Pioneer ue22 error code

My vsx-50 was working fine until there was a power cut. Now error code UE22 is flashing. I have turned power supply off but it still will not work anymore. It is set up to my smart tv and dvd player. Do I need a new one or is it repairable?

    I had error code ue22 on my vsx 1326. I no longer have that error code blinking and my receiver works fine now. All i did to fix it, is pressed and held the enter and power buttons untill the receiver turned off.
    When i turned it back on again the error code was gone and my receiver worked fine. Hope that helps.

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

Its because the pioneer does not display menu options through hdmi. You have to hook up basic yellow composite to monitor out.

Receiver blinking ue22. Cannot find in manual. No sound for cable or sonos or netflix. No sound period

Unfortunately this error code on a Pioneer receiver indicates that the firmware has been corrupted. The only fix for this is to replace the digital board. If out of warranty, it is probably not economical to repair.

No sound on pioneer vsx_50 and it is flashing UE22. can't find this in manual

The error comes up when the unit software is updated and the update has failed. The error UE in fact means Update Error. What you need to do is to repeat the update and let it install completely.
Please let me know how this goes.

How do I clear a UE22 error on a Pioneer VSX-1021-k receiver?

Just because it irritates me when people act like know-it-alls. . . this IS a problem, "yes", I have RTM as well as tried every other idea I've come across on the internet. Yes, I have repeated it. No, it still doesn't work. Yes, in googling further and actually reading through the threads there are many people having this problem. No, there is not a good answer other than buy a new receiver if it's out of warranty.

Stand by button flashes but receiver wont turn on

I have vsx-d812 that has an AMP ERR in error menu. the troubleshooting was found to be Q696 and Q697 in the DC prot. area on "C" board, up near front toward diplay in center of c board. You can get access to error codes on VSX pioneer unit by pressing "enter" and "adv. surr." simultaneously for 2 sec. The display should show what error code you are experiencing. I believe there are three diff. error codes. 1) AMP ERR 2) OVERLOAD 3) BOAD ERR (not mistyped) I hope this helps pinpoint error code for ya.
