How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON?Count it carefully.These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes.From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV.This will make repair easy.

OK Its your power supply and it can be fixd for free due to a recall.
PLEASE READ BELOW what I found out.
Here's the whole notice:
Important: Free Power Supply Replacement for Certain Pioneer Plasmas
Pioneer is continuing to offer a free, in-home power supply replacement for certain of its second and third generation plasma models listed below for consumers who experience a problem with the original power supply. If a consumer model is not listed below, no power supply replacement is needed and no further action needs to be taken.
If you own or use a plasma listed below, please call our toll free hotline at 1-800-421-1404 to arrange a time to have your plasma's power supply upgraded in your home at no charge.
Consumer Plasma Models (12 listed):
PDP-505HD PDP-503PU PDP-5030HD PDP-5031HD PDP-433PU PDP-4300 PDP-4310 PDP-4330HD PRO-800HD PRO-800HDI PRO-1000HD PRO-1000HDI The issue with the power supply in the plasmas listed above does not pose any health or safety risk. Pioneer has received reports that the power supply in the affected models may fail. In some cases, a loud popping sound can be heard when a power supply fails. After the power supply fails, the plasma is no longer operable.
We apologize for any inconvenience, and we thank you for your cooperation.
For video data transmission from the Media Receiver to the PDP-434HD and PDP-504HD-series Plasma Displays, digital signals are used. Therefore, this unit adopts the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) system for copyright protection. This unit is also provided with a detection switch (TRAP switch) that will prohibit the unit from being turned on again "if the upper plate of the unit is accidentally opened," in order to prevent the panel technology from being leaked out. The TRAP switch is disabled while the unit is turned off. When performing internal diagnosis of the PDP, fix the switch to the OFF position using adhesive tape before turning on the unit. After servicing, be sure to remove the adhesive tape.
Well you've probably guessed what my next question is......How do i unlock this receiver?. I'm told that it's simply a matter of keying in 3 buttons of the remote in a defined sequence. I have the service manual but it doesn't say much about unlocking.
"The next generation of Blu Ray players will be equipped with powerful explosives that will kill everybody in sight if the unit detects possible tampering or if someone puts a DVD+R in it." )
( They use a photocell to kill the DVI board if light hits it (as in the backboard removed). The TV continues to work, but not in HD. bypass the Pioneer's switch, or put black tape over the photocell.
If the light on the media reciever doesn't come on then the power supply in that needs to be replaced by a service tech. If you disconnect the 2 cables from the media reciever and the panel and then try to turn on the panel it should light with red and green squares for a few seconds but will turn off as it needs the media reciever to be connected.
Contact Pioneer at 1-800-421-1404 about getting an in-home power supply replacement. This is a known issue with some plasma displays. Some of you would experience a loud pop and then the power supply fails. You get a red light below the ON button, when you press on, the red light will turn green for a second and then back to red. The plasma display will not turn on after the power supply fails. Call Pioneer at 1-800-421-1404.

You need the pioneer media cables hooked up to the media receiver to the plasma unit itself. each end has 2 different plugs. one has 2 thumb screws and the other is a squeezable end that clicks into place. They MUST be on before you plug in any power what so ever!!!! And yes, other information is being passed through.
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…
