You need to check the screen voltages inside the unit is a sticker with the voltages on it, if all the voltages are normal, could be the panel is bad, if the voltages are low or nonexistant it could be the L-main,Main or Y-main board

Akai pdp4225m plasma has a green light but no sound and no pic. It was hooked up to a satilite reciever that blanked out also. Is there a reset button or a proceedure that might get the tv working again.

Hold a flashlight up to screen about 2 inches and see if you see a picture, and if so then it's the inverter board, you can check to see the price.

My 42 inch Akai is about 6 months old,, and is showing green where black should be..
BUt there is help for you all.. Call Verizon, sign up for their "Expert Care" program. it's $10.00 a month, and active after the third month.
with a $75.00 deductable. THey will fix or Replace (give you choice of three alternate models/brands).
Free services under this plan are adjustments, and One FREE remote per year!.
i recomend you sign up for this program, and after 90 days. call for service. They more than likely will replace your TV's.
This is what they did with mine..
it doesn't matter how old your TV is, the plan is applicable to all TV's in your household. So one plan, one monthly payment of $10.00, covers all the TV's you own!!

Akai Plasma TV's screen suddenly went blank -model PDP4294

Same thing for me. TV just turned off one day and won't come back on. LED flashes red. Someone said it's because a cooling fan went out. If I can't find someone to fix it I'll take it apart and tinker myself. 32" with dvd built in was barely over a year old.

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
