Replacing the power supply would be the solution. The power supply would fail in about 90% of the time but it could also be a main board.
There are a number of capacitors in the 5 and 24 volts lines that became defective and will need to be replace to restore the functionality of the TV.
This type of repairs might not be a DIY without a multimeter, soldering iron and hand soldering.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

TV goes to blank screen standby after one second of normal functioning green power light on. When in standby state, the TV is blank like it's off and the red standby light blinks FOUR times.


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Sound but no picture on a akai lct3201td


There could be 2 failures with your TV:
1. The power supply might no be providing 24 volts to the back light inverter board or the voltage is low.
2. If the voltage is normal then is more likely a defective back light inverter board.
The best way to know if you have a back light inverter problem would be to shine the light from a flash light near the screen and observe it from a 45 degrees angle and you should be able to see a fainted image. No image at this point might mean a power supply failure. If the image is there but fainted, then the back light inverter board is defective.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

AKAI 32" LCD HDTV WILL NOT TURN ON


The only solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to jah2mil@hotmail.com
