Pioneer VSX-1131 no video

Odd thing here.

Had the Pioneer receiver since 2017, served me well. Suddenly however I no longer get video output.

I have tried the typical reset, power unplugged, swap cables. Still nothing, my Samsung TV says no input.

A few odd things about that no input though. The TV still registers when the reciever turns on and it displays it on the input list, just says no input video when selected.

CEC controls from the TV also work with the receiver connected devices. So some signals are obviously still passing over the HDMI. Plugging devices directly into the TV work fine, so all indications are the receiver being the weak link.

Is this sign of the video board being shot?

Are you getting any audio output through BD and CBL/SAT hdmi inputs?

Sorry forgot to mention. Yes audio output is fine and the receiver is playing this fine, just not passing through the video.


do a full factory reset on the amp---
I think its
1. While holding down [AUTO/DIRECT] on the main unit, press [STANDBY/ON] on the main unit.

2. "Clear" appears on the display and the unit returns to standby. Do not unplug the power cord until "Clear" disappears from the display.
