Screen powers up then goes blank after 2 seconds

Hello support,

I have an lcd tv Akai model, the screen shows the Akai logo when I power up for about 2 seconds then goes blank but the power indicator light still stays green. I ordered and replaced the inverter but still has the same problem. There is sound from the tv. Please can you help me with this problem? Thanks

Re: Screen powers up then goes blank after 2 seconds

Hi, was there a resolution to this? I am experiencing the same problem with LCT3285TA purchased at Radio Shack in Media, PA. Radio Shack has refused to service the unit and has put me over to Akai for the manufacturer's warranty. I'd like to know what to expect and if this problem with the Logo coming up and the unit shutting off/restarting can be easily fixed, thanks.

Re: Screen powers up then goes blank after 2 seconds

Which TV input are you using?  On the LCT3285TA, the S-video and composite (yellow RCA jack) use the same audio input connections.  If you have a bad S-video cable, you might get this effect. 

Need more information on how you are feeding signals to your TV.

How do I fix akai TV model #lct2785ta? TV screen remains blank and black, after I power it on.

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Rca tv/dvd combo L32HD32D powers on and for 2 seconds shows, Please Wait, on the screen then goes black. What do i do?

After the screen goes black, do you still have sound or you have none but a blank screen? If you have no picture and sound does the power LED in front of the tv indicate that the set is on, or does it go into standby? Please provide this info so that I can help you with your problem.

Screen goes black after 2 seconds

This is a mean problem, and I feel for anyone who has it.

This can be caused by a bad power board, a bad main board or a lcd LCD panel.

An authorized repair shop would be able to substitute the main and power boards to find the source of the fault, but you don't have that luxury.

Unless you want to risk paying for an expensive part you don't need, I would suggest you take it to an Akai repair shop.

Screen goes to black..still has sound

Hello fredva,

More then likely it is the video board. Let me explain why. If the entire power supply was bad you would have what is called a "dead set" meaning no picture and no sound. Now in the likelihood that just the section of the power supply that supplied power to the video board was bad, now that might be the case, however unlikely as it is. Now the best way to see if this is the case would be to measure the DC voltages of the power supply to determine if that is the case. For this task you will need a voltage meter and a schematic of the TV. If you have a background in electronics this would be a snap, if you do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest that you take the Tv to a qualified TV repair shop so that the repairs can be done.

If it is just the video board you will need to follow the replacement instructions exactly as the schematic will show you.
You can usually order the board from the manufacture or one of their customer support shops. Go to the manufacture's web site and look under customer support or repairs.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,
