Hi there, first, there's a common problem with flat panels, and that is overheating issues.

Most flat panels in general suffer from powering up due to failure of capacitors that are located on the internal power supply board, reason for this is extensive heating .

If you don't mind to disassemble your TV, look at the power supply first; look for burnt parts and specially for bad capacitors.

A sign of a bad capacitor is to look at the top of the capacitor, if the top is flat is good, if the top is bulged up is bad.

Another example of a bad cap.

The top of the capacitor has to be totally flat to be good, if is even a slight bulge on the cap, is bad

If your willing to do this task and with a little soldering knowledge, you can go and get these parts at a computer parts store for a few bucks and you can save a ton this way.

Hope this help and thanks for choosing Fixya.

    I wanted to add this, the standby light means, your TV is getting power to the power supply but not through out the circuit board which explains the above..

    Another example on a working TV is when you turn off your TV, your cutting the power to the circuit board but there's still power being fed to the power supply which explains the standby light.

Anyway to turn on pioneer pdp 4350 with no remote?

If I'm thinking correctly, there are buttons right side of the TV. Besides the power buttons on the front of the TV and the box, there is a Standby/ON button. Somewhat hidden, but it's there. The top button on the right should turn the whole thing ON.

Pioneer media receiver won t turn on

If the light on the media reciever doesn't come on then the power supply in that needs to be replaced by a service tech. If you disconnect the 2 cables from the media reciever and the panel and then try to turn on the panel it should light with red and green squares for a few seconds but will turn off as it needs the media reciever to be connected.
