The specific issue with your panel requires and authorized dealer to open it up and replace parts. Since you got it 2 days ago, send it back to your dealer and get a new one. Its as easy as that
You must have more time than I do on your hands to check how many threads I posted to. It took me all of about 2 seconds to cut and paste after another member suggested that I go to the 141 thread. That would be the 141 thread that I was totally unfamiliar with since this is my first time here.
I'm sorry that I haven't had the time to rack up 10,000 posts like you have, and become adept at navigating this forum yet, like yourself. I'm sure you were new and just starting out once upon a time, and if you spent the money that I did and were experiencing what I am you would possibly Google the subject and try to figure something out while you were waiting to hear back from your service people. At least that is what I did and Google brought me to this forum.
As for sending it back to my dealer, considering how difficult it is to get your hands on these panels now that they are discontinued and the fact that I live in a very rural area in which I have no close dealer, this is not an option for me.
I was merely trying to find out if anyone else experienced this, and if so, how they handled it. My mission was to get some advice or guidance, not have someone scrutinize my post and keep an official count on how many threads I posted it to.
For the rest of the people that might actually care, I did finally speak to my not-very-local authorized Pioneer service provider, and they informed me that this condition is quite unusual on this model, that it is "one of the boards" but they don't know which one yet, as they are waiting for Pioneer tech support to call them back with details and information on how to tackle this issue. I was also told it would probably be late next week before they are able to come to start the service procedure.
I promise I will not attach this post on any other thread in this forum. I now know that the thread police are watching every move I make and I don't want to be in violation of "double posting" again!
