Unplug everything from the monitor, than push the on button for 30 seconds. Plug everything back in, and that should power it back up. I had the same problem, and apparently there was a build up of static electricity in my screen. Fixed it right away.

You can open it up and inspect the caps in the power supply first, if they look OK then you need to check to see if you do have 24vdc feeding the backlight inverter board, it can be that you have blown fuse on the inverter board.
You can read more about other people that try to repair it, http://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?p=45010

Hi there, well, let's back up a bit. The Capacitor that blew may have been in parallel with one or more and other caps could be suspected as bad or close to it. You can contact jatinah electronics for repair help, as control boards have seriously dangerous voltages and currents, live parts, and "Hot" grounds on motor power rails. Good luck

Why does my samsung plasma 550 have no picture?


It sounds like a capacitor blew in one of the internal circuit boards. A capacitor makes the pop you described, and techs actually refere to them as "being popped".

Loud pop, sounded like a gun shot, screen went black, sound wasn't affected P42 HDTV A 10


This sounds like the tripler for the lcd display, or a capacitor in the power supply board blew. You can replace them yourself if you can indentify the bad part(s), but this will require some disassembly to get at them, of course.
My suggestion would be to get a mobile repairman out to fix it. Many towns have them these days, and they will come to your place to fix it, and they're reasonable.
You can google "Tripler replacement" and get some information on it, if you elect to try to repair it yourself.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

TheTV made a loud pop and the screen went black. Now I have blinking red lights.


You probably blew up a capacitor. Unplug the television and open up the back. Check for bad caps. You'll probably find a puffy one. Check the fuses to see if they're blown. If you find a blown fuse, start looking for bad diodes or a bad transistor. If you don't know what I'm talking about then don't ruin a good television set by poking your nose inside and blowing something else up or end up zapping yourself when you touch the wrong thing. Take it to a professional and get it fixed. Good luck.

My monitor FPD2485W is unresponsive. It won't start.


This monitor is released in 2007, more likely to have failed components by now.
Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further.

Tv popped and went out


Pops' are never a good thing to hear especially from rear screen sets. Could be that one of the three CRT's went/impolded. Could also be a Capacitor that blew also. Might be best to call a RV repair shop that works on Akai's - I think Magnavox builds Akai's but that's a guess.
