Question about Pioneer PRO-520HD 53" Rear Projection Television

Pioneer Elite PRO-520HD wont stay on

About two weeks ago, my Pioneer Elite PRO-520HD TV's picture would "jump" periodically, like it does when you change aspect ratio modes (Full HD -> Natural Wide -> etc...). The jumping would be accompanied by a popping noise coupled into the set's integrated speakers.

Last weekend, the TV would not come out of standby. When I pulled the plug, and plugged it back in, the TV comes out of standby, powers up and then shuts down again - back into standby. Some investigating (and purchase of the service manual) revealed that the internal protection circuits have kicked in - the Power Down LED is now lit on the Power Supply Assy. I'm not sure how to proceed. The service manual is written in Jenglish. It seems to be pointing to the need to replace the SIGNAL Assy, but at almost $500 for a replacement board, I want to make sure that's in fact what I need to replace. Any ideas how to verify that's in fact what is bad?

Thanks in advance! Tim

    I have the same problem on a 610HD. If I turn off the TV's main power button on the front of the TV then turn the button back on the TV turns back on. Sometimes the TV will work fine for several hours. Other times the TV "pops" off every few minutes. The TV remains in the standby mode after "poping" off.

It is most likely just solder connections on your power supply. If the only diag LED that lights is on the supply, then thats usually the case. You can unplug the set and remove the supply to fix it with a little soldering. You have to remove the metal board supporter from the bottom of the board and solder quite a few connections. Look for cracked connections on the power connectors to the rest of the set, and also connections on the main transformer. If you need soldering experience, get a kit at radio shack and build a little project to get some practice.

Dim/dark Picture


The model indicated here is rear projection that uses three picture tubes.

If rear cover is removed--can be done by removing entire front screen but there are hazards like damaging the screen---with rear cover removed clean the lens in the three round cyclinders which point up and are hard to miss===

They are the light source for the picture---there is if you look up inside and to the rear a mirror but unless grimy it rarely needs cleaning.

clean the lens with a lens cloth or even a paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on the towel.

Picture has a red hue to it. I have checked the convergence and the lines up and stays put. The TV was working great when I turned it off and when I turned it back on this condition was present.


The problem could be a few things, check your color balance and contrast or try adjusting the guns. If its a fuzzy red haze, kind of like a halo around things, it may just be that the crt coolant fluid needs changed. I, myself, have had a problem with the tinted halo in my rear projection Toshiba tv, I replaced the crt coolant fluid and the picture returned to good as new.

Our Pioneer Elite Pro-520HD turns off by itself.


These intermittent failures are hard to find. The "pop" noise you're earing might be cause by a coolant moisture near the high voltage connection, sometimes the coolant might leak onto the CRT causing the high voltage to arc creating a conductive pattern for the high voltage to discharge and that will also cause the TV to shutdown.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Colors are skewed on Pioneer Pro-520HD


you can replace your the convergence chips on the convergence board. The board is to identify because it has a large heat sink. The convergence chips normally starts with STK... After you find the chip, you can buy online (ebay has a lot of listing) and costs around $10. If you know how to solder, it is very easy to do. I just replace the convergence chips on myPRO-610HD and it works perfectly.

Is the RGB computer-like jack at the rear of the Pioneer PRO-520HD projection TV a digital input like a DVI input? I'm trying to use the TV for BluRay discs. Chris Fox


The RGB input is like a computer monitor input, and may handle HD. I would recommend using component video instead for ease of use, but also most TVs will only handle a couple resolutions, but your component jack should handle 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i giving you flexabilty and a comprable picture.
