Pioneer VXS-D601

I have a VXS-D601 Pioneer Receiver and it is great, excellent sound, very loud, and is attached to (2) Jensen uprights. However, It now will not power-up. When the unit is functioning properly...you press the power button and you will hear one (1) "Click"...after about 5-6 seconds it will "Click" again and the unit will power-up. However, now you only get the one "Click"...it never "Click's" again...the unit is DEAD silent. Soneone told me it my be the power supply, but I don't know if it is or where to get one if it was. Anyone have any ideas or information about fixing this problem or having it fixed by someone? Thank you.

The second click would be the protection relay. Not hearing it means a possible problem in one or both power amplifier channels. Could be as simple as a few bad capacitors, or bad output transistors and a handful of other parts.
Time to find a Pioneer authorized repair facility.
