Question about Akai PDP4290 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
Original Post Under Different Topical Heading/Caption I have a similar, but different problem, than the one described under this heading. I own a AKAI 42 in. Plasma Television (Model PDP4290) that is three (3) years old (purchased Nov. 2003). The screen produces about twenty (20) green lines on the left side (while facing screen) when the background image is other than blue. I have a DVD player plugged in as component 1, and cable television signal running through a VCR which is then plugged into the video in plug. The green lines appear when receiving signal from either source (i.e., cable, VCR or DVD). Any suggestions?

Try putting a fan on the back of the tv to see if it is getting better. If it does then you probally have a board that is overheating. If that is the case then CAREFULLY !!! remove the back and place where you can turn on and safely access the open back NO TOUCHING STUFF !!! Mabey lay it face down on a glass table or lay it on a table with 25% hanging over the edge to see the screen. Then take a COLD blow dryer and blow it on the boards to find out which one makes it get better. If one does then it will probally be your problem board. Make extremely sure that is the one before removing it by blowing from all angles on the boards around it without air hitting the suposed problem board. Then try a little hot air to see if that starts the problem on that board so you can be sure. Of course check the surrounding and offending board several times to be sure before removing.
