Question about Pioneer SD-641HD5 64" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Pioneer SD-641HD5 staying in standby.

I've been looking at the forums to find this problem I'm having and I'm stumped.

It's state:
It was working fine for the part two years (I got it used, but theprevious owner stated it had no problems with him either) with noproblem what so ever.

About a week ago, I turned my rear projection on and it immediatelywent back to standby. I unplugged it and let it set for some time, andthen plugged it back in, it auto-turned on, and then went immediatelyto standby. Okay, something is wrong I thought. So I pulled the backcover and on the AC board (to the far right if you look at the back ofit, a LED (location D118) was lit up. No other lights I could see.Seeing other posts, I removed the power board and found numerous coldsolder spots. I corrected that problem and then reattached the boardand powered on the set, it went back to standby again immediately. Ilooked again and now I found that besides the led D118 was lit, thepower board had blown fuse FU206, I replaced the fuse and plugged itback in, it blew the fuse again. Checking the schematic, it led me tobelieve that the AMP board was the fault (specifically theSTK392-040s). A suggestion in one of the forums was to remove theSTK392s to see if it blew the fuse afterward. I did so, and I found aton of cold solder joints on AMP board also. I corrected them and thenreattached the amp board with the STK392 missing. It powered up and wasworking, minus the convergence was all jacked. I didn't bother to doanything, so I powered off the set and ordered the STK392 replacements(the exact ones, not generics). When the new ones arrived, I installedthem and then plugged it back in. it went back to the standby lightimmediately, and the LED D118 was lit up again. NO other leds are onany of the other boards. The forums mentioned to check for an led onthe other boards so I looked with the lights turned off in the room.Nothing. I'm baffled on where to go next.

Please help!

    this solution has nothing to do with troubleshooting which is what I'm asking for.

So far the process done its perfect and i want to go the last paragraph:... IT powered up and was working minus the...

i want to take it here because as you can see you tv can work without the convergence. As soon as you can get back to this step i consider it a good symptom.
Because the change of the amplifiers is good step but can finish the repair or cannot. Maybe some resistor in the area or in the supply of +- 20 v cannot let you work
I recommend to return to this loop as needed. The convergence area is an amplifier. Any short and i mean Any it would increase the current and the protection works as needed in the main power supply who doesn't tolerate any current error.

To continue with the second line about LED's:
Yes, this tv has several Leds around power sources and they lit when the areas finally are working ( but remember your set gets into shut down) but when it doesn't work, this leds are not trustful source of troubleshooting. Keep us informed about your finding.

I've got a vsx-920-k Pioneer receiver with s-11 Pioneer speakers and a s-21w Pioneer subwoofer. All of a sudden my sub stopped working and it seems like it's stuck in standby mode (blue light...

The manual is here...

Flashing Blue is not defined in the manual.

Have you tried changing the Auto Standby switch to ON?

You can prove if the sub amp will respond to a known good input by TURNING ITS VOLUME DOWN tp start and just feeding it ANY RCA output from the receiver while playing, say, FM (to keep it simple). That way you would known in which direction the problem actually lies (internal or external).

Wont turn on

I have fixed a lot of these sets. The set should have a master on/off or power and a standby light on front that is red--when you turn on a green light should appear.

If standby light is on and green comes on and goes off--you may have the classic problem these sets have.

Some explanation:

These were among the first sets made that used lead free solder and the power supply board seems to be most to have soldering problems that develop over time.

If you unplug set and remove rear cover--follow power cord to power board--It should be a large board as seen from rear to the right--

There are fuses on the board but they rarely fail. If the fuses are all good someone needs to remove that board and look for and solder most of the connections.

I have seen ones with clearly bad solder connections and some looked fine. I have found if you do or do not see bad connections tor resolder the whole board---with it out takes under a hour to do.

Let me know if you have more information or need help.

If this helped or told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Unplug the TV for maybe 10 minutes, then turn it on. Sometimes these units simply need to recycle. If that doesn't work, you've likely got serious problems.

Pioneer SD-641HD5 red convergence - not chip problem!

Replace Both of your STKs if they are STK392-110s do not go back with them use STK392-180s better ICs, The 110s fall apart and do not hold up.

Power problem (switches to standby)

its the problem of the ics on the main power supply board

Do the IC heat sinks get warm??

If they do not, check fuses F852 - 2AMP, F853 - 1.25AMP, F850 & F851 - ALL 5AMP on the power deflection pcb. THESE ARE NOT GLASS FUSES. They are usually about the size of a 1 watt resistor and either green or orange in color. They are soldered in. The nomenclature is printed on the component side of the board. They are all about centered on the opposite edge of the PCB as the high voltage transformer.

If you have cleaned up the mess you describe you most likely have one of these fuses blown.

if dont have any technical knowledge its advisable to call a technician as it is worth getting it fixed.
