Pioneer vsx-d814 will not power on after power surge

Pioneer vsx-d814 took power surge from line switching by power company. Will not power on. Are there common failures in the power supply section.

    The 814 does not have the auto surr/ direct key. I tried the enter key with all other front buttons and nothing happened. I am getting 120V past the first fuse but I am loosing it before the primary contact on the main transformer,

Ben , read my post ( vigvette ) for my VSX-517....Out of the factory manual for the 517....It might give you an error code.
When power off, push FRONT ENTER key + AUTO SURR/DIRECT key continuously 2sec.

I was cranking spinning some EDM vinyl at -5dB and the vsx-d814 amp shut down after 10 minutes. I pressed Enter and Advanced sound and it clicked on and the display flashes “Amp Err” abs shuts back down after 3 seconds.

What do I do next?

I have the pioneer vsx-d814 with the xxd3069 remote but the remote wont work anything and it has power.Need help


Hello
Get into this link and see the faults that can occur with a remote control. Just check all that suggested. Even after all che checks are found OK ,and your device does not repeond to the remote control, the remote sensor inside the unit must be checked.

Twice now my Pioneer VSX-819H has shut down. Can not get any power to it. The first time I'm sure the phono pre-amp caused a surge. I no longer have it hooked up. The servicer said nothing was wrong and...


I found this for the VSX918, 818. Perhaps it's similar.

The power does not turn on. • Disconnect the power plug from the outlet, and insert again.
• Make sure there are no loose strands of speaker wire touching the rear panel. This could cause the receiver to shut off automatically.
The receiver suddenly switches off and the power indicator
blinks.
• After about a minute (you won’t be able to switch the unit on during this time), switch the receiver back on. If the message persists, call a Pioneer authorized independent service company.

Resetting the main unit
Use this procedure to reset all the receiver’s settings to the factory default. Use the front panel controls to do this.
1 Switch the receiver into standby.
2 While holding down the ADVANCED SURROUND button, press and hold the
STANDBY/ON button for about three
seconds.
3 When you see RESET? appear in the display, press ‘
ST –’. OK?
shows in the display.
4 Press SOUND RETRIEVER to confirm.
OK
appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory settings.

Vsx 515 wont power on


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

Pioneer receiver vsx d814 amp error


The Pioneer VSX-D814 has a couple of Power Hybrid bricks that do all the power amplification. These are the infamous PAC011A. You should have 2 of those in your receiver.

If the amp detects some unusual activities, it may shut down the unit to prevent damage. “Amp Err” usually means some DC in the output.

Disconnect all the speakers and turn on the unit; if it acts normal, reconnect speakers one set at a time very carefully. If the unit still shows the error message you can try to reset it. If the reset works, again carefully reconnect the speakers connections. If the reset does not recover the normal operation of the unit, you may have one of the PAC011A damaged, and the unit will need repair.
The reset can be done by disconnecting the unit power cord for a few minutes, then plug it in and press “FRONT ENTER key + ADVANCED SURROUND key” continuously for 2sec.

Good luck

Stand-by light on, but receiver won't power up


Power supply problem. Most equipment today has remotes and the power supply has to remain on to sense the remotes signal.
But the actual receiver section does not get power until the remote says so or you hit the power on button on the unit. Internally the supply then feeds the device. Most likely cause is a power surge or storm.
See if the remote will power it up?
I presume this is still under warranty. If you don't have it plugged into a good surge supression outlet strip, Get one!

VSX-D704S


Have the speakers disconnected and turn on unit. If it still shuts down due to thermal protection the amplifier IC pack is damaged. Amplifier IC is tied to one side of the power supply by design. The left channel is probably shorted at the MOSFET on the pack. Nothing you can do but have it serviced. This is a common PIONEER failure.
