I have the exact same issue. It's most likely a problem caused by overheating the mainboard. My problem only differs in that i received it in this condition.

I have a 64 inch hdtv pioneer projection monitor sd-643hd5 and it won't fit into my basement. What can I do? Thank You In Advance, Bruce Morash

Ha Ha, I had the exact problem. I think mine is the same model of TV as well, I have a 64" Pioneer made in 2003. So my TV would hit the slanted ceiling above my stairs as I tried to move it down. I first took off the wheels of the TV and this helped but it was not quite enough. So since the bottom of the TV is flat with exception of the side boards and the front trim. I removed the front trim temporarily and cut off the side boards with a circular saw till even with the flat bottom. This gave me 2.5" more clearance which was enough to fit the TV downstairs. Hint if you scribe the cut line with a utility knife it will reduce chipping.

The picture sits about 2 inches to the left of the screen. Anything that is positioned on the left hand side gets cut off. Any suggestions for adjusting the picture horizontally?

You should post more specifics for what you are using this TV for when this happens.

Have you tried different inputs/are they all doing the same thing?
Also, if you are using this TV for a computer monitor via S-Vid or any type of converters, you could have an issue from the signal coming through and not the TV itself.

Tv cuts right off when i turn it on

projection TV`s have integrated protection circuits
built into the circuit design, these circuits turn the
power off automatically when a fault has bin detected this
is in order to prevent a more costly repair, these circuits monitor
power supply , vertical and horizontal deflection
over voltage, or x ray, and also faults with convergence circuits.
Diagnosing these faults require test equipment and a good knowledge of
electronic repair techniques, and also a repair manual.

My surround sound speakers where too close to my tv and now my colours are messed up what do i do to fix the problem?

Seems the magnetic field from the speakers has caused the color purity in the televisions screen to become discolored, You might try unplugng the set and moving the speaker futher away from the television, Wait at least 20min before cutting it back on, There is a degaussing coil surrounding your picture whis supposed degauss the set everytime you cut it on. Much like you seen on older computer monitors when you press the degauss botton the screen would suddenly go to a rainbow of colors and then return to normal. Depending on how long the speaker has been there you might have to call your servicer and have them come out and manually degause the set for you.

I have a panassonic 50" plazma tv, when using it as a pc monitor the screen goes blank how do i stop this, many thanks, patsy

Does the screen go blank after the computer has been sitting unused for a while or is it immediately blank and does not show a picture. If it goes blank after a while, look in your power settings under control panel on your computer and set the monitor cut off to NEVER, also check your screen saver settings. If it does not show a picture at all check the user manual of your TV to see the supported computer resolutions and then check under display settings on your computer to see if the resolution that you are using is compatible. Hope this helps.
