Akai LCT3285TA Television won't turn on

This TV has stand by light on red, hit on, light dims or goes out wont turn green, screen stays black. Disconnect plug 20 seconds, hold down manual on-button (side of tv) while replugging TV. Then stand by light turns green and set comes on. It has been working like this for several months.
Would this be a switching problem or is it all in the power supply. With as many people having this problem Akai must know the solution by now.

The problem is in the power supply(they know about it good luck fighting them)but there is good news.you can remove the power supply and replace electrolytic caps,EC18,EC19,EC20 all of them are 1000mf at16 volt use 1000mf at25 volt.you can also go to shopjimmy.com enter model number you will see power supply part number MLT169B
it will be cheaper for you to replace the caps,the board cost about $80.00 from them

Akai LCD tv model LCT3285TA will not respond to remote. Green and red lights at sensor are out


Hello,

The most common cause of this type of power issue is a failure of the filter capacitors on the power supply board. Below is a picture of the board with the faulty capacitors circled, there are 2 more under one of the big black heat sinks. The board can be repaired by replacing the bad capacitors. Below the picture is a link to a kit of the correct parts for the board repair if you want to do the job yourself.

My akai lcd 32.5" tv will not stay on and all it does is flash the blue screen with akai then turns right back off and i was thinking power suply might be bad. what could it be?


You could be right it sound like the power suply, has it got a AC adaptor power suply,bit like a laptop charger? goes from mains to a black box then from box to the TV?

My akai lct3285ta wont turn on,the stand by light wont even come on


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Make sure the wall outlet is working and the TV is plugged in. Please also check that the remote has fully charged batteries in it. If still the problem persists then unplug the TV from the power out let and again plug it in after five minutes and try to use a different power socket.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

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.
