    exact same problem. I plug it in and the light turns red, then I turn it on and the light turns green and makes "the click noise" but the screen is black. The person I got it from said that it has been sitting in storage for a few months....Is it worth fixing cuz I really want to keep the tv

My proscan TV was working fine. then the video went and now no audio.. it lights up briefly when u turn on. then screen goes dark.. is this fixable or better to get a new tv..It is only 3 years old


I believe it's fixable! Take a look on your video and audio cables (behind the TV, the red, yellow and white ones). They must have a problem. Already happened to me!
I hope I've helped...

RED LIGHT FLASHES 10 TIMES BUT WILL NOT TURN ON!


There might really be a problem with the unit. Try unplugging it out of the power outlet and plug it back in after 30 seconds. If your using a power box (voltage regulator), try plugging it directly to the outlet. If all nothing happens, see a local tv tech in your area. The unit could be damaged.

No picture ; no sound


the red blinking light usually has a pattern that gives you a code to the possible problem.
Maybe you have a bad power supply board. You have to open the panel and do a few tests on the power supply's outputs to be sure.
It produces a variety of voltages for different parts of the tv ie. the plasma display panel and the audio system. The components supplying power to the audio system may have failed a year ago and recently the pdp.

plasma tv's are expensive to repair, most of the time you can get a better tv for the same price. You can reduce that cost by learning and troubleshooting it yourself.

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.

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
