Question about Pioneer Elite PRO-950HD 42 in. Plasma Television
The picture is vertically elongated at the top only. This results in vertically large foreheads especially evident on close-ups, and also the screen seems to be cropped at the upper edge cutting off some of the content.
There may be a failure starting in the matrix drive board, or in the display itself. The area of failure can be verified with proper troubleshooting by swapping modules. These sets are mainly serviced by swapping modules, and then calibrating as required.
Considering the age of the set parts and modules may be difficult to find. Also, these sets are fairly expensive to service. Because of the age of the set reliability will be low even after service.
I would be seriously considering that it is time to start shopping for a new set when the fault becomes intolerable.
