Troubleshooting

Incorrect operations are often mistaken for trouble and
malfunctions. If you think that there is something wrong with
this component, check the points below. Take a look at the
other components and electrical appliances being used,
because sometimes the problem may lie there. If the trouble
isn't sorted out even after going through the checks below,
ask your nearest Pioneer authorized independent service
company to carry out repair work.
If the unit does not operate normally due to external effects
such as static electricity disconnect the power plug from
the outlet and insert again to return to normal operating
conditions.

Disconnect the power plug from the outlet, and insert again.

the CEC function, turn OFF the HDMI CONTROL setting on the
connected player. Refer to the relevant device's instruction
manual for details.
