Customer Question

My Pioneer Elite, approximately 12 years old, just, in l
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Pioneer is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: My Pioneer Elite, approximately 10 to 12 years old, just, in the last 30 minutes, developed a dark strip across the top 20 percent of the screen. This has never ocurred in the past. It is dark enough that text cannot be read through it.
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: The tv menu works. We have turned off the television, changed channels, watch recorded programs and watch Netflix. The problem is consistent.
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: It just occurred
JA: Anything else you want the Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I was changing between Netflix and regular television.

Can you please get me the full model number off of the back of the Pioneer TV?

Also, what's connected to the set for sources (cable box, DVD player, home theater receiver, etc.)?
