Akai won't turn on

I have a 32 inch Akai TV that was bought at Christmas time. It was a refurbished system so that could be the root of the problem.

I come home today and now everytime we try to turn it on the green light comes on, and then it shuts back to red with a kind of thumping noise. I'm beginning to get frustrated with this thing and if anyone can diagnose the problem it'd be appreciated.

    AKAI TV shut down and will not come back on. No red or green light.

    Same problem - Green light comes on but no picture or sound. VERY FRUSTRATED. How do you even get support or warranty for this 3rd rate company?

    I have the same problem! Turn it off n will not come back on! What I did from the start of it was to hard reboot the tv by unplugging the nit for bout 5 secs. that worked for a week but now the stupid thing will not power on. I get the same red light that blinks green for a split sec. Really pissed off! I also can hear a high pitch whine from the tv when this happens.

    I have the same problem. turn it on the green light comes on for about 2 seconds and then back to red. TV never comes on.

    My mom has this TV and when we hooked up Comcast cable the tech told us to unplug the TV and wait for 10 seconds to plug it back in. That has worked up until today - now it doesn't turn on at all, the light goes green for a split second, then back to red and never turns on. It makes a high-pitched whiny sound when it is trying to turn on.

    Hopefully we can find another route to fix it than sending it to Akai - sounds like you will never get your TV back from them!

    me 2 at first i had 2 unplug it for like 5sec and then it would work until i turned it off. at times i push the power button and the red light would go out and no light would come on. it seems like wheni push power button it drains all of its power. sometimes i press power button 200 times before it will turn on. I SAY WE START A PETITION!

    I have the same problem after 14 months. Akai is a over brand of samsung. The customer service number is samsung but they say they don't handel akai any more, and tranfer the call to a answering machine. We need to get together and start some ****. I paid $660.00 for my tv and for it to only last a little over a yerar is *********. My name is Robert e-mail me at woodmet1@yahoo.com

Same problem. I've been able to get my Akai to turn on by turning off the main power switch (rocker switch - not the push button). Wait 'til the red light goes out. Turn the rocker switch back on. Immediately after the red light comes on, press the "on" button on the side of the set.

Akai sucks. I've had two. Both with same problem. Their written warranty sounds great, but in reality, their warranty service is beyond pathetic.

Bought first one from Sam's club. Learned that in my town of over 300,000, the nearest authorized repair was more than 50 miles away, therefore, they said I had to drive it myself. Sam's club, after a bunch of BS, let me exchange it for a newer version. About the same problem, not near as bad, but still exist. Not more Akais for me.

There should be audio out sockets at its rear side. Refer user manual for details about how to connect it with external audio output devices. If you feel any difficulty, contact the authorized dealer.

Most TV's now connect via HDMI leads. If your surround system doesn't have these then you will not be able to pass the signals. Some HDMI cables don't always pass the signals so make certain you have a good one that can.
However if the TV has a optical lead you can still pass the sound from the TV to your system. Assuming the system has an optical connection.

Power supply


Its possible that it is the power supply. If you wanted me to take a loot at it I could but you would need to remove the power supply from the TV and ship it to me. The power supply has been a common fail point of TV's, VCR's and other home electronics in the past several years. Let me know if this is something you would like to discuss further. I just need contact info.
