Pls confirm if on your Pioneer Media Box PDPRO3U, aside from the E01 error:

  • media receiver light is red;
  • tv light is either green or flashing red.
Should this be the case, then possibilities are:
  • cable connection (component wires in correct order, green-y, blue-pb, and red-pr,);
  • cable box, incoming cable signal/connection;
  • Media Box:
  1. Try completely shutting the TV and components down, (off) taking the top off the media receiver and blowing all the dust away or preferably vacuum clean carefully, make sure the circuits are not loose. Do this very carefully, put it back and plug it in.
  2. (if out of warranty and) you are considering a DIY (do-it-yourself), pls check the set link wire’s from c/b to c/b front right inside media box. There are 12 wire’s in total 11 black 1 red, the red one brings the media box out of red standby to green on. More often, bad contacts This of course require familiarity with electronic components & circuitry, knowledge of safe working practices on electrically powered devices.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

You might need to update the software or reinstall the software from the software cd that came withit if one did. And make sure you don't have it on auto time off.

    The power supply in the media box looks faulty.dismantle the media box and remove the LARGE power supply board and check for dry solder joints. Sure enough, where the heatsink would be soldered onto the board the joints will in a bad way. It happens due to 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.just resolder the joints and (touch wood) it will be proper after that.

    do not have soldering knowledge calling a technician is a better option.but this is the problem.

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!
