Question about Pioneer PureVision PDP-5030HD 50 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
My TV will just go off - when you try to turn it back on, you get an EOI code.
I checked the manual and all connections are correct - please advise
I found this possible solution in another forum - I really hope this will help you out twister50... As an electronics design engineer this sounds as if it could well be the cause of your problem... Good Luck!! - Rob UK
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 -
Hope this helps someone - six grand is a lot of dosh to write off!! __________________
