Video failure for AKAI LCT3785TA has Audio and Channel Selection Functions

I have a 14 month old AKAI LCT 3785TA.I left it on and returned an hour later to find a light gray screen,ie no video.This set is connected to DirecTv and tuned to a music channel.While I was out Directv did some upgrades which may have affected this TV?It has audio and channel change .I was refunded the purchase price and three extended contact since no repair service was available by Radio Shack.Another local TV repair service tried to repair but was not sucessful because of AKAI's lack of tech support and a sevice manual for this model.They verfied the simple solutions such as contunuity between the three boards.I found a supplier ,Davis TV Service in California,for the service manual and have ordered.Pehaps one of you have experienced the same problem and have come up with a simpler solution other than the replacement of what appears to be the video board failure.There are video boards available at Davis TV and cost between $350.00- $450 plus a core change.The question is two prong.Which video board does this set use?Or is the existing video board repairable,ie a resistor or capacitor vs a computer chip?I have heard that this set is very trouble prone and best solution is to scrap it !I experienced this when the first set failed the first day and this one was the replacement.I just find it repulsive to fill a land fill with a 14 month old LCT .Thanks Jack Heaton

AKAI LCT 2060 was working well as a TV. Just hooked it up to my PC and the message on screen reads "No Signal" Checked monitor cable and it's good. checked old monitor and it works well. Why...


The display settings on your computer need to be turned down. Set it to 800x600 and move up from there, if the resolution is too high - the TV won't display it.
