Question Pioneer VSX-924 only works in "pure direct" mode


Novice Member
Hey guys,

Got a "broken" 924 that seems to somewhat work. At first I had to power it on by pressing the STANDBY for 5secs and after a reset it seems to start normally every time now. However I can only get sound when using "pure direct" mode. Any other mode gives nothing.

What I've worked so far:

-Audio via BT from my phone works
-Analog inputs also work
-HDMI in/outs seem to work but no audio even in pure direct

Anyone else had similar problems and possibly a fix worth doing?

Go to settings and check firmware version and let me know you see any *** instead numbers.
