Question about Pioneer SD-532HD5 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Off Screen Picture

Hi received my sd-532hd5 from my brother-in-law. When I set it up in my house it seemed to be working fine. However I noticed that the picture seems to be chopped off at either side. For instance... The channel logo is only half there and looks like if I only had another inch of screen I could see everything.

Re: Off Screen Picture

There is a width problem. There could be a control inside to control this but the TV should not change so drastically. There is most likely a problem in the width circuit.. This is a high voltage circuit, and is very dangerous to tinker or experiment around inside of. Your best bet would be to call an Authorized Pioneer repair shop and have them have a look at the set. Good Luck

Picture is to big it won't fit the screen.

You have a pincushion correction problem.This is not an easy problem to troubleshoot.Even as a technician I find that schematics are usally needed to correct these problems.I reccomend that this unit need to be checked by a qualified service technician.I can give you a ballpark figure of cost of repair of any where between $185.00-$325.00.Good luck.

My Pioneer 55 inch screen tv SD-P5553 has a solid black horizonta

This sounds like a picture mode issue. You maybe in a ZOOM mode. Try adjusting your set to FULL mode. If you are using a Sat receiver or cable box, some of these may have picture viewing mode as well, wich may need to be set in FULL or NORMAL viewing mode.

Good Luck!

Pioneer SD-532HD5 - Picture Bowed on sides only on 1080I

The problem you are describing is known as a pincushoin problem. I'm a bit surprized that you only see it on the 1080i signal though. I've inquired at my Pioneer contact about this and will update this soon.

Stay tuned...

This fault happens with just about any tube type projection set. The convergence IC's simply need to be replaced. They are two black, 2"X3", stand up ICs that will start with the letters STK on the surface of them and are mounted up against a large metal heatsink. If you have the soldering skills this should not be so hard for you to do, but please if you do not have the skills or experience to replace these IC's call in a pro to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
