Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, have you tried a RESET of the Pioneer VSX-01TXH ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Reset four times with no avail.

Reset four times, but no success.
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for allowing me time to compose my reply.

I understand and presumably the user's method. Did the display showed "RESET?"

There is a technician's RESET but may and can cause (further) damage where the faulty part may overheat. Would you be comfortable giving this a try?

This is both an attempt of a fix and as a test by "brute" bypass.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Able to give it a try.
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

All others would point to an internal hardware issue.

If the above is not corrective, please confirm that you are considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter and even a soldering iron?

Equally important, could you make use of the repair/Service Manual or at the very least, the schematic diagrams?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have the tools, but no schematics/service manual.
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

I can provide both the Service manual and the schematics should reference to it may be needed.

Were you able to try the Bypass Mode?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Unit is not in place/connected for me to test currently.
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

I understand.

Please post back with an update upon try of the Release (bypass) Mode (technician's reset).

Additionally, re-check/re-tighten the screws at the rear of the unit. These and the rear panel serve as the common GND BUS of a number of circuits.
