My Pioneer SD-T50W1 rear projection TV (1996 model)the video does not come on for a few moments when turned on. audio is heard immediately. Video screen shows a blank white screen for about two minutes and then comes on by itself.This only happens the first time it is turned on each day, after being off through the night.Any suggestions?

Re: Picture on my rear projection TV
Your set will one day soon not come on at all. theres several capacitors on the PIP board if your set has PIP or the capacitors in the power supply. A good tech should know where to check as this set some say is hard to work on but i quess its like anything you work on for a bit gets easyer. Call an authorized repair center for pioneer. Good Luck

It is likely that the CRT's (picture tubes or bulbs) are weak. It is a major job to change and all three should be changed to make the picture like new. However, it is not costwise to repair this old of a TV even if you can get the tubes. I estimate the cost of each tube is at least $200 each. I would call Pioneer and give them your model number and see if they are available. Only a trained technician should change the tubes because it requires a lot of time and setting up of the tubes and other things.
