    I have a 503mxe and this afternoon it suddenly switched itself off.
    i turned off the power and swiched it back on and it came on in standby mode so I pressed the power button and the green light came on for a second then went off, leaving the red light flahing twice every 5 seconds.
    I disconnected the 5002 card to see if that was the problem and it was still the same.
    doe's anyone know if there is a reset switch and where it is? or does anyoone have any ideas as to the cause? I have the mains running through a surge protector and have phoned john lewis who will send an engineer.
    Typical I'm on holiday and the premiership has started. God i'm p**sed off.

    Cheers Mark

    Mark,
    have a look on the Pio site and see if you can get the service manual to see what the flashing light is meaning. I'll have a look to see if I already downloaded it.

    This happened to my 503MXE a couple of months ago, but it's alright now and hasn't happened since :clap:. I think it's due to turning it off then on again too quickly - it must be some protection circuit to stop damage. I use a Pronto and it can send the standy signal twice if I'm not careful. Anyway the solution was to turn it off at the mains, leave it for a while and then turn it back on.

    The MXE is basically protecting itself against some form of internal problem.

    Call your dealer and they can have Pioneer service out to you in a day or two and they can most often resolve any issues on site.

    Best regards
