Pioneer Plasma missing red

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My apologies if this is in the wrong section, I did not notice a repair section.

I have a pioneer pdp-5016hd it was having an issue with the red color realm. It would basically no display the whole color spectrum correctly and some shades would show in a bright red orange color. This went on for about 4 months and no it is not displaying red at all anymore.

I am a HT installer so I am sure it is something internal and not a connection issue. It does this one all possible inputs.

Any idea on what it would likely be?? X or Y drive??

I am in chicagoland if anyone knows of a honest tech shop

HDMI or component connection?

Thanks for the reply Dnice

It appears to be on all inputs.

When it initially started to fail it was not showing certain gradients of red correctly across all inputs but was worse on SD connections. The HD's were bareable to watch.

Now anything that should be red shows as black.

I tested this on HDMI and component

Thanks again

Checked into this a bit more and was asked a couple of questions by a buddy who used to work on TV's but he is not sure on the pioneers.

He asked if it showed Red correctly anywhere in the menu and it does show all colors including red correctly in the menu where it is supposed to.

So the panel is capable of working correctly still just need to identify which board is likely at fault.

Any help is appreciated.
