Hi, You need to replace the power supply board. there is no other fix for that problem. if you are handy, you could buy the parts and replace it yourself. Contact Akai if you are within the warranty policy. If you are within the warranty policy, they will replace the part free of charge. They provide in home service. Thanks, Mike

    Hi,

    You cant just simply replace the semiconductors.
    You have to know there values and isolate how many of them went bad.
    You might have bad semiconductors that are not visible to the naked eyes.
    Your best bet is to have the entire power supply board replaced or have it repair by a professional establishment.

Why wont my 42" vizio razor led hdtv turn on?


The TV's power supply has certainly got affected. Most probably some of the ground tracks might have got burnt along with a few components and this might require attention by a qualified service technician.

Blinking light on 37" Dynex LCD


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps
