Question about Pioneer PureVision PDP-4340HD 43 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

TV wont turn on power button flashes and record timer comes on.

When I try and turn on my tv the power button flashes red and the record timer red light comes on. I have had the TV for about a year and a half. I called the place where I bought it form and they said it is off warranty and they want $700 to fix it. When we bought this TV it was around $5000. We were told this was one of the best tv's on the market and it would last for 20 years. NOT. For $5000 I think my TV should last for longer than a year and a half. I am really upset. We called pionner direct and they said this is rare and allthough they agree this sholdn't have happened in such a short period of time there is nothing they can do for us. Help. Has anyone had this problem or knows how to fix it.

Re: TV wont turn on power button flashes and record timer...

For ANYONE to claim a TV will last for 20 years is outrageous! I don't care if it cost 10,000 dollars that is the wrong thing to say. Plasma TV's do generate a lot of heat and heat is the enemy of electronics. I would shop around for a repair because to quote $700 without looking at it is also outrageous. Then again it is well below the cost of a replacement Pioneer plasma.

Tv wont come on

There might be a problem with your television. When the LEDs do something they never though in normal operation it usually is a status indicator.

Try contacting Sony on the matter as for they probably know what the LEDs indicate. You can find contact information on the Sony websites.
