Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I have had a Pioneer Plasma TV Model PDP-4271 HD for about 4 1/2 years and now it does not work. I went to turn on the TV one day and it did not work. There was a faint picture and then the picture cut out. Now there is no screen picture, no sound....nothing. I believe this may have happened when we had a thunderstorm and thinking maybe lightning hit the breaker. I did not have my tv plugged into a surge strip. I took my tv to a Pioneer dealer and they stated that it could be the cirucuit breaker or the screen. They stated that the circuit breaker would be cheaper to fix and if it was the screen that it would be too expensive and I would be better off to get a new tv. Have you heard of this problem with this model and what are your suggestions? thank you

SOURCE: 42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture

Hi , I recently had the same problem which I was determined to fix . So I did a few weeks of research to find that it was the Y SUS board which burns out. I'm sure you realized that the TV gets hot. Personally I think this is why. circuit boards don't like heat and I've learned that the cooling fans are a joke. I replaced the board and got my picture back. I proved the fan theory because after the screen started to act up. I placed a cooling fan near the vent holes on top and the problem cleared right up,It also helps if you lower the brightness which helps out on the heat situation.I will soon be adding a fan with a temp. sensor. This shoud help if your screen has lines when you initially turn the cool TV on.then I have Some other costless solutions. Hope this helped these are great TV's and like our cars we maintain them not throw them away..................................Mr Wiseman

This is almost certainly the device that sends electricity to the the plasma in the panel after failing. Bring to your local repair shop and expect to pay 300-400 parts and 100-200 labour.

Pioneer PDP 4330HD display flashes red LED 4 times


Hello,

Just seeing if you had resolved the problem as my mum's Pioneer PDP-433HDE which she bought back 2002 has developed this same fault.

It has been a perfect TV and done very well with plenty of good use, but I have a feeling the cost of repair - even if it is possibale will be costly.

Cheers

I have a Pioneer pdp-433 plasma with a media receiver pdp-ro3e. When switching it on it gave a loud pop and blew up a fuse in the meter cupboard. Now when switching it on it gives green light on receiver...


Alas, the powerblock has gone.

Common problem on this model.

Only solution is replacement powerblock.

Pioneer used to repair this for nothing even out of warranty (they did for me), but they may not be so willing now, as your tele must be at least 6 years old. Unfortunately, it will be cheaper to buy a new TV than to pay for a contractor to fix it.

I heard a pop from my tv and then the tv didn't work


Anything is repairable as long as the screen isn't damaged.
The sound you heard is most likely was a capacitor that just went dead.
Solder in a new capacitor should fix the problem. It would most likely be on the power supply board somewhere.

You'll need the Service Manual for parts list, diagrams, and schematics. Here's one place for that:

Any other questions just ask.

PDP-4330HD


This exact same problem happened to me 2 weeks ago on my Pioneer PDP-4330HD, and it did indeed turn out to be the power supply. The good news is, you can get it fixed for free, because Pioneer actually recalled the power supply in this plasma and others a couple of years ago.

Here is a link to the announcement on their website concerning the recall. They say that they will do a free in home replacement of your power supply, but when I called the local pioneer repair place, I was told I would have to wait three weeks for an in-home appointment. I ended up taking it in myself, and it was fixed for free 2 days later. Now it works perfectly.

Here's the number to call Pioneer in case the link goes down:

1-800-421-1404
