I ended up buying a new board from Pioneer. They shipped the latest revision of the board directly from Japan and it only took 2 days. The installation was easy and the KRP is alive once again!


BTW, my tweaked 500M compares well with my new LG OLED, except maybe in overall light output, size (50 vs 55), and pop. So for me, the cost of the new power supply was definitely worth it.

It's amazing that you can still get parts in the U.S.

Yes, as long as one is willing to pay a premium for them, probably due to the direct Japan sourcing. For the 500M, it is worth it.

I'm replacing a Pro150 with the 600M. Other than improved black levels and better controls for adjusting the picture, are there other less obvious picture improvements: same or lower panel noise, same or different glass, same or newer anti glare coating etc.?

How did you determine it was the power supply? I have a 600M that recently just stopped working. The picture suddenly went out and now it won't power up. I'm suspecting the power supply has failed as well.

The red LED would blink 2 times, pause, and repeat. That is the code for the PS. If your LED does not light at all, that could be the PS as well.
