Question about Akai LCT3201AD 32 in. LCD Television

5 Answers

Power Supply burned up

Puff of smoke, nasty smell, won't come on even standby led is off. Opened case and found power supply board fried (burn marks). Unable to find anyone within 100 miles willing to fix it - the only two shops that even handle Akai are doing only warranty work because they have so much. Akai has the power supply (MLT-169A) but won't sell it to me because I am not an authorized servicer. MegMeet (manufactures power supply) so far has not answered my emails. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to buy a power supply? (I can easily put it in once I get it).

    Unfortunately it is an internal board.

  • SteveInVa Oct 07, 2007

    I called and emailed a total of 15 online sources
    and more local shops than I can count. Funny I found
    four sources for the mainboard of the TV but the only
    place I found either an original PS or a replacement
    was Akai - see above.

    Burned out Power supply Akai LCT3201AD.

  • joeMG May 24, 2008

    TV will not turn on.
    AS of today I found the following:
    The Part # for Power supply for AKAI LCT3201AD is
    1023327-N/A (MLT169A on Board)
    I found the part on
    This solved the problem of finding the power supply.
    Next step is to install it and make the TV turn on again.
    Will update when it does

    I have successfully repaired several dozen AKAI Power supplies from other users right here on as well as I even have an instructable there "AKAI LCT2715 Power Supply Removal" If you could please contact me with some clear pictures of the damaged area of the power supply I could try to let you know if this is something I can repair. Alterantively I could just have you send it to me and I could look at it first hand.

If this is an external PSU then you can buy a budget replacement via e-bay. Just be sure that the voltage is the same but buy one with more current rating otherwise it will run too hot.

Power supply not working?

To see if power supply works
unplug the psu from the motherboard and drives
then plug the power cord into psu and wall
the fan should come on letting you know that it works.

you can also get a multimeter and check each individual connector on the 20/24 pin connector to motherboard.
check the psu docs for the correct voltages to each pin

If you smelled smoke then chances are that something may have gotten toasted.
remove all expansion cards and try to turn on computer if nothing happens then the motherboard may have gotten toasted.
Check the motherboard and expansion cards along with memory for shorts and burn spots.

Plug in my desktop one night and it started smoking, i opened it up and the power supply had a burn on it. i bought a new one and still will not turn on. it did try to power up a few times but no...

It sounds like your motherboard has also fried. Whatever caused your power supply to burn up caused excessive voltage to go to your motherboard, and it will need to be replaced. There is a possibility that other things connected to your motherboard also fried such as the memory or cpu but you won't be able to determine that unless you replace the motherboard. In my professional opinion, it would be more cost effective to get a new computer at this point. Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya, since it answered your question; even if the news isn't very good. Thanks!

I had the same problem you hear the click but it stays orange which is standby mode never went to red which is on, I also smelled a bit of a burning electrical smell, so I took off the back case and watched the main board sparking and smoking right in front of me, my power supply was fine, be careful before you order a new one. The trouble with mine is that's it's about 99.9% impossible to find a part for it.

Intel D865PERLL Motherboard will not power up

Hi nkda2000, this is as close as I could find for power schematics. Intel D865PERL

(There is no Intel D865PERLL board). Sure it's a typo. Have done searches for D865PERLL & found it (Not on Intle's web site) but when looking at the specs it's listed as D865PERL. (One L ) not two.

I hope the Technical Product Specification pdf can help you check the power on the motherboard.

Board power up failure

Well the say never answer a question with a question, so i will simply post 2 answers.

1. If you built the PC yourself, you may need to look at power requirements for this particular motherboard and perhaps transplant the board into a case with a larger power supply.
(ie: 300, 350 watt power supply or better )

2. If this is an older PC and someone else built it for you, you may need to consider that power supply units do burn out in time and may need to be replaced.

The power LED simply means there is power coming to the light itself, but may not be enough to sustain an entire motherboard and components etc.
This to me sounds very much like either the power supply is too small or burned out.
