Before I pursue contacting Pioneer, are there any simple things I can check? For example, is there an internal fuse I can get at if I open the unit?
I guess there's some comfort in knowing I'm not alone. Got what I thought was a good deal on this receiver from Newegg. Appeared to work fine for about 6 months. Then it just died. One moment it was working, then the lights went out, and it's been a brick since. I'm not giving up on this yet. If I have any luck, I'll post my findings here.
