    I have the same problem with the same model and brand. It turned on this morning-no problems, then I turned it off for about an hour. I came back to turn it on and the remote didn't operate the tv. When I finally got it on manually, the AKAI blue screen logo came on, then the cable resolution in the upper right came on and I had volume for a half second, then nothing. It turned off automatically, but then it gets weird. After shutting off, it starts the cycle all over again by turning on. rinse, wash and repeat. What the eff? I have already had to make a repair to the tv before and now this? Don't buy this product or brand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't care about the cost-it's not worth the frustration; there's a reason why sony can charge more.

Yeah. I had the same problem. About 1 month ago my AKAI PDP4273M1 TV began turning off...then on. I happened to stumble on a temporary solution. I held one of the buttons down on the t.v. without letting go...and what do you know....the tv stayed on. So I rigged it to where the button (the "source" button) stayed in and I stuck a small object into the hole next to it (a small nail in my case). The catch is you have to use the remote becase none of the buttons on the tv work. got that fixed and then today my picture gave out about 75 percent. What a Piece of S%#* TV. That is all I can say. My 2 1/2 year old TV is a POS and is going into the dump. Can you say hello to a new VIZIO. Hope that helps. Remember. NEVER BUY AKAI TV PRODUCTS AGAIN!!!!!

Akai 42 plasma controller can not be programed tried every code

i just had this same problem with my 42" akai plasma and after getting no help no where i finally figured it out on my own. The model i have is a PDP42Z5TA but my guess it will work with yours also.if your remote is like mine there should be a "set" button somewhere up at the the top.hold this down till the "tv" button goes solid red. with the tv on or off keep pressing the power button till the tv turns on or off( dont go too fast) or you can pass it up easily cause when the tv does turn on or off you have to hit enter to lock it in.

Sound but no picture.

Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the TV, and replugging it after 4 hours have passed. This technique reprograms the electronics, to a certain extent. If things do not improve after you replug it, then your TV has a more serious problem, that requires the attention of a repairman.
