    Hi

    Ny trusty Pioneer ex-Ondigital box is stuck in standby. Time shows on front panel but it won't switch on.

    Tried...

    -switching it on and off
    -unplugging it for a while
    -using my pronto instead of the remote
    -turning it on holding the front panel buttons (different combinations of buttons too)

    Any other ideas? Anyone know how to 'reboot' it (if you can)?

    Thanks
    Andrew

    PS Its no longer for sale in the Classifieds section...

    The way to 'reboot' it is to disconnect the mains for 30 minutes or so. But you've already tried that.......

    Whatever you do, don't eat it. It is an organism that tastes delicious, it is addicitive, makes you feel really good about yourself, and then consumes you from the inside outwards.

    Seriously, my Pioneer has exactly the same appearance, including the very thin strand of 'stuff' that goes from the lump at the bottom to the top of the component.

    From your (excellent) pictures, this looks like normal Evostick-like goo that I see on the occasional production PCB in all sorts of consumer equipment.
    More important, the electrolytic capacitor seems to have no sign of bulging (which is what can happen as they fail).

    Hi

    Thanks for the suggestions. Our good friends at Pioneer have now collected the box to fix it. Very efficient they were too.

    Will report back...

    Regards
    Andrew
