Pioneer Plasma TV powered off and won't power back up

TV made popping sound, like electrical pop, and then powered off. Will not power back on. It is plugged into a surge protector which is working properly.

    I have a PDP-5030HD Pioneer Plasma. We turned it on, heard a large popping sound--much like an electrical popping sound--and the power light went to red. The screen never produced a picture and has not powered up after several tries.

    My problem is similar, I have a Pro-1150 HD. After a couple of months the TV started switching off interrmittently. Did a hard reset by unplugging the TV but that did not help. Dropped of at the Pioneer service center for 3 weeks where they replaced the power module but the problem has again started occurring and the TV is back at the service center. It switches channel also sometime. I am hoping they can fix it this time. I am disappointed that a beautiful set has so many problems. Has anyone had any luck with Pioneer replacing the set. At what point will they do this and how does one go about insisting on a replacement. Thx.

    Same thing just happened to me this evening: turned on system with master remote and hear a huge pop, not sure if from speakers or tv.  Now, my Pioneer PDP50HD won't turn on or reset.  All I get are about 6 or 7 fast blinking red lights on the tv....please advise thanks

I was watching my Hitachi 42hdm12 and heard a pop and now the picture won't show up or sound or anything?


A pop is usually a power surge and you blew a board. If you take the tv apart, if this is it, it will be evident by the burn marks. You could have burned out the internal power supply as well.

Samsung plasma tv made a really loud pop and the screen and sound do not work but the red power light won't come off unless the tv is unplugged what happened?


The main power supply regulator board has the fault. Check if any electrolytic capcitor/s has bursted out. Replace them if any. If this do not help you. repalce the board as card basis.
Replacing it as card basis is fine, rather than making 'surgery' to it.

We have a pioneer plasma tv and there was a loud popping sound and then the screen went blank


I had the same thing happen a few weeks ago to my zenith 50" plasma tv. I tried to turn it back on with the remote and the power button on the set but the only thing that happened was the led would flash green 3 times and then go back to red. I took it to a repair shop and they called yesterday to tell me it was going to cost $700 to fix it by replacing the power supply. No guarantees either that it will last any longer than the 3 years I've had it for either. But it's still cheaper than replacing it with a new "bigger" tv which is what I will eventually do anyway. I've heard of people looking on ebay for repair parts and doing the repairs themselves but there is no warranty on human error...

I heard a pop from my tv and then the tv didn't work


Anything is repairable as long as the screen isn't damaged.
The sound you heard is most likely was a capacitor that just went dead.
Solder in a new capacitor should fix the problem. It would most likely be on the power supply board somewhere.

You'll need the Service Manual for parts list, diagrams, and schematics. Here's one place for that:

Any other questions just ask.

Problem with Pioneer Plasma


Pioneer has a power supply recall on some models. Do a search and you will find a number at Pioneer and they will replace your power supply for free. The loud popping noise and then nothing is a common problem with these. Hope this helps!

PDP-4330HD


This exact same problem happened to me 2 weeks ago on my Pioneer PDP-4330HD, and it did indeed turn out to be the power supply. The good news is, you can get it fixed for free, because Pioneer actually recalled the power supply in this plasma and others a couple of years ago.

Here is a link to the announcement on their website concerning the recall. They say that they will do a free in home replacement of your power supply, but when I called the local pioneer repair place, I was told I would have to wait three weeks for an in-home appointment. I ended up taking it in myself, and it was fixed for free 2 days later. Now it works perfectly.

Here's the number to call Pioneer in case the link goes down:
