20 Most Recent Pioneer SD-533HD5 53" Rear Projection HDTV Questions & Answers

ManualsLib has the manual for the SD-533HD5 here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/384249/Pioneer-Sd-643hd5.html . (The manual covers two models.) Once you modify the picture parameters (starting from STD, REF THEATER, GAME), these are stored as the User mode. If you press Menu when done changing the parameters, that input should maintain the User settings for the last setting until you change the Picture type. If you modified the parameters for STD and then return to that input and change the Picture to GAME, any modifications to the GAME picture parameters will become the new User Mode. See page 50 of the manual for the details: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/384249/Pioneer-Sd-643hd5.html?page=50#manual .

I hope this helps.

Unplug the TV for maybe 10 minutes, then turn it on. Sometimes these units simply need to recycle. If that doesn't work, you've likely got serious problems.

Configuration Problems

Improperly configuring TV setting can cause problems. Verify the TV settings are set correctly. First, brightness and contrast should not be set to high or to low because this can cause poor picture images. Second, adjust the color on the TV when the picture displays colors poorly. Third, if you are having sound issues then check to make sure the volume is not muted or turn down all the way.

On this model the power board will need to be completely resoldered, that is your problem.

Its proably time to replace the Convergence ICs, if they have never been replaced also look for poor solder connections on boards.

a 240 ac voltage appliance will run happily on 220 volts but ther is obviously a fault as the green spark was possibly a fuse blowing
ie main fuse as power is not reaching the tv

It is possible it is reception but try routing your signal with a box via the same type of jacks on back the x-box or a DVD would use--those bypass the tuner circuitry in the set--that way you will know if the set or not.

It sounds like a microprocessor that has latched up. Try pulling the AC plug and letting it rest for an hour or two, the problem may cure itself. The end of your message was truncated at ". . . working normally but then it shut . . ." Try posting the missing portion as a comment to your original.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then yourconvergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. The power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

What you will need to do is convergence. You can get a repair kit fromTvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement parts,step by step instructions, support, etc.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from TvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement coolant,step by step instructions, support, etc.
