Question about Pioneer Televison & Video
That sounds to me like the hard drive has crashed and it can't find the required "hand shake" from the drive, hence taking such a long time to initialise and then showing rubbish. Unfortunately fitting a new hard drive to most of these machines requires matching hardware to firmware and that is achieved with the use of a "Service Remote". So fitting a replacement drive may not fix it without matching the new drive with the special remote.
If you have a Pioneer Dealer in your area, get them to estimate the repair and weigh it against the cost of a replacement.
Hope that helps.
