    Default Is my receiver fried?

    werthliving.com

    I have a pioneer vsx 1122 receiver. I was playing music on it with the 5 speakers upstairs, plus zone 2 going in the basement. In zone 2 the speaker wires came out of one of the speakers and they touched, I lost audio. I checked the unit and the mcacc light is flashing (manual says it could mean major problems). I unplugged everything and tried turning it on again but the same thing happen. I tried doing a reset I found in the manual, it does turn on and try to cycle up but then turns off and the mcacc light starts blinking. Can speaker wires touching while it is playing fry the unit?

    Yes, although normally I would expect a short-circuit like that to affect only the output stage of the amplifier channel feeding that particular speaker. Maybe the receiver decides under those circumstances that it should stop trying to do anything until the damage is fixed. Contact Pioneer customer service for advice. It should not be a big deal to get the receiver repaired. The question would be whether the cost would be such as to make it more attractive simply to replace the receiver altogether.

    Thanks for the response MDRiggs. I had a feeling it wasn't good. Should all the speakers still be ok? Haven't had the chance to call Pioneer yet. Assuming it would cost $100+ to fix this thing, I will probably buy something new (getting my tax return back soon!).

    Would the Denon X2000 work well with the Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System and Sony SS-B3000 for zone 2? I definitely want something with 2 zones. Any input would be appreciated.

    The speakers should be fine. And there's nothing exotic about them, so any decent 7.1 receiver with dual-zone capability should work fine.

    Sounds like it's fried.

    Got rid of malik, it was a bogus post and obviously a bogus member. He copied nearly word for word the original post. Nonsense.

    Yeah - I'm supposed to have restraint, but I have a good sense about ridiculous spammers. They don't hide well.
