my pioneer receiver vsx 52 displays error code UE 22

Hello and sorry you're having problems.

How long have you owned the receiver for and when did the problem occur?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The receiver is about 3 years old and it started displaying the error code 2 days ago
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the reply. Have you tried simply unplugging it from power for 5 minutes and plugging it back in as a soft reboot?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I will try
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Okay, I don't have high hopes for this, as the UE22 error is typically generated by cold solder joints in the processor chip- which has been known to be fixed on a user level- but requires removing the top of the receiver. Let me know what happens please.

Do you need any further assistance with this?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I started it back up will see if I get the error code again
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Okay, so the error code was intermittent then? If so this is generally caused by cold solder joints on the processor chip and it's been known to be cured by heating the chip with a heat gun to reflow the solder over those connections.
