We had rainbow pixels flashing around foreheads and other areas of the picture. We sent it in for warranty repair and they replaced the main board, the video board, and the power supply and it was still doing it. Called the warranty center and they sent us another model and that one lost the picture. Called again and they sent us still another model that finally worked. We ended up with 3 TVs, one with flashing pixels, one with no picture, and one that worked great.
Update, I just read these posts and did the factory reset with the menu button and now I have 2 perfectly good, working TVs - for the price of 1, Unbelievable.

NO. Return for exchange. Green and Red Dots are Common with Akai/Viore. Google Viore 42 plasma and read. Same Company = Same TV = Same Problems

Well at least you didn't pay for the TV. Your panel is defective. Cheaper to buy a TV than to fix.

Horizontal green bar on plasma tv, please help!


what it is, is on plasma screen tv's and LCD, they can get too cold, too hot, or over-powered. when any of this happens with just the right conditions, a thing called "dead-pixel" occurs. basically, the pixel will not respond any longer to tbhe electrical signal, so will not change with the rest of the screen. its basically broken

We have a Samsung Plasma TV we were watching this when the screen just went black we have the audio and all other functions but no picture? Can you help?


Each pixel of a plasma television contains a red, blue and green phosper. These immite a flourescent light individually to produce a nice bright picture. The odds of all of these pixels dying at the same time is so slight, it is likely to never happen before the return of Christ. So your black screen is another problem. There is an ultroviolet light emitting photo that causes these other photons to give off light. My diagnosis without actually inspecting your unit, is that your ultraviolet photon generator needs replacement. These usually last in an excess of ten years so while it may be a costly repair, if you otherwise are happy with your unit, you may want to repair it. Your only other option is to replace it.

TV turns on, but picture is red/black


you can try the main board and the control board first (this is the lesser of two evils), if that doesn't do it, it's definitely your sustainer board is bad.

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
