Mine started doing the same thing to me randomly this afternoon. It worked fine this morning but now the backlight wont light up no matter what. I checked the settings and everything.... it's the same as yours... I can barely see the screen its like it is idle and hasn't been touched. I've turned if off and on numerous times and nothing helps
I'm sorry but we don't repair tvs, we can recommend you to a repair facility or direct you to the part that you need and then let you know how to replace it. Please let me know if you want us to find a part number or a place and we will find it for you
IF it is not an adaptor-powered screen, try to exchange the tripol-power cord and try again. Else you may have to rely on warranty/ return it to where you purchased it or ask electronics dealer for support. If adaptor powered, buying a new one should be the last option, else you may end up with a broke monitor and two working adaptors!
I had a similar problem when there was a power outage or the lights went briefly out. I unplugged the TV and left it for a few days/weeks and then plugged it in and the TV worked. I think newer TVs should be treated like a home computer and put them on surge protectors.
My 32" Akai did the same thing. It was working fine, I tried everything but nothing worked. Took it to a reapairman and it was the power supply. He said that they were very known to have this problem. I had the system attached to a UPS battery backup and it made not difference.
Hello drifter,The design of the tv enables the auto search to detect any input signal you have selected. It could be TV (off air, video signals etc) so just switch on whatever inputs to the akai plasma befote you switch the Akai plasma on and let it do the work for you. just relax and watch the tv.
1. switch on the input eg video deck, DVD, VCD, or satellite dish.
2. switch on your AKAI PLASMA and
3. wait for the akai to search for your input signals. TRy this simple procedure and if it doesnt work just post back the message.
The problem is the electrolytic caps in the switch mode power supply. They are located on the output side of the supply board. You can tell which ones are bad by the "bulge" on the top of each cap. All need to be replaced..
