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 unplugging the Pioneer for an extended period of time?

Yes, as that would be due to residual power. The unplugging would simulate a soft RESET and discharge this residual power.

Please post back results / observations of the above once tried.

still won't turn on

Extended period of time would be as it implies, more than mere minutes, even perhaps up to an hour.

There are other checks that can be done.

Once all tried and by process of elimination, then it can be determined if it were a glitch or an internal hardware failure.
