AKAI 48 in. LCD HDTV with bad signal board

Bought an AKAI 48 in. LCD HDTV Viella 1080P Model No. LCT42Z6TM for my son at Sam's Club 03/03/2007. Stoped working less than a year later. Green backround with some square pixsels on screen. Son lost paper work. Could not take back to store. Had been mounted on wall all this time. Got new Plasma for son Dec 08 and decided to take TV to repair shop. Tech told me I need a new signal board which is no longer made; discontinued. Can not get intouch with AKAIUSA to get help or advise. I think there have to be parts even if they are used. Too much money invested to throw away. Did not purchase extended warranty. Never used all warranties bought in the past and now that I needed one did not have. Expensive lesson. Please, any advise or help welcomed.
Thanks
Ed

Option 1
The web site shopjimmy.com has tons of parts for your TV.
I looked through it and they don't have a signal board right now.
It's the best place I know to find the parts you need.
Sooner or later, they should acquire one.

Option 2
Fix the signal board.
Try to find a SERVICE MANUAL for your TV on the web. This manual will have parts list, schematics, and test points for circuit boards for your TV.
A electronic tech should have no trouble fixing it.

Good Luck

You may have bad capacitors on the main board where the signal is processed. These caps are as labeled: c280,c323,c302 and c320- replace this one first (it usually fixes the problem) Replace these caps with 100uf @35V

LCT42Z6TM


My tv is almost a year old also. Having the same problem as others with the squares. Sam's Club saids it's out of their hands. You paid that much for a tv somebody should be responsible for their workmenship lasting longer than a year.

I had the exact same problem already and my LCD is less than 8mo old. One of the techs from AKAI told me that its a known problem and many tv's were coming back "unserviceable". They now have a "supposed" fix for the problem. I only hope it really works and its not just a "carry-over" until the warranty ends. I am beginning to think its a quality issue and the units may just be defective. Thismay be thier way of doing a quick-fix vs. recalling all those tv's. This is what he gave me to as a solution to give the serviceman when he comes to fix the LCD.

AKAI model LCT42Z6TM: If there is no image or a badly distorted image with horizontal static lines, usually with four boxes in all four corners of the screen, there is a possible fix for this. There are four capacitors on the main board that have been identified as the primary cause of this symptom. Replace the capacitors at location numbers C280, C302, C320, C323 - 100UF 35 VOLTS [dxh]
