Question about Pioneer PRO-99 TV

1 Answer

T.V. Convergence Yesterday the left side of my Pioneer Elite Pro-99 TV was blurry and had separated red and green around objects. I did a convergence from the main menu and it improved. The problem is that it doesn't hold. I have re-converged at least 10 times and it is ok for awhile. It probably needs to be converged from the back of the set but I do not know how to do that. The techs that Pioneer recommended want $140/half hour just to come and diagnose. Fixing the problem is extra. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

John, im sorry to have to tell you, you have the normal convergence break down, and any adjustment is not going to fix the problem. The Convergence ICs are bad in this set, and both should be replaced at once, as you do not want to pay another repair price 6 months down the road. In these sets there are no user replaceable parts, unless you know how to work on solid state printed circuit boards and understand about the TV safety factors involved. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.

There is a red shadow on the picture, mostly on the left hand side, and the picture is a bit blurry


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


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,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

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

*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

Is the tubes going out on my rear projection tv?


If the red, green, and blue colors are separated like a rainbow, then the convergence amps are going out. This set has a common problem of two electrolytic caps going bad. The caps are in the upper left-hand corner of the main board and will have a bulged top if bad.
I would not think the picture tubes are bad, especially all at once.

Pioneer projection blurry picture


Sounds like you lost the converigence. Have you tried to realign the convergence through the user menu? Try that first and see what happens.

We are having the same problem of the Pioneer Elite Pro-99 turning itself off all of a sudden. The red 'non' power button comes on as if we had turned it off remotely.
We would love to resolve this. If you can help let us know.
