My Akai LCT3201AD won't turn on

I don't get any LEDs, sounds or anything. It just flat out doesn't turn on. My cousin took it to a TV repair shop and they said it was the main board. It sounds like a power supply issue to me.....

I found an LCT3201TD on craigslist w/ a broken screen. Can I buy that and use the parts on my LCT3201AD?

    I had to start unplugging the TV and plugging it back in every time I wanted to turn it on. Now it won't turn on at all and has a high whining sound in the back. The TV is only 2 years old.

Normally the end model numbers signify a revision. Your LCD screen should work fine in the other one. Manufacture's tend to keep LCD screens within the same vendors for specific models for cheap replacements =)

This may be an instance were the idea was great but the execution wasn't thought out. I've heard of several related problems that may be related. Both the TV and the DVD player tend to produce heat, not in great abundance, but together a sizable amount of heat. The power supply may have been ample for the TV at first but with the addition of the DVD player was not able to handle the extra load. If still under warranty you're all set. If not you might call Akai and see what they might be able to do for you.

Lct3201ad power supply - plz let me know how much


The AKAI LCT3201AD I got from a friend who didn't know it was stuck in stand by. Took it to the local TV repair guy who charged me $25 deposit to check it out and replaced the power supply for $99 total. Works good except for DVD player that won't eject. Just need to figure out what bolts are to be used for mounting to the wall.

Akai LCD TV wont turn on


Hello davidshu,

The issue seems to be a power supply problem. The television has a switching power supply. This might be the problem. I would suggest getting it repaired at a television repair shop due to the possible complexity of the work that needs to be done.

AKAI LCT3201AD Tv will not stay on when you turn it on the light changes to green and then in about 10 seconds turns red again. TV is 1 1/2 years old. For awhile we were able to unplug it and plug it back...


I have just repaired one of these sets for the 2nd time. The problem is definitely the Capacitors on the Main Power Supply Board. If you are handy, you could replace them yourself, or You can send your board to me and I will make the repair for you. Akai initially used what I feel are sub-standard Capacitors on these boards, and I have found that by replacing most of them, this problem can be eliminated.

Akai lct3201 power problem


I fixed my Akai LCT3201AD in about 30mins. using 3 small parts from Radio Shack. Once I got the back off, I found the power supply board (PSB), mine was part# MLT-169B rev1.2. I looked at the capacitors (caps.) first, because they are usually easy to diagnose. I noticed the caps. bubbled out on the top of the board (where all the cables connect to it). There is 3 of them in a row, positioned between the two large heatsinks. My guess is that the heatsinks are generating a LOT of heat over time, because of bad ventilation, and causing the caps. to fail.
I went to Radio Shack and found 3 caps. (only had 3 in stock). The original ones were 16V-1000uF, Radio Shack only carried 35V and 50V in the 1000uF caps., so I bought the 35V ones and headed home, I removed the old caps. from the board, and installed the new ones. The 35V caps, are a little bigger, so its a tighter fit on the board, be careful. It took longer to remove the back from the TV than it did to do the soldering. YouTube.com has excellent videos on how to de-solder caps. on PSB's.

Total money spent on repairs:
$1.59 ea for 3 Caps. (part# 272-1032) $4.77
$2.99 for new soldering iron tip + $2.99
$1.00 donation for St. Jude's + $1.00
Total including tax $9.30


So for less than $10, I did a repair that my local TV repair shop wanted $575 for. Online stores want anywhere from $100-$275 for a PSB. If I get another 2 yrs out of it that's well worth $10.
