Question about Televison & Video

Pioneer Elite Pro - 510HD

Bob, You suggested that the loss of picture and sound - restored sometimes with a loud pop, other times by turning off and waiting - is a Power supply soldering problem.  We readers should send you the board?
How do I get to and remove the PS board and what do you charge for this "100% reliable" repair?

I have never stated "100% reliable". I have simply not ever had a failure yet to make the set work again, as long as the set is working properly when turned on before the board is removed and sent, just experiencing intermittent trouble events after warming up. Hopefully that's good enough for you, as you seem to be a little skeptical. If it does not make your set work and you need to get a new board to replace yours, I will refund half what I charge but will keep the other half, just for trying. This refund policy hasn't needed to be implemented yet, in all the dozens of boards that have been sent to me so far from all over the continent - including Canada - but that's my promise to you.

One thing is very important, and I can't stress it enough: STOP USING YOUR SET NOW. Things could get much worse if you do. That means NOW, even if you are watching it now. A deadly spike caused by the bad solder joints currently on that power supply board could be getting ready to be produced by a connection that is getting ready to separate as we speak, and that spike could take out one of the boards downline. One guy who called me had kept using his set for months with these intermittents happening, and eventually both the converence and the deflection boards went out, both in an instant. The set would not turn on again. With 3 boards to now have to deal with, he decided not to get his set repaired at all, due to the now tripled expense. It tears my heart out when one of these fine machines goes down for the count because of misuse - continued use when it's obviously hurt - and is then DNR'd by its owner. That all could have been avoided by taking action promptly rather than continuing to tempt fate, on his part.

Send me an email requesting it, and I'll send you back an emailout on how to remove it, what it costs, how to wrap it and send it, where to send it, etc. I can't divulge certain aspects of all this on the net here, must keep some of it close to the vest. Will be glad to tell you personally, by email or on the phone.

I will tell you this much - I charge $275 for the resoldering op, you pay the shipping both ways. That's less than it costs to get a board from Pio and have a local Pio warranty station install it.

Keeping the same board in your set rather than replacing it is the way to go, IMHO. That way the voltages it was set up with originally, stay the same. If you get a replacement board, those voltages can be very different, affecting the precision of settings downline. Voltage regulation only has to fall within certain parameters, so different PS boards will produce different sets of voltages. The best way to retain your precision in downline sets of settings is to keep your original board in the set, the one your set was originally set up at the factory with.

To find the PS board, follow the power cord from the wall. It will lead you right to it. Use the big bubble-wrap to send it rather than the small stuff, and box it in an oversized box for the journey.

I keep the return date to you within 2 weeks of arrival here, and sooner if at all possible. But this time of year things get really busy for me, as everyone wants their display up and running for the holidays. I will do my best to get it back to you promptly.

EchoKaos may not have resoldered his PS board, which most units in that line need. This will most likely solve the problem. A virtually complete resolder is needed on that board, not just the obviously problem areas.

If not -

If the hor lines are upward and curved slightly and a couple of inches apart, then the blue Screen trimpot on the focus block is most likely turned up too high. When turned down the lines will disappear.

This mucks with your grayscale, but then it's trashed anyway by now, and after reducing it, you will have to do a new grayscale on your set, or have one done by ISF. Or a tech who knows how to set the Screen controls, since ISF does not teach that.

The intermittencies you mention are common on this
series. The PS - power supply - board needs a
virtually complete resolder op, as the solder used in
that run of units was weak and thin. It will not get
better on its own, any more than needed dental work
will.

Send it to me and I will resolder it and send it back.
I have done so on a number of PS boards in this series,
and am running at 100% success on saving the
510/610/710 series of Pioneer Elites when all they need
is the resoldering op. There is a procedure to follow,
so contact me directly.

since your tv is 6yrs old it could be that the video circuit has cold solder that needs to be resolder if that does not work then a focus on the video circuit by replacing the component there, it could be an ic or transistors or diode.if you are not a tech get one to look at your set.good luck.for further help email me at nicodhem@yahoo.com
