    green light stays on but tv wont turn on

  • droop418 Jun 14, 2008

    I just today bought an AKAI pdp42z5ta. I actually have a similar problem but not exactly the same. when i plug in the TV, the red light is on. I hit the power button once (on actual TV or remote) and the light turns green and then it seems like the TV freezes because the green light stays green, nothing displays and no buttons work on either the TV or the remote. I have to unplug the TV for any change. when I reconnect the power cord its the same scenario. please help!

TV won't turn on

It sounds that, the memory IC to your TV has damaged. This IC can be located very near to main system control IC. A very small one, with 8 solder terminals. Even though it is very small, function of it while the TV works is great. The work is a semi-skilled one, and you must have some knowledge in electronics to proceed.

** TV won't turn on.** No picture or sound. Please Help !

If the red light won't come on it is not getting power.First,try plugging it in to a different outlet,or unplug one of the gadgets you know is working and plug the tv in there.You are simply switching.If you know that there is power coming from the outlet and it still won't come on then you'll have to check the cord;don't go much farther than that without expert help.

The Power Light is Red

yeah, should stay red when unit is turned off, indicating there's power but it's doing nothing.

Per user manual:
Solid red - power off (standby mode)
blinking red - power off (now cooling)
blinking green - power on (preparing to light lamp)
solid green - power on

you can reset the tv to factory default settings , but before that I need more info ab manufacture date and purchase date you can find the first one on the back cover, if the tv has more than 5000 hrs of use problably the lamp, filter or fans can cause this problem, hope it helps you . let me know
