Question about Pioneer PDP-4280HD 42 in. Plasma Television

2 Answers

Removed the back of the TV. Forgot about the safety switch on back. Now tv does not start. I can't find the reset procedure for this issue. I had to do this a few years ago when I replaced a power supply.

    There is a reset procedure for resetting what Pioneer calls the trap switch, I think they call it this cause it gets so many techs. With a pioneer remote with tv in stanby, press display button, wait 3 seconds then ^ < ^ > then hold power. TV should come on in innitiate set up mode. press mute button on remote until initiate is on screen. press display until only one light appears on tv front., fixed it myself with a lot of help from PIONEER techs. thanks all

55UES 7000 FACTORY HARD forgot code


There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight; will be better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

I have a sony 55"


Hi,
3 times red standby light flashing indicates that lamp cover (first thing that you removed from tv to replace lamp) is not fixed properly on tv, make sure lamp cover is attached correctly with tv to solve this issue.
3 times blinking is not problem of fan or anything else, it is related to lamp cover that engages safety micro switch inside to turn On tv.
Thanks.

Changed lamp green light comes tv plays for about 1 or 2 minutes tv goes blank red flashes 3 times.


Not 100% sure but I am currently looking into this. 2 things it might be which are most probable. I replaced my lamp a few years back with no issues. This time around I figured I'd be proactive and bought a new lamp as my current one was going dim. Not unusable but I could tell. Lamp arrived and I put it in. Started up, great! Then after a few minutes it shut down and the red LED would blink 3 times. I removed the lamp and replaced it after unplugging the tv and turned it on. This time it ran about 20 minutes and same thing! Tried a third time and had the same thing. So I put the old bulb back in, and this time it didn't even turn on! I removed it and with a flashlight looked in there. There are two safety switches. The first is a very small pressure switch at the base of where the bulb interfaces to the TV. That switch ensures the bulb housing is seated. Secondly there is a switch in the rear side where the second door with the lever lock is. When you rotate it the switch is engaged. I replaced the housing carefully and made sure everything was tightly seated. The tv has been on for about an hour now no issues with the old bulb.

I have two theories and am leaning toward the second one I will suggest. One is that the bulb is somehow overheating as it is newer and brighter, or is somehow defective. The other theory is that as the bulb heats up the switch might be getting dislodged. I am leaning towards this given that it is working with the old bulb. But I am not certain. Soon I will try the new bulb again and may even attempt to slightly bend the switch out a little so that it is easier to engage.

Power went out and when it come back on the tv took a long time to start and the screen was verticle stripes (multi-color)


Check if the issue is with the TV by connecting any other device.
If the issue is with the TV, then try resetting the TV to the factory settings by performing the below steps:
To reset the TV, turn ON the TV, then while holding down the UP ARROW button on the Remote Control, press the Power button on the TV front panel.
The TV will turn OFF and then turn ON again. Then release the UP ARROW button to complete the reset procedure.

If the issue still persists, try Power resetting the TV.
To Reset the TV, please disconnect the power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute). Then, reconnect the power cord and power on the TV.
If the issue still persists, service is required for the TV.

Olevia 42"


Olevia LCD 542I - Had the same issue for a week until the tv would not turn on anymore, after several attempts it came back on. A few days later the tv turned off then only the standby light was on, then lost the standby light as well. After researching the problem it could be in two areas, either the power supply or main board. Removed the back and found the power supply had several capacitors that were bulging on the top and appeared the fluid was leaking, all signs of a failed part, removed the PS and replaced four capacitorst that had shown some issues. If you can removed the PS and check for a number on the board, mine was FSP271-4F02, and find someone who has some electronic circuit capablilty, the issue may be resolved at a fraction on the cost of a new power supply.
