Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

Pioneer pdp-5050sx will not power up. Turn it on, but screen remains dark gray, with a light gray message box with "Plasma warming up, please wait". Wait and wait, but it never powers up. The only way to get it to power up is to unplug it for 15 plus minutes. Even then, when I plug it back in, it does not always power right up, but sometimes takes a couple of minutes. Is there an embedded software update for this TV?

SOURCE: PLASMA DISPLAY STARTING UP. PLEASE WAIT

Un plug the power to the Plasma Screen and also to the Media Receiver for ten minutes. Disconnect the off the air antennas both A and B. After ten minutes plug in the plasma screen then the media receiver and turn on wi the remote control. You should now be back in operation. I was.
Also It may not be a bad digital tuner. The TV Guide feature is active even when the zip code is set to all 0s so if you have an over the air antenna attached the TV will look for the TV Guide info and if it can not find it because of a weak signal or the chanel it is tuned to does not carry that information the TV thinks that tuner does not work which triggers the 12 flashes. Also on power up the gray box with the waring message "Plasma Display Starting Up, Please Wait" appears and the screen is blank.

Pioneer PDP-6020 FD, Menu items grayed, no HMG after firmware upd


I have the same issue - Pioneer told me the local repair shop could reset the firmware, I paid the $90 service call and they could not fix anything. For a 18 month old $5000 TV they now want me to replace the digital board for around $500.

Plasma Display Starting Up


Could be heat build up in the Plasma display unit. Make sure it has the correct space around it for proper ventilation. Also count the number of blinks on the power indicator it is a code for the reason the unit shut down. On the Pioneer PDP-5060HD I have I was getting 12 blinks on the indicator which indicated a tuner issue. Check your instruction book for info on the over heating problem if it continues. You may have a fan out.
