Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Pioneer elite rear projection - unit crashes frequently, making a popping sound, gets yellow/black striped screen with inward arcing edges. Have to manually turn off unit, wait a while, usually, then manually turn back on. It may then function normally for a few minutes, or a day or two, before crashing again. What's the likely cause. Thanks in advance for any thoughts on what needs to be done and probable cost.

Try to turn off the TV for 2-3 hours first, unplug the power cable. If that didn't work, there's a problem with its internal power supply chip. You may need to double check the circuit board of the TV to see any burned components. If you can't open the casing of the tv, just contact any pro tv technician to do the component replacement.

You may need the power supply board resoldered as I had the same problem. The guy listed below can do it for you as I shipped mine from Illinois to him in California... Piece of cake getting the board out of the back and it's not too fraigile... Just pack in bubble wrap and it will be fine. My TV is now working great.

Hi Sandy, the problem with your TV is called "convergence". It can be a problem with the convergence board or more likely in this model in the power supply or deflection circuits. Unfortunately, troubleshooting by a technician is required.

Elite pro 610-hd, shuts off after only about 10-15min of play, light snap and done.


sounds like you have in intermittent short at one of the picture tubes. Probably a small hole in the bell housing of one of the picture tubes that arcs to ground once the high voltage reaches a certain level, then arcs to ground & shuts the TV off. Not cheap to repair. Probably will cost about $500

Pioneer elite tv turns off from a pop sound and manual says-will


It is most likely the power supply. Do not try to fix this yourself. There are LETHAL voltages inside such a TV, which can persist for WEEKS after it has been turned off.

Pioneer Elite Pro 620 HD TV on several occasions the screen has gone black but sound continues and the power green libht remains on. After shutting down for 10-15 minutes picture comes back.


Pioneer Elite Pro rear projection 620HD - Picture is still there but brightness and "white" have faded over years allowing for mediocre viewing when room is dark only. During the daylight picture is visible if viewed straight on and within 15 feet from set. Any suggestions?

The loud "pop" sounds like high voltage arcing coming from one of the CRT's.....you may have to pull each CRT out and put silicon sealant on the anode connectors to prevent the arcing.(one of the CRT's may be arcing internally also and the only cure is to replace that CRT) If you let the arcing continue,it will short out the horizontal output transistor sooner or later.......

you have high voltage arcing taking place ,poss tubes or flyback,splitter assy,focus block, you must try to pin point where or by what the arcing is taking place,safety first. unplug the unit and inspect for black burn spots on or near metal parts.
