Question about Pioneer PRO-200 60" Rear Projection Television
Your symptoms sounds like a damaged convergence IC.
This is a common failure for this particular television. You should have a red blinking power light on the front of your set that will blink 9 times and this is your solution to your problem.
There are two and large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. They will have a part number stamped on them that will start with an STKXXX-XXX, like STK392-110, and they are located on the signal board (on the left as you look into the back of the set).
Most of the time I have performed this repair for around $250.00-$300, but it may vary according to where you live. So repair is most likely the best way to go.
I would also advise that the convergence IC’s be OEM or better, just because they are cheap does not mean that they are a good deal. I have seen the cheap IC’s fail after a short time, even though they look exactly like the OEM IC’s. I think that the bottom line is that you will get what you pay for when it comes to the parts.
As for the labor, I would make sure that the service center that performs the work has some sort of guarantee on the work that they perform. The better service centers will always have some sort of guarantee, at least 30-90 days.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
