Question about Pioneer Televison & Video

4 Answers

Hi I have a Pioneer PDP-436XDE its over 3 years old and has worked perfectly until today when it switched itself off and would not switch back on. Ive unplugged it from the mains and left it for some time but when I try to switch it back on the blue on light comes on and it looks like its going to be ok then the screen goes off and the red standby light on the tv flashes 7 times then pauses. Please can you give me some advice on how to fix this problem? Thanks Sam

    Thanks Gopi20 but what do I need to do to get this problem resolved. I'm not technical at all so your response doesn't really help me apart from giving me the detail to pass to a repair company?! Just thought its worth noting that I live in the UK not sure of this makes any difference to the problem or resolution?!

    How do I fix the problem my tv just switches off and once in standby mode it continually flashes 7 times then stops and then keeps repeating but you cant switch it back on without complete turning off the power first.

Looks like there may have been a recall for the power board in some Pioneer TVs, see here: http://www.avforums.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-322536.html

I would contact Pioneer, you may be able to get service for free or at a reduced rate.

Flashing 7-8 times is faulty power board. You need to contact a technician, follow instructions on the last pages of the user manual to contact a service in your area.

The reason for your tv not switching on properly may be due to

The main filter capacitor or other filter capacitors in the low voltage power supply is dried up and this can cause all kinds of regulation problems.

The power supply regulator is defective (or marginal) allowing excessive voltage on its output and then the X-ray protection circuitry shuts you down.

blue or red colour may be due to fault in chroma decoder circuitry.

Pioneer PDP 4330HD display flashes red LED 4 times


Hello,

Just seeing if you had resolved the problem as my mum's Pioneer PDP-433HDE which she bought back 2002 has developed this same fault.

It has been a perfect TV and done very well with plenty of good use, but I have a feeling the cost of repair - even if it is possibale will be costly.

Cheers

Nigel

Alas, the powerblock has gone.

Common problem on this model.

Only solution is replacement powerblock.

Pioneer used to repair this for nothing even out of warranty (they did for me), but they may not be so willing now, as your tele must be at least 6 years old. Unfortunately, it will be cheaper to buy a new TV than to pay for a contractor to fix it.

Power supply


I'm not receving any power to my PDP 502 MX and I read that this is due to a power supply failure with our particular models. You might want to contact Pioneer.
