SOURCE: 42" Toshiba Plasma TV no picture or sound

My experience with 42" plasma tv's with no picture or sound was a missing power supply voltage. On the power supply board check voltages on the plug. The voltages should be marked on the board,

I looked around for a power supply for you and turn up nothing. I see your problem. Nobody is selling. Best just to fix the board itself.
What I would do is get a Service Manual over the internet. is selling the Service Manual. Usually cost under $20. It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, schematics, test points, and part number lists. And most cases the new part cost less than $15 by searching on the internet with the part number.
It's possible that it's just a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. Cheaper than replacing the board.
I hope I solve the problem for you.

I have a LCT37Z4AD 37" TV w/ built in dvd player.

Have you tried inserting the DVD the other way round? The label might need to face the other direction. If not, it is a defective DVD drive.

Akai 27 inch Flat with built in DVD wont show picture/turn on

I just purchased a referbished Akia LCT37Z4AD. I plugged it in and it worked great but it still needed moved into place, on the entertainment center. Well it done the exact same thing while moving it. I simply Moved it around and it turned back on. I believe this is happening because of a hazard mechanizme that trips when moved or shacken. Something like an electric heater does when knocked over. Not 100% sure and I just started researching it so I will write back when I know the exact problem.

I also have the akai PDP4273M1 tv with power and no picture and I looked at the power supply board inside and found 1 of the FMG26S chips blown and I am looking into replacing this to see if that does it and if not do a search for SANKEN PSC10165B M and for approx 170.00 you can get a whole new power supply for it and its easy to put in..

Sound but no picture.

Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the TV, and replugging it after 4 hours have passed. This technique reprograms the electronics, to a certain extent. If things do not improve after you replug it, then your TV has a more serious problem, that requires the attention of a repairman.

Akai LCT2721AD - Power on - Sound on - Black screen (No Picture)

Ive reviewed and assisted anoter person who had a similar problem that caused the tv to malfunctioin simialr to yours. After doing some short research and the other person who had the problem, came to find out that 4 resistors failed on the main board causing this to happen. It also could be the backlight of your Plasma screen tv, or your Plasma screen itself is shot.

I would recomened that if you have no active warenty to give a visual inspection of the Tv, via removing the rear black plastic pannel to see if any of the corisponding chips have any burn marks or excessive heat stress. these items seem to be failing about the 12 month mark

Good luck

No picture or sound

what do you have connected? you can try withe basics. if you can try a rg-6 cable into the f connector. then try a dvd on video 1 and change the input to input 1 and see. if nothing else try a hard reboot
thats unpluging the tv for about 2 min. then reconnect.

No picture ; no sound

the red blinking light usually has a pattern that gives you a code to the possible problem.
Maybe you have a bad power supply board. You have to open the panel and do a few tests on the power supply's outputs to be sure.
It produces a variety of voltages for different parts of the tv ie. the plasma display panel and the audio system. The components supplying power to the audio system may have failed a year ago and recently the pdp.

plasma tv's are expensive to repair, most of the time you can get a better tv for the same price. You can reduce that cost by learning and troubleshooting it yourself.
