First noticed around 2500 hours, started searching and realized it wasn't isolated to my display. Did the board swap and had the set calibrated by dave evans in hopes it would cure the red blacks. It did not change in anyway. He commented then it seemed voltage related. Before calibration I used optimum mode, now exclusively isf night. The set is on roughly 6-8 hours a day. The display has never been in need of repair, and other than the red tint it has operated flawlessly. It has always been wall mounted with plenty of room to breath. The panel has remained in the living room ambient temperature of 68-70°

Thanks. Can you provide the serial number if the panel... not your display's serial number.

Is there a good video pattern which ultimately reveals the pink/purple noise (if any)?

I was leaning towards the Sharp Elite. But not after seeing what the Kuro techs figure is a working product. Kuro must be Japanese for works for a while. Sorry a little upset with my disposable tv.

I think one of the problems is that they haven't been making displays since 2008. It's possible (and likely) they used to have people who knew a lot more about plasma than their remaining support techs. Also, this is a problem affecting a minority of owners so it's definitely not the entire product line. Pioneer makes some solid products. But obv. this is very frustrating for those affected. BTW, I thought a different tech gave someone here instruction on resetting the panel to drop black level - so it seems like some people there have better idea what's going on than others.

Now if what that tech said is correct, I would actually try color slides. Use the 120-slide webapalooza ones and set the turnover to very quick (4-7 seconds between) and see about running for a while. Basically, he claimed that it's due to uneven refresh, so it's probably not a bad idea to push through solid color slides with varying color/shade/intensity so that it's cycling through different normal reset voltage states (i.e. within normal the expected ranges w/o actually changing the voltages).

Called the pioneer service for the "reddish tint". They cecked the voltage values and the hours. Service couldn't fix the problem.
post #402 of 2557
Thanks guys. Keep the info coming.

nofaith, your assembly serial number looks to be invalid. "IF" means your display was assembled in May 2009. Please verify.

wxman, Thanks for your info. As a sanity check, please recheck your PDP module's serial number.

jowicrt, please re check both of your serial numbers. I think you have provided your assembly date and serial number, not your PDP module's serial number.

For those who can provide the PDP module's serial if you can put in a format similar to jayw547, that would be great.

This is the number on the sticker on the top right hand side of the casing, and also what the KRP reports using IP control. I can't find the other one, i tried to look into the vents but didn't see anything?

No, it doesnt for me. I've used this pattern but can not replicate any sparkles with it. I have to play some video with some moving black objects, e.q. someone's head against some background, and you will see a lot of sparkles and purple 'lag' in the (former) black area's...

Not sure if this matters but the last three digits of the display module are highlighted in orange (9E6). Maybe they do that when they're checking things but I just thought that was kind of odd.

I hope this information is useful. For the last few months I have been turning on the panel first then when the black level stabilizes (2 steps) I turn on my CM7000PAL. The red shift seems to be less noticeable recently....for what that may be worth. I am probably just becoming used to the tint!

OK, I don't own a Kuro but I have to ask. With over 400 replies in this thread, is this a major flaw with the 'Mighty Kuro' or is it just that there are so many of them out there and they're starting to get old? Or is it something else?
