I had this exact same problem, it can indicate that there is an impedance mis-match somewhere. i.e. using 4 or 6 ohm speakers instead of 8. However if you unplug the speakers and it is still doing it then you could have a problem with the actual amp circuit.

Mine was doing it with nothing plugged in and had dry solder joints on the circuit board with the two large output devices are. Simply resoldered those and it is fine now.

It had started crackling before it stopped working all together, which would also indicate the start of dry joints or bad connections somewhere.

Regards,

Rolf.

    Same here. Re-soldered all those hundreds of pins, or so it seemed. Works like a charm though.

If you know how to troubleshoot solid state electronics then I would say it may be worth it. The amp error indicates a high current draw at the output ic's and drivers. depending on how much you can replace it for would be your final answer.. Find out also what a pro would charge for labor. Good Luck

How do I reset my pioneer VSX-D711

To reset your Pioneer VSX-D711 receiver, you can follow these steps:
  1. Power off the receiver.
  2. Press and hold the "Advanced Surround" button on the front panel of the receiver.
  3. While still holding the "Advanced Surround" button, press and hold the "Standby/On" button.
  4. Continue holding both buttons for a few seconds until the display on the front panel of the receiver shows "Resetting."
  5. Release both buttons.
The receiver will now be reset to its default settings. Note that this will erase any custom settings or presets that you may have programmed into the receiver.
If the above steps do not work, you can also try the following:
  1. Power off the receiver.
  2. Press and hold the "Tuner" and "Band" buttons on the front panel of the receiver.
  3. While still holding both buttons, press the "Standby/On" button.
  4. Continue holding all three buttons for a few seconds until the display on the front panel of the receiver shows "Reset."
  5. Release all three buttons.
Again, this will reset the receiver to its default settings and erase any custom settings or presets that you may have programmed

Overheat vsx 920

The real answer, sorry this is old -- is that a temp sensor, called a thermistor has probably gone bad in your amp. A thermistor is a resistance thermometer, or a resistor whose resistance is dependent on temperature. When these go bad in the VSX pioneer amps, the amp wont even power on with NO speakers connected to it. Just instantly goes into "im overheating, turn myself off" self protection mode. On some amps this part is easy to locate and swap out. Unfortunately, some are harder to find the physical location of this thermistor .

Pioneer VSX-D411 receiver "Amp Error" message

Hello,
Unfortunatelly your receiver has failed. The front panel is telling you one of the power modules is probably bad. Not an DIY type of repair. These parts are near $40.00, plus cost of replacing.
Look at options to replace your trusted receiver with a new one.
Good luck

Amp error

AMP_ERR means the unit is detecting DC on the output of one or more amplifier channels. This is either the result of a failed/shorted amplifier (or other component) or bad solder joints (as mentioned above).
