Question about Akai LCT3201AD 32 in. LCD Television
My TV keeps turning itself off. It will turn back on for about 30 seconds when we hit the power button on the remote, then it turns itself off again,. The number on our TV seems to say LCT3215A
If the service shops didn't charge people $200 to fix this I would not post.. But since they do - here's the $8 fix.
If you are electronically inclined, replace the three 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board located above the power switch. They are likely bulging out at the top and failed. They are the three in a row at the top - center of the board, located between the two black heat sinks. Make sure you get caps rated for 105c degrees! I recommend replacing them with 1000uf 25v caps. 35v caps will work but might be a tight fit as they are larger diameter.
Should cost you about $8 for the parts shipped. You can get them from partsexpress or digikey or any good local electronics store. Your local radio shack may have them but they won'y be 105c and thus may not last long.
Not handy, ask around, there is usually some electronic tweaker guy around that will install them for a few bucks.
This has solved the turns on / then off problem every time in the 3 I've done.

Hi, The problem comes from the power supply board. You can have the power supply board repair or replace. I understand that this part is VERY hard to find. Everywhere I have contacted, they do not have any in stock and cannot get stock. Your best bet is to have it repair.
