I've got a two year old (and a few months) Pionee Plasma, 433HDE and it has gone faulty, with a bang and a flash. Towards the end of last year the media receiver stopped auto-switching of the SCART inputs and was replaced FOC, now this has just happened. The TV only gets used 3-4 hrs per day, so nothing excessive, neve left in standby, and connected via a power protection surge board to the mains. Has anyone else had reliability problems with Pioneer. All their previous Hi-Fi kit I've had has been perfect. The reapirers say it is a power supply, but it is out of warranty. I would still not expect it to fail in two years of light use.
