KRP-500M HDMI issue

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

It's been a while since I've posted on this forum after exiting the calibration field. I had a question that I was hoping one of you might be able to shed some light on.

Yesterday, I (gently) moved my Pioneer KRP-500M, Oppo BDP-83, and Denon AVR-590 system from one room to another. I'm now not able to get the display's HDMI inputs to work as I keep getting the era message "No Input Signal." I troubleshooted the issue and incredibly, both HDMI cables that I was using had somehow gone bad in the move. I replaced the cables as well as checked my Oppo and receiver and have confirmed that they work. So, it seems that culprit is the Pioneer.

I've tried changing the sequence of how I turn the system on, using different HDMI inputs and disconnecting both the HDMI and power cables from the Pioneer as to initiate a reboot of sorts to no avail.

Have any of you experienced anything like this and if so, do you have any tips on how I may be able to get it to recognize the input?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Isn't one of the power buttons a "hard" power button for when you're first turning the set on after a long period of idling (or alternatively turning it off for moving etc..)?

You could try that. Something sounds odd though. Did you move the setup as a unit or did you move the individual pieces. For future reference, I would always unplug all cords before moving an HDTV.

The pieces were individually moved and as stated, very gently. I've also done this before with no issue whatsoever. And yes, I did try the "hard" power button. The HDMI inputs simply cannot recognize a signal all of a sudden. It's most unusual.

Does the dvi port work?

I've not checked that input, but along with the others, it's the next logical step. Still, I've never run across such a case where an HDMI input suddenly stops working for seemingly no reason. I'm determined to figure this one out!

It can happen to tv's during power spikes. You could also hook up a pc to it and use AnyDVD HD to see if it's the HDCP it's not detecting or the HDMI at all.

Also, you might want to check your receiver settings. If it was unplugged, there may have been something internal you had to set before that you forgot about.

I seriously doubt it's a permanent problem, nor that it's even the Pioneer's fault. I'm sure there's something you simply over looked - like what dlplover mentioned. It's probably something really simple, and is due to user error, it simply can't be the TV's fault ...I've dominated all of my Pioneer's and they always work afterwards.

@ dlplover - We recently had a power outage, but it didn't affect anything - at least not immediately. It only stopped working when I moved the system. In efforts to figure out what went wrong, I connected the DVD player and receiver to a different display and they worked, so I know they're not the problem. I also connected the DVD player directly with no luck.

@ Acid Snow - I really hope that you're right but thus far, I'm a bit stumped. When I get home in a couple of hours, I'm going to test the other inputs. I'll definitely keep you guys posted.

Thanks for the tips BTW.

I don't see how moving the set could break HDMI. If you're totally unable to get it to work, it's possible some connection cable or solder point inside the set got loose/separated. It doesn't sound like it should be a major repair if it comes to that.

Also, I would seriously recommend hooking up a computer to the set to test that. One of my friends had a problem with their kuro. None of the HDMI ports were working. I came over to check it out for them - it was the BR player. It was fried. They got a new player and it's been working perfectly since. I'm more inclined to doubt the DVD player or receiver than the kuro, but that's just me.

I had a lightning strike destroy the HDMI and DVI ports on my KRP-500M. The TV powered up, but would not get a signal from any of the inputs. I took apart the back panel on the TV and saw that one of the chips had a hole burned through it.

I went on ebay and found a Pioneer Main Accy Board (Part ANP2231-A) for about $35, and was able to replace the board after reviewing the service manual. I tested the TV after putting everything back together and was able to get a video signal with picture.

After getting the TV mounted back on the wall I hooked up the KRP-S04 speakers and unfortunately I don't have any sound. So I'm gonna try and replace the ANP2232-C I/O Board and see if that fixes it. I'll let y'all know what happens.
