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

Hi, Try pushing the "Advanced Surround" and "Enter" buttons together for about 3 seconds.

Could be a component failure other than fuses in the transformer circuit. Maybe a defective transformer

Pioneer Audio... | Answered on Jul 14, 2019

I sounds like you may have a problem in either one of the Regulator circuits, or, one of the Power Amplifier outputs. If the protect circuit detects DC or Low Impedance on one or more of the speaker lines, it will not fire up the high power section of the power supply. Further troubleshooting will require some working knowledge of power amp and power supply circuits. I've got a .pdf copy of the Service Manual if that will help you.
Please let me know what your level of troubleshooting ability is, and whether the manual will help you.

In the manual Error 23 states the USB stick is not formatted with the FAT16 or FAT32 filesystem, which is the only supported filesystems supported on the unit.
