You still need to replace C301. I can fix your mainboard if you need help.

Yes it is definitely a power supply board issue. The self-diagnostic error codes of the LEDs are self descriptive. The logic board led blinks when an OVP(OVer VOltage Protection) is detected and the LED then blinks on the source of the problem(power board). My money would be on failed voltage regulator ICs and/or blown resistors. If you are not good at component level repair, then it might be good idea to just replace the board.

Hi, Check main power board for bad Caps. Replace caps with same rated or better caps.(Capacitors). Look for bulged or leaking caps. Good luck

I have a 50" Akai TV - that will not turn on

Good day!!!!

That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

I have an Akai tv, model KC09-b2. The tv shuts itself off after 4-5 minutes of it being on but only when i am watching tv through a digital box (motorla DCT6416 III). the sleep function is set to off.

While this suggests a power supply problem with the tv, the digital cable box should really have no bearing on the shutdown. The cable box only sends audio and video signals at an extremely low voltage to the main board. The issue is with the power supply. You might want to take the back of the tv off and see if there are any puffed up capacitors on the power supply pcb. This is the board where the power cord plugs into. If they are puffed, replace the capacitors with an equal or slightly higher value. The values are in mfd and voltage which are printed on the capacitors themselves. Keep me informed. Thank you

How shrink picture size in AKAI 14" portable TV

Less power output from the internal SMPS; usually 110v, may less. Horizontal output capacitor may leaky. Horizontal output transistor fault may occur. In rare cases deflection yoke assembley fault.
If the picture is stamped size; suspect the power supply. If the picture is less in width, suspect the above said capacitor, and the lenearity coil fitted on the main board.

My akai dlp tv turns itself off then it flashes

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Akai flat screen lcd tv.. turns itself off after about 10 min

had a very similar situation with my Phillips 42 in. LCD TV.

Here was my Problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened it up( Warranty was Expired) and found several faulty capacitors on the PSB. Its pretty common. Major Electronic companies were sold faulty capacitors that fail in 2-5 years instead of 10-20 due to a lack of preservatives. It wouldn't surprise me if you have the same problem. TV will work fine for a few years and then just fail completely or slowly deteriorate.

Here are the solutions
1. Have it Repaired
2. Check for faulty caps and if you find some(budged or leaking) you know you have located a problem
Remove the board and replace the whole thing.
3. If you have some soldering skills you can replace the faulty caps.
Caps are very inexpensive, under a dollar in most cases. I replaced 4 for about $5.00

Hope this Helps.
Good Luck

Akai 42" LCD TV - Bad Picture

there is a weakness in the power, this could be power board or the main av board. the capacitors would be the main problem as they control the voltage around the power board and also on the av board. you maybe able to see the problem if the capacitors caps have rounded at the top, but on the av board this is harder to notice as they dont go rounded at the top they need checking with a meter to see if the voltage is right coming out onto the board. these are called smd capacitors and are soldered to the top of the board and a lot smaller than normal capacitors. a visual look at the power board would be needed to see if there is a problem
