No, it is not 1.3. You can upgrade the cables if you are experiencing any sparkles or irregularities in your transmission but the current HDMI cables should be ok.

1. tv turns itself off and then the blue light blinks 12 times on the media receiver.
2overnight the media receiver blue light is blinking 12 times. tv won't turn on
3. turning on the tv screen shows plasma warming up please wait but never goes away.
only thing that I found that works is to unplug the media receiver from the wall and plug it back in the tv now works. anybody have some ideas?
I know that this could be related to the guide downloading not sure if its all related.

All I have to do to rectify the problem is turn the set back on, where I do get the "plasma warming up please wait" message briefly before the picture comes back.

Not really the same problem you are having, but strange none-the-less.

Well, I guess I jinxed it, because I started experiencing problem #3 above!

So you're saying it does not support v1.3?

The 4360 does not support HDMI 1.3. It wouldn't be that much useful if it did unless you had everything in your home theater chain being 1.3. For video purposes, HDMI 1.1 is fine.

Edit: You can USE HDMI 1.3 cables but they don't benefit you in any way unless you have a very long run of cable required.

ok here's the results. called pioneer and they told me call a service they didn't know anything about either issue go figure. anyway since its out of factory warranty the extended service guy came to the house and after seeing the plasma starting please wait screen. he called into his shop and they checked pioneer's website. nothing found. so he took the tv back with him screen,cable and media center. expecting a call some time next week. i'll keep you posted with the follow up and possible the cause and or cure.

ok had a tech guy come to my house showed him what was going on after a brief time told me we have to take it back to the shop for repairs. 6 days later another tech calls me to ask whats wrong with the tv?don't this guys talk to each other? come on you have a tv in your shop and you don't know why its there? finally told this tech what was wrong and he knew what was up with the blinking blue lights needed a updated turner. no problem, doesn't know anything about the second problem with the plasma warming up screen says it might be the main board. he doesn't work friday and will start to work on it tuesday. 10 full days after its in the shop. hope to get it back before christmas at this rate.

Hang in there. Is the TV at an authorized Pioneer service center or third party?
post #5439 of 5599
you know not really sure they sold me the tv and the extended warranty. doesn't much matter to me as longs as its repaired. if they can't fix it they have to replace it.

Extended warranty is usually through a third party. Elites carry a 2 year warranty. Is it beyond 2 years for you? I'd be more comfortable with Pioneer servicing if your manufacturer warranty is still valid. At least they're supposed to know what they're doing...

just got off the phone with the repair center they had to order parts no big deal. so i asked this guy what parts are ordered? he responds the dtv board and the main board. how long i ask? parts could take another 5 to 7 days if were lucky and then to install? not sure. not comes the question do i havew to wait another 200 hours for the components to burn it for calibration or is it only 200 hours for the screen to burn in? any ideas? looks like i won't be watching any tv/movies any time soon
post #5442 of 5599
spudbudy did you try power cycling the TV? Make sure you are on a non-digital channel. Hit the TV Guide button, then highlight the CHANGE SYSTEM SETTINGS tab which is under setup, then enter this code 653274147. The TV Guide will go away and then you can turn the set off. You will see the blinking lights again and you are supposed to wait 24 hours but I usually just give it a couple of hours. This has worked for me in the past.
post #5443 of 5599
Hello gang got a call from the service center today. the tv is done and will be returned on monday. long delay in waiting for the main board replacement also the dtv board.
yes I have cycled the power to both the panel and the media center but the problem kept coming back. the blinking blue lights was one thing annoying at best but the plasma warming up please wait couldn't be ignored. will report back with the final verdict next week.
post #5444 of 5599
IT's BACK. got it today .it turns on and everything. factory reset as they replaced the main board all of the previous settings were set back to default. so here we go again will take the test disks to it later in the week.
post #5445 of 5599
OK this is right out of Ripleys believe it or not. this morning the blinking blue light was back go figure. called the shop back up and they said we'll get back to you after we talk to pioneer. I think i'm getting the runaround.

You did say if they couldn't fix it you get a new TV, right?

I cannot program 2 of 4 PBS over the air HD stations into my TV Guide. There are 4 stations, 9.001, 9.002, 88.007 and 88.009. When I add 9.001 to my listing, stations 88.007 and 88.009, which has already been added, changes to 9.007 and 9.009.

Vice versa, when I try to change stations 9.007 back to 88.001, stations 9.001 and 9.002 changes to 88.001 and 88.002.

As a result, in order for me to use 9.001 and 9.002, I have to remove 88.007 and 88.009 from my listing. This has happened months past, but eventually resolved itself after powering the TV off for 8 hours. However, it's been 2 weeks now and the problem remains.

shop guy said he'll check again with pioneer but i don't think anything else will be done. it might have been the first day jitters with the guide downloading for the first time it hasn't happened since.

My 2 year old Pro 1130HD panel has begun to "blink" (a brief completely black screen flash) on a somewhat regular basis. It doesn't do it all the time, but I have noticed it while watching both DVDs and my D* HD DVR (both connected via HDMI for video). It's not that bad but worries me. When it happens it happens about every 30 seconds or so. Any ideas?
post #5450 of 5599
Jediphish,
Did you try another HDMI cable. It happened to me one time but new HDMI cable fixed the problem.

Anyone having problems with the glare protection rubbing off? My cats will put their nose to the screen. After rubbing off the mark with water, the glare protection comes off too.

I called Pioneer last year and they said it's not covered under warranty.

i own a 5060 plasma purchased 12/19/05. on 8/22/08 the hdmi inputs on the pdp-r06u media receiver stopped working. i tried new hdmi cables and they still did not work. i called my cable company and they switched the box and they still don't work. i have unplugged all my electronic units and then replugged them and they still don't work. i rebooted my router and they still don't work. i have the cable box connected to input 1 and a sony ps3 connected to input 3 both via hdmi. neither one works on hdmi. the cable box does work on component. the hdmi setting is enabled and auto for video and audio on both input 1 and input 3. any idea what is causing the hdmi input not to work? what is the solution to get them to work? also the warranty doesn't mention the pdp-r06u- just the plasma display panel. what is the warranty period for the pdp-r06u media receiver?

Have you tried a full reboot of your media receiver? Unplug it and wait a few minutes, then plug in the power plug and turn on the TV. In the Option menu, you'll find an option to activate HDMI.

The standard Pioneer sets, such as your 5060, had a one-year warranty on the display and media box; the Elite models had a two-year warranty. I had trouble with my Pioneer PRO-1130 TV's media box in the second year; the repair worked for awhile, but the problem resurfaced this fall. Following replacement of a tuner board and motherboard by the local authorized service center, Pioneer replaced the entire media center. You may find it worthwhile to talk with their service department, which is listed on their website.

yes i tried a reboot of the system. not only the tv but my entire system. i'm on hold with pioneer right now as i type and will see what they say. i hope it's a simple, cheap fix. i'm kind of surprised that a pioneer unit would only last less than 3 years before something went wrong (assuming something is definitely wron g with the unit).

edit: pioneer response: "sounds like it's my hdmi board. need to go to a service center for repair". i asked if i could purchase a new media receiver and was told they don't have any and don't know where to get one sicne they were produced along with the display only.

edit: local service center coming tomorrow between 5-7PM EST. will keep you informed.

edit: service center said it was hdmi board. $350 for board and $150 for installation. wow!

I have been experiencing problems with my tuner. What doesn't work on yours? Is it completely dead?

my hdmi inputs on the pdp-r06u media receiver don't work. the service center that came to my house said it was an hdmi output board that needs to be replaced. $500 before tax. might get another estimate before i decide. my 5060 is 2 1/2 years old.

other than that it works fine. i am currently using component for the cable box and my ps3. but i won't get all the new codecs on optical out from the ps3 unlike i can from hdmi. my receiver is 1.3 so i need the hdmi to work for the audio. i feel that the picture is better through hdmi also.

My 1130 has started blinking recently while watching cable. Should I expect imminent media receiver failure?

Mine has been flashing on and off intermittently when using the HD DVR via HDMI. I thought it was the DVR, but maybe the HDMI board is ready to croak?

The Component DVD player is fine, so I guess I should check the HDMI DVD Player. This seems to always happen when I am at work, so I can only do so much over the phone with my wife.
