    Thank you jaskylag for your help. I too found a few capacitors bubbled on top of them. I have already replaced them, but still not working. I will try working on it more.

    I just wanted to confirm if LCT3201AD Power suppy board (MlT186) will work) for an Akia LCD TV model LCT32Z4ADP.

I fixed my Akai LCT3201AD in about 30mins. using 3 small parts from Radio Shack. Once I got the back off, I found the power supply board (PSB), mine was part# MLT-169B rev1.2. I looked at the capacitors (caps.) first, because they are usually easy to diagnose. I noticed the caps. bubbled out on the top of the board (where all the cables connect to it). There is 3 of them in a row, positioned between the two large heatsinks. My guess is that the heatsinks are generating a LOT of heat over time, because of bad ventilation, and causing the caps. to fail.
I went to Radio Shack and found 3 caps. (only had 3 in stock). The original ones were 16V-1000uF, Radio Shack only carried 35V and 50V in the 1000uF caps., so I bought the 35V ones and headed home, I removed the old caps. from the board, and installed the new ones. The 35V caps, are a little bigger, so its a tighter fit on the board, be careful. It took longer to remove the back from the TV than it did to do the soldering. YouTube.com has excellent videos on how to de-solder caps. on PSB's.

Total money spent on repairs:
$1.59 ea for 3 Caps. (part# 272-1032) $4.77
$2.99 for new soldering iron tip + $2.99
$1.00 donation for St. Jude's + $1.00
Total including tax $9.30


So for less than $10, I did a repair that my local TV repair shop wanted $575 for. Online stores want anywhere from $100-$275 for a PSB. If I get another 2 yrs out of it that's well worth $10.

My dell xps420 does not turn on, no switch power or light, i have working internal lights


there're a couple of reasons for this.. maybe the motherboard and the new power supply is incompatible.

try removing the power cables for all the drives, just leaving the graphics card and ram seated. see if you can get into the bios. if you can, means the power supply u used is not enough to power the drives.

otherwise, try removing a component at a time to see where is the problem. try to get to the bios and hear for beeps. they should be tell-tale signs.

Surge has possibly fried the PSU. Depending on the severity, you may find other components are damaged on the motherboard.
Best way is to test with a known good PSU

Tv screen get small at times


This could be attributed to a drying capacitor. In power supply or at the high voltage circuitry. Check first it power suppy voltage for under voltage. This can also be thermal problem for some component.

Just for some input hope it helps

I Need a power suply


These units don't have a separate "power suppy" per se. There is a power transformer and a separate board that contains the standby power supply components. The main power supply components are on the main board.

Rather than looking for a "power supply", what is the problem with the unit? Is there a standby light?

Hi vcan i ask you a question on a r40 problem


This could be a battery problem. Remove the battery and start on the power supply only. If this doesn't work, then check the power supply with an ohm meter to see if it's getting the proper output to the machine. If the supply checks good, then I'm afraid that you have a problem component on the motherboard, and will need to have it professionally diagnosed in order to track down the exact problem component.
