Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

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

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the Pioneer.

Appreciate the additional information.

Have you checked the speakers and their wiring to the Pioneer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My son put all of this together...I am not an expert in wiring speakers.
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

I understand.

Would you like to try a RESET?

I tried pressing the standby and enter button nothing happened.
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

Yes, that would be the user's reset.

Would you like to consider a technician's RESET?

A word of caution; considering that "...smelt something burning...", it is possible that components have started to fail causing this blinking blue light as an indicator that it has kicked in auto-protect mode. Performing the technician's RESET would bypass the auto-protect mode.

It either clears the fault or cause the burning to start again; a 50-50 chance.

Would you venture and try the technician's RESET?
