Pioneer makes a variety of wireless-enabled media receivers. These receivers can be programmed with audio and video apps like Pandora, Spotify, and Roku. These receivers can occasionally experience minor problems, such as connectivity issues or unresponsive navigation, just like many other Web-connected electronic devices. It is possible to resolve the problem by performing a factory reset, whether it be of the network settings or the whole system.
Before You Start and Selecting a Reset Option
Power cycle the receiver before you attempt to reset it. Disconnect it from your wall, wait 10-30 seconds, then plug it back into the wall to check if it works. If the problem persists, try to reset just your network settings. This clears all Wi-Fi router settings and leaves behind the rest of your system data. A system factory reset will permanently erase all data in your system, such as sound settings and account synchronizations. Only do this type of reset after you’ve exhausted all other possible solutions.
Reset Network Connection Settings
The Network Setup menu can be used to initiate a factory reset of your network settings. To navigate to this interface press “Net” on the remote and then choose “Home Menu.” Click on the arrow pad and select “Factory Reset”. Then, choose “Start”. Next, confirm your request by clicking “OK”. The device will take a few minutes to process the request. Next time you sign in to the system, you will be asked to choose a network and re-enter your network key.
Factory Reset of the System
Before starting the system reset, disconnect all external devices (such as your iPod or TV) and plug them in. After switching the receiver to standby mode, hold down “Band” while pressing and holding “Standby/On” for about 2 seconds. When “Reset” appears on the display, release “Band” and then press and hold the “Standby/On” button for about two seconds. Once you see “Reset?” is displayed. You can confirm by pressing “ALC/Standard surr” The display will show an “OK” message to ensure that the factory reset has taken place.
You can refer to your user manual for more troubleshooting tips. For example, network tips, power saving techniques, and best home configuration suggestions. These guidelines will help to resolve a system problem and prevent the need for a factory reset. It is possible to reset your receiver’s system if you need to. However, it will take a few moments, depending on how much data or other content is stored.
