Thanks for the advice. I unplugged the power chord out of the surge protector and waited a few minutes and plugged it back in and it's fixed.

Hey everyone...
I am sad to say it seems like my Pioneer Elite Pro-5020 crapped out.
I turned it on this morning, was watching for maybe 1 min when I heard a sort of cracking sound and the screen went blank. The standby light turned from blue to red and started flashing. 2 flashes, long pause, 2 flashes, long pause and so on.
Anyone know if there is any chance in salvaging it? From what I have looked at so far it seems likely that 1 or more capacitors on the board may have blown...
Any ideas, recommendations or tips are appreciated
Thanks

Here is a link to order factory new parts for the Pioneer PDP-5020FD.

http://parts.pioneerelectronics.com/model.asp?modelNum=PDP%2D5020FD

If you are an experienced technician and if the problem is with the power supply, then you could order a Power Supply replacement unit for $332.

http://parts.pioneerelectronics.com/part.asp?productNum=AXY1200

Someone on EBAY is selling a used AXY1200 power supply unit for $99.99 or best offer.

If you are uncomfortable with replacing the power supply or making repairs on the Pioneer yourself you could have a authorized Pioneer technician do it for you. http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Support/Service-Center



Also what board has the blown capacitors? Maybe there is nothing wrong with the power supply. I hope this information helps.

It's probably time to upgrade. I still have my 5020, working real good.

When it comes time to upgrade my Pioneer plasma. I plan on getting a 4K projector or 4K OLED flat panel. There is no rush for me since I am waiting for the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format to launch in 2016. Unless something breaks, I am looking at around 2018 to upgrade. If 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray movies are released in mid to late 2016, then I have a 4K Ultra HD computer monitor I can use to watch the select few movies in 4K Ultra HD. When 100+ 4K Ultra HD Bu-ray disc titles get released then I will be more interested in upgrading.

If my 1080P plasma flat panel broke and was not repairable, then I would strongly consider a 4K OLED flat panel now (Or a 4K projector).

By 2018 it will be time to consider 8K OLED

If 8K flat panels become a reality one day, I will be interested in 8K as long as native 8K source material becomes a reality. Maybe someone will rescan the Wizard of Oz and Gone With the Wind negative in 16K or 8K along with other classic films. That 8K flat panel would need to be around 150+ inches to see all the 8K resolution detail.


A 8K optical disc format might not be released until around 2026. However by then 10Gbps Internet or faster will be the norm. It is a strong possibility that the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format will be the last consumer optical disc format. When and if native 8K movies become a reality, they will most likely only be available as a download and streaming option. It might be around 10 years before native 8K movies become a consumer reality.

Nice pictures and I am glad you are happy about getting a 2008 Pioneer plasma connected in late December 2015. You most likely must have purchased a used one from someone. The 2008 Pioneer plasmas are still one of the best flat panels on the market for 2-D 1080P picture quality.

Kuro owner since May 09-

Last week I started to notice a crackling sound across the entire back of the tv-

I had a tech look at it and he said it was "discharge from the panel and the entire panel would need replaced".

Has this happened to anyone else?

Boy, this is scary. I have had mine since June 2009, so...

Are you going to have it fixed?

well, the guy said it would be be about 2600 to replace the panel.... I don't think he did his due diligence in trying to diagnose the issue though.. I am going to have someone else look at it.

If you don't have a power conditioner running power to it, i would highly suggest getting one- i think my apartment had crappy power lines.

I picked up a near mint used 5020fd on craigslist for 475 bucks. Functions perfectly. It's nice to be part of the 9g Kuro club.

That was a excellent bargain for the classic 2008 Pioneer plasma. Back in 2008 that was a $3,500 TV. Here are some links that might be useful.

I remember paying $2000 for my 5020 in February 2009.

By now, it has so many hours on it (close to 15,000 - retired as a main display in Feb 2014), the red tint effect, that it's relegated to being my gaming TV.

But they will have to pry my 5020 from my cold dead hands. I'm never getting rid of this TV.

This is a interesting read


"Iím looking to buy a 65-inch LG OLED Ultra HDTV to replace my Pioneer Kuro plasma, which is now 9 years old."



Should I Buy a TV Now, or Wait for HDMI 2.1?

Pioneer owners who have not upgraded to 4K Ultra HD projectors or OLED flat panels yet, might want to purchase a OPPO UDP-203 first. Watching native 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays downscaled to 1080P has a better picture quality on the Pioneer plasma in terms of black levels when compared to watching the same movie in true 4K Ultra HD quality on a low cost 4K Ultra HD flat panel screen that has poor black levels. The HEVC codec with its high bit rates peaking above 100Mbps for some movie scenes, appears to produce a 5-10% better picture quality on the 1080P Pioneer plasmas when compared to standard 1080P Blu-ray discs that have lower video bit rates.
