Question about Pioneer PRO-710HD 64" Rear Projection Television

Top of picture cut off

I have had a Pioneer PRO-710HD for several years. One ongoing minor problem is that the top of the picture seems to be cut off... meaning I seem to be missing a few lines. Is there any way to adjust this? I have read the manual to no avail.

I believe the problem is with the television itself and not the source because I see the same problem with an xBox 360 attached directely to the TV and a digital cable box attached through a receiver. In the past I have also connected a DirectTV receiver with the same issues.

Re: Top of picture cut off

Overscan is a staple in CRT RPTV tech. They didn't design these things with enough memory or geometry/convergence capacity for $ reasons, like they did the big front projectors, which have no problem with this. But RPTVs had to sell at a certain pricepoint, and their hands were tied.

Overscan CAN be taken in, but it hoses your picture to do so. It can be brought back of course, and when resized to between 4-4.5%, will reveal those lost areas of video real estate and show you what you've been missing.
This also has a perk - you will now have more pixels/square inch showing, allowing for higher resolution once the geometry/convergence have beed redone. Once it has all been accomplished, you can typically sit 1/3 closer to your set than ever before, delivering you a half again bigger picture to watch from then on.

Reducing overscan is not easy and has a long learning curve, but is definitely worth it! It is a staple of my calibrations, always available as an extra to the basic calibration package.

Phone consultation is available if you want to try it on your own, with expert guidance from me.

Re: Top of picture cut off

Sounds like a problem on the deflection/power board....You can try replacing the vertical I/C and caps.......Or go for a new board.

Hello how do i set the convergence manualy on a pioneer elite pro-710hd projection tv i dont have the remote and dont know how to bring the menue up on the tv

You MUST have the remote to perform service operations on the Elites. Look on ebay or do a google search for Pioneer 710 remote.
There is no way to manually do convergence without a remote, and no way to call up the convergence menu.

My pioneer Pro-710 hd 64in keeps shutting down when turn on.

The most common problem this group of sets had was bad solder connections all over the power board that develop after some years of use----most of them I have repaired a total resolder of most or all connections on that board fixes the problem.

I have 65 inch pro elite 710hd 6 years old. Do I have to get analog box

Yes you still have to get digital to analog converter. Although you can feed a hd signal through the component inputs, the tv is still set up to only receive analog signals through the coaxial input
hope this helps

Pioneer elite tv turns off from a pop sound and manual says-will

It is most likely the power supply. Do not try to fix this yourself. There are LETHAL voltages inside such a TV, which can persist for WEEKS after it has been turned off.

no reset sequence. usually when the protection kicks in without any warning, it's the convergence ICs needing replacement.
