    its me i posted this problem and ive solved it if this happens to u just remove the power supply board and look at the capacitors you'll need to unscrew the heatsink bridge the small 1 there are 2 of them look for domed or cracks in the top of the capacitors replace as needed i had to replac 4 of them if parts are hard to get u can exceed the voltage of the cap by a little but not the uf i got my parts at a local radio shack cost was about $7.00 us and my time wich was less than an hour. the 4 caps that i replaced wer 2@ 10 volts 1000 uf replaced with 2@ 35 volts 1000uf and 2@ 35 volts 220 uf replaced with like caps tv turns on and works fine again.

    I have an Akai LCT 3785TA LCD flat panel TV. I turned it off one night and next morning it will not turn on when I tried the remote or the switch on the side panel. When I disconnect the power cable and wait for the red light to go off and then reconnect the power cable and use the remote again it operates just fine until I turn it off and try to operate it again. I have to go through the whole process with the power cable again. Any solutions to this prob?

Delay light is flashing on tv, but wont turn on. Not sure if problem is tv or remote? Dont see light on remote when push in buttons?


The problem with the unit is power supply part number,MLT166A.If you can not find one you can try to fix yours.First you have to take out power supply,Replace 3 electrolytic caps EC18,EC19,EC20 all are 1000mf at 16 volt.Then find Z3 on same board,it is a 27 volt zener diode 1 watt,part number 1N4750A.Put board back in then unit should work.

There is NO SOUND from the LC3760N 37 inches TV after I turn it on. I tried these buttons: increase volume button, decrease volume button, and the mute button. The TV was working last nigth; I don't know...


The problem was caused by a loose conexion. One of the cables that goes from the DirecTV box to the TV was loose. The problem was FIXED by pushing the cables to make sure there was a good conexion.

Blue screen on my haier 37 inch tv


my tv just went to a blue screen one day. I can turn it on and then it will just remain on the blue screen. Any button (except the volume) I push on the remote comes up on the screen "no signal". What would you suggest? I have been reading about replacing a fuse or board? Most of those are on the 42 inch version---I have teh 37 inch version.
