Question about Akai LCT3701AD 37 in. LCD Television
Chances are it is the the capacitors in the Power Supply. At $350, you could but a new LCD TV, but repairs can be made. There are places that will repair the old one advertising on ebay if you remove it and send it to them. If you remove the covers running across the heat sinks and see that the capacitors are bulging, the repairs are within the capability of anyone who knows how to use a soldering iron.
If you are handy with a soldering iron, LCDalternatives sells a kit with ALL electrolytic capacitors prone to fail for $15.95 plus shipping. I bought the kit and fixed mine. It took a couple of hours to unsolder and replace the capacitors. It powered up immediately and has run for last two years with no problems.
