Re: PDP 5030

This may help you Greger, I found this on another site and I assume your model is simular to the 503 HDE... Good Luck - Rob...

I had exactly the same problem with my 503HDE. Screen would randomly shutdown and display E01.

In my case I believe that the cable was not at fault. The power supply in the media box looks like the most likely culprit.

I dismantled the media box and removed the LARGE power supply board and checked for dry solder joints. Sure enough, where the heatsink was soldered onto the board the joints were in a bad way. I reckon this is a symptom of the fact that the media boxes for V3 Pio's get very hot - all that expanding and contracting is likely to create dry solder joints. Taking the box apart shouldn't be a problem for anyone with a reasonable level of IT type skills!

I resoldered the joints and (touch wood) I've not had a problem for over 2 months. Whilst I can't guarantee that this is the definitive fix for this problem it seems to have worked for me. I'd be interested to hear if anyone else finds this cures the E01 problem.

Not being a hardware engineer, my only doubt is why the heatsink is connected electrically to the circuit board. Would this be for earthing purposes or perhaps to do with temperature sensing? Not sure about that - rolleyes.gif

Hope this helps someone - six grand is a lot of dosh to write off!! __________________

I turn on the unit the green light on the monitor lights for 2 seconds then blinks red 4 or 5 times, pause, blinks red 4 or 5 times, pause,?. Monitor remains black.

This sounds like a time out mode for no signal. there is a factory reset to factory sets. there is a way to do this in your manual. usually it requires a signal into the Antenna input.

Pioneer PDP 5030 power supply problem

Ok here's how I manage solve the problem... Having the back removed opens the contacts on the interlock switch so I guess if it powers up in this state it senses the high voltages are exposed and for safety shuts down... After this the unit will not power up and the power led flashes red continuously as described before…
After some thought it occurred to me that there may not be a problem at all, just be a simple reset function for this condition… I managed to find an easy solution to this… Just call up the hidden engineer’s service menu – On 3rd generation Pioneer Plasmas it’s as follows > Power down the screen > Hold down the “Input” and “Vol +” buttons on the front > Power the screen up and the Service menu comes up on the screen > You don't need to change anything just simply power off and from then the screen should operate as normal…It did for me so I’m well happy now!!
I hope this information will help someone else one day – Good Luck!!…Rob UK…
