Akai Television - With no repair man in site!

My Akai TV. has gone wacko...Wherever the screen is suppose to be a dark black...it is fuzzy black and has a green hue around it. I paid $1,000 for this 42 in. and not a repair man in site. Are we suppose to just throw these things away?
Never buy a Akai from Sams Club again!

I worked for Akai tech support when it was still available over the phone. Now, they only have a website. The reason no one wants to repair the set is they have no idea how to obtain parts. During the end of their production run, Akai had a lot of problems with availability of replacement parts. Parts for the repair of your set are likely available from the company that distributed the TVs here in the U.S., however, the total cost of repair will cost you nearly or more than a new LCD. There is a circuirt board inside your TV that needs to be replaced. The cost of the part with labor added will bring the billl to at least $300. At walmart.com they have a 42" Viore selling for $578. They have a 32" Viore with DVD attached for $398, and a 32" 1080p for $349. There are other brands and selections for higher prices and other Viores as well, but I think you get the point. Do you want to spend a few hundred dollars repairing a TV that is out of warranty when the same amount of money will practically put you into a new set? If you decide you want to repair the one you have anyway, please post a comment with the model of the TV you have and I will help you obtain the part needed to complete the repair.

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 additional assistance so that I can help you further.

42" ILO Television Problem


same here model lct42ha36 for less than 90 days some say you can take it back to walmart, hurry. you can call ilo at 800-216-5156 with model and s/n and they will give you a number for akai 800-428-1105 or tatung 888-428-1105 to call depending on which made it. I called akai and they had me fax a copy of receipt and the transaction number they gave me to set up a in home repair by a service center at no cost they say (i hope) it is cover for one year parts and labor and you can go back within 90 days and buy extended warrenty for 2 more years for about $60. I'm over 90 days so i'm going through the process. Repost to this site and let me know how it goes. I'll repost if I can with a follow up when they come out.
