SOURCE: akai tv went blank

if you purchase a nine pin RS-232 connector cable with a male end and a female end you can hook your TV up to your computer. You can actually run a diagnostics program, and tests on your TV! The cable is like 5-10 dollars depending on length and is availible at most local computer stores. Just hook the cable up to the data port beside your PC input on the back of the TV. Good luck! (just saved you 100 tv repairman bill) and also check the bulb to make sure it is still good! The service guide to this TV has ALL the answers to your TV at www.nodevice.com , search in service manual and it has all the codes to reset your tv and counters for the bulb for $10..(for the manual that is you just download it to your computer then print it off)

SOURCE: PDP4247 Akai. Cablevision powered.

The tv goes into standby. 2 possible causes:
1 - the power source has aged and the voltage it delivers to the other components of the tv (in particular the control processor) is no longer stable: if the voltage drops below a certain level the processor just shuts down, putting the tv in standby. The power source will have to be checked and the aged components replaced (it's most likely the capacitors).
2 - there is a power fluctuation on the mains power line - the others don't shut down because they have a lower power necessity and they are able to coup with that.. The only way to test and fix that is to run the tv thru a UPS.

Hi..i am using compaq presario cq 40 and screen is flickering.i had it checked and they told me lcd is the problem but they didnt even bother to check.they just turned it on and they told me that i have to...


When it flickers, can you still see the text when the screen goes dark?
May have to use a bright flashlight set right on the display to see
the text on the screen beside where the light sits.
That will tell you if it's the backlight.

You can also look at a grazing angle into one of the edges to see if the
backlight is flickering when the display does.
When it's cold, does it start with a slight pinkish color? That can be
a sign of backlight going bad.
Anything interesting happen when you flex the cable by moving the screen?

I'm not saying it's impossible, but I've never seen software cause
consistent screen flicker. And if the vga port doesn't flicker, sw is
even less likely the problem.

If you bet the odds, you'd bet on a bad display cable.
Won't hurt to try replugging it.

If that doesn't help, then your monitor may be dying....

I have a pdp4247 plasma i have a 3" white line down the center /w


there are no bulbs in plasma tv's. the problem is most likely a bad video board (what converts the digital input to usable picture for the screen) it will need to be replaced, probably better to get a new tv.

No signal on monitor


Do you have another monitor to test your computer? Looks like a surge went into the computer display and damaged the video card.

Check if this occurs regardless what the source of the signal, whether it is DVD or cable or a playstation. You can also check if the Menu flickers as well. If the menu does not flicker along with the picture it could be a problem with the source, probably your with the cable box or the port where it goes to on your tv
