Question about Pioneer SD-643HD5 64" Rear Projection Television
OK, your Daytek 3220 is not a projection TV, but an LCD TV.
Second, I hate to say it, but you bought a piece of junk. They have excellent pictures when they're new, but after a few years capacitors in the power supply go bad. When this happens, either the controls and remote stop working, or the TV starts blanking out, or it will just die and never work again.
The solution is to go buy a new TV. The power supplies are no longer available, and even if you could get one very often the faulty power supply has damaged the main board and/or the LCD panel.
In about 5% of these cases, replacing the capacitors will get the TV to work, in about 25% it will get the TV to work, but because the main board has been damaged the TV will intermittently blank out. In another 25% the LCD panel has been damaged so once repaired you will see dark streaky patches across the display.
In the rest of the units you could have all three problems or any combination of them.
It'ds really too bad because they use a Samsung panel, and have excellent pictures when they're working.
