Re: Replace tv screen
You have just found out why the plasma sets are fading from the market.
I think you will find the replacement cost will make the set an uneconomical repair and you will then have the same thing happen again.
Since Akai is so poor on product support, they may not even have the actual part 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.

I am assuming this is a Plasma TV? If so, Once an image is burned into the screen,there is now way to remove it. There are some ways to remove temp burn-in images like playing a white screen,and a screen wipe program. But,this only helps if you see a burn-in after watching the same image for a few hours. If the image has been played over a long period of time. "Like a store demo, security camera, ESPN like at a bar" There is no repair for this. And the screen will need to be replaced,and the cost of the replacement is sometimes more than buying a new TV. Sorry to have to give you this bad news. If you bought a extended war.? It may cover the burn-in. Some warranties
will cover that. It is worth a try.
For a 58" screen, it's almost certainly worth repairing. If I remember correctly, it's the DSP. Take it to a local repair shop, and let them know you've been told to check the digital signal processor, and see what they can do for you. It may need to be programmed, or replaced.
No,only way to placed the Plasma screen panel,that not an option,because replaced the Plama screen panel will cost the same as a new tv.Sorry have to live with the burn in image or buy a another tv,buy a LCD or a LED tv this time,not as bright and that good with cinamax movies,like a Plasma tvs,but u will not have burn in easy as a Plama tv.
When an image is burnt in to screen it is always there you just dont see it when you watch tv because of the changing video. On some sets you can burn the image out by using a all white screen, from a signal generator or from the service menu, turning the brightness all the way up and letting it play for 24 hours. Here are some websites that have software that is supposed to erase burn-in images, but you would have to hook tv to a computer, unless it can be copied to a dvd and played through a DVD player. Have not used it myself so not sure how or if it works. Be careful not to cause any more damage to screen. A new screen can cost a few hundred to over a thousand dollars to replace. Set should be taken to a panasonic repair shop to try burning it out with white screen approach, so if they damage it they have to fix it.
I know it seems like it is a rip off but the diagnoses is probably right. It may well be caused by the digital controller that is mounted to the LCD Panel and is not sold separately so you need to replace the entire Panel whether the Panel it- self is bad or not. Cost of the LCD Panels are expensive and get much more expensive as the size of the screen gets larger. Sorry of the bad news.
Hey gallagher1, While what you're seeing may be image burn, it generally only occurs when the same images are displayed on a screen for a prolonged period of time. Static images like letterbox formatting, banner scrolls (from TV stations like CNN), test patterns and the backgrounds from some video games have all been known to cause image burn, but most retail stores should know to take precautions against this kind of damage in their display/open-box models. To make sure what you're seeing isn't simply the residue from an adhesive sticker or placard, I'd first suggest cleaning the screen with a damp, lint-free (microfiber) cloth. Make sure to wring any excess water out of the cloth before wiping the screen, and never spray water directly onto the screen's surface. You may also want to try using a commercial TV screen cleaning kit, but remember to never use household cleaners like Windex or Goo Gone on the screen as they may cause damage to LCD and plasma displays. If cleaning doesn't help, this specific model appears to be equipped with a feature called Image Sticking Minimalization (ISM). According to information provided by the manufacturer, you should be able to access this feature by pressing the "Menu" button on your remote control and selecting the "Option" menu. Under "ISM Method" there should be four different options: Normal, White Wash, Orbiter, and Inversion. Each of these methods slightly alters how images are displayed to prevent - and possibly remove - any kind of image burn. If you're not quite sure how to use these features, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation. You should also be able to find step-by-step instructions on how to use ISM by visiting the following webpage: http://us.lge.com/download/product/file/1000001026/42PC3D_Manual.pdf Hope this helps you out.
