Our tv will not turn on

Hi there. We were watching tv the other night and all of a sudden it turned off. we tryed to turn it back on, the little red light flashed to turn on but wouldn't turn on. Would this be a bulb?? This model is an Akai HDTV 1080i projection (I think) The models that come up don't seem to be the right ones. I hope you can help.

Our AKAI was just 14 months old. A few days ago, it died also. Blank screen, no sound, but the timer light will flash on a couple of times when you try to power it up. It even sounds like it wants to turn on. I paid a tech to come to my house $65 and it turns out to be the power supply $385. I checked other chat boards and many people are having this same problem with their AKAI 42" (PT4298HD) televsion. A real piece of junk this model! Sorry for the bad news!

TV just turned off while watching it - red power light flashing now and burning smell


The flashing red light means there is a problem that cannot be fixed on it's own. there is a good chance it is shot. You may have to take it in but most likeley it will cost close what replacing it would cost.

My 32" Element LCD tv is broken. One night I was watching tv and all teh sudden there was blue, red and yellow lines running horizontally across teh screen, audio was fine. I turned it off and unplugged...


Yes!
It has suffered a breakdown in the power supply and the damage has also spread as far as the sustain boards that control video and convergence. This is not a DIY and the repair for parts is $300 + labour. However, get a few quotes. At least a 32 in is a little more transportable than a 6' model

Some el.components are loose on tv circuit board.I have removed the back cover,supported tv picture tube 45 deg.against wall.This tv is heavy!One screw on left holds the circuit board to bottom case.Removed and supported this board on few heavy books.Turned tv on and gently probed all the componets on top of the board with plastic drinking straw.In my case transistors Q-830 and Q-421 needed resolder loose joints.These components are mounted on flat aluminium heat sink strips located sligtly left of center of the circuit board.Also blobed bit of silicone into base hole and foot of alu.heat sink to support it.

Status light just flashes red and will not turn on


Firstly, unplug your tv for at least 4 hours. Over night is better. This is what we call a Hard or Master Reset.
This should solve your problem. If by chance it doesn't, then more than likely your power supply board is shot.
Very common in the newer tv's

Power button Flashes


For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
Thanks,
