Question about Televison & Video
I have check the connections. The TV will not turn on manually or with the remote.
My AKAI PDP5016H 50" plasma TV
turned off suddenly and wouldn't come back on. When it happened we
heard a "Fizz" or "Pop" sound. I took it apart looking for a bad
capacitor or obviously fried component. When powered on, not even the
standby light would come on. When I couldn't find anything wrong I
called my electrician neighbor who looked at it with the power
connected and started looking at the fuses and started jiggling cables.
When he jiggled one of the cables, the TV came on! It was a bad cable connector on a power supply board. Look at the photos to see the problem:
The circled area is the problem board and on the second photo the arrow points to the power connector that was bad.
Disconnect the bad cable and find a connector that is identical (try RadioShack) and replace it.
Now I hate to tell you that the solution was to open up the back of my TV, connect the power, turn on the power switch, and start jiggling cables - But it was! You may get yourself electrocuted or worse by doing this, so BE CAREFUL!
Here's a clue: on the bad connector on my TV the connector itself had become discolored brown as if it had been cooked or something. Once the my electrician buddy jiggled that cable the LEDs on the main power board came on and the TV made it's characteristic "coming on" noise. In your instance it may be a fried cap or a lot of other things. Keep an eye out for anything that looks out of place or funky.
