You guys with the 60 inch 2009 builds are a lucky bunch. Skip to the 19:55 mark to find out why, if you're not aware of the reason.

So anything after November of 2008 could have a 9.5 panel?

a 60 " 9.5 panel is still not going to be close to 50" 9.5 panel , 50 and 60 " panels are driven differently

Correct, it was a known fact that towards the end of Pioneer's PDP production all displays were eventually produced at the same single manufacturing plant (instead of across 3 plants) after closure of the other 2 plants.

For a further reduction in mll, I also reduced s1, s3 and s4 (by the same amount) on all three panels. The 101fd was able to go down all the way to minimum values with no artifacts on content. The 141fd and 151fd were a bit more resistant, so i could only go down about 15 ticks without issues. Anything more than that and artifacts would manifest themselves on content.
Ok good. I would rather just change rstp than play around with anything else. Hopefully I never get to that point.

Like I said this one has a build date of February 2009
Make sure you're looking inside the back of the TV on the bottom left. I never knew until somebody told me where the build date was. I only knew of the manufacturing date on the back. Mine is March 2009 with a build date in January 2009.

That's how many hours it's been plugged into the wall on standby.

So if I understand you right when you said you look inside the back of the TV are you literally talking about the inside of the TV? Because I'm going by the sticker on the back of the TV and on the box it came in

Yes. Standing at the back look through the holes on the bottom near the left handle. There should be two stickers. I see your TV is on the wall. Can it extend out?
rcapprotti's Avatar rcapprotti 09:53 AM 08-02-2014
Yes I can pull the TV out does that sticker also have the serial number on it.because if I'm not mistaken the plasma panel itself has a sticker with the serial number and manufacturing date

Greetings,

Aside from storing in the box, are their any good uses for the speakers that the Kuro comes with? For a standard surround setup I thought they might be nice as a center channel, but in my case that doesn't work. So I'm looking for ideas / experiences in using them for something other than a paperweight.

I have a Pro-111FD with Mythos SSA-50, HSU VTF-1 MK2, BDP-23FD and Elite SC-77. Thanks!

Yeah one sticker has the module number and the other has the serial number and build date. Which is different from the manufacturing date.

The speakers sound very good to me. I use them when i watch broadcast TV. Do you not like the sound? They're still the best television speakers. Every other manufacturer puts tiny speakers on the back or bottom. Besides recently Sony who did similar to Pioneer and put it on the side of their 4K TV's.

saprano I agree with you I think the speakers sounds very good. Much better than the typical speakers you get with a TV today

The 60" 2009 builds with 9.5G glass seems to only apply to the 141's. I don't think the 151 is included in that according to what Robert said. So my 2009 build 151 doesn't mean anything i don't think.

D-nice was right about the quality control being poor in the month of April because my 6020 had all kinds of issues. Tomorrow I must go TV shopping I thought about getting a used 5020 but I really don't feel like driving a couple hours to go to Jacksonville and my luck when I got there the TV wouldn't be as nice as advertised and would probably have 20,000 hours on it. I think I'll buy a Visio M-series

Are the i1 Display Colorimeters designed to be used with a plasma? Everything i've read about them states nothing about using them with a plasma, only LCD's.

I posted last week about a very loud buzzing from my pro-111fd and got around to taking it off the wall and removing the rear panel. Much to my surprise the power supply was not the source, rather it was the x drive, particularly several capacitors were swollen and when pressed the buzzing stopped. All is good right? well I decided to tighten several of the screws holding the x board in place to see if this would help, and accidentally touched the screw driver to the I/O switch chassis briefly while tightening a screw on the x board, causing it to spark and send the TV into a blinking light sequence (specifically 2 red blinks then pause), now the display isn't working. I would assume I blew a fuse, however I can't seem to find anything on replacing fuses. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to look for to fix this? Or could the problem be more serious?

Yes. Just make sure the meter doesnt make contact with the screen, as the heat coming from the screen will affect readings. You have to place the meter about 1 foot away from the screen.

I just moved and lost the brackets and screws that hold the speakers to my 9G Kuro Elite. Anyone know where I can buy replacement parts??

Unfortunately I believe the only place you're going to find these are at Pioneer.the part # sxg1166 1167 1168 1169 and they are $38 apiece to me that's a little bit pricey and the screw kit is sba1292 $4.75

Geez. Expensive loss. The wife doesn't want me going back to the bookshelves, bass, etc.

Looks like a soundbar might be the only option.

You know that is a ridiculous price $38.00 for one now if it was $38.00 a pair that would be different. You're looking at over $160 just for the brackets and screws you can buy the whole speaker set from Pioneer for $266

Ok good because I'm really interested in purchasing one and calibrating the TV myself. Any particular models that you recommend? I was looking at the X-Rite EODIS3 i1Display Pro on amazon for $215. I'm just unsure if I would end up actually needing all of the features so the ColorMunki model might possibly be a better choice for $160? My only concern is the ability either device to actually do a really good calibration, I want to really be satisfied with the picture afterwards.

Kinda disappointing. Super expensive TV and even more expensive replacement parts. It's just a bracket and screws that a hardware store could probably provide.

Kuro newbie here. I'm seeing a lot of used 6020s for sale at about half the price of a used 151/141/600M. How steep is the drop-off in quality? I know the 6020 isn't an Elite and likely doesn't have more advanced ISF/calibration settings, but I'm wondering if it's significant enough to warrant the additional expense. Anyone with info to share? Thanks in advance.
jmmesch's Avatar jmmesch 05:42 PM 08-04-2014
Get the 6020 and get the Elite board (info in this or the 9G thread) then you'll have a 151 w/o the Elite badge.
RYANtheTIGER's Avatar RYANtheTIGER 05:53 PM 08-04-2014
Ok guys ... Need your help bad. Moved the other day and now my Kuro won't turn back on. It was working fine before the move but not now. I've made sure it's plugged into the wall, tried multiple outlets, etc

Is there a fuse switch/button? Something that could cause this after being unplugged?
