Question about Pioneer SD-533HD5 53" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

There are two ways of turning this tv off. A ''Main Power'' button directly on the TV which turns it completely off or using the ''Standby'' (a mode which turns the TV off, but will leave a red light at the bottom of the screen) mode which is activated when using the TV remote's Power button or to press the Standby button on the TV. The only way to turn on the TV with the remote is to leave it on Standby mode, and that has been fine for the long time I have owned this TV. But one night I used the remote to turn it off (putting it on standby mode) and quickly remembered something I wanted to record (with my DVR). When I used the remote to turn it back on it turned on normaly, but then quickly shut back down to Standby mode. I tried turning it back on using the remote, but the button was not doing anything. I tried pressing the Standby button on the TV but that didn't work either. I then pressed the Main Power button on the TV and the TV shut down normally. When I pressed the Main Power button again it seemed as if it were working normally but then it shut

It sounds like a microprocessor that has latched up. Try pulling the AC plug and letting it rest for an hour or two, the problem may cure itself. The end of your message was truncated at ". . . working normally but then it shut . . ." Try posting the missing portion as a comment to your original.

Your set is of the crossover year where the first units had the same troublesome PS board as was in the 510 Elite of the year before, then they redesigned the PS board and had no further problems. Your model year contained both types of board.
To find out which board your set has, you have to follow the power cord and see if it leads you to a vertically mounted board, or a floor mounted board. If a floor mounted board, you may need local service help.
But if a vertically mounted board, please pay heed:
Your Pioneer 533HD series set has the classic cold solder joint problem endemic to all of this series of Elite CRT RPTV. The power supply - PS - board needs to be resoldered virtually completely. It's a time consuming, tedious job that if you get wrong, who knows what could happen when you turn it on again? So don't even think about resoldering it if you are an amateur at the soldering process.
I do this job every day then run it out in my test 610HD - same series - and then equip your board with a lifetime warranty on the resoldering work I have done. Please contact me directly, google Mr Bob and calibrations and Image Perfection. Unless you do resoldering every day as a professional assembler or are an experienced repair tech, I cannot in good conscience advise you to do this yourself. Far too much is riding on it.
However, if you are highly experienced at soldering, resolder everything but the heat sinks, the test points, and whatever has already been resoldered and is still glossy and gleaming, like fresh resoldering is. The solder used in the original assembly of that board was far too thin, which results in these cold solder joints.
And don't do it part way! Many joints that are not bad now will be soon, trust me, and if you have only resoldered just the ones that are bad now - the early ones to go out - and continue to use it, you make your board that much more susceptible to the far more dangerous ones that happen later on, which can damage boards downline from the power supply board.
I am the only repair person I know of offering a lifetime warranty. Even Pioneer does not do that. In fact I have permanently corrected many rebuilt Pioneer boards when they've gone out later. Pix are available at www.avsforum.com.
In your case chances are you have not heeded the warning signs of cold solder joints: intermittent ops, blue flashes, fluctuations in the brightness of your pic and other instabilities.
In the case where one of these units turns on then turns off again - LED in front goes green, then immediately back to red before a picture has a chance to appear - it's "going into protection". Chances are something downline has now been damaged because of the instability of the PS board, which is responsible for powering up the entire unit.
What I would recommend if it's "gone too far" and the unit will not stay on anymore, is a troubleshooting session with me on the phone, which is something I require before allowing a PS board to be sent to me for resoldering if the set's not staying on. Luckily, these sets were designed with on board diagnostics that can be read by technicians from far away.
If it goes green then stays green but no pic appears - even graphics like the Menu - then one of the cold solder joints that powers up the section that powers up your picture has opened up and is now staying open. This has always been remedied 100% by the resoldering process.
If it powers up correctly upon turnon from dead cold, DON'T PUSH IT! If it still has intemittencies, it's in a very precarious, dangerous condition. Many sets have been run past their warning signs, and by the time I get notified and can lend a hand, they are considered totalled and are abandoned. Don't let that happen to you. RUN IT FOR NO MORE THAN 40 SECONDS, and power it down again and unplug it.
DO NOT ALLOW IT UP TO NORMAL OPERATING TEMP AGAIN - EVEN ONCE - UNTIL FIXED PROPERLY.
If it turns on from dead cold and works properly even tho intermittencies have happened in the past, this is the best case scenario. It means it can be resoldered properly and you'll be home free. Or sent to me for resoldering if you are not a highly experienced repair tech or assembler, in which case you'll get my lifetime warranty on the resoldering work..

SOURCE: can't turn on

When you turn the MAIN off you are killing all power to the set---Some advice---If you Google the model number of this set with the word problem after it you should find what I have seen a lot in these sets: they develop bad solder connections on the power supply printed circuit board---usually the board is about 18 inches tall and 12 inches wide--A number of sites online offer to have you ship them the board and they will resolder it for you.
I have repaired about 12 of these with this problem in the last 2 years---The board has to be removed(there are quite a few plugs that need to be labeled and removed and lots of screws that secure the board in place.)

Maybe not a job for a do it yourself person but the soldering (if it is your problem) will take about 45 minutes(including removal and installing board back).

Like most modern sets this set uses lead free solder and it is soldered(the boards) in a wave or one step process---over time from heat and expansion some connections may crack or even break loose----I would look at the POWER SUPPLY board(follow the power cord as it goes right to it)

My 15 month Celcus LCD423D913FHD tv will not turn on. The standby light is lit and will flicker but will not power up the tv. What is the likely problem?


Fault with its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

When i turn it on it clicks and the goes right back off


New set?
If you're turning almost any TV on by the manual power switch on it, thats Standby mode.
The next step it's waiting for is the ON command from the remote control.
There are two main methods remotes use to go to ON from Standby:
Press the Power button for both on and off commands
Press any 1-10 (or 1-0) button for on, press power button for off.

The TV worked fine on Sunday evening, turned it off the normal way when went to bed. Came down to turn on in the morning and only the red light comes on indicating standby mode. I have unplugged...


Hello,

There seem to be a problem that is why the television is not coming up and stays stuck on standby mode.

First try to turn on the television using the remote of the television and ensure that the battery of the remote is properly working, you can as well try to push the channel button on the television if the remote does not work.

If it does not come up both by using the remote and pushing the channel button, then it means it is a hardware problem, and that is from inside the unit of the television. Since the standby light comes up, it simply means power is reaching the main panel of the television.

This mainly used to be caused by a faulty or bad capacitor on either the main panel or the power panel of the television.

To check and fix, follow the steps below:

Unlock a panasonic tv


Hello

If you wants your Pansonic tv to be locked out there is ony way I knew.

Put your TV in standby mode and press the Power and Action buttons at the same time, and turn the main power switch or your TVs front panel to Off. The set should reset to Factory Defaults, and reset the V-Chip. Ok

The remote control will not operate the TV when the TV is in the OFF mode (No LED lit on front bezel). To change the mode from OFF to STANDBY or ON, press the POWER button on the side of the TV. Once the POWER button is pressed, the LED will change to either red to indicate STANDBY or green to indicate ON, whichever mode the TV was in prior to being turned off with the TV POWER button.

By pressing the POWER button on the side of the TV, the mode will toggle from OFF to either STANDBY or ON. If the POWER button is pressed and then the LED on the bezel is red, the TV is in STANDBY mode and will need to be turned on using the remote control. If the POWER button is pressed and then the LED on the bezel is green, the TV is ON.

My Polytron TV is on standby mode. I used the remote but wont turned off


When you turn that TV "off" with the remote it go's into standby mode, that is the way they made it unfortunatly
To actualy make it not have any power going to it you will have to unplug it or plug it into a power strip and use the switch on the power strip.
They use the standby mode to allow the TV to turn on quickly without making you wait.

The amount of standyby power consumtion is minimal. The only way to turn it off completly is to disconnect the power from the TV. This will however increase your start up time when you want to use the TV.
