My Pioneer Plasma PDP-503PU HD went out. It made a broken glass sound

Dear bob_bitt,
I am very sorry to say this but,looks like your TV is dead for ever.
Plasma TV's have a glass tube inside them that fires the pictures onto the screen. The tube in your TV must have reached its EoL (End of Life) and hence,would have shattered.(That should explain the shattering glass)
Before you throw out your TV though,try to get it checked by a professional technician. But if you bought your TV around 10 years ago,you will be better off buying a new TV.

We own a 50 projection tv and when turned on the picture fades in and out then after a bit is fine. this happens everytime we turn it on what is the prob;em and how can it be fixed if at all


The symptoms you describe are not uncommon in old sets. The loss of high voltage can be from a leakable path around the picture tube caused by dust and dirt; it can be caused by a weak flyback transformer that gives out after a long warm up; it can be from an overheated output transistor in the horizontal output stage; and others.

The fact that is occasionally comes back on would tend to indicate the problem may be from too much dust and dirt around the picture tube; hence somewhat dependent on humidity and environmental factors.

But, it really requires a hands-on analysis by someone who can take a look inside the set to determine the exact cause but if you wish to get inside the tv yourself don't do it without careful instructions as the high voltage can stay around for hours after the set is turned off

What can i do if tv's lamp no good?

This T.V. doesn't use a lamp. If you're referring to the picture tube, there is no fixing this other than making slim adjustments on the knobs on the flyback. Don't tweak it too much or it will cause retrace lines. However, in most cases a bad picture tube means its time for a new T.V.

I have an older Sharp TV. The color of the screen all of a sudden has darkened some. Is there a way on the tv to lighten the screen? Thank you!


This problem can result from the aging of various components within your set, in general with older TVs, particularly sets of 15 years or older for example tend to suffer from capacitors that degrade - effectively reducing the maximum level of picture illumination available. Another issue for old sets that have been used extensively is that of the picture tube's electron gun aging, over time the gun produces fewer electrons to fire at the phosphor coating hence causing less "glow" - this can be sometimes improved by adjustments to the tube. All in all the set may require a decent service to ***** what aged components need replacing. Some later TVs do have a trimpot on the flyback transformer to allow the tube's brightness to be increased, but most older sets lacked this feature. SHARP did have this feature on many of it's 90s TVs but it needs to be adjusted with care by suitable techs due to the dangerous voltages present.

Hope this info is of some help, Regards.

I was wondering if about the flash feature.

Hi Amber,

Yes, you would need film. The film pack contains the battery that powers the camera.

Toshiba television

If the glass picture tube is cracked it is not repairable. In some cases it would be possible that the tv would still work if it has a cracked glass but it would not be advisable to use it as it could allow x-ray radiation to escape. The tube is a vacuum and a cracked tube would lose it's vacuum (**** air inside) and cause it to instantly burn out when turned on. Sorry :(

Picture bigger than screen

This can be caused not enough high voltage going to the picture tube. If the picture seems to get larger and smaller depending on the brightness of the scene on the screen that is probably what it is. IF that is the problem, there isn't much a normal consumer can do.
