Both of you may have a power supply problem. The PS in plasma TVs is more complex than in LCD sets and therefore more likely to fail.

Since Akai is so poor on product support, they may not even have parts since that set was made by Samsung who also doesn't want to hear anything about them (their site doesn't recognize the Akai model number), you may be out of luck.

In researching Akai, I find large number of folks who will not buy any Akai anythings again.
This kind of performance is unusual for a Japanese company.

MY 42 in ultravision will not power up. The red stdby light is on but when turned on it does nothing. Just stays in stdby mode. Any suggestions? Power supply, fuse, etc...


Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

Have no stdby lite and wont turnon fuse is good have


This is a commaon problem. It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

RCA BIG SCREEN TV WONT TURN ON HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!


Try unplugging it for about 30-60 seconds, then plug it back in and before you turn it on, make sure there is a good video source going to the TV either from Satellite/Cable or a DVD player or something.

If this doesn't work, try unplugging it a bit longer and then plug it back in and try again. If it still does not work, you may have to take it in and get it serviced.

Usually when devices power themselves off like that, there's something wrong...

I hope this helps :) Good luck!

Best Regards,

James

Lamp problem or else?


You need to get the ballast repair kit #LSUC0002 and replace the parts to your ballast.

I have the exact same TV, did the above this past weekend, and the TV works like new.

You need to know how to solder though. It's not that hard.
