It is not recommended to attempt to reset a device with no power. If the power is off, the device will not be able to respond to any commands or perform any actions.
If your Pioneer VSX-AX3 is not turning on or functioning properly, there are a few things you can try before attempting to reset it:

  1. Make sure the device is properly plugged in and that the outlet is functioning properly.
  2. Check the power cord for any damage, such as frayed wires or loose connections.
  3. If the device is connected to a surge protector or power strip, try plugging it directly into a wall outlet.
  4. Try a different power cord or outlet to eliminate the possibility of a problem with the cord or outlet.
If none of these steps help, you may need to have the device repaired or replaced.

My vsx-456 clicks on but menu panel does not light up; so I don't get that volume to my tv?

Hi Cecelia, for what you say, your Pioneer VSX-456 is not working, the click you hear is the current relay and this feeds the Pioneer, obviously there is something wrong with the equipment
Consult a specialized technical service
I hope you can solve the problem

I have a Pioneer VSX-515-K A/V Reciever. When I plug it in the power relay clicks continuously. I don't have the schematic to troubleshoot the circuit. I just want to make sure it is the relay that's bad...

A bad relay won't pick and release itself. You need to find the cause.

Here's the Service manual.

Page 66and 67 have a timing sequences for power up and down.

Pages 72 and 73 describe a possible loops - DC abnormality and Fan Stopped.

Receiver problem

Try this, it may work for you.

1.)Plug the unit into your mains voltage.
2.)Depress the enter and advanced surround buttons (on the front panel of receiver) at the same time for
at least 2 seconds, you should hear the relay tick and front panel should light up.
