Question about Akai LCT3285TA 32 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Lct3285ta Akai Hello, I was fixing this Akai LCD that was given to me by a friend. Looks like the power supply has some bad caps. I was not the first person to open this LCD tv up. Looks like someone removed the control board on the side. I wanted to know if anyone has pics of the inside of this TV. I need pics of the control board all the way to the main board. I found a board online, but need to know where it plugs into on the main board. If you can help with pics or with a Akai repair booklet you would help me a whole bunch. Thanks for your time all. Patrick

    Man thank you for the pics!!! It looks like my tv is missing a cable!!! Those pics are very good, but could you take a few close up pics of the connecter in the right had corner? It looks like it jumps from one board to the next. Looks like the 5v goes to the 5v twice. Then skips a ground. Then three grounds then the 9v goes to the 12 v?? Boy thanks for the pics. I bet that makes a differance :) If you can get a closer pic of each connection that would be grate. Thanks a bunch!!!!!!!

Akai LCD tv model LCT3285TA will not respond to remote. Green and red lights at sensor are out


The most common cause of this type of power issue is a failure of the filter capacitors on the power supply board. Below is a picture of the board with the faulty capacitors circled, there are 2 more under one of the big black heat sinks. The board can be repaired by replacing the bad capacitors. Below the picture is a link to a kit of the correct parts for the board repair if you want to do the job yourself.


I hope this helps you out.

the problem is in the power supply(they know about it good luck fighting them)but there is good can remove the power supply and replace electrolytic caps,EC18,EC19,EC20 all of them are 1000mf at16 volt use 1000mf at25 can also go to enter model number you will see power supply part number MLT169B
it will be cheaper for you to replace the caps,the board cost about $80.00 from them

Screen powers up then goes blank after 2 seconds

Hi, was there a resolution to this? I am experiencing the same problem with LCT3285TA purchased at Radio Shack in Media, PA. Radio Shack has refused to service the unit and has put me over to Akai for the manufacturer's warranty. I'd like to know what to expect and if this problem with the Logo coming up and the unit shutting off/restarting can be easily fixed, thanks.
