Hi Roger, your Akai PDP4290 TV, is a Monitor, does not bring antenna or cable input
To be able to use it as a Channel Television, you must use a Decoder of some Television service and connect it to one of the inputs that your Akai has
I hope you can solve the problem
Greetings Franco Dosil

Good day!!!!


That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

You can find it in the TV system menu under 'display properties',

This was the cheapest Akai in its day. No Tuner, No Speakers, must use a surround sound or regular stereo amp for sound.
It also has the standard A/V input also.
Best to use a HD Box and RGB cables for best picture.

Hi



Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the audio with a DVD player or cable box. Also try using component cables if using a RCA component cable or vice versa. Check that all of the cables are plugged into the back of the TV & MUTE button is not pressed. Do a hard reset by unplugging the power cord for more than 4 hours and power it again, then go into the on-screen-menu and make sure the sap is off and stereo in on. If this all didn't resolves the issue then it is a bad speaker/speakers connection(s). Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

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..

yes you it is fixable you are having a micro chip problem or a power supply problem. take it to a tech.to have it repair.

I just repaired one for the same trouble. The input to the main processor from the standy switch had shorted to groung. This was probably caused by static inserted when pushing the power button. The processor is not a replaceable part. The part number for the main board is E3761-058010-2. It costs between $140 and $150. I found it on-line at Shopjimmy.com.
Good Luck!

hi there,

you must told to your hubby to check for the continuity on the main power supply of the unit, there's a part that need to be Replaced Small Electros In Main Power Supply.

let me know.

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.

tha same problem

you need to check the screen voltages inside the unit is a sticker with the voltages on it, if all the voltages are normal, could be the panel is bad, if the voltages are low or nonexistant it could be the L-main,Main or Y-main board

CALL LARRY AT 251-479-3567 HE HELPED ME WHEN AKAI WOULD NOT.

Instead of reloading the DVD multiple times, when the set is doing this try jaring it with the palm of your hand on a corner near where the DVD goes in. If it clears up when you tap it, maybe you just have a bad connection inside that needs repairing.

EHT or Extra High Tension is the power supplied to the final anode of the cathode ray tube.

The EHT is traditionally generated by the line transformer from the flyback pulse of the line oscillator/amplifier.
The generated high frequency high voltage current was from the outset rectified by a thermionic diode (eg. EY51, EY86) but by the late 1960s/early 1970s technology brought high voltage diodes and semiconductors rapidly replaced the old technology and the output from the line transformer then typically fed the anode via a semiconductor voltage doubler.

The rectified EHT was originally smoothed by a high voltage oil-filled capacitor but that was soon deleted in favour of spraying the outside of the CRT with a metallic paint and grounding it. This became the high voltage smoothing capacitor with the glass of the CRT being the dielectric and the final anode the positive pole...
