Pioneer VSX-921 EU version - 3rd times broken
I have european version of VSX-921.
I bought it in 2012.
Unfortunately it was during all the time I have it 2 times in repair.
First was replaced: AMP-7 ASSY in 2014.
Next time was FRONT ASSY
Every time the fault was properly diagnosed by receiver (I mean on the display the proper MCACC light was flashing and the unit cannot be switched on).
But now I can't find the fault (but I know that my amp has broken for the third time). I have the service repair manual and operating manual. But in those two documents there isn't exactly the combination which I have now.
When I switch on the receiver, watch the (for example 2 hour) movie and switch it off - the receiver doesn't normally behave. It switch off but Advanced MCACC and HDMI lights are non-stop lit on the front panel, and I can't turn it on again. I must disconnect (take out) the cable from the electric socket and wait for a while to reset the amplifier. Then when I plug in it again the front panel all lights are off and I can turn it on (also the settings are gone - i must again do the MCACC calibration)
If I only knew what means that combination of ADVANCED MCACC and HDMI lights.
I'm hesitate to take the amp to repair because I know that probably will broke again in the near future. (so the 2 times of repair and now the third time wont' be enough probably; and when I count all the money which I spend on him - price of bought and 2 repairs and now the 3rd repair I will end with the sum of new model - but I rather wont buy next new Pioneer. They have made perfect amps until 2008- 9 From then I think they are making only garbage which will failure and need repairs like mine.
Please help me what should I do? What this error lights combination means?
Thanks for help
