Question about Pioneer SD-533HD5 53" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

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

We have a 50" Pioneer TV that is 14 years old. About 3 months ago, it started going black for a few seconds then it comes back on. The length of time has increased, but it still comes back on after about 20-25 seconds.

About 2 weeks ago we started seeing a red/blue arched shadow on the bottom third of the screen. It seems to be permanent.

Do you think this is worth fixing?

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

The picture come on then goes black and then the television turns off. I thought it might be a bulb problem (4 years old). So I bought a new bulb, seemed to work and then began to go black again with all 3...


when the colorwheels start to go bad this is the symtom that shows up. try this listen carefully to the rear of the tv near the lamp door. as you turn off the tv if you hear a slight grinding noise as the colorwheel slows down that means the bearings inside the colorwheel are dry and you will need to replace the colorwheel.

I have a sony 50 in rear projection. 9 years old


Sounds like the CRT tubes are going out which is fairly common on Sony. Inside the back of the TV there are 6 knobs - 2 for each color...one is for focus - dont touch - the other for brightness...turn down the brightness just a hair untill the lines go away.

The same thing happened to my HLP5063W. Researching the internet forums I concluded the problem was with the color wheel, which I replaced. As it turns out the old one was completely smashed. Go to www.jangro.com for replacement instructions.
