Question about Akai PDP4294 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
People faces are green with no red or yellow color on screen - only black, white, green, blue
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.

Unplug your TV for a while and see fi you are getting the same issues after you plug it in. If it works after, then you have an overheating issue with the power supply or main board.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

It sounds like the problem one can have from a weak signal.
This kind of problem is normally associated with the use of an antenna which is receiving the primary signal, then a secondary one that is being reflected to you from a distance; an echo.
The first signal is the one you are seeing best, then from some distance, the same signal is being sent back to you with a time delay of a few microseconds causing a shift in the images.
A repositioning of the antenna orientation is the only solution.
If you are on cable, you will need to call them and holler about the signal quality. Thinking this through, I don't think this can happen when receiving satellite signals since the antenna is pointed toward the sky and the chances of any noticeable reflection are close to nil.

SOURCE: I have lost the red
Hi, well yes you are off to the repair shop, most likely you have lost your Red "Drive" or indeed a "Gun" may have faulted or the driving circuit, or the PSU. I have seen this many times in my shop, but issues like this simply must be troubleshot to identify the exact cause as many symptoms appear the same but have differing faults and causes..
Below is a link for your user manual. http://www.retrevo.com/support/Akai-LCT3285TA-TVs-manual/id/741bh147/t/2/
now to get the best deal with a repair, and is my professional recommendation, what you should do is get a "Quote" for repair, from, an, Approved Service Center, this point is very important for a good result, Always contact, their local, "Head Office" Akai, in your case. Now, when you get the information you want, from them, Akai, and you get the "Quote" well, then you can decide as to repair of replacement. The reason we want an approved agent, is that way, all the engineers are trained on their own brand sets, they have seen almost all faults, and will get the job done quicker, and for less cost, and usually have original parts on hand, also sometimes, there has been a service bulletin in issued and sometimes, rarely, the repair may be subsided or even free.
