Question about Pioneer SD-P5795W 57" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Pioneer SD P5071-K has a dark picture, though, a good one.

My tv has a dark picture. Everything else seems to be fine. To view the set, I must position myself, just right, in a relatively dark room. The picture is still a straqin to view under these conditions. I've called the repairman, he states " well, it's gonna' be $189 for the service call, I'll give it a good cleanin', that'll add about $100 to the bill, after that we'll see how she looks. Ifin' she's still dark we'll try a few other things. So, it'll be $289 to start, that might just getter' done. But don't worry, Mister, I'll stay at it 'til she works or I gotta' go eat supper!". WHHAAAT? Well, could you please give me some advice. All else works well. Thanks in Advance! Jim

You didn't mention if this problem suddenly happened or has been getting dimmer over time. If it's the latter, it could be a heavy buildup of dust/soot/smoke (depending if there are smokers in the house or a wood stove, etc) or the picture tubes going bad. If the set is over 9 years old, I'd replace it with a HDTV set and not look back. If the problem occurred suddendly, then a resistor or some other component may have gone out and it again would not likely be a cheap or easy repair.

Pioneer 52" projection TV, SD-533HDS,

It is likely that the CRT's (picture tubes or bulbs) are weak. It is a major job to change and all three should be changed to make the picture like new. However, it is not costwise to repair this old of a TV even if you can get the tubes. I estimate the cost of each tube is at least $200 each. I would call Pioneer and give them your model number and see if they are available. Only a trained technician should change the tubes because it requires a lot of time and setting up of the tubes and other things.

Pioneer Elite Pro 620 HD TV on several occasions the screen has gone black but sound continues and the power green libht remains on. After shutting down for 10-15 minutes picture comes back.

Pioneer Elite Pro rear projection 620HD - Picture is still there but brightness and "white" have faded over years allowing for mediocre viewing when room is dark only. During the daylight picture is visible if viewed straight on and within 15 feet from set. Any suggestions?

My Pioneer 55 inch screen tv SD-P5553 has a solid black horizonta

This sounds like a picture mode issue. You maybe in a ZOOM mode. Try adjusting your set to FULL mode. If you are using a Sat receiver or cable box, some of these may have picture viewing mode as well, wich may need to be set in FULL or NORMAL viewing mode.

Good Luck!

Pioneer SD-532HD5 - Picture Bowed on sides only on 1080I

The problem you are describing is known as a pincushoin problem. I'm a bit surprized that you only see it on the 1080i signal though. I've inquired at my Pioneer contact about this and will update this soon.

Stay tuned...

Pioneer sd-p5071-k intermintently turns off, when on its works beautifully

You may need the power supply board resoldered as I had the same problem. The guy listed below can do it for you as I shipped mine from Illinois to him in California... Piece of cake getting the board out of the back and it's not too fraigile... Just pack in bubble wrap and it will be fine. My TV is now working great.


Good luck.

Pictue is dark as hell

use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.

Off Screen Picture

There is a width problem. There could be a control inside to control this but the TV should not change so drastically. There is most likely a problem in the width circuit.. This is a high voltage circuit, and is very dangerous to tinker or experiment around inside of. Your best bet would be to call an Authorized Pioneer repair shop and have them have a look at the set. Good Luck
