    I have the same problem. I have an Akai pdp4294 plasma display, and it makes a clicking noise when I plug it in, every couple of seconds until I unplug it. Neither the sound or picture come on, just the clicking noise. Any suggestions would be excellent! Can someone help us??

The clicking sound is the relay switch on the power board, it could be the power board or the logic board

Why does my TV turn on and off by itself continuously when plugged in? (The remote is not being activated)

Hello, there are several things that it could be, but if the set comes on with a picture even for a couple of seconds, I would bet it's the main board failing. Part # is EBT48854401.....thanks

Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

Our akai pdp6065ta 60" plasma hd tv will not turn

Try the power button on the tv. Your remote may have dead batteries. If no luck still, it sounds like your power supply unit has gone south. Check for warranty before attempting to repair.

Laid tv face down on new rug to install legs,set back on table,sound,no picture.had picture 10 min prior

You should be seeing a validation that the TV is getting power. Like the lights are coming on, or you are hearing clicking when you plug in or power up the TV.

Make sure you have the TV’s power cord plug inserted all the way into the TV.

Also, make sure the TV's cord is plugged into a good power outlet. You may want to plug something else into the power outlet to be sure the outlet is good.

I don’t see how laying down the TV would cause this issue. Unless the TV was kind of dropped and or twisted to cause a board inside the TV to fracture/break.

I hope this information has helped you.

Good Luck.

My akai tv model lct3785ta will not turn on

Ok.. What is the status of the power LED at the front. Does it blink, change color a few seconds after its turned on? Do you notice any clicking noise from the set?

Please provide this info so that we can continue with the diagnosis.

Tv just makes clicking noise and doesn't turn on

I had the same problem. The power board for the on-off had to be replaced. The set is only 11 months old.

Buzzing Noise

It really sounds like your power supply is having problems with heat and not enough cooling inside your tv. You should if you can take the back cover off, also, and blow out all the lint and dust that has been drawn into the tv over time. Usually a couple of years is enough to build up dust and lint that can cause tiny static discharges inside your set. If there is a way of keeping your set cooler by placing it in a different position where there is sufficient room for air to circulate without restriction around it, that would help as well. The power supply the one with the power cord going to it from the inside should be your culprit. Good luck and God bless.

Can't get anything on the screen

Unplug the power cord from the TV set and leave it unplugged for 5 minutes. Plug the power cord back into the TV and turn it on. It should work. This is not an uncommon problem for the Akai line.

Samsung plasma

just to be sure, plug something else into the same wall socket to make sure you have power there. If you have power at the wall and the TV has a detachable power cord, try the TV power cord in your computer to see if it works. Otherwise you probably have a faulty power supply in the TV.
