Question about Pioneer PRO-100 TV

1 Answer

TV picture shakey/blurry

My TV is shaky/blurry with a bit of a squeaky sound. And when I first turn it on the whole screen doesn't come on. The screen is in the middle of the TV for awhile. The red light also came on today and it wouldn't turn on at all. It took a couple of times to turn on. What can I do? Thank You, Rachael

Re: TV picture shakey/blurry

Rachael, The Pioneer PRO-100 is a rear projection 51 inch TV of 1000 lines resolution. I do not know enough about the type of projection to answer this question. They use Liquid Crystal Display panels through which a powerful light shines, or Texas DLP micro-mirrors which reflect the light. As the deflection is digital in nature it does not `die' like a C R Tubed television. Are you saying now it won't come on at all, and shows the red light? I can only think it is like a projector and has fans to cool the lamp. To start with the fan may get squeaky due to a dry bearing (common problem). Eventually the fan will stop or not supply enough air and the lamp will overheat and burn out. They cost 250£ to 450£ to replace.(UHP mercury vapour lamps) In your TV it seems that something in the optics has bad distortion and de-focussing due to the overheated lamp. This could be much more expensive to put right.

Blurry Picture

I know these models came out around 2001, and I'm afraid that the problem sounds like it is related to the bulb going bad.

This article outlines how many TVs from around the turn of the century have had similar problems to yours.

I know bulb replacement is an option. You may want to call around to TV repair shops and see what your options are. In the end, though, it may be time to start saving up for a new TV.

It sound like you have a leaky capacitor in your power supply, or video circuit, that is causing noise in the picture. I would have to refer you to a television technician in your area. This would seem like a simple repair. Leaky capacitors can become stable after they warm up.

I hope that I have provided the correct information that will assist you in the resolution of this issue. If you have any questions, please post back with a comment to this thread.

The picture is blurry. does anyone have a solution to this or has anyone had a similar problem.

I have a blurry screen and the top of it the picture is curved a bit. I was told to adjust the focus knob but I don't know where that is in the back of the TV. I took off the back and couldn't find it. I also tried to adjust the manual convergence and the red would not adjust only the blue would align. Any suggestions.

If the power to the tv was on when the power came back on it may have caused a power surge through the tv and could have knocked the allinment of the colour tubes out a bit you could try to reallin them via small screws on the colour tubes but you need the tv on an it can be difficult.

I would check the power supply and the tuner section. This sounds like the low voltage powers supply is going bad or that the tuner section might be going bad. Does the picture fade to snow? Also I would suggest that you let a TV Technician take a look at the TV to determine what is happening. Most likely it is the power supply.

Thank you,

I hope this helps,
