Hello, When the video is intermittent you need to first look at a couple of other things. First- how long of a run is the HDMI cable to the TV? Anything longer than 20 feet will be prone to dropouts. Also have you tried another HDMI cable from the Pioneer to the TV?

Also how old is the receiver, and when did this problem occur?

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, have you checked/replaced the video connecting cable? ...what type of cable is used? ...of what source(s)?

Would symptom persist if video source is directly connected to the TV?

Still, proposed preliminary try (if have not been done) is to perform a RESET. A reset is both a test and a try of a fix. As it implies, a reset would force the unit to revert back to factory defaults removing glitches and config errors but would include memories, presets and user preferences. After a reset, the initial setup would have to be performed. Again if have not been done and should you venture to try: please click HERE.

May have to be done a number of times.

This is very critical - a reset however would not be corrective of a compatibility issue or even an internal hardware concern; but it would be confirmed. In some instances, it may even expose other faults.

Electronics Technician: Louie, Technician replied 2 years ago

Please check and update the firmware (if necessary).

The above would be the last user doable try as all others would either be hardware or compatibility concerns.
