Question about Akai PDP4294 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television

2 Answers

Defective Picture, Sound ok

Last week the TV would come on and perform normally, with ocasional flashes and problems as described below. Each day normal periods of good operation became shorter and shorter.

Now the screen comes on greenish color, w/poor detail. After a few minutes the detail goes away leaving a green, red or white screen. Sound good always. The tuner and video inputs both do the same. However the menu, channel number, and stereo/mono displays are always good.
The unit is 4.5 years old and has provided very good service.
Thanks, David Hauck, dd3834@earthlink.net

It can be a problem with one of the sustain boards, or with the power board, or with one of the video signal board you should have it checked by a techincian

You will most likely need both convergence IC's in your TV. Need a service call.

Sound , but no picture


It sounds like the problem is in the circuit board. The TV should go in for professional repair - electric shock is no fun. Good luck.

The most possible problem is that the machine have build up scale both in boiler and in pipe system. Your are still in good chance to solve it easily since it operates normal by performing a good descaling of the machine. You can buy a very good product posibly from ebay like the Urnex DEZCAL which is an excelent descaler and if you perform a couple of descling procedures in a period of one week your machine will perfom better and better.

Freezer & fridge warms up on average every 6-8 weeks. Remedy turn off and leave 24 plus hours with doors open. On turning on the fridge and freezer cool down again to operating temperature....


Good day,
That's too long a period, for a normal. defrost system failure.
You'll have to wait until it quits, then remove the rear panel and look for ice (not frost) building up somewhere in the freezer compartment.
I have solved similar problems on this model, by replacing the defrost thermostat with a GE 60 degree thermostat, and a WR9X330 GE 6 hour defrost timer to get this model to defrost completely.

It's also possible that the refrigerant charge is slightly low, causing the defrost thermostat not to reach a cold enough temperature to perform a good defrost cycle. (building ice over a long period of time).

Make sure Freon 12 was used when replacing the compressor.
Some substitutes caused the evaporator coil to act as if it was
slightly low on charge.

Picture goes off, red light blinks 7 times, sound quality is not affected.


Any malfunction associated with a flashing light usually indicates a circuit problem or defective component. Unfortunately, the days of taking off the back cover of your TV and replacing a defective tube or fuse are long gone. Proper servicing will require troubleshooting procedures that can only be performed by a qualified electronic repair facility or professional television repair person. Ask for an estimate and a realistic appraisal of whether the set can be adequately fixed. Depending on the age and condition of your TV it may not be cost effective to repair.
