Pioneer Elite Pro 710HD Rear-Projection Television

I was watching my Pioneer Elite Pro 710HD Rear-Projection Television and it seemed to have lost power without my touching anything.
I noticed that the red indicator light on the front, marked "standby" continued flashing.
I shut down immediately and left it off for a couple of minutes and then tried to power back up, with no success.
Is there a reset sequence I can follow?
I bagan reading one, but lost my net connection and do not recall the page I found that info on and could not seem to find it again.

    No reset sequence except that once it has gone into protection like this it has to be unplugged or the master power button on the left side of the control panel punched in, to totally deprive it of power. Only then can you turn it on again, as this is its (only) reset sequence.

    Usually it's the convg IC's. It could also be the PS board having a problem with its cold solder joints or a blown fuse in the central grouping of 4.

    Here's some general info about the power supply problem on these sets, which only affects the PS board itsefl -

    Your Pioneer 710HD has the classic cold solder joint problem endemic to all of this series of Elite CRT RPTV. The power supply - PS - board needs to be resoldered virtually completely. It's a time consuming, tedious job that if you get wrong, who knows what could happen when you turn it on again? So don't even think about resoldering it if you are an amateur at the soldering process.

    I do this job every day then run it out in my test 610HD - same series - and then equip your board with a lifetime warranty on the resoldering work I have done. Please contact me directly, google Mr Bob and calibrations and Image Perfection. Unless you do resoldering every day as a professional assembler or are an experienced repair tech, I cannot in good conscience advise you to do this yourself. Far too much is riding on it.

    However, if you are highly experienced at soldering, resolder everything but the heat sinks, the test points, and whatever has already been resoldered and is still glossy and gleaming, like fresh resoldering is. The solder used in the original assembly of that board was far too thin, which results in these cold solder joints.

    And don't do it part way! Many joints that are not bad now will be soon, trust me, and if you have only resoldered just the ones that are bad now - the early ones to go out - and continue to use it, you make your board that much more susceptible to the far more dangerous ones that happen later on, which can damage boards downline from the power supply board.

    I am the only repair person I know of offering a lifetime warranty. Even Pioneer does not do that. In fact I have permanently corrected many rebuilt Pioneer boards when they've gone out later. Pix are available at www.avsforum.com.

    In your case chances are you have not heeded the warning signs of cold solder joints: intermittent ops, blue flashes, fluctuations in the brightness of your pic and other instabilities.

    In the case where one of these units turns on then turns off again - LED in front goes green, then immediately back to red before a picture has a chance to appear - it's "going into protection". Chances are something downline has now been damaged because of the instability of the PS board, which is responsible for powering up the entire unit.

    What I would recommend if it's "gone too far" and the unit will not stay on anymore, is a troubleshooting session with me on the phone, which is something I require before allowing a PS board to be sent to me for resoldering if the set's not staying on. Luckily, these sets were designed with on board diagnostics that can be read by technicians from far away.

    If it goes green then stays green but no pic appears - even graphics like the Menu - then one of the cold solder joints that powers up the section that powers up your picture has opened up and is now staying open. This has always been remedied 100% by the resoldering process.

    If it powers up correctly upon turnon from dead cold, DON'T PUSH IT! If it still has intemittencies, it's in a very precarious, dangerous condition. Many sets have been run past their warning signs, and by the time I get notified and can lend a hand, they are considered totalled and are abandoned. Don't let that happen to you. RUN IT FOR NO MORE THAN 40 SECONDS, and power it down again and unplug it. DO NOT ALLOW IT UP TO NORMAL OPERATING TEMP AGAIN - EVEN ONCE - UNTIL FIXED PROPERLY.

    If it turns on from dead cold and works properly even tho intermittencies have happened in the past, this is the best case scenario. It means it can be resoldered properly and you'll be home free. Or sent to me for resoldering if you are not a highly experienced repair tech or assembler, in which case you'll get my lifetime warranty on the resoldering work..

No reset sequence. usually when the protection kicks in without any warning, it's the convergence ICs needing replacement.

Hello how do i set the convergence manualy on a pioneer elite pro-710hd projection tv i dont have the remote and dont know how to bring the menue up on the tv


You MUST have the remote to perform service operations on the Elites. Look on ebay or do a google search for Pioneer 710 remote.
There is no way to manually do convergence without a remote, and no way to call up the convergence menu.

Can I use a universal remote to adjust my settings for the elite Pro 710 HD?


I doubt it, we have in our shop about five of their remotes and each only works on one or two models--bite the bullet to get another or if you have the original but it does not work, most shops can fix that for a reasonable price.

I have 65 inch pro elite 710hd 6 years old. Do I have to get analog box


hello,
Yes you still have to get digital to analog converter. Although you can feed a hd signal through the component inputs, the tv is still set up to only receive analog signals through the coaxial input
hope this helps

Pioneer elite tv turns off from a pop sound and manual says-will


It is most likely the power supply. Do not try to fix this yourself. There are LETHAL voltages inside such a TV, which can persist for WEEKS after it has been turned off.

The convergence chip is going in my pioneee elite


Yes there are two ICs in your model they are around 20.00 each for quality ICs. Cheaper ICs are available but I wouldnt recommend them as theyre most likely the inferior chineese made ICs and they fail quickly.
