Pioneer VSX-528 problems


Novice Member
Hi all.
I'm new in this forum, sorry is something wrong.
Recently I bought used Pioneer unit VSX-528.
Have a problem with LAN access, looks like lan card not responding at all. Errors on online services like net radio and media server.
I try to do an update, but can't do it because of lan fail.
Is there any other way to fix it?

Can you try downloading the update onto a usb stick and doing the update from there.


Novice Member
Doesn't help as well. I think maybe there is a way to do somethink manually. Flash straight to chip.
I reed somwhere it might be a capacitor problem because of lose power. Or some security fuse.

It doesn't work. Cant reach update state. When press home button I have mesage cannot select.
So when you go to Menu->Other-> and choose Firmware Update, you get Cannot Select message?
What about your router/switch lights?Are they blinking upon connecting receiver?


Novice Member
No lights blinking at all on the router. And I dont have option like update on meniu. Also no any network setup menu.
