KRP-600A --MEDIA BOX BLINKS BLUE AND WONT START UP???
This Christmas, I suddenly experienced the blue blink, non-startup issue on my media receiver box of my 60 inch Kuro KRP-600A, that I purchased from Harrods(10K), owned since new (2008), and is still aesthetically in mint condition. I Googled for a repair, and at the top of the list was KuroKing.com. I contacted him and he understood the fault immediately and offered me two solutions: (A) purchase one of their already professionally refurbished media boxes, or (B) repair of my own media box. I chose the latter because I previously had my Kuro professionally calibrated and wanted to retain my ISF settings.
What stood out about this amazing service, is that, not only did Kuroking successfully repair it, but it was done much faster than I expected. Van collected it from me on the 29th December and returned it to me on the 31st December, set it all up and demonstrated it working; I entered the new year on a high note. Kuroking said "it could of been sooner, but we like to run a minimum 48 hour load/heat test before signing them off as repaired". His technical knowledge and enthusiasm are reassuring. This is a very high quality service, for those that appreciate the finer things in life...

I posted that I needed the hard to find side speakers with the proprietary speaker cables for my KRP-500M. Van instantly responded and shipped the speakers and cables to me in New Jersey, USA. From my request to delivery only took a few days. Amazing! So Glad that I found The Kuro Forum

My Kuro 600M failed and the dreaded 8 flashing blue light sequence began.
Decided to google and came across the KuroKing.
After a phone call with Van, a visit/repair was immediately booked.
Van arrived on time after a 2hr drive and proceeded to fix my treasured plasma.
I highly recommend Van, as he is a top bloke, and certainly is the KuroKing.

I attempted to repair my beloved KRP-600P plasma panel (the display part of the KRP-600A TV System) that had the dreaded 8 blue blink issue. I bought the part from another Pioneer Kuro supplier, but I after I fitted the part I now had 15 blue blinks instead. I was recommended the Kuroking by the supplier, who happened to have a mint condition 600P plasma panel with very low hours. I decided to part exchange my one for that. Van delivered and installed it, and the picture was even more stunning than usual. Great service!

The Pioneer KRP-S03 side speakers I bought are great for everyday TV programmes... I only use my soundbar and subwoofer for Bluray blockbusters! The speakers arrived really quickly, and were safe and sound due to the excellent packaging.

When I tried to turn on my Pioneer LX5090 I found no picture and 15 red blinks. After a bit of research I discovered Van's website. He said that this was the most serious of the blinking codes but "don't worry I can fix it". Sure enough he did! Not only that but he provided excellent and a super-friendly service. The TV had to be picked up for Van to work on it at his workshop, but it was returned a matter of hours later. The TV is now back to normal thanks to Van. He certainly is the Kuro King.

I spoke to Van first, but instead I chose to repair my KRP-500P display myself with parts I bought elsewhere. However, it failed again after a month. I decided to contact Kuroking again and he recommened to me one of his professionally refurbished, mint condition KRP-500P plasma display (with all new parts) that had only done 6.5k hours (of 100,000 hours optimum brightness half life) and includes 1 year warranty. It was also delivered and installed. A very professional and effecient service. I highly recommend this service and I should of chose him the first time...

Paid for my media box and KRP-500 display to be checked by a local TV repair company twice, and they claimed that there was nothing wrong with it. However, the TV would shut down every 30 minutes and the display status LEDs would flash RED & BLUE. This went on for many months until I googled for help. I saw the Kuroking website and persuaded him to come to Leicester. As soon as he arrived he entered the log of my media receiver box, which displayed the fault. I immediately purchased the Professionally refurbished media receiver that he had brought along with him. Finally, me and my family can watch our beloved Kuro in peace. TV has been fault free for 10 days so far. Thank you Kuroking

PIONEER KURO LX5090
The Kuro King came out to me on February 18th, in the middle of the terrible 'STORM EUNICE', to repair my 7 year old LX5090 Kuro. The TV now works as new. Van was very professional and provided me with a 1 year guarantee for peace of mind. I was very impressed with the service. Top marks! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kuroking.
A. WILLIAMS - HASLEMERE, SURREY
Very grateful that I found Van & that he was able to repair my Kuro within 24 hours! I was even given the choice of a same model replacement or a repair. I opted for the latter because I have had mine since it was new. It was a fast & efficient service that I highly recommend should you ever be in need of a TV repair!

My LX5090 succumb to the 8 blue blink fault. I found the Kuroking via google. It was repaired and professionally cleaned as I waited. I also had a new power board installed, which reduced the level of the plasma hum. Very thorough and professional. Thank you, my kid is ecstatic

I bought one of the first Pioneer Plasma’s back in 2006. It was spectacular and is working perfectly even now. But I wanted a larger screen. I didn’t like the modern 4k TV’s, as in some scenario’s the contrasts are too extreme. So on the off chance I Googled Pioneer 60” and found Van’s website. I bought one almost straight away. I’ve had it 6 months and every time I turn it on, I smile. The picture is perfection, which doesn’t come across as good in this iPhone image, but believe me, it's awesome!

I have now got my TV working again and the picture is better than ever, thanks to Van. Long may KuroKing keep operating as I still think that the Pioneer Kuro has been the best TV ever made. Thanks again for all your help.

Van certainly is “The Man” as far as I'm concerned. He worked tirelessly at his workshop on my old KRP-500P Kuro display that was signalling blue flashing lights - and intermittent shut down squares - and an annoying habit of not being able to turn it off!! One comms board solution tried, but another short discovered, but no matter he quickly offered a solution - swap out my TV for a professionally refurbished one with way less hours. He even cleaned out my dusty media receiver box - all at very reasonable price, I must add. Van even refitted my old TV bezel surround, so that my wife could have her original that had special attachment points for her floral decoration (as in attached picture). This bloke is the business, he is intelligent, resourceful, honest as the day is long and clearly willing to go the extra mile and more to leave the customer very happy indeed. What a refreshing change to meet a real gentleman and expert in his field.

LX5090 BLUE BLINK REPAIR SERVICE
7th of June 2021
My LX5090 got a case of the Blue 8 flashing indicator light. At first we could wait a few hours and the TV would turn on again. Then it stopped.
Not wanting to buy another TV and having already done a little research into the problem. I contacted Kuro King. Thankfully he was able to come out a couple of days later with the replacement parts and get the TV up and running again.
Great job, friendly service and highly recommended.

PDP-S65 SPEAKER BAR
FOR 60 INCH LX6090 KURO
5th June 2021
First of all, thanks for those great PDP-S65 Kuro speakers. I couldn't find them anywhere. At 147cm long, It is a delicate item to ship. However, your packing was FANTASTIC; not a scratch! As a bonus, I did not have to remove the screen from the wall (It weighs over 50kg) to attach the speaker bar. I also possess the 50 inch LX5090 KURO. I just love the quality of the Kuro picture. It has an emotion not found in today's Oleds. Thanks again!
Thank you for the parts and clear instructions to repair our much loved KRP-500A Kuro. Your diagnosis was spot on. P. Angus - Saint-Coutant, France 10/5/21

In the first instance Kuro King offered to repair my 8th generation 42 inch Pioneer display. The price was good and the repair was going to be speedy. However, as soon as Van showed me the mint Professionally Refurbished 9th generation 50 inch LX5090 Kuro he had available, I decided it was a no-brainer to swap and upgrade. I also picked up some mint condition Pioneer Kuro side speakers (PDP-S62) to complement the display from him. I never thought I would be lucky enough to own one of these beautiful devices and my family are delighted; most especially my son who suffers from migraines and doesn't get along with either LED displays or projectors, but for whom the plasma screen is not a problem at all. Van is a great guy. He's a passionate and erudite advocate of the Kuro.

I'm a Ferrari enthusiast as well as a proud Pioneer Kuro LX5090 owner for over 12 years; Infact, all my AV stuff is Pioneer, so when I saw that the Kuro King was offering the PDP-S63 sound bar in whatever colour you like, I naturally selected 'rossa' red.
A truly great service.
CUSTOM PDP-S63 SOUND BAR FOR THE KURO LX5090
Our older Pioneer plasma TV (PDP-505XDE) had a very bad case of green screen burn. Instead of repairing it, we opted for an 8th generation Kuro upgrade instead. It was delivered and installed. Immediately we could appreciate the staggering improvement in the picture quality. We should of upgraded years ago. Thank you

I am a repeat customer of the Kuro King. I originally bought a media box for my older Pioneer plasma TV a few years ago. This time I needed my prized LX6090 brought back to life because it was suffering from the '8 blue blink' start-up issue. I am extremely well pleased with the result because now the picture is perfect. In fact, it looks better than before.

I finally found someone to repair my much loved Kuro LX5090 that was blinking blue and not turning on. I called, and the Kuro King came straight away and fixed it swiftly. I decided that I wanted it placed on the wall in my games room, so I bought the original Pioneer Kuro slim fitting wall bracket kit (KRP-WM02) plus the Kuro under bar speaker PDP-S63 from the Kurostore; which was fitted at the same time. Now I can watch the soccer on Sky sports in style. The Pioneer SRS WOW sound is awesome. No need for a Sonos!!

Many thanks, Van, for your excellent guidance and foolproof tutorial for removing and replacing the circuit boards for my KURO 5090. Living in rural France I had no access to a TV engineer to fix the 8 blue blink problem. With your help I was able to remove and replace the two circuit boards in the Pioneer KURO repair kit. The KURO is now fully restored to its original glory. This was the first time I'd had the back cover off the KURO and my, my, what a quality build this set was.

I purchased the 8 blue blink call-out service for my 60 inch KRP-600A Kuro, that has been used practically everyday since new, over 10 years ago. The screw holes of the Allen key style screws that secured the wall mounting arms to the back of the Kuro were completely worn and were over torqed. They wouldn't budge. No pliers could grip them because the heads were circular and domed. I thought I was out of luck...but the Kuro King persevered and got the screws out with a drill. He then performed the repair swiftly and successfully. Phew!! Afterwards, he went in the service menu to check the usage hours, and said that I hold the record for the most hours used on a Kuro from the many hundreds of Kuro that he has serviced over the years. The picture above is from the service menu and shows the hours of 58,768. He informed me that although that's a lot of usage, I will still get another 10 years of optimal performance out of this Kuro; easily!! He added, the Kuro is guaranteed to hold its original brightness performance for 100,000 hours. Afterwards the brightness may dip a little bit, but you can always turn up the brightness in the settings by one notch to compensate, so this will not affect anything. The Kuroking is a champion!!

I had to get my Kuro repaired quickly because my wife was getting upset because she couldnt watch her favourite programmes. I couldn't find anyone locally that knows about the Kuro. I googled 'kuro 8 blue blink' and found this treasure of a website. The way the Kuroking methodically went through the steps to diagnose the fault, gave me confidence to proceed.
I ordered the repair kit, followed the instructions and now my old Kuro works again. Happy days!!

It was time to call the Kuroking because we could no longer reliably watch our favourite Pioneer Kuro LX5090 TV; it would frequently blink blue when you tried to switch it on. We have other TVs in the house but nothing compares to watching movies on a Kuro. I thought he was going to say, he could repair it next week, but to my surprise, the Kuroking said he could be with me within a few hours. I said, "yes, please!!"
All repaired now, and I am a very happy chappy. He is the genuine article!!

Just found time to say thanks for your help & assistance back on the 5th December - the Kuro got safely back home & put to great use over the last couple of weeks. We are very happy with it.
Fantastic service & I very much appreciate you keeping the Kuro brand alive.

I had the dreaded 8 blue blinks on my 50 inch LX5090 Kuro that I have had from new. As soon as I spoke to the Kuroking on the phone, I knew he was the right person for the job. Infact, I was so impressed with the repair and his pleasant personality, that I decided to purchase one of his 60 inch professionally refurbished LX6090 KURO as well. The Kuroking even helped me to hang it on the wall; perfectly centre and level, and ensured that all my source cables were fitted correctly. Afterwards he went into the colour settings and tweaked them. The picture on both of my Kuro is now 10 times better than before. It's good to meet someone that actually knows what they are doing.

I'm a hands on type of guy, that has worked in the electronics Industry for many years. 11 years ago I bought the 60 inch LX6090 Kuro because I wanted the best; and it still is!!
I was going to attempt the repair myself, but after seeing him perform with all the critical/delicate steps and procedures, let alone the shear weight and size of this Kuro, I am now glad that I opted for the Kuroking '8 blue blink call-out repair service'. He handled it with care and wore gloves to keep the TV clean. A true professional and a genuine nice guy. Now our family can enjoy watching movies this Christmas. Thank you

We accidentally cracked the glass of our Kuro. We googled for help and were directed to KuroKing.com. After a pleasant and informative chat regarding Kuro TVs and tech, I was convinced he was the real deal and someone to trust. He safely delivered to us a mint condition, professionally refurbished (all new parts) KRP-500P plasma display. It is exactly as described in the Kuro store. Infact, I am so satisfied, that I have also ordered the 60 inch KRP-600A TV system from the Kuroking. What I like is his attention to detail and his genuine passion for the KURO; which is something I also share.

My KRP-M01 media receiver had the dreaded 8 blue blinks and I needed someone that could offer me a same day service. I didn't want to post it out to be repaired in case it got damaged in transit. I wanted someone that was nearby so that I could drop it off myself. The Kuroking 'ticked all the boxes'. He also had fully updated boxes readily available, so I choose that option instead and kept mine as a spare for the future. His studio workshop is like a Kuro emporium, with all types of Kuro on the wall and all around. It was a pleasure meeting him. This is a man you can trust.

PIONEER PUREVISION PDP-507XD
I am a proud owner from new (13+ years) of a Pioneer Purevision PDP-507XD. We love the warm vivid and bright image it displays and It looks classy on our wall; unlike the new thin bezel TVs that look flimsy and cheap. A few weeks ago it started to take many attempts to turn on and then it would not start at all. It would just blink blue 7 or 8 times.
We googled "Pioneer TV repair" and found KUROKING.COM
He knew the fault right away and came and fixed it quickly.
Much appreciated, Josie

I had been searching for years for someone to repair (8 BLUE BLINKS) my two Kuro LX5090's that I paid over £5000 for back in 2009. Pioneer don't support them no more but these TVs are way too good to give up on. So, I decided to give google one last try last week, and Amen!! I found the Kuro King website. Finally, someone that is still dedicated to the service and support of the Legendary Kuro. All those wires and circuits inside look so complicated. You really need to know what you are doing. Cannot thank the Kuro King enough for coming to our rescue

I highly recommended the Kuro King to all Pioneer Kuro owners. Money well spent!!

I contacted last week with the 8 blue blinking lights fault on my 50 inch Kuro KRP500A unable to fire up. My message was answered within an hour, and after a couple of questions I was given two options. Decided to go with a replacement panel instead of a repair, and despite my concerns regarding posting a panel it arrived yesterday as promised and now the Kuro is back in perfect health. Truly great service, and it actually cost me a lot less than I was expecting! Recommended 100% and any future issues I won’t hesitate to use the Kuro King!!

This man is a God send for all Kuro owners! I had a few power surges at my home and my Kuro LX5090 developed some bad image retention and pinkish sparkling especially on white backgrounds. My Kuro is my baby, had it since 2009, and it would of hurt to have to bin it, so we took it to the Kuro King's, workshop. He immediately knew the solution and repaired it while we waited and now my Kuro performs perfectly again with strong sharp vivid images. I am so happy now. Thank you
