Re: 42" AKAI plasma screen problems
This is a sign of a lack of the luminance signal which may denote a problem with the chromanance signal ariving fast to the screen then the Luminance signal this is video problem. You will need to have a qualified TV technician look at this. You can find one on FixYa.com, or look in your area for one.

Try unplugging it for an hour or so or try change sources , if the
computer ever fell asleep while it was plugged in it is possible it
triggered a sleep mode in the tv. Most will do such a thing. It is
doubtful that the computer caused any damage to it but i would advise
against using a plasma tv as a computer monitor because burn in WILL
eventually occur with a static image left on the screen constantly.
EASY! ok the 4th video processing unit is malfunctioning, if it is a Piano affect like the keys on the piano, then that can be fixed under your 1year warrenty after your 1year warrenty it will cost $200, but i could be wrong, i never studied panasonic plasma casue they ****, next time get a samsung.
the worst contrast and video ajustments, thats a panasonic.
Try putting a fan on the back of the tv to see if it is getting better. If it does then you probally have a board that is overheating. If that is the case then CAREFULLY !!! remove the back and place where you can turn on and safely access the open back NO TOUCHING STUFF !!! Mabey lay it face down on a glass table or lay it on a table with 25% hanging over the edge to see the screen. Then take a COLD blow dryer and blow it on the boards to find out which one makes it get better. If one does then it will probally be your problem board. Make extremely sure that is the one before removing it by blowing from all angles on the boards around it without air hitting the suposed problem board. Then try a little hot air to see if that starts the problem on that board so you can be sure. Of course check the surrounding and offending board several times to be sure before removing.
Hello Lunhoo, Your TV should still be in warranty. If so, yes you should take it in for repair. Even if it's not in Warranty, Akai may have a special warranty extension for your TV. Check it out. Good luck.
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.
