Question about Akai PDP4206EA Television
I recently had a brown out here at home and even though my plasma TV
was connected to one of the those el cheapo 2000 joule surge protectors, it still fried the Main Board. The TV blanked out for a minute and
when it came to, the picture was blood red. I had troubleshooted and issue similar to this when I bout it and it turned out to be the Main Board (with the cpu). Apparently the flash had become corrupt and was providing incorrect information to the CPU. I suspect the Flash has become
corrupt again, but the backup I made using my Willem doesn't seem to
work now. I have tried a few backups that I have mand and Removing, programing, and resoldering this the flash is really
taxing on the PCB and chip and now it won't even turn on. I get a steady green
power light on the front of the TV, but hitting the power button or the
remote doesn't seem to put things in motion. I suspect the chip has given out and it won't boot the CPU.
Has anyone seen anything like this? Did I kill something else? Does anyone have a backup flash that they can email me for an Akai pdp4206ea? Does anyone have a replacement Main Board? Would you be willing to trade? I have a working video board for my Akai pdp4206ea (I bought it during troubleshooting a B/W issue with this same tv and it turned out that it wasn't the problem). I can overnight the part to you if you wish.
