Akai Plasma PDP4273M with white block and green tint

My plasma when powered on will display a white block in the upper middle portion of the screen approximately 6 in by 3 in. The rest of the screen has a green tint to it. I was wondering what board may cause this and if there is a way of testing something or replacing a few components on the board that may solve the problem,

I have the same problem with mine. I had a repair guy come by and take it apart. He said its either the video board ( about 500.00 ) or the buffer chips which on these tvs are connected to the screen which is not worth the money to fix.

Green tint in picture


Are the lines completely through the screen or just the upper or lower part of the screen? If through the whole picture, lines in the picture of a plasma can be caused by a defective Main Logic Control board or a bad plasma panel. The panel, if available would be very expensive (cheaper to buy a new TV). If the lines are just on the upper or lower part of the screen then it is the upper or lower scan drive board. Here is a list of the parts for your TV.

My AKAI PDP4273M 42" Plasma has thin horizontal lines that flicker across the screen and then the picture jumps and flashes red and green distortions on the screen acts like interfearance of some sort if i...


This sounds like a loose solder joint, or overheated component. I know this may sound like a **** question, but have you tried tapping the TV to see if it goes away? If it does, you will need a tech to re solder the loose component. I have also seen this type of line and color bleed problem, believe it or not from poor cabling or loose connections.

46 toshiba plasma has red tint in back ground


If you can see the red tint with every input source and also in the On-Screen Menu, then this indicates that the Green phosphor is burning off of the screen faster than the Red and Blue. This is typical of plasma screens. Even if you dont watch a lot of golf or football, green is the most dominent color and burns out of the phosphur pits(pixels) faster than the Red and Blue. Take away green, you are left with Reddish looking screen and Pink whites. This is not repairable.
If the Menu looks nice and white, check your source cables.
Good luck

Green tint


It sounds like the color wheel has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is located behind the back panel... replacing a new colour wheel will solve ur problem

I just did a search on "pdp4273m" at the akai website.

The manual is easy to download from there product page about the plasma.

The manual is a PDF, so I hope you have something like adobe acrobat to read the file.
