Question about Akai LCT3701AD 37 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

Wont power on after being turned off, but if unplugged and replugged it will.

This problem has become worse and worse to the point where it happens every time now. If I turn my TV off, it will not turn on unless I unplug it from the wall and plug it back in. When I tried to turn it on the LED turns green for a few seconds, then back to red, and then the speakers make a popping noise. It doesnt matter how long I leave it off, it still does this until I unplug it and replug it.

I got this repaired at a local TV repair place. It was the power supply and the guy said that in the "newer TV's, you can expect for something to go wrong about every two years". It cost me $178. Luckily, this was a TV that I won in a raffle, so it was cost effective. If it goes out again in two years, I'll still be ahead of the game and I'll get it fixed again. Many thanks to Jaime867 for the answer.

It looks like the power supply is not providing the correct voltages to the other circuitry and that is when the LCDs failed to power up. In about 95% of the time the power up issues are due to a defective power supply.
I repair these power supplies, let me know if you required further assistance or you can email jah2mil@hotmail.com for more info.

Power went out now westinghouse tv wont work


The brown outs created by your AC unit may have caused some internal damage to the Power board or the inverter board. If you aren't able to do the basic electronic dignostics required, take it to a professional to have it diagnosed.
If you're handy and able to do some basic diagnostics with a VOM, remove the back of the TV and look for bulging capacitors or check for possibly blown fuses with an Ohm meter.

Tv wont turn on


Hello Charliebigwh, hi technically your monitor's power supply has a problem, this is either your switching regulator does not work or there is a short in that section, If you want to do it your self, need to replace all large value, and or high voltage capacitors(especially the capacitors with its top is bubbly), need also to replace the switching IC, and power transistor.

Have it checked by a technician if you cannot do the work.

TH-42PD50U 42" plasma from Panasonic. The TV tipped over and won't turn back on. The red power light just keeps flashing on and off.


Try to unplug and replug the power cord. If TV remains unchanged you need to call for service. The power supply board was defective. In worse case, the Y and buffers are defective, too. There are many steps needed to figure out the exact defective board. You need help from TV repairer unless you want DIY.

I had a Similar problem where I would turn the tv on and the green light would come on and then the red would follow and blink 7 times. I tried unplugging it and then then replugging it back and it would still do the same. What I did last night was that I unplugged it and then replugged it back, when I saw the green light, I would unplug it again, till the light went out and replugged it, I did that 3 times in a row, and waiting and it came back on. Hope that works. I still don't know what caused the problem to begin with..
