Need Help With My PRO-151FD
I have a 151 that I just moved from my living room to my bedroom. During the transition time, it was unplugged for a couple weeks. Once I hooked it up in the bedroom and turned it on, I saw a message on the screen that said "Starting Up, Please Wait." It was in a gray box at the bottom center of the screen and had a yellow exclamation point in the box. The message disappeared after a minute or so, but I've noticed now that when I press the home key on the remote to bring up the menu options, most everything is grayed out (Channel, Favorites, Input, Home Media Gallery, HDMI control). "Setup" is not grayed out, but when I select that option, I only have access to Picture, Sound, Power Control, Sleep Timer, and Option. System Setup and Favorites Setup are both grayed out. If I move the cursor over one of the grayed out options, the message below says "Current status does not allow selection and adjustment."
The TV seems to still work fine with the exception of the "Starting Up, Please Wait." message being occasionally displayed upon turning the TV on and also sometimes when changing inputs, even after the TV has been on for a while. The blue light on the front is always solid when the 151 is on (no blinking). I've tried performing multiple resets (pulling power cord, holding on/standby button for 15 seconds after plugging back in, etc.), but nothing has changed. I thought maybe the firmware needed to be updated (unfortunately because most of my menu items are grayed out, I'm unable to see what version is currently loaded). I went ahead and downloaded the firmware from Pioneer's website and followed their update instructions. It seemed like it was working, but then I noticed the orange light was blinking twice during the process, which according to Pioneer's instructions means that the firmware that's currently on the TV is the same or newer than what I was trying to update it with.
I'm pretty much out of ideas at this point. Has anyone else had this problem? FYI, the only sources connected to it are my Directv receiver via HDMI 4 and my Roku Express via HDMI 5. I am using the optical digital out to feed my soundbar. There is no antenna hooked up to the 151 (nor was there one hooked up to it prior to moving it to the bedroom).
