Most of the intermittent problems in these were caused by instermittent solder connections. Now that it won't come on at all, you may be experiencing a different problem. These were famous for having the regulator for the convergence controller go bad. When they failed they would knock out the 4 amp fuse on the secondary power supply line. The best part is that they, too, would be intermittent, which is to say that you would replace that fuse and the set would be fine. Sometimes for 2 days, other time for two weeks, then the fuse would open again and you ended up replacing the regulators.

With either problem it is not something that I recommend you attempt unless you are an experienced repair tech. These are very easy to create more problems than what you started out with. The up side of all of this is that you have a very high quality RPTV that had a very nice picture for its time. Depending on the fairness of your local TV tech it would be worth repairing: it would be worth at least his diagnostic fee to confirm the problems.

Good luck!

Make sure to check all the fuses with an ohm meter. Pioneer also have terrible solder joints. I used to "sweep solder" the whole convergence board. Down on the power supply you should find the pico fuses. They are pretty small in compairison to the glass fuses.

51mp392h/17 Magnavox video goes out after a few but sound works

More than likely the SSB board. Part# 313912725871 cost around $200.00 or more. Plugs into the signal board on it's edge like memory in a computer. The only thing is these sets are junk, and this is just the beginning of your problems. Don't waste your money on fixing this set. They don't hold up to repair. Trust me on this, been fixing sets for over 20 full time job. Buy a Pioneer,Panasonic,Hitachi,Sony or a high end Sharp WITH an extended warranty. Nothing lasts anymore, but with the above sets, you have a chance of it lasting a few years and getting service if needed. Otherwise the other sets are parts available. NEVER buy China made anything!!!! You might get 6 months, then it's ready for the junk pile. No service,No parts, No nothing.

Pioneer SD-p5073-K Shuts off

it is the power supply board an know problem with pioneer. If you have any soldering experience you can remove the powersupply board and resolder the tracks and as many parts as you can. I had the same problem and not the power supply works great. You will soon have other problems like pic and sound going intermittant where you have to hit the tv to get it back on. more solder problems on video main board. best of luck

the problem what you r facing is the problem of the convergence in your main board of the tv.
it has to be repaired.
