    I Have the same problem, the set is about three years old. I was watching it and suddenly the picture went out; the sound works fine but no picture or menu viewing capability. I tried unplugging it and waiting then turning it back on, still no picture, just sound.

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.

Breaking down after 3 years is about right for LCD TV. It sounds like the T-CON board has gone out. Does the on screen menu look normal?

Shaky/Unstable Picture


This is power supply issue, one or more of your filter capacitors either bursted and/Or over heats (this is why it becomes better when system cools down after turning it off for 1/2 hour..You have two choices.1. buy a replacement power supply may set you back a couple hundred dollars but it will be plug and play. 2nd you can replace these filter capacitors make sure the can handle 105 deg celsius not the 85 deg. celsius, if you know how to trace the bad ones and desolder and solder new ones on the power supply board, or hire a techinician to replace them for you. Good Luck...

Screen went out


This sounds to me that you blew a fuse, or something wrong with the mainboard. im no expert, by any means...Have you taken up the courage to open it up? there is about 40 screws, just draw diagrams and such where it goes.. also, there are 2 small screws by where the computer and dhmi digit port are (like your comp at home) AND also the nut on the coax. after this, it's home freee. power is right on top middle. check out my other post for pics of it...Hope this helps!

No picture ; no sound


the red blinking light usually has a pattern that gives you a code to the possible problem.
Maybe you have a bad power supply board. You have to open the panel and do a few tests on the power supply's outputs to be sure.
It produces a variety of voltages for different parts of the tv ie. the plasma display panel and the audio system. The components supplying power to the audio system may have failed a year ago and recently the pdp.

plasma tv's are expensive to repair, most of the time you can get a better tv for the same price. You can reduce that cost by learning and troubleshooting it yourself.

It is most likely a problem with the tuner, I would contact the place you purchased it or your nearest repair shop.

I had the same problem, but I had no sound at all. The power indicator light was flashing green. I tried to unplug the unit and plug it back in, but the light then was red briefly, turned orange then flashing green. What I did to solve the problem was to unplug the set and leave it for a few minutes then plug it back in and hit the front power switch at the same time. Voila! It started working again. Good luck solving this.
