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...

The power supply most likely failed on your LCD.
How old is your LCD?

Akai LCT 2701 TD - Red Blinking lIngt

The only solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to

Flashing RED Light

Our AKAI also shut off & the red light started to no help from AKAI, but did from COSTCO. We bought the set before the 90 day warranty they have in place now, so they referred us to COSTCO Concierge Services: 1-866-861-0450. We were referred to a repair service & after discovering what the problem was found out that AKAI not longer has parts for this model. COSTCO replaced our TV---talk about satisfaction guaranteed.

Hello genetics2003,

I think that this is a power supply problem. I would suggest that you get a qualified TV technician to troubleshoot this issue.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

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
