Free ($0) Pioneer Elite PRO-610HD in San Francisco Bay Area

I have replaced my beloved Pioneer Elite PRO-610HD rear projection set. I lined the inside with black duvetyn. And Bob Jones (Mr. bob) re-soldered the power board a few years ago. I still have the protective cover and remote. Set works great.

Let me know if you want the set. My phone is 925-989-9480 and I live in San Ramon, CA. I have no way of arranging transportation.

The set is free ($0)

I have an Elite Pro 510HD TV set. Some months ago she turned off while I was watching a show, the set had been on for a couple hours. She made a pop noise when the TV went off, I turned the set back on via the main power switch, and all was good. several weeks later it did it again, i tuned it back on, then five minutes later it happened again. twice more and she didn't turn on again then a few days later i tried again and she worked, but after a while off again,

when the TV pops and goes off the green power light turns to red, I must cycle the main power button.
recenlty she shut off.I tired to restart and gave up. (ie I gave up with immediatly trying to restart) that was a week ago.

That is when i looked up this AVS forum. I have read about the power supply cold joints. I may have this problem.

What would be the next course of action?

should try to resart her one more time, but make sure that if she does start, to make sure i shut her down within 15 seconds to make sure no further forced shutdowns occur. If i am able start her up, then i assume if have the power supply board re-soldered she will work ok again? Is this a good assumption. (I dont want to put time and money into a repaired power supply board, just to find some other pricey parts are blown.

Would a brief test of turning her back on for at most 15 seconds be harmful assuming she does not go into forced shut down? or should I avoid an attempt to turn her back on?

my reasoning is that the forced shut down has never occured on a cold set, although forced shutdown is now more frequent and happens in as little as five minutes of TV usage, previously she'd to be on for hours and really warmed up before the forced shutdown to occur.


OK heres the outcome of my repair. The set works great now!!!!!!!

What i did was follow the suggestion on this post, I re-soldered ALL the joints of the power supply board. litterally 100's of them. Most all of the factory solder joints had way too little solder, the solder barely covered the holes in the PCB, many where cracked and thus of poor resistance. I had to remove the silicone glue that was on several areas, and needed to use a dental pick to clean out a few holes that had silicone in them. Used a temperature controled solder iron, a brite lamp and a stereo microscope, these are tiny solder joints. My father even built up a wooden stand to hold the PCB upside down, which made life easy. spent maybe 8-10 hours on the whole project, cleaning, soldering, and removal and install. This board had evidence of prior repair as a small number of joints where clearly re-hand soldered. i suppose this was the factory repair (I am the second owner, not sure of full history) even the factory hand solder joints where suspect, thin on the solder. So every thing was redone by me, plenty of new solder added to prevent future high resistance joints and failed joints

Thanks again for all the advice!


On nearly three years since I resoldered all the connections on my power supply board as detailed above.

Now a new problem....

I turned on the TV set yesterday and got no picture, sound only. When I turned it on I was using input 1 which is for my digital receiver for over the air broadcasts, No picture, but I did get sound. I then switched to input 2 that is for my LG Brand blueray player. I got the normal LG logo screen as the blueray player booted up, and then the usual Blueray Main Menu screen from the blueray player came up and displayed fine also, but when I started to play the Blueray disc the picture went out again (sound remained on and I could listen to the program from the blueray disc). I tried this several times, each time the logo screen for the bluerey and the main menu screen for blueray displayed just fine, but as soon as the disc started to play the screen would go black, no picture. I then switched to input 3, my VCR and got no picture (but got volume), finally I tried input 4, my old X box game and again no picture, volume only.

TV worked fine a day or two before when I last had it on, and I hadn't changed anything since it worked, all four inputs have been working for my Antenna tuner, Blueray Player, VCR and X Box.

Is this symptom of loss of video, but not of audio of another failed solder joint on my TV power supply board, or something else? If so what? Can anyone advise on test(s) I should perform, specific things I should check?

Id really like to fix this tv set if practical, specially after taking the time not too long ago resoldering the board, I got to know it and like old school stuff.


PS And as a secondary question what could be different about the blueray player, why would the video signal for the Blueray boot-up "LG" logo screen and the Blueray Main Menu screen be different than the actual media playing from the disc as does seem to be the case, that is a weird one??? it is not like the TV set is cold when the blueray goes thru the initial boot up and main menu screen and the TV set has gotten warm by the time I get to playing the disc. I can toggle between the blueray players Main Menu and Play of the disc and the video works for the Main Menu screen but not for Playing the disc, (only sound). My main concern is getting the Tv working again, but I am curious about why the video only works for the blueray boot up and menu screens, that is puzzling. why are they any different than any of the other video signals that are not working now?

advice appreciated.

I also have a Pro610HD, perfect condition, free to a good home. I'm in Austin TX, in case anyone is interested. It hasn't been calibrated, or even focused in a while, but everything works great, the sound is good, the picture is excellent. No scratches or dings, and it rolls perfectly.
