The only way out of this is to reset the TV back to 'shipping condition'. Go to Analogue Mode and then press Menu. In SETUP pick 'shipping condition' and ok your way through. Then switch off and back on again after a minute, and let it retune etc.

The annoying screen messages now disappear after a couple of seconds. Viola

Pioneer plasma 50 inch tuner problem. unit shuts down, won't turn back on, display displays fault code e01, power button flashes red, sometimes it works, then the next day it does it again


The power supply in the media box is usually the most likely culprit.

Dismantle the media box and remove the LARGE power supply board and check for dry solder joints. Where the heatsink is soldered onto the board the joints may be in a bad way. This is usually a symptom of the fact that the media boxes for V3 Pio's get very hot - all that expanding and contracting is likely to create dry solder joints. Taking the box apart shouldn't be a problem for anyone with a reasonable level of IT type skills!

Resolder the joints and you should be good to go. Whilst I can't guarantee that this is the definitive fix for this problem it seems to work for a while and is just a problem that many of these units have.

The solution is an easy fix. Ignore anyone telling you to take it to a service center or to replace the convergence driver. You need to access the service menu on your television by using your remote control:

DRIVE CONVERGENCE Adjustment (Using remote control)

•Use the inner RGB box pattern.

(1)Set the [SLEEP TIMER] key to 0 min.

(2)Press the [DISPLAY] key and the [VIDEO STATUS]key simultaneously.

(3)Press the [9] key to display the RGB box pattern.

(4)Select the R mode by pressing the [DISPLAY] key.

(5)Adjust the R mode to setting as same as G mode bypressing the [CH ]+ / [CH -] key.

(6)Select the B mode pressing by the [DISPLAY] key.

(7)Adjust the B mode to setting as same as G mode bypressing the [VOL] - / [VOL +] key.

(8)Check to see that the cross pattern is white. If thecross pattern is not white, readjust (5) to (6).

That's it, your color is now corrected. Yes, I know...your welcome.

Is my Hitachi 60V500A tv digital ready for local tv? or do I have buy one of those digital convertor boxes.


You do need a separate HD Receiver, HD Satellite, and or HD Cable Box to receive HD. It only has a Standard NTSC Tuner built in.
I hope this helps,

Front power indicator blinks, clicking/high pitch sound


  1. This how to is to repair hard drive, software and some firmware issues that can arise on specific cable DVR and DAC and DCT boxes, First instructions are for Scientific Atlanta hardware. Firstly, one should be certain that the cable box has the coax (cable antenna wire) hooked up to the CABLE IN or RF IN on the box itself and be connected to a "hot" outlet - one that you KNOW works. Test it by connecting a TV directly to outlet. If you get a weak signal, the box will too. Digital boxes require a clean SNR. Remove in-line "surge protectors" on the coax. These prevent the signal from being sent by your cable provider to your box.
  2. Scientific Atlanta DVR or High Def boxes:These need to be "booted" or reset when certain errors occur. No audio on certain channels when SAP is NOT set to ON and confounding error codes that one can't seem to get out of. Common yet confounding errors are : No Audio on DVR Playback. No Audio on Certain Various Channels (ruling out SAP which can be enabled through the box, OR the television set itself) there are easy ways to test. If some channels audio is in Spanish when they are normally in English...the obviously you will check SAP first.
  3. Disc errors. On screen error on your TV that says something like..."there are problems with your storage disc.." or upon DVR playback instead of playing your program it loops upon itself and plays nothing.
  4. two different steps to reboot box: Simultaneously press VOL+ VOL- and "INFO" buttons on box itself, not from remote. Box will then display "bOOt" and shut down totally. Do not press ANY buttons or try to power on said box. Wait for the correct time to display on the box. This process can take anytime from 40 seconds to hours, depending on how fast the cable company's servers are responding at that moment and whether or not you have enough of a cable signal to fire up the download process. If you call customer service for your provider if this does not work, most likely a truck roll will be run for a tech to come out to your residence to fix the signal issue.
  5. When the correct time display is on the Scientific Atlanta box, THEN power on box and problems should be solved. An alternate way to reboot box is to simply unplug unit from power supply and replugging it in. Simply powering it on and off with the POWER ON button will not solve anything.
  6. On a Motorola box and/or DVR, the easy VOL+ VOL- and INFO will not work to reboot. Remove AC power plug from wall socket and wait 30 seconds to a minute while box is powered ON. Plug back in to wall socket.Box will "do it's own thing" and power itself on on it's own after the cycle has been successful (30 - 60 seconds) and the box should power itself back to the ON without you doing anything. Time will not display on Motorola"General Instrument boxes unless you set it up to do so in the settings mode.
  7. Common IControl/On Demand errors:
  8. MOTOROLA BOX Error 225 : A billing lock to prevent you from ordering pay per views. If your account is past due, or if you have an order to move to a new address in the service provider's "system", this is a preventive measure to keep customers from loading up tons of expensive pay per views and skipping out. Your cable company cannot over-ride this error. If you are not in above situations, your provider can "up" the limit on the box and clear it so you can order PPV through your remote control.
  9. SCIENTIFIC ATLANTA: for above mentioned error code, your SA box will display not a code but a prompt to contact your provider by telephone. Same issue.
  10. MOTOROLA BOX ERRORS 204...203.. 207..these may be easily solved by simply reseating the coax and then rebooting box.
  11. SCIENTIFIC ATLANTA ERRORS 2207: reboot box. This is a general code meaning the box has lost contact with the server. All of your iControl /On Demand orders come through your local cable head-end's servers. If and when it gets overloaded and times out, error 2207/207 will happen. Most of the time this is temporary. Reboot box, try again in 15-20 minutes.
  12. DVR BOX not displaying/recording/playing items:
  13. Reboot. Good chance of fixing.
  14. If your TV displays "One Moment, Please. Your Channel Should Be Available Shortly..." this is a SIGNAL issue. Reseat the line running from wall to the CABLE/RF IN on the box and at the outlet at wall. If no joy, call cable operator.

No digital reception with HD ready TV.


Someone did not explain to you what HDTV "Ready" means. It means you do not have a ATSC tuner in it to except over the air digital signal. The only way you will get digital reception is either from a HD Cable box with RGB outputs that plug into your RGB inputs, or being on Satellite connecting the same way. Seven years ago manufacturers never made it easy to understand and Salesmen only made it worse. So in short the term HDTV Ready meant it can, with a BOX.
