Question about Akai Televison & Video
SOURCE: akai tv went blank
if you purchase a nine pin RS-232 connector cable with a male end and a female end you can hook your TV up to your computer. You can actually run a diagnostics program, and tests on your TV! The cable is like 5-10 dollars depending on length and is availible at most local computer stores. Just hook the cable up to the data port beside your PC input on the back of the TV. Good luck! (just saved you 100 tv repairman bill) and also check the bulb to make sure it is still good! The service guide to this TV has ALL the answers to your TV at www.nodevice.com , search in service manual and it has all the codes to reset your tv and counters for the bulb for $10..(for the manual that is you just download it to your computer then print it off)

The tv goes into standby. 2 possible causes:
1 - the power source has aged and the voltage it delivers to the other components of the tv (in particular the control processor) is no longer stable: if the voltage drops below a certain level the processor just shuts down, putting the tv in standby. The power source will have to be checked and the aged components replaced (it's most likely the capacitors).
2 - there is a power fluctuation on the mains power line - the others don't shut down because they have a lower power necessity and they are able to coup with that.. The only way to test and fix that is to run the tv thru a UPS.
