    found this on anther post
    Checked HOT for power and i got plenty on the collector over 1000v. The
    base showed less than 10v if I remember right. There was no high
    voltage kicking in at all, so I checked part of the fly back for
    voltage. I downloaded a schematic for a for a samsung
    4416 chassis, which is the same as the 4298. Voltage at pin 10 or 11
    should be 117v, I had nothing. Traced back from schematic and found
    r465( 0.47 ohm resistor} was open, but not burnt. Replaced it and
    everything fired up. This resistor acts like fuse. A 25cent part can
    kill a 1000 dollar tv. It works now and I am happy

Changed lamp and TV won't turn on, power light flashes 3 times


Hi,
Red light blinking 3 times shows problem with lamp cover.
Lamp cover is not fixed securely in your tv after lamp replacement. Lamp cover is first thing that was removed to replace lamp, check lamp cover and make sure its back in place properly.
Thanks.

2006 Akai 23" Led TV says it gets no signal.


hi, the input blocks are where you will need to look for this problem. sometimes these block connection become lose and detached from the main logic board. this could happen due to a minor crack in the solder or to much pressure when inserting cables and input rac jacks etc.. replacing or repairing this section of your TV's board will fix this issue.

Auto Focus Stoped Working


If the convergence is very far off the convergence ICs are bad and need to be replaced first. If the convergence is close and it wont correct it might just be an insect or some dust on the sensors at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock posistions behind the screen.

No Picture


Hear say has it that Toshiba who made alot of the internal parts for this model can offer more help than Akai.
As for the other problems... first Id try leaving the TV unplugged for a day or so. This is a great TV, picked mine up for 400 from my boss who baught it a few years back for 1400 from Sams Club. If I hear a solution I'll be sure to come back here and post it.
