    I have the same problem, red light on, and can not turn TV on. About 2 weeks ago this problem started. At first I could unplug and after about 10 sec. the TV would work properly. Now It will not come on.

    TV won't start. Red light on. Would start if unplugged for a few seconds. Now will not start. Upon testing, you can hear a clicking noise from the board on the opposite side of the TV from the button(right hand side, if looking from the rear).

If you know how to solder and de-solder you might be able to do it. Visually inspect the capacitors in the power supply circuitry for bulging conditions and replace the ones that shows that condition.
I service these power supplies, Let me know if you need further assistance.

Akai LCD tv model LCT3285TA will not respond to remote. Green and red lights at sensor are out


The most common cause of this type of power issue is a failure of the filter capacitors on the power supply board. Below is a picture of the board with the faulty capacitors circled, there are 2 more under one of the big black heat sinks. The board can be repaired by replacing the bad capacitors. Below the picture is a link to a kit of the correct parts for the board repair if you want to do the job yourself.


I hope this helps you out.

it will be cheaper for you to replace the caps,the board cost about $80.00 from them

I've ordered a power supply for my AKAI LCT3285TA, but cannot remember where all the wires go (plug-ins for the board). Is there a picture of the back of the TV (the inside) for me to see?

best thing to do is take a digital camera and take a picture before you take it out then you can plug it back in correctly also there should be a diagram on the inside of the back of the tv

Screen powers up then goes blank after 2 seconds

Hi, was there a resolution to this? I am experiencing the same problem with LCT3285TA purchased at Radio Shack in Media, PA. Radio Shack has refused to service the unit and has put me over to Akai for the manufacturer's warranty. I'd like to know what to expect and if this problem with the Logo coming up and the unit shutting off/restarting can be easily fixed, thanks.
