50" Akai Plasma Power Problems

I was watching my tv and it just went blank. I got up to turn it off and the control does nothing. The power lights are still on and the screen switches between a black and light grey screen and the tv will not turn off unless it is unplugged. As soon as you plug it back in it comes on and will not go off. Any help?

It's obvious that the power supply failed. The most common parts in a power supply are a thermistor or a voltage rectifier, possibly even a voltage regulator. diodes or resistors can act as fuses too. A ringing sound can come from a fixed coil that isn't kept still with enough epoxy. Hope this helps.

Our akai pdp6065ta 60" plasma hd tv will not turn

Try the power button on the tv. Your remote may have dead batteries. If no luck still, it sounds like your power supply unit has gone south. Check for warranty before attempting to repair.

Trys to power up makes Buzz, then nothing but light stays green.

those vizio plasma have a lot of problems, its still most likely the Ysus board, but it will have to be tested to know for sure. If you bought it at coctco you are in luck, if bought a couple of years ago they will give you a full refund. you can try replacing it yourself by checking or ebay

Akai Plasma TV's screen suddenly went blank -model PDP4294

Same thing for me. TV just turned off one day and won't come back on. LED flashes red. Someone said it's because a cooling fan went out. If I can't find someone to fix it I'll take it apart and tinker myself. 32" with dvd built in was barely over a year old.
