Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: I turned my t.v. on w/the remote. it came on then

Hello; This problem is likely caused by bad inverter board(s). I think there are 2 on the left side on this model. If either inverter doesn't start, the microcomputer on the main board see's this and generates one "lamp error" . Once it counts 5 lamp errors, the screen will not light and led(s) will flash. These boards are about $100 each and no way to know which is bad. It can also be caused by a bad LCD panel ( cost more than the TV sold for). You can verify a lamp error problem by doing a "forced start" . The set must be unplugged. then"I think" Hold the channel up and volume down buttons on the set or VISa Versa, and plug in without releasing these buttons for several seconds. If the set makes a buzzing noise , the power supply board is bad. If the set comes on and stays or goes off this is the inverter and/ or LCD panel problem. John

Connect the cable from the dish to the LNB-IN port and switch the OVHD decoder ON. The decoder will pick up the OVHD signal automatically. The decoder must be activated using the cellphone by entering *120*6843*1# and then follow the menu.


MY OVHD DECODER Saying no secure device

My ovhd is displaying error do i fix?please help

Dstv remote not working on any blue dials? Two tv's in separate rooms, one pvr decoder. Only the red dial works on both tv's & both remotes are working & both tvs responding properly.

Is this a newly installed system? If both tv's are responding to the same remote setting (red in case), it means both tv's are set to the same channel. The tv that is connected to the decoder directly (via AV cables, I presume) is supposed to respond to if the remote is set to red. In order for the second tv to respond when the remote is set to blue, you need to tune the second tv until you find the picture of tv2 (the decoder transmits both tv1 and tv2 on the RF/coaxial output and it seems that your remote tv is tuned to tv1 instead of tv2).
