Question about Akai LCT2785TA 27 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Tv no picture Akai

You said you had an Akai fixed earlier this year and that it had four bad capacitors on the power board. How much did that cost to fix? I don't know whether I should buy a new tv or try to have mine fixed.

Thanks.

I don't remember exactly which ones I replaced.Look at the capacitors on the power board,and replace any that have the top,or bottom bulged out.The capacitors didn't cost much,maybe around $10 with shipping,depending on how many you need.Do you have your power board out?I hope this helps.If you have any questions,please let me know.
Thank You very much!

I have a akai pdp4294 tv with sound and no picture where should i start? thank you angelo


I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.


Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.


Here are some options for you.


1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)

Remember, TVs CONTAIN HIGH VOLTAGE AND CAN KILL YOU! Do this at your own risk.

2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found online. I would definitely shop around though.


3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.


This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.


Hope this helps and if it does please rate it accordingly. Good luck.
