    Can you fix it?

    The set picks up the audio but no video. The screen has no raster totally blank. Teasted the leads going to the plasma set by connecting them to a small TV set and everything works fine. It seems that no current or voltage, is getting to the plasma set to illuminate the screen. It was playing when I left the room, and was blank a few moments later when I returned. The model number is the same as another complaint I just read.

    PDP 4294. HELP!!!

  • Anonymous Feb 08, 2008

    Purchased AKAI PDP42Z5TA 3 months ago. Have not used very much but worked fine up to a couple of weeks ago. Then after a few hours of viewing the screen would go completely dark but the green light and sound are still on. After shutting down for 30 minutes the tv would reset and work again. Now when the unit is turned on I just get a dark blank screen with green light and sound. Tired all suggested solutions like recycle power and reset. From the number of similar complaints it looks like AKAI is specializing is selling substandard junk.

    Akai Plasma TV, the screen is blanks but I still hear sound

  • dougc56 Mar 07, 2009

    Had the same thing happen to my AKAI 27 in with built in DVD. First the unit went out after about a year. Took it to repair center and they said the power supply went out. He rebuilt it at $250. Now has went out again after another year. Has sound but no picture think the backlight inverter went out. They are on e-bay at about $90 but not sure it is worth it any more so I bought a new 42 in. STAY AWAY FROM AKAI they are ****.

  • momahelp Apr 06, 2009

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.

AKAI 32" LCS with DVD
Power sully seems faulty
red light is on (sleep mode) but does not turn to green to start TV.
Initially unplugging worked sometimes. But now it just wont start. No support exists from AKAI. They should not be allowed to sell without any after sales service

AKAI LCT 2715
The TV shut off with 30 secs left in my football game. The light blinks red, and there is a hmmm with a pulse through the speakers, but this is before I turn the TV on-its when I turn on the hard power switch. When I turn the switch off the pulse slowly fades. The TV is a year and a half old.

I posted this problem back in February. I started a campaign of harrasment at the Akai support center and worked my way up to a supervisor. I had her email and personal phone number. The independent TV repair places hate Akai as they do not send the replacement parts. They do have parts!. They have a retail parts department with a complete supply, over in the warranty section the shelves are bare. They finally pulled a new motherboard from retain and fixed the unit. I fully expect it to **** out again as I am sure the basic design flaw is still there. By the way the repairman told me this was esentially an LG unit.

I have a ws65909, my power button as well goes on and goes of quickly. I held the reset for 10 seconds, blinks for a while, goes off. I press the power button and it occurred again. Is this the same...


When power light comes on and then when you turn set on and it goes out: ON FRONT OF SET PRESS AND HOLD BOTH THE MENU AND INPUT (DEVICE) BUTTONS AT SAME TIME FOR AT LEAST 5 SECONDS.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and then repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code you find and I will tell you what it means.

2. open the cover and check for paper jam
3. make sure the ink cartridge lid is securley in place by opening and re closing the ink cartridge lid
reclose the lid, disconnect the power supply and hold the power button for 30 seconds. reinstall the power plug and turn the printer back on.
