Question about Pioneer PureVision PDP-5030HD 50 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
Last week I heard a pop sound from the inside of my Pioneer PDP 5030 plasma. I took it apart, examining the power supply board I found a resister had blown. I call pioneer and ordered a new power supply board. When it arrived I proceeded to install it back in the unit. All the cables were put back into its proper location. I turned the unit on and the power supply clicked, the green light on board came on and turned back off. Now the power supply will not even turn on. The power light indicator in front of the panel will only rapidly blink red. It repeatedly blinks without stopping. If I turn the receiver off the blinking slows but once the receiver is turned back on the red light speeds its pace. I do not hear clicking on the power supply unit any more. Please help. Thank you.

Ok here's how I manage solve the problem... Having the back removed opens the contacts on the interlock switch so I guess if it powers up in this state it senses the high voltages are exposed and for safety shuts down... After this the unit will not power up and the power led flashes red continuously as described before…
After some thought it occurred to me that there may not be a problem at all, just be a simple reset function for this condition… I managed to find an easy solution to this… Just call up the hidden engineer’s service menu – On 3rd generation Pioneer Plasmas it’s as follows > Power down the screen > Hold down the “Input” and “Vol +” buttons on the front > Power the screen up and the Service menu comes up on the screen > You don't need to change anything just simply power off and from then the screen should operate as normal…It did for me so I’m well happy now!!
I hope this information will help someone else one day – Good Luck!!…Rob UK…

There are 2 problems 1)you might have tripped the interlock switch which a white switch on back.2)what happened to unit(pop)you lost a scan ic and probably damaged the y sus board.use a multi meter and check the y-sus connector plug on power supply and check to see if it is shorted.If it is you also need a y-sus board. If you need help on the interlock switch please e-mail back

Fix for Flashing red stand by light. Make sure media receiver light is on and green . My blu ray is just above the media receiver and someone pressed the receiver button thinking it was the blu ray and turned it off. Then press stand by light on the tv again and the tv should go back on.

Where is the interlock switch located?
Also, we had white glove service mount the unit to the wall, how do remove from the wall?
