Question about Akai LCT3201AD 32 in. LCD Television
TV picture won't come up. TV powers on as indicated by light at base of screen, but no picture shows. Have removed power cord and all peripheral cords then restored power, but still no picture. TV was inadvertently left on overnight with screen saver from Sony dvd player on. TV was in AV mode all night. This morning, no picture. Can you offer suggestions
We have just been working on this exact problem and have a page with all the details -
Hope it helps!

I have Scott 32 inch LCD TV that the picture cuts out after about an hour of run time. I think this is a heatsink problem as I have set up a fan, blowing into the vent slots at the top rear of the TV.
Now the TV works as long as I leave the fan on, no problems.
I had noticed that the unit gets very warm at the top, and when the picture first cut out, it felt hot back there. So I powered down, let it cool, and put the fan back there. The fan is actually an air purificaton unit on medium setting. The fan has a sqirrel cage type blower about 10" long, blowing into the ventilation slots from about 2" away.
Then I powered back up, and the picture stayed on all day with no problems. The next morning, I powered up the TV but forgot the fan. 1 hour later, blink, there went the picture again. So I repeated the cool down / fan proceedure and it's working fine again.
If your picture will not come on at all anymore, it is likely that the heat problem has damaged the component that is getting too hot

Hi, The problem comes from the power supply board. The power supply board is a three phase unit. One phase on the power supply failed, that would be the reason for the no picture. 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. To have it repaired, click on the below link http://www.power-supply-repair.com/ If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me asap. Thanks, Mike
