Yes, it's the ole' Pioneer SD-532 hd5 that had the popping/flashing/turning off issue.

The power supply was recently resoldered, and it worked great! On day 10, I turned it off one night as normal, came back the next night and wouldn't turn on, at all.

Any ideas as to why? Is it still the power supply or some other issue? I'm pretty much giving up on this thing, but I'm always curious as to what happened. And if it's a relatively easy/inexpensive fix I will.

Thanks for reading.

I had Bob resoldered my power supply almost 4 years ago. I noticed as of late that it was starting to dim a bit but since I replaced it with 55" "dumb" LED set it's a moot point. As much as folks like the displays on these they are rather limited in today's digital world because they are 1080i. So either I need to find it a good home or it goes to the recyclers.

I am setting here watching my SD-533 Pioneer......

That still sounds like the power supply to me.

Same with a computer, if you get nothing first place to start is the power supply.

Especially since it was just redone.

Bob is a great guy and very helpful but nobody is perfect.

Have him recheck it.


I have a HDFury hooked to mine and can watch any DIGITAL source I like.


Folks are having problems seeing difference between 1080p and 4k

as seen in many, many articles and recently by Consumer Reports.......

So some think you can tell the diff between 1080i vs P ....... lol

I have the HDFury too but it won't do 1080p. It will only take 1080i like from my BD player which was set to 1080i rather than 1080p. I tested a Chromecast on it for kicks before I got the LED set and it dropped down to 480p which gave me 4 narrow horizontal screens. But it told me the Chromecast worked. These sets are okay if you are going to do limited things like watch TV, discs and services that come on the BD players that still support 1080i out. But things like Chromecast don't support 1080i nor does Roku etc.

And I had an another motive to replace the old set: I've had the one heating vent closed behind the set so it wouldn't get overheated in winter. With the LED the vent can be left open since it's flow won't effect it. That might just lower my heating bill a bit.

These were great sets but only have ~1000 pixels displayed horizontally. With the LED I now see the pores and blemishes on the actors. biggrin.gif

Thanks for the reply. I appreciate your thoughts.

Bob didn't resolder the power supply for me (sorry if I gave that impression). I think I'm gonna break this thing down or part it out or recycle it, so if anyone needs anything (besides a power supply :-) ), let me know.

You are telling me that several streaming services do not offer 1080i when there are thousands

and thousands of those sets out there ? What about the 720P sets ?

Sounds pretty fishy to me.


If your rear projection set is set up right you can't tell the difference tween

1080i and p........if your honest about it.

Go to the Roku site and look up 1080i support. It doesn't exist. If you have a 720p RPTV then you are probably still in business. 1080i support for devices is going away because most people have 1080p sets. No you can't tell the difference but it's about the support not the difference.

You may not be familiar with these sets but they were essentially "monitors." They only came with NTSC tuners not even ATSC. They only came with component and VGA in for HD. Pioneer catered to cinema fans and that's why I bought the set. In 2000 the set cost $3800. When it last was being sold it in stores it was as low as $1200 (refurbished). The LED set was $499 on sale and 55" compared to 53". The price was low because the other manufacturers have stopped making "dumb TVs" because adding the apps and wifi lets them add a couple hundred dollars to the price and a better margin for the stores to work with.

BTW, as early as about 10 years ago I started seeing RPTVs on the curb with a FREE sign on them. When I go to recyclers I see panels and wonder what is wrong with them. Apparently often it is just a bad capacitor or two.

Glad you got a great deal but as far as 1080i there are hundreds of thousands out there still.

There has to be a setting on the delivery hardware for 1080i. If there isn't ROKU screwed up.

I have streamed a lot through my computer to my 1080i set.

Seriously the logic fails me............1080P became mainstream in 05 or 06 ?

Somewhere around there, regardless there 1080i sets everywhere.
