Question about Pioneer Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a 10 year old Pioneer plasma TV (Pioneer PDP-R05E). When the TV is turned on, it starts with a black screen, and then some reddish dots flashing on the screen, mostly on the corners. After sometime the image starts to come from the corners processing to the middle with black thin horizontal lines moving. The blackness disappears more on lighter colors. After some hours the screen displays with no problem. Sometimes it gets more time when the house is colder, the radiator sometimes helps, but I'm not sure if it is random. The back of the TV is not warm anywhere, only the top part is warm, but not too much. I'm having the problem for a year. Once, there was no image anymore, so I have not turned on the TV for about 4 months, and when I turned it on, it was like new, the screen had no problem for one month, and then the problem got worse over time again. I'm going to call for TV repair, but it will be very good if I can have an idea what could be wrong with my TV. I will be glad if anyone can help. Thanks a lot.

10 years on a plasma is pretty good. If you are losing the plasma screen, then it will not be worth the time/cost to replace. LCD TV's have come down (and the new 4K format is here) considerably, are less energy hogs and last longer than the Plasma (this can be debated on longevity but LCD technology has been around a long time and is more prevelant than plasma). Time to upgrade.
it could either be the screen (my bet) or the controller board for the screen. Either way, the cost to truck a repairman out there, diagnose, order the part and return could exceed what a new format LCD will run you.

Pioneer PDP-436PU TV blinks red 10 times


Most likely a bad power supply board= you are going to have to find a Pioneer dealer to get it fixed or even get the part--many shops including the one I work for will not touch this brand of set.

Our tv is about 10 years old. All of the sudden, the visual just shuts off- the sound is on, but the visual goes black- A few times, we've been able to reboot the whole system and it would come back up,...


On a 10 year old Pioneer, this may be an expensive repair. There were several boards that could cause the same symptoms. If it is not a power supply problem you may be chasing your tail. If the capacitors in the power supply caused this, you should be looking at $125-250 us dollars. If they say it's the main drive boards.... run away. Buy a new set. Just my best guess from experience.
Good luck, Russmann.

Is tv plasma or lcd (how old). it may be the screen or pannel has lost its efficiency. A bit like old tv's tube going. You did the correct thing by adjusting controls but this sounds like a workshop job

Pioneer plasma pdp5050hd about 5 yrs old why do green dots pop up in the screen


Your PDP voltages are not set to correct values. They somehow changed and that is the reason you are seeing these dots. Have a qualified tv tech adjust these values. Why ? Because setting incorrect voltages can damage your screen and the voltage controls are located inside the tv. The set holds potentially lethal voltages for several hours after its turned off and unplugged.

Pioneer Elite Plasma TV 2-yrs old loses color randomly.


Would need model number to search properly. On some sets a capacitor "C2601" of Y-Drive assembly contacts the audio bracket and it is damaged, can cause a abnormal picture.

PLASMA DISPLAY STARTING UP. PLEASE WAIT


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.
