Akai 4290 power board

My akai 4290 has a power board aa98-00198aa that just went out and I can't find a repair part anywhere. Akai says they don't make that part any more. IEverthing inside is actually made by Samsung. Do you know how I can repair my TV?

    Thanks Jaime, but they have 0 available. I should have mentioned that I had already been to their site and emailed them as well. They responded with "sorry, can't help you". I also went to shopjimmy.com. Same answer there.

Yes, I'm sure the board is bad. I had the TV checked out by a local TV repair shop. I also opened the thing up to see if I could do anything with it and it's obvious that this is the board that has bitten the dust. The correct number for the board is AA98-00188A. I made a typo in the first post.

My akai pdp4225m 42inch plasma went out. when i turn it on i dont get the blue akai splash screen. just black. any ideas on what part to order?


You may have one or two problems, the power supply has failed or the Y-Sustain board has failed also. The more common problem is the Y-Substain board if fails the most in plasma television, next comes the power supply then the X-substain board, My best solution for you is to check the power supply first and consider ordering the Y-Board also, the PS is usually the center board and the Y-Board is to the left of it. The X- Board is on the right side..

Akai lct3201 power problem


I fixed my Akai LCT3201AD in about 30mins. using 3 small parts from Radio Shack. Once I got the back off, I found the power supply board (PSB), mine was part# MLT-169B rev1.2. I looked at the capacitors (caps.) first, because they are usually easy to diagnose. I noticed the caps. bubbled out on the top of the board (where all the cables connect to it). There is 3 of them in a row, positioned between the two large heatsinks. My guess is that the heatsinks are generating a LOT of heat over time, because of bad ventilation, and causing the caps. to fail.
I went to Radio Shack and found 3 caps. (only had 3 in stock). The original ones were 16V-1000uF, Radio Shack only carried 35V and 50V in the 1000uF caps., so I bought the 35V ones and headed home, I removed the old caps. from the board, and installed the new ones. The 35V caps, are a little bigger, so its a tighter fit on the board, be careful. It took longer to remove the back from the TV than it did to do the soldering. YouTube.com has excellent videos on how to de-solder caps. on PSB's.

Total money spent on repairs:
$1.59 ea for 3 Caps. (part# 272-1032) $4.77
$2.99 for new soldering iron tip + $2.99
$1.00 donation for St. Jude's + $1.00
Total including tax $9.30


So for less than $10, I did a repair that my local TV repair shop wanted $575 for. Online stores want anywhere from $100-$275 for a PSB. If I get another 2 yrs out of it that's well worth $10.

Akai Plasma TV's screen suddenly went blank -model PDP4294


Same thing for me. TV just turned off one day and won't come back on. LED flashes red. Someone said it's because a cooling fan went out. If I can't find someone to fix it I'll take it apart and tinker myself. 32" with dvd built in was barely over a year old.
