Hello, This is a fault on the Mainboard causing this false "internal speaker" message. It's common with this set, and other Pioneer sets. The only thing you can try is removing the speaker cables from the set (which is the only external cause of this problem) and if it persists beyond that the Mainboard needs to be replaced. The part is: Pioneer AWV2318 (ANP2149-D). A shop will typically charge £180-200 for this type of repair or if you can find a source that sells used/pulled parts you can inquire about the mainboard and replace it yourself (it's a plug and play component).

Other than that, I'm sorry for the bad news and wish there were a quick fix.
