Question about Akai PDP-4216M 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

I have A three year old AKAI 42 inch plasma tv---PDP4273M1---Mostly used as PC monitor. It was working just fine when I turned it off. When turned back on the next day, the on indicator light came on and it clicked and it had no display at all. There was not any storms or lightning during that time. What could cause this?

Check to see what input setting the tv is on. It could still be looking for a signal from the pc input connection and no pc is hooked up thus getting no signal. Have the device you are trying to display on the tv connected and turned on and cycle through the inputs on the tv until you get a signal.

My tv has sound but no picture its an akai model pdp4206em1


Try unplugging it for an hour or so or try change sources , if the computer ever fell asleep while it was plugged in it is possible it triggered a sleep mode in the tv. Most will do such a thing. It is doubtful that the computer caused any damage to it but i would advise against using a plasma tv as a computer monitor because burn in WILL eventually occur with a static image left on the screen constantly.

I have a Sylvania 42 inch Plasma HD TV. It is 3


Hello

Before taking this to a local repair person, I suggest you check with your cable provider. See if they are having trouble with their HD transmission and then have them test your lines. Out here in Arizona with have constant problems with HD due to heat, rodents and poor installations. Your DVR only recorded the problems that were on your set. If these prove fruitless then take the TV to a reputable repair person.

Good Luck

No picture anymore


I found one of these at the dump with the same issue. Bought a Z sustain board for $75 , replaced it and it works great. I plan on installing some PC style cooling fans in the cabinet as heat is what destroys these sets

Akai TV repeatedly turns off and on


Yeah. I had the same problem. About 1 month ago my AKAI PDP4273M1 TV began turning off...then on. I happened to stumble on a temporary solution. I held one of the buttons down on the t.v. without letting go...and what do you know....the tv stayed on. So I rigged it to where the button (the "source" button) stayed in and I stuck a small object into the hole next to it (a small nail in my case). The catch is you have to use the remote becase none of the buttons on the tv work. Wonderful...so...I got that fixed and then today my picture gave out about 75 percent. What a Piece of S%#* TV. That is all I can say. My 2 1/2 year old TV is a POS and is going into the dump. Can you say hello to a new VIZIO. Hope that helps. Remember. NEVER BUY AKAI TV PRODUCTS AGAIN!!!!!

Akai pdp4273m1 has sound but no picture


I also have the akai PDP4273M1 tv with power and no picture and I looked at the power supply board inside and found 1 of the FMG26S chips blown and I am looking into replacing this to see if that does it and if not do a search for SANKEN PSC10165B M and for approx 170.00 you can get a whole new power supply for it and its easy to put in..
