Question about Pioneer PureVision PDP-5040HD 50 in. Plasma HDTV

Open Question

I have a Pioneer Pro-505PU with a PDP R04U receiver unit that handles the I/O and other functions, RF etc... I cannot seem to get a picture to the TV. It turns on but the controls on the side of the TV do not seem to work except the standby button, no inputs, nothing on the screen. Again, it turns on the screen is illuminated black. I believe the PDP "brain" unit is dead. I was going to attempt to 9pin serial port into the unit using windows XP hyperterminal. Thanks

SOURCE: Can I use media receiver PDP-R04U with PDP-436PU display?

You need the pioneer media cables hooked up to the media receiver to the plasma unit itself. each end has 2 different plugs. one has 2 thumb screws and the other is a squeezable end that clicks into place. They MUST be on before you plug in any power what so ever!!!! And yes, other information is being passed through.

My initial response is "An S-Video Cable"... but I suspect this isn't the information you are seeking.
You don't need to connect your receiver to the TV's video inputs UNLESS you want the receiver to switch between different video devices.
PS - more information on what "my receiver" is would help too, also tell us what you're trying to accomplish as the end result.
tell us about all the equipment you have, and how you would ultimately like to be able to control everything, and what inputs and outputs are on each device.

Pioneer PDP-R04U receiver blinking Help!?!


How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON?Count it carefully.These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes.From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV.This will make repair easy.

if this is only with the laptop,, you need to replace your hdmi board if its with the cable
and you receive sound and no picture replace the tcon board. if you dont have neither
picture or sound replace the power supply.
