The Power Supply Board is listed below. Please note, there are 2 models with the same beginning number (PDP4294). Verify your model number before selecting the Power Supply Board as each board is different depending on the model number.

See I cant cross that part number and I have all the boards sitting in front of me. That number is the akai part number, but not the actual number of the board. There are 2 boards that they call main in the service manual, the main control board which actually drives the panal, and the "main video board" which handels the video inputs and on screen displays.

PCB failure analysis
1. MAIN CONTROL : a. Abnormal noise on screen. b. No picture.
2. MAIN (video): a. Lacking color, Bad color scale.
b. No voice.
c. No picture but with signals output, OSD
and back light.

If you can determine which of the 2 boards is the problem, I can sell you a new replacement for $125 shipped.

Basicall....Control board is no picture at all.

Main board is no picture, but on screen displays work.

Akai pdp4225m plasma has a green light but no sound and no pic. It was hooked up to a satilite reciever that blanked out also. Is there a reset button or a proceedure that might get the tv working again.

Hold a flashlight up to screen about 2 inches and see if you see a picture, and if so then it's the inverter board, you can check to see the price.

No sound

The speakers on these are usually at the bottom and do come off the set. If they are on the TV make sure there are wires connecting the speakers to the back of the TV at the speaker terminals.

Hello drifter,The design of the tv enables the auto search to detect any input signal you have selected. It could be TV (off air, video signals etc) so just switch on whatever inputs to the akai plasma befote you switch the Akai plasma on and let it do the work for you. just relax and watch the tv. recap 1. switch on the input eg video deck, DVD, VCD, or satellite dish. 2. switch on your AKAI PLASMA and 3. wait for the akai to search for your input signals. TRy this simple procedure and if it doesnt work just post back the message. The DON
