TV repair A friend of mine has a TV 42" Akai that is malfunctioning. The local technicians in Macao say, there is no way to repair it, need to buy a new one... Is there a problem in a major component or design that make it no viable to repair? Any problem with power supply I can do by myself, and I will open it tomorrow.... thanks, Frank

Tv has video and humming in th audio


If the humming sound remain the same in all inputs (DVD player, game console, cable, etc), then this is an indication that the sound output circuitry gone to malfunction. It is commonly caused by faulty sound output IC, bad solder joints, insufficient voltage supply, improper grounding.
The unit needs to check by a qualified TV technician to isolate where the fault came from. I would advice you to ask for an estimate first to your local repair shop to have an idea how much money you are going to spend (service fee plus parts lets say sound output IC) sending the unit in.
Feel free to ask question if you have further queries.
Have a nice day!

Akai tv kit model CT21BD on and off (restart) problem pls provide salution?


This issue is related to a power problem in as much as the TV turns off on it's own.

The problem is consistent with overheating on the power supply board of the TV.

The power supply board of the TV has few capacitors and IC. If any of these IC's gets short or become weak, it can cause the TV to turn off on it's own.

When current passes from electric outlet to the power supply board of TV. The current also goes to the weak/faulty part, then the current stops or slow and the board overheats and TV shuts off on it's own.

This is a common problem faced by many other users too. To solve this issue, check the power supply board and read it with a meter and continuity tester, in order to detect the faulty part and replace the faulty part on the board which is short due to which power supply board

It's a bit technical job but yes its not at all a costly repair to do or get it done by the technician.

You can buy these part at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like ""(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored. Or you can by a refurbished complete power board to save you some stress.

I have a 30 inch full size RCA television, ive had about 2years, purchased used, but ive had no problems with it until now. I want to get the TV fixed but i cant spend a fourtune on repairs, is it...

You would need to contact a TV service technician in your area to check the set and give you the cost of repair. There are probably some listed in your local telephone directory, or you might get recommendations from your friends or neighbors.

Standby LED blinks 7 times and what can I do and do I need to have a repair man come. If so on the repairman what do I need to tell him as far as definition of problem

Dailive Tech. Solution:
You need to compare the nature functioning or your tv from the normal function to the present malfunction. Detail all your actions or whatever you press or happen right after the symptoms occur. And as much as possible you must also provide the tv manual to help the technician. It is also better if you hire experience or authorized sony technician for more accurate and sure trouble diagnostics.

Horizontal Line

If you have a line going across the screen, that is a repair issue. Akai USA is no longer in the TV business, so getting your set repaired will be a drawn out and tedious process. Ask yourself if you want to sink $200+ into fixing this set or use the money toward the purchase of a new one. If you want to go forward with repair, visit once you have a work order from a local service center stating what part(s) are needed for repair. Warning: many Akai parts are no longer available.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need further assistance so that I can help you further.

After a few minutes the color goes to intense red and green

My tv didn't turn green, but the red separated significantly. It started off happening after a few minutes of being on (I suppose the defective part was "warming up"), then it got to where it was like that immediately upon turning the tv on. In my case, I had to pay a tv repair man $350 for a new part. There are 2 microcircuits that control the color alignment--one that controls the red only, and the other controlls the other 2 colors, blue and green I believe. Maybe your part is the blue/green controller, mine was red. The repair man said these parts fail so rarely they don't stock the part. The cost of repair may be different for a different part, but either way you have to choose if it's worth that cost to you. If you get rid of it, I'll buy your tv stand ;-), I bought mine from a friend and didn't get the stand in the deal.

Fujitsu 42" P42HHA10S

All I got out of FixYa was a link to the Fujitsu web site. Waste of money really.

I have since taken it to a local technician and paid over $600 to have the power supply replaced.

Probably should have saved my $15 - $20 and done that in the first and learn.

Take it to a TV repair technician. It is either a cracked solder on the power supply board or requires a complete new power supply. No easy fix sorry.....
