Pioneer PDP - RO6U Plasma: Says starting up, please wait when turning on. Can't get past this screen. I have tried unplugging and plugging everything back in and am still getting the same error. Are there ant other possible solutions to solving this problem other that having someone from Pioneer come out to the house?

    Thanks Sammy... Should I be holding the power button on the TV monitor or the Pioneer box?  Also should I hold for 20 seconds before or after powering up.  Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question.  Thanks for your help.

    I unplugged both the plug from the TV screen and the Pioneer box. After waiting an hour, held the power button to the TV for 20 seconds. After doing this, I plugged both sources back in and tried to turn the TV on with the remote. TV is turning on but I am still getting the same error. Is there anything else I can try??

    Pioneer Plasma PDP-RO60: Can't get past the screen "Starting up please wait" in a grey box at the bottom of the screen. TV and receiver eventually shut themselves off after about a minute and blue light continues to flash on the receiver. Volume on TV works but no picture. I have tried unplugging and plugging back in in different orders. Not sure what else to try. Anyone's suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    1) The tv shuts down after about a minute of displaying the error screen.
    2) The led on the tv turns red.  The media box flashes blue about 12 times and then stops for a few seconds and starts flashing again.
    3) When the tv is displaying "starting up" the led's on the TV and Media Box are solid blue.

    The model of the tv is PDP-436PU/KUCXC

Few questions and I might be able to get you an answer. 1) does the tv stay on for as long as you let it displaying this screen? or does it shut down after awhile. 2) If it shuts down what does the led's do on the front of the tv and or media box. 3) what are the led's on the front of the tv and or media box doing while the tv is displaying "starting up".

Let me know and I will be able to better assist you.

    This problem is listed on pioneers technical website, sorry to give you the bad news but your DTB Assy is most likely defective. This is a board inside of the MRU and should really be changed by a professional. unfortunately its probably going to cost you somewhere between $800-$1000. If you want to try this yourself you can contact pioneer and see if they will sell you the part. part # AWE1305 you can also find it on i think. remember im not there to diagnose your set and troubleshoot it so this is the best answer I can give you with the information that i have. I am however 90% sure this will fix your problem. So if you decide to buy the part and fix it yourself you need to check with the company you are getting it from and see what there return policy is and if they are going to charge you a restocking fee for returning the part. Hope this answers all your questions. If you need more help or info just ask!

    Good luck!

    You have to unplug the power source of the TV. While it is unplugged you have to press and hold the power button on the TV. It is a step to discharge any static charges which gets developed. It would not show anything. After 20 seconds you may plug the power in and try turning on the TV again.

MY Pioneer Plasma PDP RO6U is not responding. The Standy light and Rec Time lights were both red and would not turn on either by remote or by pressing the on button on the receiver. I have unplaugged it...


As you have already Reset the TV by unplugging it for Few Minutes, and still it did not work, more often it is a Hardware Fault.

Now, I would need few details from you :-

1. Tell me the Number of Blinks?
2. How old the TV is?
3. Do you have any Soldering or Electronic Repair Experience?

Let me know,so that we could Proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have a plasma tv that has two black lines about 50mm wide running vertically in the centre of the screen

Three kinds of detects count for this problem. It could be the Logic board, or the Logic Buffer board, or the PDP panel. Just drop your tv to the warranty depot shop to repair.

My Pioneer Plasma Display Model PDP-424mV must be set on a timer as it will turn off approximately 90 seconds after being turned on . I cannot find the "timer" menu selection. How do I fix this?

try looking on your remote, look for a sleep button and proceed to deactivate the sleep timer using the arrow buttons. if this is not the case, then perhaps your internal cpu is allowing the TV to start, then detecting a problem and forcing the tv to turn off again, though i don't see how it would be possible in this case. there are many others better suited to answer that question other than me, but the sleep button is a good start =)

My pdp r03u has an error code e01

I have a 50" Unit with this same part, I called Pioneer and told them what was happening, they asked me to count the flashes on the monitor power indicater light and when I told them the problem they told me that it was a dry solder weld, I called a tv repair tech and told him what was going on, he had never worked on Plasma Tv's and was very hesitant to start I told him if I just brought in the Media Box and had him check the solder joints how much would he charge he told me to try he wouldnt charge me anything, I jumped on that! he saw a few issues and fixed them, I brought the unit home plugged it into the tv and the tv works just fine!

Pioneer plasma media receiver problem

The Pioneer multi media reciever box is only serviceable from the manufacture. They should have authorized service reps that they equiped to do service for Pioneer devices. They normaly change boards to service it. The regular service man would only be able to fix a simple cold solder connecton or fix some other simple part of it.

Contact the place where you bought it to find out about servicing it. You may find it cheaper and easier to simply replace it completely. It is very possible that there is no service support for this box. Get an estimate before accepting to service it.

Most of the small electronics of today are throw-away anyways...
