    5 years ago I bought a Pioneer VSX-808 RDS Receiver. Recently the
    volume button couldn't be adjusted anymore and more recently when I
    turned the receiver on it shut down itself all the time and on the
    display it's reading "POWER OFF".

    I'm a technician myself and to fix the problems I'm now looking for the
    service manual (not the owner's manual) with the technical schemes of
    the receiver. Can someone help me please??

    The obvious first step would be to check the PS and the Audio PO components
    for shorts and faulty components.

  3. Usually a bad output IC - I believe yours used them. Fairly expensive from
    Pioneer, and there are usually no subs, at least no cheaper ones. They got
    wise and quit printing the STK number as part of the lot number on the backs
    of the chips. Try to measure a DC offset at any one channel. That would
    point you to the bad chip. You can measure at the white emitter resistor in
    front of each one. There's probably 5 or 6 resistors total.
