneer elite pro 100

My set is doing the same thing again. The last time I fixed this (4 years ago) it was a capacitor gone bad in the power supply for the 24v standby circuit. (C166)
The service manuals can be ordered directly from Pioneer Part Number ARP3014 for Pro-100 model.
