No power suddenly on Pioneer Plasma t.v. model PDP-5016HD

This tv is only 2 years old and tonight, while watching, the power just turned off and we can not get the power back on.  We have tried the manufacturer's troubleshooting ideas and to no avail nothing is working.  Any suggestions?

My AKAI PDP5016H 50" plasma TV turned off suddenly and wouldn't come back on. When it happened we heard a "Fizz" or "Pop" sound. I took it apart looking for a bad capacitor or obviously fried component. When powered on, not even the standby light would come on. When I couldn't find anything wrong I called my electrician neighbor who looked at it with the power connected and started looking at the fuses and started jiggling cables.

When he jiggled one of the cables, the TV came on! It was a bad cable connector on a power supply board. Look at the photos to see the problem:

The circled area is the problem board and on the second photo the arrow points to the power connector that was bad.

Disconnect the bad cable and find a connector that is identical (try RadioShack) and replace it.

Now I hate to tell you that the solution was to open up the back of my TV, connect the power, turn on the power switch, and start jiggling cables - But it was! You may get yourself electrocuted or worse by doing this, so BE CAREFUL!

Here's a clue: on the bad connector on my TV the connector itself had become discolored brown as if it had been cooked or something. Once the my electrician buddy jiggled that cable the LEDs on the main power board came on and the TV made it's characteristic "coming on" noise. In your instance it may be a fried cap or a lot of other things. Keep an eye out for anything that looks out of place or funky.

GOOD LUCK!

Pioneer Plasma TV-PDP-4270HD won't turn on. TV


Try this! There should be a power button on the bottom of the panel that has to be depressed for the television to power on. It is the main power supply button and without it there is no power going into the TV.

Plasma TV mod PDP-5016HD not turning on


The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

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.

Plasma Display Starting Up


Could be heat build up in the Plasma display unit. Make sure it has the correct space around it for proper ventilation. Also count the number of blinks on the power indicator it is a code for the reason the unit shut down. On the Pioneer PDP-5060HD I have I was getting 12 blinks on the indicator which indicated a tuner issue. Check your instruction book for info on the over heating problem if it continues. You may have a fan out.

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:
