Hello and sorry to hear you're having trouble with your amp.

These parts are not available to the end user, they are only sold to authorized pioneer service centers.

While this would be possible to fix, it is simply not practical to do so. The part likely is not even available at this point due to age, but even if it can be found the cost of the part alone is usually about $700 for the board. By the time you pay labor costs, we're looking at twice what the value is for the entire receiver.

This is also a 2008 model, it is double its service life at this point, and simply not worth the investment. Even if you fix this, other parts would be expected to fail at any time now.

I would recommend either replacing the system entirely,

or using it without the hdmi as a workaround by connecting the hdmi devices directly to the tv and running an optical cable back to the pioneer to use it just for sound.

I can recommend replacement amps for you if you'd prefer to go that route.

My apologies for the news,

Eldon

Hey there that wasn’t quite the answer i was hoping for but was what I expected. Sadly i have a Pioneer elite sc 95 with the exact same problem and that just over a year old. That’s the reason for trying to get them fixed.

Your'e very welcome, unfortunately even for the newer models, they still just aren't worth fixing.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

Thank you, ***** ***** a nice day,
