Pioneer PDP-5016HD was working fine. I unplugged all cables to move to a new house. It was exposed to near-freezing temperature for about an hour. I set it up at the new house and it will not turn on. Note: Remote control still at old house so needed to use the side power button. I have confirmed that there is power to the socket we are plugging into (I tried a few to be sure) and that the power cord is correctly attached to the TV. Any ideas? Could it be that the remote is required to turn it on first time?

Re: TV Will not turn on
Was the tv still "freezing cold" when it was plugged in? If so, then there was probably some condensation that formed on the circuit board inside the tv that could have shorted out an IC or another component. I saw this happen on a mitsubishi big screen - under the same exact circumstances. I removed the board, cleaned it with Isopropyl alcohol and a toothbrush, and dried it out with compressed air- after thet, it worked fine.

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.
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.
Very possible,but yet,this might be the manufacturer defect power supply which they will fix it for you free;but before we jump to this conclusion,you need to test it first:
-Unplug the power cords.
-Unplug the media video cable from the box to the tv.
-Check all the pins on the video cable are in place as well as the connectors both behind the TV and the media box.
-Reconnect the media box and TV with the video cable(DVI+VGA in one) and have at least a video component hook up to it(ex. dvd player/VCR or comcast box) be sure this video player is turn on and running,at the same time,be sure it is under the right video input.
