You may both have a power supply problem.
The PS in plasma TVs is more complex than in LCD sets and therefore more likely to fail but the #2 asker has an LCD set but still may have a failed supply.
No sound; no picture= something they have in common.

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.

SOURCE: my remote for my akai pdp42z5ta stopped working

Yes, I can help you either fix the original or get you a brand new one. By the way, did you change the batteries. I know you did, but this procedure is the first step. If you change the batteries and the remote doesn't work, the problem can be inside the remote, specially if it happen to be dropped. Or the sensor in front the tv may be bad if does not respond to the remote. The best way to check the remote control is with infrared checker, an special equipment I have at the shop. I can ckeck it with that for you and fix it as well. Please e-mail me at Stevebuy31@hotmail.com

I could hear the volume but no picture


If you have perfect audio and video from a DVD player, then your TV is OK. So, what is it then? I have found that, with my service provider constantly updating their HD receiver for increased energy efficiencies, the receiver now no longer has the 'push' required to get the video up to the screen. For success, I would turn the Receiver 'off' then back 'on' and the resultant 'shot' of energy seemed to push the video enough to get the image going. New TV's are ever more energy efficient (that's why the Providers will often off a 'free' new TV if you go with their service... so their HD stuff will work and they test using their provided TV.

Akai 42' flatscreen i turn the power on the green indicator lights up and in i hear a click but i dont get a picture no other functions work such as volume,input,or channel buttons. is it my main board or...


On the power supply board there is a VA & VS voltage that you need to check to see if they are reading right. On the inside of the panel there is a lable that will tell you what the Voltages should be for VA & VS. If they are ok, they you probabaly have a bad Y board, if the votages are wrong then you need to replace the power supply. And check for bulged caps on power supply too.

what do you have connected? you can try withe basics. if you can try a rg-6 cable into the f connector. then try a dvd on video 1 and change the input to input 1 and see. if nothing else try a hard reboot
thats unpluging the tv for about 2 min. then reconnect.
