Question about Pioneer PRO-200 60" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Is this Pioneer Elite Pro 118 worth fixing?

This tv will occationally wack out and the convergence (I'm guessing) goes out. It gets an extreme curve or concaved look to the green projection, to get that bizare 3d look. Most of the time if the set is warm, you can turn it off and back on quickly and it will be fine. Some times you have to do this a number of times, but once it comes back in, it can be fine for hours. If it does this when you turn the set on cold, it won't reset. But if you let the set on for while, and try it after it warms up, it will eventually reset itself. Does this sound like a problem worth fixing on an aging projection tv?

    Sorry for the late response. I am having a local service out to take a look. Thank you for giving me hope that my aging Pioneer Elite is not at the end of it's life cycle.

    I am having the same problem. The whole 3D affect with multi colors. We turn the TV on and off and occasionally it comes back. Can this be fixed?? OR worth fixing??

    This is funny - I had to do the exact same thing with my Pioneer Pro-118...turning the set on and off very quickly once it's warmed up to get the blue 'ghosting' to go away. But now it's stuck - I can turn it on and off as much as I want and it won't go away. I don't know whether it's worth it to get it repaired...

    I have the exact same problem that started about a month ago with my Pioneer Elite 118.

    I'm wondering if anyone has had it fixed?

    I don't want to pay service to "try" to figure it out.

    But if there is replacement part or fix that you know of, please help.

    I have a Pioneer Elite Pro-118 sans remote, and there are no techs within 50 miles of me. 
    Problem: won't turn on:
    A red led lights for the 'main Power' button,  but pushing the 'standby/on' button makes the MP button go green, but them pop off as if a circuit blew. I can then push the MP button twice to start over, but same thing happens.

    Any thoughts on which switch might be bad, and where I could order one?

You most likely have cold solder connections on the convergence IC's or on the B+ sources for the convergence. The longer you wait to have this simple repair done, the worse this will get and cost you double or maybe even triple of what it will cost now. Good Luck

T.V. Convergence

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.
