I JUST BOUGHT THIS TV FROM THIS GENTLEMEN AND THIS IS WHAT HE SAID IT DOES.CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT IT COULD POSSIBLE BE WRONG WITH IT AND AROUND HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST TO FIX. I PURSHASED THIS PIONEER PDP-4300 PLASMA DURING THE TIME FLAT PANELS WERE INCREDIBLY EXPENSIVE. SHORTLY AFTER THE YEAR WARRANTY EXPIRED, THE TELEVISION DID AS WELL. THE PROBLEM IS THAT IT COMES ON FOR A BRIEF SECOND THEN TURNS OFF. THE LITTLE LED POWER LIGHT IN THE LOWER LEFT OF THE PANEL WILL TURN FROM GREEN TO RED AND FLASH IN SEQUENCES OF SIX OR SEVEN. EVERY ONCE IN A GREAT WHILE IT WILL STAY ON FOR ABOUT AN HOUR THEN TURN OFF. I PUT IT IN STORAGE WITH THE IDEA OF HAVING IT REPAIRED. I NEVER HAD IT REPAIRED. OTHER THAN THE MECHANICAL/ELECTRICAL DEFECT, THE UNIT IS IN NEARLY PERFECT PHYSICAL SHAPE. WE HARDLY USED IT WHEN IT WAS WORKING. THERE IS NO BURN-IN ON THE SCREEN, SCRATCHES, ETC.
I have PDP-4300 myself and it was dead. This version is prone to power supply failure. Pioneer has a recall on this power supply free of charge. Call Pioneer customer support tell them your model number and they will send a repair man to replace the bad supply. Hope this helps. Frank [email protected]
Plasma tv's are known for having overheating problems. Most of these problems occur in the main power supply. Most technicians only replace these boards due to manufacturers policy. If you are lucky, you may find a local technician that can troubleshoot to the component level. This will save you an huge amount of money.The board could cost as much as $800 dollars. Scrivitron
