Question about Pioneer PureVision PDP-424MV 42 in. Plasma HDTV

Open Question

Pioneer PDP505HDG & PDP435HDG

My Plasma screen light blinks red as if to say "no power to the media box". The Media Box light is either fully functioning (always Green when "on" and always Red when "off) OR it blinks Green. I've tried turning power on and off and nothing seesm to work. The cables are connected well. Once in a while, after turning the power off from the screen and turning everything back on, for 2-3 seconds it seems like the Plasma comes to life only to switch back to blinking standby mode. Please help!

SOURCE: Pioneer PDP-R06U media receiver

On this model, this is a "fault code". The unit has attempted to power up and the processor has determined a fault with it's "self check" diagnostic test it runs each time the unit is turned on. A technician will have to test the unit to determine the nature of the fault.

You can use a PDPR06U if you can find one for sale its 2 generations later than your's. Look on Ebay. I might have one too but I got to look.

SOURCE: pioneer media receiver won t turn on

If the light on the media reciever doesn't come on then the power supply in that needs to be replaced by a service tech. If you disconnect the 2 cables from the media reciever and the panel and then try to turn on the panel it should light with red and green squares for a few seconds but will turn off as it needs the media reciever to be connected.

I have the exact same problem with the same model tv. It just stopped working, tv has no lights or evidence of power and the red standby light on the media center flashes without any other function potential.
I checked the internal tv fuse and it was measuring continuity.
If you figure anything out I'd be interested to hear it.

Un plug the power to the Plasma Screen and also to the Media Receiver for ten minutes. Disconnect the off the air antennas both A and B. After ten minutes plug in the plasma screen then the media receiver and turn on wi the remote control. You should now be back in operation. I was.
Also It may not be a bad digital tuner. The TV Guide feature is active even when the zip code is set to all 0s so if you have an over the air antenna attached the TV will look for the TV Guide info and if it can not find it because of a weak signal or the chanel it is tuned to does not carry that information the TV thinks that tuner does not work which triggers the 12 flashes. Also on power up the gray box with the waring message "Plasma Display Starting Up, Please Wait" appears and the screen is blank.

Could also be the cable, set are now designed if no signal to shutdown, so first check media box by calling cable company and or replace and try another just to make sure.
