    exact same problem. I plug it in and the light turns red, then I turn it on and the light turns green and makes "the click noise" but the screen is black. The person I got it from said that it has been sitting in storage for a few months....Is it worth fixing cuz I really want to keep the tv

My proscan TV was working fine. then the video went and now no audio.. it lights up briefly when u turn on. then screen goes dark.. is this fixable or better to get a new tv..It is only 3 years old

I believe it's fixable! Take a look on your video and audio cables (behind the TV, the red, yellow and white ones). They must have a problem. Already happened to me!
I hope I've helped...


There might really be a problem with the unit. Try unplugging it out of the power outlet and plug it back in after 30 seconds. If your using a power box (voltage regulator), try plugging it directly to the outlet. If all nothing happens, see a local tv tech in your area. The unit could be damaged.

TV went out and will not come back on. Power light shows red but no sound or picture. It's about 4-5 years old.

I have a akai tv, the tv went out but won't come back on. i'm still getting a red light but the tv just beep when I press the power button.

Almost same symptom

Probably what happend to mine. It's all the same problem. It's actually fixable. I repaired mine.

Flashing RED Light

Our AKAI also shut off & the red light started to blink...got no help from AKAI, but did from COSTCO. We bought the set before the 90 day warranty they have in place now, so they referred us to COSTCO Concierge Services: 1-866-861-0450. We were referred to a repair service & after discovering what the problem was found out that AKAI not longer has parts for this model. COSTCO replaced our TV---talk about satisfaction guaranteed.

No picture ; no sound

the red blinking light usually has a pattern that gives you a code to the possible problem.
Maybe you have a bad power supply board. You have to open the panel and do a few tests on the power supply's outputs to be sure.
It produces a variety of voltages for different parts of the tv ie. the plasma display panel and the audio system. The components supplying power to the audio system may have failed a year ago and recently the pdp.

plasma tv's are expensive to repair, most of the time you can get a better tv for the same price. You can reduce that cost by learning and troubleshooting it yourself.

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.


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
