Pioneer SD-533HD5 Green distortion

TV was working fine and all of a sudden the green image is totally warped and out of alignment. This is not something that can be adjusted through convergence process. Assume it's a part that went out of whack. Green image actually bows in from top and bottom.

Picture is always dark


Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then yourconvergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. The power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

What you will need to do is convergence. You can get a repair kit fromTvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement parts,step by step instructions, support, etc.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Unplug the TV for maybe 10 minutes, then turn it on. Sometimes these units simply need to recycle. If that doesn't work, you've likely got serious problems.

Pioneer sd-533hd5, STKs changed, getting blue screen but not pict


Did you have double image before changing the stk's ? If not then there was no need to change them.. Pioneers are known for bad solder connections especially in the power supply section.. suggest checking that when you changed the stk's that there are no solder bridges between the pins of either stk ICs

Power problem (switches to standby)


its the problem of the ics on the main power supply board

Do the IC heat sinks get warm??

If they do not, check fuses F852 - 2AMP, F853 - 1.25AMP, F850 & F851 - ALL 5AMP on the power deflection pcb. THESE ARE NOT GLASS FUSES. They are usually about the size of a 1 watt resistor and either green or orange in color. They are soldered in. The nomenclature is printed on the component side of the board. They are all about centered on the opposite edge of the PCB as the high voltage transformer.

If you have cleaned up the mess you describe you most likely have one of these fuses blown.


if dont have any technical knowledge its advisable to call a technician as it is worth getting it fixed.

thanks.
