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.

My samsung smart tv hdmi ports do not work anymore


Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

You read the manual and it will tell you, except in your case it won't as it is not a Smart TV with internet capability. It is a plain and simple television.
