Question about Akai PDP4225M 42 in. Plasma Television
I just purchased the 42" Plasma PDP4225M and hooked it up correctly (using HDMI cable from my HD Cable Box and component cables from my DVD player). The picture is terrible from both the DVD and Cable box....it has green tinted lines and blotches all over the picture. When the screen goes black (like the split second when a program goes to commerical), you can see the green horizontal bars going across the entire screen all the way up and down the screen. Help!
I turn the tv on and the tint is off and I can't get it fixed. A friend told me it could be my vidoe card. Is that true?

I found the exact same issue...unhokked the composite board, problem went all away....had the same heat damage(looked like the board glazing was distorted), and everything is fine now. about 6 months since I fixed mine....local repair guys are clueless....

I have determined that mine had a problem with the composite input board. I was able to unhook the connections to this board inside the TV, after Akai, and the local repair guys couldn't figure it out....
The problem hasn't come back in a while, and since my setup is all HDMI/Component ins, I didn't affect me at all.
It looked like there was slight heat damage to the board, but not enough that it was caused by a design flaw, more like a manufacturing "accident".
