    Two days before Christmas half way through MOTD and the screen makes a funny chirp noise, turns off and I'm left with a blinking red light (x2 blinks). :(

    It's under warranty so no worries there (fingers crossed) but any ideas what it can be? And how long to repair – is it a house visit or a send away? (Please, its Christmas!)

    Thanks in advance

    :lease:

    is the TV running too hot? make sure no radiator is next to it or something blocking vent holes

    otherwise it could be that the internal protective circuit may have activated. if so manual says unplug from wall for a couple of minutes then replug and see if it works again

    if this doesn't work then you need to contact Pioneer

    good luck

    Yeah tried that. Unplugged and turned back on – it attempted to power on with blue power light as normal but then returned to x2 red blinking lights.

    I really want to know what that code is.

    Quick update less than 24hrs later.

    Phoned Pioneer today and then their service centre phoned me. They are coming out tomorrow to fix on site.

    Possible cause is either a power failure or video processing board. So at least they know - fingers crossed.

    Amazing! It’s been fixed on site. So big thumbs up to Pioneer UK Customer Service and Yorkshire Multi-Media Services for very quick response.

    Happy Christmas

    It was the power board which needed to be replaced.

    :thumbsup:
