Question about Akai PDP4294 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
My Akai 42 inch Plasma TV has a 1/2 inch vertical black bar that splits the picture in the middle of the screen. When I turn the TV on, sometimes it is there, sometimes not.It will come on and be intermintent or sometimes it will stay on all the time. Can anyone solve my problem? Can I continue to watch the TV or will the black bar burn into my screen?
It will burn into the screen overtime. The Akai units have a resistor on the address board that feeds the PDP that usually has a crack in the solder on one or both ends of it. There are about 4 address boards that are right below the panel itself and the suspect one is the board right below the line that is appearing. Have someone with solder skills repair it.
