Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Hi Ravindran K, the first thing to determine if it is a problem generated by defective components inside the equipment or outside
To determine this, I suggest you unplug the Pioneer and disconnect all the speakers, then reconnect it to the power outlet and turn it on.
If the fault continues, it is very possible that the power supply and the output stage are bad, in this case consult a specialized technical service
If you do not fail, it may be that some or some cables or speakers that may be defective
To verify this, look at the cables, which are in good condition and with the connection ends with the wires properly threaded
Then go connecting the speakers one by one and test the operation
Take the test and comment
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Ravindran K, lo primero que hay que determinar si es un problema generado por componentes defectuosos dentro del equipo o de afuera
Para determinar esto, te sugiero, desenchufa el Pioneer y desconecta todos los parlantes, luego vuelve a conectarlo al toma corrientes y enciendelo
Si continua la falla, es muy posible que la fuente de alimentaci?n y o la etapa de salida se encuentren mal, en este caso consulta un servicio t?cnico especializado
Si no hace la falla, puede ser que alg?n o algunos cables o parlantes que puedan estar defectuosos
Para verificar esto, observa los cables, que se encuentren en buen estado y con los extremos de conexi?n con los alambres correctamente enroscados
Luego ve conectando de a uno los parlantes y prueba el funcionamiento
Haz la prueba y comenta
Saludos Franco Dosil

Open internal fuse or power supply failure

Press TUNE+ & AUTO SURR/DIRECT keys continuously for 2 sec. and it will tell you the fault it encountered if the receiver is in otherwise working condition.

Only way to fix this is to replace the digital board.

How do you get it out of protect mode?

Pioneer... | Answered on Aug 31, 2019

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

Hi Ramon, as you say, the protection circuit is working, you would have a problem in the power supply or in the audio outputs of speakers
I suggest you disconnect, all the speakers and test if the fault continues, if it does not continue, connect the speakers one by one and test until the possible fault is detected
If you disconnect and stay the same, I suggest you look for a specialized technical service
If you have knowledge and technical expertise, I give you the link to download the service manual of your Pioneer
I hope you can solve the problem

Hola Ram?n, por lo que comentas, esta trabajando el circuito de protecci?n, tendr?as un problema en la fuente de alimentaci?n o en las salidas de audio de parlantes
Te sugiero desconectar, todos los parlantes y probar si continua la falla, si no sigue, conecta de a uno los parlantes y prueba hasta detectar la posible falla
Si desconectas y sigue igual, te sugiero busque un servicio t?cnico especializado
Si tienes conocimientos y pericia t?cnica, te paso el link para que descargues el manual de servicio de tu Pioneer
Espero puedas resolver el problema

Hi Joshyinoman, your subwoofer, is active, that is, it has its own amplifier, just take the bass audio signal from your Pioneer
Check if it is properly plugged into the power outlet, if the signal cable is properly and correctly connected to the Subwoofer Out of the Pioneer
If all this is well, then you have a problem with the internal amplifier, if so, look for a specialized technical service
I hope you can solve the problem
Regards Franco Dosil

Hola Joshyinoman, tu subwoofer, es activo, es decir tiene amplificador propio, solo toma la se?al de audio de graves de tu Pioneer
Controla si esta bien enchufado al toma corriente, si el cable de se?al, esta bien y correctamente conectado en la salida Subwoofer Out, del Pioneer
si todo esto esta bien, entonces tienes un problema con el amplificador interno, si es asi, busca un servicio tecnico especializado
Espero puedas resolver el problema
Saludos Franco Dosil
