Our tv will not turn on

Hi there. We were watching tv the other night and all of a sudden it turned off. we tryed to turn it back on, the little red light flashed to turn on but wouldn't turn on. Would this be a bulb?? This model is an Akai HDTV 1080i projection (I think) The models that come up don't seem to be the right ones. I hope you can help.

Our AKAI was just 14 months old. A few days ago, it died also. Blank screen, no sound, but the timer light will flash on a couple of times when you try to power it up. It even sounds like it wants to turn on. I paid a tech to come to my house $65 and it turns out to be the power supply $385. I checked other chat boards and many people are having this same problem with their AKAI 42" (PT4298HD) televsion. A real piece of junk this model! Sorry for the bad news!

My 32" Element LCD tv is broken. One night I was watching tv and all teh sudden there was blue, red and yellow lines running horizontally across teh screen, audio was fine. I turned it off and unplugged...

Yes!
It has suffered a breakdown in the power supply and the damage has also spread as far as the sustain boards that control video and convergence. This is not a DIY and the repair for parts is $300 + labour. However, get a few quotes. At least a 32 in is a little more transportable than a 6' model

TV won't stay on

You will have to call an Authorized Panasonic Servicer. Any modules bought from them requires an authorization. Since your not a service center, it's going to be almost impossible for you to do anything. Play it safe and have it looked at.

Status light just flashes red and will not turn on

Firstly, unplug your tv for at least 4 hours. Over night is better. This is what we call a Hard or Master Reset.
This should solve your problem. If by chance it doesn't, then more than likely your power supply board is shot.
Very common in the newer tv's

TV suddenly shut off, blinking red light in power button

The TV's power supply capacitors probably went bad.

Check with a mobile tv repair co. to see if it is worth fixing.

Power button Flashes

For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
Thanks,
Dan

Open the back cover and check any fuse blow in Y Sustain board or Z Sustain board. If you do find the fuse gone, replace the board. Good luck!
