Question about Akai LCT3215/26 32 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

I have only one TV since my last one went out and now it will not turn on. When my fiance tried to use it two days ago it would turn on then when the blue AKAI screen appeared it would turn back off. The next day it wouldn't turn on at all. So I unplugged it and unhooked all the appliances from it and then plugged it back in and it turned on. Today it will not turn on at all it is just making this high frequency humming noise and it only clicks when I hit the power button. The light is red and it will not turn green. What is going on and how do I fix it? I have the back off and all dust has been cleaned off and there is a little black box that clicks when I hit the power button but I don't know if that is the problem. I really need this TV to work and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!!!

SOURCE: power light blinks red - tv will not come on

I bought one of these tv's at a thrift store and it had the same problem, orange light blinking and static sound coming out of the speakers, no video at all.
The problem was the power supply board, this power supply has multiple outputs that feed the circuitry, 12V, 24v, 5V.
There was nine electrolitic capacitors I had to replace to fix it, all of them were bulged they are easy to spot, I measure one of them that was supposed to measure 1000uF but measured only 65uF. you can buy these from digikey for about 50 cents each, they need to be rated at 105 deg c and the profile has to be below the heat sink otherwise they will hit the top of the heat sink, the spacing between the leads has to be 5mm so they fit in the pcb. I replaced 3 1000uF/25v, 3 470uF/16v and 3 1000uF/16v and that fixed the problem, I bought this tv broken for 100 bucks fixed it with 6 bucks.
Good luck, don't perform repair if you are not familiar with dangerous AC voltage inside the TV.

SOURCE: AKAI LCT3285TA seems to be stuck in "Standby"

Greetings,

We own a small TV repair shop in Ohio and have ran into similar problems with this TV.

To fix this problem we replaced 3 caps near and in the powersuppy of the TV.

This TV is very sensitive to electrical problems ( more then most if that's possible) so check the caps near the PSU.

Over all this TV is a fairly decent product.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Akai LCT3285TA Television won't turn on

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

I have a GE TV model: 27GT271 and no sound


Possible cause of the problrm is bad/poor solder on the grounds for the tuner circuit shield an the bottom (solder side) of the circuit board. Grounds need a wire jumper from point to point. This was a common problem for those sets and ocassionally it would take out the eeprom chip with it. (Various other problems were shrinking picture/fuzzy picture and intermitt. power)

Tv not turning on


This is going to sound pretty elementary, but my guess is that the power cord is defective. That TV model is relatively new (I have a similar one, bought about 8 months ago) and presumably is still under warranty. I would have the power cord replaced by a repair shop.
