Pioneer SD-533HD5 with No Yellow

I can't seem to get this thing adjusted right. All the guns appear to be working fine (R,B,G). Red and green appear to be dominate. Where yellow should be it appears more as white and blue on the good ole flag appears to look like levis demin instead of royal blue.

I have DVE with the filters - on the test where you should see the six dark boxes with the blue filter it didn't appear right. I'll use x's and attempt to reproduce it for ya.

What I should have seen:

x x x
x x x

What I saw:
xxxxxx
xxxxxx

Thanks in advance. Ernie

    OK... the text alignment on my comment didn't work because of word wrap. However it did remind me of the problem I experienced while aligning converigence. I see and can align the red. Then I have to push the remote enter three times - it's like there is a step missing or the blue or green alignment isn't displaying. Funny, I titled my problem as no yellow, but the converigence cross and menu is where all the yellow is. Yellow, red and green in the menus.

    Dark blue appears black and yellow appears as white.

    Here is a pic from a test CD so you can compare colors. The one is from the Pioneer and the other from a Toshiba 30" CRT.

    Sorry Nittin, but it was my understanding that guns were the CRT's.doesn't seem to be a yellow one... Red, Blue and Green. I think I'll see what others say first. I would like to try and replace the part or make the adjustments myself. If I can work on computers, printer, copiers and phone switches I think I might have a chance here. Thanks anyway.

    You know I just parked this big ****** in the back room and started watching the 42" plasma I fix.... good thing see all these guys out there working with YELLOW guns... Geeze... I think I'll get a clear back lit laptop screen, cover it with a blue transparency and lay it over the yellow guy - no, that would give me washed out green... I know, I'll choke it until the it's liquid flow is brought down to a minimum, that should cause it to turn blue - that's it...

    Thanks

Have you replaced any ICs on this TV before attempting the alignment?

Posted on Aug 13, 2008

  • Jaime Hernandez Aug 13, 2008

    I would suggest to turn the screen control voltage down just a bit and see if that helps. Do not touch the other controls.

    The screen controls should be located at the front of the TV just behind the speaker grill.

Pioneer SD 533HD5 has pink screen


Sounds like the gun is trying to fire up but has internal problems. You may want to see if you want to tackle the job of changing it out. Check with MCM Electronics to see cost of a new gun. 1-800-543-4330 or www.mcmelectronics.com

Pioneer sd-533hd5, STKs changed, getting blue screen but not pict


Did you have double image before changing the stk's ? If not then there was no need to change them.. Pioneers are known for bad solder connections especially in the power supply section.. suggest checking that when you changed the stk's that there are no solder bridges between the pins of either stk ICs

I would guess that your problem is similiar to mine but mine is with the color red. The CRT went out which is a 400 dollar part and who knows how hard to fix.
