Chances are what's needed now has nothing to do with your PS board, tho that said, I would never trust a Pioneer rebuilt board to last very long. Oh that's right, you've already found that out...
But I will reiterate it here anyway: The Pioneer rebuilt boards are not to be trusted. I have had many sent to me for permanent repair after they have been purchased from Pioneer and installed in those owners' sets, only to last a while then give out again. After having resoldered and lifetime guaranteed many of those boards by now, I can tell you that the Pioneer techs do it the same way most local techs do it, which does not include the future-proofing mine ALWAYS
include. And NOBODY I know of provides the lifetime warranty
on that work that I provide with each and every resoldering job I do on these boards. My resoldering job on your original PS board keeps you in your original board, which keeps everything the factory set up on your set originally still in play, esp. the high precision settings downline. Mine don't go out on you again, ever. You send me your PS board, you never again have to worry about this phenomenon making you consider buying new - and possibly as you said cause no end to the disruption to your current system and being an incredible PITA - just to provide an answer to that problem.
If you want corroboration on this, go back a few pages in this thread to where I took pictures of boards rebuilt by Pioneer and subsequently sent to me when they went out again and resoldered by me in spots they never hit, showing entire sections of the board never attended to during the rebuild by Pioneer. Which is why they went out again later. Doesn't happen with boards resoldered by me.
Your status is not all that different from that of many of those who have kept up on this thread and been helped in the end with permanent results, and they are still enjoying their fantastic Pioneer Elite CRT sets to this day with no further problems.
My suggestion is to sign up for a troubleshooting session with me on the phone and we'll wrestle this puppy to the ground together. It is not free, but also not expensive either, in the grand scheme of things. When you have your set as the focal point of your entire viewing room and that viewing room is ideal already and not in need of any changes, it's time to fix your set. Luckily these 510/610/710 series Elite sets are some of the most repair-friendly sets ever made. You've come to the right place, in landing here at this thread. If you want to see what your set is really capable of with the proper care and feeding, survey the screenshots at post #11125
of this thread:
More shots from your model of set can be found at page 45 of this very thread you're reading right now.
You have a fine set there that is only halfway through its service life. With the proper attention you won't want to even consider buying a new LCD display. I have proven this with many - many - displays around the country, of your set's actual model number.
Send me your contact info and we'll continue this live -
