Question about Akai PDP42Z5TA 42 in. Plasma Television

2 Answers

I have a 3 year old Akai 42" plasma TV, model PDP4216M. It has developed a bright red, 2" wide line down the righthand side of the screen. What does this mean, and can it be repaired? The TV has not been abused in any way.

I had one red line at the beginning, then another one the same red, then couple months and green one. I fixed it by replacing one of the board inside (140$) and the problem is gone. The same model PDP4216M. Any questions e-mail me at kogut26@hotmail.com

Neon green line down right side of screen


I think you are developing a problem on the line output stage of the television. The first thing to do is LIGHTLY tap the side of the tv and see if this cures the problem. If you tap it say ten times and it comes and goes then the problem is dry solder joints. Otherwise I would suspect a faulty component on the line output stage probably the transistor or the transformer. If you can check these faults for yourself otherwise find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

Blue Vertical Line- Akai PDP4298ED


I have an Akai PDP4273M that developed the same problem. Checking around some of the av forums, I found a couple of threads that indicated it could be dust or bad contact around the ribbon cable connections on the video control board. I removed the back, loosened the ribbon cables on the board and used my small compressor with an air gun to blow out the dust all around the board and the ribbon connectors. Reconnected everything, turned on tv and stripe did not come back. Problem fixed! Nice and cheap solution.
