    my 2 yr old akai tv turns on/off. It turns on to the point where the AKAI logo appears, then immediately turns itself off. Won't stay powered on, even using the side keypad. the remote as well won't turn on/off the tv.

    Any shock dangers or precautions? 


    I want to do this three-capacitor fix myself. I have pretty good solder skills, and I can open the back and remote the circuit board.

    Turns itself off after the cable box connects, or turns off by itself without cable hook up.  It happens within 25 seconds of truning on. THe red light is still lit.  Just not the green light with the AKIA logo comming on.

If you are electronically inclined, replace the three 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board located above the power switch. They are likely bulging out at the top and failed. They are the three in a row at the top - center of the board, located between the two black heat sinks. Make sure you get caps rated for 105c degrees! I recommend replacing them with 1000uf 25v caps. 35v caps will work but might be a tight fit as they are larger diameter.

Should cost you about $8 for the parts shipped. You can get them from partsexpress or digikey or any good local electronics store. Your local radio shack may have them but they won'y be 105c and thus may not last long.

Not handy, ask around, there is usually some electronic tweaker guy around that will install them for a few bucks.

This has solved the turns on / then off problem every time in the 3 I've done.

Replacing the 3 capacitors worked for me. I got the 3 capacitors for $1.60 a piece at radio shack. They were the 35 v and are a tight fit but It does do the job. The only headache was oll the screws involved with taking the back off.

I have fixed a few of these TV's Turning off by themselves and the light flashing once red LCT3201AD. If you can ship me the power supply I can fix for $90 plus cost of shipping back to you. If you don't want to mess with it then I may be interested in buying the TV from you depending on how much your wanting for it and how much shipping costs to get the entire TV to me safely. If Interested E-mail apsquire@att.net

I have a 32" HD AKAI TV that keeps turning itself off


If the service shops didn't charge people $200 to fix this I would not post.. But since they do - here's the $8 fix.

If you are electronically inclined, replace the three 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board located above the power switch. They are likely bulging out at the top and failed. They are the three in a row at the top - center of the board, located between the two black heat sinks. Make sure you get caps rated for 105c degrees! I recommend replacing them with 1000uf 25v caps. 35v caps will work but might be a tight fit as they are larger diameter.

Should cost you about $8 for the parts shipped. You can get them from partsexpress or digikey or any good local electronics store. Your local radio shack may have them but they won'y be 105c and thus may not last long.

See my other support issue regarding a simillar problem: http://www.fixya.com/support/t155367-red_line Since this is a row of dead pixels and the TV is under warranty, you need to either contact the manufacturer or even exchange it at the retailer you purchased it from.
