It can't be replaced for that. But I would not put much more than that into it.

If you keep whacking it, you'll NEED a repairman!!!

Really, the question you should ask yourself is, "Am I wanting to spend money to fix this set or invest in a new one?" Since I don't know your financial situation, I won't go there, but I would suggest that you maybe contact a TV repair person, have them come out, look at the set and give you an estimate on the repair costs. The trip out and the estimate may cost you a couple hundred bucks, but you then have the information necessary to decide which way you want to go.

Personally, if the cost of the repairs approach about 1/3 the cost of a new set, I would opt for the new set -- so if it would cost me about $700 or more to fix the old one, I could see a new set in my future. If it would only run $300, I may get the old one fixed and get another year or two out of it. By then, the prices on the larger sets would have come down, the options and selections would have gone up.....

Tv power flashes like it wants to come on but wont

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the power supply in your television is shot. What happens during a power surge is that you have a buildup of power either at the wall or even in power supply of the TV from a sudden shut down of electricity. Now when current is restored, that build up is all shoved into your electronics all at once.
The quick of it, is that your power supply can no longer maintain a steady stream of electricity to all the components in your TV and so it keeps trying to restart the unit in the TV.
My advice is to bring the TV to a certified technician or contact the manufacturer to find out about getting some warranty work done on your TV. Otherwise, if you're paying for it out of pocket, weigh the cost of the repair vs a new panel.
To avoid this in the future, make sure you acquire yourself a surge protector power bar, for flat panel TV's it is always a good idea to spend a bit more on a protector as they do so much more than just prevent surges to your electronics. Let me know if you want some more information on them!
Best of luck!

Where can i find a replacement picture tube for my akai 42" LCD tv?

Due to residual electricity, replacing a TV's picture tube is very dangerous. I would NOT do it myself. Besides this, getting a new picture tube frequently costs almost as much as a new TV would.

You can contact a local repairman (if it's still under warranty just send it back), and get an estimate, but seriously consider getting a new TV.

No power. Possible power supply issue.

If the repairman guarantees that the problem is the power supply and will agree not to charge you if that is not the problem, then by all means go for it. Most TVs it is what is called the Power supply Unit, or PSU, and the part alone costs well over $100...

No picture or sound

It most likely is in the power supply in the tv . maybe as simple as pico fuse or reg fuse . You could call a local tv shop and ask them what they charge to look at . average price is 120.00
and of course fuse woud be alot cheaper.

No picture no sound nothing

We had a TV repairman look at our 3 year old (Oct 2004) Panasonic CT-32HXC14J FLAT SCREEN TV. It suddenly stopped working and appeared to have no power getting to it. It was a high voltage supply or transformer that was bad and has to be replaced - estimated cost is around $400. In a year we will also need to spend around $125 for a digital converter box. We went for the repair since that is still cheaper than a $1,000 plus equivalent size LCD or plasma.

Our old tube tv was still working after 15+ years. They aren't making them like they used to. Way to go Panasonic.
