Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I have a Pioneer HDTV Projection Monitor. Model # is as follows. #SD-533HD5. This was manufactured in June 2002. The middle gun is not on. This is the green gun. If I tap at the base of the gun, it will flash on, and may stay on or off. Eventually if it does come on, it will go back off and the screen turns Pink. I have been told the gun is bad? Is this true? i have been told that I could spray contact cleaner on one of the boards, and this may take care of the problem until another gun shows up. Is this true? How difficult would it be to change the gun myself?

    It is going to be extremely hard to locate a bad solder joint. They all look good on this gun and board. Any suggestions? One more senerio. Sometimes when it is first turned on, it will work for awhile, then gun goes out and picture turns pink. Would this indicate that the bad spot is most likely on the board? Sorry, just unable to determine a bad solder joint.

    Good call. I found the bad solder point on the bottom of the board of the gun. Now, I have soldered before, but I think this is a little more fragile than I have dealt with. How do I resolder without screwing the board up? Do I need to desolder first, then resolder? My soldering gun is fairly big, should I use something smaller?

Hi Rich.. I dont think it is a fualty gun in the first place! When you tap on it, then its coming on means that there is some dry solder(loose contact). Care fully examine the circuit for any broken or loose contacts. Re-solder any weak joints and it should be up and running..

    If you know how to use a multimeter it would just be a piece of cake! Just take down the readings and post them here.. If you cant do this too then better take the assistance of a tech and tell him to look for a dry solder.. trust me my monitor had the same problem and the tech just put his soldering gun on one of the Ics and Its back to normal

    You need not desolder the thing. But you should use a smaller soldering gun and also the smallest available soldering lead. Preferably 5.8mm or 8mm. Then carefully solder it.. Note that if it forces de-soldering feel free to do it.

My pioneer sd-533hd5 is 8-9 years old. how do i clean the lanses?


You should be able to access it from the back panel. After you remove the panel, the lenses should be mounted on a platform. If you are careful, you can manuever yourself in far enough to clean the inside of the display screen. Good luck!

Pioneer SD 533HD5 has pink screen


Sounds like the gun is trying to fire up but has internal problems. You may want to see if you want to tackle the job of changing it out. Check with MCM Electronics to see cost of a new gun. 1-800-543-4330 or www.mcmelectronics.com
