Re: LCT3201AD

It sounds like one of two issues. Either a bad capacitor (a very common problem on this model, apparently) or a heat issue. Since it takes so little time to do, I'm inclined to throw out the heat issue. Open up the back and see if you see any capacitors leaking, or crooked. I can't find images for capacitors in your machine, but I did find a site about bad capacitors on PC system boards - the capacitors are basically the same thing, so it might help you identify that. If you do see bad capacitors, either solder on new ones, or just replace the entire board. It should be simple to replace. I can't find parts for this online, but you should be able to get them either from Sharp or from a local repair shop.

After i power my polaroid tv on the screen shows for about 3 seconds then goes black what causes that

Its a Lcd so if it stays on turn off all the lights (we want a dark room) and with flashlight look carefully at the screen to see if you see a faint image of a picture there or not.

Akai tv/dvd combo LCT3201ad 32" auto-shutoff or turns off after 3-5 seconds after being turned on.

Change input device to some other like a DVD player and see.
Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry.
If problem persists, call in a qualified service technician.

Sound but no picture

Does sound comes out of TV speakers? Or you have "home theater" hooked up to?
In first occasion: TV turns on, stays on, display blinks once, then nothing?
Inverter is at fault. Second occasion: TV turns on, stays on, display glows dark, sound OK, no picture: T-con board at fault. Third occasion: TV turns on, shuts off, sound is coming through "home theater"-OK. Power supply or inverter, or T-con are at fault. TV need major diagnostics and repair in every case. Let me know if you can handle that. Will guide you through the process.

Alba tv picture appears but then disappears sound stays on

these tv's are prone to several problems involing the backlight inverter power supply...the main symptom is the one you are goes on lights up for a second then goes dark even though the sound remains..and you can switch channels..n they change too....the most likely cause of this failure in my experience is several high voltage electrolytic capacitors in the inverter power supply have dried up and place a high esr value on the circuit ...causing it to shut down...most of the sets I have repaired with this problem have 2 electrolytics rated 10 uF at 450VDC...and replacing these with high temp/high frequency electrolytic capacitors usually does the trick

I have an Akai LCT3201AD TV which works fine for about half an hour and then the screen will go dark. But I am still able to hear the sound. Any ideas?

Hi, your TFT tv has a problem on the video section (video card ) the processor is over heating or has  lick age   needs cooling down for it to work well , Technician should improvise  the cooling system of the processor .
I Suggest  a  12 volts fan addition on  the video card processor to cool it .

good luck
