I just got a free Akai 50" plasma from a friend because it was taking up space and he didnt know what to do with it.

Now I realize the brand and how some hate it and all of the blah blah blah. But I really dont care about the opinions of whether the brand is good or not. What I do want to do is stay on topic and fix this thing. Please

When I turn the TV on it starts to boot for a second, then stops. Then tries again and stops again. I removed the back panel and watched it as I turned the power on. Both fans start to spin, a green LED on a small board next to the power board lights up, then everything turns off. A second or two after they shut off (fans and LED), they again do the same thing of starting and shutting off. They then stay off.

I have absolutely zero experience with plasma TVs. The extent of my experience is converting a bad backlight on an HP monitor to LED after the CCFLs burned out.

Any help would be appreciated!
