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

1 Answer

I have a 50" Magnavox TV, Model # 50MF321D/37. I installed the software upgrade, it worked fine for about a day or so. Now, it powers on and stays on, but there is no picture, no sound, no display, nothing.

    I have the same problem...I just did the software update also a couple of days ago and now tv does not want to come on. The green power button is on but no picture. I had to unplug the tv over and over. I have had to play a movie using the dvd player and then come back to reg. tv in order to have the tv come back on. Once I turn the tv off I have do the process of using the dvd player again in order to the tv to show a picture. I think this could be a class action lawsuit. Magnavox or Phillips claim no knowledge of this matter. I purchased this 08/06/06 for over 2K. I am looking for something to be done because I not about to fork over another 400-700 to have this matter taken care of. Those who have the same issue I will be contacting an Atty. My e-mail is keith_miller@bellsouth.net

You probably have a different issue that is not related to the software update. Just as an FYI, software updates on TV's should never be done unless they are to fix a specific issue that you are having with your TV. Unlike software updates on a computer. you cannot roll back to a previous version.

Magnavox 42 inch flat panel cannot get a picture


TV may need software upgrade. Go to menu, find instalation, find software upgrade, find. If version is bellow FL2D-r23 (#23) TV needs upgrade.
Get upgrade on the internet onto a USB flash drive. The file may be a ZIP file, if so, unzip to a folder in PC then put the file to the USB drive.
Turn TV on, plug in the USB drive, wait til the upgrade is finished. Unplug USB drive, turn TV off w/remote.
The TV will then turn on by its self and the upgrade is complete.
Hope this works

Magnavox 50" plasma Won't Power on/Shut's off/Blinking red LED


The above fix, listed by Tom saved us!! We did as instructed and took off the back of our 50 inch Magnavox plasma tv. We were not sure what we were looking for so we googled capacitator (image) & there was a photo of a fried capacitator! Sure enough we noticed ours were "fried", we took out the board and went to an electronic supply store, bought the 2 capacitators ($2.00 each!!) and then found someone who did tv repair to sauter the new capacitators onto the board. (It is important someone who know how to sauter and recognizes polarity do do this for you) All in all we fixed this following the above instructions for $34.00 and our time. For a month we were told to spend hundreds getting a new power board!
Kudos to you Tom & thanks so much!!
