Your APC is fine. I think a bad power supply is a relatively cheap and easy fix.

Thanks HT and 1forsnow:

Called up the nearest service center. They said it will cost about $500 (parts and labor) to fix as the set is about 3 months out of the 2 year warranty. Seems rather steep but i'm rather desparate to have it fixed quickly. RIght now, i;m using my old Sony RPTV and its very yucky(all things red)!

I'm not sure if this was mentioned but if you purchased your display with a credit card it may have extended your warranty by one year. Check with your credit card company.

I've has anti-glare peel on my old screen after wiping it with tap water. Since then, I've found distilled water is the answer for the screen and bezel. If that doesn't work, then the rag is dirty with grease.

The service center called again today and said the price went up to $900 Is it worth it? Are there any new TV's out there that have the KURO's image quality or come even close to it?

is this panel on a stand or mounted to the wall? 900 bucks seems steep for sure!
IMO since its currently dead, i would at least TRY to fix it before forking out money for a new panel. if you download the service manual, there is a detailed flowchart that walks you through failures of this sort. if it is a power supply, it seems relatively easy to replace yourself and im sure mr google can find you a cheaper power supply.

and i also agree that the vt30 is a great panel if you need to go that route...

Why not buy the part and install it yourself?

The plasma is mounted on the wall. The dealer said the price is high because the power supply parts are rare to find? Not sure if Pioneer design a custom power supply for the KURO or its just a stock unit you get from anyone. I believe the panel is fine and that the power supply section is dead accroding to the error codes .... red power light blinking twice repeatedly.

Not sure about the difficulty involved in this but will look into it. Ebay seems to have no power modules on hand for sale. Guess have to go direct to Pioneer.

The AXY1201 power supplies are easy to find, but direct from Pioneer at $401.95 they are pricy.

http://parts.pioneerelectronics.com/...uctNum=AXY1201

However, through many TV parts suppliers, they can be found for under $150.

John:

Thanks for the links...

1) Do you know if these are these genuine pioneer parts?
2) Does the 151 only have 1 power PCB (AXY1201) and not two or more? In short, any secondary power boards? The screenshot in the service manual seems to show a section of 2 boards they call "POWER SUPPLY UNIT" The one on the right is the AXY1201(i believe) but what of the one on the left?

Thanks again!

David,

I honestly don't think you can get the performance of a 151 out of any a 65VT30 and your money is better spent on getting your 151 working again.

The sticky issue is to try to do it yourself for a $150 part or pay someone else to do it for $900 (which probably contains the same $150 part).

A good starting point is to download the manual and see if there are any difficult instructions where you get totally lost. I downloaded an English manual for my 6070 and presume that one for the 151 is also available. I wouldn't want to deal with bad translations using a software translator.

I agree Jim ... please see my post above and chime in, if you can

Yes they are genuine Pioneer parts. You need both boards which make it a unit.

What is the part number of the 2nd board on the left? I verified the AXY1201 is the one on the right.

You may be incorrect. Here it seems the part # applies to both pieces.

Merry Christmas, and Happy Kwanza, or all other holidays any AVR's celebrate.

To all, Happy New Year 2012!

dmusoke you made a wise choice on fixing your TV. Other people would of gave up and bought something else. Theres no other TV that has the look of the kuro. Not even the sharp elite that everyone likes to rave about. Depth is the key word here.

I was watching pirates of the caribbean 2 and 3 last night and im surprised after 2 years of owning this TV i still say "damn."

The whole movie is reference but the scenes i remember standing out to me in 2 with that sense of depth to the picture was chapter 1, chapter 2 for black level and shawdow detail, and chapter 7 at 32:50 when they're hanging from that ball shape thing. Look at the close up's of the actors faces. It looks 3D and feels like your in there with them. Simply amazing.

Maby Panasonic 2012 PDP's finally matches. Hopefully. What say you D-nice?

I was watching A Christmas Carol last night. The Alastair Sim 1951 version, on Blu-ray of course. The definitive Christmas classic.
The sharp detail, contrast, the watery deep blacks! Awesome!


Merry Christmas everyone!

What you all talking about!

My wife and older, adult daughter are wathing the BD of Bridemaids in 1080p DTS-HD Master right now on on our 151, laughing their heads off!

Later, I'll watch what I want!
post #26906 of 30260
I know it's been said here already but...............

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!

Mod question: out of curiosity why is this thread not stickied while the Official 9G Non-Elite Kuro thread is?

TIA!

Is it because they don't like us as we are just snobs? LOL!

New power supply arrives tomorrow. Can't wait ... I have refused to watch my favorite HD programs at all on my old RPTV which loves to show all things red and is out of focus Its been a painful experience indeed.

I'll have a friendly neighbor help me unmount the plasma from the wall and hopefully changing the power supply will be a cinch.
