Question about Akai PDP4294 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
Have sound but no picture. 3 1/2 year old TV. Nothing on Owners Instructions Troubleshooting. Any Ideas?
I just had the set checked by a repairman and he said I need a new power board. He also said that he is having some difficulty locating a new power board for this set? Something to the effect that Samsung actually manufactured the set and that they also had taken over Akai.

Normally the sets have seperate power supplies for the input/main logic board and the HV which drives the panal (could be 2 parts on the same board). It sounds like you have a problem with the power board that drives the panal and HV. Check to see if any fuses are blown, if the fuse is blown, you can try replacing it, but if it continues to pop, then the main fets that drive the HV are shot and will need to be replaced.
