may need to tell the laptop in the screen resolution settings to display the image on the tv instead of the laptop. Right click on the empty desktop of the laptop and go to either propertie or screen resolution and then make sure that the computer can see that the tv is hooked up and that the image is showing on the tv instead of the laptop. You may also need to change the mode on the tv to vga.

This model and others close to it have all sorts of soldering problems on the power board----fixed a lot of them by removal of power board and aside from fuses solder the ENTIRE board--every connection---bad connections develop with age and heat.

The right direction is right to the service center! you have a failing transistor that could catch fire.

the problem with pioneer projection tvs is that when they made the boards they never used enough solder for the circuits and you get cracks in the runs. thats why heat and cold will effect it. I had the same problem and I took out the board and resoldered every track I could and it works good now but my remote wont work if anyone has any info or prints to this tv please post on here

The problem is with the convergence IC's and repairing it would cost you up to $300.

If you would like to make this DIY project, you'll need some electronic experience, basic tools, and voltmeter, time and some good soldering skills. The repair manual should also be something you have.

If the TV is more than 5 - 7 years old, then
I would suggest you to get another one if you are not on a tight budget.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi, this is a fairly common problem, what has happened is your Color & Convergence section is faulty usually fixable by replace both convergence ICs.

but First you MUST obtain a Service Manual, this will show you what to do and how to set it all up.


The above link is for your service manual.

Sorry it a lost cause these DLP tvs are no longer in productions.If even it still in productions,the tvs picture screens panels are 90% important to the tvs and most of the cost of the tvs.The only place u can buy a tvs picture screens panels are the tvs industries themselves.They'll sell it to u,but they'll charges u the same prices as a new tvs.The tvs Techs.policies are tvs that have bad picture screens panels or a broken picture screens panels are those tvs are now,only can be used as salvages tvs for it tvs electronic boards for spare parts,that it.The tvs now are not worth as a whole tvs anymore.

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

YOU need to have the original Pioneer remote to do this--I do not understand if someone fixed and you had the remote why he did not adjust it?

With the Pioneer remote you go into the customer menu and adjust convergence--most also have a TECH menu for this but you still need the remote and a code to get into this--REMOTES FOR THESE SETS ARE HARD TO FIND AND EXPENSIVE.

Let me know if you have questions--I am here to help.

If brightness is falling off, then it might be time to replace the projector lamps.
