Question about Akai PDP4225M 42 in. Plasma Television
Hi, was there a resolution to this? I am experiencing the same problem with LCT3285TA purchased at Radio Shack in Media, PA. Radio Shack has refused to service the unit and has put me over to Akai for the manufacturer's warranty. I'd like to know what to expect and if this problem with the Logo coming up and the unit shutting off/restarting can be easily fixed, thanks.

This is not a Samsung/Akai tv, but it is a cheap Chinese "counterfeit" tv. Here is the makers' info:

I bought one of these tv's at a thrift store and it had the same problem, orange light blinking and static sound coming out of the speakers, no video at all.
The problem was the power supply board, this power supply has multiple outputs that feed the circuitry, 12V, 24v, 5V.
There was nine electrolitic capacitors I had to replace to fix it, all of them were bulged they are easy to spot, I measure one of them that was supposed to measure 1000uF but measured only 65uF. you can buy these from digikey for about 50 cents each, they need to be rated at 105 deg c and the profile has to be below the heat sink otherwise they will hit the top of the heat sink, the spacing between the leads has to be 5mm so they fit in the pcb. I replaced 3 1000uF/25v, 3 470uF/16v and 3 1000uF/16v and that fixed the problem, I bought this tv broken for 100 bucks fixed it with 6 bucks.
Good luck, don't perform repair if you are not familiar with dangerous AC voltage inside the TV.

SOURCE: VIDEO BOARD
Your tv is going into an error protection mode upon startup. The problem is probably not the video board. When the tv starts, it checks with the cpu to confrim voltages, if a voltage is off or there is a short somwhere, it will prevent the tv from starting up by clicking the relays to power off the high voltage of the tv. The problem could be the power supply, zsus board or ysus. Its hard to say without opening up the back of the set and testing some stuff with the meter, but normally its just a shorted cap, worst case you blew out a fet.. But easy to find if you know what your looking for.
