Question about Akai LCT3285TA 32 in. LCD Television

AKAI LCT3285TA seems to be stuck in "Standby"

We have an AKAI LCT3285TA that was purchased at Office Depot about 7 months ago. One day, it just refused to turn on. The little red LED on the front bezel is lit, indicating "Standby" mode, and when the "ON" button is pushed, it blinks once and stays red and the screen doesn't come on at all, totally black. Normally, the red LED would turn green, then the blue AKAI boot screen would appear, then the video picture would come on (cable box, DVD, etc.) On another website I read about a similar situation where the TV was stuck in "Child Lock" mode, and was unlocked using the remote. The instruction booklet says nothing about any such mode for our TV. Calls to AKAI "tech support" have been useless, the guy was basically reading the same booklet that came with the TV to me. I tried to schedule a service visit since the unit is still under warranty, but almost a week later we haven't heard from the shop. So we are still stuck with a non-working large LCD... Is it really stuck in Standby, or has something like the internal power supply failed? My TV refuses to turn on. I thought it was the remote, but I tried turning it on from the side buttons but it won't turn on. I have to unplug then plug it back in and that's the only way it turns on. I don't know if this damages it more or not.

Dont worry you have the right to claim your warranty! Tell the Company that you have called up FIXYA tech support to confirm whether it is a serious problem and you are advised to claim the service or replacement warranty from the company. This problem could be cap or transistor gone bad that can only be fix by expert.

They will do it soon that way!

    To see the power supply generates enough voltage to power up, it is not worth breaking the warranty seal. They will repair it FREE of cost so call them until they come and save your money!

A hard reset is what I suggested to you; if the power is unplugged for a long enough period of time to totally discharge all internal eproms and memories, then when you power it up again, the memories will be totally empty and the factory program will install the default settings.

  • Unit is dead, No blinks - Problem in the standby power section. Might check fuse, R607, Q601, IC601, R612 and VDR601 (should show open).
  • Continuous blink once a second, no pausing - No reply from the jungle IC301 data bus is busy, shorted to ground, or held high), IK video path is defective.
  • One blink - not used for the self-diagnosis
Two blinks - B+ over current protection (OCP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of any of the circuits

    I just got mine back from the shop for the very same problem. For about a week it would work if I unplugged it and left it unplugged for a bit, but had to do it EVERY time, until finally it just crapped out. Took over $250 to fix, but hey, can't buy this tv for that little!

Remote control for the LCT3285TA


Good News! I found a universal one that works with my LCT3285TA. It's the GE Universal Remote Control, 5 Device w/learning. SKU: 24950

It isn't very expensive, and can be found at many Target stores.
You can even check its availability in your local Target on their website. I haven't deciphered the date code on the packages, but look for ones with an 8 or at least a 7 in the 4 digit code on the back.

One of the AKAI codes in the TV section of the code list works fine with this model TV. I forget which code it is at the moment or I'd list it here.


Good Luck

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.

AKAI LCT3285TA seems to be stuck in "Standby"


Greetings,

We own a small TV repair shop in Ohio and have ran into similar problems with this TV.

To fix this problem we replaced 3 caps near and in the powersuppy of the TV.

This TV is very sensitive to electrical problems ( more then most if that's possible) so check the caps near the PSU.

Over all this TV is a fairly decent product.
