I've worked on and repaired a lot of Pioneer sets over the years and it is extremely uncommon for a board to fail due to overheating unless proper airspace was not allowed. Airspace specifications are located within your product manual. I will say though that this particular model # and other pioneer sets have multiple fans built in to circulate the air generated by air space specifications

ANY TV WILL FAIL IF PROPER COOLING IS NOT PRESENT. A GOOD RULE OF THUMB IS AT LEAST 2 INCHES OF CLEARANCE AROUND THE ENTIRE SET. ANYTHING LESS, I WOULD RECOMMEND ADDITIONAL COOLING SOLUTIONS.

What is the solution for overtemp of pioneer htz 787 dvd home theater?


There can be many causes of overheating, not eh least of which would be a malfunction of the device electronics. But first, check these things to ensure best operation:

1. DO NOT install in an enclosed AV cabinet. While these thing look nice and pretty, they do not allow proper air flow to these higher-powered devices and can cause them to run hot.

2. Verify that the rear cooling fan(s) are operational. If the heat cannot be removed from the case, it only stands to reason that the unit may overheat. Replace fans that are non-operational.

3. Clean, clean, clean. Dirt and dust are the enemy of electronics. Many home theater systems are low-to-the floor- cabinets that the LCD TV sits on, and this places the electronics near to the floor where the most dust and dirt are kicked up. This gets into the electronics and clings to the components via static charges. This insulates the components and causes heat buildup. Use a can of compressed air (available at most stores that sell electronics), and blow out the air passages. If the cabinet is extremely dirty, and you fell capable, you can unplug the unit, open the cover, and blow out the dirt that way. Use only electronics cleaner canned dust remover, as it is non-conductive and relatively static free. Using a home air compressor can cause moisture to get on the boards and can create large static charges that can damage components.

Esab plasma cutter fault light comes on as soon as it is turned on


The cable or cutting head may be damaged. The power connections may be loose, an internal circuit breaker may have failed. If the cooling fan does not come on, check the wiring in the cabinet for damaged wires. Disconnect fan wires- noting where each connected and check to see if the fan burned out- if it did, replace the fan and it chould begin to work correctly. If the fan checks out okay- it will have 2 discrete sets of windings-one for the fan, the other to provide control voltage.Check that board with the rectifiers as a rectifier may have failed or there may be a fuse on the board.

If it were mine, I would check everything under the cabinet after it has been thoroughly blown clean.

My a/v receiver gets really hot after a couple hours of use. It is in a closed wooden cabinet. Is this a problem? If so, how can I fix it?


You are going to make the system overheat and possibly fail with excessive heat. If it's possible, at least run with the doors to your cabinet open and/or, maybe you could cut a hole in the back of the cabinet for ventilation either just by making a hole(s) and/or installing a fan. The circuit boards will afil over time, with age but, you will greatly age your unit with excessive heat.

(1)cpu fan error (2)chassis intruded (3)fatal error.....system halted


The reason for this error is Overheat! Please replace the CPU Fan with a new one and add additional Fan for the CPU Cabinet in order to cool the CPU. Then, reset the BIOS to default value by pressing the F2 Key or Delete Key at the Startup and select Load Optmized Defaults or Load Fail Safe Defaults option. This should resolve the issue.

Laptop powers on but screen does not. i have tested the screen its ok. i have tested the ram its ok. the mb has intergraded graphic is it the mb


I would try moving the screen to another position to see if the inverter cable running from the motherboard to the LCD might be bad. Sometimes the inverter cable wires will break with the opening and closing of the screen. I would also try plugging in an external monitor and see if it works when you turn it on. If it will produce an image with an external monitor then most likely (not 100%) the on board video chip is okay. If it does not produce an image then most likely it is the on board video chip that has failed. This is a common problem with many laptops as they do not cool the on board video chip properly causing it to overheat and burn out.The only way to resolve the issue with the on board video chip being burned out is to replace the motherboard.

My tv keeps shutting off when I hit the power button the tv only stays powered up for about 15 seconds


HI, this may be as simple as a failed cooling fan or, the power board may be experiencing some issues with vital component breakdown as well. i recommend, if possible, to check the operational value of the cooling fans that are located inside the chassis near the power sector. test the value of the fan motor to confirm proper current flow. if no voltage is supplied, this will confirm a damaged power sector(board). if the voltage is present and the motor is not rotating, this will confirm a burned out cooling fan.

Replace the failed device.

**Most common issue here will be a weak or damaged power sector.
