Question about Pioneer PureVision PDP-4340HD 43 in. Plasma HDTV
I had a loud fan problem on my Media Receiver (PDP-R04U) for my Plasma TV. I opened the top of the receiver to see which fan (there are 2) was making the loud wering sound. It wouldn't go on so I put everything back together (didn't touch anything) and now it doesn't work at all. I took it to the Pioneer local repair place and he said that I tripped a switch and he couldn't reset it unless I took in the large heavy 43' screen. It worked fine until I opened the set, Is there any way I can reset this switch myself? Thanks, JOE
Took cover off my pioneer MR it's a pro-r05u and will not turn on - any one know the rest procedure for this model. the lights stay on - no blinking.

I had the same problem and figured it out using the service manual and some hints all over the web. Tools you will need: PC with serial port, serial cable (straight-through VERY important; one end must be D-sub 9-pin for MR), VT100 terminal emulator (I used HyperTerminal in Windows), AXD1478 remote for TV. Plug in MR (assuming plasma is connected also) to power outlet. Connect serial cable to MR and PC. Start HT in Windows. Give it any name and icon. Setup to connect using serial port (COM1 for me). Setup port settings to Baud:38400, Bits:8, Parity:None, Stop:1, Flow control:None. Disconnect and go to Properties -> Settings -> Emulation: VT100. OK to exit Properties. Leave HT window open. Take Pioneer remote and point at lower right corner of plasma (SR IR sensor). Press the Display button. Wait 3 - 4 seconds. Press left arrow, up arrow, left arrow, and right arrow in sequence each for one second. Then press the power button. Panel should turn on. Press Muting button until you get to the Initialize mode. Press up arrow until you get to UART Select setting. Press left arrow until you get to 38400-232C. Press Muting button until you get back to the Information mode. Go back to the PC and click connect on the terminal emulator. Hit Enter on your keyboard and see if you get an ERR message. If so, you are communicating. Then enter TSN (in caps) and press enter. You should get a return of TSN. Then enter CTM (in caps). You should get a return of CTM. Now look at your MR's LEDs. They should be back to normal. Press HOME MENU on the Pioneer remote and the plasma will turn off. Enjoy! (^_^)

You need the pioneer media cables hooked up to the media receiver to the plasma unit itself. each end has 2 different plugs. one has 2 thumb screws and the other is a squeezable end that clicks into place. They MUST be on before you plug in any power what so ever!!!! And yes, other information is being passed through.
