Question about Akai CFTD2052 20 in. EDTV-Ready LCD TV/VCR/DVD Combo
My wife had the above subject TV in one of her rental units. While the tenant was watching it the screen went black. She replaced it with a different model and brought the AKAI home. I examining it, I found the sound works (sounds great), the DVD player works but the display screen is black. Upon closer examination I can see a slight image on the sceen if the light is right and at the right angle. Could it be the back lights? By replacing them could that fix the problem or is there other conditions that could exist for this problem? I have checked web sources and one site advertised the part costing around $100.00 Can the back lights be repaired or purchased cheaper etc. I don't wish to pour a great deal of money into this unit when a new set can be purchase for around $200.00 I am not an electronic tech but have built several kits over the last 30 years but weak experience in dianostic trobleshooting and testing. Thanking you in advance for your response.
Your problem could be a backlight problem. But the bulbs may not be the source of your problem, as both and sometimes 3 or 4 bulbs, depending on the set will not all go out at once. You most likely have an inverter problem with your set, that is the circuit that powers the backlights. Good Luck
