This problem turned out to be simple! Take the remote control batteries out of the remote for a while, then re- install them. Somehow the remote was sending the wrong I.R. code. D.B.

The only solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to firstname.lastname@example.org

Its likely the main board in the TV that needs to be replaced. The problem is, Akai USA is no longer in business. I use to work for their customer service department. They still have a website, www.akaiusa.com, but there is no number for you to call to speak to someone. There is a link on the site for parts and you can send an email asking if the main board for that model is still available and what the price would be.. However, the price of the part, if it's still available, combined with the labor charge to have the part installed will cost you more than what a new 32" LCD would cost you in today's market. Today you can buy a LCD that size for around $350.
If I were you, I'd save myself the aggravation of waiting for someone to respond to an email about a part that costs over $200 and I'd go shopping for a new TV.
