Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
I see you were chatting with the site assistant. I am Mike, the field technician assigned to help you. If you see a pop up for phone call service, it was not sent by me and I am not available by phone. To get started, I need to know you can see this message and are able to reply to me here.

Can you get the actual model number off the back of the tv please?
The tv turns on and runs with picture and sound for 10 minutes before shutting off?
After it shuts off the LED blinks blue, can you double check the exact number of blinks?
I am looking at the service documents and there is no 14 blinks.
But there is 13 or 15 blinks. Both of these require replacing a board in the tv that is VERY VERY hard to find and extremely expensive due to availability. If you are trying to perform a DIY repair, taking a chance on that board if you do actually have 14 blinks would be unwise. I would highly recommend you at least re-count the blinks, or hire a local repair shop to perform actual diagnosis/repair.
Are you sure it's not 12 blinks which is very common? There is actually a very reasonable service for 12 blink symptom.
I see what I can find for the 13 or 15 blinks, but since 14 is not even listed as a valid code..... not sure what good it will do to look it up. understand?
Looks like the board for 13 or 15 can be purchased for only $100 now (refurbished)!
I cannot speculate on 14 blinks, does not exist in the official Pioneer Service Documents.
Repairs will likely be $350-$450.
Usually in home diagnosis is $99 up front.
Being 10 years old, the display panel itself may have only a few more good years left. In my opinion, I myself would not spend $400 on this tv given the low prices on new tv's.
If you need more help or don't understand something use the REPLY option and you may also submit a 3 to 5 star rating at the top of this page now so that I am recognized for helping with your question. Rating does not close your question or prevent future replies which are at no additional cost. The longer you wait to submit a rating, the less chance I will receive recognition.
Hello, just checking back in to see if you still need help, or perhaps you would like to acknowledge that my time and input has been helpful?
