Hello, 

I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-56TXi receiver that is having some problems. It freezes and cannot be turned off until I unplug it. Then, the standby light doesn't turn on when I plug it in.  I can only get it to turn on after leaving it unplugged for several hours. Also, when it freezes, it keeps playing audio.  If anyone knows of a fix, or which component could be faulty, please let me know. 

Thanks

Hello Edwin, I also have the VSX-56TXi that is having the exact same freezing issue. Were you able to get the issue resolved? What components did you replace or repair process did you use?

I found several bad capacitors on the main control board and replaced them.  The capacitors I replaced are circled below:

I think the most important capacitor to replace is the disc-shaped one here:

I should note that none of the capacitors that I replaced were bulging or leaking.  I tested them with a cheap tester from eBay like this one:

Although this meter is not as precise as more expensive equipment, it can give you a good idea of which capacitors are way out of tolerance.

This was my favorite/best receiver i ever owned.  great amps and awesome Pioneer sound.  If it had HDMI it would be a receiver to be reckoned with today
