    TV automatically turns off. I turn it back on, and it turns off again. Happens every so often, and sometimes won't turn back on as well.

    My Akai PT5598HDTV is 4 years old. When I try to turn the set on there's no picture or sound, just a blinking red timer light. The timer blinks 9 times. Do you have any suggestions?

Just a thaught, I could be wrong, maybe a problem with the power button on the remote ? It might shut the TV off, and when you do keep pressing the remote button, the red light on the TV will keep flashing like that also. Ive seen this prob on a few other blogs, so seems to be pretty common. I know I like to keep the remote pointed at the TV all the time, maybe try pointing it away for a while, just to see.

    Id also try unpluggin the tv for a day.

    Or maybe the tv remote receiver is picking up an infared signal from another source or remote nearby.

    And my last shot in the dark would be the on/off button on the tv is sticking or defective.

    Otherwise Id say something major was wrong and the tv's tryin to tell us something.

Its busted. Try resetting it as a last resort, unplug the AC, wait 1 minute, then plug back in. If that doesn't work, its in need of professional service.

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.
