The first thing you need to do is establish whether there is an actual fault with the MR or whether it's a setup/connection issue. You haven't indicated anything you have already tried in order to rectify the problem so I'll have to start at the beginning with the basics:

Isolate the MR

1. Make sure the MR power is off using the "POWER" button on the front of the unit.
2. Disconnect ALL cables from the back of the MR. If you have several connections be sure to make a note of where they all reconnect
3. Unplug the MR from the power outlet and leave disconnected for at least 5 minutes.

The software/firmware in a MR can "crash" in the same way that your PC does. Unplugging it for a few minutes should re-boot the system - basically the same as starting up your PC.

4. Plug the MR into the power outlet again but do not connect any cables.
5. Switch the MR on using the "POWER" button on the front of the unit.

If the MR is still stuck in standby, you have a fault with the MR.

If the MR will power on:

6. Switch the power off again and re-connect the cables for one device at a time then test the MR. Make sure the cable are connected to the correct sockets.

I suggest you connect the TV first then test the MR will power on. Next connect the cable box and test the MR again. If everything is OK, continue to connect any other devices one at a time and test the MR after each connection.

If the MR fails to power on after connecting a specific device, this will give a good indication of where the fault is and what to do next.

If you can re-connect all of the devices and the MR functions correctly, then it was just a simple case of the MR having "crashed" and you can resume normal operation. Should the fault re-occur, simply unplug the box, leave for a few minutes and switch back on. You can avoid disconnecting everything unless the box fails to power up after the "hard reset" - i.e. unplugging it.

This is a very simple test to determine what/where the fault is. Please try all of the above and then post back with the results if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: Upgrading media receiver on Pioneer PlasmaPDP-5030HD

Hello, I to had this problem, and my original media receiver finally died. I did however go to my local electronics store ( I'm not talking about the big box stores) And bought a $7.00 dvi to hdmi adapter. I simply unplugged the "system cables from the back of the media receiver and placed the adapter at the end of the DVI side of the cables, and plugged the now hdmi side into my hdmi splitter box and I am off and running! The only downfall is it does not carry sound only video. But this in not a problem for me as I have a surround sound system. This was a very inexpensive fix for me/ I hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Pioneer PDP-R05G

This is a classic "Hic-upping" switchmode power supply problem. The protection circuitry inside the SMPSU, has sensed a severe potential problem, and is attempting the shutting of the set, down to avoid a fire, explosion, or both.
This set had developed a problem, that is so severe that the set must be shut down, (This set should be removed from the Power),
What is happening is the internal "Fault" that is causing the Protection Circuitry , to detect the problem and attempt to shut down the set, keeps restarting the set, because as soon as it shuts down, the "Faulty" component(s) cool down?, and the "Fault" ostensibly "Clears" so the PSU starts up again, only for the component(s) to heat up, whatever, again and fail, so it shuts down, and if left unattended, this would continue on until the part eventually failed. As related this is called a "Hic-upping Power Supply". Any fault that involves the power supply is usually quite serious, and needs a professional, usually, unless one is familiar with servicing current day, televisions.
And in my professional recommendation, you should get a "Quote" for repair, from, an, Approved Service Center. Now, this point is very important for a good result, Always contact, their "Local" or a, "Head Office" Philips in your case. Ask them, for a referral to an authorised servicing center, where you ask for a "Quote". Now, when you get the information you want, then you can decide as to repair of replacement.
The reason we want an approved agent, is that way, all the engineers are trained on their own brand sets, they have seen almost all faults, and will get the job done quicker, and for less cost, and usually have parts on hand, also sometimes, there has been a service bulletin in issued and the repair may be subsided or even free. There are many, many, many reasons that display this symptom, one must work through the troubleshooting steps to isolate and identify, the Cause and repair that and any damage done.
service manual link above,
as an aside here, sometimes things in storage can quickly degrade especially big low value capacitors, these increase in internal resistance, and all sorts of problems ensue, this is why, say, military things are cycled at least weekly when in "Moth balls" to prevent exactly this.

Pioneer 409 setting up for surround sound

I think there is a switching problem in the surround receiver. I would take the receiver to a qualified servicer. There is nothing user serviceable in the unit. Question .Why are you using optical output from ps3. I recommend you connect all you a/v devised to the tv. Then connect the opt out of tv to receiver. that way what ever you are viewing will send audio via opt out of tv to receiver. that way you do not have to switch input on receiver. Hope this helps.

My HTR-6060 plays through the tuner and dvd but not the DTV/CBL

Digital settings need to be assigned by the receiver in the ption Menu >> Audio Select.

Check the one for the HDMI from DTV/CBL.

I have no sound through my surround sound when playing ps3

The optical audio out from the TV only works for the TV's tuner, probably. Hook-up optical from Cable/SAT and from PS3 boxes to DVD/Receiver.

Sound from tuner but no other devices

The RX-V365 cannot process audio from the HDMI cables (you will still be able to hear it on your TV), you will need to run a seperate coaxial or optical cable into the audio input for the relevant component on the back of the RX-V365.

My speakers arn't working with my new t.v.

Any sound from other sources ie. a CD/DVD unit, Tuner etc.? If so then the issue is the signal path fron the TV to receiver, What cableing do you have from TV audio output? Try standard analog 2 channel to the receiver tv in, be sure you select TV on the receiver mode,also check the TV sound menu options, some require that you disable TV speakers and use the audio line-out option fixed or variable.

Denon 4308

ok sounds simple you ran the lines threw the tv instead all lines should be ran threw the sterio

see once you turn tv off this cuts the outputs out so now no sound will happen
your sterio should be equipted to take inputs of tv
you want everything to be inputed threw receiver thats why they call it a receiver the outputs on tv goto inputs on receiver
you need to redo your wireing so that this which i described is correct again

1 front speaker and 1 surround speaker won't work on cable selection

theres probably a problem with the right channel cable or plug that connects the tv to the reciever, or the tv is set to mono audio.
