Question about Akai PDP-5016H 50 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

TV turning on and off

While watching the TV has suddenly taken to going from the blue startup AKAI screen to a black screen over and over. When it goes to black "AIR 2" appears in red in the upper right corner with mono directly beneath it. The words "Full Screen TV" appear in the bottom right as well. It will then go completely black for a few seconds and then go back to the blue screen. Dispite turning the TV off and on and unpluging and re-plugging it in the problem persists.

    No, I am unable to change the input source as the switching from blue screen to black occurs every few seconds. The problem started in the middle of a program, noone was touching the remote or TV to change the input source.

Air 2 is the source it's looking at for a signal - - where is the signal plugged into? and are you able to change the input or source to look at another?

    Quite possibly the logic main board has failed, more specifically the micro controller Ic on that board. That would explain all the symptoms you're describing except being locked on an input you had not selected in the first place. That means you could also have a secondary problem - maybe with the digital board - but my best advice on this one is find yourself a good qualified shop in Plasma/LCD and take it to them. They're going to need to do some logic and signal trace testing with a scope to find out why the commands are stuck in a loop.

    Usually the repair on this one is done at modular level, not component. Which means they'll be replacing a board not just a small part or two.. The great thing is Akai is built by Samsung so they won't have too much difficulty locating parts and unlike some off-brand the parts won't be unaffordable.

    Good Luck!

Picture on Akai PDP4273M1 suddenly degraded drastically - no whites, very low contrast. Turned it off for 10 minutes then back on, instead of bright blue I get most black splotches with some blue. Any...

You could smash the TV and find that it will work better or call a local repairman. I know the exact problem with this TV, but only a technician should even open a TV. The guy I got the TV from totally butchered the inside of his Akai in a failed attempt to fix his TV himself. Instead, he created a fire hazard and is lucky he did not burn his house down.

Akai model pdp4249g

Hello drifter,The design of the tv enables the auto search to detect any input signal you have selected. It could be TV (off air, video signals etc) so just switch on whatever inputs to the akai plasma befote you switch the Akai plasma on and let it do the work for you. just relax and watch the tv. recap 1. switch on the input eg video deck, DVD, VCD, or satellite dish. 2. switch on your AKAI PLASMA and 3. wait for the akai to search for your input signals. TRy this simple procedure and if it doesnt work just post back the message. The DON
