Hey guys...This seems to be a good place for for random knowledge, so here goes....
Yesteday I came home from work and there was a 46" plasma tv in front of my apartment with a sign that said "FREE." It looked o.k. although one of feet was busted (should be easy to fix with some epoxy or something) and the remote was taped to it.
When I plug it in, and press power, it comes on, but no picture...Do you guys know if there is some sort of lamp or something that might need replacing? I'm not familiar with plasmas, but my old DLP was as good as new with a $100 replacement lamp, and I wonder if this situation would be similar?
We already have a nice LED for our main TV, but having a plasma in the pool table area would be cool.
Do you guys think it's even worth trying to repair? It's definitely and older TV (AKAI I think?) and I don't think it even has an HDMI input.
