Question about Pioneer Projection Televisions

4 Answers

I have a Pioneer PDP505PG about 4 years old. About a week ago it started flashing every 7 seconds until it went into standby mode. I turned it off and the next day it worked fine. Last night it did it again and now doesn't work. your ideas would be appreciated. I have heard that it may need to be re gassed or something like that? Cheers Mark Brebner

Mark,

good day
re-gassing may also be a fix since the TV won't somehow turn on or go off from standby, regassing/recharging is like fixing or reconstructing the plasma so that after 10-15 years of use, you will get a "like-new" display from the unit.

about the standby, if the unit realizes that it has an internal issue (specially with the plasma's going bad) it will not allow you to turn it on because forcing the plasma to work if it is worn out will cause more damage. much like a breaker, it avoids further damage to the whole circuit.

best move is to get it checked by pioneer or a local repair shop that fizes pioneer, also note that regassing or resharging will cost arouns $100 to $400

good luck

You need to try a hard reset of the television (unplug the set for a couple of hours and plug it back in). If that does not work, you most likely need a new power supply. the safe mode is preventing damage to the unit if the power supply is not working.
Let me know if you need help doing that yourself. You may want to try one of our nearby professionals.

Pioneer SD-P55A5 shut off during use and wont advance past standby mode


This is a problem related to the hue controlls in the TV. It is quite common.

Fix: You can go into the TV settings and try adjusting the hue/tint there.

If adjusting settings does not work, request help from a technician to fix it for you since it will take adjusting the hue internally and if you do not do it correctly it can damage your television.

I hope this helps ya!

Samsung HC-P4752W Does Not Turn ON


The proble you have is an intermittant power supply or sweep power supply. Unless you can find a bad connection on the power and deflection board, this could be a very difficult problem to find. I have ran across this problem a couple of times, and after spending countless hours troubleshooting, I replaced the main board and all the problems were taken care of. The board part number is at samsungparts.com and I found the board for you. it is located here: http://www.samsungparts.com/part_detail.asp?catalog%5Fname=Parts+and+Accessories&product%5Fid=BP94%2D01266A&search%5Fmodel=HCP4752W Good Luck

50" Pioneer TV blacks out and has shadow on the bottom third


yes it is worth fixing.if you r getting it repaired for the first time.
but you will have to wait for some long time to get it repaired as the tv is very old its very difficult to get the parts for reparing it.

the problem what you r facing is the problem of the convergence in your main board of the tv.
it has to be repaired.
i will advise you to get it repaired as it will work.

for doing it your self you can try clicking this link and following the given instructions in it

Power/standby light flashes 7 times and the tv doesn't turn on


Audio Protect (7 Flash): When DC voltage is detected at the speaker or
woofer outputs, IC3604/pin128 (TV-micro) goes low and IC3604 turns off
the main power (AC relay turns OFF).
Troubleshooting Tips:
1) Main cause of defective will be located on the KD-board
2) Confi rm KD-board is securely seated on the G2-board
3) Replace KD-board

Power cuts off Pioneer SD-P50A5-K about 9 years old


Probably started as a bad solder connection but if it's blowing fuse FU106 now, you're probably in for a new set as that usually means your convergence IC's are bad along with a pair of darlington transistors that's mounted to the heatsink nearby. With the age of the set it may not be worth the trouble. If no fuses are blowing, you could still have a bad solder connection near the Switched Mode Power supply transformer. If that isn't it, you could have a bad High Voltage Block and you may end up having to replace the deflection board as well thank you Pioneer.

Sony Wega kdf-55wf655 rear projection set keeps turning on and off


If picture quality is poor, be sure you aligned the bulb in the correct manner and be sure the cover for the bulb is not loose. Also, you might want to re check you picture setting as it might have gotten reset when you pulled the plug (I hope you pulled the plug when replacing the bulb).
Heres another solution (maybe temporary) to the problem of no picture and no sound for 30 seconds. I had my tv's power saving setting on "standard" before. After I switched it to "reduced", the problem was fixed. It has been almost two weeks without the problem. I think its a good fix until the new bulb comes in the mail.
