Pioneer Projection TV

Having trouble with my television. Can get a picture if playing video or dvd. Get no picture on TV mode. Used to take a few minutes to come on but now picture will not appear. Progressively got worse. I was told by a none professional that the capacitors have dried up. Appreciate any help.

Thanks for replying. The model is SD-P5065. I am not sure of production date as of yet. I flush mounted the TV in a wall. I am working on taking it apart now.

Question

I am having the same problem. I have a SD-5053 Pioneer Projection TV. All modes work except when using the TV tuner. I saw on another site that it could be the capacitors, but not sure which ones. I am about to take the TV apart as well. Post info if you find a solution. I will do likewise.

The actual model is SD-P5053. The unit is about 11 years old.

JD2, Check for multiple cracked solder joints on the sweep/power supply board. Their should be a diagram inside that tells which board is which.


Lynell, Right behind the uhf/vhf tuner is an (i.f.) pack in a metal case. Remove it and replace two .47 mfd capacitors at 50 volts. Reinstall pack.


Post back if you have anymore questions.

FreddyG, I have access to the circuitry of the tv. Is the tuner the metal box that the coax plugs into. Would the caps be located inside of this box. If so, it may be challenging in removing this box or getting it open. Any suggestions?

FreddyG, There is not a metal box located behind the tuner case. Everything is hardwired directly to the circuit board. The only movable part is the two board unit that the vid1, vid2 A/V composite (RCA) jacks plug into. Since there is not a metal case with the two 50V/.47mF caps, what would you suggest as the next step. The main circuit board that the tuner is attached is screwed into the base of the TV frame. Your help is greatly appreciated.

FreddyG. Thanks for the input. could you tell me where to find the capacitors in my TV. I have it all apart and can't find any cracks in the solder joints. Just think that I can try replacing the capacitors. The model again is SD-P5065-K. Also I went to the pioneer site to see if I could get a repair manual on it and they say that model doesn't exist. Is there an alternative route for this info. Thanks again

www.threasurechest corp.com

FreddyG. I pulled a board on the TV I suspect That the capacitors are the right ones. There are four in a row, two 50 volt and two 35 volt. If I send a picture can you tell me if they are the ones in question? Thanks

JD2, Make that: www.treasurechestcorp.com

Before we get to far ahead of ourselves lets do one or two more checks here. Re-install that board(s), connect the cable or antenna to the tuner(i'm going to assume you have sound and you can hear the channels change),leave the back off, turn the television on. See if the filments are lit in the necks of the picture tubes(should be three orange color lights one per picture tube neck).


Post back and let me what you found.

FreddyG, I have no sound, no picture on tuner only. VCR and DVD are perfect. The picture on tuner just thumps on and off. You can't really see anything. The only way you can tell that the channel is changing is the thumping noise goes away for two seconds then continues. I will put the boards back tomorrow and check the tubes. Thanks again for sticking with me on this.

FreddyG, I have two small metal boxes but they don't appear to have any large capacitors. It looks as if one has a bunch of springs and the other is a small board
