Unhappy Is my Pioneer 1021k a goner?

Hi,

We were watching tv last night with the Pioneer in 5.1 and the sound suddenly cut out in all the speakers except for the subwoofer. It didn't matter which source was selected; only the subwoofer would output sound. That would indicate that there was an issue with the amplifier since the sub is connected via preout.

The interesting aspect for this case is that I am able to get sound out of all the speakers when I go into the Pioneer's manual speaker setup screen and attempt to adjust the speaker levels. This indicates that the amp isn't necessarily dead yet and that there isn't a wiring issue with the speakers.

What next should I try to troubleshoot this issue? Or is it a lost cause with this problematic Pioneer receiver and I should cut bait with this new paperweight?

Thanks for all your help!

Adam

Have you tried a factory reset per the manual instructions? I've seen some odd behaviors on my own unit [mirror image HDMI output, for example] as well as having accidentally set the unit's output to Zone 2 when I have no zone 2.
