    No i have not. I do not know anything about this stuff. Is that something I can pick up at a store and how do I replace it?

    My tv would not come on and I was told by the repairman that the power supply had gone bad. I have been waiting for over a month for the part and still don't have it fixed.

    Did you try replacing the fuse yet inside the TV?

My TV is a Emerson LC30EM82s, 32" 720P LCD. The Fundai corp. makes both of our TVs. So, I'm taking a big guess that the only difference with our TVs is just the " name". Just like Chev and GMC, same people. If the TV is under the 3 month warranty, use it. If not, you'll need a long phillips screw driver to unscrew the many screws holding the big plastic cover on the back. The Fuse (small glass tube with metal caps on the ends) is on the Power Inverter Board (where the power cord is attached to). Radio Shack should have replacements. If that doesn't solve the problem, you may have to replace the Power Inverter Board.

Is the red light suppose to stay on when you turn off the tv with the remote?


Yes it is supposed to stay on. This is the standby light. The television still draws power as do many electronic devices when not turned on and when in standby. If you do not want the red light to stay on you will have to unplug the television.

TV turns on at night.


check your TV's timer setting. typically you'll notice something different about the standby light - for example, it might be a different color, or might be blinking, etc to indicate that the timer feature is activated.

No picture and no sound


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

AKAI 32" LCD HDTV WILL NOT TURN ON


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 jah2mil@hotmail.com
