14 month old Akai LCT3201AD wouldn't turn off with remote yesterday until I got with in a few feet of sensor. Changed batteries now the TV won't turn on. Push power on set or remote, green light comes on for a few seconds then switches back to red. Tried unplugging the power over night. Same response as last night, then wouldn't turn green at all. Unplugged it again for 30 minutes, back to green light coming on for a few seconds then back to red. Help, were do I take it? can it be fixed? Live in rural northern Minnesota.
Thanks Fred31; I did that and it worked for a while...we were afraid to shut it off, so we just left on for a couple of weeks! Hubby was vacumming and unplugged in accidentally...we have been unable to turn on ever since. Gave up and bought a new tv. Thanks for trying!

Hi there, To check if your remote is working,put in fresh batteries and using your camera fone or a normal fone press on the remote and see if you can see a light emmiting from the front end of the remote to your camera. if you see a light than your remote is fine but if you dont than your remote is faulty and needs to be serviced or replcaed.
good way of testing remote is point it at camera on phone( turn on camera first) and look for flashing light when pressing buttons if no light then remote faulty if it flashes then fault might be with re-server in tv
I crushed my AKAI remote a week after I got it and I purchased a Logitech Harmony remote. It's kind of expensive (100.00) but you install the software in your computer and connect the remote to your computer. A screen comes up and you can type in an unlimited number of devices. All you do is put in the brand and model number and the computer will program the remote for that device. I have at least 10 different devices programmed into mine and works perfectly. Actually the price isn't bad because they wanted 85.00 to replace the remote just for the TV.
If you are electronically inclined, replace the three 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board located above the power switch. They are likely bulging out at the top and failed. They are the three in a row at the top - center of the board, located between the two black heat sinks. Make sure you get caps rated for 105c degrees! I recommend replacing them with 1000uf 25v caps. 35v caps will work but might be a tight fit as they are larger diameter.
Should cost you about $8 for the parts shipped. You can get them from partsexpress or digikey or any good local electronics store. Your local radio shack may have them but they won'y be 105c and thus may not last long.
Not handy, ask around, there is usually some electronic tweaker guy around that will install them for a few bucks.
This has solved the turns on / then off problem every time in the 3 I've done.
I heard that LG TVs have a problem with the TV not responding to the remote control (there is nothing wrong with the remote control). Hopefully your TV is still under the 2 year warranty. Go to LGService.com and report the problem. They told me that it's a common problem. They need to order the part and let me know when it comes in. (my TV is a LG 50PC1DRA)
