Hi all.
This is my first posting, hope I'm at the right place.

I have a Pioneer Amplifier that does not want to power on.
Actually, it does a click, but does not Power on. If I keep pressing on the Power button for 2 seconds (2 to 3 relay clicks), then it powers on. Could that be a relay problem?

I've tested it with a multimeter, and I do have a continuity. So i don't know if this could be a intermittent problem.

What would you say could be the problem?

Thank you for your help.

Post the model of the amplifier, someone may have a solution. Otherwise, guessing in the dark does not work well.
It may be whatever is feeding the relay, the relay itself, of something else....

Thank you. I do hear a click, but no lights, no front panel lights up. The only time it really turns on is when it clicks 3 times (press for two seconds). After that, it works without any problem.

When you say "it works without any problem" are you say that the receiver is fully operational?

Correct. It is fully operational. In fact, I used it all day yesterday without any problem, after turning it on this way.

Connected to it: 1 TV, 6 surround speakers: subwoofer, front left and right, rear left and right and center, 1 Blu-ray, 1 TV terminal
