    The set when turned on does not stay on. The Akai logo comes up the number 32 then it shuts down almost immediately in a about 2 sec.

It might be a problem in the set's power supply. This could be an affordable fix, but probably not cheap. A lot depends on where you live in relation to a repair facility. Google shows a lot of electronics companies around the country advertising in-home repair. If the problem is in the plasma display module, it might not be worth repairing.

RCA TV. No picture yet has sound.

I unplugged the tv and the cable box and pulled out the battery of controls for 12 hours. When I turn on again, the tv and cable box back to normal.

Screen goes black but still sound

This is inverter or backlighting problem. Can you try switching it on and off quickly for a couple of times and tell me if these '2 seconds' get any longer'. If picture stays longer and longer before shutting down, one lamp needs replaced-if not, please replace inverter board
