Question about Pioneer DV-285-S DVD Player

Blinking Timer Light

Same as other guy, blinking timer light and unit won't power on.
Does not respond to anything except the power button(on the unit and the remote) after about 10-15 seconds when initially plugged in. Hear a clicking sound and there seems to be a discharge of electricity and the timer light goes out. After about 3 seconds and the light comes back on. Waiting another 10-15 seconds and you can repeat.

Replaced the fuse but that wasn't the issue. Also let it sit unplugged and plugged for respective 24 hour periods but no change.

Panasonic air con - when you turn the air con on it runs for about 3 mins and then the timer light flashes. Air con will not work.


• Once abnormality has occurred during operation, the unit
will stop its operation, and Timer LEDs blink.
• Although Timer LED goes off when power supply is turned
off, if the unit is operated under a breakdown condition, the
LED will light up again.
• In operation after breakdown repair, the Timer LED will no
more blink. The last error code (abnormality) will be stored in
IC memory.
• To make a diagnosis:
1. Timer LED start to blink and the unit automatically
stops the operation.
2. Press the CHECK button on the remote controller
continuously for 5 seconds.
3. "- -" will be displayed on the remote controller display.
Note: Display only for "- -". (No transmitting signal, no
receiving sound and no Power LED blinking.)
4. Press the "TIMER" or button on the remote
controller. The code "H00" (no abnormality) will be
displayed and signal will be transmitted to the main
unit.
5. Every press of the button (up or down) will increase
abnormality numbers and transmit abnormality code
signal to the main unit.
6. When the latest abnormality code on the main unit
and code transmitted from the remote controller are
matched, power LED will light up for 30 seconds and
a beep sound (continuously for 4 seconds) will be
heard. If no codes are matched, power LED will light
up for 0.5 seconds and no sound will be heard.
7. The breakdown diagnosis mode will be canceled by
pressing the CHECK button continuously for 5 sec-
onds or without any operation the remote control for
30 seconds.
8. The LED will be off if the unit is turned off or the
RESET button on the main unit is pressed.

When you have the error code, we can work out what to do next.

Timer light blinking and tv won't turn on


Not much info to go off of, and the video is a bit blurry. Try unplugging the tv for a minute or two, make sure to leave it unplugged to allow power to dissipate. Then try again. Otherwise I would suspect power supply problem.

Timer light is blinking and won't come on


Thats a very common problem with that model which is the V26 chassis. You can get the V26 Chassis DLP DM ? Power repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com which has the replacement caps known to fail on the DM and Power boards. The kit also has the CD with step by step repair instructions.

Blinking Green Timer Light


I suspect the lamp area is VERY dirty as is the cabinet's filters and fans. This causes great stress on your tv and lamp. Take the time to clean all of them fully. Is the unit in a dirty area? or in a high temp area? DLP's dont like high temp or contaminated areas as they are NOT air sealed units.

Mitsubishi WS73713 - Now working - Timer light flashing.


My Mitsubishi WS-73713 had the same blinking green timer light problem and would not turn on. I tried the reset button and unplugging power to no avail. I found that by simultaneously holding down the remote control "power" button and "volume" button for about 30 seconds the blinking light would go out and a solid green light would come on. Even though the solid green light came on the unit would still not power up. After doing this several times however the unit did finally power up in a normal mode and appears to be working again. It's worth trying before calling in for an expensive repair. PS - From here on out I'm sticking with SONY or Toshiba sets which have given be great service.
