Hello and sorry you're having problems. I may be able to help, but I need to ask for more info.
1) What's the model number off of the back of the Pioneer Plasma?
2) When did this problem occur- was it after a storm or power outage, etc.?
3) Does the power light on the set blink at all (perhaps in groups of 12) when this issue occurs?
4) Any other devices besides the Comcast box connected (DVD player for example), and does the TV display video and sound for these sources?
