Question about Akai CFTD2052 20 in. EDTV-Ready LCD TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

The tv stopped working. Can't get power to turn on.

We have a wall mounted AKAI model #cftd2052 20" flat screen tv that completely stopped working on Thursday. It's only 4 years old. We can't get the power to turn on at the tv or with the remote. I took it down and tried other outlets, to no avail. There was a storm overnight that affected our power because when we woke up, we found our clocks blinking. Nothing else was affected in the house, computers, tv's, etc. Any ideas? Thanks for your help! D

I think your unit suffered what we call a surge current.it happens when sudden power out and on of the electricity.a large amount of current is flowing instantly when the power came back,like waves.so units which permanently plugged-in suffers.especially the tv etc.so if you can open your unit and check for blown-out fuse or any related incident you can find in your unit.its best to have a tech's help for that.i'm sure there is a defective part/parts in your unit.

Seems like the power source was dying, and by unplugging and plugging back in you temporarily fixed it. But it sounds as if it's completely gone. You might need a new TV, but it sounds as if the power source went bad.

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

Tryiny to put my Akai LCT3201AD TV on the wall


For a set this size, there should be at least 4 mounting holes for a wall bracket. Please note that wall mounting is an option so the holes may be covered by plastic caps to hide the holes. These holes should be in a box shape around 1 foot wide or so.

Attaching to wall mount


The 4 screws that are commnly used are short because they are ususally wide in diameter. Besides if they are too long then they might damage the boards on the TV.
