I have a pioneer pdp 5030 tv the red standby light flashes four times and then stops and then repeats the sequence, I have no picture. What is the problem?

Hi. I'm Steve. I'm sorry to hear about your TV. I will try my best to give you a precise and accurate answer.


Unfortunately I do not have good news for you. 4 blinks indicates a 'SCN 5V' failure. The first things to check would be the Y Drive and the two Scan boards attached to it.


Those are shown here:


A schematic would be helpful along with a multimeter. If you want to try it, let me know.


If you want to pay to have it repaired, it is not going to be cheap. I would think in the £200- £400 range minimum. I would highly recommend that you find someone who knows about these Kuro sets.


I'll be here if you need more help. I'm really sorry that there is no quick fix.
