Question about Pioneer PRO-119 60" Rear Projection Television
I'm trying to diagnose a problem with my parents' Pioneer Elite PRO-119 rear projection television.
While watching the television (cable) the television made an audible snap and then went dead.
A repair man from the local audio video store (not a Pioneer Elite expert) came to the house to check it out. He said it was likely one of three things . . . 1) a problem with a solder on a circuit board; 2) if fixing the solder did not fix the problem, then a problem with the high voltage/energy power source; or 3) a problem with an audio source component.
The television is used with its internal audio . . . no external components are attached except for a cable box and a DVD player.
The repair guy fixed the solder on the circuit board, charged us an arm and a leg and then the problem happened again. He had told us that parts were not available for the television if it was something more significant than the solder.
I had this same problem...I replaced the flyback transformer, to no avail. What the heck do I do now, I'm at a loss and I want to just destroy this stupid thing sometimes- but it's the best TV I ever owned up until now.

Pioneers are fairly easy to troubleshoot. However if he solderd and that fixed it, is the set doing the same symptom as before he solderd it? I would recomend getting the service manual for the set and troubleshoot the start up voltage circuits. Let me know if you would like a link where to get a service manual
