Question about Pioneer Televison & Video

I have a Pioneer Elite PRO-940 - problem exists when the tv is powered off - a component (might be a power supply or transformer) kicks on within a second or two after being turned off - emits a low humming sound - doesn't seem to affect any operation...any advice?

    I have no audio or video components attached to this TV other than HD cable box; the only cables useed are a cable coax and a HDMI cable; the TV is hung from a std wall mount; it appears that the hum is coming from the TV speaker, again, immediatley after the TV is powered OFF???

  • dagreen Jul 16, 2008

    I tried turning the TV off with the remote and the ON/Off button - no change, as I still hear the humming noise. BTW, the power cord from the TV is plugged into a 900 joule surge protector...fyi...I've even tried plugging direct into outlet (bypassing the surge protector)...no change...

When you shut off the set, most of the set is off, there is a portion that runs continuously. This is what allows you to use a remote to turn it on. Normally, the only active circuit is the CPU and the InfraRed receiver. Once the IR receives a power on from the remote, the CPU turns on the remainder of the set. It sounds like the audio amp section is not completely shutting down quickly enough. I am assuming that the hum stops after a period of time. This can be because of a defective bleeder resistor that normally drains the power supply voltage once the set is turned off. This is not harmful, just annoying. If the hum remains on without stopping, then that is another issue. I'll try to get the service lit on this to get you the probable part.

Keep me posted.

It could be picking up AC noise from the ground on the electric socket, caused by your air conditioner, fridgerator, etc.. Try plugging in the TV to a different electric plug, or buy a special surge strip that eliminates dirty AC power. Like this one made by APC. Monster also makes one but is a lot more expensive.

Try to turn it off first using the remote, then press the power button on the TV... it is better to use a surge protector or an outlet with a transformer, thatg can regulate the power that connect to the tv..

let me know

I have a pioneer elite pro 940 hd. The power button when pressed does not turn the tv on. If I unplug the tv I can hear it power down, when I plug it back in a red light comes on and then goes off ?...


Hello,

You need to check the output voltages of the power supply to see which one goes off. It may be due to short circuits some where,if otherwise, power supply board is dead, u know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

I hope this will help in solving the problem....

Pioneer plasma display pro- 940 hd. All voltajes in power supply board are ok , there is no stand by light,does not power on , no any thing at all. Would you helpo me. Tony


Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

My Pioneer Elite PRO-111FD just shut off on it's own, and now won't turn back on. No green or red indicator light... nothing. Any suggestions?


Check your power source (electrical outlet) and the power cable. If electrical outlet is ok, try using a different power cable (the cable that you plug on to the electrical outlet going to your TV set). If everything is ok but still no indicator light, call your technician there might be a problem with the TV power supply.

Pioneer Elite Pro 620 HD TV on several occasions the screen has gone black but sound continues and the power green libht remains on. After shutting down for 10-15 minutes picture comes back.


Pioneer Elite Pro rear projection 620HD - Picture is still there but brightness and "white" have faded over years allowing for mediocre viewing when room is dark only. During the daylight picture is visible if viewed straight on and within 15 feet from set. Any suggestions?

Power problem on Pioneer Pro-700HD


The failure is not on the power supply but the convergence amplifiers STK ICs have the 24 volts shorted.
If that fuse is blowing, de-solder the convergence ICs and put a new fuse to power up the TV; you should see distorted video when the TV powers up and the fuse should not blow.
The service manual migth not help much in this case since the failure is easy to pin point.

Good Luck.

This a factory issue and usually requires service. Most cases it is a bad power supply caused by a surge or powering off and on too fast ... sorry I wish I had better news

Pioneer Elite PRO-520HD wont stay on


It is most likely just solder connections on your power supply. If the only diag LED that lights is on the supply, then thats usually the case. You can unplug the set and remove the supply to fix it with a little soldering. You have to remove the metal board supporter from the bottom of the board and solder quite a few connections. Look for cracked connections on the power connectors to the rest of the set, and also connections on the main transformer. If you need soldering experience, get a kit at radio shack and build a little project to get some practice.

Pioneer elite pro 100


My set is doing the same thing again. The last time I fixed this (4 years ago) it was a capacitor gone bad in the power supply for the 24v standby circuit. (C166)
The service manuals can be ordered directly from Pioneer Part Number ARP3014 for Pro-100 model.
