I was recently playing Halo3 on my cousins Akai, when I decided to change the display resolution from 420p to 720p then to 1080i. I'm sure you know, but just in case, yes the T.V. supports it. In fact it changed resolutions no problem, then about fifteen seconds later, it just started beeping and tried to turn off, and then I heard a pop, and the whole system went dead, no standby light blinking, nothing. I'm not a technician but most time when my CRT televisions went bad all I had to do was check the fuse and replace it. This time the fuse was fine so I took a look around and noticed that the caps were blown. Again I'm not a technician, so I took it to my friend who is. I also used a solution I found on here to help my friend know where to test and what to look for. But that solution involved a red blinking standby light, this tv has nothing. I was hoping one of you may be able to send me a schematic for the mlt166a smps, my friend has done alot of testing and replacing of the blown parts, but we can't find the last part that needs replacing. And I don't have 70 dollars for a new smps. Any help would be Greatly appreciated.

After searching the owners manual I find that there is nothing mentioned about the screen resolution i.e. 480p to 1080p.
This set is capable of your desired resolution and as far as I can tell it auto selects because it senses the input video and decides which is the best setting for that source.
It's important to understand that you need 1080p video to use it at it's full capabilities. It won't give you a 1080p resolution from a VCR or a standard DVD player. You need a DVD player that is capable of producing a 1080p encoded video. Some satellite receivers are capable of that but you need to make sure you know what resolution that you are sending to the television.
Local TV stations won't usually broadcast HD at 1080p. Your best bet is to use a DVD player that is capable of that high resolution for your best picture.
Please note that what it says in the owners manual about "Resolution" has nothing to do with the 480p, 720p or 1080p signals, your set selects that automatically it will start by selecting the 1080p then goes to 720p then 420p it's dependent on the video you send to the set.
Please note the "resolution" function is actually like a "sharpness" control.
Your video input (tuner, VCR, DVD, games and etc.) is likely your problem.

I do not think there aren't any new power supplies available to fix these LCDs. The only way to make the LCD work again is to have someone to repair the power supply.
