Authorized Repair Centers for Akai Flat Panel TV

My 1 year old Akai 32" flat panel suddenly lost its picture. There was a strong "electronic" odor and then the screen went blank.

When I tried to turn it back on, all I get is the blue AKAI flash screen, then the screen goes blank and back to standby.

I want to get it to a repair center authorized to do warranty repairs but can't find anything about Akai's authorized service centers. Do you know how I can locate one? Thank you.

tmg236@aol.comMy AKAI 20" LCD TV was purchased two years ago at Radio Shack. The screen went black yesterday. There is absolutely NO picture, just sound. I am very disppointed to have read the similiar problems stated on this website. There is no answer on their technical support line and no response to my emails to them.

I have a seven year old H&B LCD 32 tv...model AV32OAD. All of sudden it wont turn on. I'm getting a blinking green light so its getting a signal. Just not going on. What do i do?

At 7 years old your TV needs to be replaced. To repair a TV this old would cost as much as a new one and not give you as good a picture. If you can't afford a new TV look at refurbished models.

For the past couple days, my 32" samsung LCD will cut off by itself. It won't come back on unless I unplug it. A little while later the same thing occurs again. The TV is not even a year old yet. What...

Since it is still under Samsungs' 1 year warranty period, you can call 1-800-samsung and they will set up the repair with the closest authorized service center at no cost to you.

The power light suddenly went out. We Can't put

Doomed? Maybe... It sounds like your set may have suffered from a power supply or system board failure. The only real way to know for sure is to have it checked out by a reputable TV repair person.

If you check in your owner's manual there is a listing of authorized repair centers for your particular set. I would try to get it to one of those service centers since they have been factory trained to repair that brand of television and stand a much better chance of diagnosing the problem correctly the first time rather than someone else who can only replace parts until the unit starts working again....a pretty expensive route to go!

We have INSIGNIA 32 inch TV which two years old.Now suddenly it started to display white lines . But the inbuilt DVD picture is good. what would be the problem

Display distortion can be caused by close proximity of other electronic devices which interfere with broadcast signals. Try moving other electronics farther away. More details and tips can be found in the owner's manual.

No picture ; no sound

the red blinking light usually has a pattern that gives you a code to the possible problem.
Maybe you have a bad power supply board. You have to open the panel and do a few tests on the power supply's outputs to be sure.
It produces a variety of voltages for different parts of the tv ie. the plasma display panel and the audio system. The components supplying power to the audio system may have failed a year ago and recently the pdp.

plasma tv's are expensive to repair, most of the time you can get a better tv for the same price. You can reduce that cost by learning and troubleshooting it yourself.
