    I did as you suggested and still have no pix. No video games are hooked up to the tv. HDMI is connecting cable box to tv.

Reset the cable/sat box and tv by turning them off, unplugging them both from the wall outlet, and replugging them after 30 seconds. See if you get pictue back when they get the correct handshake. also, make sure that there are no loose cables going into the TV or into the cable/sat box. You can try using a different type of connecting cord from the cable/sat box to the tv to make sure it is not a bad connecting cord.

What type of cable is connecting your cable/sat box to the TV? Is it HDMI?

Are you using a video game system on the plasma?

    There are a few possibilities. An HDMI cable is a standalone cable, which does not require any other type of cable for picture or sound. If you have a coaxial, s-video, or any other type of cable running from the cable/sat box to the TV, then unplug it. Also, make sure the television's input is set to HDMI1 or 2, depending on which hdmi port you have the hdmi cable plugged into - if you have another type of cable running into the tv carrying the audio signal, and the tv is not set for the HDMI1 or 2 channel, then you would get sound, no picture. Lastly, you would want to unplug the hdmi cable from the tv, let it sit for 15-20 seconds, and then plug it back in.



    Akai does not have a good tech support site, nor do they list a US toll-free number, so I can understand seeking help elsewhere. Try all of the things I mentioned, and if it is still not working get back with me.

Akai rear projection tv suddenly stopped working.


This set with Akai is actually made by Samsung (they own and use the Akai name).

If lamp light etc and you have heard a cracking sound it may be the color wheel.

You can remove the lamp and look where it faces--look and the wheel can be seen----is it shattered or missing plastic pieces?

The wheel commonly fails in this fashion and is turning at over 12,000 rpm. The set will detect if the wheel is stopped or moving too slow and just what you describe will happen.

Wheel is widely available and You Tube has video instructions for replacing them by model number.

Questions?

HELLO AM TOMMY BERRY FROM CLEVELAND HTS OHIO, I HAVE A 42 INCH HAIER PLASMA TV, THAT I BROUGHT 11 MONTHS AGO , IT WAS WORKING PERFECTLY UNTIL THIS EVENING WHEN I WAS CHANGING CHANNELS AND THE TV WENT BLANK...


Since you still have sound, you haven't accidentally switched the TV to a different source, so I would say that something has failed inside. If you have had it less than a year, place a service request and maybe they'll come over and ifx it before football season gets going

Akai large screen T.V. color problems


I have a similar problem with my AKAI 42 inch plasma, now my whole tv is purple. all you can do is contact akai warranty and have a service provider come out. but let me tell you, it is not an easy process if the service provider cannot help you. after the service provider told me that my tv was a goner. it took me two months to get a box to then send the tv back to an akai service center. now i have to wait a month or so, before i get it back. i wish you good luck.
