Question about Pioneer DVR-520H DVD Recorder
When turned on, it flash "Power ON" then immediately "LSI NG".
Posted by Anonymous on
I have been told LSI NG on my Pioneer 510 HDD Recorder refers to failure of the large Scale Intigraton Chip (LSI for short) so it is saying the L.S.I. Chip is No Good.
Some have commented elsewhere this might be a failure of a hard disk leading to this and to try and change the HDD out and see if the failure continues as this may cause the LSI statement...
My service tech just told me this is plausible but unlikely and the Pioneer 310/510 DVD Recorders are getting old and the LSI chips are starting to fail on them.
I regret to say the recorder is probably failing on you due to it's age. My tech commented to me these are supposedly good for five years and their current age is almost 11 years.
Remainig use life depends on the unit and how much it has been used. We got into this with a failed DVD burner on our unit which you use to burn from the HDD Hard Disk in the 510 (the 310 is a DVD Recorder only).
Just a note on servicing these units. If you remove the DVDR or HDD you then need a service remote and service DVD on these units to reset the code in the units or they will not work.
If you open them up and start disconnecting the drives and don't have these tools you will not be able to reset them and the units will not work even if there is no problem (so you have been forewarned about this).
I'd check on line for a refub unit as there are very few qualified techs to deal with these and many lack the tools for these old units. People like them because they have many great features but are no longer made. I was told all of the 510's were made within six months in I believe 2003 or 2004...
