    I feel you pain...I have the same issue. I found out that it is a power supply board problem from a guy name George on this website. I think i am going to send my power supply board to him.



    You can call him at 213.500.3384.

You can fix this TV very easily and inexpensively if you know how to use a soldering iron and aren't afraid of some intricate work....

It is your power supply Capactors that are blown...Remove the back of the tv and look at the power supply and look for the round capacitors that have blown (see the non-flat tops usually w/discoloration).....Usually it is 3 of the 1000uf 16v capacitors that need to be upgraded....(Shown in the first picture below)

Just pull use a soldering iron and remove the leaking/blown ones and replace with higher voltage ones....I used Panasonic ECA-1EHG102 25V 1000uf ones from Digi-Key (Digi-Key p/n P5544-ND)....

If it is the two larger ones that are leaking/blown (1000uf 35V as seen below one bulging and one blown/leaking) replace those with higher quality Panasonic ECA-1VHG102 ones as well (Digi-Key p/n P5555-ND)...Digi-Key is at www.digikey.com and they ship fast and offer great prices...

Look to see if you have a fan on the backside.

Akai 27 inch Flat with built in DVD wont show picture/turn on


I just purchased a referbished Akia LCT37Z4AD. I plugged it in and it worked great but it still needed moved into place, on the entertainment center. Well it done the exact same thing while moving it. I simply Moved it around and it turned back on. I believe this is happening because of a hazard mechanizme that trips when moved or shacken. Something like an electric heater does when knocked over. Not 100% sure and I just started researching it so I will write back when I know the exact problem.
