See if you can spot a pattern to the failures. I suspect that it is heat related. In the time that the unit ran all day, I suspect that the volume level was lower. Am I correct? If so, then either there are poor solder connections which are being effected by heat or there is a part that is defective. Are there any other symptoms or does the unit just shut off? If you attempt to turn it on, will it play for a while? If you can solder, look for solder connections that look grainy or have rings and resolder them.

Keep us posted on your progress,

Dan

I set the volume to 40. After a little while the volume starts dropping down. If you do not turn the volume back up the volume will eventually go to zero all by it self and turn off the system.

Amp shutting down when volume gets too high


Easy! You either have a surround speaker wired backwards or there is a break in the wire leading to a surround speaker that is allowing the +&- to arc together. your amp shutsvoff as a protection to keep the arc from reaching the mother board. replace your wires man!!

Overload...


Pioneer posted this on it's Canadian Web Site:

Poor wiring connections, bad wires or a bad speaker may cause this. As you increase the volume, you will increase the amount of current you are drawing from the receiver. To troubleshoot this issue, try the following:
  1. Disconnect each speaker wire connection. Inspect for any frayed or damaged wiring and replace it.
  2. Check the impedance of the speakers; make sure they are properly rated for your stereo. In most cases, they need to be 8 ohms. Only a few Pioneer receivers will support lower impedance.
  3. If the problem still continues, try these steps:
    1. Turn the receiver off.
    2. Remove one speaker.
    3. Turn the receiver on.
    4. Increase the volume.
If the receiver overloads, repeat steps 1-4 (selecting a different speaker each time). If you disconnect a certain speaker and the receiver no longer overloads, have this speaker checked at a service center. It could have a bad speaker component, like a tweeter, sub-woofer, or even a bad crossover.

Turning volume up on my Denon AVR-485 AMP causes it to turn off


Speaker Impedance:
When speaker systems A and B are used separately, speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16 ohms can be connected for use as front speakers
Be careful when using two pairs of front speakers (A + B) at the same time if their impedance is less than 12 ohms.
The protector circuit may be activated of the set is played for long periods of time at high volumes with an impedance lower than specified are connected.
