Question about Pioneer SD-582HD5 58" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

My SD-532HD5 turns on then goes back off...

When I turn the set on, with the remote, The set turns off right away. I then have to cycle the main power switch from off to on and it does it again. It used to shut off once in a while and I would cycle the main power switch then it would function immediately after that. Then it degraded over about 3 months until it doesn't come on anymore. I see there is several other owners with the same problem. This is indicative of a design defect. Has anyone consulted the company about this?

    My Pioneer SD-582HD5 has a similar problem. The screen will start popping and flash white. Then the screen will go off and the red button goes on. Sometimes if I unplug from the wall outlet and then replug the green light will come back on and the TV works fine for a while. It seems to be getting progressivly worse and I fear the Armageddon is soon approaching.

    Can I fix this problem myself? I live in Myrtle Beach SC and the nearest authorized dealer is over an hour away.

That is an all too common problem in that model unit and I'm sure the manufacturer knows about it vividly, but would never admit knowing...
Pull the SMPS and inspect closely for ring-cracked solder connections. Use some really good magnification. Especially solder all of the heatsink mounted components and all pins on the smps transformer even if they don't look suspicious. Test fuses F201 (6.3a) & F202 (5a) for open and replace if necessary.
Lastly ESR any caps 100uf and above. There is a particular 1000uf cap, I believe near the transformer, that is almost always in need of replacement.

Rear projection HDTV have been popular about 5 years ago. Most of them use the convergence chip STK-392 110 ( 11 watts) , it is recommended by pioneer to replace these chips with a newer chip STK 392 180 ( 18 watts) more expensive. These chips STK 392 110 goes bad sooner or later. If you replace them, replace both of them . THey are mounted on BIG heatsink . Look for them at the big heatsink . They have 18 pins . It is not too bad to desolder them and remove them. When these chips goes bad, they cause a few fuses to blow up.
Please check all fuses before plug in.

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.

Can't turn on

When you turn the MAIN off you are killing all power to the set---Some advice---If you Google the model number of this set with the word problem after it you should find what I have seen a lot in these sets: they develop bad solder connections on the power supply printed circuit board---usually the board is about 18 inches tall and 12 inches wide--A number of sites online offer to have you ship them the board and they will resolder it for you.
I have repaired about 12 of these with this problem in the last 2 years---The board has to be removed(there are quite a few plugs that need to be labeled and removed and lots of screws that secure the board in place.)

Maybe not a job for a do it yourself person but the soldering (if it is your problem) will take about 45 minutes(including removal and installing board back).

Like most modern sets this set uses lead free solder and it is soldered(the boards) in a wave or one step process---over time from heat and expansion some connections may crack or even break loose----I would look at the POWER SUPPLY board(follow the power cord as it goes right to it)

I own a pioneer projection monitor model SD-532HD5. It has been flickering on and off where it goes from its crisp color to a hazy type picture. Yesterday, it flickered and the picture went away...

This TV is known for bad solder joints on the Power board. Call a good TV Tech and have him resolder the Power board. It is on the right hand side of the TV looking from the back.

SD-532HD5 TV shuts off when watching

Its is a cold solder joint on the board. The board is the one located at the bottom right of the tv when looking at the rear. Mine did the same thing. After refreshing mose of the large solder pints on the board, it stopped. Hope this helps!

Pioneer SD-532HD5 Projection Screen TV won't turn back on.

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

Possesed awesome tv

the clicking noise is probably just the relay. I gyess it makes the same noise if ou turn it off manually with the remote? Does your TV have a sleep timer function? Check to see if this is enabled. You might also check the batteries. If they are old, or the battery compartment is dirty (leaking barteries etc) you might get strange behaviour. My remote lives a life of it's own, changes channels etc if the batteries are weak.
