Question about Pioneer PRO-520HD 53" Rear Projection Television
We bought it new 7 years ago. Very inconsistantly goes "pop" and turns off. Green light in front turns red. The only way we get it back on is if we unplug the power cord from the electrical recepatacle waiting for a random period of minutes then plug it back in and it sometimes turns on but not always. Right now we can't turn it on at all.
We have the Verizon Expert Care Warranty. They have sent out 6 TV Technicians and none of them have found the problem. Now they want to take the TV to their "shop" so they can observe it. Verizon Expert Care has refused to send out a "qualified and certified Pioneer" Technician. Verizon is awlful to deal with! I have paid $75.00 per the warranty to get the TV fixed or they have to replace it. Plus the $9.95 per month to have the warranty. Not to mention hours on the phone and at home waiting for the Technicians to show up. I love the TV and prefer to have it fixed. Verizon has refused to send any more technicians out and are insisting I allow them to take the TV to their "shop". Obviously it is a power problem somewhere and there must be someone out there that can tell me what the problem is.
Please help me!
These intermittent failures are hard to find. The "pop" noise you're earing might be cause by a coolant moisture near the high voltage connection, sometimes the coolant might leak onto the CRT causing the high voltage to arc creating a conductive pattern for the high voltage to discharge and that will also cause the TV to shutdown.
Let me know if you require further assistance.
