AKAI Plasma Screen

We have a AKAI plasma screen. It will not go on. Checked connections, all are ok. My husband is very good about taking things apart and fixing them but doesn't want to blindly open it up. Can you tell us what the problem could be?

Thanks,
Kelly

    No, there are no lights whatsoever. Nothing happens at all.

    Regarding your response to my problem with my Akai Pantalla Plasma -
    There is absolutely no lights at all when we try and turn it on either
    by the remote or on the unit itself.

    The model number is PDP4290



    Thanks you.

    Kelly

    no power means check your fuse.

    and try a different power socket


    even if not that we will have to open up the unit

Coating film on screen has a 'hole' after cleaning


Not panic!

I'm reading it and i did it again, to give you the advise. the plasma screen is glass that's sure, then:

The actual problem is really simple. because i remember my last jobs with plasma and this is actually a film protector the manufacture use when the part is not installed yet in the actual tv set.
  • Your husband is right. (but the plastic is like one or two inches inside the frame and is hold it by the frame and the screws attaching the display.
  • if the tv is under manufacture's warranty have them clean their mistake. call them and make them peel it off for you.
  • but if there is not any waranty on it. then the solution is as you can figure it out . Have some one who can actually take all parts apart and finally peel off this film and put anything back together as is now. to let the tv cristal clear at the front.

Screen will not appear


You have just found out why the plasma sets are fading from the market.
Both of you may have a power supply problem. The PS in plasma TVs is more complex than in LCD sets and therefore more likely to fail.

Since Akai is so poor on product support, they may not even have parts since that set was made by Samsung who also doesn't want to hear anything about them (their site doesn't recognize the Akai model number), you may be out of luck.

In researching Akai, I find large number of folks who will not buy any Akai anythings again.
This kind of performance is unusual for a Japanese company.

Akai Plasma PDP4273M with white block and green tint


I have the same problem with mine. I had a repair guy come by and take it apart. He said its either the video board ( about 500.00 ) or the buffer chips which on these tvs are connected to the screen which is not worth the money to fix.

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. recap 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 DON
