Pioneer VSX-D414 was muted and no sound when unmuted.

I have a Pioneer VSX-D414 Audio/Video Multi-Channel Receiver. It has worked fine for quite some time. Yesterday it was muted for several hours. When unmuted there is no sound. Only the static.

I have powered of with the button and unplugged it from the surge protector.

I tried a system reset per the manual, but did not get the responses I was supposed to get.

Have unplugged the cables from the TV and the unit and powered off.

Checked the speaker connections even though it had not been moved. Found one loose wire and fixed it. No Help.

What next?


I tried the Tone Test and it failed. Just a hum no matter what. I think it's time for a new one.
