I have a similar problem with my 1021. I have it hooked to an Apple Airport extreme via an Ethernet cable and it looses connection every few minutes. It to will switch from HMG to internet radio or simply say assigning network. This didn't use to happen. Anyone have any ideas? the only difference was I used to connect to a different router. Thank you

Is the amp section gone on the receiver? I tried different inputs (cable box, game systems, BD, Airplay, etc.) and all the same problem.
I just started having this issue where there is no sound from any of the speakers on any input but I do hear the 'booms' from the subwoofer. Family member was cleaning around the receiver and I'm not sure it they accidentally pressed any buttons or if it's something else.

Any idea how to resolve this?

Firmware Update Error 4


I have a VSX-1021 and there are some delays when playing music through Airplay. I tried to run the firmware update (1-205-081-111-089) with several USB sticks but it always stops at about 50-60% with "Update Error 4". The Internet Update says that the newest firmware is already installed.

Does anybody has any idea how to solve this? I was also looking for the previous firmware version (1-205-081-111-073) but I couldn't find any download file in the Internet. If anybody knows where to get this, I would be glad for help!

No, it does not support 4K. Here's a thread talking about it.

Pioneer VSX-1021 - can it support 4K?

I go back to look at the wires and my UPS must have tripped because I moved something.
Try turning on and hear some pops, then it shuts off.
Now when I plug it in, the red MDACC light just blinks, nothing else.
Tried almost every combo in the book to reset but to no avail.

I think it is toast.

Am I crazy to want to replace it with the VSX-1024?
Other then it not lasting as long as I expected it to, I loved the receiver.
I also have this exact problem. Is there a fix for it ?

" The red MDACC light just blinks, nothing else."

*** Update ***

I found a fix for this problem. I had to try it a few time's but its back to working normally now.

Read where it says, Additionally -> where it talks about releasing the auto-protect mode.

Your unit has BridgeCo firmware failed. If you follow firmware upgrade procedure, you will see *** as last 3 digits in firmware version. Without BridgeCo, firmware upgrade won't work.
