It's the #1 plaguing issue with flat panel TV in all brands. Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. Or, it maybe something simple like a blown fuse inside the TV. The most common thing to go out on flat panel TVs is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.

3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.


I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Akai Flatscreen T V will shut off write After U TURN IT ON


sounds to me like capacitor faults on power supply,,,check for swollen capacitors that are leaking a black substance from the top of capacitor when swollen,,,(easy enough to see),,try replacing the capacitors with the exact same value in uf or mf but use a slightly higher volatage capacitor,,ie,,if it says 16v on the side of capacitor use the same or a higher voltage (if you use a higher voltage capacitor make sure theres enough space to refit as the higher the voltage the larger the capacitor,,make sure you replace it with the same amount of uf or mf which is also written on the side of the capacitor,,,,,hope this helps,,,

On the power supply board there is a VA & VS voltage that you need to check to see if they are reading right. On the inside of the panel there is a lable that will tell you what the Voltages should be for VA & VS. If they are ok, they you probabaly have a bad Y board, if the votages are wrong then you need to replace the power supply. And check for bulged caps on power supply too.
