Question about Akai CTS2550 25" TV

TV Akai CT29X4AV

Since shifting Akai 29" colour TV into a cupboard it suddenly switches itself off and red sensor light flickers can't switch on again for an hour or so. Last week used the remote to switch on and off and behaved all week until today when it decided to switch off again. Managed to get it back on 3 hours later and is still going some 5 hours later. Very strange any suggestions have put new batteries in remote but problem seems to be in main switch (I think).Can't understand how it can suddenly switch itself off. Another TV in Lounge is OK and doesn't switch off so can't be aerial problem. Would be grateful for any advice.

Re: TV Akai CT29X4AV

Have tried checking if the Power Plug is fitting tightly in the Power socket? Could be that it is loose?

My tv 32pw9617 switches of by itself.

sounds lick you may have a dry joint in the powers or line o/p stage.

as a rare fault it could be the crt with an intermittant internal s/c. but you would notice the colour was tinted either red, green, or blue in the dark areas of the pic.

TV switch light flickers 11 times but no function

Hopefully it is only a board component that needs replacing and your dry joints that need re-doing. I would advise that you take it to a television repair shop as this type of repair can be very complex (replacing resistors and capacitors just to name a few).

A qualified tech will need to practice visual acuity technique! Look at power supply circuit for signs of stress,dis-coloration and/or bad connects.Check for bad 47mf/25v cap in area of stress.Replace BC-327-25 xistor w/BC-328 and replace BC-337-25 w/BC-338,if present in your set's chassis style.
