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

1 Answer

Shaky/Unstable Picture I have an Akai PDP4298ED1 that is 3 1/2 yrs old. This afternoon when I turned on the TV, the picture was shaky. I turned off the cable box and the DVD and checked the TV only...still shaky. Now we've been messing with it for about 30 minutes, and the picture has slowly stablized. Any ideas?

This is power supply issue, one or more of your filter capacitors either bursted and/Or over heats (this is why it becomes better when system cools down after turning it off for 1/2 hour..You have two choices.1. buy a replacement power supply may set you back a couple hundred dollars but it will be plug and play. 2nd you can replace these filter capacitors make sure the can handle 105 deg celsius not the 85 deg. celsius, if you know how to trace the bad ones and desolder and solder new ones on the power supply board, or hire a techinician to replace them for you. Good Luck...

Shaky distorted picture first 5 minutes when tv turned on.


Those have a problem with the capacitors going bad in power supply. Yes, it's worth having checked out because a GOOD shop will be able to fix the problem and not have to change a board. Very common problem with these sets. Mine did the same thing until I fixed it. Just do your homework when finding a shop. Call around and talk to other people in the area to see who they use etc.. Good luck. Could be a very simple repair. Have it checked.

If you have cable then put the cable wire directly in the TV, bypassing the cable box. If the pix is Ok it proves that the problem is the cable box. If the problem is still there then it proves the the TV needs parts inside.
