    Hi - we have a 60 in Pioneer Pro-200 and the tv will turn on for about 5 min - then a "pop" sounds and the tv will go off. If anyone has any ideas on what the problem is - whether it is a fuse - resistor or something else that I can repair myself - your advice would be greatly appreciated !

Since the set needs to be diagnosed you have to take it into a repair shop.

Your specific problem indicates that a component is heating up then opening or closing to it's natural state. It is not a fuse or resistor. Obviously fuses can be reset or new one put in but when it comes to the smaller elements (resistors, transistors, capacitors) if they "pop" they are destroyed, so since you can turn the set on later this should not be the case.

For a power surge just use a surge protector to see if this remedies the situation, not to mention they help keep the set "healthier" due to brown-outs, etc.

You could also open the back up and watch what happens - see if there is a flash and get back with me. But a word of CAUTION, there is high voltage, so don't touch anything inside when the set is on or for at least 5 minutes afterward (let the capacitors discharge).

My HD rear projection television keeps blowing a fuse. Everything was working well last night then it blew the fuse I replaced it and it blew again.

On these sets if you replace a fuse either you have a short OR the fuse is a generic one------replacement fuses from say Radio Shack will even if correct amperage and voltage blow for no reason-----most of the fuses in these sets are actually thermal or slow blow types.

With the set unplugged take a meter and check both sides of the fuse to ground in the set. If the fuse that is blowing at once is the one connected to the power cord it is likely incorrect fuse or generic junk fuse was used to replace it.

My set is doing the same thing again. The last time I fixed this (4 years ago) it was a capacitor gone bad in the power supply for the 24v standby circuit. (C166)
The service manuals can be ordered directly from Pioneer Part Number ARP3014 for Pro-100 model.

if the fuse blows after replacing then there is a short cicuit inside the set. most likely a diode has shorted in the power supply. check the bridge rectifiers for short and any transistor in the power supply.

Pioneer Pro-118 won't turn on

Take off back cover. The problem power board is to the right of the board where the power plug feeds into the TV. There is a large white fuse right bend the power plug. With a meter it read ok; about 8 inches deeper into the TV on that board was the resister next to two fuses. My 4 amp 125 volt fuse did not read on my meter. After replacing, it worked fine. Check all three fuses while you're in there.
