Question about Pioneer PRO-710HD 64" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Screen off/popping on problem

Sorry if this is brief. 3rd try trying to reach you. My TV shuts off after some brightness flickering imbalance and then comes back on 30 minutes later with a loud pop. The down-time interval seems to be getting longer.

Thanks,
Leo Hughes

    I have the same symptoms and thank you for your insite. I have been auditioning all of the newest TV's available and can't find any that are as forgiving to **** signal as my Pioneer is. I love the detail the "top of the line" new Plasma's and LCD's give you when you are watching a Blu-Ray disc. But I'm grossed out by their inability to deal with old technology, "****" signal. I'm sick of having TV's that are capable of reproducing a great image while living in a country where almost all off our sourse signal is decades behind the times.

If you are still running your set with the
intermittencies happening occasionally, TURN IT OFF NOW
AND UNPLUG IT UNTIL TIME TO REPAIR THE BOARD! If it
has shown signs of occasional malfuction and you are
still running it, you are playing Russian Roullette
with your multi-thousand dollar investment.

if you are currently using your set while it's in this
compromised condition of blue flashing, inconsistent
brightnesses, shutdowns - not only are you
risking a ground letting go on a regulation circuit,
causing your voltage to go into runaway, but
you are also risking spikes going directly downline to
the rest of your set. Hinky connections
cause spikes. There's no way to protect the rest of
your set from these spikes by installing a
surge protector on your main power plug, which is way
too far away from the circuitry concerned,
downline from the PS board, to be of any help. The PS
board has spike filtering on the incoming
120v from the wall plug, but that doesn't matter
because it delivers its results DIRECTLY to the
rest of your set, and the same filtering does not exist
at the tail end of the PS board, only at
the nose/incoming end.

If you get a new PS board, there will be a new set of
high precision voltages going downline to the rest of
your set from it. The original voltages are what the
set was set up on originally, they were sent downline
from the original power supply bd to the rest of the
circuitry, where everything was set up according to
them. Voltage regulation is generic, and only has to
wind up being within certain parameters, which means a
great deal of difference may be there among the
voltages, between the old board and the new board.

As such, I do not recommend getting a new board from
Pio for this purpose on the x10 models of Pioneer
Elite, like this one, and some of the x20 models, which
used the same PS board. I instead recommend
having the original PS board resoldered by someone who
knows the ins and outs of how to do so without creating
solder bridges in the super small connections – which
are all over that board, and in massive quantities. It
is not a job for the faint of heart, nor the
inexperienced or ill-equipped. I am the only service
repair tech I know of who is doing what needs to be
done with this board, tho some DIYers claim to have
done so as well. Others have found the board they
resoldered has gone out later, when they didn’t do it
to the level at which I do it. Boards I resolder don’t
go bad weeks, months or years later, like the original
Pio board has done. And like those resoldered by many
DIYers have done. When I resolder that board, I bring
it to the level the other boards in there are already
at - continuous non-problematic use from then on.
There are many boards in there, yet THIS one is the
only one with the problems. This was due to an
inadequate solder flow job way back when the unit was
originally produced. I cure that problem permanently.

DIYers can do it too, as long as they have the
comprehensiveness, dedication, persistence and patience
it takes to do it to the level at which it needs to be
done. Not everybody has that.

If you would like me to do the resoldering op on your
board, contact me directly and I'll send you the proper
info on how, where to send it to, and how much it
costs. Hint - it costs less than getting a new board
from Pioneer and having a local Pioneer authorized
facility install it for you.

Vizio SV47XVT 47inch Screen flickers and makes popping sound through speakers what do I need to replace.


This is a power supply and/or possibly inverter(s) board bad capacitors. Since the audio is affected it could be both. Be aware that attempting to repair it yourself could cause irreparable damage to your TV.

It coming on and after a couple of seconds cut off


Without a brand AND model number or a better description of the problem, any suggestions would be nothing more than a guess.

Unless you are prepared to repair the TV yourself, professionally performed repair, even simplest ones, will probably exceed the cost of a new LCD replacement set.

Due to X-ray and other safety concerns (equipment and/or people), CRT TVs constantly check the voltages and signals required to make a CRT work. A few seconds grace is allowed during start up but after that, any excessive high voltage (real or imagined) or loss of beam deflection circuits will cause the TV to turn off.

Please do the following:
1. Move the TV to a quiet and preferable totally dark room.
Wait until night if necessary.

2. Stand within an inch or closer to the TV screen.

3. Turn on the TV and look and listen for the following:

a. Whoosh sound and/or head hair attracted toward TV screen
Yes. High voltage activated and charged CRT screen.
No. High voltage failed to activate.

b. Hissing or normal sounds from the speaker(s) while set is on.
Low voltage circuits probably okay. Defective low voltage regulator can cause high voltage to exceed limits.

c. Entire screen briefly lit up or single bright spot at center of TV screen

High voltage worked for a moment then the TV shut off due to over voltage or current problems.

d. Brief bright line from top to bottom or single bright dot on TV screen

horizontal deflection circuits bad
vertical deflection circuits ok
TV shut off due to bad deflection/sweep circuit

e. Brief bright line from left to right on TV screen

horizontal deflection circuits bad
vertical deflection circuits ok
TV shut off due to bad deflection/sweep circuit

It would be helpful for you to perform the above "up close and personal turn the TV on test" and report what happened.

Blinking screen off


First, restart your iPad.
If the blinking continues you will have to take it to an iPhone/iPad specialty repair shop because the problem is it has probably been slightly damaged some way and the blinking screen means that the screen has been damaged in one area

My brightness is very low. I can't see anything


This could be a faulty CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Pink screen


Not a motherboard issue. If the screen looks pink it means the backlight tube inside the screen ain't reaching full brightness (the tube has gone bad). If it flickers? Well... remember them good old florescent tubes and what happened when they go bad? Same thing.

You have a bad tube in your screen and ... hence, a defective screen.
