NO. Return for exchange. Green and Red Dots are Common with Akai/Viore. Google Viore 42 plasma and read. Same Company = Same TV = Same Problems

SOURCE: AKAI LCT2662N screen problems -distorted

that sounds like your LCD controller, since the LCD screen is so big, they will "split" the screen into 2 smaller screens, otherwise it would be so outrageously expensive to have one big massive lcd controller. Your lcd controller is most likely a two-in-one card though, meaning that there are 2 controllers on one board. You'll more than likely need a new controller card for your tv.

SOURCE: poor picture quality in new Akai plasma TV

Try putting a fan on the back of the tv to see if it is getting better. If it does then you probally have a board that is overheating. If that is the case then CAREFULLY !!! remove the back and place where you can turn on and safely access the open back NO TOUCHING STUFF !!! Mabey lay it face down on a glass table or lay it on a table with 25% hanging over the edge to see the screen. Then take a COLD blow dryer and blow it on the boards to find out which one makes it get better. If one does then it will probally be your problem board. Make extremely sure that is the one before removing it by blowing from all angles on the boards around it without air hitting the suposed problem board. Then try a little hot air to see if that starts the problem on that board so you can be sure. Of course check the surrounding and offending board several times to be sure before removing.

SOURCE: akai lct2701td, flat screen tv won't turn on.

Oh Dear. I had the same problem!! The Akai televisons are not well engineered-meaning that they tried to put too much in a little package. The problem is that the power supply is malfunctioning"supposedly". But I believe that the sad truth is that the whole motherboard is malfunctioning. I can suggest a few TEMPORARY solutions but they too are not guaranteed to work!
1. Bring the tv to a repair shop and tell them to check the power supply. If it is faulty -have it exchanged and it will work for <2 weeks.
2. Literally "bend" the television in multiple directions to find a sweet spot where the screen turns on.( wait for the diode tu tur green before doing this) this will slightly bend the motherboard in hopes of agitating it to turn the screen/bulbs on.

I am terribly sorry that you too have this ridiculous problem!!!!!! :-(
Good Luck!!! I am crossing my fingers for you!!

I could hear the volume but no picture

If you have perfect audio and video from a DVD player, then your TV is OK. So, what is it then? I have found that, with my service provider constantly updating their HD receiver for increased energy efficiencies, the receiver now no longer has the 'push' required to get the video up to the screen. For success, I would turn the Receiver 'off' then back 'on' and the resultant 'shot' of energy seemed to push the video enough to get the image going. New TV's are ever more energy efficient (that's why the Providers will often off a 'free' new TV if you go with their service... so their HD stuff will work and they test using their provided TV.

Appear the high voltage don't is generated, may be the power supply internal, normaly is caused by failure the current-down and overload.

Our AKAI is a 42'. The screen displays squares of color, not the picture, no matter what input is selected, cable or Blueray. We do hear sound but the picture is messed up. Yesterday after it was on for a...

check cables, make sure all are undamaged and secure. Try troubleshooting different sources of video input (ex. dvd players, satellite boxes, game consoles). If you find a specific device to be the issue and not the tv then post a new problem. Otherwise it is possible that your tv has damaged hardware and requires maintenance and/or replacement.

Picture goes blank but audio on

If you are using component cables to connect your HD box to TV. Make sure your connections are tight. You should make the colors match up. Green, Red, Blue. Check on both TV and HD box. Make sure HD pox is powered on. Make sure to select TV input to Component 1 or whichever you are using. If this doesn't work you may need to call and have COX refresh the HD box. This can be done over the phone. This will make sure you are receiving and sending the proper signal level. Good luck
