Question about Televison & Video

My pioneer dvd player keeps giving me an Error 3.3 message and shutting down. I have seen others online also asking what is the cause of this - but have not seen any answer. Does anybody know the cause and what to do?

    Ginko - the model is XV DV33 - I have seen on other posts that it could be an overheating issue, but haven't been able to relate that well to the player closing down. But it did have a smaller player sitting on it with DVDs on that - which might be causing the build up of heat??

Error 3.3 is an internal error caused by overheating. Some internal components might have gone faulty.

Hi.

There is no mention o error 3.3 in service manuals. The problem is however common and it is often reported as associated with overheating.

If the unit is freezing, common problems are related to overheating or to software faults.

I can be more specific if you give me the complete model of the unit.

If the unit is less of one year old, also remember to call Pioneer at the number listed on manual. The repair will be done by Pioneer.

Please let me know model of the unit. Most Pioneer units do not show error codes on display, in that case the number may refer to firmware or software revision, rather than to an error code.

Regards.

Ginko.

I have a pioneer vsx 07 11 and it says amplifier error


You see, the error message is coming from the power protection circuit which is constantly monitoring current being drawn from the receiver power supply. When the current exceeds the trip level it shuts down and give the error message.


power amplifiers has been shorted and the output transistors (one or more) have gone into breakdown and causing the excessive current drain. This will happen even though the speakers may not be connected to the amp outputs.

What can be done about "Unrecognisable and Unreadable" disc message from Pioneer DVR player. THe Background: We have just purchased a new Sony TV 46" Bravia bla blah blah. It's...


It's a hardware problem: the Star Wars disks are not as reflective as they should - the aluminium layer that was deposited during manufacturing isn't up to specs so they reflect less from the laser beam - and the sensor from the Pioneer is at the low limit of the specs. The end result is that the laser beam that reflects from these disks is too weak to activate the sensor so the disks are simply not accepted with that message.
Unfortunately there is no fix to that problem: you can't make the disks more reflective and you can't make the sensor more sensible. You will either have to use the older player for all the disks that will behave like that (and there will be others, you can be sure of that) or you will have to replace/return the Pioneer.

Region selection error in pioneer DV220KV


When it does it again, don't try to use the remote keys, instead use the controls on the DVD itself. It might be that you have somehow unlocked the region code and that's why it's asking. However some DVD players require the use of the controls on the DVD and remote to set the codes.

MAC PRO dual2.3- freezes, gray screen crash, freeze with hi fan mode,kernel panic reports, all require start button shut down. Some forums suggest ATI card failure. I'm lost.


All computers will shut them selves off or crash when fans are failing, or have failed. Cooling fans are plugged into the motherboard, and firmware on the MB keeps track of the system fans, along with everything else. If a system fan is failing, or has failed, the signal is sent to shut down. Some PC's will shut down cleanly, others give error messages, and some just freeze up. Of course, Bad RAM, video cards, and hard drives with bad sectors, can also cause problems like you have discribed.
I would write down any error messages, and beep codes, and then look them up online for a place to start.

Pioneer DV 310 K region free


Step 1) Download the pioneer firmware here http://www.pioneerfaq.info/index.php?question=Firmwares

The site says the firmware only works on region 2 players. For this model it worked for my region 4 player in Australia

Step 2) Burn this file to a CD-ROM with name PIONEER as per these instructions - http://www.pioneerfaq.info/english/burn_guide.php

Step 3) Load the CD and your DVD player with ask you to flash the firmware. It says press play to start but instead HOLD DOWN ENTER during the entire process. DO NOT switch off your DVD during this time. When the tray opens take the CD ROM out but keep the DVD on. The flashing can take up two to three minutes. During this time HOLD DOWN ENTER ON THE REMOTE. The entire time!

Step 4) The DVD player will reboot. The tray should be empty. It will then load the tray back into the player. If the signal is disorted switch on and off.

Your done! Should work.

The most complex way of region freeing a DVD I have ever endured! :)
