    My husband is a jack of all trades and actually used the contraption that indicates if power is goning through there was a power source, but just not turning on. So if you could help me with your last solution in replacing the fuse i'd like to go with that. where is it located?

  • dianeelk Mar 05, 2009

    can this be fixed or replaces by ourselves or do we still need to haul it to the repair shop?

  • dianeelk Mar 06, 2009

The projection bulb  is gone.  When the red indicator light flashes, it is always the bulb. if it does not flash then the circuit board needs replacement its a costly issue to replace the board. replace the bulb which is located internally on the ballast board side first and check out.to know if the bulb is faulty check out the filament in the bulb it will be burned out or broken in between. the model is quite different but will give you fair idea on replacing bulb check out the link below by clicking it.

The problem canb be a blown capacitor on the power board, the TV must be inspected internally and tested toroughly to find out the cause of the problem.

There can be many possibilities for this problem.please mention any more detail.as from this status it indicates that the circuit got short in between and so there is no power in the tv or its not turning on.if familiar with the technical knowlege of using multimeters and soldering irons and continuity you can check out the tv main board and power supply area but if not familiar its risky to check just get it checked at professional repair shop as its woth getting it fixed only after getting the estimated cost from the service center .

Ok, if you have preformed a hard reset by unplugging and it still isn't powering up, its usually a blown bulb that has tripped the protect mode. you will have to replace the damaged bulb before it will power up.

    if you are getting a blinking light on the control panel, this is usually a pcb main issue. this will require service by a tech. if you are experienced electrician, you can disassemble and preform a break point test on this board to locate the issue. its probably a IC issue.

43FDX15B No picture, Power light stays on


Just a thought, but check all of the pico fuses for a blown fuse. The pico fuses look like a small yellow resistor. Some Hitachi's are famous for having a blown hi-volt ceramic capacitor and a blown pico fuse.
I think the red led on is a short protect indicator, but I could be mistaken.

I have A Pioneer SDT50W1 rear projection TV which is about 11 years old. It is in A1 condition but recently I have had a problem when turning on the set. When I press the on off switch on the front of the...


The most likey cause of this is poor solder connections either in the power suply area or the convergence circuit area. If you can solder and are comfortable working inside the set where there are potetially dangerous high voltages (even when unplugged), you maight be able to resolve this yourself. Try resoldering any connections on the boards that appear grainy or have rings. Update this with your results.

Thanks,

Pioneer SDT50W1 rear projection TV clicks off when switched on.


Hey dudes...even i hav had the same problem that too with the same model specified here..Its a problem actually concerned with the power circuit boards of the tv. Its best to get it checked by an authorized technician. For me I had to replace a transistor on one of the boards. But after that my tv came up with a new problem....the colours appear like rainbows! Could nyone xplain y dis is happening?

No picture, no sound, power light steady green


First: Check the power outlet. Check it with a good lamp so you know you are getting power to the set.
Secondly: Check the power cord. Wiggle it around the molded ends to make sure it is not open inside the molded portion of the plugs.

Thirdly: If you know for sure the set is getting power and still no indication at all (you should be getting some little light on the front panel; standby indication) then there may be a fuse on the back panel or just inside the back cover (you will have to remove it; after unplugging the power cord) that needs replaced.

Fourthly: After all these checks if you are getting nothing, you may have some failure inside that is very serious. Normally we do not recommend serious repairs to a set over 4 years of age. This is because the set is likely to develop some other problem soon after the repair is made; further, the repairs are getting more expensive day by day while the price of new sets is coming down dramatically. Lastly, the new sets have better picture, longer lasting circuits and better features.

Hope this is a good solution for you.

thanks for your questions.
