Had the repair guy come back out. All he did was a master reset. So far no shut offs and the TV guide is now working OK, but 30 min. after I turn it off the blue light is flashing. I don't think that will ever go away now. As long as the TV operates like a damn TV I guess I will have to live with it.
It sure is funny that when I first got this tv everything was OK, then started flashing every once and a while and now all the time and started turning off by itself. Sure seems to me like the problems get worse as time goes on.
My repair man said the next step is to change the main computer board, which is what I think Pioneer is trying to avoid all together. That's why they never heard of this problem before. BS!!!! They know having to fix all the tv's out in use right now would hurt them in the pocket book, so they have to ignor the problem or blow us off until the warrantys are all up.
Hey DPR1111 your not alone it's happening to alot of us. We are getting the brush off from Pioneer at least for the first year.

Oh and one more thing, don't let Pioneer tell you not to use the TVGOS. That was one of the reasons I picked this tv.
That is like a car salesman telling you that your new car has windshield wipers, but he does NOT recommend that you use them or the car may shut off. SAY WHAT!!!!!!!!!
Love the picture, but this will be the last Pioneer I will ever own. I will not stand for poor customer service.
Hey Pioneer don't piss on my back and tell me it's raining.
